AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to 
approve revisions to the Imperial County Air Pollution Control District 
(ICAPCD) portion of the California State Implementation Plan (SIP). 
These revisions concern oxides of nitrogen (NOX) emissions 
from wallboard kilns and internal combustion engines. We are proposing 
to approve local rules to regulate these emission sources under the 
Clean Air Act (CAA or the Act).

    Instructions: All comments will be included in the public docket

includes Confidential Business Information (CBI) or other information 
whose disclosure is restricted by statute. Information that you

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This proposal addresses the following local 
rules: Rule 400.3, Internal Combustion Engine(s), and Rule 400.4, 
Emissions of Oxides of Nitrogen from Wallboard Kilns. 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: August 20, 2014.
Jared Blumenfeld,
Regional Administrator, Region IX.
