In the final rules section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving the State's SIP submittal repealing lead emission rules which cover stationary sources that are no longer operating in both El Paso County and Dallas County. We are taking this action as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial action and anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the proposed approval is set forth in the direct final rule. If no relevant adverse comments are received in response to this action no further activity is contemplated. If EPA receives relevant adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule.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. Any parties interested in commenting on this action should do so at this time.

For additional information, see the direct final rule which is located in the rules section of this Federal Register and the electronic docket found in the Web site (Docket ID No. EPA-R06-OAR-2005-TX-0002).
