Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 34 / Wednesday, February 20, 2013 / Rules and Regulations 7. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531–1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. 8. Taking of Private Property This rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. 9. Civil Justice Reform This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. 10. Protection of Children We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and does not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect children. 11. Indian Tribal Governments This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it does 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. wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES 12. Energy Effects This action is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. 13. Technical Standards This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. 14. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:23 Feb 19, 2013 Jkt 229001 Management Directive 023–01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA)(42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have determined that this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule involves establishing an anchorage area. This rule is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(f) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. An environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination and a Categorical Exclusion Determination are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this rule. List of Subjects in 33 CFR Part 110 Anchorage grounds.

What program changes is EPA approving? III. What action is EPA taking? IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews As additions to Ohio’s State Implementation Plan (SIP) under the Clean Air Act, EPA is approving six Permit-by-Rule (PBR) provisions, a Permit to Install and Operate (PTIO) program, two permanent exemptions from the Permit to Install (PTI) requirement, and a General Permit program. The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA) requested these rule revisions to make its air pollution permit program more efficient. Approving these additions will make the PBRs, PTIOs, and general permits Federally enforceable. Because these rule revisions will make Ohio’s air permit program more efficient while continuing to protect human health and the environment, EPA approves the revisions. DATES: This final rule is effective on March 22, 2013. ADDRESSES: EPA has established a docket for this action under Docket ID I. What does this document address? This document addresses requests from Ohio to incorporate the following rules into the Ohio SIP.

PBR and Permanent Exemption Provisions Ohio’s Federally approved construction program, Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) 3745–31 (‘‘Permits to Install New Sources of Pollution’’) provides the authority for OEPA to issue PTIs to new sources of air pollution or modifications to existing sources of air pollution. For attainment areas, the program was conditionally approved into Ohio’s SIP on October 10, 2001 (66 FR 51570) and fully approved on January 22, 2003 (68 FR 2909). For nonattainment areas, the program was fully approved on January 10, 2003 (68 FR 1366). Included in this program at OAC 3745–31–03 (‘‘Permit to install exemptions’’) are exemptions from the PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 requirement to obtain a PTI before constructing or modifying a source of air pollution. The types of exemptions include permanent exemptions, Federalbased exemptions, discretionary exemptions, and PBR exemptions (exempting certain sources from the PTI requirement as long as they comply with the relevant provisions of the PBR rule). On April 24, 2006, EPA received a request from OEPA to approve the addition of two permanent exemptions and six PBR provisions to the SIP. 2. PTIO and General Permit Programs Prior to the rulemaking, a minor source (that is, a source not subject to Title V of the Clean Air Act) in Ohio would be issued both a PTI under OAC 3745–31 and a Permit to Operate (PTO) under OAC 3745–35 (‘‘Air Permits to Operate and Variances’’). Ohio is now combining both permit programs into a new PTIO program. Under the PTIO program, a minor source would be issued one PTIO instead of a PTI and a PTO. On June 30, 2008, the state regulations to implement the PTIO program became effective and OAC 3745–35 was rescinded. On July 18, 2008, OEPA submitted to EPA a request to approve the addition of the PTIO program and a General Permit program to the SIP. The changes to Ohio’s SIP involve the modification of various parts of OAC 3745–31, the removal of OAC 3745–35, and the addition of OAC 3745–31–29 to enable the issuance of Federally enforceable general PTIs and general PTIOs. On October 1, 2012, EPA approved the aforementioned PBR, permanent exemption, PTIO, and General Permit program provisions (77 FR 59751) as a revision to Ohio’s SIP. However, the provisions included the following terms which EPA had not intended to act on: • The SIP revision classified municipal incinerators capable of charging more than 250 tons of refuse per day as having a major stationary source emission threshold of 100 tons per year or more. OAC 3745–31– 01(LLL)(2)(a)(ix). • The SIP revision allowed OEPA Director’s discretion for complying with the public participation notification requirements for Federal Land Managers. OAC 3745–31–06(H)(2)(d). • The SIP revision allowed Director’s discretion and specific exemptions with regard to preconstruction activities. OAC 3745–31–33. EPA withdrew its approval on November 23, 2012 (77 FR 70121). This document approves the PBR, permanent exemption, PTIO, and General Permit E:\FR\FM\20FER1.SGM 20FER1
