Request ID: 58
Request From: Steve Toth
Date Requested: Dec 22, 2003
Request: I received the following message last Friday. It contains another request for information regarding methyl bromide to support the Critical Use Exemption requests that the U.S. has submitted on behalf of the Southeastern Consortium and others. This request is coming from the Montreal Protocol's Methyl Bromide Technical Options Committee. Please review the attached document and send me your comments. I will summarize the responses and submit them on behalf of the Southern Region. I realize that many of you are not working this week (e.g., December 22-26 are holidays for NC State); however, the deadline for responding is January 9 so I did not want to wait until after Christmas to send this request to you. Thanks you for your continuing assistance.
