ACTION: Final rule; notice of administrative change. AGENCY: SUMMARY: EPA is updating the materials submitted by Rhode Island that are incorporated by reference (IBR) into the State implementation plan (SIP). In this action, EPA is also notifying the public of the correction of certain typographical errors within the IBR Tables. The regulations affected by this update have been previously submitted by the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM) and approved by EPA. This update affects the SIP materials that are available for public inspection at the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), the Air and Radiation Docket and Information Center located at EPA Headquarters in Washington, DC, and the Regional Office. DATES: Effective Date: This action is effective November 24, 2008. ADDRESSES: SIP materials which are incorporated by reference into 40 CFR part 52 are available for inspection at the following locations: Environmental Protection Agency, New England Regional Office (Region 1), One Congress Street, Suite 1100, Boston, MA 02114–2023; the Air and Radiation Docket and Information Center, EPA Headquarters Library, Room Number 3334, EPA West Building, 1301 Constitution Ave., NW., Washington, DC 20460, and the National Archives and Records Administration. If you wish to obtain materials from a docket in the EPA Headquarters Library, please call the Office of Air and Radiation (OAR) Docket/Telephone number: (202) 566–1742; or the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). For information on the availability of this material at NARA, call 202–741–6030, or go to: https://www.archives.gov/ federal_register/ code_of_federal_regulations/ ibr_locations.html. Mr. Donald Cooke, Environmental Scientist, at the above EPA New England Region address or at (617) 918–1668 or by e-mail at cooke.donald@epa.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 70873 The SIP is a living document which the State can revise as necessary to address its unique air pollution problems. Therefore, EPA from time to time must take action on SIP revisions containing new and/or revised regulations as being part of the SIP. On May 22, 1997, (62 FR 27968), EPA revised the procedures for incorporation by reference for Federallyapproved SIPs, as a result of consultations between EPA and the Office of Federal Register (OFR). The description of the revised SIP document, IBR procedures and ‘‘Identification of plan’’ format are discussed in further detail in the May 22, 1997 Federal Register document. On August 9, 1999 (64 FR 43083), EPA published a Federal Register beginning the new IBR procedure for Rhode Island. On June 11, 2003 (68 FR 34813) and July 14, 2006 (71 FR 40014), EPA published updates to the IBR Material for Rhode Island. In this document, EPA is doing the following: ■ 1. Announcing the update to the Rhode Island IBR material as of October 15, 2008. 2. Making a correction in the paragraph 52.2070(c) chart, fifteenth entry ‘‘Air Pollution Control Regulation 15.’’—Typographic error corrected in the explanations column by changing the word ‘‘except’’ to read ‘‘exception’’. 3. Making a correction in the paragraph 52.2070(d) chart, third entry ‘‘Keene Corporation, East Providence, RI.’’—Typographic error corrected in the explanations column by changing ‘‘sixpaper’’ to read ‘‘six paper’’. 3. Making corrections to the date format listed in paragraphs 52.2070(c), (d) and (e) charts.—Revise the date format in the ‘‘state effective date,’’ column as well as the ‘‘EPA approval date,’’ column for consistency. Dates are numerical month/day/year without additional zeros. 4. Making corrections to the abbreviation for nitrogen oxides in paragraphs 52.2070(c), (d) and (e) charts.—Revise the format of the abbreviation for nitrogen oxides (NOX) for consistency. EPA has determined that today’s rule falls under the ‘‘good cause’’ exemption in section 553(b)(3)(B) of the Administrative Procedures Act (APA) which, upon finding ‘‘good cause,’’ authorizes agencies to dispense with public participation and section 553(d)(3) which allows an agency to make a rule effective immediately (thereby avoiding the 30-day delayed effective date otherwise provided for in the APA). Today’s rule simply codifies SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\24NOR1.SGM 24NOR1 70874 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 227 / Monday, November 24, 2008 / Rules and Regulations provisions which are already in effect as a matter of law in Federal and approved State programs, and corrects typographical errors. Under section 553 of the APA, an agency may find good cause where procedures are ‘‘impractical, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Public comment is ‘‘unnecessary’’’ and ‘‘contrary to the public interest’’ since the codification (and typographical corrections) only reflects existing law. Immediate notice in the CFR benefits the public by removing outdated citations and incorrect chart entries. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with RULES 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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:21 Nov 21, 2008 Jkt 217001 Federal standard, and does not alter the relationship or the distribution of power and responsibilities established in the Clean Air Act. This rule also is not subject to Executive Order 13045 ‘‘Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks’’ (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), because it is not economically significant. 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 EPA has also determined that the provisions of section 307(b)(1) of the Clean Air Act, pertaining to petitions for judicial review are not applicable to this action. Prior EPA rulemaking actions for each individual component of the Rhode Island SIP compilations had previously afforded interested parties the opportunity to file a petition for judicial review in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit within 60 days of such rulemaking action. Thus, EPA sees no need in this action to reopen the 60-day PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 period for filing such petitions for judicial review for this ‘‘Identification of plan’’ reorganization update action for Rhode Island.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 52

[RI-19-1222c; FRL-8733-6]


Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; 
Rhode Island Update to Materials Incorporated by Reference

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Final rule; notice of administrative change.

