Download as PDF 51610 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 172 / Thursday, September 4, 2008 / Proposed Rules action merely approves State law as meeting Federal requirements and does not impose additional requirements beyond those imposed by State law. For that reason, this proposed action: • Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993); • Does not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.); • Is certified as not having a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.); • 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); • Does not have Federalism implications as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999); • Is not an economically significant regulatory action based on health or safety risks subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997); • Is not a significant regulatory action subject to Executive Order 13211 (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001); • Is not subject to requirements of Section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) because application of those requirements would be inconsistent with the CAA; and • Does not provide EPA with the discretionary authority to address, as appropriate, disproportionate human health or environmental effects, using practicable and legally permissible methods, under Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994). In addition, this rule does not have tribal implications as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), because the SIP is not approved to apply in Indian country located in the state, and EPA notes that it will not impose substantial direct costs on tribal governments or preempt tribal law. ebenthall on PRODPC60 with PROPOSALS List of Subjects in 40 CFR Part 52 Environmental protection, Air pollution control, Carbon monoxide, Intergovernmental relations, Lead, Nitrogen dioxide, Ozone, Particulate matter, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Sulfur oxides, Volatile organic compounds.

ACTION: Proposed rule-consistency update. AGENCY: SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to update a portion of the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Air Regulations. Requirements applying to OCS sources located within 25 miles of states’ seaward boundaries must be updated periodically to remain consistent with the requirements of the corresponding onshore area (COA), as mandated by section 328(a)(1) of the Clean Air Act (‘‘CAA’’ or ‘‘the Act’’). The portion of the OCS air regulations that is being updated pertains to the requirements for OCS sources for which the State of Florida will be the designated COA. The effect of approving the OCS requirements for the State of Florida is to regulate emissions from OCS sources in accordance with the requirements onshore. The change to the existing requirements discussed below is proposed to be incorporated by reference into the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and is listed in the appendix to the OCS air regulations. This proposed action is an annual update of the Florida’s OCS Air Regulations. These rules include revisions to existing rules that already apply to OCS sources.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document whenever ‘‘we,’’ ‘‘us,’’ or ‘‘our’’ is used, we mean EPA. The following outline is provided to aid in locating information in this preamble. ebenthall on PRODPC60 with PROPOSALS I. Background and Purpose II. EPA’s Evaluation III. Proposed Action IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews I. Background and Purpose On September 4, 1992, EPA promulgated 40 CFR part 55,1 which established requirements to control air pollution from OCS sources in order to attain and maintain federal and state ambient air quality standards and to comply with the provisions of part C of title I of the Act. Part 55 applies to all OCS sources offshore of the states except those located in the Gulf of Mexico west of 87.5 degrees longitude. Section 328 of the Act requires that for such sources located within 25 miles of a state’s seaward boundary, the requirements shall be the same as would be applicable if the sources were located in the COA. Because the OCS requirements are based on onshore requirements, and onshore requirements may change, section 328(a)(1) of the Act requires that EPA update the OCS requirements as necessary to maintain consistency with onshore requirements. Pursuant to 40 CFR 55.12 of the OCS rule, ‘‘consistency reviews will occur at least annually. In addition, in 1 For further information see the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, December 5, 1991 (56 FR 63774), and the preamble to the final rule promulgated September 4, 1992 (57 FR 40792). VerDate Aug<31>2005 13:46 Sep 03, 2008 Jkt 214001 accordance with paragraphs (c) and (d) of this section, consistency reviews will occur upon receipt of an NOI (notice of intent) and when a State or local agency submits a rule to EPA to be considered for incorporation by reference in this part 55.’’ This proposed action is an annual update of the Florida’s OCS Air Regulations, which are incorporated by reference into 40 CFR part 55, Appendix A. Section 328(a) of the Act requires that EPA establish requirements to control air pollution from OCS sources located within 25 miles of states’ seaward boundaries that are the same as onshore requirements. To comply with this statutory mandate, EPA must incorporate applicable onshore rules into part 55 as they exist onshore. This process is distinct from the State Implementation Plan (SIP) process and incorporation of a rule into part 55 as part of the OCS consistency update process does not ensure such a rule would be appropriate for inclusion into the SIP. EPA’s review of Florida’s rules for OCS consistency update purposes is described below. 