What are the actions EPA is taking? III. Why is EPA taking these actions? IV. What are the effects of these actions? V. Final Action VI. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews I. What is the background for the actions? On December 18, 2009, and supplemented on December 22, 2010, the State of North Carolina, through NC DENR, submitted a request to redesignate the Greensboro Area to attainment for the 1997 Annual PM2.5 NAAQS and for EPA approval of the North Carolina SIP revisions containing a maintenance plan for the Area. In an action published on September 26, 2011 (76 FR 59345), EPA proposed approval of North Carolina’s plan for maintaining the 1997 Annual PM2.5 NAAQS, deemed the new MVEBs for Davidson and Guilford Counties in the Greensboro Area adequate for the purposes of transportation conformity on May 2, 2011 (76 FR 24474). As stated in the September 26, 2011, proposal, this redesignation addresses the Greensboro Area’s status solely with respect to the 1997 Annual PM2.5 NAAQS, for which designations were finalized on January 5, 2005 (70 FR 944), and as supplemented on April 14, 2005 (70 FR 19844). EPA reviewed PM2.5 monitoring data TABLE 1—DAVIDSON COUNTY MVEBS from ambient PM2.5 monitoring stations in the Greensboro Area for the PM2.5 [kg/yr] seasons from 2007–2009. These data have been quality-assured and are Conformity 2011 2021 recorded in Air Quality System (AQS). MVEB The annual arithmetic mean PM2.5 NOX .................. 4,086,413 2,148,938 concentrations for 2006–2009 and the PM2.5 ................. 153,313 153,313 3-year averages of these values (i.e., design values) are summarized in Table TABLE 2—GUILFORD COUNTY MVEBS 3. EPA has reviewed more recent data which indicate that the Greensboro Area [kg/year] continues to attain the 1997 PM2.5 NAAQS. The design values for 2007– Conformity 2011 2021 2009 and 2008–2010 are also included MVEB in Table 3 and demonstrate that the NOX .................. 11,133,605 6,309,650 Greensboro Area continues to meet the PM2.5 ................. 421,841 421,841 PM2.5 NAAQS and that the ambient concentrations of PM2.5 are continuing In its September 26, 2011, proposed to decrease in the Area. Preliminary action, EPA noted that the adequacy monitoring data for the 2011 PM2.5 public comment period on these MVEBs season indicate that the Area is (as contained in North Carolina’s continuing to attain the 1997 Annual submittal) began on November 23, 2010, PM2.5 NAAQS based on data from 2009– and closed on December 23, 2010. No 2011. These preliminary data are comments were received during the available in the docket for today’s action public comment period. Thus, EPA although they are not yet certified. including the emissions inventory submitted pursuant to CAA section 172(c)(3) and the NOX and PM2.5 MVEBs for Davidson and Guilford Counties in the Greensboro Area as contained in the maintenance plan. At that time, EPA also proposed to approve the redesignation of the Greensboro Area to attainment. Additional background for today’s action is set forth in EPA’s September 26, 2011, proposal. The MVEBs, specified in kilograms per year (kg/yr), included in the maintenance plan are as follows: TABLE 3—DESIGN VALUE CONCENTRATIONS FOR THE GREENSBORO 1997 ANNUAL PM2.5.

