Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
EPA is proposing to approve a revision to the South Coast Air Quality Start Printed Page 16670Management District (SCAQMD) portion of the California State Implementation Plan (SIP). This revision concerns particulate matter (PM-10) emissions from open fires. We are proposing to approve local rules that regulate this emission source under the Clean Air Act as amended in 1990 (CAA or the Act).
Any comments on this proposal must arrive by May 8, 2002.

This proposal addresses the approval of the local SCAQMD Rules 208 and 444. In the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal Register, we are approving these local rules in a direct final action without prior proposal because we believe this SIP revision is 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
