Message No. 2

June 9, 2000

This is the second message being sent out using the EPA's MSTRS Listserver. Its purpose is ensure that members of the Mobile Sources Technical Review Subcommittee and interested members of the public are kept up to date on the events and activities of the group.

This edition corrects some glitches and minor errors in the first message. Since the entire first message has been updated and is pasted in below, I suggest you reread it and disregard the original version. Sorry for any inconvenience. I am new to listservers but can see that the combination of the listserver for notification and the website for storage and delivery of documents and other information can go a long way toward reducing the paper burden associated with operating this subcommittee.

Current News:
The next MSTRS quarterly meeting will be held on Wednesday, July 12. The theme will be "Modeling." A number of presentations are planned. The draft agenda has been posted on the MSTRS website. As we agreed at the last meeting in April, time will be set aside for attendees to state their thoughts and express their opinions regarding EPA's onroad fuel regulations. Paper copies of the agenda and other information on the meeting will be sent out to everyone on the mailing list by June 12. The letter transmitting that information will be posted on the website at the same time.

Two workgroups are also making plans to meet in conjunction with the MSTRS meeting: Air Toxics is planning for 1-4 on Tuesday and OBD will meet on Thursday from 10-3. Agendas for these meetings may or may not be developed or published in advance. If interested, please contact the EPA reps: Jean Marie Revelt for Air Toxics ( and Ed Gardetto for OBD (

The meetings will be held at the Holiday Inn Select in Alexandria, VA. This facility is at 480 King Street in the center of Old Town, a quaint collection of shops, restaurants and other attractions on the Potomac River. If you have ever considered bringing a spouse or guests on the trip to one of these meetings, this location will be a good one.

If you are planning to stay overnight at the hotel for any of these meetings, please note that the cutoff date to ensure rooms at the government rate ($118) is Monday, June 19. Mention "EPA" as you make your reservations. Telephone numbers are (800) 368-5047 from outside Virginia and (703) 549-6080 from inside Virginia. "Invited" travelers should notify their EPA staff contact promptly to get the process started. Detailed information on the hotel is available on their website at

All meetings are open to the public and advance registration is not required.

I hope you will find this listserver useful to you in your work with the MSTRS. Please let me know if you have any comments, questions or suggestions.
