States certain notice requirements for environmental rulemaking in terms of state restrictions or requirements: (1) that are more stringent than federal restrictions or requirements; or (2) that apply in a subject area where federal law does not impose restrictions or requirements. Allows for the establishment of environmental performance based programs and authorizes the adoption of rules to implement the programs.

Establishes a special procedure for the water pollution control board to adopt rules to establish new water quality standards for certain communities served by combined sewers. Extends the expiration date of noncode sections that state the required level of protection of certain waters of the state and that direct the water pollution control board to amend certain water quality rules and to make certain water use category determinations.
