Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
On December 9, 1996, the Governor of Utah submitted a request to redesignate the Ogden City “moderate” carbon monoxide (CO) nonattainment area to attainment for the CO National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS). The Governor also submitted a CO maintenance plan. In addition, on July 8, 1998, the Governor submitted revisions to Utah's Rule R307-8 “Oxygenated Gasoline Program”. In this action, EPA is proposing approval of the Ogden City CO redesignation request, the maintenance plan, and the revisions to Rule R307-8. In the Final Rules Section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving the State's redesignation request and State Implementation Plan (SIP) revisions, involving the maintenance plan and the changes to Rule R307-8, as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views the redesignation and SIP revisions as noncontroversial 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 this proposed rule, no further activity is contemplated in relation to this 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 If EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule.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. Any parties interested in commenting on this action should do so at this time.
Comments on this proposed rule must be received in writing by April 9, 2001.
