When Will We See the Final Boiler MACT and CISWI Rules from U.S. EPA?

Rumor has it that we could see the final 4 Rules (i.e., the Major and Area Source Boiler MACT, CISWI*, and NHSM* rules) by the end of June.  U.S. EPA sent final versions of the rules to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in mid-May for review, which can normally take 90 days.  But as Chuck mentioned in his blog post earlier this month, the review for these rules could take even longer given their high visibility – or maybe that will result in an expedited review?  So – when do you think we’ll see the final rules?  Take our poll below and we’ll publish the results in an upcoming blog post (or vote to see them immediately).

* Not familiar with those acronyms?  No problem:

CISWI = Commercial and Industrial Solid Waste Incineration
NHSM = Non-hazardous Secondary Materials
