On July 28, in a letter to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, the House Energy and Commerce Committee members Reps. Fred Upton (R-MI), the committee chairman, Ed Whitfield (R-KY), the Energy and Power Subcommittee chairman, and Cliff Stearns (R-FL), the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee chairman announced that the committee intends to hold hearings later this summer examining EPA’s ozone air quality standards reconsideration. This comes after EPA’s July 26 announcement that it would not issue a final version of the revised ozone national ambient air quality standards by July 29 as originally planned. EPA will issue the final rule after OMB completes a regulatory review that began July 11.
