ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 52

[EPA-R07-OAR-2014-0602; FRL 9918-74-Region-7]


Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; State of 
Missouri, Controlling Emissions During Episodes of High Air Pollution 
Potential

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is taking direct 
final action to approve a revision submitted by the State of Missouri 
and received by EPA on December 17, 2013, pertaining to Missouri's rule 
``Controlling Emissions During Episodes of High Air Pollution 
Potential.'' This rule specifies conditions that establish air 
pollution alerts and emergency alert levels, and associated procedures 
and emission reduction objectives statewide. This action revises the 
SIP by amending an existing table in the rule, clarifying requirements 
of the rule related to emission reduction plans and other rule 
provisions, and makes administrative and format changes all consistent 
with Federal regulations.

DATES: Comments on this proposed action must be received in writing by 
December 4, 2014.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID No. EPA-R07-
OAR-2014-0602, by mail to Amy Bhesania, Environmental Protection 
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 
section of this Federal Register.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Amy Bhesania, Environmental Protection 
Agency, Air Planning and Development Branch, 11201 Renner Boulevard, 
Lenexa, Kansas 66219 at (913) 551-7147, or by email at 
bhesania.amy@epa.gov.

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adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all 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.
