National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants; 
Delegation of Authority to Arkansas

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: The EPA is proposing to approve, through a ``direct final'' 
procedure, a request for delegation of the Federal air toxics program 
contained within 40 CFR Parts 63 pursuant to Section 112(l) of the 
Clean Air Act (Act). The State's mechanism of delegation involves the 
straight delegation of certain existing and future Section 112 
standards unchanged from the Federal standards. The actual delegation 
of authority of individual standards, except standards addressed 
specifically in this action, will occur through a mechanism set forth 
in a memorandum of agreement (MOA) between the Arkansas Department of 
Environmental Quality (ADEQ) and EPA. ADEQ is requesting delegation and 
approval to implement and enforce the existing Part 63 standards as 
they apply to Part 70 sources, including major and area sources subject 
to the Title V (Part 70) permitting requirements. The delegation of 
authority under this action does not include CAA Section 112(r).

DATES: Written comments on this proposed rule must be received on or 
before December 12, 2014.

ADDRESSES: Comments may be mailed to Mr. Rick Barrett, Air Permits 
Section (6PD-R), Environmental Protection Agency, 1445 Ross Avenue, 
Suite 1200, Dallas, Texas 75202-2733. Comments may also be submitted 
electronically or through hand delivery/courier by following the 
detailed instructions in the Addresses section of the direct final rule 
located in the rules section of this Federal Register.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Rick Barrett, (214) 665-7227, 
barrett.richard@epa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the final rules section of this Federal 
Register, EPA is approving ADEQ's request for delegation of authority 
to implement and enforce certain NESHAPs for all sources which are 
subject to part 70 as a direct rule without prior proposal because the 
Agency views this as noncontroversial action and anticipates no adverse 
comments. A detailed rationale for this proposed 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. 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withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a 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 rule. EPA will not 
institute a second comment period. Any parties interested in commenting 
on this action should do so at this time.
    For additional information, see the direct final rule which is 
located in the rules section of this Federal Register.
