This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
EPA is proposing to approve revisions to total suspended particulate (TSP) and sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions regulations for National Starch and Chemical Company (National Starch), and TSP regulations for Allison Transmission (Allison). Both of these facilities are located in Marion County, Indiana. The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) submitted the revised regulations on February 3, 1999, August 30, 1999, and May 17, 2000, as amendments to its State Implementation Plan (SIP). The revisions include the relaxation of some limits, the tightening of one limit, and the elimination of limits for several sources which are no longer operating. The revisions also include the combination of annual emissions limits for several boilers, and recordkeeping requirements. These SIP revisions result in an overall decrease in allowed TSP emissions of about 406 tons per year for National Starch, and no change in overall annual emissions for Allison. Air quality modeling analyses conducted by IDEM show that the maximum daily and annual impacts of these SIP revisions are below established significance levels. Therefore, these SIP revisions will not have an adverse effect on air quality.
EPA must receive written comments by September 1, 2000.
