ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: EPA is taking final action to approve a revision to the Mississippi State Implementation Plan (SIP) submitted on January 16, 2007. This revision addresses the requirements of EPA’s Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) promulgated on May 12, 2005, and subsequently revised on April 28, 2006, and December 13, 2006. EPA has determined that the SIP revision fully implements the CAIR requirements for Mississippi. As a result of this action, EPA will also withdraw, through a separate rulemaking, the CAIR Federal Implementation Plans (FIPs) concerning sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 (NOX) annual, and NOX ozone season emissions for Mississippi. The CAIR FIPs for all States in the CAIR region were promulgated on April 28, 2006, and subsequently revised on December 13, 2006. CAIR requires States to reduce emissions of SO2 and NOX that significantly contribute to, and interfere with maintenance of, the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for fine particulates (PM2.5) and/or ozone in any downwind state. CAIR establishes State budgets for SO2 and NOX and requires States to submit SIP revisions that implement these budgets in States that EPA concluded did contribute to nonattainment in downwind states. States have the flexibility to choose which control measures to adopt to achieve the budgets, including participating in the EPA-administered cap-and-trade programs. In the SIP revision that EPA is approving today, Mississippi has met the CAIR requirements by electing to participate in the EPA-administered cap-and-trade programs addressing SO2, NOX annual, and NOX ozone season emissions for Mississippi. DATES: This rule is effective on November 2, 2007. ADDRESSES: EPA has established a docket for this action under Docket ID No. EPA–R04–OAR–2007–0167.
