Proposed Air & Radiation Regulations

Proposed Actions provide the full text of proposed regulations and amendments, an estimate of the economic impact of an action on the regulated parties, the agency, other State or local agencies, and the general public. Proposed Actions also detail how the public may provide comments to an agency about a proposed regulation.

All Notices of Proposed Action (NPA) are published in the Maryland Register. Click here for the most current Notice of Public Hearings and Materials. While the Department strives to keep this content up-to-date, this list may not contain all proposed actions as this list is only updated periodically.
