Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Minnesota, 38071-38073 [05-13059]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 126 / Friday, July 1, 2005 / Proposed Rules New Jersey’s procedure requires either submission of a NOX control plan if specific emission limitations do not apply to the specific source, or submission of a request for an alternative maximum allowable emission rate if specific emission limitations do apply to the specific source. In either case, the owners/ operators must include a technical and economic feasibility analysis of the possible alternative control measures. Also, in either case, Subchapter 19 requires that New Jersey establish emission limits which rely on a RACT determination specific to the facility. The resulting NOX control plan or alternative maximum allowable emission rate must be submitted to EPA to approval as a SIP revision. C. When Was New Jersey’s RACT Determination Proposed and Adopted? New Jersey’s RACT determination was proposed on October 23, 2004, with a public comment period ending November 24, 2004. New Jersey adopted the RACT determination on March 9, 2005. D. When Was New Jersey’s SIP Revision Submitted to EPA? New Jersey’s SIP revision was submitted to EPA on March 31, 2005. EPA determined the submittal administratively and technically complete on April 25, 2005. III. Conclusion EPA is proposing to approve the New Jersey SIP revision for an alternative RACT emission limit determination for Schering’s HRSG with duct burner. This SIP revision contains source-specific NOX emission limitations for Schering. EPA will consider all information submitted prior to any final rulemaking action as a supplement or amendment to the SIP submittal. EPA is requesting public comment on the issues discussed in today’s action. EPA will consider all public comments before taking final action. Interested parties may participate in the Federal rulemaking procedure by submitting comments to the EPA Regional Office listed in the ADDRESSES section. IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993), this proposed action is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ and therefore is not subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget. For this reason, this action is also not subject to Executive Order 13211, ‘‘Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, VerDate jul<14>2003 17:07 Jun 30, 2005 Jkt 205001 Distribution, or Use’’ (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001). This proposed action merely proposed to approve state law as meeting federal requirements and imposes no additional requirements beyond those imposed by state law. Accordingly, the Administrator certifies that this proposed rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.). Because this rule proposes to approve pre-existing requirements under state law and does not impose any additional enforceable duty beyond that required by state law, it does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or uniquely affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–4). This proposed rule also does not have tribal implications because it will not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000). This action also does not have federalism implications because it does not have substantial direct effects on the states, on the relationship between the National Government and the states, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government, as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999). This action merely proposes to approve a state rule implementing a federal standard, and does not alter the relationship or the distribution of power and responsibilities established in the Act. This proposed rule also is not subject to Executive Order 13045 ‘‘Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks’’ (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), because it is not economically significant. In reviewing SIP submissions, EPA’s role is to approve state choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the Act. In this context, in the absence of a prior existing requirement for the state to use voluntary consensus standards (VCS), EPA has no authority to disapprove a SIP submission for failure to use VCS. It would thus be inconsistent with applicable law for EPA, when it reviews a SIP submission, to use VCS in place of a SIP submission that otherwise satisfies the provisions of the Act. Thus, the requirements of section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) do not PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 38071 apply. This proposed rule does not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).

ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the sulfur dioxide requirements for Flint Hills Resources, L.P. (Flint Hills) of Dakota County, Minnesota. The requested revisions will allow the Rosemont, Minnesota petroleum refinery to produce ultra low sulfur diesel fuel. This expansion will add five sources and create an increase in sulfur dioxide emissions. An analysis of the additional sources was conducted. The results shows that the air quality of Dakota County will remain in compliance with the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for sulfur dioxide. In the final rules section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving the SIP revision as a direct final rule without prior proposal, because EPA views this as a noncontroversial revision and anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final rule. If we do not receive any adverse comments in response to these direct final and proposed rules, we do not contemplate taking any further action in relation to this proposed rule. If EPA receives adverse comments, we will withdraw the direct final rule and will respond to all public comments in a subsequent final rule based on this E:\FR\FM\01JYP1.SGM 01JYP1 38072 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 126 / Friday, July 1, 2005 / Proposed Rules proposed rule.

EPA is approving the State’s SIP revision as a direct final rule without prior proposal because EPA views this as a noncontroversial SIP revision and anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the preamble to the direct final rule. If EPA receives no adverse comments, EPA will not take further action on this proposed rule. If EPA receives adverse comments, EPA will withdraw the direct final rule and it will not take effect. EPA will address all public comments in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting on this action should do so at this time. Please note that if we receive 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. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the Limited Maintenance Plan for the Spokane nonattainment area (NAA) in Washington and grant the request by the State to redesignate the area from nonattainment to attainment for PM10. On November 30, 2004, the State of Washington submitted a Limited Maintenance Plan (LMP) for the Spokane nonattainment area (NAA) for approval and concurrently requested that EPA redesignate the Spokane NAA to attainment for the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter less than or equal to a nominal 10 micrometers (PM10). In 1997, EPA approved Washington’s moderate area plan for the Spokane NAA for all PM10 sources except windblown dust. In this action, EPA is also proposing to approve the remaining elements of the Spokane NAA moderate area plan for windblown dust sources. DATES: Comments must be received on or before August 1, 2005.
