ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 62

[CA 013-MSWb; FRL-6440-1]


Approval and Promulgation of State Plans for Designated 
Facilities and Pollutants: California

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve the California State Plan for 
implementing the emissions guidelines applicable to existing municipal 
solid waste (MSW) landfills. The Plan was submitted by the California 
Air Resources Board (CARB) for the State of California to satisfy 
requirements of section 111(d) of the Federal Clean Air Act. In the 
Final Rules section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving the 
California State Plan as a direct final rule without prior proposal 
because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial action and 
anticipates that it will not receive any significant, material, and 
adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in 
the direct final rule. If no significant, material, and adverse 
comments are received in response to this action, no further activity 
is contemplated in relation to this proposed rule. If EPA receives 
relevant adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and 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.

DATES: Comments must be received in writing by October 25, 1999.

ADDRESSES: Written comments should be addressed to Andrew Steckel, 
Rulemaking Office (AIR-4), Air Division, U.S. Environmental Protection 
Agency, Region IX, 75 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA 94105-3901.
    Copies of the documents relevant to this proposed rule are 
available for public inspection at EPA's Region IX office during normal 
business hours. Copies of the submitted State Plan are also available 
for inspection at the following location: California Air Resources 
Board, Stationary Source Division, Rule Evaluation Section, 2020 ``L'' 
Street, Sacramento, CA 95812.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Patricia A. Bowlin, (AIR-4), Air 
Division, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region IX, 75 Hawthorne 
Street, San Francisco, CA 94105-3901, Telephone: (415) 744-1188.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: See the information provided in the Direct 
Final action which is located in the Rules section of this Federal 
Register.
