Indiana; Modifications to Indiana Prevention of Significant 
Deterioration and Non-Attainment New Source Review Rules

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve Indiana's modifications to its 
Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) and Nonattainment New 
Source Review (NNSR) rules. The amendments include grammatical changes, 
corrections to numbering, addition of definitions consistent with 
Federal PSD and NNSR regulations, and removal of references to 
provisions which were vacated in the Federal rules. Indiana submitted 
these rule revisions for approval on November 24, 2010. They are 
consistent with the current Federal PSD and NNSR regulations.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the Final Rules section of this Federal 
Register, EPA is approving the State's State Implementation Plan 
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 adverse comments are received in response 
to this rule, 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adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all 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.

    Dated: June 28, 2011.
