NOTICE: PROPOSED RULES

ACTION: Air Quality State Implementations Plans; Revisions:

DOCUMENT ACTION: Proposed rule.

SUBJECT CATEGORY:

Air Quality State Implementations Plans; Revisions:

DATES: Any comments on this proposal must arrive by March 3, 2014.

DOCUMENT SUMMARY:

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve revisions to the Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District (SBCAPCD) portion of the California State Implementation Plan (SIP). These revisions concern volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from solvent cleaning machines and operations, coating of metal parts and products and polyester resin operations. We are proposing to approve local rules to regulate these emission sources under the Clean Air Act as amended in 1990 (CAA or the Act).

SUMMARY:

Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION

This proposal addresses the following local rules: SBCAPCD Rule 321, Solvent Cleaning Machines and Solvent Cleaning, SBCAPCD Rule 330, Surface Coating of Metal Parts and Products and SBCAPCD Rule 349, Polyester Resin Operations. 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 comments 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: November 22, 2013.

Regional Administrator, Region IX.
