Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the California State Implementation Plan (SIP) for the Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District (SBCAPCD). The revisions consist of negative declarations for four volatile organic compound source categories. The intended effect of this action is to bring the SBCAPCD portion of the California SIP up to date in accordance with the requirements of the Clean Air Act, as amended in 1990 (CAA or the Act). EPA is proposing the approval of these negative declarations for the California SIP under provisions of the CAA regarding EPA action on SIP submittals, SIPs for national primary and secondary ambient air quality standards, and plan requirements for nonattainment areas. EPA is approving these revisions in accordance with the requirements of the CAA.
Any comments on this proposal must arrive by September 25, 2002.

In the final rules section of this Federal Register, the EPA is approving the State's SIP submittal 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 this approval is set forth in the direct final rule. If no adverse comments are received, no further activity is contemplated. If EPA Start Printed Page 54759receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule.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. Any parties interested in commenting should do so at this time.Start Signature
