Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; South Dakota; 
Revisions to South Dakota Codified Law and Administrative Rules of 
South Dakota

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or the ``Agency'') is 
proposing approval of South Dakota's submittal requesting that EPA 
recognize the merger of South Dakota's Department of Agriculture (DOA) 
with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) to form 
the new Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources (DANR) and 
incorporate corresponding non-substantive revisions to the South Dakota 
Codified Law (SDCL) and the Administrative Rules of South Dakota (ARSD) 
into South Dakota's State Implementation Plan. Accordingly, EPA is 
proposing to approve South Dakota's submittal in accordance with the 
Clean Air Act (CAA).

DATES: Written comments must be received on or before May 11, 2022.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID No. EPA-R08-
OAR-2021-0807, to the Federal Rulemaking Portal: https://www.regulations.gov. Follow the online instructions for submitting 
comments. Once submitted, comments cannot be edited or removed from 
www.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 https://www.epa.gov/dockets/commenting-epa-dockets.

as copyrighted material, will be publicly available only in hard copy.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document ``we,'' ``us,'' and 
``our'' means EPA. In the Final Rules section of this Federal Register, 
EPA is approving the State's SIP submittal 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 relevant adverse comments are received in response to this 
rule, no further activity is contemplated. If EPA receives such 
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. Any 
parties interested in commenting on this action should do so at this 
time. Please note that if 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, EPA may adopt as final those provisions 
of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment. For 
additional information, see the direct final rule which is located in 
the Rules section of this issue of the Federal Register.
