outdated compliance dates. Due to these revisions, several within-rule 
references will be amended. Revisions to the Missouri rule ``Emissions 
Banking and Trading'' will remove all definitions, as they are now 
included in the general definitions rule. The reference to the state's 
Ambient Air Quality Standards rule that is included in the definition 
of National Ambient Air Quality Standards will also be removed. The 
revisions to Missouri's rules do not have an adverse affect on air 
quality. EPA's approval of this SIP revision is being done in 
accordance with the requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA).

DATES: Comments on this proposed action must be received in writing by 
December 23, 2013.

adverse comments to this action. 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 in relation to this action. If EPA receives relevant 
adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all 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 action. EPA will not institute a second comment 
period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting on this 
action should do so at this time. Please note that if EPA receives

the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment. For additional
