ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:01 Aug 16, 2013 Jkt 229001 On February 6, 2013, EPA proposed to approve revisions to the State of Michigan’s Clean Air Act State Implementation Plan (SIP) that Michigan had submitted on March 24, 2009. Michigan’s submittal included revisions to Part 1, Definitions; Part 2, Air Use Approval; and Part 19, New Source Review for Sources Impacting Nonattainment Areas, of the Michigan rules.

EPA is proposing to rescind Michigan’s rule 336.1220 from its SIP. Michigan included this request to rescind this portion of the rule in its March 24, 2009, submittal as part of the Part 19 New Source Review rule approval. The rescission of rule 336.1220 will eliminate having differing nonattainment rules in the State SIP. DATES: Comments must be received on or before September 18, 2013.

With this notice, EPA is withdrawing our proposed action to approve the revisions to Michigan Part 2, Air Use Approval, into the Michigan SIP. The proposed approval of the Michigan Part 1 and Part 19 rules remains as proposed in the February 6, 2013, rulemaking action. EPA is also proposing to rescind Michigan rule 336.1220 from the Michigan SIP. On March 6, 2013, Michigan submitted a letter to EPA regarding their March 24, 2009, submittal and its request to rescind rule 336.1220. This rule contains Michigan’s current permitting rule for major sources of air pollution located in nonattainment areas. This rule is being rescinded and replaced with Part 19 which contains rules reflecting current Federal permitting requirements for major sources of air pollution in nonattainment areas. The new rules reflect all recent changes to Federal nonattainment area New Source Review rules that were promulgated by EPA. On VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:01 Aug 16, 2013 Jkt 229001 December 31, 2002, EPA published revisions to the Federal Prevention of Significant Deterioration and nonattainment area New Source Review regulations in 40 CFR Parts 51 and 52 (67 FR 80186). These revisions are commonly referred to as ‘‘NSR Reform’’ regulations and became effective on March 3, 2003. EPA is now soliciting comments on the proposed rescission of rule 336.1220 from the Michigan 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 Clean Air 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.

Michigan

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: On February 6, 2013, EPA proposed to approve revisions to the 
State of Michigan's Clean Air Act State Implementation Plan (SIP) that 
Michigan had submitted on March 24, 2009. Michigan's submittal included 
revisions to Part 1, Definitions; Part 2, Air Use Approval; and Part 
19, New Source Review for Sources Impacting Nonattainment Areas, of the 
Michigan rules. EPA is revising the February 6, 2013, proposed approval 
to announce that we will not take action on the changes to Part 2 Air 
Use Approval rules and of the Part 2 revision submittals on November 
12, 1993, May 16, 1996, April 3, 1998, September 2, 2003, and March 24, 
2009, at this time. EPA is proposing to rescind Michigan's rule 
336.1220 from its SIP. Michigan included this request to rescind this 
portion of the rule in its March 24, 2009, submittal as part of the 
Part 19 New Source Review rule approval. The rescission of rule 
336.1220 will eliminate having differing nonattainment rules in the

    2. Follow directions--EPA may ask you to respond to specific 
questions or organize comments by referencing a Code of Federal 
Regulations (CFR) part or section number.
    3. Explain why you agree or disagree; suggest alternatives and 
substitute language for your requested changes.

    8. Make sure to submit your comments by the comment period deadline

II. What action is EPA taking?

    On February 6, 2013, EPA proposed to approve revisions to Part 1, 
Definitions; Part 2, Air Use Approval; and Part 19, New Source Review 
for Sources Impacting Nonattainment Areas, into the State of Michigan's 
SIP (78 FR 8485). With this notice, EPA is withdrawing our proposed 
action to approve the revisions to Michigan Part 2, Air Use Approval, 
into the Michigan SIP. The proposed approval of the Michigan Part 1 and 
Part 19 rules remains as proposed in the February 6, 2013, rulemaking 
action.
    EPA is also proposing to rescind Michigan rule 336.1220 from the 
Michigan SIP. On March 6, 2013, Michigan submitted a letter to EPA 
regarding their March 24, 2009, submittal and its request to rescind 
rule 336.1220. This rule contains Michigan's current permitting rule 
for major sources of air pollution located in nonattainment areas. This 
rule is being rescinded and replaced with Part 19 which contains rules 
reflecting current Federal permitting requirements for major sources of 
air pollution in nonattainment areas. The new rules reflect all recent 
changes to Federal nonattainment area New Source Review rules that were 
promulgated by EPA. On December 31, 2002, EPA published revisions to 
the Federal Prevention of Significant Deterioration and nonattainment 
area New Source Review regulations in 40 CFR Parts 51 and 52 (67 FR 
80186). These revisions are commonly referred to as ``NSR Reform'' 
regulations and became effective on March 3, 2003. EPA is now 
soliciting comments on the proposed rescission of rule 336.1220 from 
the Michigan 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 Clean Air 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 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, 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.
