EPA is taking final action to approve changes to the Georgia State Implementation Plan (SIP) submitted by the State of Georgia, through the Georgia Department of Natural Resources' Environmental Protection Division (EPD) to EPA, on September 26, 2006 (with a clarifying revision submitted on November 6, 2006), and July 26, 2012. The September 26, 2006, SIP submission makes multiple changes to the Georgia SIP including the State's permit exemption provisions. The July 26, 2012, submission includes changes to Georgia's New Source Review (NSR), Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) program to incorporate by reference (IBR) federal PSD requirements regarding the implementation of the fine particulate matter (PM2.5) national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) and the deferral of, until July 21, 2014, PSD applicability to biogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from bioenergy and other biogenic stationary sources as well as additional air quality rule revisions. EPA is approving portions of these submittals as revisions to Georgia's SIP because the Agency has determined that they are consistent with the Clean Air Act (CAA or Act) and EPA regulations regarding NSR permitting. EPA is also responding to comments received on the January 14, 2012, proposed rulemaking.

Document Number: 2013-07897
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-04-09
Agency: Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of the Interior
We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), announce a 90-day finding on a petition to list the Oregon Cascades-California population and Black Hills population of the black-backed woodpecker (Picoides arcticus) under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act), as subspecies or distinct population segments (DPSs) that are endangered or threatened, and to designate critical habitat concurrent with listing. Based on our review, we find that the petition presents substantial scientific or commercial information indicating that listing the Oregon Cascades-California and Black Hills populations of the black-backed woodpecker as subspecies or DPSs may be warranted. Therefore, with the publication of this notice, we are notifying the public that, when funds become available, we will be initiating a review of the status of the two populations to determine if listing either or both the Oregon Cascades-California population and the Black Hills population as either subspecies or DPSs is warranted. To ensure that this status review is comprehensive, we are requesting scientific and commercial data and other information regarding these two populations. Based on the status review, we will issue a 12-month finding on the petition, which will address whether the petitioned action is warranted, as provided in section 4(b)(3)(B) of the Act.
