Download as PDF mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES 3628 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 13 / Thursday, January 20, 2011 / Notices Frequency of Response: Occasionally, one time per delegation request. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 37,107 hours. Estimated Total Annual Cost: About $1,355,100. This includes an estimated labor burden cost of $1,352,000 and an estimated cost of $3,100 for operation and maintenance costs resulting from photocopying and postage expenses. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 25,737 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. The change in burden results from: (1) A decrease in the number of S/L/Ts taking delegation, (2) an increase in the number of occurrences related to the number of National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) delegated, and (3) a change in the distribution of S/L/Ts using each option when delegating Maximum Achievable Control Technologies (MACTs). These changes are discussed below. The total number of occurrences increased from 399 to 5,119 for MACT standards partially due to the number of MACT standards being delegated increasing from 24 to 40. However, the number of delegations decreased from 124 to 119. The significant increase was largely due to a calculation error in determining the number of straight delegations in the previous ICR. The previous ICR estimated 12 occurrences of straight delegations during the clearance period while we calculated 4,719 occurrences for the upcoming 3-year period. The total number of occurrences decreased for area source standards from 4,177 to 920 due to the number of area source standards decreasing from 40 to 11 and number of delegations dropping from 99 to 79. Second, based on the experience the EPA’s Regional Air Toxics Coordinators have had with the subpart E program, S/L/Ts’ use of the various delegation options has changed for MACTs. Straight Delegation is still the primary delegation mechanism and has significantly increased in frequency since the previous ICR. However, we found that S/L/Ts are using the Rule Adjustment Option and the Rule Substitution Option with greater frequency than previously assumed. Generally, sources do not use the State Program Approval Option. Overall, the respondent hour burden has decreased. While there is an overall increase in the amount of occurrences, the overall burden decreases by 41 percent due to the significant increase in use of the straight delegation option which requires less hours than the other options. VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:24 Jan 19, 2011 Jkt 223001 While mailing costs have increased, we are requesting a decrease in the reporting and recordkeeping cost burden due to an error in the postal costs reported in the previous ICR. Some of the EPA mailing costs were incorrectly included in the sums for respondent costs, thus decreasing the overall costs. Dated: January 12, 2011.
