Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Proposed rule.


The EPA proposes to approve the State implementation plan (SIP) revisions submitted by the State of Tennessee for the purpose of revising the regulations for definitions and visible emission in the Tennessee SIP. 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 If EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule.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 August 15, 2002.


All comments should be addressed to Steven M. Scofield at the EPA, Region 4 Air Planning Branch, 61 Start Printed Page 46618Forsyth Street, SW., Atlanta, Georgia 30303-8960.
