Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; Indiana
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approves into the Indiana State Implementation Plan (SIP) revisions to the Indiana Administrative Code. These regulatory updates change rule language concerning Indiana's permitting programs. Included in this submittal is a provision to assure that applicable requirements exist independently of title V permits. EPA is proposing to approve these rules because they are consistent with EPA's regulations governing State permit programs.
In a separate action in the “Rules and Regulations” section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving these revisions into the State Implementation Plan as a direct final rule without prior proposal because EPA views this as a noncontroversial amendment and anticipates no adverse comment. The EPA has explained reasons for this approval in the preamble to the direct final rule. If EPA receives no relevant adverse written comments, EPA will take no further action on this proposed rule. If EPA receives adverse written comment, we will publish a timely withdrawal of the direct final rule in the Federal Register and inform the public that the rule will not take effect. In that event, EPA will address all relevant public comments in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. In either event, EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this time.
