    The Environmental Protection Agency delayed until Aug. 31, 2011, the deadline to give affected facilities additional time to submit certain data for 2010 greenhouse gas emissions. The agency needed additional time to determine if the reports should be made public information once it is submitted. This action affects only data used to calculate emissions. Facilities still will have to report total emissions by the original deadline, and that data will be released to the public. The agency concurrently sought comments and information to determine which data should remain confidential. The rulemakings address the GHG reporting rule issued in October 2009, which applies to sources that emit more than 25,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent greenhouse gases.
