Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Proposed rule.


EPA proposes to approve State Implementation Plan (SIP) revisions submitted by the State of Maryland. The revisions adopt by reference the EPA definition of volatile organic compounds (VOC), update the Federal citation of the prevention of significant deterioration (PSD) requirements references in Maryland's definitions and general emission standards provisions, and revise the general records and information requirements for installations and sources. In the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving these revisions to the State of Maryland's SIP as a direct final rule in accordance with the requirements of the Clean Air Act. If EPA receives no adverse comments on the direct final rule, EPA will not take further action. If EPA receives adverse comments on the direct final rule, EPA will withdraw the direct final rule and it will not take effect. EPA will address all public comments in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting on this action should do so at this time.


Comments must be received in writing by June 27, 2002.
