Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Pennsylvania; Revision to the Vehicle Inspection and Maintenance Program for the South Central and Northern Regions and New Safety Inspection Program Enhancements for Non-I/M Areas
Document Number: 05-8324
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-04-26
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA is proposing to approve a State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision submitted by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. This SIP revision amends Pennsylvania's prior, Federally approved enhanced vehicle inspection and maintenance (I/M) SIP, in particular to the I/M test type to apply to sixteen counties (Berks, Blair, Cambria, Centre, Cumberland, Dauphin, Erie, Lancaster, Lackawanna, Lebanon, Lehigh, Luzerne, Lycoming, Mercer, Northampton and York). Pennsylvania had previously adopted (but did not commence) a different form of testing for these counties, which EPA previously SIP-approved. Pennsylvania's revised SIP: Incorporates onboard diagnostic computer system checks for vehicles equipped with second generation onboard diagnostic systems (OBD-II) in the 8-county South Central Region (comprised of Berks, Dauphin, Cumberland, Lancaster, Lebanon, Lehigh and York Counties); applies different I/M test requirements for the South Central Region versus the 8-county Northern Region (comprised of Blair, Cambria, Centre, Erie, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Lycoming and Mercer Counties) in order to address the different air pollution concerns and vehicle fleets of those regions; revises Pennsylvania's motor vehicle safety inspection program (as it applies to forty-two counties not subject to Federal I/M program requirements) to include a visual inspection of safety-subject vehicles for the presence of certain emissions-related components, consistent with visual inspections performed under the I/M program in I/M-subject counties; revises the prior approved I/M SIP to incorporate miscellaneous program changes made by Pennsylvania since commencement of the enhanced I/M program in 1997 in the Pittsburgh and Philadelphia Regions; removes references in the prior approved SIP to the now defunct basic inspection program, which operated in the Allentown/Bethlehem/Easton program area until 1999. EPA proposes to approve Pennsylvania's I/M program revision submitted December 1, 2003, as amended April 24, 2004. This action is being taken under the authority of the Clean Air Act.
Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Pennsylvania; Revision to the Vehicle Inspection and Maintenance Program for the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh I/M Regions
Document Number: 05-8323
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-04-26
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA is proposing to approve a State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision submitted by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. This revision establishes mandatory onboard diagnostic testing under the Commonwealth's motor vehicle inspection and maintenance (I/M) program, which applies to motorists in the I/M- designated areas (denoted by Pennsylvania as I/M Regions) of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. This onboard diagnostic I/M testing applies only to 1996-and-newer vehicles that are already subject to Pennsylvania's existing I/M program and that are equipped with second generation on-board diagnostic systems (or OBD-II). The Commonwealth's SIP revision also includes a revised I/M program regulation that is an updated version of the previously approved Pennsylvania I/M SIP. This revised regulation contains minor updates made by Pennsylvania to their I/M program since inception of enhanced I/M testing in the Pittsburgh and Philadelphia areas since 1997. However, these administrative changes (which affect the Commonwealth's entire I/M program in all regions) were also part of a separate I/M program SIP revision submitted by Pennsylvania on December 1, 2003. EPA is addressing those administrative, program-wide changes via a separate, simultaneous rulemaking action on that December 2003 SIP revision. Therefore, those administrative changes are not being readdressed by EPA here. For purposes of this rulemaking action, only changes in the testing regimen applicable to the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh I/M Regions are addressed. The intended effect of this action is to propose approval of the Commonwealth's revised I/M program submitted to EPA on January 30, 2004, as amended on April 29, 2004. This action is being taken under the authority of the Clean Air Act.

Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Maryland; Clarification of Visible Emissions Exception Provisions
Document Number: 05-8318
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-04-26
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
EPA proposes to approve the State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision submitted by the State of Maryland Department of the Environment for the purpose of clarifying exception provisions of the visible emissions regulations for several source categories. 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, 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.
