the Mid-term Evaluation of Greenhouse Gas Emissions Standards for Model 
Years 2022-2025 Light-Duty Vehicles

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Announcement of public hearing.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is announcing a 
public hearing to be held in Washington, DC on September 6, 2017 for 
the notice ``Request for Comment on Reconsideration of the Final 
Determination of the Mid-term Evaluation of Greenhouse Gas Emissions 
Standards for Model Years 2022-2025 Light-duty Vehicles; Request for 
Comment on Model Year 2021 Greenhouse Gas Emissions Standards'' 
announced August 10, 2017 and projected to be published on August 21, 
2017. In the document signed on August 10, 2017, EPA announced that it 
is reconsidering whether the light-duty vehicle greenhouse gas 
standards previously established for model years 2022-2025 are 
appropriate under section 202(a) of the Clean Air Act and invited 
stakeholders to submit any comments, data, and information they believe 
are relevant to the Administrator's reconsideration of the January 2017 
Mid-term Evaluation Final Determination and in particular, highlight 
any new information. EPA also requested comment on the separate 
question of whether the light-duty vehicle greenhouse gas standards 
established for model year 2021 remain appropriate, regardless of the 
agency's decision on the Mid-term Evaluation.

DATES: The public hearing will be held on September 6, 2017, at the 
location noted below under ADDRESSES. The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. 
and end when all parties present who wish to speak have had an 
opportunity to do so. Parties wishing to testify at the hearing should 
notify EPA by August 30, 2017, by sending an email to Hearing 
Registration_ASD@epa.gov or by contacting the contact person listed 
below under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. Additional information 
regarding the hearing appears below under SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:. 
Any updates made to any aspect of the hearing, including any change to 
the location of the hearing, will be posted online at https://www.epa.gov/regulations-emissions-vehicles-and-engines/midterm-evaluation-light-duty-vehicle-ghg-emissions. The EPA does not intend to 
publish a notice in the Federal Register announcing any such updates. 
Please go to https://www.epa.gov/regulations-emissions-vehicles-and-engines/midterm-evaluation-light-duty-vehicle-ghg-emissions for more

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Christopher Lieske, Office of 
Transportation and Air Quality (OTAQ), Assessment and Standards 
Division (ASD), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 2000 Traverwood 
Drive, Ann Arbor MI 48105; telephone number: (734) 214-4584; fax 
number: (734) 214-4816; email address: Hearing 
Registration_ASD@epa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The purpose of the public hearing is to 
provide the public an opportunity to present oral comments related to 
the notice ``Request for Comment on Reconsideration of the Final 
Determination of the Mid-term Evaluation of Greenhouse Gas Emissions 
Standards for Model Years 2022-2025 Light-duty Vehicles; Request for 
Comment on Model Year 2021 Greenhouse Gas Emissions Standards'' 
projected to be published on August 21, 2017. Once EPA learns how many 
people have registered to speak at the public hearing, we will allocate 
an appropriate amount of time to each participant, allowing time for 
necessary breaks. In addition, we will reserve a block of time for 
anyone else in the audience who wants to give testimony. For planning 
purposes, each speaker should anticipate speaking for no more than five 
minutes, although we may need to shorten that time if there is a large 
turnout. We request that you bring two copies of your statement or 
other material for the EPA panel.
    EPA will conduct the hearings informally, and technical rules of 
evidence will not apply. We will arrange for a written transcript of 
the hearing and keep the official record for the notice open until the 
close of the comment period to allow speakers to submit supplementary 
information. You may make arrangements for copies of the transcripts 
directly with the court reporter. Panel members may ask clarifying 
questions during the oral statements but will not respond to the 
statements at that time. Written statements and supporting information 
submitted during the comment period will be considered with the same 
weight as oral comments and supporting information presented at the 
public hearing. Written comments must be received by the last day of 
the comment period.

How can I get copies of this document and other related information?
