Background On June 27, 2008 (73 FR 36477), EPA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPR) proposing limited approval of amendments to Virginia’s existing new source review permit program for owners of sources located or locating in nonattainment new source review (NNSR) areas, as submitted to EPA as revisions to the Virginia SIP on February 12, 2007 and approval of certain other amendments to Virginia regulations submitted to EPA on December 16, 2003. The February 12, 2007 SIP revision submission consisted of amendments to Legislative Rules 9 VAC 5 Chapter 50, Article 4—Stationary Sources and 9 VAC 5 Chapter 80, Article 9—Permits for Construction and Major Modification of Major Stationary Sources of Air Pollution which Cause or Contribute to Nonattainment. These rules were adopted by the Commonwealth of Virginia State Air Pollution Control Board on June 21, 2006 and became effective September 1, 2006. The December 16, 2003 SIP revision submission consisted of additional amendments to Legislative Rule 9 VAC Chapter 80, Article 9—Permits for Construction and Major Modification of Major Stationary Sources of Air Pollution which Cause or Contribute to Nonattainment. In this action, EPA is granting limited approval of the February 12, 2007 amendments to Chapter 50, Article 4 and Chapter 80, Article 9, as well as full approval of the December 16, 2003 amendments to Chapter 80, Article 9. Virginia also submitted changes to 9 VAC Chapter 80, Article 6—Permits for New and Modified Stationary Sources as part of the February 12, 2007 SIP revision. However, as stated in the NPR, EPA is not taking any action on Chapter 80, Article 6 at this time. ebenthall on PROD1PC60 with RULES II. Summary of SIP Revision Why is Virginia changing its NSR program? In its December 2002 regulatory action, EPA changed many aspects of the regulations governing the PSD and nonattainment NSR programs, collectively referred to as ‘‘NSR’’. Virginia accepted the conceptual VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:16 Oct 21, 2008 Jkt 217001 framework of EPA’s NSR reform revisions but tailored the program to their State-specific objectives. Virginia’s regulations differ in some respects from EPA’s regulations. However, these differences are not significant. EPA has concluded that Virginia’s regulations conform to the minimum program elements in 40 CFR 51.165 despite some variations in their rules from the federal program. Notable variations were described in the proposal action and will not be restated here. III. Limited Approval Why is EPA granting only ‘‘limited approval’’ of Virginia’s NSR regulations, effective September 1, 2006 for Nonattainment NSR areas? Virginia’s regulation 9 VAC 5–80– 2010 added a new definition for ‘‘baseline actual emissions’’ to reflect changes to the NSR program found in the 2002 Federal NSR Reform rule. Virginia’s definition for ‘‘baseline actual emissions’’ varies from the Federal definition at 40 CFR 51.166(b)(47) in two ways. First, for both electric generating units (EGUs) and non-EGUs, Virginia’s rule allows the use of different baselines for different pollutants if the owner can demonstrate to the satisfaction of the State Air Pollution Control Board (Board) that a different baseline period for a different pollutant(s) is more appropriate due to extenuating circumstances. This is acceptable to EPA. However, for non-EGUs, the 24-month baseline period must occur within the five-year period preceding the date the owner begins actual construction or the permit application is deemed complete, whichever is earlier, unless the Board allows a different time period that it deems is more representative of normal source operations. Allowing a more representative period by the Board is acceptable, however, the Commonwealth’s regulations could be interpreted to allow this period to be established beyond the 10-year time period allowed in the Federal NSR Reform rule. As described in our June 27 proposed rule the Virginia regulations meet the general Federal criteria for expanding the lookback period beyond the old requirement of the most recent 24month period, and in this respect are consistent with Federal requirements. EPA is granting limited approval because the language of the regulation does not limit the look-back period to the Federally mandated 10 years. Virginia has represented to EPA that the regulation was not intended to allow sources to extend the look-back period PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 beyond 10 years. EPA would look unfavorably upon any use of discretion by Virginia that would allow for baselines that exceed a 10-year lookback period. EPA expects Virginia to correct the definition