The purpose of the regulatory project (OGC No. 18-0030) was to revise Rule 62-210.700, Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.), Excess Emissions. The amendment, effective April 4, 2018, postponed the sunset date in subsection 62-210.700(6), F.A.C., relating to excess emissions, from May 22, 2018 to May 22, 2020. A Notice of Rule Development for Rule 62-210.700, F.A.C., was published on October 27, 2017, under OGC No. 17-0890. That rulemaking package was subsequently divided into two rulemaking packages to ensure that the revision to Rule 62-210.700, F.A.C., was completed before the May 22, 2018 sunset date. The other five rule sections from the Chapter 62-210 regulatory project, under OGC No. 17-0890, will be proposed in a separate Notice of Proposed Rule.
