County Air Pollution Control District, Kern County Air Pollution 
Control District, and Ventura County Air Pollution Control District

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the Imperial County 
Air Pollution Control District (ICAPCD), Kern County Air Pollution 
Control District (KCAPCD), and Ventura County Air Pollution Control 
District (VCAPCD) portions of the California State Implementation Plan 
(SIP). These revisions concern volatile organic compound (VOC) 
emissions from architectural coating operations. 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).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This proposal addresses the following local 
rules: ICAPCD Rule 424, KCAPCD Rule 410.1A, and VCAPCD Rule 74.2.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: May 19, 2011.
Jared Blumenfeld,
Regional Administrator, Region IX.
