[EPA-R06-OAR-2015-0033; FRL-9925-20-Region 6]

Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; Texas; Public 
Participation for Air Quality Permit Applications

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to 
approve two provisions submitted by the State of Texas as revisions to 
the Texas State Implementation Plan (SIP) on July 2, 2010, specific to 
the applicability of the public notice requirements to applications for 
Plant-Wide Applicability (PAL) permits and standard permits for 
concrete batch plants without enhanced controls. Today's proposal and 
the accompanying direct final action will complete the rulemaking 
process started in our December 13, 2012, proposal and approve the 
public notice provisions into the Texas SIP. The EPA is proposing to 
convert the public notice applicability provisions for Texas Flexible 
Permits from a final conditional approval to a full approval. The EPA 
is proposing approval of these revisions

pursuant to section 110 and parts C and D of the Federal Clean Air Act.

DATES: Written comments should be received on or before April 29, 2015.

ADDRESSES: Comments may be mailed to Ms. Adina Wiley, 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

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Adina Wiley, 214-665-2115, 
[email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the final rules section of this Federal 
Register, the EPA is approving the State's SIP submittal as a direct 
final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as 
noncontroversial submittal and anticipates no adverse comments. A 
detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final 
rule. If no relevant adverse comments are received in response to this 
action no further activity is contemplated. If the EPA receives 
relevant adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and 
those public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final 
rule based on this proposed rule. The EPA will not institute a second 
comment period. Any parties interested in commenting on this action 
should do so at this time.
    For additional information, see the direct final rule which is 
located in the rules section of this Federal Register.

    Dated: March 16, 2015.
Samuel Coleman,
Acting Regional Administrator, Region 6.
