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 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 the establishment of a safety zone and, therefore it is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(g) 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.

EPA is taking a direct final action to approve portions of three revisions to the Texas State Implementation Plan (SIP) concerning the Texas Federal Operating Permits Program. EPA has determined that these SIP revisions, submitted on December 17, 1999, October 4, 2001 and August 11, 2003, comply with the Clean Air Act and EPA regulations and are consistent with EPA policies. This action is being taken under section 110 of the Act. We are publishing this rule without prior proposal because we view this as a noncontroversial amendment and anticipate no relevant adverse comments. As explained in our accompanying technical support documents (TSD), we are finding this action noncontroversial because the provisions for the Stringency Determination for Federal Operating Permits at 30 TAC 101.28 have been in effect in Texas since December 23, 1999, and the minor permit revision procedures for the Texas Federal Operating Permit Program have been in effect in Texas since June 3, 2001 and December 11, 2002, without any negative impact to attainment or maintenance of any National Ambient Air Quality Standard in Texas. However, in the proposed rules section of this Federal Register publication, we are publishing a separate document that will serve as the proposal to approve the SIP revision if relevant adverse comments are received. This rule will be effective on November 12, 2013 without further notice unless we receive relevant adverse comment by October 10, 2013. If we receive relevant adverse comments, we will publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register informing the public that the rule will not take effect. We will address all public comments in a subsequent final rule based on the proposed rule. We will not institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting must do so now. Please note that if we receive adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the rule, we may adopt as PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 final those provisions of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment. II. What did Texas submit? A. Stringency Determinations for Federal Operating Permits at 30 TAC 101.28 December 17, 1999 SIP Submittal In a letter dated December 17, 1999, Governor George W. Bush submitted revisions to the Texas SIP at Rule Log No. 99017–101–AI that were adopted by the Texas Natural Resources Conservation Commission (TNRCC) on December 1, 1999, and became effective on December 23, 1999.1 This SIP submittal included revisions to the following parts of the Texas Administrative Code, Title 30, Chapter 101: 1. Revisions to the General Air Quality Definitions at 30 TAC 101.1; 2. Revisions to Emissions Inventory Requirements at 30 TAC 101.10; 3. New provisions for Stringency Determinations for Federal Operating Permits at 30 TAC 101.28; and 4. Revisions to Conformity of General Federal and State Actions to State Implementation Plans at 30 TAC 101.30. Today’s direct final action and accompanying proposal only addresses the submittal of 30 TAC 101.28. The revisions to the General Air Quality Definitions at 30 TAC 101.1 were superceded by EPA’s November 14, 2001 approval of the Definitions adopted on September 26, 2001. See 66 FR 57252. EPA approved the revisions to the Emissions Inventory Requirements at 30 TAC 101.10 and the revisions to Conformity of General Federal and State Actions to State Implementation Plans at 30 TAC 101.30 on July 23, 2010. See 75 FR 43062. This review will be the first time EPA has evaluated and taken action on the December 17, 1999, submittal of 30 TAC 101.28. TCEQ has made no revisions to 30 TAC 101.28 since the initial adoption and submittal of the regulatory language as a SIP revision. B. Minor Permit Revisions Procedures for Federal Operating Permits Program at 30 TAC 122.215–122.218 The permitting provisions for minor permit revisions in the Texas Federal Operating Permits Program are found at 1 Note that the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission (TNRCC) was a predecessor to the current Texas environmental agency, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. This analysis will identify the TNRCC when talking about a specific action taken by the TNRCC such as rule adoption and SIP submittal, but will generally refer to the TCEQ when discussing current duties of the state environmental agency. E:\FR\FM\10SER1.SGM 10SER1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 175 / Tuesday, September 10, 2013 / Rules and Regulations rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with RULES 30 TAC 122.215–122.218. These provisions generally identify what permitting actions constitute a minor permit revision and detail the application procedures for said minor permit revisions under the Texas Federal Operating Permits Program. The TCEQ initially adopted the revisions at 30 TAC 122.215–122.218 in response to our June 7, 1995, Federal Register notice (60 FR 30037), where EPA identified several inconsistencies between Texas’s Chapter 122 Federal Operating Permits Program and Part 70, including the provisions for minor permit revisions. TCEQ amended 30 TAC 122.215–122.218 to ensure Chapter 122 is consistent with 40 CFR 70.7(e)(2)(i). These amendments were adopted by the state on May 9, 2001, and submitted to EPA for inclusion in the Texas Title V Operating Permit program on May 30, 2001. EPA published approval of these revisions into the Federal Operating Permit program on December 6, 2001 (66 FR 63318), based on our determination that TCEQ had corrected the deficiencies identified in Chapter 122, including those pertaining to the minor permit revisions. TCEQ subsequently adopted amendments to 30 TAC 122.217 regarding minor permit procedures on November 20, 2002. These amendments removed an obsolete reference to the monitoring process for general operating permits and renumbered the section for consistency. These amendments to 30 TAC 122.217 were submitted to EPA as revisions to the Texas Title V Operating Permit Program on December 9, 2002. EPA published approval of these revisions into the Federal Operating Permit program on March 30, 2005 (70 FR 16134). While EPA has reviewed and approved the amendments to sections 30 TAC 122.215–122.218 into the Texas Operating Permit Program, this review marks the first time that EPA has taken action on these sections as revisions to the Texas SIP. In doing so, we are acting on the original SIP submission of October 4, 2001, and the subsequent revisions through the August 11, 2003 SIP submittal. October 4, 2001 SIP Revision