Delegation of New Source Performance Standards and National 
Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for the States of 
Arizona and Nevada

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to 
approve updates to the Code of Federal Regulations delegation tables to 
reflect the current delegation status of New Source Performance 
Standards and National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants 
in Arizona and Nevada.

DATES: Comments must be received by June 12, 2017.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID No. EPA-R09-
OAR-2017-0071 at https://www.regulations.gov, or via email to 
Steckel.Andrew@epa.gov. For comments submitted at Regulations.gov, 
follow the online instructions for submitting comments. Once submitted, 
comments cannot be edited or removed from Regulations.gov. For either 
manner of submission, the 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. The 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, please contact the person 
identified in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section. For the full 
EPA public comment policy, information about CBI or multimedia 
submissions, and general guidance on making effective comments, please 
visit https://www2.epa.gov/dockets/commenting-epa-dockets.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jeffrey Buss, EPA Region IX, (415) 
947-4152, buss.jeffrey@epa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of 
this Federal Register, the EPA is approving updates to the Code of 
Federal Regulations delegation tables to reflect the current delegation 
status of New Source Performance Standards and National Emission 
Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants in Arizona and Nevada. We are 
approving these updates in a direct final action without prior proposal 
because we believe this action is not controversial. A detailed 
rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final rule. If we 
receive adverse comments, however, we will publish a timely withdrawal 
of the direct final rule and address the comments in a subsequent final 
rule based on this proposed rule. Please note that if the EPA receives 
adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule and 
if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the rule, the 
EPA may adopt as final those provisions of the rule 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: March 24, 2017.
Elizabeth J. Adams,
Acting Director, Air Division, Region IX.
