Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
EPA is proposing to approve a revision to the California State Plan for implementing the emissions guidelines applicable to existing municipal solid waste landfills. The revision to the State Plan was submitted by the California Air Resources Board for the State of California to satisfy requirements of section 111(d) of the Federal Clean Air Act. In the Final Rules section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving the revision as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial action and anticipates that it will not receive any significant, material, and adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final rule. If no significant, material, and adverse comments are received in response to this action, no further activity is contemplated in relation to this proposed rule. If EPA receives relevant adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.
Comments must be received in writing by October 22, 2001.
Written comments should be addressed to Andrew Steckel, Rulemaking Office (AIR-4), Air Division, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region IX, 75 Hawthorne Start Printed Page 48402Street, San Francisco, CA 94105-3901.
