ACTION: Proposed rule. SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the Tennessee State Implementation Plan (SIP) submitted by the State of Tennessee through the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation on July 13, 2009. This revision incorporates provisions related to the implementation of EPA’s Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR), promulgated on May 12, 2005, subsequently revised on April 28, 2006, and December 13, 2006, and the CAIR Federal Implementation Plan (FIP) concerning Sulfur Dioxide (SO2), Nitrogen Oxides (NOX) annual, and NOX ozone season emissions for the State of Tennessee, promulgated on April 28, 2006, and subsequently revised December 13, 2006. Although the District of Columbia Circuit Court found CAIR to be flawed, the rule was remanded without vacatur and thus remains in place. EPA is continuing to approve CAIR provisions into SIPs as appropriate. EPA previously approved an ‘‘abbreviated SIP’’ for Tennessee, primarily consisting of rules governing allocation of allowances to electric generating units (EGUs) for use in the trading programs established pursuant to CAIR and providing for voluntary opt-in to these programs on August 20, 2007 (72 FR 46388), effective on October 19, 2007. Tennessee has now requested, in a revised submittal dated September 21, 2009, and a clarification letter dated September 24, 2009, that EPA act on a portion of the July 13, 2009, submittal as an abbreviated SIP.
