R.I. Gen. Laws § 42-17.1-2(19)
R.I. Gen. Laws Chapter 23-23
R.I. Gen. Laws Chapter 42-35
Purpose and Reason :
The federal transportation conformity rule sets forth policy, criteria and procedures for demonstrating and assuring conformity of transportation activities. Part 49 formally incorporates procedures to be followed in RI to complete this process. The Department of Environmental Management (DEM), Office of Air Resources, is proposing to amend air pollution control regulation, 250-RICR-120-05-49 “Transportation Conformity” (Part 49). 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.
