On April 27, 2018, the commission approved proposal of a SIP Revision to Remove Anti-tampering and EAC LIRAP (Non-Rule Project No. 2018-006-SIP-NR). The proposed SIP revision would remove Chapter 114, Subchapter B, and Section 114.86 from the SIP. Neither set of rules is a Federal Clean Air Act SIP requirement, and neither was adopted into the SIP with associated emissions reductions. Along with the SIP revision, the requested action would withdraw from consideration four adopted amendments to the anti-tampering rules that are still pending action by the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
A public hearing on the proposed SIP revision will be held on May 31, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. at the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality Headquarters in Building E, Room 201S, located at 12100 Park 35 Circle, Austin TX. The public comment period will open on May 1, 2018 and close on June 4, 2018.