Guilford ....................... Guilford ....................... Lexington ................... Mendenhall ................ Colfax ........................ II. What are the actions EPA is taking? In today’s rulemaking, EPA is approving: (1) North Carolina’s emissions inventory which was submitted pursuant to CAA section 172(c)(3); (2) North Carolina’s 1997 Annual PM2.5 maintenance plan (such approval being one of the CAA criteria VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:39 Nov 17, 2011 Jkt 226001 37–057–0002 37–081–0013 37–035–0014 2007–2009 2008–2010 14.5 13.0 N/A 13.0 11.3 N/A 12.1 10.4 10.8 for redesignation to attainment status) for the Greensboro Area, including MVEBs; and (3) North Carolina’s redesignation request to change the legal designation of the Greensboro Area from nonattainment to attainment for the 1997 Annual PM2.5 NAAQS. The maintenance plan is designed to PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 demonstrate that the Greensboro Area will continue to attain the 1997 Annual PM2.5 NAAQS through 2021. EPA’s approval of the redesignation request is based on EPA’s determination that the Greensboro Area meets the criteria for redesignation set forth in CAA, sections 107(d)(3)(E) and 175A, including EPA’s E:\FR\FM\18NOR1.SGM 18NOR1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 223 / Friday, November 18, 2011 / Rules and Regulations emcdonald on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with RULES determination that the Greensboro Area has attained the 1997 Annual PM2.5 NAAQS. EPA’s analyses of North Carolina’s redesignation request, emissions inventory, and maintenance plan are described in detail in the September 26, 2011, proposed rule (76 FR 59345). Consistent with the CAA, the maintenance plan that EPA is approving also includes 2011 and 2021 MVEBs for NOX and PM2.5 for Davidson and Guilford Counties in the Greensboro Area. In this action, EPA is approving these NOX and PM2.5 MVEBs for the purposes of transportation conformity. For required regional emissions analysis years beyond 2011 and prior to 2021, the applicable budgets will be the new 2011 MVEBs. For required regional emissions analysis years that involve 2021 or beyond, the applicable budgets will be the new 2021 MVEBs. EPA is also correcting an inadvertent typographical error for the citation (in EPA’s September 26, 2011, proposed rulemaking) associated with EPA’s adequacy finding for the NOX and PM2.5 MVEB for Davidson and Guilford Counties. In EPA’s September 26, 2011, proposed rulemaking, EPA provides the citation for the adequacy determination for the NOX and PM2.5 MVEBs as 76 FR 24472 in the last paragraph of the section entitled ‘‘VIII. What Is the Status of EPA’s Adequacy Determination for the Proposed PM2.5 and NOX MVEBs for 2011 and 2021 for the Greensboro Area?’’ and in the second to last paragraph in the section entitled ‘‘X. Proposed Actions on the Redesignation Request and Maintenance Plan SIP Revisions Including Approval of the PM2.5 and NOX MVEBs for 2011 and 2021 for the Greensboro Area.’’ The correct citation is 76 FR 24474. Through this action, EPA is making this correction. III. Why is EPA taking these actions? EPA has determined that the Greensboro Area has attained the 1997 Annual PM2.5 NAAQS and has also determined that all other criteria for the redesignation of the Greensboro Area from nonattainment to attainment of the 1997 Annual PM2.5 NAAQS have been met. See CAA section 107(d)(3)(E). One of those requirements is that the Greensboro Area has an approved plan demonstrating maintenance of the 1997 Annual PM2.5 NAAQS. EPA is also taking final action to approve the maintenance plan for the Greensboro Area as meeting the requirements of sections 175A and 107(d)(3)(E) of the CAA. In addition, EPA is approving the emissions inventory as meeting the requirements of section 172(c)(3) of the VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:24 Nov 17, 2011 Jkt 226001 CAA. Finally, EPA is approving the new NOX and PM2.5 MVEBs for the years 2011 and 2021 as contained in North Carolina’s maintenance plan for Davidson and Guilford Counties in the Greensboro Area because these MVEBs are consistent with maintenance of the 1997 Annual PM2.5 standard in the Greensboro Area. The detailed rationale for EPA’s findings and actions are set forth in the proposed rulemaking and in other discussion in this final rulemaking. IV. What are the effects of these actions? Approval of the redesignation request changes the legal designation of Davidson and Guilford Counties in their entireties from nonattainment to attainment for the 1997 Annual PM2.5 NAAQS. EPA is modifying the regulatory table in 40 CFR 81.334 to reflect a designation of attainment for these full and partial counties. EPA is also approving, as a revision to the North Carolina SIP, North Carolina’s plan for maintaining the 1997 Annual PM2.5 NAAQS in the Greensboro Area through 2021. The maintenance plan includes contingency measures to remedy possible future violations of the 1997 Annual PM2.5 NAAQS and establishes NOX and PM2.5 MVEBs for the years 2011 and 2021 for the Greensboro Area. Additionally, this action approves the emissions inventory for the Greensboro Area pursuant to section 172(c)(3) of the CAA. V. Final Action EPA is taking final action to approve the redesignation and change the legal designation of Davidson and Guilford Counties in their entireties from nonattainment to attainment for the 1997 Annual PM2.5 NAAQS. EPA is also approving into the North Carolina SIP the 1997Annual PM2.5 maintenance plan for the Greensboro Area. For Davidson County, the maintenance plan includes the new MVEBs of 4,086,413 kg/yr of NOX and 153,313 kg/yr of PM2.5 for 2011 and 2,148,938 kg/yr of NOX and 153,313 kg/yr of PM2.5 for 2021. Further, for Guilford County, the maintenance plan includes the new MVEBs of 11,133,605 kg/yr of NOX and 421,841 kg/yr of PM2.5 for 2011 and 6,309,650 kg/yr of NOX and 421,841 kg/ yr of PM2.5 for 2021. Additionally, EPA is approving the 2008 emissions inventory for the Greensboro Area pursuant to section 172(c)(3) of the CAA. In a previous action, EPA found the new Greensboro Area MVEBs adequate for the purposes of transportation conformity (76 FR 24474, May 2, 2011). Within 24 months PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 71457 from the effective date of EPA’s adequacy finding for the MVEBs, the transportation partners are required to demonstrate conformity to the new PM2.5 and NOX MVEBs pursuant to 40 CFR 93.104(e). VI. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Under the CAA, redesignation of an area to attainment and the accompanying approval of the maintenance plan under CAA section 107(d)(3)(E) are actions that affect the status of geographical area and do not impose any additional regulatory requirements on sources beyond those required by state law. A redesignation to attainment does not in and of itself impose any new requirements, but rather results in the application of requirements contained in the CAA for areas that have been redesignated to attainment. Moreover, 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 these reasons, these actions: • Are 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); • Do not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.); • Are 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.); • Do 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); • Do not have Federalism implications as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999); • Are not an economically significant regulatory action based on health or safety risks subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997); • Are not significant regulatory action subject to Executive Order 13211 (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001); • Are not subject to requirements of Section 12(d) of the National E:\FR\FM\18NOR1.SGM 18NOR1 71458 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 223 / Friday, November 18, 2011 / Rules and Regulations 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 • Do 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 final 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, 40 CFR Part 81 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 17, 2012. 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).) Environmental protection, Air pollution control, National parks. Dated: November 7, 2011.

