What is the purpose of the submitted negative declarations? The negative declarations were submitted to meet the requirements of CAA section 182(b)(2). Ozone nonattainment areas classified at moderate and above are required to adopt VOC regulations for the published Control Technique Guidelines (CTG) categories and for major non-CTG sources of VOC or NOX. If an ozone nonattainment area does not have stationary sources covered by an EPA published CTG, then the area is required to submit a negative declaration. The negative declarations were submitted because there are no stationary sources exceeding the CTG’s applicability threshold within the EDAQMD jurisdiction. EPA’s technical support document (TSD) has more information about these negative declarations. II. EPA’s Evaluation and Action A. How is EPA evaluating the negative declarations? The negative declarations are submitted as SIP revisions and must be consistent with CAA requirements for Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) (see section 182(b)(2)) and SIP relaxation (see sections 110(l) and 193.) To do so, the submittal should provide reasonable assurance that no sources subject to the CTG requirements currently exist or are planned for the EDAQMD. pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with RULES B. Do the negative declarations meet the evaluation criteria? We believe these negative declarations are consistent with the relevant policy and guidance regarding RACT and SIP relaxations. The TSD has more information on our evaluation. C. Public Comment and Final Action As authorized in section 110(k)(3) of the Act, EPA is fully approving the submitted negative declarations as additional information to the SIP because we believe they fulfill all relevant requirements. We do not think anyone will object to this approval, so we are finalizing it without proposing it in advance. However, in the Proposed Rules section of this Federal Register, we are simultaneously proposing approval of these negative declarations. If we receive adverse comments by February 13, 2014, we will publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register to notify the public that the direct final approval will not take effect and we will address the comments in a subsequent final action based on the proposal. If we do not receive timely adverse comments, the direct final VerDate Mar<15>2010 12:41 Jan 13, 2014 Jkt 232001 approval will be effective without further notice on March 17, 2014. 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. 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 disproportionate human health or environmental effects with practical, appropriate, 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 PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 March 17, 2014. Filing a petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule does not affect the finality of this action for the purposes 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. Parties with objections to this direct final rule are encouraged to file a comment in response to the parallel notice of proposed rulemaking for this action published in the Proposed Rules section of today’s Federal Register, rather than file an immediate petition for judicial review of this direct final rule, so that EPA can withdraw this direct final rule and address the comment in the proposed rulemaking. This action may not be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements (see section 307(b)(2)).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Legal Basis The legal basis of the final rule titled Medical Certification Requirements as Part of the Commercial Driver’s License, PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 2377 (2008 final rule) (73 FR 73096–73097), is also applicable to this rule. The legal basis for issuing this final rule without an opportunity for public comment, and without an effective date at least 30 days after publication, are the two ‘‘good cause’’ exceptions under the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 553(b) and (d)(3). The APA specifically provides exceptions to its notice and comment rulemaking procedures when the Agency finds that there is good cause (and incorporates the finding and a brief statement of reasons therefore in the rules issued) to dispense with them. Generally, good cause exists when the agency determines that notice and comment procedures are impractical, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. 5 U.S.C. 553(b). The Agency finds it necessary to take this action without notice and comment because of delays in implementation caused by those SDLAs not yet in compliance with the requirements of the 2008 final rule required by January 30, 2014. It would be impractical to conduct notice and comment procedures in the short time remaining before that date. Moreover, under similar circumstances in 2011, when notice and an opportunity for public comment was provided, no comments were submitted either for or against the extension issued at that time. Most SDLAs will be in compliance by January 30, 2014, but obviously unless all of the SDLAs issuing CDLs and CLPs are in compliance, it will still be necessary for drivers and their employers to rely on the paper medical examiner’s certificate to verify that the driver is physically qualified. Under these circumstances, FMCSA believes that no comments about this additional extension would likely be submitted, and therefore the notice and comment procedure is unnecessary. Delaying this extension beyond January 30, 2014 while comments are received would create uncertainty within the CDL and CLP program and potential inconsistencies in requirements and capabilities among States, however briefly. In this instance, notice and comment is therefore also contrary to the public interest. The APA also provides for an exception to the required publication of a final rule on not less than 30 days’ notice before its effective date. 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). The same reasons that justify dispensing with notice and comment procedures also justify making this final rule effective immediately, as well as the need to provide sufficient notice to the SDLAs and the affected carriers and drivers. FMCSA finds that there is good cause for making this final rule effective E:\FR\FM\14JAR1.SGM 14JAR1

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

    On November 25, 2013, EPA determined that the EDAQMD negative 
declarations submitted on September 30, 2013, met the completeness 
criteria in 40 CFR Part 51 Appendix V, which must be met before formal 
EPA review.

B. Are there other versions of these negative declarations?

    There are no previous versions of these negative declarations.

[[Page 2376]]

C. What is the purpose of the submitted negative declarations?

    The negative declarations were submitted to meet the requirements 
of CAA section 182(b)(2). Ozone nonattainment areas classified at 
moderate and above are required to adopt VOC regulations for the 
published Control Technique Guidelines (CTG) categories and for major 
non-CTG sources of VOC or NOX. If an ozone nonattainment 
area does not have stationary sources covered by an EPA published CTG, 
then the area is required to submit a negative declaration. The 
negative declarations were submitted because there are no stationary 
sources exceeding the CTG's applicability threshold within the EDAQMD 
jurisdiction. EPA's technical support document (TSD) has more 
information about these negative declarations.

II. EPA's Evaluation and Action

A. How is EPA evaluating the negative declarations?

    The negative declarations are submitted as SIP revisions and must 
be consistent with CAA requirements for Reasonably Available Control 
Technology (RACT) (see section 182(b)(2)) and SIP relaxation (see 
sections 110(l) and 193.) To do so, the submittal should provide 
reasonable assurance that no sources subject to the CTG requirements 
currently exist or are planned for the EDAQMD.

B. Do the negative declarations meet the evaluation criteria?

    We believe these negative declarations are consistent with the 
relevant policy and guidance regarding RACT and SIP relaxations. The 
TSD has more information on our evaluation.

C. Public Comment and Final Action

    As authorized in section 110(k)(3) of the Act, EPA is fully 
approving the submitted negative declarations as additional information 
to the SIP because we believe they fulfill all relevant requirements. 
We do not think anyone will object to this approval, so we are 
finalizing it without proposing it in advance. However, in the Proposed 
Rules section of this Federal Register, we are simultaneously proposing 
approval of these negative declarations. If we receive adverse comments 
by February 13, 2014, we will publish a timely withdrawal in the 
Federal Register to notify the public that the direct final approval 
will not take effect and we will address the comments in a subsequent 
final action based on the proposal. If we do not receive timely adverse 
comments, the direct final approval will be effective without further 
notice on March 17, 2014.

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. 
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 disproportionate human health or environmental effects with 
practical, appropriate, 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 March 17, 2014. Filing a 
petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule 
does not affect the finality of this action for the purposes 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. Parties with objections to this direct final 
rule are encouraged to file a comment in response to the parallel 
notice of proposed rulemaking for this action published in the Proposed 
Rules section of today's Federal Register, rather than file an 
immediate petition for judicial review of this direct final rule, so 
that EPA can withdraw this direct final rule and address the comment in 
the proposed rulemaking. This action may not be challenged later in 
proceedings to enforce its requirements (see section 307(b)(2)).
