The Committee’s function is to assist directly in the development of special regulations for management of ORVs at Cape Hatteras National Seashore (Seashore). Executive Order 11644, as amended by Executive Order 11989, requires certain Federal agencies to publish regulations that provide for administrative designation of the specific areas and trails on which ORV use may be permitted. In response, the NPS published a general regulation at 36 CFR 4.10, which provides that each park that designates routes and areas for ORV use must do so by promulgating a special regulation specific to that park. It also provides that the designation of routes and areas shall comply with Executive Order 11644, and 36 CFR 1.5 regarding closures. Members of the Committee will negotiate to reach consensus on concepts and language to be used as the basis for a proposed special regulation, to be published by the NPS in the Federal Register, governing ORV use at the Seashore. The duties of the Committee are solely advisory. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with PROPOSALS SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:07 Oct 08, 2008 Jkt 217001 Dated: September 26, 2008.

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

SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the Louisiana State

On July 20, 2007 and August 24, 2007, the State of Louisiana submitted

Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) through the year 2014. These 
maintenance plans meet the statutory and regulatory requirements, and 
are consistent with EPA's guidance. EPA is approving the revisions 
pursuant to section 110 of the Federal Clean Air Act (CAA). On March 
12, 2008, EPA issued a revised ozone standard. Today's action, however, 
is being taken to address requirements under the 1997 ozone standard. 
Requirements for the areas under the 2008 standard will be addressed in 
future actions.

DATES: Written comments must be received on or before November 10,

action, 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comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public 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. Any 
parties interested in commenting on this action should do so at this 
time. Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on an amendment,
