ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: EPA is announcing the approval of an amendment to the statewide NOX rule for the state of Missouri. The purpose of this rule is to reduce the state’s contribution to the St. Louis 8-hour ozone nonattainment area. Consequently, the reductions in NOX emissions will also help to reduce the amount of PM2.5 precursors in the area. This action is necessary to complete the process of incorporating the amended rule into Missouri’s ozone SIP. DATES: This rule is effective on August 12, 2005. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Michael Jay at (913) 551–7460 or by email at jay.michael@epa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document whenever ‘‘we’’, ‘‘us’’, or ‘‘our’’ is used, we mean EPA. This section provides additional information by addressing the following questions: What is a SIP? What is the Federal approval process for a SIP? What does Federal approval of a state regulation mean to me? What is being addressed in this document? How does the statewide NOX rule relate to the NOX SIP call? Have the requirements for approval of a SIP revision been met? What action is EPA taking? What Is a SIP? * * * * * 1.179–5 ..................................... 1545–1201 .................... * * * * * VerDate jul<14>2003 ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY Jkt 205001 Section 110 of the Clean Air Act (CAA) requires states to develop air pollution regulations and control strategies to ensure that state air quality meets the national ambient air quality standards established by EPA. These ambient standards are established under section 109 of the CAA, and they currently address six criteria pollutants. These pollutants are: Carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, lead, particulate matter, and sulfur dioxide. Each state must submit these regulations and control strategies to us for approval and incorporation into the Federally-enforceable SIP. Each Federally-approved SIP protects air quality primarily by addressing air pollution at its point of origin. These PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 40193 SIPs can be extensive, containing state regulations or other enforceable documents and supporting information such as emission inventories, monitoring networks, and modeling demonstrations. What Is the Federal Approval Process for a SIP? In order for state regulations to be incorporated into the Federallyenforceable SIP, states must formally adopt the regulations and control strategies consistent with state and Federal requirements. This process generally includes a public notice, public hearing, public comment period, and a formal adoption by a stateauthorized rulemaking body. Once a state rule, regulation, or control strategy is adopted, the state submits it to us for inclusion into the SIP. We must provide public notice and seek additional public comment regarding the proposed Federal action on the state submission. If adverse comments are received, they must be addressed prior to any final Federal action by us. All state regulations and supporting information approved by EPA under section 110 of the CAA are incorporated into the Federally-approved SIP. Records of such SIP actions are maintained in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at title 40, part 52, entitled ‘‘Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans.’’ The actual state regulations which are approved are not reproduced in their entirety in the CFR outright but are ‘‘incorporated by reference,’’ which means that we have approved a given state regulation with a specific effective date. What Does Federal Approval of a State Regulation Mean to Me? Enforcement of the state regulation before and after it is incorporated into the Federally-approved SIP is primarily a state responsibility. However, after the regulation is Federally approved, we are authorized to take enforcement action against violators. Citizens are also offered legal recourse to address violations as described in section 304 of the CAA. What Is Being Addressed in This Document? We are taking final action to approve the Missouri Department of Natural Resources’ (MDNR) request to include, as a revision to Missouri’s ozone SIP, an amendment to rule 10 CSR 10–6.350, ‘‘Emissions Limitations and Emissions Trading of Oxides of Nitrogen’’ (known hereafter as ‘‘statewide NOX rule’’), which was incorporated into the SIP on E:\FR\FM\13JYR1.SGM 13JYR1 40194 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 133 / Wednesday, July 13, 2005 / Rules and Regulations December 28, 2000 (65 FR 82285). The Missouri Air Conservation Commission adopted the amended rule on April 24, 2003. The rule became effective under state law on June 23, 2003. The rule was submitted to EPA on September 18, 2003 and included the comments on the rule during the state’s adoption process, and the state’s response to comments, and other information necessary to meet EPA’s completeness criteria. EPA proposed to approve the revision of this rule as an amendment to the Missouri SIP in the Federal Register on March 31, 2005 (70 FR 16472). The comment period closed on May 2, 2005. No comments were received. We are taking final action to approve the rule amendment as a revision to the current SIP approved statewide NOX rule for the state of Missouri. How Does the Statewide NOX Rule Relate to the NOX SIP Call? As stated previously, the statewide NOX rule is designed to achieve emissions reductions to improve air quality in the St. Louis area. Missouri is also subject to a requirement to achieve certain NOX reductions to eliminate its significant contribution to ozone nonattainment problems in other areas, relating to NOX emissions transported from Missouri to other states. (See, 69 FR 21604, April 21, 2004.) Therefore, separate from today’s rulemaking, Missouri is in the process of adopting the requirements of the NOX SIP Call and today’s action does not relieve the state of this obligation. Have the Requirements for Approval of a SIP Revision Been Met? The state submittal has met the public notice requirements for SIP submissions in accordance with 40 CFR 51.102. The submittal also satisfied the completeness criteria of 40 CFR part 51, appendix V. In addition, as explained above and in more detail in the technical support document that is part of this document and in the March 31, 2005, proposal, the revision meets the substantive SIP requirements of the CAA, including section 110 and implementing regulations. What Action Is EPA Taking? EPA is approving the rule amendment as a revision to the current SIPapproved statewide NOX rule for the state of Missouri. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993), this action is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ and therefore is not subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget. For VerDate jul<14>2003 15:05 Jul 12, 2005 Jkt 205001 this reason, this action is also not subject to Executive Order 13211, ‘‘Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use’’ (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001). This action merely approves state law as meeting Federal requirements and imposes no additional requirements beyond those imposed by state law. Accordingly, the Administrator certifies that this 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 approves 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 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 approves a state rule implementing a Federal standard, and does not alter the relationship or the distribution of power and responsibilities established in the CAA. This 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 CAA. 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 CAA. Thus, the requirements of section 12(d) of the National PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) do not apply. This 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.). The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as added by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of the rule in the Federal Register. A major rule cannot take effect until 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register. This action is not a ‘‘major rule’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2). Under section 307(b)(1) of the CAA, petitions for judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by September 12, 2005. Filing a petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule does not affect the finality of this rule for the purposes of judicial review nor does it extend the time within which a petition for judicial review may be filed, and shall not postpone the effectiveness of such rule or action. This action may not be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2).)

Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; State of 
Missouri

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: EPA is announcing the approval of an amendment to the 
statewide NOX rule for the state of Missouri. The purpose of 
this rule is to reduce the state's contribution to the St. Louis 8-hour 
ozone nonattainment area. Consequently, the reductions in 
NOX emissions will also help to reduce the amount of PM2.5 
precursors in the area. This action is necessary to complete the 
process of incorporating the amended rule into Missouri's ozone SIP.

DATES: This rule is effective on August 12, 2005.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Michael Jay at (913) 551-7460 or by e-
mail at jay.michael@epa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document whenever ``we'', 
``us'', or ``our'' is used, we mean EPA. This section provides 
additional information by addressing the following questions:

    What is a SIP?
    What is the Federal approval process for a SIP?
    What does Federal approval of a state regulation mean to me?
    What is being addressed in this document?
    How does the statewide NOX rule relate to the 
NOX SIP call?
    Have the requirements for approval of a SIP revision been met?
    What action is EPA taking?

What Is a SIP?

    Section 110 of the Clean Air Act (CAA) requires states to develop 
air pollution regulations and control strategies to ensure that state 
air quality meets the national ambient air quality standards 
established by EPA. These ambient standards are established under 
section 109 of the CAA, and they currently address six criteria 
pollutants. These pollutants are: Carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, 
ozone, lead, particulate matter, and sulfur dioxide.
    Each state must submit these regulations and control strategies to 
us for approval and incorporation into the Federally-enforceable SIP.
    Each Federally-approved SIP protects air quality primarily by 
addressing air pollution at its point of origin. These SIPs can be 
extensive, containing state regulations or other enforceable documents 
and supporting information such as emission inventories, monitoring 
networks, and modeling demonstrations.

What Is the Federal Approval Process for a SIP?

