Approval and Promulgation of State Implementation Plan, South 
Carolina: Adoption of General Conformity Rules

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: On November 8, 1996, the South Carolina Department of Health 
and Environmental Control submitted revisions to the South Carolina 
State Implementation Plan (SIP) concerning the adoption of criteria and 
procedures for demonstrating and assuring the ``Conformity of General 
Federal Actions.'' In the final rules section of this Federal Register, 
the EPA is approving the State of South Carolina's SIP revision as a 
direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this 
as a noncontroversial revision amendment and anticipates no adverse 
comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the 
direct final rule. If no adverse comments are received in response to 
that direct final rule, no further activity is contemplated in relation 
to this proposed rule. 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final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be 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. The 
EPA will not institute a second comment period on this document. Any 
parties interested in commenting on this document should do so at this 

DATES: To be considered, comments on this proposed action must be 
received by July 16, 1997.
