Hi Rebecca,  Here is the info. on the Citizens' Training that I mentioned
last week, to be held  this coming  weekend in Dearborn.  As you will note,
the registration deadline has passed, but if you know of anyone that might
be interested they can give Genvieve D'Amico (312) 353-4761a call.  I think
there is still room, so I don't think it will be a problem.  Laura

I will be sending this list out to the people who have expressed interest
in this to me.  Please forward this to any and all interested parties that
you know about.  Here is the same information if you can't open word

                      Clean Air Act Operating Permits
                         How Can You Get Involved?
Title V of the Clean Air Act requires operating permits for existing major
stationary sources of air pollution.  The Title V permit unites state and
federal pollution control requirements into one comprehensive document to
form a terrific compliance tool.  Title V provides unique opportunities for
public involvement.  Learning how the process works can be one of the most
effective means the public can have to protect local air quality, your
health and your neighborhood.

  Workshop on Citizen Participation in the Title V Air Permitting Process
   Presenters include Keri Powell, New York Public Interest Group, Alex
                           Sagedy, Sierra Club,
