ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Parts 52, 62, and 70

[EPA-R07-OAR-2013-0724; FRL 9907-78-Region 7]


Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans, State Plans 
for Designated Facilities and Pollutants, and Operating Permits 
Program; State of Missouri

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to 
approve revisions to the Missouri State Implementation Plan (SIP), the 
40 CFR part 62 state plans for designated facilities and pollutants 
(111(d)), and the 40 CFR part 70 operating permits program, which were 
received on August 25, 2011, May 8, 2012, and February 11, 2013, 
respectively. The revisions submitted by the state move definitions 
currently in individual rules into one rule and eliminates the risk of 
the same term being defined differently for different rules. This 
action provides more clarity for the regulated public. These revisions 
do not have an adverse affect on air quality. EPA's proposed approval 
of these rule revisions is being done in accordance with the 
requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA).

DATES: Comments on this proposed action must be received in writing by 
April 16, 2014.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID No. EPA-R07-
OAR-2013-0724, by mail to Paula Higbee, Environmental Protection 
Agency, Air Planning and Development Branch, 11201 Renner Boulevard, 
Lenexa, Kansas 66219. Comments may also be submitted electronically or 
through hand delivery/courier by following the detailed instructions in 
the ADDRESSES section of the direct final rule located in the rules 
section of this Federal Register.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Paula Higbee, Environmental Protection 
Agency, Air Planning and Development Branch, 11201 Renner Boulevard, 
Lenexa, Kansas 66219 at 913-551-7028, or by email at

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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.

    Dated: February 28, 2014.
