The Department has some information on the potential additional burden of the revised PSD regulations on regulated facilities and has addressed this in the draft Fiscal Impact Statement (FIS). The Department has also included in the draft FIS an assessment of fiscal impacts to the state and local governments based on information from EPA and the Department’s preliminary analysis.
Along with public input on the draft JIS, the Department will accept any written suggestions or comments on the draft FIS and on the draft proposed rulemaking (brief for Environmental Protection Commission (EPC) and Notice of Intended Action) until 4:30 PM on Friday, June 17, 2011.*
These draft documents are available on the Public Input page of the Department’s Air Quality Bureau website. Please provide any written comments or suggestions no later than 4:30 PM on Friday, June 17, 2011,* to Christine Paulson by email to Christine.Paulson@dnr.iowa.gov, by fax to 515-242-5094, or by mail to Iowa DNR Air Quality Bureau, 7900 Hickman Road, Suite 1, Windsor Heights, Iowa 50324.
