[EPA-R06-OAR-2008-0063; FRL-9923-20-Region 6]


National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants; 
Delegation of Authority to Oklahoma

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (ODEQ) has 
submitted updated regulations for receiving delegation of Environmental 
Protection Agency (EPA) authority for implementation and enforcement of 
National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for 
all sources (both part 70 and non-part 70 sources). The delegation of 
authority under this action does not apply to sources located in Indian 
Country. EPA is providing notice that it is taking direct final action 
to approve the delegation of certain NESHAPs to ODEQ.

DATES: Written comments on this proposed rule must be received on or 
before March 26, 2015.

ADDRESSES: Comments may be mailed to Mr. Rick Barrett, Air Permits 
Section (6PD-R), Environmental Protection Agency, 1445 Ross Avenue, 
Suite 1200, Dallas, Texas 75202-2733. 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: Mr. Rick Barrett, (214) 665-7227; 
email: [email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the final rules section of this Federal 
Register, EPA is approving ODEQ's request for delegation of authority 
to implement and enforce certain NESHAP for all sources (both part 70 
and non-part 70 sources). ODEQ has adopted certain NESHAPs by reference 
into Oklahoma's state regulations. In addition, EPA is waiving its 
notification requirements so sources will only need to send 
notifications and reports to ODEQ. The EPA is taking direct final 
action without prior proposal because EPA views this as a 
noncontroversial action and anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed 
rationale for this approval is set forth in the preamble to the direct 
final rule. If no relevant adverse comments are received in response to 
this action, no further activity is contemplated. 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relevant adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn, and 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 rule. EPA will not institute a second 
comment period. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this 
time. If EPA receives relevant adverse comment on an amendment, 
paragraph, or section of the rule and if that provision may be severed 
from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those provisions

of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment.

located in the Rules section of this Federal Register.
