Clean Air Act Advisory Committee: Notice Soliciting Interest in Participating on a Task Force on the Performance of the Title V Operating Permits Program
Under the Federal Advisory Committee Act, 5 U.S.C. Appendix 2 (Pub. L. 92-463), EPA announces the formation of a work group to be known as the Title V Task Force. This task force will seek input from the public including industry, State, and local air pollution control agencies, and environmental interest groups, on the performance of the title V operating permits programs. The ultimate goal of the title V task force will be to draft a report for consideration of the Permitting/Toxics Subcommittee to the Clean Air Act Advisory Committee (CAAAC) to document how the title V program is performing and what elements are working well and/or poorly. The draft report may include suggestions on how to improve the program. Through this notice, EPA solicits individuals to participate as members of the task force. We are looking for 12 to 24 individuals willing to attend at least three all-day meetings throughout the United States, participate in a number of conference calls, and participate in drafting the report to the subcommittee. In addition, we are announcing three all-day public meetings of the task force. The first meeting will be held in late June in the Washington, DC, area. The second meeting will probably be held in mid- September in the Chicago area. The third meeting will likely be held in late January 2005 in a western location such as Phoenix, Arizona.
