Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management Districts (SMAQMD) portion of the California State Implementation Plan (SIP). This revision concerns emergency episodes. We are proposing to approve a local rule to regulate emergency episodes under the Clean Air Act as amended in 1990 (CAA or the Act).
Any comments on this proposal must arrive by October 5, 2000.
Mail comments to Andy Steckel, Rulemaking Office Chief (AIR-4), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region IX, 75 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA 94105-3901.
You can inspect copies of the submitted SIP revisions and EPA's technical support documents (TSDs) at our Region IX office during normal business hours. You may also see copies of the submitted SIP revisions at the following locations:

This proposal addresses SMAQMD Rule 701. In the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal Register, we are approving this rule in a direct final action without prior proposal because we believe this SIP revision is not controversial. If we receive adverse comments, however, we will publish a timely withdrawal of the direct final rule and address the comments in subsequent action based on this proposed rule. We do not plan to open a second comment period, so anyone interested in commenting should do so at this time. If we do not receive adverse comments, no further activity is planned. For further information, please see the direct final action.Start Signature
