SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On April 17, 2007, EPA proposed, under the 
Clean Air Act, approval of certain revisions to the applicable state 
implementation plan for the State of Nevada and disapproval of certain 
other revisions. These revisions involve State rules governing 
applications for, and issuance of, permits for stationary sources, but 
not including review and permitting of major sources and major 
modifications under parts C and D of title I of the Clean Air Act. 
These revisions involve submittal of certain new or amended State rules 
and requests by the State for rescission of certain existing rules from 
the state implementation plan. The proposed rule divides the SIP 
revisions into three categories: (1) Separable permit-related rules for 
which EPA has proposed action on a rule-by-rule basis; (2) submitted 
rules that comprise the bulk of the permitting program for which EPA 
has proposed disapproval as a whole; and (3) existing SIP rules for 
which NDEP has requested rescission and for which EPA has proposed 
action on a rule-by-rule basis. See tables 1, 2 and 3 in the proposed 
rule at 72 FR 19144, at 19146-19149 for the lists of affected rules.
    The proposed action provided a 60-day public comment period. In 
response to a request from Leo M. Drozdoff, P.E., Administrator, Nevada 
Division of Environmental Protection, submitted by letter on May 7, 
2007, EPA is extending the comment period for an additional 60 days.

    Dated: May 29, 2007.
Wayne Nastri,
Regional Administrator, Region IX.
