On Monday, May 12, the EPA published its Spring 2009 regulatory agenda, available at http://www.epa.gov/fedrgstr/EPA-GENERAL/2009/May/Day-11/g10279.pdf. The agenda details the agency's priorities for the next six months, including two new actions on the Clean Air Act, and its plans for updated the Safe Drinking Water Act.
Under the Clean Air Act, the agency has two new proposed rules it plans to be focusing on: the HAP standards for boilers and process heaters; and the renewable fuels standard. The agency also plans to wrap up the loose ends of its Interstate Ozone program.
In the pre-rule stage under the Safe Drinking Water Act is a proposal for revisions to the underground injection control requirements of Class V wells (comment period concludes at the end of July). A second, an update to the national primary drinking water regulations for radon (first proposed in 1999 but since shoved under the table), will also be addressed.
