DEQ proposes temporary rule amendments to remove certain parts of Oregon’s greenhouse gas permitting requirements temporarily while DEQ determines how to recommend EQC take into consideration a recent change to federal greenhouse gas permitting rules. On June 23, 2014, the U.S. Supreme Court invalidated portions of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s greenhouse gas regulations known as the Tailoring Rule.
EQC approval of the temporary rule amendments would prevent some facilities from spending thousands of dollars to comply with Oregon’s current requirements until EQC considers permanent rules in 2015.
Visit DEQ's website to view the staff report and proposed rules. DEQ will take the proposal to EQC for decision at the commission's November 5-7, 2014 meeting.
