SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This proposal updates the delegation tables in 40 CFR parts 60 and 61, to allow easier access by the public to the status of local jurisdictions. In the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal Register, we are updating these delegations tables in a direct final action without prior proposal because we believe these delegations 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 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 Start Printed Page 2510time. If we do not receive adverse comments, no further activity is planned. For further information, please see the direct final action.
