National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants: Primary 
Lead Smelting

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Extension of public comment period.

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

SUMMARY: On February 17, 2011, EPA proposed amendments to the National 
Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Primary Lead 
Smelting (76 FR 9410). The EPA is extending the deadline for written 
comments on the proposed amendments by 19 days to May 8, 2011. The EPA 
received a request for this extension from the Doe Run Company, the 
sole covered facility. Doe Run Company requested the extension in order 
to analyze data and review the proposed amendments. EPA finds this 
request to be reasonable due to the significant changes the proposal 
would make to the current rule.

any defects or viruses.
