ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 EPA is proposing to approve the Lead 2010 base year emissions inventory State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision submitted by the State of Tennessee, through the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) on April 11, 2013. The emissions inventory was submitted to meet the requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA or Act) for the Bristol 2008 Lead National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) nonattainment area (hereafter also referred to as the ‘‘Bristol Area’’ or ‘‘Area’’). Additionally, EPA is proposing to convert conditional approvals to full approvals for Tennessee’s 1997 annual fine particulate matter (PM2.5) NAAQS, 2006 24-hour PM2.5 NAAQS and 2008 ozone NAAQS infrastructure SIPs as they relate to adequate provisions prohibiting emissions that interfere with any other state’s required measures to prevent significant deterioration of its air quality. EPA conditionally approved these portions of Tennessee’s infrastructure submissions for these NAAQS on March 6, 2013, and March 26, 2013. Tennessee has since met the obligations associated with these conditional approvals, and therefore, EPA is proposing to convert these conditional approvals to full approvals.
