Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Proposed rule.

SUMMARY:

EPA is proposing to approve a revision to the Kentucky State Implementation Plan (SIP) submitted by the Kentucky Environmental and Public Protection Cabinet on December 14, 2006. The revision includes changes to the definitions section of Kentucky's Air Quality Regulations regarding the definition of “volatile organic compounds,” which was updated to be consistent with the federal definition. In the Final Rules Section of this Federal Register, the EPA is approving Kentucky's SIP revision 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 adverse comments are received in response to this rule, no further activity is contemplated. If EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. The EPA will not institute a second comment period on this document. Any parties interested in commenting on this document should do so at this time.

DATES:

Written comments must be received on or before October 15, 2007.
