SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice is simply an announcement of a finding that EPA has already made.

The bi-state Memphis, Tennessee 8-hour ozone nonattainment area is comprised of Shelby County in Tennessee and Crittenden County in Arkansas. Tennessee’s redesignation request and maintenance plan submittal addresses only MVEBs for the Tennessee portion of this Area (i.e., Shelby County). The MVEBs for the Arkansas portion of this Area are addressed in a separate submittal provided by the State of Arkansas. In a previous action, EPA found the MVEBs associated with Crittenden County (as a part of the bi-state Memphis 1997 8hour ozone area) adequate for transportation conformity purpose. More details on EPA’s finding for the Crittenden County MVEBs can be obtained at the EPA Web site: http:// www.epa.gov/otaq/stateresources/ transconf/pastsips.htm. EPA posted the availability of the Shelby County MVEBs on EPA’s Web site on March 12, 2009, as part of the adequacy process, for the purpose of soliciting comments. The adequacy comment period ran from March 12, 2009, through April 13, 2009. During EPA’s adequacy comment period, no adverse comments were received on the Shelby County MVEBs. Through this notice, EPA is informing the public that these MVEBs are adequate for transportation conformity.

These are not the last sodium dimethyldithiocarbamate products registered for use in the United States. In the July 1, 2009 Notice, EPA indicated that it would issue an order implementing the amendment to terminate uses, unless the Agency received substantive comments within the 30–day comment period that would merit its further review of these requests, or unless the registrant withdrew its request within this period.

Maintenance Plan 8-Hour Ozone Motor Vehicle Emission Budgets for 
Transportation Conformity Purposes

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice of adequacy.

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

SUMMARY: EPA is notifying the public that it has found that the motor 
vehicle emissions budgets (MVEBs) for Shelby County, Tennessee in the 
1997 8-Hour Ozone Maintenance Plan State Implementation Plan (SIP) 
revision, submitted on February 26, 2009, by the Tennessee Department 
of Environment and Conservation (TDEC), are adequate for transportation 
conformity purposes. Shelby County is one of the counties in the bi-
state Memphis Area for the 1997 8-hour ozone standard. Crittenden 
County, Arkansas is the other county in the bi-state Memphis Area. 
Through a separate action EPA has already found the Crittenden County 
budgets adequate for transportation conformity purposes. This action 
relates only to the Shelby County, Tennessee budgets. As a result of 
EPA's finding, Shelby County must use the MVEBs for future conformity

determinations for the 1997 8-hour ozone standard.

DATES: These MVEBs are effective November 27, 2009.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dianna Smith, U.S. Environmental 
Protection Agency, Region 4, Air Planning Branch, 61 Forsyth Street, 
SW., Atlanta, Georgia 30303. Ms. Smith can also be reached by telephone 
at (404) 562-9207, or via electronic mail at smith.dianna@epa.gov. The 
finding is available at EPA's conformity Web site: http://www.epa.gov/otaq/stateresources/transconf/currsips.htm.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice is simply an announcement of a 
finding that EPA has already made. EPA Region 4 sent a letter to TDEC 
on
    September 18, 2009, stating that the MVEBs identified for Shelby 
County in Tennessee's maintenance plan SIP revision for their portion 
of the bi-state Memphis Area, submitted on February 26, 2009, are 
adequate and must be used for transportation conformity determinations 
in Shelby County, Tennessee. The bi-state Memphis, Tennessee 8-hour 
ozone nonattainment area is comprised of Shelby County in Tennessee and 
Crittenden County in Arkansas. Tennessee's redesignation request and 
maintenance plan submittal addresses only MVEBs for the Tennessee 
portion of this Area (i.e., Shelby County). The MVEBs for the Arkansas 
portion of this Area are addressed in a separate submittal provided by 
the State of Arkansas. In a previous action, EPA found the MVEBs 
associated with Crittenden County (as a part of the bi-state Memphis 
1997 8-hour ozone area) adequate for transportation conformity purpose. 
More details on EPA's finding for the Crittenden County MVEBs can be 
obtained at the EPA Web site: http://www.epa.gov/otaq/stateresources/transconf/pastsips.htm.
    EPA posted the availability of the Shelby County MVEBs on EPA's Web 
site on March 12, 2009, as part of the adequacy process, for the 
purpose of soliciting comments. The adequacy comment period ran from 
March 12, 2009, through April 13, 2009. During EPA's adequacy comment 
period, no adverse comments were received on the Shelby County MVEBs. 
Through this notice, EPA is informing the public that these MVEBs are 
adequate for transportation conformity. This finding has also been 
announced on EPA's conformity Web site: http://www.epa.gov/otaq/stateresources/transconf/pastsips.htm. The adequate MVEBs are provided 
in the following table:

revision submittal for Shelby County. Even if EPA finds a budget 
adequate, the maintenance plan SIP revision submittal could later be
