Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Proposed rule.


On June 11, 2014, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a final rule in the Federal Register concerning, in part, promulgation of a Federal Implementation Plan (FIP) provision for regional haze in the State of Washington. This action identifies and corrects an error in that action by adding the factor to convert from tons of sulfur dioxide (SO2) to pounds of SO2 that was inadvertently left out of the amendatory instructions for the FIP for the Alcoa Wenatchee Works.

For further information, please see the direct final action, of the same title, which is located in the Rules section of this Federal Register. The EPA is correcting an error made in a final rule (79 FR 33438, June 11, 2014) by adding the conversion factor from tons to pounds of SO2 to 40 CFR 52.2502(b)(1)(i). The EPA is making this correction without prior proposal because the EPA views this as a noncontroversial revision and anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the action is set forth in the preamble to the direct final rule. If the EPA receives no adverse comments, the EPA will not take further action on this proposed rule.

If the EPA receives adverse comments, the EPA will withdraw the direct final rule and it will not take effect. The EPA will address all public comments in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. The EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting on this action should do so at this time. Please note that if we receive adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the rule, the EPA may adopt as final those provisions of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment.
