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

SUMMARY: EPA proposes to approve the State Implementation Plan (SIP)

amending the 8-hour ozone maintenance plan for the Parkersburg area. 
This revision amends the maintenance plans' 2009 and 2018 motor vehicle 
emissions budgets (MVEBs) by reallocating a portion of the plans' 
safety margins which results in an increase in the MVEBs. In the Final 
Rules section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving the State's 
SIP submittal as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the 
Agency views this as a noncontroversial submittal and anticipates no 
adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in 
the direct final rule. If no adverse comments are received in response 
to this 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adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all 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.
