Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Proposed rule.


The EPA is proposing to approve, through direct final procedure, a revision to the flow control date in the Oxides of Nitrogen (NOX) budget trading program. This plan revision was submitted for approval by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency on November 26, 2003. The revision changes the flow control date to 2005 in Ohio's NOX State Implementation Plan (SIP) rule, Ohio Administrative Code 3745-14-06. This date change was a condition for the approval of the Ohio NOX SIP, which was conditionally approved by EPA on August 5, 2003. 68 FR 46089. If EPA receives written adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. If no such adverse written comments are received, the direct final rule will take effect on the date stated in that document and no further activity will be taken on this proposed rule. Any party interested in commenting on this action should do so at this time.


Written comments must be received on or before April 21, 2004.

Comments may also be submitted electronically or through hand delivery/courier, please follow the detailed instructions described in Part (I)(B)(1)(i) through (iii) of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section of the related direct final rule which is published in the Rules section of this Federal Register.
