ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 52

[MI76-01-7285b; FRL-7023-3]


Approval and Promulgation of Maintenance Plan Revisions; Michigan

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to
approve a March 22, 2001, request from Michigan for a State
Implementation Plan (SIP) revision of the Muskegon County, Michigan
ozone maintenance plan. The maintenance plan revision allocates a
portion of the safety margin to the transportation conformity Mobile
Vehicle Emissions Budget (MVEB) for the year 2010. EPA is approving the
allocation of 2.14 tons per day of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and
3.27 tons/day of Oxides of Nitrogen ( NO<SUB>X</SUB>) to the area's
2010 MVEB. This allocation will still maintain the total emissions for
the area below the attainment level required by the transportation
conformity regulations. In the Final Rules section of this 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 and anticipates no adverse comments. A
detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final
rule. If we receive no adverse comments in response to that direct
final rule we

[[Page 40947]]

plan to take no further action in relation to this proposed rule. If we
receive written adverse comments which we have not addressed, we will
withdraw the direct final rule and address all public comments received
in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. The EPA will
not institute a second comment period on this action.

DATES: Written comments must be received on or before September 5,
2001.

ADDRESSES: Send written comments to: Carlton Nash, Chief, Regulation
Development Section, Air Programs Branch, (AR-18J), U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency, Region 5, 77 West Jackson Boulevard, Chicago,
Illinois, 60604. You may inspect copies of the documents relevant to
