Subject: Notice of Public Hearing * August 17, 2006

The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), Air Quality
Division, will conduct a public hearing on proposed administrative rules
promulgated pursuant to Part 55, Air Pollution Control, of the Natural
Resources and Environmental Protection Act, 1994 PA 451, as amended (Act
451); R 336.1660 and 1661.  These rules will limit the volatile organic
compound content in a variety of consumer products manufactured, sold, or
used in the state of Michigan.

The public hearing will be held on August 17, 2006, at 10:00 a.m. in the
Constitution Hall, Lillian Hatcher Conference Room, 3rd Floor North, 525
West Allegan Street, Lansing, Michigan.  This is the second public hearing
on this rules package.  The first public hearing held on July 10, 2006, did
not get noticed in an Upper Peninsula newspaper; therefore, a second public
hearing is being held.

Internet at:  http://www.michigan.gov/deqair or
