National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants: 
Secondary Lead Smelting; Extension of Comment Period

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule; extension of public comment period.

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

SUMMARY: On May 19, 2011, the EPA proposed amendments to the National 
Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Secondary Lead 
Smelting (76 FR 29032). The EPA is extending the deadline for written 
comments on the proposed amendments by 21 days to July 26, 2011. The 
EPA received a request for an extension from the Association of Battery 
Recyclers (ABR). The ABR requested an extension in order to analyze 
data and review the proposed amendments. The EPA finds this request to 
be reasonable due to the significant changes the proposal would make to 
the current rule.

DATES: Comments on the proposed rule published May 19, 2011 (76 FR 
29032) must be received on or before July 26, 2011.
