SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document, ‘‘we,’’ ‘‘us’’ and ‘‘our’’ refer to EPA. This proposal addresses a number of statutes and rules that EPA has determined were previously approved in error into the Arizona and Nevada state implementation plans (SIPs). EPA is proposing to delete these statutes and rules from the respective SIPs under section 110(k)(6) of the Clean Air Act, which provides EPA authority to remove these statutes and rules without additional State submission. In the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal Register, we are deleting these statutes and rules in a direct final action without prior proposal because we believe the deletion of them is not controversial. Please see the direct final action for a list of the specific statutes and rules that are the subject of this action. If we receive adverse comments, however, we will publish a timely withdrawal of the direct final rule and address the comments in a subsequent action based on this proposed rule. Please note that if we receive adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the rule, we may adopt as final those provisions of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment.
