Yesterday, EPA sent the reconsidered Chemical Manufacturing Area Sources (CMAS) to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).  After reviewing the rule, OMB will return it to EPA for final signature. 

With the exception of a TItle V provision in the original final rule, which was stayed through the end of the reconsideration process, the compliance deadline for the original 2009 final rule remains October 29, 2012. 

While the CMAS rule was originally finalized in October 2012, the Society of Chemical Manufacturers and Affiliates (SOCMA) and the American Chemistry Council (ACC) filed a Petitition for Reconsideration in February 2010.  EPA accepted that Petition in the summer of 2010.
