Download as PDF mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 123 / Wednesday, June 25, 2008 / Notices The following analysis demonstrates that the State of Colorado’s program is at least as protective as the elements of the Federal program. 5.3.1 Purpose of the proposed regulation. The purpose of the Pre-Renovation Education in Target Housing Regulation Number 19, Part B, is to reduce exposure to lead hazards that may result from renovation activities conducted in ‘‘target housing,’’ including dwelling units and common areas. Regulation Number 19, Part B, will not regulate activities in public or commercial buildings. Regulation Number 19, Part B, includes provisions to establish requirements for certain persons who perform renovations of target housing for compensation to provide a lead hazard information pamphlet to the owner and occupant of such housing prior to commencing the renovation. 5.3.2 Program elements. The Division has followed EPA’s regulation at 40 CFR part 745 and the State Legislature’s statutory requirements to develop Regulation Number 19, Part B, to be both consistent with the federal program and acceptable to EPA. Implementation of Regulation Number 19, Part B, is an appropriate step to continuing to prevent exposing children to lead hazards that may result from certain renovation activities in ‘‘target housing.’’ The scope and applicability of Regulation Number 19, Part B, (Section I., Scope and Applicability) has the same meaning as the scope and applicability of EPA’s program (40 CFR 745.82). Regulation Number 19, Part B, includes or incorporates definitions (Section II, Definitions) that are nearly identical to EPA’s program (40 CFR 745.83). This includes the clear requirement that the information must meet the requirements of TSCA 406(a) or be approved by EPA pursuant to 40 CFR 745.326. The information distribution requirements provided by Regulation Number 19, Part B, (Section III., Information Distribution Requirements) are nearly identical to EPA’s (40 CFR 745.85). The information distribution requirements of Regulation Number 19, Part B, include renovations in dwelling units (section III.A.), renovation in common areas (Section III.B.), and written acknowledgements (Section III.C.) which correspond almost word for word to EPA requirements (40 CFR 745.85(a), (b) and (c)). Regulation No. 19, Part B, includes recordkeeping requirements (Section IV., Recordkeeping Requirements) designed VerDate Aug<31>2005 21:19 Jun 24, 2008 Jkt 214001 to match those of the EPA (40 CFR 745.86). Also included in Regulation Number 19, Part B, is sample language for acknowledgement and certification statements (Section V., Acknowledgement and Certification Statements). The sample language in this section was designed to match the clear intent and have the same meaning as EPA program’s sample language (40 CFR 745.88). 5.3.3 Conclusion This analysis of substantive program elements demonstrates that Colorado’s Pre-Renovation Education in Target Housing Regulation Number 19, Part B, is at least as protective of human health and the environment as the Federal regulations developed pursuant to TSCA section 406. IV. Federal Overfiling Section 404(b) of TSCA makes it unlawful for any person to violate, or fail or refuse to comply with, any requirement of an approved State or Tribal program. Therefore, EPA reserves the right to exercise its enforcement authority under TSCA against a violation of, or a failure or refusal to comply with, any requirement of an authorized state or tribal program. V. 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 certain actions may take effect, the agency promulgating the action must submit a report, which includes a copy of the action, to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. EPA will submit a report containing this action 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 this document in the Federal Register. This action is not a ‘‘major rule’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2). List of Subjects Environmental protection, Hazardous substances, Lead, Renovation notification, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements. Dated: May 27, 2008. Robert E.
