ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 52

[EPA-R07-OAR-2012-0293; FRL-9781-4]


Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; State of 
Kansas; Idle Reduction of Heavy-Duty Diesel Vehicles and Reduction of 
Nitrogen Oxides (NOX) Emissions for the Kansas City Ozone 
Maintenance Area

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve the State Implementation Plan 
(SIP) submitted by the State of Kansas on July 27, 2010, to add two new 
rules which implement restrictions on the idling of heavy duty diesel 
vehicles and reduce nitrogen oxide (NOX) emissions at 
stationary sources in the Kansas portion of the Kansas City Maintenance 
Area for ozone. EPA is approving this revision because the standards 
and requirements set by the rules will strengthen the Kansas SIP. EPA's 
approval of this SIP revision is being done in accordance with the 
requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA).

DATES: Written comments should be received on or before March 22, 2013.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID No. EPA-R07-
OAR-2012-0293, by mail to Lachala Kemp, Environmental Protection 
Agency, Air Planning and Development Branch, 11201 Renner Boulevard, 
Lenexa, Kansas 66219. Comments may also be submitted electronically or 
through hand delivery/courier by following the detailed instructions in 
the ADDRESSES section of the direct final rule located in the rules 
section of this Federal Register.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lachala Kemp, Air Planning and 
Development Branch, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 7, 
11201 Renner Boulevard, Lenexa, Kansas 66219, at (913) 551-7214 or by 
email at kemp.lachala@epa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the final rules section of the 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 revision amendment and anticipates no relevant adverse 
comments to this action. A detailed rationale for the approval is set 
forth in the direct final rule. If no relevant adverse comments

[[Page 11805]]

are received in response to this action, no further activity is 
contemplated in relation to this action. If EPA receives relevant 
adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all 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 action. Any parties interested in commenting on this 
action should do so at this time. Please note that if EPA receives 
adverse comment on part of this rule and if that part can be severed 
from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those parts 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 Federal Register.

    Dated: February 6, 2013.

Regional Administrator, Region 7.
