    SAB Meets to Consider Whether to Review EPA’s Regulatory Agenda
    The EPA Science Advisory Board will hold two public teleconferences of the Chartered Science Advisory Board Panel to discuss information about EPA actions provided in the Spring 2013 Unified (Regulatory) Agenda. The public teleconferences will be held on Friday, October 25, 2013 from 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) and on Wednesday, October 30, 2013 from 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time).

    As part of the EPA’s effort to routinely inform the SAB about proposed and planned agency actions that have a scientific or technical basis, the agency provided notice to the SAB that the Office of Management and Budget published the ‘‘Unified (Regulatory) Agenda.’’ During the October 25, 2013 teleconference, the SAB will discuss whether it should provide advice and comment on the adequacy of the scientific and technical basis for EPA actions included in the Agenda. The October 30, 2013 teleconference will be held only if the chartered SAB has not completed its deliberations at the close of the October 25, 2013 discussion.

    Agendas and materials in support of these teleconferences will be placed on the EPA Web site at http://www.epa.gov/sab in advance of the teleconferences.
