Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Proposed rule.


EPA is approving the Section 111(d) Plan for the State of Alabama submitted by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) on April 20, 1999, for implementing and enforcing the Emissions Guidelines applicable to existing Hospital/Medical/Infectious Waste Incinerators. The Plan was submitted by the ADEM to satisfy certain Federal Clean Air Act requirements. In the Final Rules Section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving the Alabama State Plan submittal as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial submittal and anticipates that it will not receive any significant, material, and adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final rule. If no significant, material, and adverse comments are received in response to this 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 If EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.


Comments must be received in writing by May 10, 2000.
