Revisions to the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) 
and Title V Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Permitting Regulations and 
Establishment of a Significant Emissions Rate (SER) for GHG Emissions 
Under the PSD Program

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule; extension of comment period.


SUMMARY: On August 26, 2016, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 
issued a proposed rule to revise provisions in the Prevention of 
Significant Deterioration (PSD) and title V permitting regulations 
applicable to greenhouse gases (GHGs) to fully conform with recent 
court decisions. The EPA is extending the comment period on this 
proposed rule that was scheduled to close on December 2, 2016. The EPA 
received a letter requesting the extension of the proposed rule public 
comment period to allow the public additional time to review the rule 
and supporting documentation.

DATES: The public comment period on the proposed rule published in the 
Federal Register on October 3, 2016 (81 FR 68110), is being extended. 
Written comments must be received on or before December 16, 2016.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-
OAR-2015-0355, at http://www.regulations.gov. Follow the online 
instructions for submitting comments.

[[Page 81712]]

Once submitted, comments cannot be edited or removed from 
Regulations.gov. The EPA may publish any comment received to its public 
docket. Do not submit electronically any information you consider to be 
Confidential Business Information (CBI) or other information whose 
disclosure is restricted by statute. Multimedia submissions (audio, 
video, etc.) must be accompanied by a written comment. The written 
comment is considered the official comment and should include 
discussion of all points you wish to make. The EPA will generally not 
consider comments or comment contents located outside of the primary 
submission (i.e., on the Web, Cloud, or other file sharing system). For 
additional submission methods, the full EPA public comment policy, 
information about CBI or multimedia submissions, and general guidance 
on making effective comments, please visit http://www2.epa.gov/dockets/commenting-epa-dockets.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: After considering the request to extend the 
public comment period, the EPA has decided to extend the public comment 
period by 2 weeks, until December 16, 2016. This extension will ensure 
that the public has additional time to review the proposed rule and its 
supporting documents.
