SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document whenever ‘‘we,’’ ‘‘us,’’ or ‘‘our’’ is used, we mean EPA. Organization of this document. The following outline is provided to aid in locating information in this preamble. I. Background and Purpose II. Final Action III. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews I. Background and Purpose On September 6, 2007 (72 FR 51204) EPA published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPR) for the Mohegan Tribe of Indians of Connecticut. The NPR proposed approval of the Mohegan Tribal Implementation Plan (TIP) consisting of a tribal ordinance, entitled ‘‘Area Wide NOX Emissions Limitation Regulation,’’ that establishes a limit on nitrogen oxide (NOX) emissions from stationary sources owned by the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority and located within the external boundaries of the Mohegan Reservation. The formal TIP was submitted by Mohegan Tribe of Indians of Connecticut on May 4, 2005 and amended on August 22, 2007. PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Other specific requirements of the Tribal Implementation Plan and the rationale for EPA’s proposed action are explained in the NPR and will not be restated here. No public comments were received on the NPR. II. Final Action EPA is approving the Mohegan Tribal Implementation Plan that was submitted by the Mohegan Tribe of Indians of Connecticut on May 4, 2005, and amended on August 22, 2007 for limiting NOX emissions from stationary sources owned by the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority to 49 TPY. 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 tribal law as meeting Federal requirements and imposes no additional requirements beyond those imposed by tribal 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 tribal law and does not impose any additional enforceable duty beyond that required by tribal 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). Since this rule simply approves preexisting tribal law, it does not result in any direct costs or preemption of tribal law as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000). Nonetheless, EPA has consulted extensively with the Mohegan Tribe concerning this proposed TIP approval. 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), because it merely approves a tribal rule implementing a federal standard within the exterior boundaries of the Tribe’s reservation, E:\FR\FM\14NOR1.SGM 14NOR1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 219 / Wednesday, November 14, 2007 / Rules and Regulations 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 approves a tribal rule implementing a Federal standard. In reviewing TIP submissions, EPA’s role is to approve tribal 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 Tribe to use voluntary consensus standards (VCS), EPA has no authority to disapprove a TIP submission for failure to use VCS. It would thus be inconsistent with applicable law for EPA, when it reviews a TIP submission, to use VCS in place of a TIP 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 action 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 January 14, 2008. 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).)

Background On September 11, 2007 (72 FR 51747), EPA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPR) for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The NPR proposed approval of Pennsylvania’s redesignation request, a PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 SIP revision that establishes a maintenance plan for the State College Area that provides for continued attainment of the 8-hour ozone NAAQS for at least 10 years after redesignation, and a 2002 base year emissions inventory. The formal SIP revisions were submitted by PADEP on June 12, 2007. Other specific requirements of Pennsylvania’s redesignation request SIP revision for the maintenance plan and the rationales for EPA’s proposed actions are explained in the NPR and will not be restated here. No public comments were received on the NPR. However, on December 22, 2006, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit vacated EPA’s Phase 1 Implementation Rule for the 8-hour Ozone Standard. (69 FR 23591, April 30, 2004). South Coast Air Quality Management Dist. v. EPA, 472 F.3d 882 (D.C. Cir. 2006). On June 8, 2007, in South Coast Air Quality Management Dist. v. EPA, Docket No. 04–1201, in response to several petitions for rehearing, the D.C. Circuit clarified that the Phase 1 Rule was vacated only with regard to those parts of the rule that had been successfully challenged. Therefore, the Phase 1 Rule provisions related to classifications for areas currently classified under subpart 2 of Title I, part D of the Act as 8-hour nonattainment areas, the 8-hour attainment dates and the timing for emissions reductions needed for attainment of the 8-hour ozone NAAQS remain effective. The June 8 decision left intact the Court’s rejection of EPA’s reasons for implementing the 8-hour standard in certain nonattainment areas under subpart 1 in lieu of subpart 2. By limiting the vacatur, the Court let stand EPA’s revocation of the 1-hour standard and those anti-backsliding provisions of the Phase 1 Rule that had not been successfully challenged. The June 8 decision reaffirmed the December 22, 2006 decision that EPA had improperly failed to retain measures required for 1- E:\FR\FM\14NOR1.SGM 14NOR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document whenever ``we,''

    Organization of this document. The following outline is provided to 
aid in locating information in this preamble.

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

I. Background and Purpose

    On September 6, 2007 (72 FR 51204) EPA published a Notice of 
Proposed Rulemaking (NPR) for the Mohegan Tribe of Indians of 
Connecticut.
    The NPR proposed approval of the Mohegan Tribal Implementation Plan 
(TIP) consisting of a tribal ordinance, entitled ``Area Wide 
NOX Emissions Limitation Regulation,'' that establishes a 
limit on nitrogen oxide (NOX) emissions from stationary 
sources owned by the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority and located within 
the external boundaries of the Mohegan Reservation. The formal TIP was 
submitted by Mohegan Tribe of Indians of Connecticut on May 4, 2005 and 
amended on August 22, 2007.
    Other specific requirements of the Tribal Implementation Plan and 
the rationale for EPA's proposed action are explained in the NPR and 
will not be restated here. No public comments were received on the NPR.

II. Final Action

    EPA is approving the Mohegan Tribal Implementation Plan that was 
submitted by the Mohegan Tribe of Indians of Connecticut on May 4, 
2005, and amended on August 22, 2007 for limiting NOX 
emissions from stationary sources owned by the Mohegan Tribal Gaming 
Authority to 49 TPY.

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 tribal law as meeting Federal requirements and imposes 
no additional requirements beyond those imposed by tribal 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 tribal law and does 
not impose any additional enforceable duty beyond that required by 
tribal 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).
    Since this rule simply approves pre-existing tribal law, it does 
not result in any direct costs or preemption of tribal law as specified 
by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000). Nonetheless, 
EPA has consulted extensively with the Mohegan Tribe concerning this 
proposed TIP approval. 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), because it merely approves a tribal rule 
implementing a federal standard within the exterior boundaries of the 
Tribe's reservation,

[[Page 63989]]

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 approves a tribal rule implementing a Federal 
standard.
    In reviewing TIP submissions, EPA's role is to approve tribal 
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 
Tribe to use voluntary consensus standards (VCS), EPA has no authority 
to disapprove a TIP submission for failure to use VCS. It would thus be 
inconsistent with applicable law for EPA, when it reviews a TIP 
submission, to use VCS in place of a TIP 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 action 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 January 14, 2008. 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).)
