Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
EPA proposes to approve revisions to the Butte County Air Quality Management District (BCAQMD) State Implementation Plan (SIP) which concern the permitting of stationary sources of air emissions. We are proposing to approve local rules to regulate these emission sources under the Clean Air Act as amended in 1990 (CAA or the Act).Start Printed Page 21902

This proposal addresses the following local rules: BCAQMD 403, 422, 424, 1105, 4-3 (recision), 4.5A (recision), 4.5B (recision), 4-6 (recision), 4-6A (recision), 4.9 (recision), and 4-11 (recision). In the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal Register, we are approving action on these local rules in a direct final action without prior proposal because we believe these SIP revisions are 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
