AIS Public Interest Waiver for Projects Funded Through the Texas Emergency Relief Program or Urgent Need Program

EPA did not approve this waiver request. 

Based on the Agency’s analysis of the waiver request, and in response to overwhelming opposition from public comments, Agency does not have information to support that any shortage of domestic products may affect the projects of concern. The Agency has observed, and public comments support, that domestic supply of the majority of iron and steel products are readily available for potentially affected SRF projects.
