Revisions to the California State Implementation Plan, Imperial 
County, Placer County, and Ventura County Air Pollution Control 

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the Imperial County 
Air Pollution Control District (ICAPCD), Placer County Air Pollution 
Control District (PCAPCD) and Ventura County Air Pollution Control 
District (PCAPCD) portions of the California State Implementation Plan 
(SIP). Under authority of the Clean Air Act as amended in 1990 (CAA or 
the Act), we are proposing to approve local rules that address emission 
statements for ICAPCD and PCAPCD and definitions for VCAPCD.

DATES: Any comments on this proposal must arrive by January 7, 2013.

ADDRESSES: Submit comments, identified by docket number [EPA-R09-OAR-
2012-0120], by one of the following methods:
    1. Federal eRulemaking Portal: www.regulations.gov. Follow the on-
line instructions.
    2. Email: steckel.andrew@epa.gov.
    3. Mail or deliver: Andrew Steckel (Air-4), U.S. Environmental 
Protection Agency Region IX, 75 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA 
    Instructions: All comments will be included in the public docket 
without change and may be made available online at www.regulations.gov, 
including any personal information provided, unless the comment 
includes Confidential Business Information (CBI) or other information 
whose disclosure is restricted by statute. Information that you 
consider CBI or otherwise protected should be clearly identified as 
such and should not be submitted through www.regulations.gov or email. 
www.regulations.gov is an ``anonymous access'' system, and EPA will not 
know your identity or contact information unless you provide it in the 
body of your comment. If you send email directly to EPA, your email 
address will be automatically captured and included as part of the 
public comment. If EPA cannot read your comment due to technical 
difficulties and cannot contact you for clarification, EPA may not be 
able to consider your comment. Electronic files should avoid the use of 
special characters, any form of encryption, and be free of any defects 
or viruses.
    Docket: Generally, documents in the docket for this action are 
available electronically at www.regulations.gov and in hard copy at EPA 
Region IX, 75 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, California. While all 
documents in the docket are listed at www.regulations.gov, some 
information may be publicly available only at the hard copy location 
(e.g., copyrighted material, large maps), and some may not be publicly 
available in either location (e.g., CBI). To inspect the hard copy 
materials, please schedule an appointment during normal business hours 
with the contact listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This proposal addresses the following local 
rules: ICAPCD Rule 116, PCAPCD Rule 503, and VCAPCD Rule 2. In the 
Rules and Regulations section of this Federal Register, we are 
approving these local rules in a direct final action without prior 
proposal because we believe these SIP revisions are not controversial. 
If we receive adverse comments, however, we will publish a timely 
withdrawal of the direct final rule and address the comments in 
subsequent action based on this proposed rule. Please note that if we 
receive adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this 
rule and if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the 
rule, we may adopt as final those provisions of the rule that are not 
the subject of an adverse comment.
    We do not plan to open a second comment period, so anyone 
interested in commenting should do so at this time. If we do not 
receive adverse comments, no further activity is planned. For further 
information, please see the direct final action.

    Dated: July 19, 2012.
Jared Blumenfeld,
Regional Administrator, Region IX.
