Air Quality Rulemaking Calendar

 October 16, 2012

Air Quality "Rulemaking Calendar"

The Maricopa County Air Quality Department (department) is proposing to revise Rule

100 (General Provisions And Definitions), in order to amend a sentence in Section 108

(Hearing Board). In order to have an approved State Implementation Plan (SIP), the

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires that each state (and local

agency) have the ability to fully operate an air quality program. In reviewing the

department’s capability, the EPA found that the department met all the capability

standards except for a minor change needed to the Conflict of Interest provision for the

department’s Air Quality Hearing Board. The proposed revision to Rule 100, Section

108 is intended to resolve this issue.

The proposed rule change is included in a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPR),

which is now available from the 2012 MCAQD Rulemaking Events Calendar on the

department's website.

The NPR will be published in the Arizona Administrative Register on Friday, October

19, 2012, initiating a 30-day public comment period. The NPR also includes further

details on how to provide comments on the proposed change to Rule 100.
