This revision establishes budget trading programs for nitrogen oxides (NOX) annual, NOX ozone season, and sulfur dioxides (SO2) annual emissions to address the requirements of EPA’s Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR). Virginia will meet its CAIR requirements by participating in the EPA-administered regional cap-and-trade program for NOX annual, NOX ozone season, and SO2 annual emissions. EPA is determining that the SIP revision fully implements the CAIR requirements for Virginia. Therefore, as a consequence of the SIP approval, EPA will also withdraw the CAIR Federal Implementation Plan (FIP) that addresses NOX annual, NOX ozone season, and SO2 annual emissions in Virginia.

E:\FR\FM\28DER1.SGM 28DER1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 248 / Friday, December 28, 2007 / Rules and Regulations SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: pwalker on PROD1PC71 with RULES I. Background On March 30, 2007, and supplemented on April 30, 2007 and June 11, 2007, the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (VADEQ) submitted a CAIR SIP revision to meet the requirements of CAIR, which was promulgated on May 12, 2005 (70 FR 25162), and subsequently revised on April 28, 2006, and December 13, 2006. The SIP revision is comprised of new regulations under 9 VAC 5 Chapter 140 of the Virginia Code as follows: Part II— NOX Annual Trading Program; Part III— NOX Ozone Season Trading Program; and Part IV—SO2 Annual Trading Program. The regulations address all the requirements of the part 96 model rules set forth in the May 12, 2005 CAIR rulemaking. On September 25, 2007 (72 FR 54385), EPA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPR) to approve Virginia’s CAIR SIP revision. A detailed discussion of the CAIR requirements, Virginia’s CAIR submittal, and EPA’s rationale for approval of Virginia’s CAIR SIP revision may be found in the NPR and will not be repeated here. On October 24, 2007, EPA received adverse comments from the State of Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection. II. Public Comments and EPA Responses Comment: On October 24, 2007, the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection (CTDEP) submitted adverse comments on EPA’s proposed approval of Virginia’s CAIR SIP revision. CTDEP encourages EPA to approve state programs adopted to meet the emission reduction requirements of CAIR. However, it argues that before approving state CAIR plans, EPA should evaluate individually and in the aggregate each state’s clean air programs. They argue such evaluation is necessary to ensure that each state’s emissions do not significantly contribute to downwind nonattainment. CTDEP asserts its belief that the CAIR program does not ensure that the CAA section 110(a)(2)(D)(i) requirements to prohibit transported emissions that significantly contribute to nonattainment in Connecticut and other states will be met. CTDEP expresses concern that EPA is determining through this and other similar rulemakings that CAIR programs are sufficient to meet States’ section 110(a)(2)(D)(i) obligations. CTDEP asserts, based on EPA and State modeling for CAIR, that the levels of transported pollution remaining after VerDate Aug<31>2005 23:53 Dec 27, 2007 Jkt 214001 CAIR implementation are large enough that, even with local controls, it may be difficult for Connecticut to attain the 8hour ozone NAAQS by 2010. Finally, CTDEP questions EPA’s determination that highly cost effective controls are adequate to address States’ section 110(a)(2)(D)(i) obligations as compared to ‘‘reasonable cost’’ controls that could be achieved to effect more stringent NOX reductions. Response: EPA does not agree that it is appropriate or necessary for EPA to conduct additional analysis before approving Virginia’s CAIR SIP revision. In the CAIR rulemaking promulgated on May 12, 2005 (70 FR 25162), EPA established model rules for multi-State cap and trade programs for annual NOX, ozone season NOX, and annual SO2 that States may choose to adopt to meet the required emissions reductions in a flexible and cost-effective manner. EPA requires States that wish to participate in the EPA-administered cap and trade program to use the model rule (with only limited flexibility to modify specific provisions) to ensure that all participating sources, regardless of which State in the CAIR region they are located, are subject to the same trading and allowance holding requirements. Virginia has chosen to participate in the cap and trade program administered by EPA and has chosen to adopt the model rules with modifications allowed by flexibilities in the model rule. EPA has evaluated Virginia’s SIP revision and determined that Virginia is meeting its CAIR requirements. CTDEP does not challenge this determination. Thus, CTDEP’s comments do not specifically pertain to any aspect of EPA’s proposed action to approve the Virginia CAIR SIP revision. Rather, the comments appear to be directed broadly at EPA’s decisions with regard to States’ section 110(a)(2)(D)(i) obligations. These decisions were made by EPA in the context of the CAIR rulemaking, not in the proposed action to approve Virginia’s CAIR SIP revision. Therefore, CTDEP’s comments are not relevant to the proposed action. CTDEP had ample opportunity to submit comments both during the comment period for the proposed CAIR rulemaking of January 30, 2004 (70 FR 49708) and during the comment period for the proposed CAIR FIP of August 24, 2005 (70 FR 49708). EPA’s proposal to approve Virginia’s CAIR SIP did not reopen either the CAIR or CAIR FIP rulemakings. Consequently, CTDEP’s comments are not relevant to this rulemaking, or timely with respect to the CAIR and CAIR FIP rulemakings. Thus, EPA does not believe it is necessary to conduct PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 73603 additional analysis on whether Virginia or any other state satisfies the requirements of 110(a)(2)(D)(i) before approving Virginia’s CAIR SIP submission. III. Information Pertaining to SIP Submittals From the Commonwealth of Virginia In 1995, Virginia adopted legislation that provides, subject to certain conditions, for an environmental assessment (audit) ‘‘privilege’’ for voluntary compliance evaluations performed by a regulated entity. The legislation further addresses the relative burden of proof for parties either asserting the privilege or seeking disclosure of documents for which the privilege is claimed. Virginia’s legislation also provides, subject to certain conditions, for a penalty waiver for violations of environmental laws when a regulated