In accordance with section 113(g) of the Clean Air Act, as amended (``CAA'' or the ``Act''), notice is hereby given of a proposed consent decree in Sierra Club v. McCarthy, Civil Action No. 1:16-cv-235 (D. D.C.). On February 12, 2016, the Sierra Club filed a complaint in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, alleging that Gina McCarthy, in her official capacity as Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (``EPA''), failed to perform a non-discretionary duty to grant or deny within 60 days a petition submitted by Sierra Club on September 29, 2015 requesting that EPA object to a CAA Title V permit issued by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (``TDEC'') for the Tennessee Valley Authority's (``TVA'') Bull Run Fossil Plant, located in Clinton, Tennessee. The proposed consent decree would establish a deadline for EPA to take such action.
