We are proposing to find that the EDAQMD 2006 RACT SIP submission, including all of these negative declarations, adequately demonstrates that the applicable SIP rules for all CTG source categories operating within the El Dorado AQMD satisfy RACT and that there are no existing major stationary sources of NOx or VOC in El Dorado County subject to RACT for the 1997 8hour ozone NAAQS. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS C. EPA Recommendations to Strengthen the SIP We recommend strengthening the solvent cleaning limits in Rule 225, ‘‘Solvent Cleaning Operations (Degreasing)’’ and coating limits in Rule 215, ‘‘Architectural Coatings,’’ to more closely match corresponding requirements adopted by the Sacramento Metro AQMD and Placer County Air Pollution Control District.3 These recommendations will strengthen the SIP, but are not required to satisfy RACT. We discuss these recommendations further in our 2006 RACT SIP TSD. D. Proposed Action and Request for Public Comment Based on the evaluations discussed above and more fully in our 2006 RACT SIP TSD, we are proposing to conclude that EDAQMD’s 2006 RACT SIP submission satisfies CAA section 182 RACT requirements for the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS and to fully approve this submission into the California SIP pursuant to 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 this RACT submission into the federally enforceable SIP. 3 See Sacramento Metro AQMD Rule 466, Solvent Cleaning, section 301.1 which specifies a 25 grams/ liter VOC limit for general solvent cleaning; 40 CFR Part 59, subpart D, National Volatile Organic Compound Emission Standards for Architectural Coatings; and CARB’s suggested control measures for architectural coatings at: https://www.arb.ca.gov/ coatings/arch/Approved_2007_SCM.pdf. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:00 Oct 24, 2013 Jkt 232001 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. This action merely proposes to approve State law as meeting Federal requirements and does not impose additional requirements beyond those imposed by State law. For that reason, this proposed 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 PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 • does not provide EPA with the discretionary authority to address, as appropriate, disproportionate human health or environmental effects, with practical and legally permissible methods, under Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994). In addition, this proposed action 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.