Submittal In a letter dated October 4, 2001, Governor Rick Perry submitted revisions to the Texas SIP at Rule Log No. 2000– 043–122–AI that were adopted by the TNRCC on May 9, 2001, and became effective on June 3, 2001. The following parts of the Texas Administrative Code, Title 30, Chapter 122 were submitted in this SIP submittal. Note that no other revisions were adopted or submitted to the Texas SIP in this rule package. VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:54 Sep 09, 2013 Jkt 229001 1. Minor permit revisions at 30 TAC 122.215, 2. Applications for Minor Permit Revisions at 30 TAC 122.216, 3. Procedures for Minor Permit Revisions at 30 TAC 122.217, and 4. Minor Permit Revision Procedures for Permit Revisions Involving the Use of Economic Incentives, Marketable Permits and Emissions Trading at 30 TAC 122.218. August 11, 2003 SIP Revision Submittal In a letter dated August 11, 2003, Mr. Robert J. Huston, Chairman of the TNRCC, submitted revisions to the Texas SIP at Rule Log No. 2002–056– 122–AI for 30 TAC 122.217—Procedures for Minor Permit Revision. The revision to 30 TAC 122.217 was adopted by the TNRCC on November 20, 2002, and became effective on December 11, 2002. Note that no other revisions were adopted or submitted to the Texas SIP in this rule package. III. EPA’s Evaluation We provide our evaluation for this rulemaking in this section. Additional information to support our evaluation is available in the TSDs for this rulemaking, which are available in the rulemaking docket. December 17, 1999 Submittal of 30 TAC 101.28 The TCEQ adopted these provisions as a result of the guidance provided by EPA in our March 5, 1996 ‘‘White Paper Number 2 for Improved Implementation of the Part 70 Operating Permits Program’’ (WP2). In WP2, EPA explains that EPA and the state permitting authorities have developed different and often overlapping applicable requirements for stationary source control. This results in some emissions units at stationary sources being subjected to multiple requirements— some of which may be duplicative or contradictory. To reduce the permit burden on the sources, the state permitting authorities, and the EPA Regional Offices, EPA provided guidance in WP2 on how best to streamline these multiple requirements into one requirement that is at least as stringent as the most stringent limit. Generally, the streamlined monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements would generally be those associated with the most stringent emission limit, providing that the streamlined requirements would assure compliance to the same extent as the subsumed requirements. EPA finds that the new provisions adopted at 30 TAC 101.28 are substantively similar to the guidance PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 55223 provided to states in WP2. As such, the stringency determination provisions are approvable. October 4, 2001 and August 11, 2003 Submittal of 30 TAC 122.215–122.218 Because of the different CAA requirements and authorizations surrounding each program, EPA generally prefers to not approve a state’s Title V permitting provisions into the applicable SIP. However, there are instances where approving a portion of the Title V program into the SIP is appropriate and necessary to ensure proper functionality for both the Title I and V permitting programs. For instance, EPA approved the ‘‘potential to emit’’ provisions at 30 TAC 122.122 into the Texas SIP on November 14, 2003 (see 68 FR 64543). In this instance, EPA required TCEQ to revise the ‘‘potential to emit’’ provisions through our January 7, 2002, Notice of Deficiency of the Texas Title V program; we further required that the corrected PTE provisions be submitted as revisions to both the Texas SIP and Title V programs. The TCEQ adopted revisions to the Texas Title V minor permit provisions at 30 TAC 122.215–122.218 to satisfy inconsistencies identified by EPA June 7, 1995, in the Texas part 70 program. After correcting the deficiencies and adopting revised rules at 30 TAC 122.215–122.218, the TCEQ has submitted and requested Title V and SIP approval. EPA has already evaluated and approved the revisions into the state’s part 70 program. We now address whether these provisions should be SIPapproved. The TCEQ has requested SIP approval because of 30 TAC 122.218; which provides that minor permit procedures may be used for emission trading programs and other similar approaches only to the extent that such minor permit revision procedures are explicitly provided for in the Texas SIP or in the applicable requirements promulgated by the EPA. Texas has several emissions trading programs approved into the Texas SIP, but none of these programs explicitly provide for the use of Title V minor permit revision procedures. Our analysis and approval of each of these state trading programs, found that through approval of the trading programs into the Texas SIP, these programs themselves would become applicable requirements under the approved Texas part 70 program. Since the programs themselves do not provide for the use of minor permit revisions under title V, the minor permit revision procedures in the part 70 program must E:\FR\FM\10SER1.SGM 10SER1 55224 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 175 / Tuesday, September 10, 2013 / Rules and Regulations be explicitly included in the SIP to ensure the Texas sources participating in the SIP-approved trading programs can use the minor permit revision mechanisms. IV. Final Action EPA is taking direct final action to approve revisions to the Texas SIP submitted on December 17, 1999, October 4, 2001 and August 11, 2003 as consistent with the CAA and EPA’s policy and guidance. Specifically, EPA is approving new 30 TAC 101.28 as adopted on December 1, 1999 and submitted on December 17, 1999. EPA is approving revisions to 30 TAC Sections 122.215, 122.216, 122.217 and 122.218 as adopted on May 9, 2001 and submitted on October 4, 2001. EPA is also approving revisions to 30 TAC 122.217 as adopted on November 20, 2002 and submitted on August 11, 2003. rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with RULES V. 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); VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:54 Sep 09, 2013 Jkt 229001 • 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. 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). Under section 307(b)(1) of the Clean Air Act, petitions for judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by November 12, PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 2013. Filing a petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule does not affect the finality of this action for the purposed 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 may not be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2).)

