Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Proposed rule.

SUMMARY:

On November 16, 1994, the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation submitted to EPA revisions to the Nashville-Davidson County Local Implementation Plan (LIP). These revisions consisted of the adoption of section 10.56.290 Measurement and Reporting of Emissions amendments in the Metropolitan/Nashville Code of Laws.

On May 3, 1995, the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation submitted to EPA revisions to the Tennessee State Implementation Plan (SIP). These revisions consisted of the adoption of Rule 1200-3-10-.04 Sampling, Recording and Reporting Required For Major Stationary Sources.

The adoptions of section 10.56.290 into the Nashville-Davidson County LIP and Rule 1200-3-10-.04 into the Tennessee SIP are being implemented to meet the requirements of credible evidence. These requirements were set forth in the May 23, 1994 SIP call letter. In the final rules section of this Federal Register, the EPA is approving the revision as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the EPA views this as a noncontroversial revision Start Printed Page 2921amendment 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 that direct final rule, no further activity is contemplated in relation to this proposed rule. If EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. The EPA will not institute a second comment period on this document. Any parties interested in commenting should do so at this time.

DATES:

To be considered, comments must be received by February 18, 2000.
