Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Proposed rule.


EPA is proposing to approve a revision to the Commonwealth of Kentucky's State Implementation Plan (SIP) submitted through the Kentucky Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Cabinet (KNREPC) on April 29, 1998. This revision adds a new Start Printed Page 12959regulation 401 KAR 50:032, “Prohibitory rule for hot mix asphalt plants,” to establish an enforceable production limit for asphalt plants in Kentucky to limit their potential to emit.

In the final rules section of this Federal Register, the EPA is approving Kentucky's SIP revision as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial revision amendment 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 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 If EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule.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 on this document should do so at this time.


To be considered, comments must be received by April 10, 2000.


All comments should be addressed to Joey LeVasseur at the EPA, Region 4 Air Planning Branch, 61 Forsyth Street, SW, Atlanta, Georgia 30303.

Copies of the state submittal are available at the following addresses for inspection during normal business hours:

Environmental Protection Agency, Atlanta Federal Center, Region 4 Air Planning Branch, 61 Forsyth Street S.W., Atlanta, Georgia 30303-3104.
