In its interim report, Air Permitting Streamlining Techniques and Approaches for Greenhouse Gases, the Clean Air Act Advisory Committee proposed that the Environmental Protection Agency accept public comments on ways to streamline the greenhouse gas permitting process. The committee’s report did not offer any of its own recommendations for streamlining the process, explaining that the committee lacked the time and resources to carefully examine various streamlining methods, but instead suggested that the agency review data and information that the panel has collected, propose options for streamlining the permitting process, and solicit public comment. The full advisory committee will discuss the report at its September 20 meeting.
