Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; 
Texas; Control of Air Pollution From Motor Vehicles

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: The EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the Texas State 
Implementation Plan (SIP) that amend Title 30 of the Texas 
Administrative Code (TAC), Chapter 114, Control of Air Pollution from 
Motor Vehicles. The State submitted these revisions on May 15, 2006, 
October 10, 2006, January 17, 2008, and February 28, 2008. These 
revisions establish the Rebate Grant Process and the Texas Clean School 
Bus Program under the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP), further 
amend the TERP, and amend the Locally Enforced Motor Vehicle Idling 
Limitations. The EPA is proposing to approve these SIP revisions 
because they allow for clarity and consistency of the SIP requirements. 
The EPA is proposing to approve these revisions pursuant to section 110 
of the Federal Clean Air Act (CAA).

DATES: Written comments must be received on or before May 10, 2010.

ADDRESSES: Comments may be mailed to Mr. Guy Donaldson, Chief, Air 
Planning Section (6PD-L), Environmental Protection Agency, 1445 Ross 
Avenue, Suite 1200, Dallas, Texas 75202-2733. Comments may also be 
submitted electronically or through hand delivery/courier by following 
the detailed instructions in the ADDRESSES section of the direct final 
rule located in the rules section of this Federal Register.

Section (6PD-L), Multimedia Planning and Permitting Division, U.S. 
Environmental Protection Agency, Region 6, 1445 Ross Avenue, Suite 700, 
Dallas, Texas 75202-2733, telephone (214) 665-7241; fax number 214-665-
7263; e-mail address [email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the final rules section of this Federal 
Register, EPA is approving the State's SIP submittal as a direct final 
rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a 
noncontroversial submittal and anticipates no adverse comments. A 
detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final 
rule. If no relevant adverse comments are received in response to this 
action, no further activity is contemplated. If EPA receives 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comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public 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. Any 
parties interested in commenting on this action should do so at this 
time. Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on an amendment, 
paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may be severed 
from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those provisions 
of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment.
    For additional information, see the direct final rule, which is 
located in the rules section of this Federal Register.
