BILLING CODE 6560–50–P ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY [FRL–8257–2] California State Nonroad Engine and Vehicle Pollution Control Standards; Decision of the Administrator Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). ACTION: Notice regarding authorization of California small off-road engine emission standards. AGENCY: SUMMARY: EPA today, pursuant to section 209(e) of the Clean Air Act (Act), 42 U.S.C. 7543(e), is granting California its request for an authorization of its small off-road engine emission standards for 2007 and subsequent model years (SORE). By letter dated April 11, 2005, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) requested that EPA grant California an authorization (sometimes referred to as a waiver of federal preemption) for its SORE regulations which set forth amended exhaust emission standards and new evaporative emission standards and associated test procedures for Class I and Class II small off-road engines for 2007 and subsequent model years. ADDRESSES: The Agency’s Decision Document, containing an explanation of the Assistant Administrator’s decision, as well as all documents relied upon in making that decision, including those submitted to EPA by CARB, are available at EPA’s Air and Radiation Docket and Information Center (Air Docket). Materials relevant to this decision are contained in Docket No. PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 EPA–HQ–OAR–2005–0133. The docket is located at The Air Docket, Room 3334, 1301 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20460, and may be viewed between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The telephone is (202) 566–1742. A reasonable fee may be charged by EPA for copying docket material. Additionally, an electronic version of the public docket is available through the Federal government’s electronic public docket and comment system. You may access EPA dockets at http:// www.regulations.gov. After opening the www.regulations.gov Web site, select ‘‘Environmental Protection Agency’’ from the pull-down Agency list, then scroll to ‘‘Keyword or ID’’ and enter EPA–HQ–OAR–2004–0133 to view documents in the record of the SORE authorization request. Although a part of the official docket, the public docket does not include Confidential Business Information (CBI) or other information whose disclosure is restricted by statute. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: David Dickinson, Compliance and Innovative Strategies Division, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Ariel Rios Building (6405J), 1200 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20460. Telephone: (202) 343–09256. E-Mail Address: Dickinson.David@EPA.GOV. I have decided to grant California an authorization pursuant to section 209(e) of the Act for the SORE regulations.1 As explained in the Decision Document supporting today’s decision, I have decided to grant a full authorization for all of the SORE regulation despite CARB’s request that some portions be considered within the scope of previous authorization determinations. As also explained in the Decision Document, EPA received a series of comments supporting CARB’s request for an authorization and received comments from one commenter that conditionally supported the authorization and raised other concerns but did not represent that such other concerns should be the basis for denying or delaying the authorization. For the reasons set forth below and further discussed in the Decision Document, EPA is granting CARB’s request for authorization for its SORE regulations. Section 209(e)(1) of the Act addresses the permanent preemption of any State, or political subdivision thereof, from adopting or attempting to enforce any standard or other requirement relating SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 1 The CARB Board approved the SORE regulations by Resolution 03–24.
