Control of Air Pollution From Motor Vehicles: Tier 3 Motor 
Vehicle Emission and Fuel Standards

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice; extension of comment period.


SUMMARY: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (``EPA'') is 
announcing an extension of the public comment period for the proposed 
rule ``Control of Air Pollution from Motor Vehicles: Tier 3 Motor 
Vehicle Emission and Fuel Standards'' (the proposed rule is hereinafter 
referred to as ``Tier 3''). EPA published a notice of proposed 
rulemaking, which included a request for comment, in the Federal 
Register on May 21, 2013. The public comment period was to end on June 
13, 2013. The purpose of this document is to extend the public comment 
period an additional 18 days, to July 1, 2013.

DATES: Written comments must be received on or before July 1, 2013.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-
OAR-2011-0135, by one of the following methods:
     www.regulations.gov: Follow the on-line instructions for 
submitting comments.
     Email: [email protected].
     Mail: Air and Radiation Docket and Information Center, 
Environmental Protection Agency, Mailcode: 2822T, 1200 Pennsylvania 
Ave. NW., Washington, DC 20460. In addition, please mail a copy of your 
comments on the information collection provisions to the Office of 
Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB), Attn: Desk Officer for EPA, 725 17th St. NW., Washington, DC 
     Hand Delivery: EPA Docket Center, EPA West Building, Room 
3334, 1301 Constitution Ave. NW., Washington, DC 20460. Such deliveries

special arrangements should be made for deliveries of boxed 
    Instructions: Direct your comments to Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OAR-
2011-0135. EPA's policy is that all comments received will be included 
in the public docket without change and may be made available online at 
www.regulations.gov, including any personal information provided, 
unless the comment includes information claimed to be Confidential 
Business Information (CBI) or other information whose disclosure is 
restricted by statute. Do not submit information that you consider to 
be CBI or otherwise protected through www.regulations.gov or email. The 
www.regulations.gov Web site is an ``anonymous access'' system, which 
means EPA will not know your identity or contact information unless you 
provide it in the body of your comment. If you send an email comment 
directly to EPA without going through www.regulations.gov your email 
address will be automatically captured and included as part of the 
comment that is placed in the public docket and made available on the 
Internet. If you submit an electronic comment, EPA recommends that you 
include your name and other contact information in the body of your 
comment and with any disk or CD-ROM you submit. If EPA cannot read your 
comment due to technical difficulties and cannot contact you for 
clarification, EPA may not be able to consider your comment. Electronic 
files should avoid the use of special characters, any form of 
encryption, and be free of any defects or viruses. For additional 
information about EPA's public docket visit the EPA Docket Center 
homepage at http:[sol][sol]www.epa.gov/epahome/dockets.htm. For 
additional instructions on submitting comments, please refer to the 
notice of proposed rulemaking (Section XI, Public Participation, of the 
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section of the proposed rulemaking document).