    In order for state regulations to be incorporated into the 
Federally-enforceable SIP, states must formally adopt the regulations 
and control strategies consistent with state and Federal requirements. 
This process generally includes a public notice, public hearing, public 
comment period, and a formal adoption by a state-authorized rulemaking 
body.
    Once a state rule, regulation, or control strategy is adopted, the 
state submits it to us for inclusion into the SIP. We must provide 
public notice and seek additional public comment regarding the proposed 
Federal action on the state submission. If adverse comments are 
received, they must be addressed prior to any final Federal action by 
us.
    All state regulations and supporting information approved by EPA 
under section 110 of the CAA are incorporated into the Federally-
approved SIP. Records of such SIP actions are maintained in the Code of 
Federal Regulations (CFR) at title 40, part 52, entitled ``Approval and 
Promulgation of Implementation Plans.'' The actual state regulations 
which are approved are not reproduced in their entirety in the CFR 
outright but are ``incorporated by reference,'' which means that we 
have approved a given state regulation with a specific effective date.

What Does Federal Approval of a State Regulation Mean to Me?

    Enforcement of the state regulation before and after it is 
incorporated into the Federally-approved SIP is primarily a state 
responsibility. However, after the regulation is Federally approved, we 
are authorized to take enforcement action against violators. Citizens 
are also offered legal recourse to address violations as described in 
section 304 of the CAA.

What Is Being Addressed in This Document?

    We are taking final action to approve the Missouri Department of 
Natural Resources' (MDNR) request to include, as a revision to 
Missouri's ozone SIP, an amendment to rule 10 CSR 10-6.350, ``Emissions 
Limitations and Emissions Trading of Oxides of Nitrogen'' (known 
hereafter as ``statewide NOX rule''), which was incorporated 
into the SIP on

[[Page 40194]]

December 28, 2000 (65 FR 82285). The Missouri Air Conservation 
Commission adopted the amended rule on April 24, 2003. The rule became 
effective under state law on June 23, 2003. The rule was submitted to 
EPA on September 18, 2003 and included the comments on the rule during 
the state's adoption process, and the state's response to comments, and 
other information necessary to meet EPA's completeness criteria.
    EPA proposed to approve the revision of this rule as an amendment 
to the Missouri SIP in the Federal Register on March 31, 2005 (70 FR 
16472). The comment period closed on May 2, 2005. No comments were 
received. We are taking final action to approve the rule amendment as a 
revision to the current SIP approved statewide NOX rule for 
the state of Missouri.

How Does the Statewide NOX Rule Relate to the NOX 
SIP Call?

    As stated previously, the statewide NOX rule is designed 
to achieve emissions reductions to improve air quality in the St. Louis 
area. Missouri is also subject to a requirement to achieve certain 
NOX reductions to eliminate its significant contribution to 
ozone nonattainment problems in other areas, relating to NOX 
emissions transported from Missouri to other states. (See, 69 FR 21604, 
April 21, 2004.) Therefore, separate from today's rulemaking, Missouri 
is in the process of adopting the requirements of the NOX 
SIP Call and today's action does not relieve the state of this 
obligation.

Have the Requirements for Approval of a SIP Revision Been Met?

    The state submittal has met the public notice requirements for SIP 
submissions in accordance with 40 CFR 51.102. The submittal also 
satisfied the completeness criteria of 40 CFR part 51, appendix V. In 
addition, as explained above and in more detail in the technical 
support document that is part of this document and in the March 31, 
2005, proposal, the revision meets the substantive SIP requirements of 
the CAA, including section 110 and implementing regulations.

What Action Is EPA Taking?

    EPA is approving the rule amendment as a revision to the current 
SIP-approved statewide NOX rule for the state of Missouri.

Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993), this 
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, Distribution, or Use'' (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001). This action 
merely approves state law as meeting Federal requirements and imposes 
no additional requirements beyond those imposed by state law. 
Accordingly, the Administrator certifies that this 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 approves 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 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 approves a state rule 
implementing a Federal standard, and does not alter the relationship or 
the distribution of power and responsibilities established in the CAA. 
This 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 CAA. 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 CAA. 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 apply. This 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.).
    The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as added by the 
Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, generally 
provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating 
the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, 
to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the 
United States. EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other 
required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of 
Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior 
to publication of the rule in the Federal Register. A major rule cannot 
take effect until 60 days after it is published in the Federal 
Register. This action is not a ``major rule'' as defined by 5 U.S.C. 
804(2).
    Under section 307(b)(1) of the CAA, petitions for judicial review 
of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for 
the appropriate circuit by September 12, 2005. Filing a petition for 
reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule does not affect 
the finality of this rule for the purposes of judicial review nor does 
it extend the time within which a petition for judicial review may be
