Albuquerque/Bernalillo County

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve a revision to the New Mexico

Albuquerque/Bernalillo County State Implementation Plan (SIP). This revision replaces Regulation 8, Airborne Particulate Matter, with NMAC 20.11.20, Fugitive Dust Control. This rulemaking action is being taken under section 110 of the Clean Air Act (CAA).

DATES: Written comments must be received on or before May 1, 2009.

ADDRESSES: Comments may be mailed to Mr. Guy Donaldson, Chief, Air

Planning Section (6PD-L), Environmental Protection Agency, 1445 Ross

Avenue, Suite 1200, Dallas, Texas 75202-2733. 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.

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 action 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 If EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule.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 Federal Register.

Dated: March 16, 2009.

Lawrence E. Starfield,

Acting Regional Administrator, Region 6.
