Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Proposed rule.

SUMMARY:

The EPA is proposing to approve the State Implementation Plan revision submitted on June 22, 2004 by the State of New York to revise the Carbon Monoxide maintenance plan for Onondaga County, New York. EPA is proposing to approve this New York CO maintenance plan because it provides for continued maintenance of the CO National Ambient Air Quality Standard.

In the “Rules and Regulations” section of this Federal Register, EPA is proposing to approve the State's SIP submittal, 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 EPA receives no adverse comments, EPA will not take further action on this proposed rule. If EPA receives adverse comments, EPA will withdraw the direct final rule and it will not take effect. EPA will address all public comments in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. The EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting on this action should do so at this time.

DATES:

Written comments must be received on or before October 11, 2005.
