the docket identified below. The public hearings will provide 
interested parties the opportunity to present oral comments regarding 
the EPA's proposed national emission standards for hazardous air 
pollutants, including data, views, or arguments concerning the 
proposal. The EPA may ask clarifying questions during the oral 
presentations, but will not respond to the presentations at that time.

testimony electronically (via e-mail or CD), or in hard copy form.
    The hearing schedules, including lists of speakers, will be posted 
on EPA's Web sites http://www.epa.gov/ttn/atw/pvc/pvcpg.html. Verbatim 
transcripts of the hearings and written statements will be included in 
the docket for the rulemaking.

possible on the day of the hearings; however, please plan for the 
hearing to run either ahead of schedule or behind schedule.
