National Advisory Council for Environmental Policy and Technology

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice of Federal Advisory Committee Meeting Postponed and 
Rescheduled as a Teleconference.


SUMMARY: Under the Federal Advisory Committee Act, Pub. L. 92463, EPA 
gives notice that the public meeting for the National Advisory Council 
for Environmental Policy and Technology (NACEPT) initially scheduled 
for March 7-8, 2013, was postponed due to the predicted inclement 
weather that closed the Federal Government. The NACEPT meeting has been 
rescheduled as a teleconference for April 4, 2013. NACEPT provides 
advice to the EPA Administrator on a broad range of environmental 
policy, technology, and management issues. NACEPT represents diverse 
interests from academia, industry, non-governmental organizations, and 
local, State, and tribal governments.
    Purpose of Meeting: NACEPT will discuss and approve draft 
recommendations in response to the National Academy of Sciences' report 
on ``Sustainability and the U.S. EPA.'' NACEPT's second letter on 
sustainability will address two topics: (1) what strengths EPA can 
leverage to successfully deploy sustainability practices across the 
Agency, and (2) what 3-5 year breakthrough objectives can help bring 
about sustainability implementation. The agenda and meeting materials 
will be available at http://www.epa.gov/ofacmo/nacept/cal-nacept.htm 
and http://www.regulations.gov under Docket ID: EPA-HQ-OA-2013-0122.

DATES: NACEPT will now hold a teleconference meeting on Thursday, April 
4, 2013, from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (EST). Due to budgetary 
uncertainties, EPA is announcing this teleconference with less than 15 
calendar days public notice.
