Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Proposed rule.

SUMMARY:

EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the Georgia State Implementation Plan (SIP), submitted by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division on September 26, 2006, with a clarifying revision submitted on November 6, 2006. The September 26, 2006, submittal includes multiple modifications to Georgia's Air Quality Rules found at Chapter 391-3-1. Previously, EPA took action on the majority of the September 26, 2006, submittal in an action published in the Federal Register on February 9, 2010. In today's action, EPA is addressing only the portion of the September 26, 2006, submittal that relates to revisions to Georgia's Stage II gasoline vapor recovery rule at 391-3-1-.02(zz). These revisions are part of Georgia's strategy to meet the national ambient air quality standards. EPA has preliminarily determined that these revisions are consistent with the December 12, 2006, EPA memorandum from Stephen D. Page entitled Removal of Stage II Vapor Recovery in Situations Where Widespread Use of Onboard Refueling Vapor Recovery is Demonstrated. EPA is proposing to approve Georgia's SIP revisions pursuant to section 110 of the Clean Air Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final rule. If no 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 If EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. 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.

For additional information see the direct final rule which is published in the Rules Section of this Federal Register.
