This option allows companies to request that the IEPA expedite the review of their permit application and was also included in the recent House Bill 1297. The expedited review timing is to be mutually agreed upon by the IEPA and the applicant. The expedited review fees are up to four times the standard fee (not to exceed $100,000). If the IEPA is not able to meet the mutually agreed upon timeline, a prorated refund will be made. The expedited permit reviews will be based on staff availability to work overtime, so there are no guarantees of certain expedited timeframes.
