The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (Ohio EPA) submitted its request on December 9, 2010, and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) submitted its request on January 25, 2011. Kentucky’s request to redesignate its portion of the Cincinnati-Hamilton area, submitted to EPA to on January 27, 2011, will be addressed in a separate rulemaking action. EPA’s proposal here involves several additional related actions. EPA has previously determined that the entire Cincinnati-Hamilton (OH-IN-KY) area has attained the 1997 annual PM2.5 standard. EPA is proposing to approve, as revisions to the Ohio and Indiana State Implementation Plans (SIPs), the States’ plans for maintaining the 1997 annual PM2.5 NAAQS through 2021 in the area. EPA is proposing to approve the 2005 emissions inventories for the Ohio and Indiana portions of the Cincinnati-Hamilton area as meeting the comprehensive emissions inventory requirement of the Clean Air Act (CAA). Finally, EPA finds adequate and is proposing to approve Ohio and Indiana’s Nitrogen Oxides (NOX) and PM2.5 Motor Vehicle Emission Budgets (MVEBs) for 2015 and 2021 for the Cincinnati-Hamilton area.

contemplated. If EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final rule