I. What action is EPA taking?

    EPA is taking a direct final action to approve portions of three 
revisions to the Texas State Implementation Plan (SIP) concerning the 
Texas Federal Operating Permits Program. EPA has determined that these 
SIP revisions, submitted on December 17, 1999, October 4, 2001 and 
August 11, 2003, comply with the Clean Air Act and EPA regulations and 
are consistent with EPA policies. This action is being taken under 
section 110 of the Act.
    We are publishing this rule without prior proposal because we view 
this as a noncontroversial amendment and anticipate no relevant adverse 
comments. As explained in our accompanying technical support documents 
(TSD), we are finding this action noncontroversial because the 
provisions for the Stringency Determination for Federal Operating 
Permits at 30 TAC 101.28 have been in effect in Texas since December 
23, 1999, and the minor permit revision procedures for the Texas 
Federal Operating Permit Program have been in effect in Texas since 
June 3, 2001 and December 11, 2002, without any negative impact to 
attainment or maintenance of any National Ambient Air Quality Standard 
in Texas. However, in the proposed rules section of this Federal 
Register publication, we are publishing a separate document that will 
serve as the proposal to approve the SIP revision if relevant adverse 
comments are received. This rule will be effective on November 12, 2013 
without further notice unless we receive relevant adverse comment by 
October 10, 2013. If we receive relevant adverse comments, we will 
publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register informing the 
public that the rule will not take effect. We will address all public 
comments in a subsequent final rule based on the proposed rule. We will 
not institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties 
interested in commenting must do so now. Please note that if we receive 
adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule and 
if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the rule, we may 
adopt as final those provisions of the rule that are not the subject of 
an adverse comment.

