Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; 
Rhode Island: Prevention of Significant Deterioration; Greenhouse Gas 
Permitting Authority and Tailoring Rule

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to fully approve certain revisions to the 
Rhode Island State Implementation Plan (SIP) primarily relating to 
regulation of Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) under Rhode Island's Prevention 
of Significant Deterioration (PSD) preconstruction permitting program. 
EPA is also proposing to fully approve the State's definition of 
``PM2.5'' (fine particulate matter) which is specific only 
to permitting. Certain of the State's SIP revisions consist of 
definitions that also relate more broadly to the State's PSD and 
nonattainment new source review (NSR) preconstruction permitting 
requirements, i.e., to major stationary sources that also emit 
regulated new source review pollutants other than GHGs. EPA is 
proposing to conditionally approve those definitions as they relate to 
the non-GHG pollutants. All of the revisions in question were submitted 
by Rhode Island, through the Rhode Island Department of Environmental 
Management (RI DEM) Office of Air Resources, on January 18, 2011. They 
are primarily intended to align Rhode Island's SIP regulations with 
EPA's ``Prevention of Significant Deterioration and Title V Greenhouse 
Gas Tailoring Rule.'' Finally, EPA is not taking action on certain 
other SIP revisions contained in RI DEM's January 18, 2011 submittal.

DATES: Written comments must be received on or before November 25, 
2013.
