Comment Period

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule; extension of comment period.


SUMMARY: On June 30, 2016, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 
proposed a rule titled, ``Clean Energy Incentive Program Design 
Details.'' The EPA is extending the comment period on the proposed 
rule, which was scheduled to close on September 2, 2016, by 60 days 
until November 1, 2016. The EPA is making this change to allow for 
requested tribal consultation in response to the proposed rule.

DATES: The public comment period for the proposed rule published in the 
Federal Register on June 30, 2016 (81 FR 42940), and extended at 81 FR 
47325 (July 21, 2016) is being further extended. Written comments must 
be received on or before November 1, 2016.

ADDRESSES: The EPA has established a docket for the proposed rulemaking 
(available at http://www.regulations.gov). The Docket ID No. is EPA-HQ-
OAR-2016-0033. Information on this action is posted at  https://www.epa.gov/cleanpowerplan/clean-energy-incentive-program. Submit your 
comments, identified by the appropriate Docket ID No., to the Federal 
eRulemaking Portal: http://www.regulations.gov. Follow the online

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A number of tribes working on comments for 
the Clean Energy Incentive Program (CEIP) Design Details proposed rule 
(81 FR 42940; June 30, 2016) have asked for additional consultation to 
better understand the issues related to the interaction between state 
plans and projects on tribal land that may qualify for the CEIP. 
Because of the interest of a number of tribes, the EPA believes it is 
appropriate to extend the comment period to allow for the requested 
tribal consultations and to provide tribes time to incorporate any 
information from those consultations in their comments. The EPA 
extended the initial comment period at 81 FR 47325 (July 21, 2016). The 
EPA is further extending the comment period for the CEIP Design Details 
proposal by 60 days, to November 1, 2016.

    Dated: August 25, 2016.
Stephen Page,
Director, Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards.
