II. Information Specific to the Documents Two sections of the Clean Air Act (CAA) govern the establishment and revision of the national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS). Section 108 (42 U.S.C. 7408) directs the Administrator to identify and list certain air pollutants and then to issue air quality criteria for those pollutants. The Administrator is to list those air pollutants that in his ‘‘judgment, cause or contribute to air pollution which may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare’’; ‘‘the presence of which in the ambient air results from numerous or diverse mobile or stationary sources’’; and ‘‘for which . . . [the Administrator] plans to issue air quality criteria . . .’’ (42 U.S.C. 7408(a)(1)(A)–(C)). Air quality criteria are intended to ‘‘accurately reflect the latest scientific knowledge useful in indicating the kind and extent of all identifiable effects on public health or welfare which may be expected from the presence of [a] pollutant in the ambient air . . .’’ (42 U.S.C. 7408(a)(2)). Under section 109 (42 U.S.C. 7409), the EPA establishes primary (health-based) and VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:50 Oct 17, 2017 Jkt 244001 secondary (welfare-based) NAAQS for pollutants for which air quality criteria are issued. Section 109(d) requires periodic review and, if appropriate, revision of existing air quality criteria. The revised air quality criteria reflect advances in scientific knowledge on the effects of the pollutant on public health or welfare. The EPA is also required to periodically review and revise the NAAQS, if appropriate, based on the revised criteria. Section 109(d)(2) requires that an independent scientific review committee ‘‘shall complete a review of the criteria . . . and the national primary and secondary ambient air quality standards . . . and shall recommend to the Administrator any new . . . standards and revisions of the existing criteria and standards as may be appropriate . . . .’’ Since the early 1980s, this independent review function has been performed by the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC). Presently, the EPA is reviewing the air quality criteria and primary NAAQS for sulfur oxides.1 The EPA’s overall plan for this review is presented in the Integrated Review Plan for the Primary NAAQS for Sulfur Dioxide (IRP). The EPA is currently working to finalize the Integrated Science Assessment for Sulfur Oxides—Health Criteria (ISA), the second draft of which was reviewed by the CASAC at a public meeting in March 2017 (82 FR 11449). The Risk and Exposure Assessment Planning Document for the Review of the Primary National Ambient Air Quality Standards for Sulfur Oxides (REA Planning Document) was also reviewed by the CASAC at this meeting (82 FR 11449). The draft REA and draft PA, which build on information presented in these documents, were the subject of review by the CASAC at a public meeting on September 18–19, 2017 (82 FR 37213). The EPA will consider comments received from the CASAC and the public in preparing revisions to these documents. The draft REA and PA documents, and other documents in this review, referenced above, are available on the EPA’s Technology Transfer Network Web site at https:// www.epa.gov/naaqs/sulfur-dioxide-so2primary-air-quality-standards. The notice of availability for the draft REA and draft PA was originally published on September 19, 2017, with the public comment period closing on October 18, 2017 (82 FR 43756). We received a request from a member of the public to extend the comment period by 30 days. After considering this request, 1 The indicator for the current standard is sulfur dioxide. PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 we are extending the comment period and, as described above, it will now close on November 17, 2017. Dated: October 11, 2017.