Summary of Petitioned-for Tolerance In the Federal Register of October 27, 2010 (75 FR 66092) (FRL–8848–3), EPA issued a notice pursuant to section 408(d)(3) of FFDCA, 21 U.S.C. 346a(d)(3), announcing the filing of a pesticide petition (PP 0F7765) by BASF Corporation, 26 Davis Drive, Research Triangle Park, NC 27709. The petition requested that 40 CFR 180.547 be amended by establishing tolerances for residues of the plant growth regulator prohexadione calcium, calcium, 3oxido-5-oxo-4-propionylcyclohex-3enecarboxylate, in or on sweet cherries at 0.50 parts per million (ppm). That notice referenced a summary of the petition prepared by BASF Corporation, the registrant, which is available in the docket, http://www.regulations.gov. There were no comments received in response to the notice of filing for these changes are explained in Unit IV.D. Based upon review of the data supporting the petition, EPA has lowered the tolerance from 0.5 ppm to 0.4 p.m. The reason for these changes are explained in Unit IV.C III. Aggregate Risk Assessment and Determination of Safety Section 408(b)(2)(A)(i) of FFDCA allows EPA to establish a tolerance (the legal limit for a pesticide chemical residue in or on a food) only if EPA determines that the tolerance is ‘‘safe.’’ Section 408(b)(2)(A)(ii) of FFDCA defines ‘‘safe’’ to mean that ‘‘there is a reasonable certainty that no harm will E:\FR\FM\18NOR1.SGM 18NOR1

Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans and Designation 
of Areas for Air Quality Planning Purposes; North Carolina: 
Redesignation of the Greensboro-Winston-Salem-High Point 1997 Annual 
Fine Particulate Matter Nonattainment Area to Attainment

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Final rule; correcting amendment.

