B. Are there other versions of these rules? We approved an earlier version of the following rules into the SIP: AVAQMD Rule 1151 on April 10, 2000 (65 FR 18901), SBCAPCD Rule 339 on November 13, 1998 (63 FR 63410), SCAQMD Rule 1151 on May 26, 2000 (65 FR 34101), VCAPCD Rule 74.18 on April 19, 2001 (66 FR 20086) and VCAPCD Rule 74.19 on October 25, 1005 (70 FR 61561). C. What is the purpose of the submitted rules? VOCs help produce ground-level ozone and smog, which harm human health and the environment. Section 110(a) of the CAA requires States to submit regulations that control VOC emissions. AVAQMD rule 1151, SBCAPCD rule 339, SCAQMD rule 1151 and VCAPCD rule 74.18 are rules that regulate VOC emissions from automotive and mobile equipment coating operations. VCAPCD rule 74.19 regulates VOC emissions from graphic arts operations. EPA’s technical support documents (TSDs) have more information about these rules. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS II. EPA’s Evaluation and Action A. How is EPA evaluating the rules? Generally, SIP rules must be enforceable (see section 110(a) of the Act), must require Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) for each category of sources covered by a Control Techniques Guidelines (CTG) document as well as each major source in nonattainment areas (see sections 182(a)(2) and (b)(2)), and must not relax existing requirements (see sections 110(l) and 193).

Guidance and policy documents that we use to evaluate enforceability and RACM/RACT requirements consistently include the following: 1. ‘‘Issues Relating to VOC Regulation Cutpoints, Deficiencies, and Deviations; Clarification to Appendix D of November 24, 1987 Federal Register Notice,’’ (Blue Book), notice of availability published in the May 25, 1988 Federal Register. 2. ‘‘Guidance Document for Correcting Common VOC & Other Rule Deficiencies,’’ EPA Region 9, August 21, 2001 (the Little Bluebook). 3. ‘‘State Implementation Plans; General Preamble for the Implementation of Title I of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990,’’ 57 FR 13498 (April 16, 1992); 57 FR 18070 (April 28, 1992). 3. ‘‘Control Technique Guidelines for Emissions from Automobile Refinishing’’ (EPA–450/3–88–009), October 1988. 4.

B. Does the rule meet the evaluation criteria? We believe these rules are consistent with the relevant policy and guidance regarding enforceability, RACM/RACT, and SIP relaxations. The TSDs have more information on our evaluation. C. EPA Recommendations to Further Improve the Rule The TSDs describe additional rule revisions that we recommend for the next time the local agencies modify the rules. However, these recommendations are not currently the basis for rule disapproval. PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Submitted D. Public Comment and Final Action Because EPA believes the submitted rules fulfill all relevant requirements, we are proposing to fully approve them as described in section 110(k)(3) of the Act. We will accept comments from the public on this proposal for the next 30 days. Unless we receive convincing new information during the comment period, we intend to publish a final approval action that will incorporate these rules into the federally enforceable SIP. III. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Under the Clean Air Act, 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 Clean Air Act. 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 E:\FR\FM\29APP1.SGM 29APP1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 82 / Monday, April 29, 2013 / Proposed Rules 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 Clean Air Act; and • does not provide EPA with the discretionary authority to address disproportionate human health or environmental effects with practical, appropriate, and legally permissible methods under Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994). In addition, these rules do 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.

ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: This proposed rule would revise the Incentive Reward Program provisions in § 420.405 and certain provider enrollment requirements in part 424, subpart P. The most significant SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:14 Apr 26, 2013 Jkt 229001 of these revisions include: changing the Incentive Reward Program potential reward amount for information on individuals and entities who are or have engaged in acts or omissions which resulted in the imposition of a sanction from 10 percent of the overpayments recovered in the case or $1,000, whichever is less, to 15 percent of the final amount collected applied to the first $66,000,000 for the sanctionable conduct; expanding the instances in which a felony conviction can serve as a basis for denial or revocation of a provider or supplier’s enrollment; if certain criteria are met, enabling us to deny enrollment if the enrolling provider, supplier, or owner thereof had an ownership relationship with a previously enrolled provider or supplier that had a Medicare debt; enabling us to revoke Medicare billing privileges if we determine that the provider or supplier has a pattern or practice of submitting claims for services that fail to meet Medicare requirements; and limiting the ability of ambulance suppliers to ‘‘backbill’’ for services performed prior to enrollment. We believe this proposed rule would—increase the incentive for individuals to report information on individuals and entities that have or are engaged in sanctionable conduct; improve our ability to detect new fraud schemes; and help us ensure that fraudulent entities and individuals do not enroll in or maintain their enrollment in the Medicare program.

