R.I. Gen. Laws Chapter 23-23
R.I. Gen. Laws Chapter 42-35
Purpose and Reason :
The purpose of this regulation is to specify operating permit requirements for stationary sources. The Department of Environmental Management, Office of Air Resources is proposing to amend the regulation to allow more sources the opportunity to apply for an emissions cap in lieu of an operating permit. Portions of the regulation that no longer apply are proposed to be eliminated. Additionally, the regulation has been updated to current RI Code of Regulations (RICR) format which required the addition of an incorporated materials section.
Although R.I. Gen. Laws § 42-35-2.8, require that an oral hearing be granted if requested by twenty-five (25) persons, by an agency or by an association having at least twenty-five (25) members, an oral hearing will be granted if requested by one (1) or more persons during the public comment period.
