The undersigned organizations and individuals request that the Department of Environmental Conservation (“DEC”) extend the public comment period for the above-referenced rulemaking for an additional one hundred eighty (180) days. In light of the complexity and novelty of this issue, we believe this request is reasonable and would provide the public and experts with additional time to consider the numerous dimensions of this proposal, thereby helping inform DEC in carrying out its responsibilities under the law.
