ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY
40 CFR Part 52

[MT001-0001b; FRL-5635-7]


Clean Air Act Approval and Promulgation of State Implementation 
Plan for Montana; Revisions to the Montana Air Pollution Control 
Program

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking.

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

SUMMARY: In this document, the EPA is proposing approval of revisions 
to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) submitted by the Governor of 
Montana on May 22, 1995. The revisions included; changes to the State's 
open burning rules which, among other things, address deficiencies and 
add new rules for the open burning of Christmas tree waste and open 
burning for commercial film or video productions; and changes to 
numerous State regulations to make minor administrative amendments and 
to update incorporation by reference citations.
    In the final rules section of this Federal Register, the EPA is 
acting on the State's SIP submittals in a direct final rule without 
prior proposal because the Agency views these submittals as 
noncontroversial and anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed 
rationale for the 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 the EPA 
receives adverse comments, then the direct final rule will be withdrawn 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 document should do so at this time.

DATES: Comments on this proposed action must be received in writing by 
November 22, 1996.

ADDRESSES: Written comments should be addressed to Vicki Stamper, 8P2-
A, at the EPA Regional Office listed below. Copies of the documents 
relevant to this proposed rule are available for public inspection 
during normal business hours at the following locations: Air Program, 
Environmental Protection Agency, Region VIII, 999 18th Street, Suite 
500, Denver, Colorado 80202-2466; and Montana Department of 
Environmental Quality, 1520 East 6th Avenue, P.O. Box 200901, Helena, 
Montana 59620.
