40 CFR Part 52

[EPA-R07-OAR-2015-0170; FRL-9925-23-Region 7]


Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; State of 
Missouri, Control of Sulfur Emissions From Stationary Boilers

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to 
approve an amendment to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) submitted 
by the State of Missouri on October 17, 2013, related to the Missouri 
rule ``Control of Sulfur Emissions from Stationary Boilers.'' The SIP 
revision is administrative and provides clarity on the applicability of 
emission limits and removes definitions originally included in this 
rule which have been moved to the ``Definitions and Common Reference 
Tables'' rule.

DATES: Comments on this proposed action must be received in writing by 
April 29, 2015.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID No. EPA-R07-
OAR-2015-0170, by mail to Larry Gonzalez, Environmental Protection 
Agency, Air Planning and Development Branch, 11201 Renner Boulevard, 
Lenexa, Kansas 66219. 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: Larry Gonzalez, Environmental 
Protection Agency, Air Planning and Development Branch, 11201 Renner 
Boulevard, Lenexa, Kansas 66219 at 913-551-7041, or by email at

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: EPA is proposing to approve an amendment to 
the SIP submitted by the State of Missouri on October 17, 2013, related 
to Missouri rule 10 CSR 10-5.570 ``Control of Sulfur Emissions from 
Stationary Boilers.'' The SIP revision is administrative and provides 
clarity on the applicability of emission limits specified at 10 CSR 10-
5.570(3)(A)2. Additionally, the amendment removes definitions 
originally included in 10 CSR 10-5.570 which have been moved to 10 CSR 
10.6.020 ``Definitions and Common Reference Tables''.
    In the final rules section of the Federal Register, EPA is 
approving the state's SIP revision as a direct final rule without prior 
proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial revision 
amendment and anticipates no relevant adverse comments to this action. 
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 in relation to this action. 
If EPA receives relevant 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 action. EPA will not 
institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties 
interested in commenting on this action should do so at this time. 
Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on part of this rule 
and if that part can be severed from the remainder of the rule, EPA may 
adopt as final those parts 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.
