AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to 
approve the State Implementation Plan (SIP) and Operating Permits 
Program revisions submitted by the state of Kansas which align the 
state's rules entitled ``Annual Emissions Fee'' with the Federal Air 
Emissions Reporting Requirements Rule (AERR).

DATES: Comments on this proposed action must be received in writing by 
February 26, 2014.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID No. EPA-R07-
OAR-2013-0765, by mail to Lachala Kemp, Environmental Protection 
Agency, Air Planning and Development Branch, 11201 Renner Boulevard,

email at kemp.lachala@epa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the final rules section of the Federal 
Register, EPA is approving the state's SIP and Operating Permits 
Program 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withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a 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.

    Dated: January 8, 2014.
