Table of Contents I. Background II. Final EPA Action III. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews I. Background Sections 111(d) and 129 of the Clean Air Act (CAA or the Act) require States to submit plans to control certain pollutants (designated pollutants) at existing solid waste combustor 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 (EG) for such existing sources. A designated pollutant is any pollutant for which no air quality criteria have been issued, and which is not included on a list published under section 108(a) or section 112(b)(1)(A) of the CAA, but emissions of which are subject to a standard of performance for new stationary sources. However, section 129 of the CAA also requires EPA to promulgate EG for solid waste incineration units that emit a mixture of air pollutants. These pollutants include organics (dioxins/furans), carbon monoxide, metals (cadmium, lead, mercury), acid gases (hydrogen chloride, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen oxides) and particulate matter (including opacity). E:\FR\FM\31OCR1.SGM 31OCR1 61534 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 210 / Wednesday, October 31, 2007 / Rules and Regulations On December 16, 2005, (70 FR 74870), EPA promulgated new source performance standards and EG for other solid waste incineration (OSWI) units, located at 40 CFR part 60, subparts EEEE and FFFF, respectively. The designated facility to which the EG apply is each existing OSWI unit, as defined in subpart FFFF, that commenced construction on or before December 9, 2004. 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. Also, 40 CFR part 62 provides the procedural framework for the submission of these plans. When designated facilities are located in a State, the State must then develop and submit a plan for the control of the designated pollutant. However, 40 CFR 60.23(b) and 62.06 provide 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 (i.e., negative declaration) in lieu of a plan. The negative declaration exempts the State from the requirements of subpart B for the submittal of a 111(d)/129 plan. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with RULES II. Final EPA Action The Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) has determined that there are no designated facilities subject to the OSWI unit EG requirements in its air pollution control jurisdiction. On December 19, 2006, NDEP submitted to EPA a negative declaration letter certifying this fact. EPA is amending 40 CFR part 62, subpart DD (Nevada) to reflect the receipt of this negative declaration letter. After publication of this Federal Register notice, if an OSWI facility is later found within the NDEP jurisdiction, then the overlooked facility will become subject to the requirements of the Federal OSWI 111(d)/129 plan, including the compliance schedule. The Federal plan would no longer apply if EPA were to subsequently receive and approve a 111(d)/129 plan from NDEP. EPA is publishing this action without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial amendment and anticipates no adverse comments. This action simply reflects already existing Federal requirements for State air pollution control agencies under 40 CFR parts 60 and 62. In the Proposed Rules section of this Federal Register publication, EPA is publishing a separate document that will serve as the proposal to approve NDEP’s VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:50 Oct 30, 2007 Jkt 214001 negative declaration should relevant adverse or critical comments be filed. This rule will be effective December 31, 2007 without further notice unless the Agency receives relevant adverse comments by November 30, 2007. If EPA receives such comments, then EPA will publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register to notify the public that the direct final approval will not take effect and we will address the comments in a subsequent final action based on the proposal. The EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this time. III. 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 a State determination 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 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 negative declaration in response to implementing a Federal PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 standard, and does not alter the relationship or the distribution of power and responsibilities established in the Clean Air Act. 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 a State negative declaration in response to implementing a Federal standard. In reviewing 111(d)/129 plan submissions, EPA’s role is to approve State choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the Clean Air Act. 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 a 111(d)/129 plan submission for failure to use VCS. It would thus be inconsistent with applicable law for EPA, when it reviews a 111(d)/129 plan submission, to use VCS in place of a 111(d)/129 plan submission that otherwise satisfies the provisions of the Clean Air Act. 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 rule is not a ‘‘major rule’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2). Under section 307(b)(1) of the Clean Air Act, petitions for judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by December 31, 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.

EPA is correcting the nomenclature document issued in the Federal Register on September 18, 2007 (72 FR 53134) (FRL–8126–5). Subsequent to publication of the September 18, 2007 Federal Register document, EPA learned that in the table of some 600 entries, several of the nomenclature changes had been included in a tolerance regulation that was issued in the Federal Register of September 12, 2007, (72 FR 52013), thus making inclusion of those entries unnecessary and confusing. Therefore, EPA is removing the duplicate nomenclature changes that appeared in the September 12, 2007 Federal Register tolerance rule from the September 18, 2007 tolerance nomenclature document. I.

