[ Filed April 21, 2010, 11:45 a.m. , effective May 22, 2010 ]


Effective Date of Rule: Thirty-one days after filing.

Purpose: Rule 1.4 was changed to expand the definition of "Owner" to include all potential parties. Definitions that were not used within the regulations were deleted. Rule 2.2 was moved to Rule 1.10. The reference to Rule 2.2 in Rule 6.1.2 was removed. Rule 7.7 was deleted as it was less stringent than current state rule and was deemed no longer necessary. Rule 8.1 was changed to be consistent with current state law.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing Rules 7.7, 2.2; and amending Rules 1.4, 1.10, 6.1.2, 8.1.

Adopted under notice filed as WSR 10-04-087 on February 2, 2010.

Changes Other than Editing from Proposed to Adopted Version: The definition of volatile organic compounds (VOC) was amended to exempt dimethyl carbonate and propylene carbonate as VOCs.

The intent of the rule was not modified.
