State of Utah on February 25, 2013, August 5, 2013, and March 5, 2014. 
These submittals request SIP revisions to incorporate several changes 
to Utah's rules, including the permit public notice and comment process

provisions. EPA is taking this action in accordance with section 110 of 
the Clean Air Act (CAA).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of 
this 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 SIP revision and anticipates no adverse comments. 
A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the preamble to 
the direct final rule.
    If EPA receives no adverse comments, EPA will not take further 
action on this proposed rule. If EPA receives adverse comments, EPA 
will withdraw the direct final rule and it will not take effect. EPA 
will address all public comments in a subsequent final rule based on 
this proposed rule.
    EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action. Any 
parties interested in commenting must do so at this time. For further 
information, please see the ADDRESSES section of this document.
    Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on a distinct 
provision of this rule and if that provision may 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. See the 
information provided in the Direct Final action of the same title which 
is located in the Rules and Regulations Section of this Federal 

    Authority:  42 U.S.C. 7401 et seq.

    Dated: August 4, 2015.

Regional Administrator, Region 8.
