SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

EPA is proposing to approve an amendment to the SIP submitted by the State of Missouri on October 17, 2013, related to Missouri rule 10 CSR 10-5.570 “Control of Sulfur Emissions from Stationary Boilers.” The SIP revision is administrative and provides clarity on the applicability of emission limits specified at 10 CSR 10-5.570(3)(A)2. Additionally, the amendment removes definitions originally included in 10 CSR 10-5.570 which have been moved to 10 CSR 10.6.020 “Definitions and Common Reference Tables”.

In the final rules section of the 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 revision amendment and anticipates no relevant adverse comments to this action. A detailed rationale for the 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 in relation to this action. If EPA receives relevant adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed action. 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 EPA receives adverse comment on part of this rule and if that part can be severed from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those parts of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment. For additional information, see the direct final rule which is located in the rules section of this Federal Register.
