Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve revisions submitted to the applicable State Implementation Plans (SIPs) addressing the requirements of EPA's Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) for Arkansas and Louisiana. EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the CAIR NOX Ozone Season allocation methodology adopted on December 5, 2008, by the Arkansas Pollution Control and Ecology Commission and submitted as revisions to the Arkansas SIP on September 16, 2009. EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the CAIR NOX Annual and Ozone Season Abbreviated SIP for the annual and ozone season NOX allocation methodologies and the CAIR SO2 SIP adopted on June 20, 2008 by the State of Louisiana and submitted as revisions to the Louisiana SIP on July 1, 2009. EPA has evaluated the CAIR SIP revisions for Arkansas and Louisiana and made the preliminary determination that these revisions are consistent with the requirements of CAIR and the Clean Air Act. Therefore we are proposing to approve the revisions to the Arkansas and Louisiana SIPs under section 110 of the Act.
