Acceptance of Rulemaking Petition for Study

[37 Pa.B. 477]
[Saturday, January 27, 2007]

   On January 17, 2007, the Environmental Quality Board (EQB) accepted a rulemaking petition for study under 25 Pa. Code Chapter 23 (relating to Environmental Quality Board policy for processing petitions--statement of policy). The petition, submitted by the Clean Air Board of Central Pennsylvania, Inc., requests the EQB establish regulations to restrict the idling of commercial diesel-powered vehicles. The petitioner has recommended new regulatory language be added to 25 Pa. Code §§ 121.1 and 126.601--126.605.

   Under the EQB's acceptance of the petition, the Department of Environmental Protection (Department) will prepare a report evaluating the petition. The report will include a recommendation on whether the EQB should approve the action requested in the petition. If the Department's recommendation is to change a regulation, the report will specify the anticipated date that the EQB will consider a proposed rulemaking. The report must be completed within 60 days from the date the petition was accepted by the EQB. If the report cannot be completed within the 60-day time period, at the next EQB meeting the Department will state how much additional time is necessary to complete the report.

   The petition is available to the public for review by contacting the Environmental Quality Board, P. O. Box 8477, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8477, (717) 787-4526 and isaccessible on the Department's web site at www.depweb. (DEP Keywords: ''EQB,'' then select ''2007 Meeting Agendas/Handouts/Minutes,'' then select ''January 17, 2007, meeting'').
