Title V Task Force Recommendations
The Clean Air Act Advisory Committee (CAAAC) formed the Title V Task Force (May 2004) to take public input on what is working/not working in the Title V operating permit program. The task force has compiled testimony/written comments from environmental advocates, industry, and state/local permitting agencies.
The Task Force released a final report (April 2006) with almost 100 recommendations intended to improve Title V implementation (see below).
EPA responded to the task force report at the September 14, 2006 meeting of the CAAAC.
