proposed by a state permitting authority. Section 505(b)(2) of the CAA 
authorizes any person to petition the EPA Administrator, within 60 days 
after the expiration of this review period, to object to a title V

The proposed permit for the Pirkey Power Plant impermissibly provides 
for exemptions from title V applicable requirements during planned 
maintenance, startup, and shutdown (MSS) activities; and (2) the 
proposed permit must clarify that credible evidence may be used by 
citizens to enforce the terms and conditions of the permit. The claims 
are described in detail in Section IV of the Order.

Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has 90 days from the receipt 
of the Administrator's order to resolve the objections identified in 
Claim 1 of the Order and submit a proposed determination or 
termination, modification, or revocation and reissuance of the SWEPCO 
title V permit in accordance with EPA's objection. The Order issued on 
February 3, 2016 responds to the Petition and explains the basis for
