ACTION: Final rule. SUMMARY: EPA is taking a final action finding that North Carolina and South Carolina have failed to submit state implementation plan (SIP) revisions to satisfy certain requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA) for the 1997 8-hour ozone national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS). The submissions at issue were due because the Charlotte bi-state area (Charlotte Area), which includes areas in both North and South Carolina, is a moderate nonattainment area for the 1997 8-hour ozone standard. Under the CAA and EPA’s implementing regulations, states with nonattainment areas classified as moderate, serious, severe or extreme were required to submit by June 15, 2007, SIPs: demonstrating how each nonattainment area would attain the 1997 8-hour ozone standard as expeditiously as practicable but no later than the applicable dates PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 established in the implementing regulations and demonstrating reasonable further progress (RFP). Additionally, states were required by September 15, 2006, to submit for these same areas, SIPs demonstrating that sources specified under the CAA were subject to reasonably available control technology requirements (RACT). North Carolina and South Carolina made these required submissions but later withdrew the attainment demonstration submissions for the Charlotte Area. As a result, EPA is making a finding of failure to submit for both North Carolina and South Carolina of the attainment demonstrations for the Charlotte Area. DATES: Effective Date: This action is effective on May 8, 2009. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: General questions concerning this notice should be addressed to Mr. Richard A. Schutt, U.S. EPA Region 4; e-mail: Schutt.dick@epa.gov; telephone (404) 562–9033. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Table of Contents I. Background II. Statutory Requirements III. Consequences of Findings of Failure To Submit IV. Final Action V. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews I. Background The CAA requires states with areas that are designated nonattainment for the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS to develop a SIP providing how such areas will attain and maintain the NAAQS. Part D of title I of the CAA specifies the required elements of a SIP for an area designated nonattainment. These requirements include, but are not limited to, RFP, RACT, and an attainment demonstration. See CAA sections 172 and 182. On March 24, 2008, EPA published a final rule in the Federal Register announcing that EPA had found that 11 states failed to make required SIP submissions for 11 nonattainment areas and 3 states or portions of states in the Ozone Transport Region. 73 FR 15416. At that time, EPA was in receipt of the required submissions from North Carolina and South Carolina for RFP, RACT and an attainment demonstration. However, both North Carolina and South Carolina have since withdrawn their attainment demonstration submittals, thus resulting in their failure to submit a required SIP. EPA received the required submittals from North Carolina on June 15, 2007, and South Carolina on August 31, 2007. EPA reviewed the submittals, as well as air quality data from the ozone season in 2007 and, more recently, preliminary E:\FR\FM\08MYR1.SGM 08MYR1
