The comment period is closed. Read the proposed rule
Even as an individual, you can substantially change a regulation by writing a helpful comment on a proposed rule.

Read and write with ease

  • Read proposed changes in context

    See the proposed changes highlighted in comparison to the current regulation at a glance.

  • Write responses to individual sections

    Respond to sections of the rule, then submit all your responses together as one neatly-organized comment.

  • Help agencies sort & analyze your comment

    When you submit your comment, the agency will see which sections you responded to. This helps the agency sort and analyze your comments.

If you prefer, you can use a different way to read and comment on EPA proposed rules:

Build a good comment:

  • Explain why you agree or disagree; suggest alternatives and substitute language for your requested changes.
  • Provide specific examples to illustrate your concerns.
  • Base your comments on sound reasoning, scientific evidence, and/or how you will be impacted by the proposal.
  • Address trade-offs and opposing views.
  • Identify your relevant credentials and experience.
  • You don't have to comment on everything - you can select those issues that concern and affect you the most and/or you understand the best.