51611 III. Proposed Action EPA is proposing an annual update of the Florida’s OCS Air Regulations. These rules include revisions to existing rules that already apply to OCS sources. The rules that EPA is proposing to incorporate are applicable provisions of Chapter 62 of the Florida Administrative Code, listed in detail at the end of this document. IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews II. EPA’s Evaluation In updating 40 CFR part 55, Appendix A, EPA reviewed Florida’s rules for inclusion into part 55 to ensure that they are (1) rationally related to the attainment or maintenance of federal or state ambient air quality standards and part C of title I of the Act; (2) not designed expressly to prevent exploration and development of the OCS; and (3) applicable to OCS sources. 40 CFR 55.1. EPA has also evaluated the rules to ensure they are not arbitrary or capricious. 40 CFR 55.12(e). In addition, EPA has excluded administrative or procedural rules,2 and requirements that regulate toxics which are not related to the attainment and maintenance of federal and state ambient air quality standards. EPA is soliciting public comments on the proposal to update 40 CFR part 55, Appendix A to include recent changes to Florida’s onshore rules that affect OCS sources. Any comments will be considered before taking final action. Interested parties may participate in the Federal rulemaking procedure by submitting comments to the EPA Region 4 Office listed in the ADDRESSES section of this Federal Register. A. Executive Order 12866: Regulatory Planning and Review Under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735 (October 4, 1993)), the Agency must determine whether the regulatory action is ‘‘significant’’ and therefore subject to Office of Management and Budget (OMB) review and the requirements of the Executive Order. The Order defines ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ as one that is likely to result in a rule that may: (1) Have an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more or adversely affect in a material way the economy, a sector of the economy, productivity, competition, jobs, the environment, public health or safety, or state, local, or tribal governments or communities; (2) Create a serious inconsistency or otherwise interfere with an action taken or planned by another agency; (3) Materially alter the budgetary impact of entitlements, grants, user fees, or loan programs or the rights and obligations of recipients thereof; or (4) Raise novel legal or policy issues arising out of legal mandates, the President’s priorities, or the principles set forth in the Executive Order. This action is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under the terms of Executive Order 12866 and is therefore not subject to OMB Review. These rules implement requirements specifically and explicitly set forth by the Congress in section 328 of the CAA, without the exercise of any policy discretion by EPA. These OCS rules already apply in the COA, and EPA has no evidence to suggest that these OCS rules have created an adverse material effect. As required by section 328 of the CAA, this action simply updates the existing OCS requirements to make them consistent with rules in the COA. 2 Each COA which has been delegated the authority to implement and enforce part 55, will use its administrative and procedural rules as it does with onshore sources. However, in those instances where EPA has not delegated authority to implement and enforce part 55, as in Florida, EPA will use its own administrative and procedural requirements to implement the substantive requirements. See 40 CFR 55.14(c)(4). B. Paperwork Reduction Act The OMB has approved the information collection requirements contained in 40 CFR part 55, and by extension this update to the rules, under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 E:\FR\FM\04SEP1.SGM 04SEP1 51612 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 172 / Thursday, September 4, 2008 / Proposed Rules ebenthall on PRODPC60 with PROPOSALS and has assigned OMB control number 2060–0249. Notice of OMB’s approval of EPA Information Collection Request (ICR) No. 1601.06 was published in the Federal Register on March 1, 2006 (71 FR 10499). The approval expires January 31, 2009. As EPA previously indicated (70 FR 65897 (November 1, 2005)), the annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for collection of information under 40 CFR part 55 is estimated to average 549 hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA’s regulations in 40 CFR are listed in 40 CFR part 9 and are identified on the form and/or instrument, if applicable. C. Regulatory Flexibility Act The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) generally requires an agency to conduct a regulatory flexibility analysis of any rule subject to notice and comment rulemaking requirements unless the agency certifies that the rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Small entities include small businesses, small not-for-profit enterprises, and small governmental jurisdictions. These rules will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. These rules implement requirements specifically and explicitly set forth by the Congress in section 328 of the CAA, without the exercise of any policy discretion by EPA. These OCS rules already apply in the COA, and EPA has no evidence to suggest that these OCS rules have had a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. As required by section 328 of the CAA, this action simply updates the existing OCS requirements to make them consistent VerDate Aug<31>2005 13:46 Sep 03, 2008 Jkt 214001 with rules in the COA. Therefore, this action will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. D. