DECLARATION OF EMERGENCY

Standard Fuel Specifications for Gasoline and Gasoline-Oxygenate Blends (LAC 7:XXXV.303)

In accordance with the emergency provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act, R.S. 49:953(B), and under the authority of R.S. 3:4608 and 4680, the Commissioner of Agriculture and Forestry declares an emergency to exist and adopts by emergency process the attached regulations for the suspension of rules governing the sale of gasoline with greater than 7.8 reid vapor pressure (RVP).

On August 27, 2008, Governor Bobby Jindal declared a state of emergency in Louisiana for purposes of preparing for Hurricane Gustav. The hurricane could potentially make landfall in Louisiana on or about September 2, 2008 and create emergency conditions that threaten the lives and property of the citizens of the state. The state of emergency extends from August 27, 2008 through September 26, 2008, unless terminated sooner.

The Department of Agriculture and Forestry has adopted rules and regulations adopting the ASTM international standards for gasoline reid vapor pressure (RVP). During this time of emergency, the department will follow any EPA waivers for the state of Louisiana allowing the distribution and sale of gasoline with a greater than 7.8 psi RVP throughout Louisiana. A temporary suspension of these rules and regulations during the emergency is necessary to provide for an adequate supply of gasoline. Failure to suspend these rules and regulations creates an imminent peril to the public health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of this state.

This Emergency Rule becomes effective upon the signature of the commissioner and shall remain in effect until the state of emergency declared by the governor on August 27, 2008 terminates or until EPA waivers terminate, whichever date occurs first.

This Emergency Rule becomes effective upon signature of the commissioner and shall expire at 11:59 p.m. on September 15, 2008.
