New Source Performance Standards and National Emission Standards 
for Hazardous Air Pollutants; Delegation of Authority to New Mexico

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: The New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) as submitted 
updated regulations for receiving delegation of the Environmental 
Protection Agency (EPA) authority for implementation and enforcement of 
New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) and National Emission Standards 
for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for all sources (both part 70 and 
non-part 70 sources). The delegation of authority under this action 
does not apply to sources located in Bernalillo County, New Mexico or 
sources located in Indian Country. EPA is providing notice that it is 
updating the delegation of certain NSPS to NMED and taking direct final 
action to approve the delegation of certain NESHAPs to NMED.

DATES: Written comments on this proposed rule must be received on or 
before March 4, 2015.

ADDRESSES: Comments may be mailed to Mr. Rick Barrett, Air Permits 
Section (6PD-R), 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.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Rick Barrett, (214) 665-7227; 
email: barrett.richard@epa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the final rules section of this Federal 
Register, EPA is approving NMED's request for delegation of authority 
to implement and enforce certain NSPS and NESHAP for all sources (both 
part 70 and non-part 70 sources). NMED has adopted certain NSPS and 
NESHAP by reference into New Mexico's state regulations. In addition, 
EPA is waiving its notification requirements so sources will only need 
to send notifications and reports to NMED.
    The EPA is taking direct final action without prior proposal 
because EPA views this as a noncontroversial action and anticipates no 
adverse comments. A detailed rationale for this approval is set forth 
in the preamble to the direct final rule. If no 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will be withdrawn, and all public comments received will be addressed 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 
must do so at this time. If EPA receives adverse comment on an 
amendment, paragraph, or section of the 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.
