Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; 
Texas; Revisions To Control Volatile Organic Compound Emissions From 
Consumer Related Sources

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: The EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the Texas State 
Implementation Plan (SIP) that amend Title 30 of the Texas 
Administrative Code (TAC), Chapter 115, Control of Air Pollution from 
Volatile Organic Compounds. The State submitted these revisions on 
March 4, 2010. These revisions remove the Texas Portable Fuel Container 
rule as an ozone control strategy from the Texas SIP for the Control of 
Ozone Air Pollution. In the submittal, Texas demonstrates that federal 
portable fuel container standards promulgated by EPA in 2007 are 
expected to provide equal to or greater emissions reductions than those 
resulting from the state regulations. The EPA is proposing to approve 
this SIP revision because it is expected that reliance on the more 
stringent federal portable fuel container standards will ensure that 
emission reductions equivalent to or greater than those in the repealed 
Texas portable fuel container regulations will continue to be achieved 
in the State of Texas. Accordingly, it is expected that this SIP 
revision will not have a negative impact neither on the emission 
reductions claimed in the Texas SIP, nor in Texas' attainment of the 
NAAQS for ozone. This SIP revision eliminates the redundancy that has 
been created with the adoption by EPA of the federal portable fuel 
container regulations in 2007. The EPA is proposing to approve these 
revisions pursuant to section 110 of the Federal Clean Air Act (CAA).

DATES: Written comments must be received on or before March 28, 2011.

ADDRESSES: Comments may be mailed to Mr. Guy Donaldson, Chief, Air 
Planning Section (6PD-L), Environmental Protection Agency, 1445 Ross 
Avenue, Suite 1200, Dallas, Texas 75202-2733. Comments may also be 
submitted electronically or through hand delivery/courier by following 
the detailed instructions in the Addresses section of the direct final 
rule located in the rules section of this Federal Register.

7263; e-mail address medina.dayana@epa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 relevant 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. Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on an amendment, 
paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may be severed 
from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those provisions 
of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment.
