SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document whenever ‘‘we,’’ ‘‘us,’’ or ‘‘our’’ is used, we mean the EPA. On June 27, 2005, EPA proposed to disapprove provisions relating to opacity limitations contained in an Ohio submittal dated June 4, 2003. EPA is evaluating the public comments received in response to the proposed disapproval. Given the passage of time, E:\FR\FM\08AUP1.SGM 08AUP1 46384 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 153 / Friday, August 8, 2014 / Proposed Rules on June 26, 2014 (79 FR 36277), EPA solicited supplemental comment specifically with respect to whether events subsequent to the prior comment period should alter EPA’s proposed disapproval of Ohio’s submission dated June 4, 2003, with respect to SIP opacity limitations. EPA did not solicit comments on Ohio’s submission or EPA’s proposed action of June 27, 2005, on that submission, except to the extent that events subsequent to the original comment period are relevant to EPA’s evaluation of the submission and EPA’s proposed action. This was not a reopening of the original comment period, but the opening of a supplemental comment period. In the supplemental proposal, we requested comment by July 28, 2014. We received a request from the Ohio EPA, on July 7, 2014, to extend the comment period an additional 90 days. We also received a similar request from the Ohio Utility Group on July 17, 2014. EPA has considered these requests and has decided to reopen the comment period for an additional 30 days. EPA considers a comment period extended by more than 30 days (including time between July 28, 2014 and today) to be more than sufficient to research and analyze any events subsequent to the original comment period which might be relevant to this supplemental comment period. Neither Ohio EPA nor the Ohio Utility Group identified any particularly time-consuming issues relevant to the supplemental comment period, nor is EPA aware of any. The comment period now closes on September 8, 2014. Dated: July 29, 2014. Susan Hedman, Regional Administrator, Region 5.

    On June 27, 2005, EPA proposed to disapprove provisions relating to

EPA is evaluating the public comments received in response to the

[[Page 46384]]

on June 26, 2014 (79 FR 36277), EPA solicited supplemental comment 
specifically with respect to whether events subsequent to the prior 
comment period should alter EPA's proposed disapproval of Ohio's 
submission dated June 4, 2003, with respect to SIP opacity limitations. 
EPA did not solicit comments on Ohio's submission or EPA's proposed 
action of June 27, 2005, on that submission, except to the extent that 
events subsequent to the original comment period are relevant to EPA's 
evaluation of the submission and EPA's proposed action. This was not a 
reopening of the original comment period, but the opening of a 
supplemental comment period. In the supplemental proposal, we requested 
comment by July 28, 2014. We received a request from the Ohio EPA, on 
July 7, 2014, to extend the comment period an additional 90 days. We 
also received a similar request from the Ohio Utility Group on July 17, 
2014. EPA has considered these requests and has decided to reopen the 
comment period for an additional 30 days. EPA considers a comment 
period extended by more than 30 days (including time between July 28, 
2014 and today) to be more than sufficient to research and analyze any 
events subsequent to the original comment period which might be 
relevant to this supplemental comment period. Neither Ohio EPA nor the 
Ohio Utility Group identified any particularly time-consuming issues 
relevant to the supplemental comment period, nor is EPA aware of any. 
The comment period now closes on September 8, 2014.
