SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This proposal addresses PCAPCD Rule 502, New 
Source Review. 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 a 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: July 31, 2014.
Jared Blumenfeld,
Regional Administrator, Region IX.
