The EPA is proposing to approve the portions of the ``MAG 2017 8-Hour Ozone Moderate Area Plan'' (``MAG 2017 Ozone Plan'' or ``Plan'') that address the requirements for emissions inventories, a demonstration of attainment by the applicable attainment date, reasonably available control measures, reasonable further progress (RFP), motor vehicle emission budgets for transportation conformity, vehicle inspection and maintenance programs, new source review rules, and offsets. The EPA is proposing to disapprove the portion of the MAG 2017 Ozone Plan that addresses the requirements for contingency measures for failure to attain or to make RFP. However, based on a separate proposed action finding that the Phoenix nonattainment area attained the 2008 ozone standard by the applicable attainment date, we are also proposing to determine that the requirement for contingency measures will no longer apply to the Phoenix nonattainment area. Finally, we are proposing to approve the portions of a SIP revision, the ``2014 Eight-Hour Ozone Plan--Submittal of Marginal Area Requirements for the Maricopa Nonattainment Area (June 2014)'' (``MAG 2014 Ozone Plan''), on which we previously deferred action.

This action is based on EPA's determination that these revisions satisfy all requirements needed for program approval. This action also proposes to codify EPA's approval of Maine's state program and to incorporate by reference those provisions of the State regulations that we have determined meet the requirements for approval. The provisions will be subject to EPA's inspection and enforcement authorities under sections 9005 and 9006 of RCRA subtitle I and other applicable statutory and regulatory provisions.

This proposed rule would revise the commercial and recreational minimum size limit for the Gulf zone of the Gulf migratory group of cobia (Gulf cobia).

These registrants currently provide many disclosures in response to the items set forth in Industry Guide 3 (``Guide 3''), Statistical Disclosure by Bank Holding Companies, which are not Commission rules. The proposed rules would update the disclosures that investors receive, codify certain Guide 3 disclosures and eliminate other Guide 3 disclosures that overlap with Commission rules, U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (``U.S. GAAP''), or International Financial Reporting Standards (``IFRS''). In addition, we propose to relocate the codified disclosures to a new subpart of Regulation S-K and to rescind Guide 3.
