Approval of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Indiana; Lead Rule 

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to 
approve a request submitted on March 14, 2013, and supplemented on 
November 17, 2014, by the Indiana Department of Environmental 
Management to revise the state implementation plan for lead. The 
submittal updates Indiana's lead rule at Title 326 of the Indiana 
Administrative Code (IAC), Article 15. It also amends 326 IAC Article 
20, to incorporate some of the provisions of EPA's National Emission 
Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants for secondary lead smelters. IDEM 
made the revisions to increase the stringency and clarity of Indiana's 
lead SIP rules.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the Final Rules section of this Federal 
Register, EPA is approving a portion of the State's SIP submittal as a 
direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this 
as a noncontroversial submittal and anticipates no adverse comments. A 
detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final 
rule. If EPA does not receive adverse comments in response to this 
rule, no further activity is contemplated. If EPA receives adverse 
comments, EPA will withdraw the direct final rule and will address all 
public comments received in a subsequent final rule based on this 
proposed rule. EPA will not institute a second comment period. Any 
parties interested in commenting on this action should do so at this 
time. Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on an amendment, 
paragraph, or section of this rule, and if that provision can 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.

    Dated: July 2, 2015.
Susan Hedman,
Regional Administrator, Region 5.
