SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the Rules section of this Federal 
Register, EPA is amending 40 CFR part 62 to reflect the States' 
submittals of the negative declarations 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 action is set forth in the direct final rule. If no adverse 
comments are received in response to this rule, no further activity is 
contemplated. If EPA receives adverse comments, we will withdraw the 
direct final rule and will address all public comments 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 any part of this rule, and if that provision may 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.

    Dated: November 8, 2013.

Regional Administrator, Region 5.
