ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 52

[EPA-R03-OAR-2013-0058; FRL-9904-48-Region 3]


Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; 
Pennsylvania; Update of the Motor Vehicle Emissions Budgets for the 
Lancaster 1997 8-Hour Ozone Maintenance Area

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to 
approve revisions to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's (Pennsylvania) 
State Implementation Plan (SIP). One revision consists of an update to 
the SIP-approved Motor Vehicle Emissions Budgets (MVEBs) for nitrogen 
oxides (NOX) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) for the 
1997 8-Hour Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) SIP for 
Lancaster County (also referred to as the ``Lancaster Maintenance 
Area''). The other SIP revision updates the point source inventory for 
NOX and VOCs. 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 action, 
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the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments 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.

DATES: Comments must be received in writing by January 27, 2014.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID Number EPA-
R03-OAR-2013-0058 by one of the following methods:

submitting comments.

    Instructions: Direct your comments to Docket ID No. EPA-R03-OAR-
2013-0058. EPA's policy is that all comments received will be included

unless the comment includes information claimed to be Confidential 
Business Information (CBI) or other information whose disclosure is

identity or contact information unless you provide it in the body of 
your comment. If you send an email comment directly to EPA without 
going through ww.regulations.gov, your email address will be 
automatically captured and included as part of the comment that is 
placed in the public docket and made available on the Internet. If you 
submit an electronic comment, EPA recommends that you include your name 
and other contact information in the body of your comment and with any 
disk or CD-ROM you submit. If EPA cannot read your comment due to 
technical difficulties and cannot contact you for clarification, EPA 
may not be able to consider your comment. Electronic files should avoid 
the use of special characters, any form of encryption, and be free of 
any defects or viruses.
    Docket: All documents in the electronic docket are listed in the 
www.regulations.gov index. Although listed in the index, some 
information is not publicly available, i.e., CBI or other information 
whose disclosure is restricted by statute. Certain other material, such 
as copyrighted material, is not placed on the Internet and will be 
publicly available only in hard copy form. Publicly available docket 
materials are available either electronically in www.regulations.gov or 
in hard copy during normal business hours at the Air Protection 
Division, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region III, 1650 Arch 
Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19103. Copies of the State submittal 
are available at Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, 
Bureau of Air Quality Control, P.O. Box 8468, 400 Market Street, 
Harrisburg, Pennsylvania 17105.