II. What did Texas submit?

A. Stringency Determinations for Federal Operating Permits at 30 TAC 
101.28

December 17, 1999 SIP Submittal
    In a letter dated December 17, 1999, Governor George W. Bush 
submitted revisions to the Texas SIP at Rule Log No. 99017-101-AI that 
were adopted by the Texas Natural Resources Conservation Commission 
(TNRCC) on December 1, 1999, and became effective on December 23, 
1999.\1\ This SIP submittal included revisions to the following parts 
of the Texas Administrative Code, Title 30, Chapter 101:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Note that the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission 
(TNRCC) was a predecessor to the current Texas environmental agency, 
the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. This analysis will 
identify the TNRCC when talking about a specific action taken by the 
TNRCC such as rule adoption and SIP submittal, but will generally 
refer to the TCEQ when discussing current duties of the state 
environmental agency.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    1. Revisions to the General Air Quality Definitions at 30 TAC 
101.1;
    2. Revisions to Emissions Inventory Requirements at 30 TAC 101.10;
    3. New provisions for Stringency Determinations for Federal 
Operating Permits at 30 TAC 101.28; and
    4. Revisions to Conformity of General Federal and State Actions to 
State Implementation Plans at 30 TAC 101.30.
    Today's direct final action and accompanying proposal only 
addresses the submittal of 30 TAC 101.28. The revisions to the General 
Air Quality Definitions at 30 TAC 101.1 were superceded by EPA's 
November 14, 2001 approval of the Definitions adopted on September 26, 
2001. See 66 FR 57252. EPA approved the revisions to the Emissions 
Inventory Requirements at 30 TAC 101.10 and the revisions to Conformity 
of General Federal and State Actions to State Implementation Plans at 
30 TAC 101.30 on July 23, 2010. See 75 FR 43062. This review will be 
the first time EPA has evaluated and taken action on the December 17, 
1999, submittal of 30 TAC 101.28. TCEQ has made no revisions to 30 TAC 
101.28 since the initial adoption and submittal of the regulatory 
language as a SIP revision.

B. Minor Permit Revisions Procedures for Federal Operating Permits 
Program at 30 TAC 122.215-122.218

    The permitting provisions for minor permit revisions in the Texas 
Federal Operating Permits Program are found at

[[Page 55223]]

30 TAC 122.215-122.218. These provisions generally identify what 
permitting actions constitute a minor permit revision and detail the 
application procedures for said minor permit revisions under the Texas 
Federal Operating Permits Program. The TCEQ initially adopted the 
revisions at 30 TAC 122.215-122.218 in response to our June 7, 1995, 
Federal Register notice (60 FR 30037), where EPA identified several 
inconsistencies between Texas's Chapter 122 Federal Operating Permits 
Program and Part 70, including the provisions for minor permit 
revisions. TCEQ amended 30 TAC 122.215-122.218 to ensure Chapter 122 is 
consistent with 40 CFR 70.7(e)(2)(i). These amendments were adopted by 
the state on May 9, 2001, and submitted to EPA for inclusion in the 
Texas Title V Operating Permit program on May 30, 2001. EPA published 
approval of these revisions into the Federal Operating Permit program 
on December 6, 2001 (66 FR 63318), based on our determination that TCEQ 
had corrected the deficiencies identified in Chapter 122, including 
those pertaining to the minor permit revisions. TCEQ subsequently 
adopted amendments to 30 TAC 122.217 regarding minor permit procedures 
on November 20, 2002. These amendments removed an obsolete reference to 
the monitoring process for general operating permits and renumbered the 
section for consistency. These amendments to 30 TAC 122.217 were 
submitted to EPA as revisions to the Texas Title V Operating Permit 
Program on December 9, 2002. EPA published approval of these revisions 
into the Federal Operating Permit program on March 30, 2005 (70 FR 
16134).
    While EPA has reviewed and approved the amendments to sections 30 
TAC 122.215-122.218 into the Texas Operating Permit Program, this 
review marks the first time that EPA has taken action on these sections 
as revisions to the Texas SIP. In doing so, we are acting on the 
original SIP submission of October 4, 2001, and the subsequent 
revisions through the August 11, 2003 SIP submittal.
October 4, 2001 SIP Revision Submittal
    In a letter dated October 4, 2001, Governor Rick Perry submitted 
revisions to the Texas SIP at Rule Log No. 2000-043-122-AI that were 
adopted by the TNRCC on May 9, 2001, and became effective on June 3, 
2001. The following parts of the Texas Administrative Code, Title 30, 
Chapter 122 were submitted in this SIP submittal. Note that no other 
revisions were adopted or submitted to the Texas SIP in this rule 
package.
    1. Minor permit revisions at 30 TAC 122.215,
    2. Applications for Minor Permit Revisions at 30 TAC 122.216,
    3. Procedures for Minor Permit Revisions at 30 TAC 122.217, and
    4. Minor Permit Revision Procedures for Permit Revisions Involving 
the Use of Economic Incentives, Marketable Permits and Emissions 
Trading at 30 TAC 122.218.
August 11, 2003 SIP Revision Submittal
    In a letter dated August 11, 2003, Mr. Robert J. Huston, Chairman 
of the TNRCC, submitted revisions to the Texas SIP at Rule Log No. 
2002-056-122-AI for 30 TAC 122.217--Procedures for Minor Permit 
Revision. The revision to 30 TAC 122.217 was adopted by the TNRCC on 
November 20, 2002, and became effective on December 11, 2002. Note that 
no other revisions were adopted or submitted to the Texas SIP in this 
rule package.

