On October 31, 2012, EPA announced that it will review three regulatory actions pursuant to section 610 of the RFA. The three actions are: Heavy-Duty Engine and Vehicle Standards and Highway Diesel Fuel Sulfur Control Requirements; NESHAP: Reinforced Plastic Composites Production; and NPDES Permit Regulation and Effluent Limitations Guidelines Standards for Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs).

Comment submission deadline is December 31, 2012.
