Download as PDF 77120 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 245 / Friday, December 20, 2013 / Notices biomass verification provisions, akin to that applicable to producers using crops and crop residue grown in the United States. For this authorization, foreign based entities may petition EPA for approval of the aggregate compliance approach for specified renewable fuel feedstocks either in a foreign country as a whole or in a specified geographical area. This petition request for the aggregate compliance approach for foreign-grown crops and crop residue is voluntary, though, if approved by EPA, will offer the benefit that certain renewable biomass produced in a foreign country or geographical area can be counted as feedstock to make renewable fuel for credit under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS2) program in 40 CFR Part 80. Form numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: 15. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Voluntary. Estimated number of respondents: 15 (total). Frequency of response: On occasion. Total estimated burden: 200 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $22,794 (per year), includes no annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in estimates: There is no increase of hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. The respondent universe and responses also remained the same in this collection. There was in increase in cost to the industry of $8,598 per year due to better numbers used to calculate the industry burden and to account for inflation. Dated: December 4, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On October 13, 2005, the final Cross-Media Electronic Reporting Rule (CROMERR) was published in the Federal Register (70 FR 59848) and codified as part 3 of title 40 of the CFR. CROMERR establishes electronic reporting as an acceptable regulatory alternative to paper reporting and establishes requirements to assure that electronic documents are as legally dependable as their paper counterparts. Subpart D of CROMERR requires that state, tribal or local government agencies that receive, or wish to begin receiving, electronic reports under their EPA-authorized programs must apply to EPA for a revision or modification of those programs and obtain EPA approval. Subpart D provides standards for such approvals based on consideration of the electronic document receiving systems that the state, tribe, or local government will use to implement the electronic reporting. Additionally, § 3.1000(b) through (e) of 40 CFR part 3, subpart D provides special procedures for program revisions and modifications to allow electronic reporting, to be used at the emcdonald on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:44 Dec 19, 2013 Jkt 232001 option of the state, tribe or local government in place of procedures available under existing programspecific authorization regulations. An application submitted under the subpart D procedures must show that the state, tribe or local government has sufficient legal authority to implement the electronic reporting components of the programs covered by the application and will use electronic document receiving systems that meet the applicable subpart D requirements. On August 8, 2010 the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) submitted an amended application titled ‘‘Air Compliance and Emission Electronic Reporting System’’ for modification of its EPA-authorized Part 70 program under title 40 CFR. EPA reviewed NYSDEC’s request to modify Part 70— ‘‘State Operating Permit Programs’’ and, based on this review, EPA determined that the application met the standards for approval of authorized program modification set out in 40 CFR part 3, subpart D. In accordance with 40 CFR 3.1000(d), this notice of EPA’s decision to approve New York State’s request to modify its Part 70—State Operating Permit Programs to allow electronic reporting under 40 CFR part 70 is being published in the Federal Register. NYSDEC was notified of EPA’s determination to approve its application with respect to the authorized program listed above. Dated: December 11, 2013.
