    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document, ``we,'' ``us'' and ``our'' refer to the EPA. This proposal addresses revisions to the Arizona SIP concerning the emission inventory, emission statements, reasonably available control technology corrections and the vehicle inspection and maintenance requirements for the Phoenix-Mesa 2008 eight-Hour Ozone NAAQS Marginal nonattainment area. In the Rules and Regulations section of this Federal Register, we are approving these revisions in a direct final action without prior proposal because we believe these SIP revisions are not controversial.

    We do not plan to open a second comment period, so anyone interested in commenting should do so at this time. If we do not receive adverse comments, no further activity is planned. For further information, please see the direct final action.
