EPA has received an extension of two weeks to the court-ordered deadline for proposing standards for Industrial, Commercial and Institutional Boilers located at area and major sources of hazardous air pollutants (HAPS) and Commercial and Industrial Solid Waste Incinerators (CISWI).  The new deadline for the proposals is April 29, 2010 (it was to have been April 15, 2010).  EPA plans to issue a definition of non-hazardous waste under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), which will have an impact on the boiler and CISWI rules.  While there is no court-mandated schedule for the RCRA definition, the agency plans to issue that proposal along with the boiler and CISWI proposals.

The deadline for the final rules has not been extended and remains on December 16, 2010.
