Acceptance of Rulemaking Petition for Study
[43 Pa.B. 7095]
[Saturday, December 7, 2013]
On November 19, 2013, the Environmental Quality Board (Board) accepted a rulemaking petition for study under 25 Pa. Code Chapter 23 (relating to Environmental Quality Board policy for processing petitions—statement of policy).
The petition, submitted by Kenneth T. Kristl, Esq. on behalf of Ashley Funk and Kids vs. Global Warming, requests the Board promulgate a rulemaking to limit and regulate fossil fuel carbon dioxide emissions and to establish an effective emissions reduction strategy that will achieve safe atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide by 2100.
Under the Board's acceptance of the petition, the Department of Environmental Protection (Department) will prepare a report evaluating the petition. This report, which must be completed within 60 days from the date the petition was accepted by the Board, will include a recommendation on whether the Board should approve the action requested in the petition. If the recommendation is to change a regulation, the report will also specify the anticipated date that the Board will consider a proposed rulemaking.
The previously-referenced petition is available to the public for review by contacting the Environmental Quality Board, P. O. Box 8477, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8477, (717) 787-4526, and is accessible on the Department's web site at http://www.portal.state.pa.us/portal/server.pt/community/Environmental_Quality_Board/21511/EQB_Meeting_Schedule_2013/1615627 (see November 19, 2013, meeting).
