ACTION: Proposed rule. SUMMARY: On February 26, 2009, the State of Tennessee, through the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC), Air Pollution Control Division, submitted a request to redesignate the Tennessee portion of the bi-State Memphis, Tennessee-Arkansas 8-hour ozone nonattainment area (the ‘‘bi-State Memphis Area’’) to attainment PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 59943 for the 1997 8-hour ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS); and to approve the State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision containing a maintenance plan for the Tennessee portion of the bi-State Memphis Area. The bi-State Memphis 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS nonattainment area is composed of Shelby County, Tennessee and Crittenden County, Arkansas. In this action, EPA is proposing to approve the February 26, 2009 redesignation request for Shelby County, Tennessee as part of the Memphis Area. Additionally, EPA is proposing to approve the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS maintenance plan for Shelby County, including the emissions inventory and the State motor vehicle emission budgets (MVEBs) for nitrogen oxides (NOX) and volatile organic compounds (VOC) for the years 2006, 2009, 2017, and 2021. This proposed approval of Tennessee’s redesignation request is based on EPA’s determination that Tennessee has demonstrated that Shelby County has met the criteria for redesignation to attainment specified in the Clean Air Act (CAA), including the determination that the entire bi-State Memphis ozone nonattainment area has attained the 1997 8-hour ozone standard. The State of Arkansas has submitted a similar redesignation request and maintenance plan for the Arkansas portion of this 8-hour ozone area. EPA is taking action on Arkansas’ redesignation request and maintenance plan through a separate rulemaking action. In this action, EPA is also describing the status and proposing approval of its transportation conformity adequacy determination for the new 2006, 2009, 2017 and 2021 MVEBs that are contained in the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS maintenance plan for Shelby County, Tennessee. MVEBs for Crittenden County, Arkansas are included in the Arkansas submittal, and will be addressed through EPA’s separate action for that submittal.
