Review Announcement
Pursuant to Executive Order Number Twenty-five (1998), the Department of Environmental Quality will review its Public Participation Guidelines (9 VAC 15-10-10 et seq.). The purpose of the review is to determine whether the regulations should be terminated, amended or retained in their current form. The review of the regulations will be guided by the principles listed in Executive Order Number Twenty-five (1998).

The purpose of these regulations is to protect public health and/or welfare with the least possible costs and intrusiveness to the citizens and businesses of the Commonwealth and to establish procedures for soliciting citizen participation in all phases of the regulatory process for the adoption of new regulations or the amendment or repeal of existing regulations.

The department and the board are seeking public comment on the review of any issue relating to these regulations including whether (I) the regulations are effective in achieving their goals; (ii) the regulations are essential to protect the health, safety of welfare of citizens or for the economical performance of important governmental functions; (iii) there are less burdensome and less intrusive alternatives for achieving the purpose of the regulations; and (iv) the regulations are clearly written and easily understandable by the affected persons.

Comments on the above are welcome and will be accepted until January 21, 2001. Comments should be sent to Cindy M. Berndt, Department of Environmental Quality, Post Office Box 10009, 629 East Main Street, Richmond, Virginia 23240-0009, (804) 698-4378, FAX (804) 698-4327 or email cmberndt@deq.state.va.us.
