Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Proposed rule.

SUMMARY:

EPA is proposing to remedy an inadvertent omission in the Tennessee State Implementation Plan (SIP) regarding visibility in 40 CFR 52.2234. EPA approved Tennessee's visibility rules addressing new source review on July 18, 1996, and a plan addressing monitoring and reporting of visibility on July 2, 1997. EPA's approval of these rules neglected to remove the previous federally promulgated provisions from the Federal Implementation Plan contained in 40 CFR 52.2234. EPA is proposing to correct this omission in this rulemaking. This action is being taken pursuant to section 110 of the Clean Air Act. In the Final Rules Section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving the State'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.

DATES:

Written comments must be received on or before May 21, 2010.