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

SUMMARY: EPA is taking final action to approve a request submitted on 
December 18, 2009, and supplemented on December 22, 2010, from the 
State of North Carolina, through the North Carolina Department of 
Environment and Natural Resources (NC DENR), Division of Air Quality 
(DAQ), to redesignate the Greensboro-Winston-Salem-High Point fine 
particulate matter (PM2.5) nonattainment area (hereafter the 
``Greensboro Area'' or ``Area'') to attainment for the 1997 Annual 
PM2.5 National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). The 
Greensboro Area is comprised of Davidson and Guilford Counties in their 
entireties. EPA's approval of the redesignation request is based on the 
determination that the State of North Carolina has met the criteria for 
redesignation to attainment set forth in the Clean Air Act (CAA or 
Act), including the determination that the Greensboro Area has attained 
the 1997 Annual PM2.5 NAAQS by its applicable attainment 
date of April 5, 2010. Additionally, EPA is approving a revision to the 
North Carolina State Implementation Plan (SIP) to include the 1997 
Annual PM2.5 maintenance plan for the Greensboro Area that 
contains the new 2011 and 2021 motor vehicle emission budgets (MVEBs) 
for nitrogen oxides (NOX) and PM2.5 for both 
Davidson and Guilford Counties. This action also approves the emissions 
inventory submitted with the maintenance plan. Further, EPA is 
correcting a typographical error for the citation associated with a 
previous adequacy finding the Agency made for the NOX and 
PM2.5 MVEBs for both Davidson and Guilford Counties.

DATES: Effective Date:
    This rule will be effective December 19, 2011.

I. What is the background for the actions?

    On December 18, 2009, and supplemented on December 22, 2010, the 
State of North Carolina, through NC DENR, submitted a request to 
redesignate the Greensboro Area to attainment for the 1997 Annual 
PM2.5 NAAQS and for EPA approval of the North Carolina SIP 
revisions containing a maintenance plan for the Area. In an action 
published on September 26, 2011 (76 FR 59345), EPA proposed approval of 
North Carolina's plan for maintaining the 1997 Annual PM2.5 
NAAQS, including the emissions inventory submitted pursuant to CAA 
section 172(c)(3) and the NOX and PM2.5 MVEBs for 
Davidson and Guilford Counties in the Greensboro Area as contained in 
the maintenance plan. At that time, EPA also proposed to approve the 
redesignation of the Greensboro Area to attainment. Additional 
background for today's action is set forth in EPA's September 26, 2011, 
proposal.
    The MVEBs, specified in kilograms per year (kg/yr), included in the 
maintenance plan are as follows:

PM2.5.........................................      421,841      421,841
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In its September 26, 2011, proposed action, EPA noted that the 
adequacy public comment period on these MVEBs (as contained in North 
Carolina's submittal) began on November 23, 2010, and closed on 
December 23, 2010. No comments were received during the public comment 
period. Thus, EPA deemed the new MVEBs for Davidson and Guilford 
Counties in the Greensboro Area adequate for the purposes of 
transportation conformity on May 2, 2011 (76 FR 24474).
    As stated in the September 26, 2011, proposal, this redesignation 
addresses the Greensboro Area's status solely with respect to the 1997 
Annual PM2.5 NAAQS, for which designations were finalized on 
January 5, 2005 (70 FR 944), and as supplemented on April 14, 2005 (70 
FR 19844).
    EPA reviewed PM2.5 monitoring data from ambient 
PM2.5 monitoring stations in the Greensboro Area for the 
PM2.5 seasons from 2007-2009. These data have been quality-
assured and are recorded in Air Quality System (AQS). The annual 
arithmetic mean PM2.5 concentrations for 2006-2009 and the 
3-year averages of these values (i.e., design values) are summarized in 
Table 3. EPA has reviewed more recent data which indicate that the 
Greensboro Area continues to attain the 1997 PM2.5 NAAQS. 
The design values for 2007-2009 and 2008-2010 are also included in 
Table 3 and demonstrate that the Greensboro Area continues to meet the 
PM2.5 NAAQS and that the ambient concentrations of 
PM2.5 are continuing to decrease in the Area. Preliminary 
monitoring data for the 2011 PM2.5 season indicate that the 
Area is continuing to attain the 1997 Annual PM2.5 NAAQS 
based on data from 2009-2011. These preliminary data are available in 
the docket for today's action although they are not yet certified.