III. EPA's Evaluation

    We provide our evaluation for this rulemaking in this section. 
Additional information to support our evaluation is available in the 
TSDs for this rulemaking, which are available in the rulemaking docket.
December 17, 1999 Submittal of 30 TAC 101.28
    The TCEQ adopted these provisions as a result of the guidance 
provided by EPA in our March 5, 1996 ``White Paper Number 2 for 
Improved Implementation of the Part 70 Operating Permits Program'' 
(WP2). In WP2, EPA explains that EPA and the state permitting 
authorities have developed different and often overlapping applicable 
requirements for stationary source control. This results in some 
emissions units at stationary sources being subjected to multiple 
requirements--some of which may be duplicative or contradictory. To 
reduce the permit burden on the sources, the state permitting 
authorities, and the EPA Regional Offices, EPA provided guidance in WP2 
on how best to streamline these multiple requirements into one 
requirement that is at least as stringent as the most stringent limit. 
Generally, the streamlined monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting 
requirements would generally be those associated with the most 
stringent emission limit, providing that the streamlined requirements 
would assure compliance to the same extent as the subsumed 
requirements.
    EPA finds that the new provisions adopted at 30 TAC 101.28 are 
substantively similar to the guidance provided to states in WP2. As 
such, the stringency determination provisions are approvable.
October 4, 2001 and August 11, 2003 Submittal of 30 TAC 122.215-122.218
    Because of the different CAA requirements and authorizations 
surrounding each program, EPA generally prefers to not approve a 
state's Title V permitting provisions into the applicable SIP. However, 
there are instances where approving a portion of the Title V program 
into the SIP is appropriate and necessary to ensure proper 
functionality for both the Title I and V permitting programs. For 
instance, EPA approved the ``potential to emit'' provisions at 30 TAC 
122.122 into the Texas SIP on November 14, 2003 (see 68 FR 64543). In 
this instance, EPA required TCEQ to revise the ``potential to emit'' 
provisions through our January 7, 2002, Notice of Deficiency of the 
Texas Title V program; we further required that the corrected PTE 
provisions be submitted as revisions to both the Texas SIP and Title V 
programs.
    The TCEQ adopted revisions to the Texas Title V minor permit 
provisions at 30 TAC 122.215-122.218 to satisfy inconsistencies 
identified by EPA June 7, 1995, in the Texas part 70 program. After 
correcting the deficiencies and adopting revised rules at 30 TAC 
122.215-122.218, the TCEQ has submitted and requested Title V and SIP 
approval. EPA has already evaluated and approved the revisions into the 
state's part 70 program. We now address whether these provisions should 
be SIP-approved.
    The TCEQ has requested SIP approval because of 30 TAC 122.218; 
which provides that minor permit procedures may be used for emission 
trading programs and other similar approaches only to the extent that 
such minor permit revision procedures are explicitly provided for in 
the Texas SIP or in the applicable requirements promulgated by the EPA.
    Texas has several emissions trading programs approved into the 
Texas SIP, but none of these programs explicitly provide for the use of 
Title V minor permit revision procedures. Our analysis and approval of 
each of these state trading programs, found that through approval of 
the trading programs into the Texas SIP, these programs themselves 
would become applicable requirements under the approved Texas part 70 
program. Since the programs themselves do not provide for the use of 
minor permit revisions under title V, the minor permit revision 
procedures in the part 70 program must

[[Page 55224]]

be explicitly included in the SIP to ensure the Texas sources 
participating in the SIP-approved trading programs can use the minor 
permit revision mechanisms.

IV. Final Action

    EPA is taking direct final action to approve revisions to the Texas 
SIP submitted on December 17, 1999, October 4, 2001 and August 11, 2003 
as consistent with the CAA and EPA's policy and guidance. Specifically, 
EPA is approving new 30 TAC 101.28 as adopted on December 1, 1999 and 
submitted on December 17, 1999. EPA is approving revisions to 30 TAC 
Sections 122.215, 122.216, 122.217 and 122.218 as adopted on May 9, 
2001 and submitted on October 4, 2001. EPA is also approving revisions 
to 30 TAC 122.217 as adopted on November 20, 2002 and submitted on 
August 11, 2003.

V. 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 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.
    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).
    Under section 307(b)(1) of the Clean Air Act, petitions for 
judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court 
of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by November 12, 2013. Filing a 
petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule 
does not affect the finality of this action for the purposed 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 may not be challenged later in 
proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2).)
