ACTION: Proposed rule; amendments. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The EPA is proposing amendments to the national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) for cellulose products manufacturing, which were issued on June 11, 2002, under section 112 of the Clean Air Act (CAA). This action proposes to improve implementation of the emission standards by revising the work practice standards, general and initial compliance requirements, definitions, and General Provisions applicability, as well as correcting typographical, formatting, and crossreferencing errors in the final rule. In the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal Register, we are issuing the amendments as a direct final rule, without prior proposal, because we view the revisions as noncontroversial and anticipate no adverse comments. We have explained our reasons for the revisions in the preamble to the direct final rule. If we receive any adverse comment on one or more distinct amendments in the direct final rule, we will publish a timely notice of withdrawal in the Federal Register informing the public which provisions will become effective and which provisions are being withdrawn due to adverse comment. We will address all public comments in a subsequent final rule. We will not institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this time. If no adverse comments are received, no further action will be taken on the proposal, and the direct final rule will become effective as provided in that action. The regulatory text for the proposal is identical to that for the direct final rule published in the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal Register. For further supplementary information, see the direct final rule. DATES: Comments.

National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants: 
Cellulose Products Manufacturing

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule; amendments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The EPA is proposing amendments to the national emission 
standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) for cellulose products 
manufacturing, which were issued on June 11, 2002, under section 112 of 
the Clean Air Act (CAA). This action proposes to improve implementation 
of the emission standards by revising the work practice standards, 
general and initial compliance requirements, definitions, and General 
Provisions applicability, as well as correcting typographical, 
formatting, and cross-referencing errors in the final rule.
    In the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal Register, we 
are issuing the amendments as a direct final rule, without prior 
proposal, because we view the revisions as noncontroversial and 
anticipate no adverse comments. We have explained our reasons for the 
revisions in the preamble to the direct final rule.
    If we receive any adverse comment on one or more distinct 
amendments in the direct final rule, we will publish a timely notice of 
withdrawal in the Federal Register informing the public which 
provisions will become effective and which provisions are being 
withdrawn due to adverse comment. We will address all public comments 
in a subsequent final rule. We will not institute a second comment 
period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting must do so 
at this time. If no adverse comments are received, no further action 
will be taken on the proposal, and the direct final rule will become 
effective as provided in that action.
    The regulatory text for the proposal is identical to that for the 
direct final rule published in the Rules and Regulations section of 
this Federal Register. For further supplementary information, see the 
direct final rule.

DATES: Comments. Written comments must be received on the companion

reviews for this action, please see the direct final rule action that 
is located in the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal 
Register.

Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA)

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) generally requires an agency 
to prepare a regulatory flexibility analysis of any rule subject to 
notice and comment rulemaking requirements under the Administrative 
Procedure Act or any other statute unless the Agency certifies that the 
rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial 
number of small entities. Small entities include small businesses, 
small organizations, and small governmental jurisdictions.
    For purposes of assessing the impacts of today's proposed rule on 
small entities, small entity is defined as: (1) A small business that 
has fewer than 1,000 employees for NAICS codes 325221, 325188, and 
325199; fewer than 750 employees for NAICS code 325211; or fewer than 
500 employees for NAICS codes 326121 and 326199; (2) a small 
governmental jurisdiction that is a government of a city, county, town, 
school district or special district with a population of less than 
50,000; and (3) a small organization that is any not-for-profit 
enterprise which is independently owned and operated and is not 
dominant in its field.
    After considering the economic impacts of today's proposed rule on 
small entities, I certify that this action will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small

[[Page 46703]]

entities. The proposed amendments will not impose any new requirements 
on small entities. This action proposes to improve implementation of 
the emission standards, by revising the work practice standards, 
general and initial compliance requirements, definitions, and General 
Provisions applicability, as well as correcting typographical, 
formatting, and cross-referencing errors in the final rule. We continue 
to be interested in the potential impacts of the proposed rule on small 
entities and welcome comments on issues related to such impacts.
