On January 23, 2014, the Illinois Pollution Control Board (Board) declined to adopt the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed coke and coal bulk terminals rule, also referred to as the petroleum coke or “petcoke” rule, for emergency rulemaking.  The Board found that no emergency exists that requires adopting the rule under the emergency rulemaking process.  Instead, the Board decided to proceed with the proposal as a general rulemaking, in compliance with the general notice and hearing requirements.