I. Background
II. Final EPA Action
III. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

I. Background

    Sections 111(d) and 129 of the Clean Air Act (CAA or the Act) 
require States to submit plans to control certain pollutants 
(designated pollutants) at existing solid waste combustor 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 (EG) for such existing sources. 
A designated pollutant is any pollutant for which no air quality 
criteria have been issued, and which is not included on a list 
published under section 108(a) or section 112(b)(1)(A) of the CAA, but 
emissions of which are subject to a standard of performance for new 
stationary sources. However, section 129 of the CAA also requires EPA 
to promulgate EG for solid waste incineration units that emit a mixture 
of air pollutants. These pollutants include organics (dioxins/furans), 
carbon monoxide, metals (cadmium, lead, mercury), acid gases (hydrogen 
chloride, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen oxides) and particulate matter 
(including opacity).

[[Page 61534]]

    On December 16, 2005, (70 FR 74870), EPA promulgated new source 
performance standards and EG for other solid waste incineration (OSWI) 
units, located at 40 CFR part 60, subparts EEEE and FFFF, respectively. 
The designated facility to which the EG apply is each existing OSWI 
unit, as defined in subpart FFFF, that commenced construction on or 
before December 9, 2004.
    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. Also, 40 CFR part 62 
provides the procedural framework for the submission of these plans. 
When designated facilities are located in a State, the State must then 
develop and submit a plan for the control of the designated pollutant. 
However, 40 CFR 60.23(b) and 62.06 provide 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 (i.e., negative 
declaration) in lieu of a plan. The negative declaration exempts the 
State from the requirements of subpart B for the submittal of a 111(d)/
129 plan.

II. Final EPA Action

    The Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) has 
determined that there are no designated facilities subject to the OSWI 
unit EG requirements in its air pollution control jurisdiction. On 
December 19, 2006, NDEP submitted to EPA a negative declaration letter 
certifying this fact. EPA is amending 40 CFR part 62, subpart DD 
(Nevada) to reflect the receipt of this negative declaration letter.
    After publication of this Federal Register notice, if an OSWI 
facility is later found within the NDEP jurisdiction, then the 
overlooked facility will become subject to the requirements of the 
Federal OSWI 111(d)/129 plan, including the compliance schedule. The 
Federal plan would no longer apply if EPA were to subsequently receive 
and approve a 111(d)/129 plan from NDEP.
    EPA is publishing this action without prior proposal because the 
Agency views this as a noncontroversial amendment and anticipates no 
adverse comments. This action simply reflects already existing Federal 
requirements for State air pollution control agencies under 40 CFR 
parts 60 and 62. In the Proposed Rules section of this Federal Register 
publication, EPA is publishing a separate document that will serve as 
the proposal to approve NDEP's negative declaration should relevant 
adverse or critical comments be filed.
    This rule will be effective December 31, 2007 without further 
notice unless the Agency receives relevant adverse comments by November 
30, 2007. If EPA receives such comments, then EPA will publish a timely 
withdrawal in the Federal Register to notify the public that the direct 
final approval will not take effect and we will address the comments in 
a subsequent final action based on the proposal. The EPA will not 
institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties 
interested in commenting must do so at this time.

III. 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 a State determination 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 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 
negative declaration in response to implementing a Federal standard, 
and does not alter the relationship or the distribution of power and 
responsibilities established in the Clean Air Act. 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 a State negative declaration in 
response to implementing a Federal standard.
    In reviewing 111(d)/129 plan submissions, EPA's role is to approve 
State choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the Clean Air 
Act. 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 a 111(d)/129 plan submission for failure to use 
VCS. It would thus be inconsistent with applicable law for EPA, when it 
reviews a 111(d)/129 plan submission, to use VCS in place of a 111(d)/
129 plan submission that otherwise satisfies the provisions of the 
Clean Air Act. 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,
