The EPA updated its web page titled “Frequent Questions on the Final Amendments to the Risk Management Program (RMP) Rule” on Monday, June 12, 2017. According to the revised Q&A (page 9):
- When does the rule become effective?
- The effective date of this action has been delayed to February 19, 2019.
It has generally been reported that the EPA sent the rule to the White House Office of Management & Budget (“OMB”) for a pre-publication review of the final rule. Has the EPA tipped its hand?
