Partner Leah Ziemba was quoted in Feedstuffs’ article, “EPA Asks for 90-day Extension for Emissions Reporting” on January 22, 2018.
“Leah Ziemba, partner at Michael Best, said EPA filed a motion for a stay in part to finalize its reporting forms for the initial reporting requirements in the first 30 days of the mandate being implemented. She explained that EPA has sent for final review to the Office of Management & Budget the more streamlined form for producers to submit if they determined that they would reach the emissions threshold.
Ziemba added that although environmental groups that challenged the law did not support an extension, they did not oppose it, meaning it is likely that the court will grant the extension.
She said she doesn't believe EPA is close to finalizing its updated emission estimation methodologies. In addition, there is work to do to find a legislative solution to the reporting requirements.”
