40 CFR Part 52

[PA 70-1-7207b; FRL-5338-9]

Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; 
Pennsylvania; Approval of Source-Specific VOC and NOx RACT and 
Synthetic Minor Permit Conditions

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: EPA proposes to approve the State Implementation Plan (SIP) 
revision submitted by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. This revision 
establishes and requires reasonably available control technology (RACT) 
on one major source and establishes permit conditions to limit eight 
source's emissions to below major source levels. 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 SIP revision and anticipates no 
adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in 
the direct final rule and the technical support document. If no adverse 
comments are received in response to this proposed rule, no further 
activity is contemplated in relation to this rule. If EPA receives 
adverse comments, the direct final rule will be amended to withdraw any 
permits that are the subject of adverse comments. Public comments will 
be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. 
Only those permits for which EPA receives adverse comments will be 
addressed by this subsequent rule. 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.

DATES: Comments must be received in writing by March 13, 1996.

ADDRESSES: Written comments on this action should be addressed to 
Marcia L. Spink, Associate Director, Air Programs, Mailcode 3AT00, U.S. 
Environmental Protection Agency, Region III, 841 Chestnut Building, 
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19107. Copies of the documents relevant to 
this action are available for public inspection during normal business
