AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is approving portions of a State Implementation Plan (SIP) submission, provided by the Commonwealth of Kentucky, Energy and Environment Cabinet, Department for Environmental Protection, through the Kentucky Division for Air Quality (KDAQ), on January 9, 2019, to demonstrate that the Commonwealth meets the infrastructure requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA or Act) for the 2015 8-hour ozone national ambient air quality standard (NAAQS). Whenever EPA promulgates a new or revised NAAQS, the CAA requires that each state adopt and submit a SIP for the implementation, maintenance, and enforcement of each such NAAQS. KDAQ certified that the Kentucky SIP contains provisions that ensure the 2015 8-hour ozone NAAQS is implemented, enforced, and maintained in Kentucky.

for auxiliary aids and services needed by all students with 
disabilities in order to access or participate in required pre-
employment transition services under section 113(b) of the 
Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended; and (2) announce a change in 
policy with respect to additional VR services needed by eligible

funds may be used to pay for those additional VR services.
    The comment period closed on March 30, 2020. Because the novel
