Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Proposed rule.


On January 17, 1997, and November 6, 1998, on behalf of the Forsyth County Environmental Affairs Department the North Carolina Division of Air Quality submitted miscellaneous revisions to the Forsyth County Local Implementation Plan (LIP). These revisions include but are not limited to the adoption of Exclusionary Rules and the amending of multiple Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) rules. Forsyth County is submitting these revisions to adopt federally approved regulations, previously adopted into the North Carolina State Implementation Plan, into the LIP. 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 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 If EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule.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.


To be considered, comments must be received by March 20, 2000.
