[EPA-R04-OAR-2015-0618; FRL-9945-21-Region 4]

Air Plan Approval: Tennessee: Knox County VOC Limits Revision for 

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to 
approve a portion of a State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision 
submitted by the State of Tennessee, submitted on March 14, 2014, 
through the Tennessee Department of Environmental Conservation on 
behalf of the Knox County Department of Air Quality Management (Knox 
County) to address changes to a Knox County regulation regarding 
permits. EPA is proposing to approve this SIP revision because the 
State has demonstrated that it is consistent with the Clean Air Act.

DATES: Written comments must be received on or before May 23, 2016.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID No. EPA-R04-
OAR-2015-0618 at http://www.regulations.gov. Follow the online 
instructions for submitting comments. Once submitted, comments cannot 
be edited or removed from Regulations.gov. EPA may publish any comment 
received to its public docket. Do not submit electronically any 
information you consider to be Confidential Business Information (CBI) 
or other information whose disclosure is restricted by statute. 
Multimedia submissions (audio, video, etc.) must be accompanied by a 
written comment. The written comment is considered the official comment 
and should include discussion of all points you wish to make. EPA will 
generally not consider comments or comment contents located outside of 
the primary submission (i.e., on the web, cloud, or other file sharing 
system). For additional submission methods, the full EPA public comment 
policy, information about CBI or multimedia submissions, and general 
guidance on making effective comments, please visit http://www2.epa.gov/dockets/commenting-epa-dockets.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the Rules and Regulations section of this 
issue of the Federal Register, EPA is approving the State's 
implementation plan revision 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 no adverse comments 
are received in response to this rule, no further activity is 
contemplated. If EPA receives 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will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in 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. EPA will not 
institute a second comment period on this document. Any parties 
interested in commenting on this document should do so at this time.

    Dated: April 6, 2016.

Regional Administrator, Region 4.