at 9 VAC 5–80–2010 by limiting the discretionary lookback period to 10 years. When Virginia makes this amendment, they may submit the revised regulation for consideration for full approval of the Nonattainment NSR program. Despite the fact that the Virginia nonattainment new source review regulations may literally be construed to allow for a source to look beyond the 10 years prescribed by the Federal regulations, the Virginia regulations nevertheless will strengthen the Virginia SIP. IV. General 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,’’ E:\FR\FM\22OCR1.SGM 22OCR1 ebenthall on PROD1PC60 with RULES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 205 / Wednesday, October 22, 2008 / Rules and Regulations 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 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 NSR 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 Clean Air Act is likewise unaffected by this, or any, state audit privilege or immunity law. Other specific requirements of this SIP revision 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. V. Final Action EPA has determined that those regulatory amendments to the nonattainment NSR program at Chapter VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:16 Oct 21, 2008 Jkt 217001 50, Article 4 and Chapter 80, Article 9 that were submitted on February 12, 2007 are being granted limited approval as noted in Section III above. EPA has also determined that the regulatory amendments to the nonattainment NSR permit program at Chapter 80, Article 9, as submitted on December 16, 2003 are fully approvable. EPA has determined that these regulatory revisions meet the minimum requirements of 40 CFR 51.165 and the Clean Air Act. 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 (Pub. L. 104–4). This rule also does not have tribal implications because it will not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000). This action also does not have Federalism implications because it does not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government, as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999). This action merely approves a state rule implementing a Federal requirement, and does not alter the relationship or the distribution of PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 62895 power and responsibilities established in the Clean Air Act. This rule also is not subject to Executive Order 13045 (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 ‘‘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 December 22, 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 granting limited approval of the Virginia nonattainment new source review program for sources locating or located in nonattainment areas may not be challenged later in E:\FR\FM\22OCR1.SGM 22OCR1 62896 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 205 / Wednesday, October 22, 2008 / Rules and Regulations proceedings to enforce its requirements.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    On June 27, 2008 (73 FR 36477), EPA published a notice of proposed 
rulemaking (NPR) proposing limited approval of amendments to Virginia's 
existing new source review permit program for owners of sources located 
or locating in nonattainment new source review (NNSR) areas, as 
submitted to EPA as revisions to the Virginia SIP on February 12, 2007 
and approval of certain other amendments to Virginia regulations 
submitted to EPA on December 16, 2003.
    The February 12, 2007 SIP revision submission consisted of 
amendments to Legislative Rules 9 VAC 5 Chapter 50, Article 4--
Stationary Sources and 9 VAC 5 Chapter 80, Article 9--Permits for 
Construction and Major Modification of Major Stationary Sources of Air 
Pollution which Cause or Contribute to Nonattainment. These rules were 
adopted by the Commonwealth of Virginia State Air Pollution Control 
Board on June 21, 2006 and became effective September 1, 2006. The 
December 16, 2003 SIP revision submission consisted of additional 
amendments to Legislative Rule 9 VAC Chapter 80, Article 9--Permits for 
Construction and Major Modification of Major Stationary Sources of Air 
Pollution which Cause or Contribute to Nonattainment.
    In this action, EPA is granting limited approval of the February 
12, 2007 amendments to Chapter 50, Article 4 and Chapter 80, Article 9, 
as well as full approval of the December 16, 2003 amendments to Chapter 
80, Article 9. Virginia also submitted changes to 9 VAC Chapter 80, 
Article 6--Permits for New and Modified Stationary Sources as part of 
the February 12, 2007 SIP revision. However, as stated in the NPR, EPA 
is not taking any action on Chapter 80, Article 6 at this time.