entity discovers such violations pursuant to a voluntary compliance evaluation and voluntarily discloses such violations to the Commonwealth and takes prompt and appropriate measures to remedy the violations. Virginia’s Voluntary Environmental Assessment Privilege Law, Va. Code Sec. 10.1–1198, provides a privilege that protects from disclosure documents and information about the content of those documents that are the product of a voluntary environmental assessment. The Privilege Law does not extend to documents or information (1) that are generated or developed before the commencement of a voluntary environmental assessment; (2) that are prepared independently of the assessment process; (3) that demonstrate a clear, imminent and substantial danger to the public health or environment; or (4) that are required by law. On January 12, 1998, the Commonwealth of Virginia Office of the Attorney General provided a legal opinion that states that the Privilege law, Va. Code Sec. 10.1–1198, precludes granting a privilege to documents and information ‘‘required by law,’’ including documents and information ‘‘required by Federal law to maintain program delegation, authorization or approval,’’ since Virginia must ‘‘enforce Federally authorized environmental programs in a manner that is no less stringent than their Federal counterparts * * *.’’ The opinion concludes that ‘‘[r]egarding § 10.1–1198, therefore, documents or other information needed for civil or criminal enforcement under one of these programs could not be privileged because such documents and information are essential to pursuing enforcement in a manner required by E:\FR\FM\28DER1.SGM 28DER1 73604 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 248 / Friday, December 28, 2007 / Rules and Regulations Federal law to maintain program delegation, authorization or approval.’’ Virginia’s Immunity law, Va. Code Sec. 10.1–1199, provides that ‘‘[t]o the extent consistent with requirements imposed by Federal law,’’ any person making a voluntary disclosure of information to a state agency regarding a violation of an environmental statute, regulation, permit, or administrative order is granted immunity from administrative or civil penalty. The Attorney General’s January 12, 1998 opinion states that the quoted language renders this statute inapplicable to enforcement of any Federally authorized programs, since ‘‘no immunity could be afforded from administrative, civil, or criminal penalties because granting such immunity would not be consistent with Federal law, which is one of the criteria for immunity.’’ Therefore, EPA has determined that Virginia’s Privilege and Immunity statutes will not preclude the Commonwealth from enforcing its program consistent with the Federal requirements. In any event, because EPA has also determined that a state audit privilege and immunity law can affect only state enforcement and cannot have any impact on Federal enforcement authorities, EPA may at any time invoke its authority under the CAA, including, for example, sections 113, 167, 205, 211 or 213, to enforce the requirements or prohibitions of the state plan, independently of any state enforcement effort. In addition, citizen enforcement under section 304 of the CAA is likewise unaffected by this, or any, state audit privilege or immunity law. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with RULES IV. Final Action EPA is approving Virginia’s CAIR SIP revision submitted on March 30, 2007, and supplemented on April 30, 2007 and June 11, 2007. Under the SIP revision, Virginia will participate in the EPA-administered cap-and-trade programs for NOX annual, NOX ozone season, and SO2 annual emissions. The SIP revision meets the applicable requirements in 40 CFR 51.123(o) and (aa), with regard to NOX annual and NOX ozone season emissions, and 40 CFR 51.124(o), with regard to SO2 emissions. As a consequence of the SIP approval, the Administrator of EPA will issue, without providing an opportunity for a public hearing or an additional opportunity for written public comment, a final rule to withdraw the CAIR FIPs for SO2, NOX annual, and NOX ozone season emissions for Virginia. VerDate Aug<31>2005 23:53 Dec 27, 2007 Jkt 214001 V. Effective Date EPA finds that there is good cause for this approval to become effective on the date of publication because a delayed effective date is unnecessary due to the nature of the approval, which allows the Commonwealth to make allocations under its CAIR rules. The expedited effective date for this action is authorized under both 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(1), which provides that rule actions may become effective less than 30 days after publication if the rule ‘‘grants or recognizes an exemption or relieves a restriction’’ and section 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), which allows an effective date less than 30 days after publication ‘‘as otherwise provided by the agency for good cause found and published with the rule.’’ CAIR SIP approvals relieve states and CAIR sources within states from being subject to allowance allocation provisions in the CAIR FIPs that otherwise would apply to them, allowing States to make their own allowance allocations based on their SIP-approved State rule. The relief from these obligations is sufficient reason to allow an expedited effective date of this rule under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(1). VI. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews A. General Requirements 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 (Public Law 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 PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 requirement, 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 state rule implementing a Federal standard. In reviewing SIP 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 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 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.). B. Submission to Congress and the Comptroller General 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. This rule is not a E:\FR\FM\28DER1.SGM 28DER1 73605 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 248 / Friday, December 28, 2007 / Rules and Regulations This action to approve Virginia’s CAIR SIP revision may not be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2).) ‘‘major rule’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2). C. Petitions for Judicial Review 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 February 26, 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.

