Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Proposed rule.


EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District's portion of the California State Implementation Plan. These revisions concern a local fee rule that applies to major sources of volatile organic compound and nitrogen oxide emissions within the Sacramento Metropolitan ozone nonattainment area. We are proposing to approve a local rule that regulates these emission sources under the Clean Air Act as amended in 1990.


Any comments on this proposal must arrive by September 25, 2003.

This proposal addresses the following local rule: Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District Rule 307, Clean Air Act Fees. In the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal Register, we are approving this local rule in a direct final action without prior proposal because we believe these SIP revisions are not controversial. If we receive adverse comments, however, we will publish a timely withdrawal of the direct final rule and address the comments in a subsequent action based on this proposed rule.

We do not plan to open a second comment period, so anyone interested in commenting should do so at this time. If we do not receive adverse comments, no further activity is planned. For further information, please see the direct final action.
