Livestock Emissions Reporting Delayed Until May 1
On Feb. 1, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit extended a stay of air emissions reporting from livestock wastes through at least May 1, 2018. The reporting deadline was scheduled for Jan. 22, when the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency asked for an additional 90-day extension.
EPA had asked for an additional stay to provide the agency with more time to prepare for any reporting obligations. In its motion for stay, EPA cited a need for more time to refine guidance to industry on meeting the reporting obligations and to finalize agriculture-specific forms that would be used to report emissions from animal wastes to EPA.