[EPA-R03-OAR-2007-0381; FRL-8510-3]


Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; 
Virginia; Clean Air Interstate Rule Budget Trading Programs

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: EPA is approving a State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision 
submitted by the Commonwealth of Virginia. This revision establishes 
budget trading programs for nitrogen oxides (NOX) annual, 
NOX ozone season, and sulfur dioxides (SO2) 
annual emissions to address the requirements of EPA's Clean Air 
Interstate Rule (CAIR). Virginia will meet its CAIR requirements by 
participating in the EPA-administered regional cap-and-trade program 
for NOX annual, NOX ozone season, and 
SO2 annual emissions. EPA is determining that the SIP 
revision fully implements the CAIR requirements for Virginia. 
Therefore, as a consequence of the SIP approval, EPA will also withdraw 
the CAIR Federal Implementation Plan (FIP) that addresses 
NOX annual, NOX ozone season, and SO2 
annual emissions in Virginia.

EFFECTIVE DATE: The final rule is effective on December 28, 2007.

ADDRESSES: EPA has established a docket for this action under Docket ID 
Number EPA-R03-OAR-2007-0381. All documents in the electronic docket

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    On March 30, 2007, and supplemented on April 30, 2007 and June 11, 
2007, the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (VADEQ) 
submitted a CAIR SIP revision to meet the requirements of CAIR, which 
was promulgated on May 12, 2005 (70 FR 25162), and subsequently revised 
on April 28, 2006, and December 13, 2006. The SIP revision is comprised 
of new regulations under 9 VAC 5 Chapter 140 of the Virginia Code as 
follows: Part II--NOX Annual Trading Program; Part III--
NOX Ozone Season Trading Program; and Part IV--
SO2 Annual Trading Program. The regulations address all the 
requirements of the part 96 model rules set forth in the May 12, 2005 
CAIR rulemaking.
    On September 25, 2007 (72 FR 54385), EPA published a notice of 
proposed rulemaking (NPR) to approve Virginia's CAIR SIP revision. A 
detailed discussion of the CAIR requirements, Virginia's CAIR 
submittal, and EPA's rationale for approval of Virginia's CAIR SIP 
revision may be found in the NPR and will not be repeated here. On 
October 24, 2007, EPA received adverse comments from the State of 
Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection.

