ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 52

[EPA-R06-OAR-2013-0808; FRL-9932-49-Region 6]


Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; Texas; 
Infrastructure Requirements for the 1997 Ozone and the 1997 and 2006 
PM2.5 NAAQS

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to 
finalize a change to the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) to reflect a 
2014 EPA approval to a State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision to 
regulate greenhouse gases (GHGs) in Texas' Prevention of Significant 
Deterioration (PSD) permitting program and to show that the SIP 
deficiency identified in a prior partial disapproval for the 1997 Ozone 
and the 1997 and 2006 PM2.5 National Ambient Air Quality 
Standards (NAAQS) has been addressed.

DATES: Written comments should be received on or before October 5, 
2015.

ADDRESSES: Comments may be mailed to Mr. Guy Donaldson, Chief, Air 
Planning Section (6PD-L), 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: Carl Young, 214-665-6645, 
[email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the final rules section of this Federal 
Register, the EPA is finalizing a change to the CFR without prior 
proposal because the Agency views this as noncontroversial submittal 
and anticipates no adverse comments. The change is to reflect a 2014 
EPA approval to a SIP revision to regulate GHGs in the Texas PSD 
permitting program and to show that the SIP deficiency identified in a 
prior partial disapproval has been addressed. 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comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public 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: August 26, 2015.
Ron Curry,
Regional Administrator, Region 6.
