Subject of Possible Rule Making: SWCAA 493 VOC Area Source Rules.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 70.94.141.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: This rule allows local implementation of federal regulations for consumer products and spray coatings, and contains provisions for variance fees. Southwest Clean Air Agency (SWCAA) is proposing to remove the variance fees from the main body of this rule, and incorporate them into a separate fee schedule approved via board resolution. This change will allow the agency to review/revise the registration fee by direct board action instead of formal rule making.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: SWCAA 493 is a local rule implemented only within SWCAA's jurisdiction. No coordination with other agencies is necessary.
Process for Developing New Rule: Proposed rule revisions are being developed through internal agency review.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Wess Safford, 11815 N.E. 99th Street, Suite 1294, Vancouver, WA 98682, phone (360) 574-3058 ext. 126, e-mail wess@swcleanair@org.
