Public Hearing

Notice is hereby given that the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (Department), will hold legislative public hearings on the following proposed rules and revisions to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) for 6 NYCRR Subpart 201-3 and Subpart 227-2.

The changes proposed for 6 NYCRR Subpart 201-3 and Subpart 227-2 would reduce the emission limits for several types of stationary internal combustion engines. This proposed rule making marks a sustained series of actions undertaken by New York State (NYS), in concert with EPA and other states, to control emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), so that NYS may attain the National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for ozone. The NOx SIP will be revised to include the changes to 6 NYCRR Subpart 201-3 and Subpart 227-2.

The hearings will be held at the following locations and times:

Date: Tuesday, August 19, 2003
Time: 1 p.m.
Location: NYSDEC Annex, Region 2

Pursuant to Part 617 of the implementing regulations for the State Environmental Quality Review Act, the Department has prepared a Negative Declaration stating that the proposed action will not have a significant effect on the environment.

The Department invites all persons, organizations, corporations, and government agencies that may be affected by the proposed revisions to attend the hearings. At the hearings, persons who wish to make a statement will be invited to speak. There will be one hearing record for the entire proceeding which will include any comments received on any of the proposed actions addressed in this Notice. Persons wishing to speak on a particular topic will be invited to speak in the order deemed most appropriate by the ALJ, not necessarily in the order of the rules/SIP revision listed above. The Department may take different actions on each of the items listed above based upon comments. It is requested that oral statements also be submitted in writing. The Department will give equal weight to written and oral statements. Since a cumulative record will be compiled, it is not necessary for interested parties to attend the hearings on all days.
