The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has released the following information:

During the notice period, MPCA staff will hold a series of one-hour virtual public information sessions using Microsoft Teams Live Events to share the conclusions of our analysis of the proposed rule and review how you can participate in the rulemaking process. MPCA staff cannot take rulemaking comments during these information sessions; however, the presentation will cover how you can formally submit a comment into the record.

Links to join the Teams Live Events are available below. You do not need a Microsoft account to join.

Participate by computer, tablet, or smart phone: You can view and listen to a Clean Cars Minnesota information session by clicking on the Teams Live Event link from your computer, tablet, or smart phone. To ask a question for MPCA staff, you will be able to type your questions into a Q&A chat feature. You will not be able to share your audio to ask a question out loud.

Listen by phone: There is also an option to dial in to the Teams Live Event using the phone number provided, but this provides limited access to the meeting content. You will have access to listen to the information session, but you will not be able to see the visuals presented or submit your own questions during the Q&A with MPCA staff.

Please visit the MPCA public engagement page for helpful tips on how you can participate in this phase of the rulemaking process.
