    Procedures for Providing Public Input: Public comment for 
consideration by EPA's Federal advisory committees and panels has a 
different purpose from public comment provided to EPA program offices. 
Therefore, the process for submitting comments to a Federal advisory 
committee is different from the process used to submit comments to an 
EPA program office. Federal advisory committees and panels, including 
scientific advisory committees, provide independent advice to EPA. 
Members of the public can submit comments for a Federal advisory 
committee to consider as it develops advice for EPA. They should send 
their comments directly to the Designated Federal Officer for the 
relevant advisory committee. Oral Statements: In general, individuals 
or groups requesting an oral presentation at a public teleconference 
will be limited to three minutes per speaker, with no more than a total 
of 30 minutes for all speakers. Each person making an oral statement 
should consider providing written comments as well as their oral 
statement so that the points presented orally can be expanded upon in 
writing. Interested parties should contact Dr. Holly Stallworth, DFO, 
in writing (preferably via e-mail) at the contact information noted 
above, by June 21, 2010 for the June 24, 2010 teleconference and by 
August 2, 2010 for the August 5, 2010 teleconference, to be placed on 
the list of public speakers. Written Statements: Written statements 
should be supplied to the DFO via e-mail at the contact information 
noted above. Materials received fewer than two days before each 
teleconference may not be delivered to panel members in time for them 
to consider the materials during the teleconference. Written statements 
should be supplied in one of the following electronic formats: Adobe 
Acrobat PDF, MS Word, MS PowerPoint, or Rich Text files in IBM-PC/
Windows 98/2000/XP format. Submitters are requested to provide versions 
of signed documents, submitted with and without signatures, because the 
SAB Staff Office does not publish documents with signatures on its Web 
    Accessibility: For information on access or services for 
individuals with disabilities, please contact Dr. Holly Stallworth at 
(202) 343-9867 or [email protected]. To request accommodation of 
a disability, please contact Dr. Stallworth preferably at least ten 
days prior to each teleconference to give EPA as much time as possible 
to process your request.

    Dated: May 25, 2010.
Anthony F. Maciorowski,
Deputy Director, EPA Science Advisory Board Staff Office.
