EPA is approving sections 111(d)/129 State Plans as a direct final rule without prior proposal because EPA views this as a noncontroversial submittal and anticipates no adverse comments.

EPA will not institute a second comment period. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this time. Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those provisions of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment.
