Abstract: The NOX Budget Trading Program was a market-based cap and trade program created to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOX) from power plants and other large combustion sources in the eastern United States. NOX is a prime ingredient in the formation of ground-level ozone (smog), a pervasive air pollution problem in many areas of the eastern United States. The NOX Budget Trading Program was established as an optional implementation mechanism for the NOX State Implementation Plan (SIP) Call and was designed to reduce NOX emissions during the warm summer months, referred to as the ozone season, PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 3369 when ground-level ozone concentrations are highest. In 2009 the program was replaced by the Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) Ozone Season Trading Program. The renewal of this ICR is necessary primarily because some sources in certain States are still required to monitor and report emissions data to EPA under those states’ NOX SIP Call rules. All data received by EPA will be treated as public information. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA’s regulations in 40 CFR are listed in 40 CFR part 9. Form Numbers: EPA form number 7620–16. Respondents/affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are those which formerly participated in the NOX Budget Trading Program to Reduce the Regional Transport of Ozone and which continue to have reporting obligations under their states’ NOX SIP Call rules that are not duplicated under other rules. Respondent’s obligation to respond: mandatory (Sections 110(a) and 301(a) of the Clean Air Act). Estimated number of respondents: EPA estimates that there are 122 former NOX Budget Trading Program units that will continue to conduct monitoring in accordance with Part 75 solely under the NOX SIP call. Frequency of response: yearly, quarterly, occasionally. Total estimated burden: 57,586 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $8,066,616 (per year), includes $3,777,000 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is no increase in the hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB.
