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 111(d) Plan? What are the regulatory requirements for OSWI units? Why is this action necessary? What action are we taking in this document? What is a 111(d) Plan? Section 111(d) of the CAA requires states to submit plans to control certain pollutants (designated pollutants) at existing facilities (designated facilities) whenever standards of performance have been established under section 111(b) for new sources of the same type, and EPA has established emission guidelines for such existing sources for certain designated pollutants. E:\FR\FM\08MYR1.SGM 08MYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 88 / Tuesday, May 8, 2007 / Rules and Regulations What are the regulatory requirements for OSWI units? On December 16, 2005 (70 FR 74870), EPA finalized the section 111(d) emission guidelines for existing OSWI units. The emission guidelines are codified at 40 CFR part 60, subpart EEEE. Subpart B of 40 CFR part 60 establishes procedures to be followed and requirements to be met in the development and submission of state plans for controlling designated pollutants. Part 62 of the CFR provides the procedural framework for the submission of these plans. When designated facilities are located in a state, a state must develop and submit a plan for the control of the designated pollutant. However, 40 CFR 62.06 provides that if there are no existing sources of the designated pollutant in the state, the state may submit a letter of certification to that effect, or negative declaration, in lieu of a plan. The negative declaration exempts the state from the requirements of subpart B for that designated pollutant. Why is this action necessary? The states of Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri have determined there are no existing sources in their states subject to the OSWI emission guidelines. Consequently, each state has submitted a letter of negative declaration certifying this fact. We are announcing our approval of these negative declarations. If at a later date such sources are identified, they will be subject to a Federal plan until a state has an approved 111(d) plan. cprice-sewell on PROD1PC66 with RULES What action are we taking in this document? We are processing this action as a direct final action because we do not anticipate any adverse comments. Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision is 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. 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 negative declarations as meeting VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:51 May 07, 2007 Jkt 211001 Federal requirements and imposes no additional requirements. 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 state negative declarations and does not impose any additional enforceable duty, 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 state negative declarations relating to 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 merely approves state negative declarations relating to a Federal standard. In reviewing state plan 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 state submissions for failure to use VCS. It would thus be inconsistent with applicable law for EPA, when it reviews state submissions, to use VCS in place of state submissions that otherwise satisfy 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 PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 25979 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 July 9, 2007. Filing a petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this direct 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).)

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Throughout this document, ‘‘we,’’ ‘‘us’’ and ‘‘our’’ refer to EPA. I. Background Section 112(l) of the Clean Air Act, as amended in 1990 (CAA), authorizes EPA to delegate to state or local air pollution control agencies the authority to implement and enforce the standards set out in the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 40 (40 CFR), Part 63, National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Source Categories. On November 26, 1993, EPA promulgated regulations, codified at 40 CFR Part 63, Subpart E (hereinafter referred to as ‘‘Subpart E’’), establishing procedures for EPA’s approval of state rules or programs under section 112(l) (see 58 FR 62262). Subpart E was later amended on September 14, 2000 (see 65 FR 55810). Any request for approval under CAA section 112(l) must meet the approval criteria in 112(l)(5) and Subpart E. To streamline the approval process for future applications, a State or local agency may submit a one-time demonstration that it has adequate authorities and resources to implement and enforce any CAA section 112 standards. If such demonstration is approved, then the state or local agency would no longer need to resubmit a demonstration of these same authorities and resources for every subsequent request for delegation of CAA section 112 standards. However, EPA maintains the authority to withdraw its approval if the State does not adequately implement or enforce an approved rule or program. B. ADEQ Delegations On July 17, 1998, EPA published a direct final action delegating to the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) several NESHAP and approving ADEQ’s delegation mechanism for future standards (see 63 FR 38478). That action explained the procedure for EPA to grant future delegations to ADEQ by letter, with periodic Federal Register listings of standards that have been delegated. On February 21, 2007, ADEQ requested delegation of the following NESHAP contained in 40 CFR Part 63: E:\FR\FM\08MYR1.SGM 08MYR1

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 111(d) Plan?
    What are the regulatory requirements for OSWI units?
    Why is this action necessary?
    What action are we taking in this document?

What is a 111(d) Plan?

    Section 111(d) of the CAA requires states to submit plans to 
control certain pollutants (designated pollutants) at existing 
facilities (designated facilities) whenever standards of performance 
have been established under section 111(b) for new sources of the same 
type, and EPA has established emission guidelines for such existing 
sources for certain designated pollutants.

[[Page 25979]]

What are the regulatory requirements for OSWI units?

    On December 16, 2005 (70 FR 74870), EPA finalized the section 
111(d) emission guidelines for existing OSWI units. The emission 
guidelines are codified at 40 CFR part 60, subpart EEEE.
    Subpart B of 40 CFR part 60 establishes procedures to be followed 
and requirements to be met in the development and submission of state 
plans for controlling designated pollutants. Part 62 of the CFR 
provides the procedural framework for the submission of these plans. 
When designated facilities are located in a state, a state must develop 
and submit a plan for the control of the designated pollutant. However, 
40 CFR 62.06 provides that if there are no existing sources of the 
designated pollutant in the state, the state may submit a letter of 
certification to that effect, or negative declaration, in lieu of a 
plan. The negative declaration exempts the state from the requirements 
of subpart B for that designated pollutant.

Why is this action necessary?

    The states of Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri have determined there are 
no existing sources in their states subject to the OSWI emission 
guidelines. Consequently, each state has submitted a letter of negative 
declaration certifying this fact. We are announcing our approval of 
these negative declarations. If at a later date such sources are 
identified, they will be subject to a Federal plan until a state has an 
approved 111(d) plan.

What action are we taking in this document?

    We are processing this action as a direct final action because we 
do not anticipate any adverse comments. Please note that if EPA 
receives adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this 
rule and if that provision is 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.

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 negative declarations as meeting Federal 
requirements and imposes no additional requirements. 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 state negative declarations and does not impose any additional 
enforceable duty, 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 state negative 
declarations relating to 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 merely 
approves state negative declarations relating to a Federal standard.
    In reviewing state plan 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 state submissions for failure to use VCS. It would thus be 
inconsistent with applicable law for EPA, when it reviews state 
submissions, to use VCS in place of state submissions that otherwise 
satisfy 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 July 9, 2007. Filing a petition for 
reconsideration by the Administrator of this direct 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
