Analysis of Submittal On October 12, 2007, the State of Tennessee submitted a revision to the Knox County portion of the Tennessee SIP. This revision changes Knox County Regulation Sections 25.10.B.1.a and 25.10.B.2.a, so that these sections clearly state that turbines and other internal combustion engines are excluded from the ‘‘Permit by Rule’’ provision. The intent of the ‘‘Permit by Rule’’ provision is to provide a simple compliance technique to limit a facility’s potential emissions below that of the ‘‘major source’’ threshold, with respect to title V of the CAA. The ‘‘Permit by Rule’’ provision operates by using fuel loads to ensure that a source will not exceed the major source thresholds. Since internal combustion units and turbines emit more pollutant per fuel load than external combustion units, they are excluded from this ‘‘Permit by Rule’’ compliance technique and must instead follow the standard permitting approach. II. Final Action EPA is taking direct final action to approve the aforementioned changes into the SIP. EPA is publishing this rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:21 Nov 21, 2008 Jkt 217001 submittal and anticipates no adverse comments. However, in the proposed rules section of this Federal Register publication, EPA is publishing a separate document that will serve as the proposal to approve the SIP revision should adverse comments be filed. This rule will be effective January 23, 2009 without further notice unless the Agency receives adverse comments by December 24, 2008. If EPA receives such comments, then EPA will publish a document withdrawing the final rule and informing the public that the rule will not take effect. All public comments received will then be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on the proposed rule. EPA will not institute a second comment period. Parties interested in commenting should do so at this time. If no such comments are received, the public is advised that this rule will be effective on January 23, 2009 and no further action will be taken on the proposed rule. III. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Under the CAA, the Administrator is required to approve a SIP submission that complies with the provisions of the Act and applicable Federal regulations 42 U.S.C. 7410(k); 40 CFR 52.02(a). Thus, in reviewing SIP submissions, EPA’s role is to approve state choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the CAA. Accordingly, this 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 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 PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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. 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 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 the rule in the Federal Register. A major rule cannot take effect until 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register. This action is not a ‘‘major rule’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2). Under section 307(b)(1) of the CAA, petitions for judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by January 23, 2009. Filing a petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule does not affect the finality of this action for the purposes of judicial review nor does it extend the time within which a petition for judicial review may be filed, and shall not postpone the effectiveness of such rule or action. This action may not be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2).)

Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; 
Tennessee; Approval of Revisions to the Knox County Portion of the 
Tennessee State Implementation Plan--``Permit by Rule'' Provision

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Direct final rule.

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

SUMMARY: EPA is taking direct final action to approve the State 
Implementation Plan (SIP) revision submitted by the State of Tennessee 
on October 12, 2007. The revision pertains to the Knox County portion 
of the Tennessee SIP and includes changes to Knox County Air Quality 
Management Regulation (Knox County Regulation) Section 25.10--Permit by 
Rule. Specifically, Section 25.10 was changed so that it clearly states 
that turbines and other internal combustion engines are excluded from 
the ``Permit by Rule'' provision. This revision is considered by the 
Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC), to be as 
or more stringent than the State of Tennessee's SIP requirements. This 
action is being taken pursuant to section 110 of the Clean Air Act 
(CAA).

DATES: This direct final rule is effective January 23, 2009 without 
further notice, unless EPA receives adverse comment by December 24, 
2008. If EPA receives such comments, it will publish a timely

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Analysis of Submittal

    On October 12, 2007, the State of Tennessee submitted a revision to 
the Knox County portion of the Tennessee SIP. This revision changes 
Knox County Regulation Sections 25.10.B.1.a and 25.10.B.2.a, so that 
these sections clearly state that turbines and other internal 
combustion engines are excluded from the ``Permit by Rule'' provision. 
The intent of the ``Permit by Rule'' provision is to provide a simple 
compliance technique to limit a facility's potential emissions below 
that of the ``major source'' threshold, with respect to title V of the 
CAA. The ``Permit by Rule'' provision operates by using fuel loads to 
ensure that a source will not exceed the major source thresholds. Since 
internal combustion units and turbines emit more pollutant per fuel 
load than external combustion units, they are excluded from this 
``Permit by Rule'' compliance technique and must instead follow the 
standard permitting approach.

II. Final Action

    EPA is taking direct final action to approve the aforementioned 
changes into the SIP. EPA is publishing this rule without prior 
proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial submittal 
and anticipates no adverse comments. However, in the proposed rules 
section of this Federal Register publication, EPA is publishing a 
separate document that will serve as the proposal to approve the SIP 
revision should adverse comments be filed. This rule will be effective 
January 23, 2009 without further notice unless the Agency receives 
adverse comments by December 24, 2008.
    If EPA receives such comments, then EPA will publish a document 
withdrawing the final rule and informing the public that the rule will 
not take effect. All public comments received will then be addressed in 
a subsequent final rule based on the proposed rule. EPA will not 
institute a second comment period. Parties interested in commenting 
should do so at this time. If no such comments are received, the public 
is advised that this rule will be effective on January 23, 2009 and no 
further action will be taken on the proposed rule.

III. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under the CAA, the Administrator is required to approve a SIP 
submission that complies with the provisions of the Act and applicable 
Federal regulations 42 U.S.C. 7410(k); 40 CFR 52.02(a). Thus, in 
reviewing SIP submissions, EPA's role is to approve state choices, 
provided that they meet the criteria of the CAA. Accordingly, this 
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 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.
    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 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 the rule in the Federal Register. A major rule cannot 
take effect until 60 days after it is published in the Federal 
Register. This action is not a ``major rule'' as defined by 5 U.S.C. 
804(2).
    Under section 307(b)(1) of the CAA, petitions for judicial review 
of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for 
the appropriate circuit by January 23, 2009. Filing a petition for 
reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule does not affect 
the finality of this action 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
