Executive Order 13045: Protection of Children from Environmental Health and Safety Risks—This action is not subject to Executive Order 13045 because it is not economically significant and it is not based on health or safety risks; 8. Executive Order 13211: Actions That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use: This action is not subject to Executive Order 13211 because it is not a significant regulatory action as defined in Executive Order 12866; 9. National Technology Transfer Advancement Act: This provision directs EPA to use voluntary consensus standards in its regulatory activities unless to do so would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impracticable. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., material specifications, test methods, sampling procedures, and business practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards and bodies. EPA approves State programs so long as the State programs adequately meet the criteria set out in 40 CFR part 258. It would be inconsistent with applicable law for EPA, in its review of a State program, to require the use of any particular voluntary consensus standard in place of another standard that meets the 40 CFR part 258 criteria. Thus, the National Technology Transfer Advancement Act does not apply to this action; 10. Congressional Review Act: EPA will submit a report containing this action and other information required by the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.) to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication in the Federal Register.

Background On October 23, 2012 (77 FR 64787), EPA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPR) for the State of Maryland. The NPR proposed approval of revisions to Maryland regulations for the control of emissions of VOC from seven categories of sources covered by a CTG. The State of Maryland submitted the formal SIP revision (Revision No. 12–03) on April 4, 2012. II. Summary of SIP Revision On April 5, 2012, EPA received a SIP revision submittal from the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) which addressed sources of VOC emissions covered by EPA’s CTGs for the following seven source categories: (1) Paper, film, and foil coatings; (2) industrial cleaning solvents; (3) miscellaneous metal and plastic parts coatings; (4) large appliance coatings; (5) offset lithographic printing and letterpress printing; (6) flat wood paneling coatings; and (7) flexible package printing. This SIP revision submittal included amended Regulation .04 ‘‘Testing and Monitoring’’ under COMAR 26.11.01 ‘‘General Administrative Provisions’’ (COMAR 26.11.01.04) and Regulation .02 ‘‘Applicability, Determining Compliance, Reporting and General Requirements’’ under COMAR 26.11.19 ‘‘Volatile Organic Compounds from Specific Processes’’ (COMAR 26.11.19.02). These amendments pertain to the adoption of various test methods, calculations methods, work practice standards and exemptions which make MDE’s regulations more consistent with EPA’s CTGs for these seven source categories. An explanation of the CAA’s reasonably available control technology (RACT) requirements for the 1997 8hour ozone NAAQS as they apply to Maryland, the specific details of the amendments to COMAR 26.11.01.04 and COMAR 26.11.19.02 and EPA’s rationale for approving this SIP revision were provided in the NPR and will not be restated here. E:\FR\FM\25JAR1.SGM 25JAR1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 17 / Friday, January 25, 2013 / Rules and Regulations Only one set of comments was received during the comment period established by EPA’s October 23, 2012 NPR. A summary of the comment and EPA’s response is provided in Section III of this document. III. Summary of Public Comment and EPA Response These comments supported approving into the SIP MDE amendments to COMAR 26.11.01.04 and COMAR 26.11.19.02. Comment: In sum, the comments stated that these revisions to the Maryland SIP controlling VOC emissions from these seven different industries should be approved. The commenter agrees with all the amendments and stated that the ‘‘EPA should, without question, approve all of them. The amendments made to COMAR by the MDE only make the 7 industries safer and update their practices with VOC to be more in accordance with EPA’s updated CTG for them under the CAA.’’ Response: EPA appreciates the support for this action. IV. Final Action EPA is approving as a revision to the Maryland SIP the amendments to COMAR 26.11.01.04 and COMAR 26.11.19.02 pertaining to the adoption of various test methods, calculations methods, work practice standards and exemptions for seven CTG source categories. V. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews A. General Requirements srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with Under the CAA, the Administrator is required to approve a SIP submission that complies with the provisions of the CAA 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:07 Jan 24, 2013 Jkt 229001 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. 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 action and other PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 5291 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). C. Petitions for Judicial Review 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 March 26, 2013. 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 concerning Maryland’s adoption of various test methods, calculations methods, work practice standards and exemptions in accordance with CTGs for VOC RACT may not be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    On October 23, 2012 (77 FR 64787), EPA published a notice of 
proposed rulemaking (NPR) for the State of Maryland. The NPR proposed 
approval of revisions to Maryland regulations for the control of 
emissions of VOC from seven categories of sources covered by a CTG. The 
State of Maryland submitted the formal SIP revision (Revision No. 12-
03) on April 4, 2012.

II. Summary of SIP Revision

    On April 5, 2012, EPA received a SIP revision submittal from the 
Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) which addressed sources of 
VOC emissions covered by EPA's CTGs for the following seven source 
categories: (1) Paper, film, and foil coatings; (2) industrial cleaning 
solvents; (3) miscellaneous metal and plastic parts coatings; (4) large 
appliance coatings; (5) offset lithographic printing and letterpress 
printing; (6) flat wood paneling coatings; and (7) flexible package 
printing. This SIP revision submittal included amended Regulation .04 
``Testing and Monitoring'' under COMAR 26.11.01 ``General 
Administrative Provisions'' (COMAR 26.11.01.04) and Regulation .02 
``Applicability, Determining Compliance, Reporting and General 
Requirements'' under COMAR 26.11.19 ``Volatile Organic Compounds from 
Specific Processes'' (COMAR 26.11.19.02). These amendments pertain to 
the adoption of various test methods, calculations methods, work 
practice standards and exemptions which make MDE's regulations more 
consistent with EPA's CTGs for these seven source categories.
    An explanation of the CAA's reasonably available control technology 
(RACT) requirements for the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS as they apply to 
Maryland, the specific details of the amendments to COMAR 26.11.01.04 
and COMAR 26.11.19.02 and EPA's rationale for approving this SIP 
revision were provided in the NPR and will not be restated here.

[[Page 5291]]

    Only one set of comments was received during the comment period 
established by EPA's October 23, 2012 NPR. A summary of the comment and 
EPA's response is provided in Section III of this document.

III. Summary of Public Comment and EPA Response

    These comments supported approving into the SIP MDE amendments to 
COMAR 26.11.01.04 and COMAR 26.11.19.02.
    Comment:
    In sum, the comments stated that these revisions to the Maryland 
SIP controlling VOC emissions from these seven different industries 
should be approved. The commenter agrees with all the amendments and 
stated that the ``EPA should, without question, approve all of them. 
The amendments made to COMAR by the MDE only make the 7 industries 
safer and update their practices with VOC to be more in accordance with 
EPA's updated CTG for them under the CAA.''
    Response:
    EPA appreciates the support for this action.

IV. Final Action

    EPA is approving as a revision to the Maryland SIP the amendments 
to COMAR 26.11.01.04 and COMAR 26.11.19.02 pertaining to the adoption 
of various test methods, calculations methods, work practice standards 
and exemptions for seven CTG source categories.

V. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

A. General Requirements

    Under the CAA, the Administrator is required to approve a SIP 
submission that complies with the provisions of the CAA 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.

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 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).

C. Petitions for Judicial Review

    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 March 26, 2013. 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 concerning Maryland's adoption of various test 
methods, calculations methods, work practice standards and exemptions 
in accordance with CTGs for VOC RACT may not be challenged later in 
proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2).)
