the State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision submitted by the state of 
Missouri on May 8, 2012, related to a Missouri rule titled ``Control of 
Emissions from Hand-Fired Equipment.'' This SIP revision provides a 
rule to allow the burning of discarded clean wood in non-residential 
(commercial owned and operated) heating devices, with restrictions to 
ensure environmentally-sound operation, in the St. Louis metropolitan 
area.

DATES: Comments on this proposed action must be received in writing by 
November 20, 2014.

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

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the final rules section of the 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 revision amendment and anticipates no relevant adverse 
comments to this action. 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adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all 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.
