public hearing was published in the Federal Register on November 25, 
2011, and is available at: http://www.epa.gov/ttn/atw/rrisk/rtrpg.html 
and also in the docket identified below. The public hearing will 
provide interested parties the opportunity to present oral comments 
regarding the EPA's proposed standards, 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. 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

minutes for each commenter. The EPA encourages commenters to bring a 
copy of their oral testimony along with any other information 
supporting their statements in electronic (via email or CD) or in hard 
copy form. A recorder will be present during the public hearing to 
record oral statements. All information submitted to the EPA during the 
public hearing and a transcribed copy of the oral statements will be 
entered into the docket.
    The public hearing schedule, including lists of speakers, will be 
posted on the EPA's Web site at http://www.epa.gov/ttn/atw/rrisk/rtrpg.html. Verbatim transcripts 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.
