The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is taking final action to approve revisions to the Pinal County Air Quality Control District (PCAQCD) portion of the Arizona State Implementation Plan (SIP). These revisions concern the District's negative declarations for the 2008 8-hour ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS or ``standards'') in the portion of the Phoenix-Mesa ozone nonattainment area under the jurisdiction of the PCAQCD and two volatile organic compound (VOC) rules covering gasoline dispensing and surface coating operations. We are approving local rules that regulate these emission sources under the Clean Air Act (CAA or the Act). This approval stops all sanction and federal implementation plan clocks started by our August 9, 2019 partial and limited disapproval actions.\1\ ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
