Environmental Protection Agency.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve a request by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) submitted on February 14, 2014, and supplemented on October 27, 2014, to revise the Michigan state implementation plan (SIP) to incorporate sulfur dioxide (SO2) limits found in “Part 4: Emissions Limitations and Prohibitions—Sulfur Bearing Compounds” of Michigan's Air Pollution Control Rules. EPA is proposing to take no action on the provisions pertaining to the Federal Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) SO2 trading program because CAIR is no longer in effect.

In the Final Rules section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving a portion of the State's SIP submittal 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 EPA does not receive adverse comments in response to this rule, no further activity is contemplated. If EPA receives adverse comments, EPA will withdraw the direct final rule and will address all public comments received 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. Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rulemaking, and if that provision can be severed from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those provisions 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.
