Assessment of Visibility Impairment at the Grand Canyon National 
Park: Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking; Extension of Public 
Comment Period

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Advance notice of proposed rulemaking; extension of public 
comment period.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is extending the 
comment period for an advance notice of proposed rulemaking, published 
June 17, 1999 (64 FR 32458), regarding visibility impairment at the 
Grand Canyon National Park (GCNP) and the possibility that the Mohave 
Generating Station (MGS) in Laughlin, Nevada may contribute to that 
impairment. In the June 17 notice, EPA requests information that it 
should consider in determining whether visibility problems at the GCNP 
can be reasonably attributed to MGS, and if so, what, if any, pollution 
control requirements should be applied.
    The public comment period for the advance notice of proposed 
rulemaking was originally due to expire on August 16, 1999. On August 
6, 1999 (64 FR 42891), September 14, 1999 (64 FR 49756), and October 1, 
1999 (64 FR 53303), EPA published notices extending the public comment 
period on the advance notice of proposed rulemaking. Today, EPA is 
extending the public comment period for an additional 25 days.

DATES: The comment period on the advance notice of proposed rulemaking 
is extended until November 15, 1999.

ADDRESSES: Comments should be submitted (in duplicate, if possible) to: 
EPA Region IX, 75 Hawthorne Street (AIR2), San Francisco, CA 94105, 
Attn: Regina Spindler.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Regina Spindler (415) 744-1251, 
Planning Office (AIR2), Air Division, EPA Region IX, 75 Hawthorne 
Street, San Francisco, CA 94105.

    Dated: October 25, 1999.
