This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The EPA is proposing to make a determination that Manitowoc and Door Counties in Wisconsin have attained the one-hour ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS), and we are proposing to approve the State of Wisconsin's request to redesignate Manitowoc and Door Counties to attainment for ground level ozone. In proposing to approve this redesignation request, we are also proposing to approve the State's plan for maintaining the one-hour ozone standard for the next 10 years as a revision to the Wisconsin State Implementation Plan (SIP). We are notifying the public that we believe the motor vehicle emissions budgets for volatile organic compounds (VOC) and oxides of nitrogen (NOX) in the maintenance plan for Manitowoc and Door Counties are adequate for conformity purposes and are proposing to approve the budgets as part of the maintenance plan. We are also proposing to approve a 1999 periodic inventory for the Milwaukee-Racine ozone nonattainment area. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) submitted the redesignation request and SIP revisions on January 28, 2003, and submitted additional information on February 5, 2003 and February 27, 2003. 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 on 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.
EPA must receive written comments on or before May 19, 2003.
