Revisions to the California State Implementation Plan, Sacramento 
Metropolitan Air Quality Management District

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the Sacramento 
Metropolitan Air Quality Management District (SMAQMD) portion of the 
California State Implementation Plan (SIP). Under authority of the 
Clean Air Act as amended in 1990 (CAA or the Act), we are proposing to 
approve a local rule that requires submission of emission statements 
from stationary sources that emit volatile organic compounds and oxides 
of nitrogen.

DATES: Any comments on this proposal must arrive by July 7, 2008.

ADDRESSES: Submit comments, identified by docket number EPA-R09-OAR-
2008-0228, by one of the following methods:
    1. Federal eRulemaking Portal: 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 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 www.regulations.gov or e-mail. 
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 comment. Electronic files should avoid the use of 
special characters, any form of encryption, and be free of any defects 
or viruses.
    Docket: The index to the docket for this action is available 
electronically at 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 FOR FURTHER 

4124, [email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This proposal addresses the following local 
rule: SMAQMD Rule 105, Emission Statement, adopted by the SMAQMD on 
September 5, 1996. In the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal 
Register, we are approving this local rule 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: April 11, 2008.
Jane Diamond,
Acting Regional Administrator, Region IX.