II. Public Comments and EPA Responses

    Comment: On October 24, 2007, the Connecticut Department of 
Environmental Protection (CTDEP) submitted adverse comments on EPA's 
proposed approval of Virginia's CAIR SIP revision. CTDEP encourages EPA 
to approve state programs adopted to meet the emission reduction 
requirements of CAIR. However, it argues that before approving state 
CAIR plans, EPA should evaluate individually and in the aggregate each 
state's clean air programs. They argue such evaluation is necessary to 
ensure that each state's emissions do not significantly contribute to 
downwind nonattainment. CTDEP asserts its belief that the CAIR program 
does not ensure that the CAA section 110(a)(2)(D)(i) requirements to 
prohibit transported emissions that significantly contribute to 
nonattainment in Connecticut and other states will be met. CTDEP 
expresses concern that EPA is determining through this and other 
similar rulemakings that CAIR programs are sufficient to meet States' 
section 110(a)(2)(D)(i) obligations. CTDEP asserts, based on EPA and 
State modeling for CAIR, that the levels of transported pollution 
remaining after CAIR implementation are large enough that, even with 
local controls, it may be difficult for Connecticut to attain the 8-
hour ozone NAAQS by 2010. Finally, CTDEP questions EPA's determination 
that highly cost effective controls are adequate to address States' 
section 110(a)(2)(D)(i) obligations as compared to ``reasonable cost'' 
controls that could be achieved to effect more stringent NOX 
reductions.
    Response: EPA does not agree that it is appropriate or necessary 
for EPA to conduct additional analysis before approving Virginia's CAIR 
SIP revision. In the CAIR rulemaking promulgated on May 12, 2005 (70 FR 
25162), EPA established model rules for multi-State cap and trade 
programs for annual NOX, ozone season NOX, and 
annual SO2 that States may choose to adopt to meet the 
required emissions reductions in a flexible and cost-effective manner. 
EPA requires States that wish to participate in the EPA-administered 
cap and trade program to use the model rule (with only limited 
flexibility to modify specific provisions) to ensure that all 
participating sources, regardless of which State in the CAIR region 
they are located, are subject to the same trading and allowance holding 
requirements. Virginia has chosen to participate in the cap and trade 
program administered by EPA and has chosen to adopt the model rules 
with modifications allowed by flexibilities in the model rule. EPA has 
evaluated Virginia's SIP revision and determined that Virginia is 
meeting its CAIR requirements. CTDEP does not challenge this 
determination. Thus, CTDEP's comments do not specifically pertain to 
any aspect of EPA's proposed action to approve the Virginia CAIR SIP 
revision. Rather, the comments appear to be directed broadly at EPA's 
decisions with regard to States' section 110(a)(2)(D)(i) obligations. 
These decisions were made by EPA in the context of the CAIR rulemaking, 
not in the proposed action to approve Virginia's CAIR SIP revision. 
Therefore, CTDEP's comments are not relevant to the proposed action. 
CTDEP had ample opportunity to submit comments both during the comment 
period for the proposed CAIR rulemaking of January 30, 2004 (70 FR 
49708) and during the comment period for the proposed CAIR FIP of 
August 24, 2005 (70 FR 49708). EPA's proposal to approve Virginia's 
CAIR SIP did not reopen either the CAIR or CAIR FIP rulemakings. 
Consequently, CTDEP's comments are not relevant to this rulemaking, or 
timely with respect to the CAIR and CAIR FIP rulemakings. Thus, EPA 
does not believe it is necessary to conduct additional analysis on 
whether Virginia or any other state satisfies the requirements of 
110(a)(2)(D)(i) before approving Virginia's CAIR SIP submission.

III. Information Pertaining to SIP Submittals From the Commonwealth of 
Virginia

    In 1995, Virginia adopted legislation that provides, subject to 
certain conditions, for an environmental assessment (audit) 
``privilege'' for voluntary compliance evaluations performed by a 
regulated entity. The legislation further addresses the relative burden 
of proof for parties either asserting the privilege or seeking 
disclosure of documents for which the privilege is claimed. Virginia's 
legislation also provides, subject to certain conditions, for a penalty 
waiver for violations of environmental laws when a regulated entity 
discovers such violations pursuant to a voluntary compliance evaluation 
and voluntarily discloses such violations to the Commonwealth and takes 
prompt and appropriate measures to remedy the violations. Virginia's 
Voluntary Environmental Assessment Privilege Law, Va. Code Sec. 10.1-
1198, provides a privilege that protects from disclosure documents and 
information about the content of those documents that are the product 
of a voluntary environmental assessment. The Privilege Law does not 
extend to documents or information (1) that are generated or developed 
before the commencement of a voluntary environmental assessment; (2) 
that are prepared independently of the assessment process; (3) that 
demonstrate a clear, imminent and substantial danger to the public 
health or environment; or (4) that are required by law.
    On January 12, 1998, the Commonwealth of Virginia Office of the 
Attorney General provided a legal opinion that states that the 
Privilege law, Va. Code Sec. 10.1-1198, precludes granting a privilege 
to documents and information ``required by law,'' including documents 
and information ``required by Federal law to maintain program 
delegation, authorization or approval,'' since Virginia must ``enforce 
Federally authorized environmental programs in a manner that is no less 
stringent than their Federal counterparts * * *.'' The opinion 
concludes that ``[r]egarding Sec.  10.1-1198, therefore, documents or 
other information needed for civil or criminal enforcement under one of 
these programs could not be privileged because such documents and 
information are essential to pursuing enforcement in a manner required 
by

