ACTION: Direct final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: EPA is approving two revisions to the Georgia State Implementation Plan (SIP), submitted by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (GA DNR), through the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (GA EPD), on July 25, 2006, and January 25, 2007. The revisions include modifications to Georgia’s Air Quality Rules found at Chapter 391–3– 20, pertaining to rules for Enhanced Inspection and Maintenance (I/M). Enhanced I/M was required for 1-hour nonattainment areas classified as serious and above, under the CAA as amended in 1990.

Analysis of the State’s Submittal III. Final Action IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews I. EPA’s Action EPA is approving two SIP revisions submitted by the State of Georgia, through the GA EPD, on July 25, 2006, and January 25, 2007, pertaining to rules for I/M. These revisions became State effective on January 10, 2007. The proposed revisions in the July 25, 2006, submittal include changes made by the State of Georgia to its Air Quality Rules, found at Chapters 391–3–20–.01, .02, .03, .04, .05, .07, .08 , .09, .10, .11, .12, .13, .15, .16, .17(1), .17(2)(a)1, .17(2)(b), .17(e), .18, .19, .20, .21, and .22. The proposed revisions in the January 25, 2007, submittal include changes to Chapters 391–3–20–.01(m), and 391–3– 20–.17(2)(a)1. rmajette on PROD1PC67 with RULES II. Analysis of the State’s Submittal July 25, 2006 Submittal Rule 391–3–20, Inspection and Maintenance, is being revised for the purpose of removing outdated requirements, updating portions for consistency with the CAA, enhancing enforcement capabilities, and performing overall housekeeping edits associated with such an extensive rule revision. Additionally, clarifying language is being added to the rule, which includes clarification of applicability and of inspector qualifications, the establishment of common terms, and the removal of outdated language. Finally, the ‘‘Waivers’’ section of this rule, is being revised to make the annual adjustment of the repair waiver limit using the consumer price index data as published by the Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics. For the test year 2006, the VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:15 May 23, 2007 Jkt 211001 waiver limit shall be $710.00 of qualifying repairs. January 25, 2007 Submittal Rule 391–3–20–.01 ‘‘Definitions,’’ is being revised for the purpose of incorporating the most recent version of the GA DNR motor vehicle emission I/M policy (‘‘Enforcement Policy’’), dated July 28, 2006. Additionally, the ‘‘Waivers’’ section of this rule (391–3– 20–.17((2)(a)1), is being revised to make the annual adjustment of the repair waiver limit using the consumer price index data as published by the Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics. For the test year 2007, the waiver limit shall be $738.00 of qualifying repairs. For vehicles which otherwise qualify for waivers during the 2006 test year, the waiver limit shall be $710.00 of qualifying repairs. III. Final Action EPA is taking direct final action to approve the aforementioned revisions, specifically, Chapters 391–3–20–.01, .02, .03, .04, .05, .07, .08 , .09, .10, .11, .12, .13, .15, .16, .17(1), .17(2)(a)1, .17(2)(b), .17(e), .18, .19, .20, .21, and .22 into the Georgia SIP. These revisions were submitted by GA EPD on July 25, 2006, and January 25, 2007. EPA is publishing this rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial submittal and anticipates no adverse comments. However, in the proposed rules section of this Federal Register publication, EPA is publishing a separate document that will serve as the proposal to approve the SIP revision should adverse comments be filed. This rule will be effective July 23, 2007 without further notice unless the Agency receives adverse comments by June 25, 2007. If EPA receives such comments, EPA will then publish a document withdrawing the direct final rule and informing the public that such rule will not take effect. All public comments received will then be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on the proposed rule. EPA will not institute a second comment period. Parties interested in commenting should do so at this time. If no such comments are received, the public is advised that this rule will be effective on July 23, 2007 and no further action will be taken on the proposed rule. Please note that if we receive adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the rule, we may adopt as final those provisions of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment. PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 IV. 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 E:\FR\FM\24MYR1.SGM 24MYR1 29077 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 100 / Thursday, May 24, 2007 / Rules and Regulations 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, 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 23, 2007. 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).)

