In addition to being available in the docket, an electronic copy of today’s proposal will also be available through the WWW. Following the Administrator’s signature, a copy of this action will be posted on EPA’s Technology Transfer Network (TTN) policy and guidance page for newly proposed or promulgated rules at http://www.epa.gov/ttn/oarpg/. The TTN at EPA’s Web site provides information and technology exchange in various areas of air pollution control. Direct Final Rule. A direct final rule identical to this proposal is published in the Rules and Regulations section of today’s Federal Register. For further supplementary information, the detailed rationale for the proposal and the regulatory revisions, see the direct final rule. We are taking direct final action because we view the amendments as noncontroversial and anticipate no adverse comments. We have explained our reasons for the amendments in the preamble to the direct final rule. If we receive no material adverse comments, we will take no further action on the proposed rule. If we receive material adverse comments, we will withdraw only the amendments, sections, or paragraphs of the direct final rule on which we received material adverse comments. We will publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register indicating which will become effective and which are being withdrawn. If part or all of the direct final rule in the Rules and Regulations section of today’s VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:42 Dec 21, 2006 Jkt 211001 Federal Register is withdrawn, all comments pertaining to those provisions will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on the proposed rule. We will not institute a second comment period on today’s proposed rule. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this time. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews For a complete discussion of all of the administrative requirements applicable to this action, see the direct final rule in the Rules and Regulations section of today’s Federal Register. Regulatory Flexibility Act The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) generally requires an agency to prepare a regulatory flexibility analysis of any rule subject to notice and comment rulemaking requirements under the Administrative Procedure Act or any other statute unless the agency certifies that the rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Small entities include small businesses, small organizations, and small governmental jurisdictions. For purposes of assessing the impact of today’s proposed rule amendments on small entities, a small entity is defined as: (1) A small business according to Small Business Administration size standards for companies identified by NAICS codes 336111 (automobile manufacturing) and 336112 (light truck and utility vehicle manufacturing) with 1,000 or fewer employees; (2) a small governmental jurisdiction that is a government or a city, county, town, school district or special district with a population of less than 50,000; and (3) a small organization that is any not-for-profit enterprise which is independently owned and operated and is not dominant in its field. Based on the above definition, there are no small entities presently engaged in automobile and light-duty truck surface coating. After considering the economic impacts of today’s proposed rule amendments on small entities, I certify that this action will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This is based on the observation that the final rule affects no small entities since none are engaged in the surface coating of automobiles and light-duty trucks. We continue to be interested in the potential impacts of the proposed rule amendments on small entities and welcome comments on issues related to such impacts.