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

II. What are the actions EPA is taking?

    In today's rulemaking, EPA is approving: (1) North Carolina's 
emissions inventory which was submitted pursuant to CAA section 
172(c)(3); (2) North Carolina's 1997 Annual PM2.5 
maintenance plan (such approval being one of the CAA criteria for 
redesignation to attainment status) for the Greensboro Area, including 
MVEBs; and (3) North Carolina's redesignation request to change the 
legal designation of the Greensboro Area from nonattainment to 
attainment for the 1997 Annual PM2.5 NAAQS. The maintenance 
plan is designed to demonstrate that the Greensboro Area will continue 
to attain the 1997 Annual PM2.5 NAAQS through 2021. EPA's 
approval of the redesignation request is based on EPA's determination 
that the Greensboro Area meets the criteria for redesignation set forth 
in CAA, sections 107(d)(3)(E) and 175A, including EPA's

[[Page 71457]]

determination that the Greensboro Area has attained the 1997 Annual 
PM2.5 NAAQS. EPA's analyses of North Carolina's 
redesignation request, emissions inventory, and maintenance plan are 
described in detail in the September 26, 2011, proposed rule (76 FR 
59345).
    Consistent with the CAA, the maintenance plan that EPA is approving 
also includes 2011 and 2021 MVEBs for NOX and 
PM2.5 for Davidson and Guilford Counties in the Greensboro 
Area. In this action, EPA is approving these NOX and 
PM2.5 MVEBs for the purposes of transportation conformity. 
For required regional emissions analysis years beyond 2011 and prior to 
2021, the applicable budgets will be the new 2011 MVEBs. For required 
regional emissions analysis years that involve 2021 or beyond, the 
applicable budgets will be the new 2021 MVEBs.
    EPA is also correcting an inadvertent typographical error for the 
citation (in EPA's September 26, 2011, proposed rulemaking) associated 
with EPA's adequacy finding for the NOX and PM2.5 
MVEB for Davidson and Guilford Counties. In EPA's September 26, 2011, 
proposed rulemaking, EPA provides the citation for the adequacy 
determination for the NOX and PM2.5 MVEBs as 76 
FR 24472 in the last paragraph of the section entitled ``VIII. What Is 
the Status of EPA's Adequacy Determination for the Proposed 
PM2.5 and NOX MVEBs for 2011 and 2021 for the 
Greensboro Area?'' and in the second to last paragraph in the section 
entitled ``X. Proposed Actions on the Redesignation Request and 
Maintenance Plan SIP Revisions Including Approval of the 
PM2.5 and NOX MVEBs for 2011 and 2021 for the 
Greensboro Area.'' The correct citation is 76 FR 24474. Through this 
action, EPA is making this correction.

