(CAA or the Act).

    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 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 EPA, your email 
address will be automatically captured and included as part of the 
public comment. If EPA cannot read your comment due to technical 
difficulties and cannot contact you for clarification, 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.

available electronically at www.regulations.gov and in hard copy at EPA

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

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document, ``we,'' ``us'' and 
``our'' refer to the EPA. This proposal addresses the following local 
rules: 201, 203, 204, and 206. 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 a particular 
rule, we may adopt as final those rules 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: December 3, 2015.
Jared Blumenfeld,
Regional Administrator, Region IX.
