Revisions to the California State Implementation Plan, Imperial 
County Air Pollution Control District and South Coast Air Quality 
Management District

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the Imperial County 
Air Pollution Control District and South Coast Air Quality Management 
District portion of the California State Implementation Plan (SIP). 
These revisions concern volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from 
architectural coatings and organic liquid storage tanks. 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).

DATES: Any comments on this proposal must arrive by February 5, 2007.

ADDRESSES: Submit comments, identified by docket number [EPA-R09-OAR-
2006-0876], by one of the following methods:

    3. Mail or deliver: Andrew Steckel (Air-4), U.S. Environmental

    Instructions: All comments will be included in the public docket

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This proposal addresses the following local 
rules: ICAPCD 424 and SCAQMD 463. 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 comment 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 7, 2006.

Regional Administrator, Region IX.
