SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Comment Period

    The Office of the Federal Register inadvertently published the 
November 30, 2012, proposed ``Reconsideration of Certain New Source and 
Startup/Shutdown Issues: National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air 
Pollutants from Coal- and Oil-fired Electric Utility Steam Generating 
Units and Standards of Performance for Fossil-Fuel-Fired Electric 
Utility, Industrial-Commercial-Institutional, and Small Industrial-
Commercial-Institutional Steam Generating Units'' in the ``Rules and 
Regulations'' section of the Federal Register, rather than in the 
``Proposed Rules'' section. The Office of Federal

[[Page 73969]]

Register issued a correction document on December 5, 2012 (77 FR 
72294). The EPA has decided to extend the public comment period by an 
additional 7 days in light of the clerical error. Therefore, the public 
comment period will end on January 7, 2013, rather than on December 31, 
2012.

How can I get copies of this document and other related information?

    The EPA has established the official public dockets No. EPA-HQ-OAR-
2011-0044 (NSPS action) and No. EPA-HQ-OAR-2009-0234 (NESHAP action). 
The EPA has also developed Web sites for this proposed rulemaking at 
the addresses given above.
