EPA Withdraws RQ Adjustment NPRM

Yesterday the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) announced that the EPA had withdrawn its notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) regarding possible modifications to reportable quantities. The NPRM was submitted earlier this month.

No reason was given for the rulemaking’s withdrawal. Having said that, this is not the typical Trump Administration removal of an Obama Administration rulemaking, so I suspect that we may see this rulemaking resubmitted sometime in the future.

BTW: There is an interesting EPA web page on the topic of RQ modifications that dates back to only September 28th, 2016.
