Accordingly, the IRS and the Treasury Department propose to adopt a rule that, in order for earnings to be excluded from income, any distribution from a section 529 account during a calendar year must be used to pay QHEEs during the same calendar year or by March 31 of the following year. The IRS and the Treasury Department welcome comments on rules necessary to ensure that distributions from section 529 accounts are appropriately matched to the payment of QHEEs. C. Recordkeeping Requirements and Administrative Procedures The forthcoming notice of proposed rulemaking may contain recordkeeping requirements designed to facilitate the implementation of these new rules, including the proposed anti-abuse rule. QTPs may be required to collect and retain, and in some cases report to the IRS, certain information. Programs may also need to revise their program documents, administrative procedures, and promotional and required literature for AOs and DBs. The forthcoming notice of proposed rulemaking will provide a grace period of no less than 15 months to implement most changes. The IRS and the Treasury Department welcome comments regarding the information that would be necessary to implement the proposed anti-abuse rule, including a discussion of how to minimize the burden on QTPs of collecting or reporting such information. Request for Comments Before the notice of proposed rulemaking is issued, consideration will be given to any written comments that are submitted timely (a signed original and eight (8) copies) to the IRS.

County Ozone Maintenance Plan'') to EPA for approval as a revision to 
the

Washoe County portion of the Nevada State Implementation Plan (SIP). 
The Washoe County Ozone Maintenance Plan was developed by the Washoe 
County District Health Department, Air Quality Management Division 
(Washoe County AQMD) and adopted by the Washoe County District Board of 
Health (District Board of Health) on April 26, 2007. Washoe County AQMD 
prepared the plan to provide for continued attainment of the 8-hour 
ozone national ambient air quality standard (NAAQS) through 2014 and to 
thereby satisfy the requirements of section 110(a)(1) of the Clean Air 
Act (CAA or ``Act'') and EPA's phase 1 rule implementing the 8-hour

Maintenance Plan as a revision to the Washoe County portion of the 
Nevada SIP because we find that the submitted ozone maintenance plan 
meets all of the applicable requirements of CAA section 110(a)(1) and 
our phase 1 rule implementing the 8-hour ozone NAAQS.
    In the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal Register, we

final action without prior proposal because we believe these SIP 
revisions are not controversial. If we receive adverse comments, 
however, we will publish a timely withdrawal of the direct final rule
