Rulemaking Documents Required by Idaho Administrative Procedure Act
DEQ initiated this rulemaking to update and clarify certain air quality permitting sections. The proposed revisions include minor rule clarifications for sources seeking air quality permits or exemptions from permitting. The revisions also include resolving inconsistencies in rule language, removing outdated references, adding provisions for renewing operating permits, and correcting typographical errors.
The text of the rule will be drafted by DEQ in conjunction with a negotiating committee made up of persons having an interest in the development of this rule. Members of the regulated community who may be subject to Idaho's air quality rules, special interest groups, public officials, and members of the public who have an interest in the regulation of air emissions from sources in Idaho may be interested in participating in this rulemaking.
Upon conclusion of negotiations, DEQ intends to publish a proposed rule for public comment in the summer of 2018 and then present the final proposal to the Idaho Board of Environmental Quality (Board) in the fall of 2018 for adoption of a pending rule. If adopted by the Board, the rule will be reviewed by the 2019 Idaho Legislature.