Thus, it is imperative for the Department to develop approaches which permit oversight of M&O contractor expenditures in order for the Department to satisfy its oversight responsibility and to ensure that DOE funds are expended on allowable costs. The creation and maintenance of rigorous business, financial, and accounting systems by contractors are crucial to assuring the integrity and reliability of the cost data used by the DOE’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO), the Inspector General (IG), and contracting officers (COs). To ensure the reliability of these systems, DOE requires some of its contractors to maintain an internal E:\FR\FM\24MYR1.SGM 24MYR1

IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

I. EPA's Action

    EPA is approving two SIP revisions submitted by the State of 
Georgia, through the GA EPD, on July 25, 2006, and January 25, 2007, 
pertaining to rules for I/M. These revisions became State effective on 
January 10, 2007. The proposed revisions in the July 25, 2006, 
submittal include changes made by the State of Georgia to its Air 
Quality Rules, found at Chapters 391-3-20-.01, .02, .03, .04, .05, .07, 
.08 , .09, .10, .11, .12, .13, .15, .16, .17(1), .17(2)(a)1, .17(2)(b), 
.17(e), .18, .19, .20, .21, and .22. The proposed revisions in the 
January 25, 2007, submittal include changes to Chapters 391-3-
20-.01(m), and 391-3-20-.17(2)(a)1.

II. Analysis of the State's Submittal

July 25, 2006 Submittal

    Rule 391-3-20, Inspection and Maintenance, is being revised for the 
purpose of removing outdated requirements, updating portions for 
consistency with the CAA, enhancing enforcement capabilities, and 
performing overall housekeeping edits associated with such an extensive 
rule revision. Additionally, clarifying language is being added to the 
rule, which includes clarification of applicability and of inspector 
qualifications, the establishment of common terms, and the removal of 
outdated language. Finally, the ``Waivers'' section of this rule, is 
being revised to make the annual adjustment of the repair waiver limit 
using the consumer price index data as published by the Federal Bureau 
of Labor Statistics. For the test year 2006, the waiver limit shall be 
$710.00 of qualifying repairs.

January 25, 2007 Submittal

    Rule 391-3-20-.01 ``Definitions,'' is being revised for the purpose 
of incorporating the most recent version of the GA DNR motor vehicle 
emission I/M policy (``Enforcement Policy''), dated July 28, 2006. 
Additionally, the ``Waivers'' section of this rule (391-3-
20-.17((2)(a)1), is being revised to make the annual adjustment of the 
repair waiver limit using the consumer price index data as published by 
the Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics. For the test year 2007, the 
waiver limit shall be $738.00 of qualifying repairs. For vehicles which 
otherwise qualify for waivers during the 2006 test year, the waiver 
limit shall be $710.00 of qualifying repairs.

III. Final Action

    EPA is taking direct final action to approve the aforementioned 
revisions, specifically, Chapters 391-3-20-.01, .02, .03, .04, .05, 
.07, .08 , .09, .10, .11, .12, .13, .15, .16, .17(1), .17(2)(a)1, 
.17(2)(b), .17(e), .18, .19, .20, .21, and .22 into the Georgia SIP. 
These revisions were submitted by GA EPD on July 25, 2006, and January 
25, 2007.
    EPA is publishing this rule without prior proposal because the 
Agency views this as a noncontroversial submittal and anticipates no 
adverse comments. However, in the proposed rules section of this 
Federal Register publication, EPA is publishing a separate document 
that will serve as the proposal to approve the SIP revision should 
adverse comments be filed. This rule will be effective July 23, 2007 
without further notice unless the Agency receives adverse comments by 
June 25, 2007.
    If EPA receives such comments, EPA will then publish a document 
withdrawing the direct final rule and informing the public that such 
rule will not take effect. All public comments received will then be 
addressed in a subsequent final rule based on the proposed rule. EPA 
will not institute a second comment period. Parties interested in 
commenting should do so at this time. If no such comments are received, 
the public is advised that this rule will be effective on July 23, 2007 
and no further action will be taken on the proposed rule. Please note 
that if we receive adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or 
section of this rule and if that provision may be severed from the 
remainder of the rule, we may adopt as final those provisions of the 
rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment.

IV. 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

[[Page 29077]]

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, 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 23, 2007. 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).)
