ACTION:

DATES:

Written comments should be received on or before October 5, 2015.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In the final rules section of this Federal Register, the EPA is finalizing a change to the CFR without prior proposal because the Agency views this as noncontroversial submittal and anticipates no adverse comments. The change is to reflect a 2014 EPA approval to a SIP revision to regulate GHGs in the Texas PSD permitting program and to show that the SIP deficiency identified in a prior partial disapproval has been addressed. 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. If the EPA receives relevant adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. The 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.
