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. Written statements and 
supporting information submitted during the comment period will be 
considered with the same weight as any oral comments and supporting 
information presented at the public hearing.
    Commenters should notify Ms. Garrett if they will need specific 
equipment or if there are other special needs related to providing 
comments at the public hearing. The EPA will provide equipment for 
commenters to make computerized slide presentations if we receive 
special requests in advance. Oral testimony will be limited to 5 
minutes for each commenter. The EPA encourages commenters to submit to 
the docket a copy of their oral testimony electronically (via email or 
CD) or in hard copy form.
    The public hearing schedule, including a list of speakers, will be 
posted on the EPA's Web site at: http://www.epa.gov/ttn/atw/pcem/pcempg.html. A verbatim transcript of the hearing and written 
statements will be included in the docket for the rulemaking. The EPA 
will make every effort to follow the schedule as closely as possible on 
the day of the hearing; however, please plan for the hearing to run 
either ahead of schedule or behind schedule.
