On October 25,  with a compliance deadline looming, EPA issued a 60-day administrative stay of the Chemical Manufacturing Area Sources rule.  Affected sources had faced an imminent October 29 deadline to comply with the 2009 final rule, but with EPA still in the process of finalizing its reconsidered CMAS rule, the Agency noted that a stay of the rule was “warranted.”  The stay ends on December 24, 2012.  The reconsidered rule remains at the Office of Management and Budget, where it was received from EPA in the middle of September.
