ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY
40 CFR Part 52

[CA 95-2-6860b; FRL-5160-5]


Approval and Promulgation of State Implementation Plans; 
California State Implementation Plan Revision, Bay Area Air Quality 
Management District

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the California State 
Implementation Plan (SIP) which concern the control of volatile organic 
compound (VOC) emissions from pump and compressor seals at petroleum 
refineries, chemical plants, bulk plants, and bulk terminals; large 
commercial bakeries; and polyester resin operations.
    The intended effect of proposing approval of these rules is to 
regulate emissions of VOCs in accordance with the requirements of the 
Clean Air Act, as amended in 1990 (CAA or the Act). In the final rules 
section of this Federal Register, the 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 adverse comments. A detailed rationale for this approval 
is set forth in the direct final rule. If no adverse comments are 
received in response to this proposed rule, no further activity is 
contemplated in relation to this rule. If EPA receives 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comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public 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 
on this document. Any parties interested in commenting on this action 
should do so at this time.

DATES: Comments on this proposed rule must be received in writing by 
April 6, 1995.

ADDRESSES: Written comments on this action should be addressed to: 
Daniel A. Meer, Rulemaking Section (A-5-3), Air and Toxics Division,
