Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Proposed rule.


EPA proposes to approve the State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision and request for redesignation submitted by the state of Nebraska for the purpose of redesignating the lead nonattainment area in eastern Douglas County, Nebraska, to attainment of the national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS). In the final rules section of the Federal Register, EPA is approving the state's SIP revision and promulgating an attainment designation as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial action and anticipates no relevant adverse comments to this action. A detailed rationale for the action is set forth in the direct final rule. If no relevant adverse comments are received in response to this action, no further activity is contemplated in relation to this action. If EPA receives relevant adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed action. 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 action must be received in writing by May 21, 2001.


Comments may be mailed to Kim Johnson, Environmental Protection Agency, Air Planning and Development Branch, 901 North 5th Street, Kansas City, Kansas 66101.
