Environmental Protection Agency.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve a February 1, 2001, request from Wisconsin to revise its State Implementation Plan (SIP) for ozone. Wisconsin's submittal revises the state's regulations to control volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from automobile refinishing operations. In addition, on July 31, 2001, Wisconsin submitted a SIP revision that, among other things, renumbers a portion of the regulations submitted on February 1, 2001. EPA acted on the majority of the July 31, 2001 submittal in our approval Start Printed Page 64784of the state's one-hour ozone attainment demonstration. We are addressing the renumbering portion of that submittal with this proposed action. In the Final Rules section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving the state's SIP revision, as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial revision and anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final rule. If we receive no adverse comments in response to that direct final rule, we plan to take no further action in relation to this proposed rule. If we receive significant adverse comments, in writing, which we have not addressed, we will withdraw the direct final rule and address all public comments received in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. The EPA will not institute a second comment period on this document.
Written comments must be received on or before January 14, 2002.