[[Page 73604]]

Federal law to maintain program delegation, authorization or 
approval.''
    Virginia's Immunity law, Va. Code Sec. 10.1-1199, provides that 
``[t]o the extent consistent with requirements imposed by Federal 
law,'' any person making a voluntary disclosure of information to a 
state agency regarding a violation of an environmental statute, 
regulation, permit, or administrative order is granted immunity from 
administrative or civil penalty. The Attorney General's January 12, 
1998 opinion states that the quoted language renders this statute 
inapplicable to enforcement of any Federally authorized programs, since 
``no immunity could be afforded from administrative, civil, or criminal 
penalties because granting such immunity would not be consistent with 
Federal law, which is one of the criteria for immunity.''
    Therefore, EPA has determined that Virginia's Privilege and 
Immunity statutes will not preclude the Commonwealth from enforcing its 
program consistent with the Federal requirements. In any event, because 
EPA has also determined that a state audit privilege and immunity law 
can affect only state enforcement and cannot have any impact on Federal 
enforcement authorities, EPA may at any time invoke its authority under 
the CAA, including, for example, sections 113, 167, 205, 211 or 213, to 
enforce the requirements or prohibitions of the state plan, 
independently of any state enforcement effort. In addition, citizen 
enforcement under section 304 of the CAA is likewise unaffected by 
this, or any, state audit privilege or immunity law.

IV. Final Action

    EPA is approving Virginia's CAIR SIP revision submitted on March 
30, 2007, and supplemented on April 30, 2007 and June 11, 2007. Under 
the SIP revision, Virginia will participate in the EPA-administered 
cap-and-trade programs for NOX annual, NOX ozone 
season, and SO2 annual emissions. The SIP revision meets the 
applicable requirements in 40 CFR 51.123(o) and (aa), with regard to 
NOX annual and NOX ozone season emissions, and 40 
CFR 51.124(o), with regard to SO2 emissions. As a 
consequence of the SIP approval, the Administrator of EPA will issue, 
without providing an opportunity for a public hearing or an additional 
opportunity for written public comment, a final rule to withdraw the 
CAIR FIPs for SO2, NOX annual, and NOX 
ozone season emissions for Virginia.

V. Effective Date

    EPA finds that there is good cause for this approval to become 
effective on the date of publication because a delayed effective date 
is unnecessary due to the nature of the approval, which allows the 
Commonwealth to make allocations under its CAIR rules. The expedited 
effective date for this action is authorized under both 5 U.S.C. 
553(d)(1), which provides that rule actions may become effective less 
than 30 days after publication if the rule ``grants or recognizes an 
exemption or relieves a restriction'' and section 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), 
which allows an effective date less than 30 days after publication ``as 
otherwise provided by the agency for good cause found and published 
with the rule.''
    CAIR SIP approvals relieve states and CAIR sources within states 
from being subject to allowance allocation provisions in the CAIR FIPs 
that otherwise would apply to them, allowing States to make their own 
allowance allocations based on their SIP-approved State rule. The 
relief from these obligations is sufficient reason to allow an 
expedited effective date of this rule under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(1).

VI. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

A. General Requirements

    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 (Public Law 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 
requirement, 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 state rule implementing a Federal 
standard. In reviewing SIP 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 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 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.).

B. Submission to Congress and the Comptroller General

    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. This rule is not a

[[Page 73605]]

``major rule'' as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).

C. Petitions for Judicial Review

    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 February 26, 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 to approve Virginia's CAIR SIP revision may not be 
challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See 
section 307(b)(2).)
