EPA will hold four public hearings for the Clean Power Plan proposed rule the week of July 28, 2014. The hearings will provide interested parties the opportunity to present data, views or arguments concerning the proposed action.
To find out more about the new carbon pollution standards, the hearings, how to attend, and how to sign up to testify at the hearings, please visit: http://www2.epa.gov/carbon-pollution-standards/forms/public-hearings-clean-power-plan-proposed-rule. Registration is only required for individuals who wish to present oral testimony; registration is not required to attend and listen to testimony at the public hearings. For all hearings there will be a lunch break from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. and a dinner break from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Because these hearings are being held at U.S. government facilities, individuals must pass through security screening at the building entrance and show valid picture identification (e.g. driver's license or government-issued ID) to the security staff in order to gain access to the meeting room. Please note: the REAL ID Act, passed by Congress in 2005, established new requirements for entering Federal facilities. If your driver’s license is issued by Alaska, American Samoa, Arizona, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, New York, Oklahoma, or Washington State, you must present an additional form of identification to enter the Federal buildings where the public hearings will be held. Acceptable alternative forms of identification include: Federal employee badges, passports, enhanced driver’s licenses and military identification cards.
