Limited Maintenance Plan

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to 
approve a second 10-year carbon monoxide (CO) limited maintenance plan 
(LMP) for the Medford area, submitted by the Oregon Department of 
Environmental Quality (ODEQ) on December 11, 2015, along with a 
supplementary submittal on December 30, 2015, as a revision to its 
State Implementation Plan (SIP). In accordance with the requirements of 
the Clean Air Act (CAA), the EPA is approving this SIP revision because 
it demonstrates that the Medford area will continue to meet the CO 
National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for a second 10-year 
period beyond redesignation, through 2025.

DATES: Comments must be received on or before August 19, 2016.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID No. EPA-R10-
OAR-2015-0854 at http://www.regulations.gov, or via email to 
[email protected]. 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

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: For further information, please see the 
direct final action, of the same title, which is located in the Rules 
and Regulations section of this Federal Register. The EPA is approving 
the State's SIP revision as a direct final rule without prior proposal 
because the EPA views this as a noncontroversial SIP revision and 
anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval 
is set forth in the preamble to the direct final rule. If the EPA 
receives no adverse comments, the EPA will not take further action on 
this proposed rule.
    If the EPA receives adverse comments, the EPA will withdraw the 
direct final rule and it will not take effect. The EPA will address all 
public comments in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. 
The 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 we receive adverse comment on an amendment, 
paragraph, or section of the 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.

    Dated: June 30, 2016.
Michelle L. Pirzadeh,
Acting Regional Administrator, Region 10.
