Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 88 / Tuesday, May 8, 2007 / Proposed Rules standards (VCS), EPA has no authority to disapprove a SIP submission for failure to use VCS. It would thus be inconsistent with applicable law for EPA, when it reviews a SIP submission, to use VCS in place of a SIP submission that otherwise satisfies the provisions of the Clean Air Act. Thus, the requirements of section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) do not apply. This proposed rule would not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).

ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: EPA is proposing a revision to the Missouri State Implementation Plan (SIP) for the purpose of approving the Missouri Department of Natural Resources’ (MDNR) actions to address requirements of section 110(a)(2)(D)(i) of the Clean Air Act. Section 110(a)(2)(D)(i) requires each state to submit a SIP that prohibits emissions that adversely affect another state’s air quality through interstate transport. MDNR has adequately addressed the four distinct elements related to the impact of interstate transport of air pollutants. These include prohibiting significant contribution to downwind nonattainment of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS), interference with maintenance of the NAAQS, interference with plans in another state to prevent significant deterioration of air quality, and interference with efforts of other states to protect visibility. The requirements for public notification were also met by MDNR. DATES: Comments on this proposed action must be received in writing by June 7, 2007.

Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; Missouri; 
Interstate Transport of Pollution

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: EPA is proposing a revision to the Missouri State 
Implementation Plan (SIP) for the purpose of approving the Missouri 
Department of Natural Resources' (MDNR) actions to address requirements 
of section 110(a)(2)(D)(i) of the Clean Air Act. Section 
110(a)(2)(D)(i) requires each state to submit a SIP that prohibits 
emissions that adversely affect another state's air quality through 
interstate transport. MDNR has adequately addressed the four distinct 
elements related to the impact of interstate transport of air 
pollutants. These include prohibiting significant contribution to 
downwind nonattainment of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards 
(NAAQS), interference with maintenance of the NAAQS, interference with 
plans in another state to prevent significant deterioration of air 
quality, and interference with efforts of other states to protect 
visibility. The requirements for public notification were also met by 
MDNR.

DATES: Comments on this proposed action must be received in writing by 
June 7, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the final rules section of the 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 revision amendment and anticipates no relevant adverse 
comments to this action. A detailed rationale for the approval is set 
forth in the direct final rule. If no relevant adverse comments are 
received in response to this action, no further activity is 
contemplated in relation to this action. If EPA receives relevant 
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 action. EPA will not institute a second comment 
period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting on this 
action should do so at this time. Please note that if EPA receives 
adverse comment on part of this rule and if that part can be severed 
from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those parts of 
the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment. For additional 
information, see the direct final rule that is located in the rules 
section of this Federal Register.