II. Summary of SIP Revision

Why is Virginia changing its NSR program?

    In its December 2002 regulatory action, EPA changed many aspects of 
the regulations governing the PSD and nonattainment NSR programs, 
collectively referred to as ``NSR''. Virginia accepted the conceptual 
framework of EPA's NSR reform revisions but tailored the program to 
their State-specific objectives. Virginia's regulations differ in some 
respects from EPA's regulations. However, these differences are not 
significant. EPA has concluded that Virginia's regulations conform to 
the minimum program elements in 40 CFR 51.165 despite some variations 
in their rules from the federal program. Notable variations were 
described in the proposal action and will not be restated here.

III. Limited Approval

Why is EPA granting only ``limited approval'' of Virginia's NSR 
regulations, effective September 1, 2006 for Nonattainment NSR areas?

    Virginia's regulation 9 VAC 5-80-2010 added a new definition for 
``baseline actual emissions'' to reflect changes to the NSR program 
found in the 2002 Federal NSR Reform rule. Virginia's definition for 
``baseline actual emissions'' varies from the Federal definition at 40 
CFR 51.166(b)(47) in two ways. First, for both electric generating 
units (EGUs) and non-EGUs, Virginia's rule allows the use of different 
baselines for different pollutants if the owner can demonstrate to the 
satisfaction of the State Air Pollution Control Board (Board) that a 
different baseline period for a different pollutant(s) is more 
appropriate due to extenuating circumstances. This is acceptable to 
EPA.
    However, for non-EGUs, the 24-month baseline period must occur 
within the five-year period preceding the date the owner begins actual 
construction or the permit application is deemed complete, whichever is 
earlier, unless the Board allows a different time period that it deems 
is more representative of normal source operations. Allowing a more 
representative period by the Board is acceptable, however, the 
Commonwealth's regulations could be interpreted to allow this period to 
be established beyond the 10-year time period allowed in the Federal 
NSR Reform rule.
    As described in our June 27 proposed rule the Virginia regulations 
meet the general Federal criteria for expanding the lookback period 
beyond the old requirement of the most recent 24-month period, and in 
this respect are consistent with Federal requirements.
    EPA is granting limited approval because the language of the 
regulation does not limit the look-back period to the Federally 
mandated 10 years. Virginia has represented to EPA that the regulation 
was not intended to allow sources to extend the look-back period beyond 
10 years. EPA would look unfavorably upon any use of discretion by 
Virginia that would allow for baselines that exceed a 10-year lookback 
period. EPA expects Virginia to correct the definition at 9 VAC 5-80-
2010 by limiting the discretionary lookback period to 10 years. When 
Virginia makes this amendment, they may submit the revised regulation 
for consideration for full approval of the Nonattainment NSR program.
    Despite the fact that the Virginia nonattainment new source review 
regulations may literally be construed to allow for a source to look 
beyond the 10 years prescribed by the Federal regulations, the Virginia 
regulations nevertheless will strengthen the Virginia SIP.

IV. General 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,''

[[Page 62895]]

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 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 
NSR 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 Clean Air Act is likewise 
unaffected by this, or any, state audit privilege or immunity law.
    Other specific requirements of this SIP revision 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.

V. Final Action

    EPA has determined that those regulatory amendments to the 
nonattainment NSR program at Chapter 50, Article 4 and Chapter 80, 
Article 9 that were submitted on February 12, 2007 are being granted 
limited approval as noted in Section III above. EPA has also determined 
that the regulatory amendments to the nonattainment NSR permit program 
at Chapter 80, Article 9, as submitted on December 16, 2003 are fully 
approvable. EPA has determined that these regulatory revisions meet the 
minimum requirements of 40 CFR 51.165 and the Clean Air Act.

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 (Pub. L. 104-4). This rule also does not 
have tribal implications because it will not have a substantial direct 
effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the 
Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power 
and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, 
as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000). 
This action also does not have Federalism implications because it does 
not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship 
between the national government and the States, or on the distribution 
of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government, 
as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999). 
This action merely approves a state 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 (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 
``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 December 22, 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 granting limited approval of the Virginia 
nonattainment new source review program for sources locating or located 
in nonattainment areas may not be challenged later in

[[Page 62896]]

proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2).)
