SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top

This document concerns the delegation of unchanged NESHAP to the Gila River Indian Community Department of Environmental Quality (GRIC) in Arizona. In the Rules section of this Federal Register, EPA is granting GRIC the authority to implement and enforce specified NESHAP. The direct final rule also explains the procedure for future delegation of NESHAP to GRIC. EPA is taking direct final action without prior proposal because the Agency believes this action is not controversial. If we receive adverse comments, however, we will publish a timely withdrawal of the direct final rule and address the comments in a subsequent action based on this proposed rule. Please note that if we receive adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the rule, we may adopt as final those provisions of the rule 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. For further information, please see the direct final action.

Dated: June 22, 2012.

Elizabeth Adams,

Acting Director, Air Division, Region IX.
