Department of Environmental Services
(DES) Hearing
November 14, 2008

Under the CSPA, the DES is expected to publish Administrative Rules to implement several provisions of the Act. The original Rules were promulgated on July 1, 2008. In September 2008, prodded by our Coalition and others, revisions to the Rules (Env-Wq-1400) were proposed. There was a public comment period on the revision, as well as a public hearing. On November 14th, 2008, our Coalition responded with detailed comments and proposed changes both in testimony and in writing. Our members provided the majority of the testimony. Following the comment period, the DES revised Env-Wq 1400 and submitted a final version of proposed Administrative Rules to The Joint Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules (JLCAR) on December 4th.
