National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan; National Priorities List: Deletion of the Geiger (C&M Oil) Superfund Site, 66325-66326 [2013-26513]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 214 / Tuesday, November 5, 2013 / Proposed Rules EPA treats as reservations, trust lands validly set aside for the use of a Tribe even if the trust lands have not been formally designated as a reservation. Consistent with previous federal program approvals or delegations, EPA will continue to implement the RM Program in Indian country because NDDA has not demonstrated authority over sources and activities located within the exterior boundaries of Indian reservations and other areas in Indian country. wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS IV. Proposed Action EPA proposes approving NDDA’s request for partial delegation of authority to implement and enforce (with the exception of criminal enforcement) the RM Program for agricultural anhydrous ammonia facilities. NDDA has incorporated by reference Federal requirements set forth in 40 CFR part 68 in NDAC 7–12–03 and regulates agricultural anhydrous ammonia facilities through this authority as well as its authority in NDCC 19–20.2 and 19–20.3. This partial delegation will extend to agricultural anhydrous ammonia facilities which are sources subject to the accidental release prevention regulations in 40 CFR part 68, with the exception of sources in Indian country. V. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Under the CAA, the Regional Administrator is authorized to approve program delegation when that program 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 delegation requests, EPA’s role is to review and approve state programs provided that they meet the criteria of the CAA. Accordingly, this proposed action merely approves a state program 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:55 Nov 04, 2013 Jkt 232001 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 CAA; 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 State program is not approved to regulate in Indian country located in North Dakota, and EPA notes that it will not impose substantial direct costs on Tribal governments or preempt Tribal law.
