This proposal addresses revisions to the Nevada State Implementation Plan (SIP) that were submitted by the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) on January 3, 2014 and June 5, 2014. The revisions include the following amended rules that relate to the State of Nevada’s minor source NSR program: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: TABLE 1—NSR RULES SUBMITTED BY NDEP Submitted rule Title NAC 445B.22097 ................................ NAC 445B.308 .................................... Standards of quality for ambient air ...................................................... Prerequisites and conditions for issuance of certain operating permits; compliance with applicable state implementation plan. Environmental evaluation: Contents; consideration of good engineering practice stack height. NAC 445B.311 .................................... In the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal Register, we are approving the amended NSR rules listed above as revisions to the Nevada SIP in a direct final action without prior proposal because we believe the SIP revisions are not controversial. If we receive adverse comments, however, we will publish a timely withdrawal of the direct final rule and address the comments in subsequent action based on this proposed rule. Please note that if we receive adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the rule, we may adopt as final those provisions of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment. We do not plan to open a second comment period, so anyone interested in commenting should do so at this time. If we do not receive adverse comments, no further activity is planned.
