The amended Rule R307–110–20 incorporates by reference Section XII, ‘‘Transportation Conformity Consultation,’’ of the SIP. The April 17, 2008 revision makes minor changes to UAC sections R307–101–2, ‘‘Definitions;’’ R307–115–1, ‘‘Determining Conformity;’’ R307–170– 7, ‘‘Performance Specification Audits;’’ and R307–310–2, ‘‘Definitions;’’ and adds R307–101–3, ‘‘Version of CFR Incorporated by Reference.’’ In the ‘‘Rules and Regulations’’ section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving the State’s SIP revisions as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views these as noncontroversial SIP revisions 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 severed from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those provisions of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment.
