In the ‘‘Rules and Regulations’’ section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving the State’s SIP revision as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a controversial SIP revision and anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the preamble to the direct final rule. If EPA receives no adverse comments, EPA will not take further action on this proposed rule. If EPA receives adverse comments, EPA will withdraw the direct final rule and it will not take effect. EPA will address all public comments in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this time. Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those provisions of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment.

ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to take direct final action approving State Implementation Plan (SIP) revisions submitted by the State of Utah. On October 19, 2004, the Governor of Utah submitted revisions to Utah’s Rule R307–110–12, ‘‘Section IX, Control Measures for Area and Point Sources, Part C, Carbon Monoxide,’’ which incorporates a revised maintenance plan for the Salt Lake City carbon monoxide (CO) maintenance area for the CO National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS). The revised maintenance plan contains revised transportation conformity budgets for the years 2005 and 2019. In addition, the Governor submitted revisions to Utah’s Rule R307–110–33, ‘‘Section X, Vehicle Inspection and Maintenance Program, Part C, Salt Lake County,’’ which incorporates a revised vehicle inspection and maintenance program for Salt Lake County. EPA is proposing approval of the Salt Lake City CO revised maintenance plan, the revised transportation conformity budgets, the revised vehicle inspection and maintenance program for Salt Lake County, and the revisions to rules R307– 110–12 and R307–110–33. This action is being taken under section 110 of the Clean Air Act. In the ‘‘Rules and Regulations’’ section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving the State’s SIP revisions as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial SIP revision and anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the preamble to the direct final rule. If EPA receives no adverse comments, EPA will not take further action on this proposed rule. If EPA receives adverse comments, EPA will withdraw the direct final rule and it will not take effect. EPA will address all public comments in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule.

SIP to establish strategies, activities, and plans that constitute 
reasonable progress toward the National visibility goal. In the ``Rules 
and Regulations'' section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving 
the State's SIP revision as a direct final rule without prior proposal

is set forth in the preamble to the direct final rule. If EPA receives 
no adverse comments, EPA will not take further action on this proposed 
rule. If EPA receives adverse comments, EPA will withdraw the direct 
final rule and it will not take effect. EPA will address all public 
comments in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. EPA 
will not institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties 
interested in commenting must do so at this time. Please note that if 
EPA receives adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of 
this rule and if that provision may be severed from the remainder of
