Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Proposed rule.


EPA is proposing to approve the State Implementation Plan submitted on February 15, 2001, by the Memphis and Shelby County Health Department through the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation for the purpose of redesignating Shelby County from nonattainment to attainment for the lead national ambient air quality standard. In the Final Rules section of this Federal Register, the EPA is approving the State's SIP revision as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial submittal 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 action, no further activity is contemplated. If EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. The EPA will not institute a second comment period on this document. Any parties interested in commenting on this document should do so at this time.


Written comments must be received on or before June 4. 2001.


Written comments should be addressed to Kimberly Bingham, at the EPA Regional Office listed below. The interested persons wanting to examine these documents should make an appointment with the appropriate office at least 24 hours before the visiting day.
