|Subject||Toward Rule Improvement|
As stated previously, the rule language itself could improve by... 1) Recognizing that some chrome platers who do not use PFAS/PFOS, are not located near schools, are not located near sensitive receptors, have fully compliant HEPA systems and 1469 compliance, are located in CalEnviroScore areas with no population and therefore no CalEnviroScore, but perform vital work that supports the national commercial aviation and DOD infrastructure (e.g...us) should have a right to exist until a substitute technology can be identified. Don't ban us before the replacing technology is identified, ban us after the replacing technology is identified. For us, the substitute technology won't be trivalent plating. Take out the ban language associated with hard chrome platers - no one can raise capital with that in there. 2) Implementing AQMD 1469 statewide. That's it. No need for anything else. 3) Reducing the source test requirement to a frequency of five years. 4) Allowing currently permitted facilities to add/change permits so long as compliant to emissions regulations (i.e..1469). 5) Allowing decorative platers a way to comply rather than a hard ban. Thank you for your consideration.
