DES MOINES—The public will have an extra day to comment on proposed air quality rule changes as the public hearing and comment deadline move to Jan. 22, 2019.

The public can make verbal or written comments at the public hearing rescheduled to 1 p.m., Jan. 22, in the DNR’s fourth floor conference room, 502 E. Ninth St in Des Moines. Visitors should check in at fourth floor reception desk.

Known as Regulatory Certainty Part 3, the state rule changes will incorporate revisions to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s air toxic standards. Another change requires Title V facilities to use electronic emissions reporting starting with reports due March 31, 2019. This change should simplify industries’ reporting requirements.
