ACTION: Proposed rule. rmajette on DSK29S0YB1PROD with PROPOSALS AGENCY: SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve State Implementation Plan (SIP) revisions submitted by the State of Utah on March 22 and September 17, 2007. The revisions address Interstate Transport Pollution requirements of section 110(a)(2)(D)(i) of the Clean Air Act and a typographical error in Rule R307–130–4, ‘‘Options.’’ The March 22, 2007 submittal adds ‘‘Section XXIII, Interstate Transport’’ to the Utah SIP, and Rule R307–110–36 to the Utah Administrative Code (UAC). The new Rule R307–110–36 incorporates by reference the Interstate Transport declaration into the State rules. The September 17, 2007 submittal amends UAC Rule R307–130–4, ‘‘Options,’’ by removing from the text the word ‘‘not’’ which had been accidentally placed in this rule. 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 revision 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. 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 11:16 Mar 09, 2011 Jkt 223001 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Domenico Mastrangelo, Air Program, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region 8, Mailcode 8P–AR, 1595 Wynkoop, Denver, Colorado 80202– 1129, (303) 312–6436, mastrangelo.domenico@epa.gov.