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act Title II of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA), Public Law 104–4, establishes requirements for Federal agencies to assess the effects of their regulatory actions on state, local, and tribal governments and the private sector. Under section 202 of the UMRA, EPA generally must prepare a written statement, including a cost-benefit analysis, for proposed and final rules with ‘‘Federal mandates’’ that may result in expenditures to state, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or to the private sector, of $100 million or more in any one year. Before promulgating an EPA rule for which a written statement is needed, section 205 of the UMRA generally requires EPA to identify and consider a reasonable number of regulatory alternatives and adopt the least costly, most cost-effective or least burdensome alternative that achieves the objectives of the rule. The provisions of section 205 do not apply when they are inconsistent with applicable law. Moreover, section 205 allows EPA to adopt an alternative other than the least costly, most cost-effective or least burdensome alternative if the Administrator publishes with the final rule an explanation why that alternative was not adopted. Before EPA establishes any regulatory requirements that may significantly or uniquely affect small governments, including tribal governments, it must have developed under section 203 of the UMRA a small government agency plan. The plan must provide for notifying potentially affected small governments, enabling officials of affected small governments to have meaningful and timely input in the development of EPA regulatory proposals with significant Federal intergovernmental mandates, and informing, educating, and advising small governments on compliance with the regulatory requirements. This document contains no Federal mandates (under the regulatory provisions of Title II of the UMRA) for state, local, or tribal governments or the private sector that may result in expenditures of $100 million or more for state, local, or tribal governments, in the aggregate, or to the private sector in any one year. This action would implement requirements specifically and explicitly set forth by the Congress in section 328 of the CAA without the exercise of any policy discretion by EPA. The OCS rules already apply in PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 the COA, and EPA has no evidence to suggest that applying them in the OCS would result in expenditures to state, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or to the private sector, of $100 million or more in any one year. As required by section 328 of the CAA, this action simply updates the existing OCS requirements to make them consistent with rules in the COA. E. Executive Order 13132, Federalism Executive Order 13132, entitled ‘‘Federalism’’ (64 FR 43255 (August 10, 1999)), requires EPA to develop an accountable process to ensure ‘‘meaningful and timely input by state and local officials in the development of regulatory policies that have federalism implications.’’ ‘‘Policies that have federalism implications’’ is defined in the Executive Order to include regulations that 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.’’ This proposed rule does not have federalism implications. It will 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. These rules implement requirements specifically and explicitly set forth by the Congress in section 328 of the CAA, without the exercise of any policy discretion by EPA. As required by section 328 of the CAA, this rule simply updates the existing OCS rules to make them consistent with current COA requirements. These rules do not amend the existing provisions within 40 CFR part 55 enabling delegation of OCS regulations to a COA, and this rule does not require the COA to implement the OCS rules. Thus, Executive Order 13132 does not apply to this rule. In the spirit of Executive Order 13132, and consistent with EPA policy to promote communications between EPA and state and local governments, EPA specifically solicits comments on this proposed rule from state and local officials. F. Executive Order 13175, Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments Executive Order 13175, entitled ‘‘Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments’’ (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), requires EPA to develop an accountable process to ensure ‘‘meaningful and timely input by tribal officials in the development of E:\FR\FM\04SEP1.SGM 04SEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 172 / Thursday, September 4, 2008 / Proposed Rules regulatory policies that have tribal implications.’’ This rule does 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 and thus does not have ‘‘tribal implications,’’ within the meaning of Executive Order 13175. This rule implements requirements specifically and explicitly set forth by the Congress in section 328 of the CAA, without the exercise of any policy discretion by EPA. As required by section 328 of the CAA, this rule simply updates the existing OCS rules to make them consistent with current COA requirements. In addition, this rule does not impose substantial direct compliance costs on tribal governments, nor preempt tribal law. Consultation with Indian tribes is therefore not required under Executive Order 13175. Nonetheless, in the spirit of Executive Order 13175 and consistent with EPA policy to promote communications between EPA and tribes, EPA specifically solicits comments on this proposed rule from tribal officials. ebenthall on PRODPC60 with PROPOSALS G. Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children From Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks Executive Order 13045: ‘‘Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks’’ (62 FR 19885 (April 23, 1997)), applies to any rule that: (1) Is determined to be ‘‘economically significant’’ as defined under Executive Order 12866, and (2) concerns an environmental health or safety risk that EPA has reason to believe may have a disproportionate effect on children. If the regulatory action meets both criteria, the Agency must evaluate the environmental health or safety effects of the planned rule on children, and explain why the planned regulation is preferable to other potentially effective and reasonably feasible alternatives considered by the Agency. This proposed rule is not subject to Executive Order 13045 because it is not economically significant as defined in Executive Order 12866. In addition, the Agency does not have reason to believe the environmental health or safety risks addressed by this action present a disproportional risk to children. H. Executive Order 13211, Actions That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use This proposed rule is not subject to Executive Order 13211, ‘‘Actions Concerning Regulations That VerDate Aug<31>2005 13:46 Sep 03, 2008 Jkt 214001 Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use’’ (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001) because it is not a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866. I. National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act Section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (NTTAA), Public Law 104– 113, section 12(d) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs EPA to use voluntary consensus standards in its regulatory activities unless to do so would be inconsistent with applicable laws or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., materials specifications, test methods, sampling procedures, and business practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. The NTTAA directs EPA to provide Congress, through OMB, explanations when the Agency decided not to use available and applicable voluntary consensus standards. As discussed above, these rules implement requirements specifically and explicitly set forth by the Congress in section 328 of the CAA, without the exercise of any policy discretion by EPA. As required by section 328 of the CAA, this rule simply updates the existing OCS rules to make them consistent with current COA requirements. In the absence of a prior existing requirement for the state to use voluntary consensus standards and in light of the fact that EPA is required to make the OCS rules consistent with current COA requirements, it would be inconsistent with applicable law for EPA to use voluntary consensus standards in this action. Therefore, EPA is not considering the use of any voluntary consensus standards. EPA welcomes comments on this aspect of the proposed rulemaking and, specifically, invites the public to identify potentially applicable voluntary consensus standards and to explain why such standards should be used in this regulation. J. Executive Order 12898: Federal Actions To Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629 (February 16, 1994)) establishes federal executive policy on environmental justice. Its main provision directs federal agencies, to the greatest extent practicable and permitted by law, to make environmental justice part of their mission by identifying and addressing, as appropriate, disproportionately high and adverse human health or PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 51613 environmental effects of their programs, policies, and activities on minority populations and low-income populations in the United States. EPA lacks the discretionary authority to address environmental justice in this proposed action. This rule implements requirements specifically and explicitly set forth by the Congress in section 328 of the CAA, without the exercise of any policy discretion by EPA. As required by section 328 of the CAA, this rule simply updates the existing OCS rules to make them consistent with current COA requirements. Although EPA lacks authority to modify today’s regulatory decision on the basis of environmental justice considerations, EPA nevertheless explored this issue and found the following. This action, namely, updating the OCS rules to make them consistent with current COA requirements, will not have disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental effects on minority or low-income populations because it increases the level of environmental protection for all affected populations without having any disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental effects on any population, including any minority or low-income population. Environmental justice considerations may be appropriate to consider in the context of a specific OCS permit application.

