EPA Proposes to Delay RMP Rule Effective Date to 2019

On Friday, March 31, 2017, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt announced a proposed rule to further delay the effective date of the Obama Administration’s Risk Management Program (RMP) final rule until February 19, 2019. This will give the agency time to reconsider the final RMP rule published on January 13, 2017.

Industry organizations have raised serious concerns about the final rule. The proposal to further delay the effective date of the amendments will allow the Agency time to evaluate these objections and consider other issues that may benefit from the additional public input.