    On October 11, 2012 for AVAQMD Rule 1151, November 18, 2008 for 
SBCAPCD Rule 339, May 13, 2009 for SCAQMD Rule 1151, April 20, 2009 for 
VCAPCD Rule 74.18 and October 24, 2011 for VCAPCD Rule 74.19, EPA 
determined that the submittals met the completeness criteria in 40 CFR 
Part 51 Appendix V, which must be met before formal EPA review.

B. Are there other versions of these rules?

    We approved an earlier version of the following rules into the SIP: 
AVAQMD Rule 1151 on April 10, 2000 (65 FR 18901), SBCAPCD Rule 339 on 
November 13, 1998 (63 FR 63410), SCAQMD Rule 1151 on May 26, 2000 (65 
FR 34101), VCAPCD Rule 74.18 on April 19, 2001 (66 FR 20086) and VCAPCD 
Rule 74.19 on October 25, 1005 (70 FR 61561).

C. What is the purpose of the submitted rules?

    VOCs help produce ground-level ozone and smog, which harm human 
health and the environment. Section 110(a) of the CAA requires States 
to submit regulations that control VOC emissions. AVAQMD rule 1151, 
SBCAPCD rule 339, SCAQMD rule 1151 and VCAPCD rule 74.18 are rules that 
regulate VOC emissions from automotive and mobile equipment coating 
operations. VCAPCD rule 74.19 regulates VOC emissions from graphic arts 
operations. EPA's technical support documents (TSDs) have more 
information about these rules.

II. EPA's Evaluation and Action

A. How is EPA evaluating the rules?

    Generally, SIP rules must be enforceable (see section 110(a) of the 
Act), must require Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) for 
each category of sources covered by a Control Techniques Guidelines 
(CTG) document as well as each major source in nonattainment areas (see 
sections 182(a)(2) and (b)(2)), and must not relax existing 
requirements (see sections 110(l) and 193). AVAQMD, SCQAMD and VCAPCD 
regulate ozone nonattainment areas (see 40 CFR part 81), so Rules 
AVAQMD 1151, SCQAMD 1151, VCAPCD 74.18 and VCAPCD 74.19 must fulfill 
RACT.
    Guidance and policy documents that we use to evaluate 
enforceability and RACM/RACT requirements consistently include the 
following:
    1. ``Issues Relating to VOC Regulation Cutpoints, Deficiencies, and 
Deviations; Clarification to Appendix D of November 24, 1987 Federal 
Register Notice,'' (Blue Book), notice of availability published in the 
May 25, 1988 Federal Register.
    2. ``Guidance Document for Correcting Common VOC & Other Rule 
Deficiencies,'' EPA Region 9, August 21, 2001 (the Little Bluebook).
    3. ``State Implementation Plans; General Preamble for the 
Implementation of Title I of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990,'' 57

B. Does the rule meet the evaluation criteria?

    We believe these rules are consistent with the relevant policy and 
guidance regarding enforceability, RACM/RACT, and SIP relaxations. The 
TSDs have more information on our evaluation.

C. EPA Recommendations to Further Improve the Rule

    The TSDs describe additional rule revisions that we recommend for 
the next time the local agencies modify the rules. However, these 
recommendations are not currently the basis for rule disapproval.

D. Public Comment and Final Action

    Because EPA believes the submitted rules fulfill all relevant 
requirements, we are proposing to fully approve them as described in 
section 110(k)(3) of the Act. We will accept comments from the public 
on this proposal for the next 30 days. Unless we receive convincing new 
information during the comment period, we intend to publish a final 
approval action that will incorporate these rules into the federally 
enforceable SIP.

III. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under the Clean Air Act, 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 Clean Air Act. 
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

[[Page 25013]]

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 Clean Air Act; and
     does not provide EPA with the discretionary authority to 
address disproportionate human health or environmental effects with 
practical, appropriate, and legally permissible methods under Executive 
Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994).
    In addition, these rules do 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.
