Missouri

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: EPA is proposing action to approve a revision to the State 
Implementation Plan (SIP) submitted by the State of Missouri for the 
purpose of incorporating administrative changes to the Missouri rule 
entitled, ``Municipal Solid Waste Landfills''. EPA is proposing to 
approve this SIP revision based on EPA's finding that the rule is as 
stringent as the rule it replaces and fulfills the requirements of the 
Clean Air Act (CAA or Act) for the protection of the ozone National 
Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) in St. Louis.

DATES: Comments on this proposed action must be received in writing by 
May 15, 2014.

OAR-2013-0672, by mail to Craig Bernstein, 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

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Craig Bernstein, Environmental 
Protection Agency, Air Planning and Development Branch, 11201 Renner 
Boulevard, Lenexa, Kansas 66219; at 913-551-7688; or by email at 
Bernstein.craig@epa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the final rules section of this 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 action and anticipates no relevant adverse comments 
because the revisions are administrative and consistent with Federal 
regulations. 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direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received 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.
