Revisions to the California State Implementation Plan, Butte 
County Air Quality Management District, Feather River Air Quality 
Management District, and San Luis Obispo County Air Pollution Control 

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to 
approve revisions to the Butte County Air Quality Management District 
(BCAQMD), Feather River Air Quality Management District (FRAQMD), and 
San Luis Obispo County Air Pollution Control District (SLOCAPCD) 
portions of the California State Implementation Plan (SIP). These 
revisions concern emission statements, definitions and mobile equipment 
coating. We are proposing to approve local rules to regulate these 
emission sources under the Clean Air Act (CAA or the Act).

DATES: Any comments on this proposal must arrive by July 13, 2015.

ADDRESSES: Submit comments, identified by docket number EPA-R09-OAR-
2015-0246, by one of the following methods:
    1. Federal eRulemaking Portal: www.regulations.gov. Follow the on-
line instructions.
    2. Email: [email protected].
    3. Mail or deliver: Andrew Steckel (Air-4), U.S. Environmental 
Protection Agency Region IX, 75 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA 
    Instructions: All comments will be included in the public docket 
without change and may be made available online at www.regulations.gov, 
including any personal information provided, unless the comment 
includes Confidential Business Information (CBI) or other information 
whose disclosure is restricted by statute. Information that you 
consider CBI or otherwise protected should be clearly identified as 
such and should not be submitted through www.regulations.gov or email. 
www.regulations.gov is an ``anonymous access'' system, and the EPA will 
not know your identity or contact information unless you provide it in 
the body of your comment. If you send email directly to the EPA, your 
email address will be automatically captured and included as part of 
the public comment. If the EPA cannot read your comment due to 
technical difficulties and cannot contact you for clarification, the 
EPA may not be able to consider your comment. Electronic files should 
avoid the use of special characters, any form of encryption, and be 
free of any defects or viruses.
    Docket: Generally, documents in the docket for this action are 
available electronically at www.regulations.gov and in hard copy at EPA 
Region IX, 75 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, California 94105-3901. 
While all documents in the docket are listed at www.regulations.gov, 
some information may be publicly available only at the hard copy 
location (e.g., copyrighted material, large maps), and some may not be 
publicly available in either location (e.g., CBI). To inspect the hard 
copy materials, please schedule an appointment during normal business 
hours with the contact listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This proposal addresses the following local 
rules: BCAQMD Rule 101, BCAQMD Rule 434, FRAQMD Rule 3.19 and SLOCAPCD 
Rule 222. In the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal 
Register, we are approving these local rules 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 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: May 8, 2015.
Alexis Strauss,
Acting Regional Administrator, Region IX.
