ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve revised rules submitted by the State of Illinois as State Implementation Plan (SIP) revisions. The submitted rules update Illinois’ ambient air quality standards to include the 2012 primary National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for fine particulate matter (PM2.5), add EPA-promulgated monitoring methods, and address the ‘‘sunset provisions’’ in our regulation, finding that the 1971 NAAQS for sulfur dioxide no longer applies to the Lemont and Pekin areas in Illinois. In addition, the revised rules contain the timing requirements for the ‘‘flagging of exceptional events’’ and the submitting of documentation supporting the determination of exceptional events for the 2012 primary annual averaged PM2.5 standard. DATES: Comments must be received on or before July 11, 2016. ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID No. EPA–R05– OAR–2015–0009 or EPA–R05–OAR– 2015–0314 at http:// www.regulations.gov or via email to Aburano.Douglas@epa.gov.

For either manner of submission, EPA may publish any comment received to its public docket.

Multimedia SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 submissions (audio, video, etc.) must be accompanied by a written comment. The written comment is considered the official comment and should include discussion of all points you wish to make. EPA will generally not consider comments or comment contents located outside of the primary submission (i.e. on the web, cloud, or other file sharing system). For additional submission methods, please contact the person identified in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section.

In the Final Rules section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving the State’s SIP submittals as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views these as noncontroversial submittals and anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final rule. If no adverse comments are received in response to this rule, no further activity is contemplated. If EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule.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. Please note that, if EPA receives adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those provisions of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment. For additional information, see the direct final rule which is located in the Rules section of this Federal Register. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: May 10, 2016. Robert A.
