Nevada Administrative Code: NAC 445B.3711 to 445B.3791

R040-10: Repeal of Nevada Clean Air Mercury Rule Program (CAMR):The Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) is proposing to repeal the Nevada Clean Air Mercury Rule Program by removing NAC 445B.3711 to 445B.3791, inclusive, and all references to the program throughout Chapter 445B of the Nevada Administrative Code (NAC). This program was established in 2006 in response to a federal requirement for states to control mercury emissions from coal-fired electric generating units at power plants. In February 2008, the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia struck down the federal Clean Air Mercury Rule (CAMR) in "State of New Jersey, et al v USEPA, et al". Thus, the federal requirement for the Nevada CAMR program no longer exists

Repeal of this regulation will not have an immediate or long-term adverse economic impact on the public or the business community. There is no additional cost to the agency for repealing this regulation as the regulation does not overlap, duplicate or conflict with any regulations of other government agencies. (SEC Reference P2010-02)
