Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; 
Michigan; PSD Rules for PM2.5

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to 
approve revisions to Michigan's Prevention of Significant Deterioration 
Program rules and definitions, including revisions to Parts 1 and 18 of 
Michigan's Air Pollution Control Rules into Michigan's State 
Implementation Plan (SIP). The revised rules address the Federal 
requirements for significant emission levels, and definitions for fine 
particulate matter. The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality 
submitted these revisions to EPA on August 9, 2013, and September 19, 
2013.

DATES: Comments must be received on or before May 5, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the 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 adverse comments are received in response to this rule, no 
further activity is contemplated. If EPA receives adverse comments, we 
will withdraw the direct final rule and will address all public 
comments in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed action. 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 which 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: March 17, 2014.

Regional Administrator, Region 5.