Outer Continental Shelf Air Regulations Consistency Update for 
Florida

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule-consistency update.

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

SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to update a portion of the Outer Continental 
Shelf (OCS) Air Regulations. Requirements applying to OCS sources 
located within 25 miles of states' seaward boundaries must be updated 
periodically to remain consistent with the requirements of the 
corresponding onshore area (COA), as mandated by section 328(a)(1) of 
the Clean Air Act (``CAA'' or ``the Act''). The portion of the OCS air 
regulations that is being updated pertains to the requirements for OCS 
sources for which the State of Florida will be the designated COA. The 
effect of approving the OCS requirements for the State of Florida is to 
regulate emissions from OCS sources in accordance with the requirements 
onshore. The change to the existing requirements discussed below is 
proposed to be incorporated by reference into the Code of Federal 
Regulations (CFR) and is listed in the appendix to the OCS air 
regulations. This proposed action is an annual update of the Florida's 
OCS Air Regulations. These rules include revisions to existing rules 
that already apply to OCS sources.

DATES: Comments must be received on or before October 6, 2008.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID No. EPA-R04-
OAR-2008-0605, by one of the following methods:

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

provided to aid in locating information in this preamble.

I. Background and Purpose
II. EPA's Evaluation
III. Proposed Action
IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

I. Background and Purpose

    On September 4, 1992, EPA promulgated 40 CFR part 55,\1\ which 
established requirements to control air pollution from OCS sources in 
order to attain and maintain federal and state ambient air quality 
standards and to comply with the provisions of part C of title I of the 
Act. Part 55 applies to all OCS sources offshore of the states except 
those located in the Gulf of Mexico west of 87.5 degrees longitude. 
Section 328 of the Act requires that for such sources located within 25 
miles of a state's seaward boundary, the requirements shall be the same 
as would be applicable if the sources were located in the COA. Because 
the OCS requirements are based on onshore requirements, and onshore 
requirements may change, section 328(a)(1) of the Act requires that EPA 
update the OCS requirements as necessary to maintain consistency with 
onshore requirements.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ For further information see the Notice of Proposed 
Rulemaking, December 5, 1991 (56 FR 63774), and the preamble to the 
final rule promulgated September 4, 1992 (57 FR 40792).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 40 CFR 55.12 of the OCS rule, ``consistency reviews 
will occur at least annually. In addition, in accordance with 
paragraphs (c) and (d) of this section, consistency reviews will occur 
upon receipt of an NOI (notice of intent) and when a State or local 
agency submits a rule to EPA to be considered for incorporation by 
reference in this part 55.'' This proposed action is an annual update 
of the Florida's OCS Air Regulations, which are incorporated by 
reference into 40 CFR part 55, Appendix A.
    Section 328(a) of the Act requires that EPA establish requirements 
to control air pollution from OCS sources located within 25 miles of 
states' seaward boundaries that are the same as onshore requirements. 
To comply with this statutory mandate, EPA must incorporate applicable 
onshore rules into part 55 as they exist onshore. This process is 
distinct from the State Implementation Plan (SIP) process and 
incorporation of a rule into part 55 as part of the OCS consistency 
update process does not ensure such a rule would be appropriate for 
inclusion into the SIP. EPA's review of Florida's rules for OCS 
consistency update purposes is described below.

II. EPA's Evaluation

    In updating 40 CFR part 55, Appendix A, EPA reviewed Florida's 
rules for inclusion into part 55 to ensure that they are (1) rationally 
related to the attainment or maintenance of federal or state ambient 
air quality standards and part C of title I of the Act; (2) not 
designed expressly to prevent exploration and development of the OCS; 
and (3) applicable to OCS sources. 40 CFR 55.1. EPA has also evaluated 
the rules to ensure they are not arbitrary or capricious. 40 CFR 
55.12(e). In addition, EPA has excluded administrative or procedural 
rules,\2\ and requirements that regulate toxics which are not related 
to the attainment and maintenance of federal and state ambient air 
quality standards.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Each COA which has been delegated the authority to implement 
and enforce part 55, will use its administrative and procedural 
rules as it does with onshore sources. However, in those instances 
where EPA has not delegated authority to implement and enforce part 
55, as in Florida, EPA will use its own administrative and 
procedural requirements to implement the substantive requirements. 
See 40 CFR 55.14(c)(4).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    EPA is soliciting public comments on the proposal to update 40 CFR 
part 55, Appendix A to include recent changes to Florida's onshore 
rules that affect OCS sources. Any comments will be considered before 
taking final action. Interested parties may participate in the Federal 
rulemaking procedure by submitting comments to the EPA Region 4 Office 
listed in the ADDRESSES section of this Federal Register.

