A ruling by the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida granting the EPA's motion to modify the consent decree relieved the EPA of its obligation under the decree to finalize this rule. The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the district court's modification of consent decree. As a result, the EPA no longer intends to finalize this November 30, 2012 rule.


This site provides summaries of priority rulemakings and priority retrospective reviews of existing regulations. We update most of the site at the beginning of each month, though some data is updated more frequently if it is time sensitive. The information on this site is not intended to and does not commit EPA to specific conclusions or actions. For example, after further analysis, EPA may decide the effects of a rule would be different or it may decide to terminate a rulemaking.
