SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On April 17, 2007, EPA proposed, under the Clean Air Act, approval of certain revisions to the applicable state implementation plan for the State of Nevada and disapproval of certain other revisions. These revisions involve State rules governing applications for, and issuance of, permits for stationary sources, but not including review and permitting of major sources and major modifications under parts C and D of title I of the Clean Air Act. These revisions involve submittal of certain new or amended State rules and requests by the State for rescission of certain existing rules from the state implementation plan. The proposed rule divides the SIP revisions into three categories: (1) Separable permit-related rules for which EPA has proposed action on a rule-by-rule basis; (2) submitted rules that comprise the bulk of the permitting program for which EPA has proposed disapproval as a whole; and (3) existing SIP rules for which NDEP has requested rescission and for which EPA has proposed action on a rule-by-rule basis. See tables 1, 2 and 3 in the proposed rule at 72 FR 19144, at 19146-19149 for the lists of affected rules.

The proposed action provided a 60-day public comment period. In response to a request from Leo M. Drozdoff, P.E., Administrator, Nevada Division of Environmental Protection, submitted by letter on May 7, 2007, EPA is extending the comment period for an additional 60 days.
