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

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the South Coast Air 
Quality Management District (SCAQMD) and the Ventura County Air 
Pollution Control District (VCAPCD) portions of the California State 
Implementation Plan (SIP). This action revises various definitions of 
terms used by the SCAQMD and rescinds duplicate requirements for 
landfills from the VCAPCD. We are proposing to approve and rescind 
these local rules under the Clean Air Act as amended in 1990 (CAA or 
the Act).

DATES: Any comments on this proposal must arrive by February 7, 2007.

ADDRESSES: Submit comments, identified by docket number EPA-R09-OAR-
2006-0843, by one of the following methods:
    1. Federal eRulemaking Portal: http://www.regulations.gov. Follow 
the on-line instructions.
    2. E-mail: [email protected].
    3. Mail or deliver: Andrew Steckel (Air-4), U.S. Environmental 
Protection Agency Region IX, 75 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA 
    Instructions: All comments will be included in the public docket 
without change and may be made available online at http://www.regulations.gov, including any personal information provided, 
unless the comment includes Confidential Business Information (CBI) or 
other information whose disclosure is restricted by statute. 
Information that you consider CBI or otherwise protected should be 
clearly identified as such and should not be submitted through http://www.regulations.gov or e-mail. http://www.regulations.gov is an 
``anonymous access'' system, and EPA will not know your identity or 
contact information unless you provide it in the body of your comment. 
If you send e-mail directly to EPA, your e-mail address will be 
automatically captured and included as part of the public comment. If 
EPA cannot read your comment due to technical difficulties and cannot 
contact you for clarification, EPA may not be able to consider your 
    Docket: The index to the docket for this action is available 
electronically at http://www.regulations.gov and in hard copy at EPA 
Region IX, 75 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, California. While all 
documents in the docket are listed in the index, some information may 
be publicly available only at the hard copy location (e.g., copyrighted 
material), and some may not be publicly available in either location 
(e.g., CBI). To inspect the hard copy materials, please schedule an 
appointment during normal business hours with the contact listed in the 

947-4120, [email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This proposal addresses the following local 
rules: SCAQMD 102, ``Definitions of Terms'' and VCAPCD 74.17, ``Solid 
Waste Disposal Sites.'' In the Rules and Regulations section of this 
Federal Register, we are approving SCAQMD 102 and rescinding VCAPCD 
74.17 in a direct final action without prior proposal because we 
believe this SIP revision is 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: December 11, 2006.
Laura Yoshii,
Acting Regional Administrator, Region IX.
