ACTION: Final rule. ycherry on PROD1PC64 with RULES AGENCY: SUMMARY: EPA is approving a State Implementation Plan (SIP) submission by the state of Iowa which revises the air quality rules to include portions of the Federal New Source Review (NSR) regulations promulgated by EPA in December 2002. These revisions do not include the portion of the rules for nonattainment areas as there are currently no nonattainment areas in the state of Iowa. The definitions and applicability portions of the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) program were written into the state rules while the remaining portions of the PSD program were adopted by reference. All references to clean units and pollution control projects are not adopted by reference. Iowa has also not adopted portions of the Federal rule relating to exceptions from recordkeeping requirements. DATES: This rule is effective on June 13, 2007. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:35 May 11, 2007 Jkt 211001 EPA has established a docket for this action under Docket ID No. EPA–R07–OAR–2007–0015.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Heather Hamilton at (913) 551–7039, or by e-mail at hamilton.heather@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: ADDRESSES: 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 the background for this action? What is being addressed in this document? 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 PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 final 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 Clean Air Act (CAA or Act) 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 the background of this action? The 2002 NSR Reform rules are part of EPA’s implementation of parts C and D of title I of the CAA, 42 U.S.C. 7470– 7515. Part C of title I of the CAA, 42 U.S.C. 7470–7492, is the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) program, which applies in areas that meet the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS), also known as ‘‘attainment areas’’ and in areas for which there is insufficient information to determine whether the area meets the NAAQS, also known as ‘‘unclassifiable’’ areas.
