Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Proposed rule.


EPA proposes to approve the section 111(d)/129 State Plan submitted by the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) for the State of Mississippi on August 29, 2002, for implementing and enforcing the Emissions Guidelines applicable to existing Commercial and Industrial Solid Waste Incinerators. The Plan was submitted by MDEQ to satisfy Federal Clean Air Act requirements. In the final rules section of this Federal Register, the EPA is approving the Mississippi State Plan as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial plan 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 the direct final rule, no further activity is contemplated in relation to this proposed rule. If EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule.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 rule. Any parties interested in commenting on this rule should do so at this time.


Comments must be received in writing by June 11, 2003.


All comments should be addressed to: Joydeb Majumder, EPA Region 4, Air Toxics and Monitoring Branch, 61 Forsyth Street, SW, Atlanta, Georgia 30303-3104. Copies of materials submitted to EPA may be examined during normal business hours at the above listed Region 4 location. The interested person wanting to examine this document should make an appointment with the office at least 24 hours in advance.
