This revision concerns Clean Air Act (CAA) requirements for volatile organic compounds and oxides of nitrogen emissions inventories in areas designated nonattainment for the 1997 8-hour ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS). We are proposing to approve the 2002 volatile organic compound and oxides of nitrogen emissions inventories as submitted by Imperial County and California.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: This proposal concerns the volatile organic compound (VOC) and oxides of nitrogen (NOX) 2002 emissions inventories submitted by California on December 21, 2010 in the document ‘‘Final 2009 1997 8-hour Ozone Modified Air Quality Management Plan’’ for Imperial County. California submitted these emissions inventories to meet CAA requirements under the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS. In the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal Register, we are approving these VOC and NOX emissions inventories provided by California in a direct final action without prior proposal because we believe these 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 a portion of the state’s submittal and if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the submittal, we may adopt as final those provisions of the submittal 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.

ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to partially approve and partially disapprove several State Implementation Plan (SIP) revisions submitted by the State of California pursuant to the requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA or the Act) for the implementation, maintenance, and enforcement of national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for ozone, fine particulate patter (PM2.5), lead (Pb), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and sulfur dioxide (SO2). We refer to such SIP revisions as ‘‘infrastructure’’ SIPs because they are intended to address basic structural SIP requirements for new or revised NAAQS including, but not limited to, legal authority, regulatory structure, resources, permit programs, and monitoring necessary to assure attainment and maintenance of the standards. In addition, we are proposing to reclassify certain regions of the state for emergency episode planning purposes with respect to ozone, NO2, SO2, and particulate matter (PM). Finally, we are proposing to approve into the SIP several state provisions addressing CAA conflict of interest requirements into the California SIP and an emergency episode planning rule for Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control District (APCD) for PM.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This proposal concerns the volatile organic 
compound (VOC) and oxides of nitrogen (NOX) 2002 emissions 
inventories submitted by California on December 21, 2010 in the 
document ``Final 2009 1997 8-hour Ozone Modified Air Quality Management 
Plan'' for Imperial County. California submitted these emissions 
inventories to meet CAA requirements under the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS. 
In the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal Register, we are 
approving these VOC and NOX emissions inventories provided 
by California in a direct final action without prior proposal because 
we believe these 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 a portion of the state's submittal and if that provision may be 
severed from the remainder of the submittal, we may adopt as final

    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. For further
