DOCUMENT ACTION: Proposed rule.
Approval of the Clean Air Section 112(I) Program for Hazardous Air Pollutants and Delegation of Authority to the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality
DATES: Written comments must be received by January 12, 2006. [[Page 73676]]
The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (ODEQ) has submitted updated regulations for receiving delegation of EPA authority for implementation and enforcement of National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs) for all sources (both part 70 and nonpart 70 sources). These regulations apply to certain NESHAPs promulgated by EPA, as amended through September 1, 2004. The delegation of authority under this action does not apply to sources in Indian Country. EPA is providing notice proposing to approve the delegation of certain NESHAPs to ODEQ.
In the final rules section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving ODEQ's request for delegation of authority to implement and enforce certain NESHAPs for all sources (both Part 70 and nonPart 70 sources). The ODEQ has adopted certain NESHAPs into Oklahoma's state regulations. In addition, EPA is waiving its notification requirements so sources will only need to send notifications and reports to ODEQA.
The EPA is taking direct final action without prior proposal
because EPA views this is 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 adverse comments are
received in response to this action rule, no further activity is
contemplated. If EPA receives 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will be withdrawn, and all public comments received will be addressed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 on this action. Any parties
interested in commenting must do so at this time. Please note that if
EPA receives adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of
this rule and if that provision may be served 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. For additional information, see the
direct final rule which is published in the Rules section of this Federal Register.
