SUMMARY: Under the Clean Air Act, EPA is proposing to approve the

state implementation plan (SIP) for the Dayton-Springfield and Toledo 
areas, and the Ohio portions of the Parkersburg-Marietta and 
Steubenville-Weirton, West Virginia-Ohio areas to replace onroad

Ohio portion of the Steubenville-Weirton, West Virginia-Ohio area

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 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direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received 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. 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.