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

SUMMARY: EPA is updating the materials submitted by Rhode Island that 
are incorporated by reference (IBR) into the State implementation plan 
(SIP). In this action, EPA is also notifying the public of the 
correction of certain typographical errors within the IBR Tables. The 
regulations affected by this update have been previously submitted by 
the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM) and 
approved by EPA. This update affects the SIP materials that are 
available for public inspection at the National Archives and Records 
Administration (NARA), the Air and Radiation Docket and Information 
Center located at EPA Headquarters in Washington, DC, and the Regional 
Office.

DATES: Effective Date: This action is effective November 24, 2008.

ADDRESSES: SIP materials which are incorporated by reference into 40 
CFR part 52 are available for inspection at the following locations: 
Environmental Protection Agency, New England Regional Office (Region 
1), One Congress Street, Suite 1100, Boston, MA 02114-2023; the Air and 
Radiation Docket and Information Center, EPA Headquarters Library, Room 
Number 3334, EPA West Building, 1301 Constitution Ave., NW., 
Washington, DC 20460, and the National Archives and Records 
Administration. If you wish to obtain materials from a docket in the 
EPA Headquarters Library, please call the Office of Air and Radiation 
(OAR) Docket/Telephone number: (202) 566-1742; or the National Archives 
and Records Administration (NARA). For information on the availability 
of this material at NARA, call 202-741-6030, or go to: https://www.archives.gov/federal_register/code_of_federal_regulations/ibr_locations.html.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Donald Cooke, Environmental 
Scientist, at the above EPA New England Region address or at (617) 918-
1668 or by e-mail at cooke.donald@epa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The SIP is a living document which the State 
can revise as necessary to address its unique air pollution problems. 
Therefore, EPA from time to time must take action on SIP revisions 
containing new and/or revised regulations as being part of the SIP. On 
May 22, 1997, (62 FR 27968), EPA revised the procedures for 
incorporation by reference for Federally-approved SIPs, as a result of 
consultations between EPA and the Office of Federal Register (OFR). The 
description of the revised SIP document, IBR procedures and 
``Identification of plan'' format are discussed in further detail in 
the May 22, 1997 Federal Register document. On August 9, 1999 (64 FR 
43083), EPA published a Federal Register beginning the new IBR 
procedure for Rhode Island. On June 11, 2003 (68 FR 34813) and July 14, 
2006 (71 FR 40014), EPA published updates to the IBR Material for Rhode 
Island.
    In this document, EPA is doing the following:

0
1. Announcing the update to the Rhode Island IBR material as of October 
15, 2008.
    2. Making a correction in the paragraph 52.2070(c) chart, fifteenth 
entry ``Air Pollution Control Regulation 15.''--Typographic error 
corrected in the explanations column by changing the word ``except'' to 
read ``exception''.
    3. Making a correction in the paragraph 52.2070(d) chart, third 
entry ``Keene Corporation, East Providence, RI.''--Typographic error 
corrected in the explanations column by changing ``sixpaper'' to read 
``six paper''.
    3. Making corrections to the date format listed in paragraphs 
52.2070(c), (d) and (e) charts.--Revise the date format in the ``state 
effective date,'' column as well as the ``EPA approval date,'' column 
for consistency. Dates are numerical month/day/year without additional 
zeros.
    4. Making corrections to the abbreviation for nitrogen oxides in 
paragraphs 52.2070(c), (d) and (e) charts.--Revise the format of the 
abbreviation for nitrogen oxides (NOX) for consistency.
    EPA has determined that today's rule falls under the ``good cause'' 
exemption in section 553(b)(3)(B) of the Administrative Procedures Act 
(APA) which, upon finding ``good cause,'' authorizes agencies to 
dispense with public participation and section 553(d)(3) which allows 
an agency to make a rule effective immediately (thereby avoiding the 
30-day delayed effective date otherwise provided for in the APA). 
Today's rule simply codifies

[[Page 70874]]

provisions which are already in effect as a matter of law in Federal 
and approved State programs, and corrects typographical errors. Under 
section 553 of the APA, an agency may find good cause where procedures 
are ``impractical, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.'' 
Public comment is ``unnecessary''' and ``contrary to the public 
interest'' since the codification (and typographical corrections) only 
reflects existing law. Immediate notice in the CFR benefits the public 
by removing outdated citations and incorrect chart entries.

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 
standard, and does not alter the relationship or the distribution of 
power and responsibilities established in the Clean Air Act. This rule 
also is not subject to Executive Order 13045 ``Protection of Children 
from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks'' (62 FR 19885, April 
23, 1997), because it is not economically significant.
    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

    EPA has also determined that the provisions of section 307(b)(1) of 
the Clean Air Act, pertaining to petitions for judicial review are not 
applicable to this action. Prior EPA rulemaking actions for each 
individual component of the Rhode Island SIP compilations had 
previously afforded interested parties the opportunity to file a 
petition for judicial review in the United States Court of Appeals for 
the appropriate circuit within 60 days of such rulemaking action. Thus, 
EPA sees no need in this action to reopen the 60-day period for filing 
such petitions for judicial review for this ``Identification of plan'' 
reorganization update action for Rhode Island.
