Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

ACTION:

Proposed rule.

SUMMARY:

The EPA is proposing to approve miscellaneous revisions to the Alabama State Implementation Plan submitted on March 13, 2003, by the State of Alabama. The revisions include addition of rule of chapter 335-3-1-.15 regarding emission inventory reporting requirements for stationary sources, revision of chapter 335-3-3 regarding removal, handling and disposal of asbestos-containing material, revision of chapter 335-3-8 to make minor technical corrections, and revision of chapter 335-3-17 to incorporate changes made to the Federal regulations regarding transportation conformity. 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 significant, material, and adverse comments are received in response to this rule, 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 If EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this rule.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.

DATES:

Written comments must be received on or before May 27, 2003.

ADDRESSES:

All comments should be addressed to: Sean Lakeman; Regulatory Development Section; Air Planning Branch; Air, Pesticides and Toxics Management Division; U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 4; 61 Forsyth Street, SW.; Atlanta, Georgia 30303-8960.
