Environmental Protection Agency releases 2015 regulatory agenda

The US Environmental Protection Agency released its 2015 regulatory agenda this week.

The agency is on track to finalize several major rules. Of interest to the National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association is the Waters of the US Rule, which EPA is expected to finalize in April 2015.

Ken Kopocis, deputy assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Water, said that the agency wants to finalize the Clean Water Act jurisdictional rule by the summer of 2015, at the latest. He noted that the agency has received 400,000 comments on the proposed rule.

“The associuation submitted comments and is pleased to have received copies of comments filed by more than 12 states and more than 200 individual National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association company members,” it says.

“If you haven’t already done so, please share your comments with NSSGA so that we can track the number of comments on the rule filed by NSSGA members and state associations,” the association says.

Other rules on the EPA agenda include greenhouse gas emissions standards for existing power plants; the second phase of fuel economy and greenhouse gas emissions standards for medium and heavy-duty trucks – model year 2018 and beyond; the rule addressing the national ambient air quality standards for ozone; and the 2015 renewable fuel standards.