III. Why is EPA taking these actions?

    EPA has determined that the Greensboro Area has attained the 1997 
Annual PM2.5 NAAQS and has also determined that all other 
criteria for the redesignation of the Greensboro Area from 
nonattainment to attainment of the 1997 Annual PM2.5 NAAQS 
have been met. See CAA section 107(d)(3)(E). One of those requirements 
is that the Greensboro Area has an approved plan demonstrating 
maintenance of the 1997 Annual PM2.5 NAAQS. EPA is also 
taking final action to approve the maintenance plan for the Greensboro 
Area as meeting the requirements of sections 175A and 107(d)(3)(E) of 
the CAA. In addition, EPA is approving the emissions inventory as 
meeting the requirements of section 172(c)(3) of the CAA. Finally, EPA 
is approving the new NOX and PM2.5 MVEBs for the 
years 2011 and 2021 as contained in North Carolina's maintenance plan 
for Davidson and Guilford Counties in the Greensboro Area because these 
MVEBs are consistent with maintenance of the 1997 Annual 
PM2.5 standard in the Greensboro Area. The detailed 
rationale for EPA's findings and actions are set forth in the proposed 
rulemaking and in other discussion in this final rulemaking.

IV. What are the effects of these actions?

    Approval of the redesignation request changes the legal designation 
of Davidson and Guilford Counties in their entireties from 
nonattainment to attainment for the 1997 Annual PM2.5 NAAQS. 
EPA is modifying the regulatory table in 40 CFR 81.334 to reflect a 
designation of attainment for these full and partial counties. EPA is 
also approving, as a revision to the North Carolina SIP, North 
Carolina's plan for maintaining the 1997 Annual PM2.5 NAAQS 
in the Greensboro Area through 2021. The maintenance plan includes 
contingency measures to remedy possible future violations of the 1997 
Annual PM2.5 NAAQS and establishes NOX and 
PM2.5 MVEBs for the years 2011 and 2021 for the Greensboro 
Area. Additionally, this action approves the emissions inventory for 
the Greensboro Area pursuant to section 172(c)(3) of the CAA.

V. Final Action

    EPA is taking final action to approve the redesignation and change 
the legal designation of Davidson and Guilford Counties in their 
entireties from nonattainment to attainment for the 1997 Annual 
PM2.5 NAAQS. EPA is also approving into the North Carolina 
SIP the 1997Annual PM2.5 maintenance plan for the Greensboro 
Area. For Davidson County, the maintenance plan includes the new MVEBs 
of 4,086,413 kg/yr of NOX and 153,313 kg/yr of 
PM2.5 for 2011 and 2,148,938 kg/yr of NOX and 
153,313 kg/yr of PM2.5 for 2021. Further, for Guilford 
County, the maintenance plan includes the new MVEBs of 11,133,605 kg/yr 
of NOX and 421,841 kg/yr of PM2.5 for 2011 and 
6,309,650 kg/yr of NOX and 421,841 kg/yr of PM2.5 
for 2021.
    Additionally, EPA is approving the 2008 emissions inventory for the 
Greensboro Area pursuant to section 172(c)(3) of the CAA. In a previous 
action, EPA found the new Greensboro Area MVEBs adequate for the 
purposes of transportation conformity (76 FR 24474, May 2, 2011). 
Within 24 months from the effective date of EPA's adequacy finding for 
the MVEBs, the transportation partners are required to demonstrate 
conformity to the new PM2.5 and NOX MVEBs 
pursuant to 40 CFR 93.104(e).

VI. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under the CAA, redesignation of an area to attainment and the 
accompanying approval of the maintenance plan under CAA section 
107(d)(3)(E) are actions that affect the status of geographical area 
and do not impose any additional regulatory requirements on sources 
beyond those required by state law. A redesignation to attainment does 
not in and of itself impose any new requirements, but rather results in 
the application of requirements contained in the CAA for areas that 
have been redesignated to attainment. Moreover, 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 these reasons, these actions:
     Are 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);
     Do not impose an information collection burden under the 
provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.);
     Are 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.);
     Do 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);
     Do not have Federalism implications as specified in 
Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999);
     Are not an economically significant regulatory action 
based on health or safety risks subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 
19885, April 23, 1997);
     Are not significant regulatory action subject to Executive 
Order 13211 (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001);
     Are not subject to requirements of Section 12(d) of the 
National

[[Page 71458]]

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
     Do 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 final 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 17, 2012. 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).)
