The purpose of an RIA (Regulatory Impact Analysis) is to extensively analyze the costs and benefits of alternative regulatory strategies to the proposed rule. Of particular concern is that proper attention is given to small entities and opportunities to reduce economic impacts are fully examined. If, however, a rule is considered to be non-major, an analysis which documents the non-major nature of the rule, with regard to the three criteria above, is sufficient. The purpose of the economic impact analysis is to demonstrate that the proposed regulatory requirements constitute a non-major rule. In that the MCL (Maximum Contaminant Levels) decision for sulfate could be significantly assisted by an in depth analysis of the alternatives, presentation of the estimated sulfate impacts is a second purpose of the report.