III. Proposed Action

    EPA is proposing an annual update of the Florida's OCS Air 
Regulations. These rules include revisions to existing rules that 
already apply to OCS sources. The rules that EPA is proposing to 
incorporate are applicable provisions of Chapter 62 of the Florida 
Administrative Code, listed in detail at the end of this document.

IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

A. Executive Order 12866: Regulatory Planning and Review

    Under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735 (October 4, 1993)), the 
Agency must determine whether the regulatory action is ``significant'' 
and therefore subject to Office of Management and Budget (OMB) review 
and the requirements of the Executive Order. The Order defines 
``significant regulatory action'' as one that is likely to result in a 
rule that may:
    (1) Have an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more or 
adversely affect in a material way the economy, a sector of the 
economy, productivity, competition, jobs, the environment, public 
health or safety, or state, local, or tribal governments or 
communities;
    (2) Create a serious inconsistency or otherwise interfere with an 
action taken or planned by another agency;
    (3) Materially alter the budgetary impact of entitlements, grants, 
user fees, or loan programs or the rights and obligations of recipients 
thereof; or
    (4) Raise novel legal or policy issues arising out of legal 
mandates, the President's priorities, or the principles set forth in 
the Executive Order.
    This action is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under the 
terms of Executive Order 12866 and is therefore not subject to OMB 
Review. These rules implement requirements specifically and explicitly 
set forth by the Congress in section 328 of the CAA, without the 
exercise of any policy discretion by EPA. These OCS rules already apply 
in the COA, and EPA has no evidence to suggest that these OCS rules 
have created an adverse material effect. As required by section 328 of 
the CAA, this action simply updates the existing OCS requirements to 
make them consistent with rules in the COA.

B. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The OMB has approved the information collection requirements 
contained in 40 CFR part 55, and by extension this update to the rules, 
under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et 
seq.,

[[Page 51612]]

and has assigned OMB control number 2060-0249. Notice of OMB's approval 
of EPA Information Collection Request (ICR) No. 1601.06 was published 
in the Federal Register on March 1, 2006 (71 FR 10499). The approval 
expires January 31, 2009. As EPA previously indicated (70 FR 65897 
(November 1, 2005)), the annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for collection of information under 40 CFR part 55 is estimated 
to average 549 hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, 
or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, 
retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. 
This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, 
install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of 
collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and 
maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; 
adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable 
instructions and requirements; train personnel to be able to respond to 
a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review 
the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the 
information.
    An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required 
to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a 
currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA's 
regulations in 40 CFR are listed in 40 CFR part 9 and are identified on 
the form and/or instrument, if applicable.

C. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) generally requires an agency 
to conduct a regulatory flexibility analysis of any rule subject to 
notice and comment rulemaking requirements unless the agency certifies 
that the rule will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities. Small entities include small 
businesses, small not-for-profit enterprises, and small governmental 
jurisdictions.
    These rules will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities. These rules implement 
requirements specifically and explicitly set forth by the Congress in 
section 328 of the CAA, without the exercise of any policy discretion 
by EPA. These OCS rules already apply in the COA, and EPA has no 
evidence to suggest that these OCS rules have had a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. As required 
by section 328 of the CAA, this action simply updates the existing OCS 
requirements to make them consistent with rules in the COA. Therefore, 
this action will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities.

D. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    Title II of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA), Public 
Law 104-4, establishes requirements for Federal agencies to assess the 
effects of their regulatory actions on state, local, and tribal 
governments and the private sector. Under section 202 of the UMRA, EPA 
generally must prepare a written statement, including a cost-benefit 
analysis, for proposed and final rules with ``Federal mandates'' that 
may result in expenditures to state, local, and tribal governments, in 
the aggregate, or to the private sector, of $100 million or more in any 
one year.
    Before promulgating an EPA rule for which a written statement is 
needed, section 205 of the UMRA generally requires EPA to identify and 
consider a reasonable number of regulatory alternatives and adopt the 
least costly, most cost-effective or least burdensome alternative that 
achieves the objectives of the rule. The provisions of section 205 do 
not apply when they are inconsistent with applicable law. Moreover, 
section 205 allows EPA to adopt an alternative other than the least 
costly, most cost-effective or least burdensome alternative if the 
Administrator publishes with the final rule an explanation why that 
alternative was not adopted.
    Before EPA establishes any regulatory requirements that may 
significantly or uniquely affect small governments, including tribal 
governments, it must have developed under section 203 of the UMRA a 
small government agency plan. The plan must provide for notifying 
potentially affected small governments, enabling officials of affected 
small governments to have meaningful and timely input in the 
development of EPA regulatory proposals with significant Federal 
intergovernmental mandates, and informing, educating, and advising 
small governments on compliance with the regulatory requirements.
    This document contains no Federal mandates (under the regulatory 
provisions of Title II of the UMRA) for state, local, or tribal 
governments or the private sector that may result in expenditures of 
$100 million or more for state, local, or tribal governments, in the 
aggregate, or to the private sector in any one year. This action would 
implement requirements specifically and explicitly set forth by the 
Congress in section 328 of the CAA without the exercise of any policy 
discretion by EPA. The OCS rules already apply in the COA, and EPA has 
no evidence to suggest that applying them in the OCS would result in 
expenditures to state, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, 
or to the private sector, of $100 million or more in any one year. As 
required by section 328 of the CAA, this action simply updates the 
existing OCS requirements to make them consistent with rules in the 
COA.

E. Executive Order 13132, Federalism

    Executive Order 13132, entitled ``Federalism'' (64 FR 43255 (August 
10, 1999)), requires EPA to develop an accountable process to ensure 
``meaningful and timely input by state and local officials in the 
development of regulatory policies that have federalism implications.'' 
``Policies that have federalism implications'' is defined in the 
Executive Order to include regulations that 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.''
    This proposed rule does not have federalism implications. It will 
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. These rules implement 
requirements specifically and explicitly set forth by the Congress in 
section 328 of the CAA, without the exercise of any policy discretion 
by EPA. As required by section 328 of the CAA, this rule simply updates 
the existing OCS rules to make them consistent with current COA 
requirements. These rules do not amend the existing provisions within 
40 CFR part 55 enabling delegation of OCS regulations to a COA, and 
this rule does not require the COA to implement the OCS rules. Thus, 
Executive Order 13132 does not apply to this rule.
    In the spirit of Executive Order 13132, and consistent with EPA 
policy to promote communications between EPA and state and local 
governments, EPA specifically solicits comments on this proposed rule 
from state and local officials.

F. Executive Order 13175, Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments

    Executive Order 13175, entitled ``Consultation and Coordination 
with Indian Tribal Governments'' (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), 
requires EPA to develop an accountable process to ensure ``meaningful 
and timely input by tribal officials in the development of

[[Page 51613]]

regulatory policies that have tribal implications.'' This rule does 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 and thus does not have ``tribal 
implications,'' within the meaning of Executive Order 13175. This rule 
implements requirements specifically and explicitly set forth by the 
Congress in section 328 of the CAA, without the exercise of any policy 
discretion by EPA. As required by section 328 of the CAA, this rule 
simply updates the existing OCS rules to make them consistent with 
current COA requirements. In addition, this rule does not impose 
substantial direct compliance costs on tribal governments, nor preempt 
tribal law. Consultation with Indian tribes is therefore not required 
under Executive Order 13175. Nonetheless, in the spirit of Executive 
Order 13175 and consistent with EPA policy to promote communications 
between EPA and tribes, EPA specifically solicits comments on this 
proposed rule from tribal officials.

G. Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children From Environmental 
Health Risks and Safety Risks

    Executive Order 13045: ``Protection of Children from Environmental 
Health Risks and Safety Risks'' (62 FR 19885 (April 23, 1997)), applies 
to any rule that: (1) Is determined to be ``economically significant'' 
as defined under Executive Order 12866, and (2) concerns an 
environmental health or safety risk that EPA has reason to believe may 
have a disproportionate effect on children. If the regulatory action 
meets both criteria, the Agency must evaluate the environmental health 
or safety effects of the planned rule on children, and explain why the 
planned regulation is preferable to other potentially effective and 
reasonably feasible alternatives considered by the Agency.
    This proposed rule is not subject to Executive Order 13045 because 
it is not economically significant as defined in Executive Order 12866. 
In addition, the Agency does not have reason to believe the 
environmental health or safety risks addressed by this action present a 
disproportional risk to children.

H. Executive Order 13211, Actions That Significantly Affect Energy 
Supply, Distribution, or Use

    This proposed rule is not subject to Executive Order 13211, 
``Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy 
Supply, Distribution, or Use'' (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001) because it 
is not a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866.

I. National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act

    Section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement 
Act of 1995 (NTTAA), Public Law 104-113, section 12(d) (15 U.S.C. 272 
note) directs EPA to use voluntary consensus standards in its 
regulatory activities unless to do so would be inconsistent with 
applicable laws or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards 
are technical standards (e.g., materials specifications, test methods, 
sampling procedures, and business practices) that are developed or 
adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. The NTTAA directs EPA 
to provide Congress, through OMB, explanations when the Agency decided 
not to use available and applicable voluntary consensus standards.
    As discussed above, these rules implement requirements specifically 
and explicitly set forth by the Congress in section 328 of the CAA, 
without the exercise of any policy discretion by EPA. As required by 
section 328 of the CAA, this rule simply updates the existing OCS rules 
to make them consistent with current COA requirements. In the absence 
of a prior existing requirement for the state to use voluntary 
consensus standards and in light of the fact that EPA is required to 
make the OCS rules consistent with current COA requirements, it would 
be inconsistent with applicable law for EPA to use voluntary consensus 
standards in this action. Therefore, EPA is not considering the use of 
any voluntary consensus standards. EPA welcomes comments on this aspect 
of the proposed rulemaking and, specifically, invites the public to 
identify potentially applicable voluntary consensus standards and to 
explain why such standards should be used in this regulation.

J. Executive Order 12898: Federal Actions To Address Environmental 
Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations

    Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629 (February 16, 1994)) establishes 
federal executive policy on environmental justice. Its main provision 
directs federal agencies, to the greatest extent practicable and 
permitted by law, to make environmental justice part of their mission 
by identifying and addressing, as appropriate, disproportionately high 
and adverse human health or environmental effects of their programs, 
policies, and activities on minority populations and low-income 
populations in the United States. EPA lacks the discretionary authority 
to address environmental justice in this proposed action. This rule 
implements requirements specifically and explicitly set forth by the 
Congress in section 328 of the CAA, without the exercise of any policy 
discretion by EPA. As required by section 328 of the CAA, this rule 
simply updates the existing OCS rules to make them consistent with 
current COA requirements.
    Although EPA lacks authority to modify today's regulatory decision 
on the basis of environmental justice considerations, EPA nevertheless 
explored this issue and found the following. This action, namely, 
updating the OCS rules to make them consistent with current COA 
requirements, will not have disproportionately high and adverse human 
health or environmental effects on minority or low-income populations 
because it increases the level of environmental protection for all 
affected populations without having any disproportionately high and 
adverse human health or environmental effects on any population, 
including any minority or low-income population. Environmental justice 
considerations may be appropriate to consider in the context of a 
specific OCS permit application.
