ACTION: Proposed rule. ycherry on PROD1PC61 with PROPOSALS AGENCY: SUMMARY: On September 19, 2006, the State of Georgia’s Department of Natural Resources, through the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (GA EPD), submitted a final State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision to remove the transportation control measure (TCM) related to a compressed natural gas refueling station/park and ride transportation center project in Douglas County, Georgia. This TCM was originally submitted by GA EPD for inclusion into the Atlanta portion of the Georgia SIP on August 29, 1997. EPA approved this TCM into the Georgia SIP through direct final rulemaking published in the Federal Register on June 24, 1998 (effective on August 10, 1998). Subsequently, the project sponsor determined that the equipment necessary to implement this project is no longer available, and thus, this TCM cannot be implemented as originally anticipated. No SIP credit was claimed for this program, nor were emission benefits ever realized for this TCM because it was never implemented. Through this rulemaking, EPA is proposing to approve the removal of this TCM from the Atlanta portion of the Georgia SIP because this SIP revision meets Clean Air Act requirements. In the Final Rules 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 noncontroversial submittal and anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final rule. If no significant, material, and adverse comments are received in response to this rule, no further activity is contemplated. If EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. EPA will not institute a second comment period on this document. Any parties interested in commenting on this document should do so at this time.

ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Pursuant to section 110 of the Clean Air Act (CAA), 42 U.S.C. 7410, EPA is proposing to approve a revision to the Florida State Implementation Plan (SIP) submitted by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) on June 8, 2005. The revision is source-specific to the Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company (LM), located in Pinellas County, Florida, and regards that facility’s compliance with Florida’s Surface Coating of Miscellaneous Metal Parts and Products Reasonably Available Control Technology rule, found at Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.) Rule 62–296.513 (FL MMPP Rule). The source-specific SIP revision seeks to allow LM to employ as reasonably available control technology (RACT) the control techniques outlined in EPA’s December 1997, ‘‘Aerospace Control Technique Guidelines’’ (EPA’s Aerospace CTG), instead of the RACT described in the FL MMPP Rule. The source-specific SIP revision is approvable because it meets the standards for approval described in section 110(l) of the CAA. In the Rules Section of this Federal Register, the EPA is taking direct final action to approve the Florida SIP revision without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial submittal and anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final action. If no significant, material, and adverse comments are received in response to the direct final action, no further activity is contemplated. If EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final action will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final action based on this proposed action. The EPA will not institute a second comment period on this document. Any parties interested in commenting on this document should do so at this time.

Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; Georgia: 
Removal of Douglas County Transportation Control Measure

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: On September 19, 2006, the State of Georgia's Department of 
Natural Resources, through the Georgia Environmental Protection 
Division (GA EPD), submitted a final State Implementation Plan (SIP) 
revision to remove the transportation control measure (TCM) related to 
a compressed natural gas refueling station/park and ride transportation 
center project in Douglas County, Georgia. This TCM was originally 
submitted by GA EPD for inclusion into the Atlanta portion of the 
Georgia SIP on August 29, 1997. EPA approved this TCM into the Georgia 
SIP through direct final rulemaking published in the Federal Register 
on June 24, 1998 (effective on August 10, 1998). Subsequently, the 
project sponsor determined that the equipment necessary to implement 
this project is no longer available, and thus, this TCM cannot be 
implemented as originally anticipated. No SIP credit was claimed for 
this program, nor were emission benefits ever realized for this TCM 
because it was never implemented. Through this rulemaking, EPA is 
proposing to approve the removal of this TCM from the Atlanta portion 
of the Georgia SIP because this SIP revision meets Clean Air Act 
requirements. In the Final Rules 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 noncontroversial 
submittal and anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed rationale for 
the approval is set forth in the direct final rule. If no significant, 
material, and adverse comments are received in response to this rule, 
no further activity is contemplated. If EPA receives adverse comments, 
the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments 
received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this 
proposed rule. EPA will not institute a second comment period on this 
document. Any parties interested in commenting on this document should 
do so at this time.

DATES: Written comments must be received on or before December 28, 
2006.
