Next Step: Cleaner Air Oregon Rules Advisory Committee,
The Cleaner Air Oregon Rules Advisory
Committee will meet on May 8-9 in Portland to continue developing draft rules
to reform how Oregon regulates air toxics. The committee's role is to provide
advice to state regulators and health experts on policy decisions to create air
toxics rules that are based on health risks.
The Oregon Department of Environmental
Quality and the Oregon Health Authority will convene the meeting to discuss
updates the rulemaking team made to the 2017 draft rules and the fiscal impact
statement. The updates are based on a new legislative mandate, public comment
from 2017 and technical improvements. The committee will also review and
provide input to DEQ and OHA on the fiscal impact of the rules, the fiscal
impact on small business, and ways to mitigate the impacts.
Tuesday, May 8, 2018 - 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Wednesday, May 9, 2018 - 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
DoubleTree Hotel, Multnomah Room
1000 NE Multnomah Street
Portland, OR 97232
The meeting is open to the public, but
discussion will be between committee members. The public will have
opportunities to comment on the draft rules at both meetings.
