Exploratory rulemaking is a different approach to updating a rule. Instead of updating the rule all at once, we're making changes through multiple rulemaking actions:
- Update the list of toxic air pollutants based on recent health information.
- Look at other updates to the rule:
- Use stakeholders' feedback to consider other possible changes.
- Prioritize the changes.
- Start other potential rulemaking(s).
