FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you have questions on this temporary deviation, call or email Mr. Jim Rousseau, Bridge Administration Branch Fifth District, Coast Guard; telephone (757) 398–6557, email James.L.Rousseau2@uscg.mil. If you have questions on reviewing the docket, call Cheryl Collins, Program Manager, Docket Operations, (202) 366–9826. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The North Carolina Department of Transportation, who owns and operates this vertical lift bridge, has requested a temporary deviation to conduct the biannual inspections. The existing drawbridge operation regulation for the Cape Fear River Memorial Bridge is listed in 33 CFR 117.822. The regulation allows the bridge to remain closed to navigation once in both July and November to accommodate annual marathon races. The drawbridge opens on demand at all other times. Under this temporary deviation, the drawbridge will be closed to navigation beginning each day from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., on March 17, 2014 until March 28, 2014; however, vessel openings will be provided if at least two hours advance notice is given. At all other times, the drawbridge will operate under its normal schedule. The Cape Fear River Memorial Bridge, at mile 26.8, at Wilmington, NC, has vertical clearances in the open and closed positions of 135 feet and 65 feet above mean high water, respectively. Typical vessel traffic on the Cape Fear River includes a variety of vessels from freighters, tug and barge traffic, and recreational vessels. Vessels that can pass under the bridge without a bridge opening may continue to do so at anytime. There are no alternate routes for vessels transiting this section of the Cape Fear River. The drawbridge will be able to open in the event of an emergency. The Coast Guard has carefully coordinated the restrictions with commercial and recreational waterway users. The Coast Guard will inform all users of the waterway through our Local and Broadcast Notice to Mariners of the closure periods for the bridge so that vessels can arrange their transits to minimize any impacts caused by the temporary deviation. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:37 Feb 13, 2014 Jkt 232001 operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: February 6, 2014. Waverly W. Gregory, Jr., Bridge Program Manager, Fifth Coast Guard District.

Statutory and Executive Order Reviews I. Background The background for today’s action is discussed in detail in our December 24, 2013, proposal (78 FR 77261). In that notice, we proposed to approve four submittals from the State of Texas as revisions to the Texas New Source Review (NSR) State Implementation Plan (SIP) that incorporate the Standard Permit for Installation and/or Modification of Oil and Gas Facilities (hereafter referred to as the ‘‘Oil and Gas Standard Permit’’). Texas initially submitted the Standard Permit provisions on September 20, 1995, and submitted subsequent revisions to those provisions on April 19, 1996; July 22, 1998; and September 11, 2000. The proposed approval and accompanying Technical Support Document explain the existing SIP-approved Standard Permit Program in Texas; give a summary of each of the submittals being addressed in this action; and explain how those submittals comply with the applicable federal requirements. The proposal further explains that the Oil and Gas Standard Permit includes standardized conditions for the emission units located at oil and gas facilities that may be authorized by the Standard Permit. If a proposed project at an oil and gas facility includes any emission units that are not explicitly covered by the Oil and Gas Standard Permit, the permit applicant must obtain another type of Standard Permit authorization, a permit-by-rule (PBR) or, if necessary, case-by-case NSR permitting for authorization. In the December 24, 2013 proposal, we also proposed to approve submittals from the State of Texas as a revision to the NSR SIP that contain nonsubstantive changes to the applicability E:\FR\FM\14FER1.SGM 14FER1 8862 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 31 / Friday, February 14, 2014 / Rules and Regulations tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES provisions of the Standard Permits SIP permitting program. Texas submitted revisions to the Standard Permit applicability provisions on February 1, 2006 and resubmitted them on March 11, 2011. II. Response to Comments We received comments from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and the Texas Pipeline Association (TPA) on our December 24, 2013 proposal. The comments we received can be accessed from the www.regulations.gov Web site (Docket No. EPA–R06–OAR–2011–0528). Generally, both the TCEQ and TPA were supportive of our proposed action and expressed agreement with our analysis. However, each commenter provided the following information concerning our proposed rulemaking for which EPA would like to provide clarification. Comment 1: The TCEQ notes that the commission adopts standard permits in an open meeting, for which notice is posted at least seven days in advance and which provides additional opportunity for public comment on the standard permit. Further, registration is required for the Oil and Gas Standard Permit. Response 1: EPA acknowledges the TCEQ’s support of our rulemaking and appreciates the additional information provided by the TCEQ regarding the rules and processes for implementing the Standard Permit program. We agree that, in addition to a public hearing, the TCEQ is required to adopt Rule Standard Permits in an open meeting and post notice of the open meeting seven days in advance of the event. The public meetings provided the public with an additional opportunity for public comment on the Oil and Gas Standard Permit as adopted and amended. EPA has prepared a Supplement to the Technical Support Document to include the clarification from TCEQ. This Supplement to the Technical Support Document is available in our rulemaking docket, EPA–R06–OAR–2011–0528. EPA also recognizes that applicants must register the use of the Standard Permit. Comment 2: The TPA commented that ‘‘Through incorporation by reference in TCEQ’s Non-Rule Standard Permit, the terms of the Oil and Gas Standard Permit continue to authorize existing and unchanged facilities throughout the State of Texas and new projects and dependent facilities in all Texas counties except for 15 counties located in the Barnett Shale area.’’ Response 2: EPA acknowledges the support of the TPA for our rulemaking, but must clarify and correct that VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:37 Feb 13, 2014 Jkt 232001 statement made in Comment 2 above. The Oil and Gas Standard Permit addressed in this action is a separate Minor NSR permit mechanism from the Non-Rule Standard Permit for Oil and Gas. While similar source categories are authorized under each, the Non-Rule Standard Permit for Oil and Gas applies only to the 15 counties in the Barnett Shale region. The Oil and Gas Standard Permit applies throughout the State of Texas, with the exception of the 15 counties, for the listed categories of sources. Additionally, Texas promulgated this Oil and Gas Standard Permit by regulation at 30 TAC 116.620, and it is not incorporated into the NonRule Standard Permit, which was developed through a separate process under the SIP.1 III. Final Action We are approving SIP submittals from the State of Texas for the Minor NSR Oil and Gas Standard Permit at 30 TAC Section 116.620 as submitted September 20, 1995; April 19, 1996; July 22, 1998; and September 11, 2000. The types of emission units that may be authorized by this section are the following: Internal combustion engines (ICEs), natural gas turbines (NG turbines), flares, other combustion units (design heat input >40 million BTU per hour), natural gas glycol dehydration units, storage tanks, separators, condensers, vapor recovery units, process vents, and process fugitives. We are also approving the submittals for the Standard Permit SIP rules making non-substantive changes to the Standard Permit applicability provisions in 30 TAC Sections 116.610(a) and (b) as submitted February 1, 2006, and resubmitted March 11, 2011. We are approving these SIP revisions in accordance with section 110 of the CAA. IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Under the CAA, the Administrator is required to approve a SIP submission that 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 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 1 Texas adopted the Non-Rule Standard Permit in accordance with 30 TAC Section116.601(a)(2). EPA approved this process for Texas to adopt non-rule standard permits into the Texas SIP on November 14, 2003. 68 FR 64543. PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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, 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 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. section 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.

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 April 15, 2014.

I. Background

    The background for today's action is discussed in detail in our 
December 24, 2013, proposal (78 FR 77261). In that notice, we proposed 
to approve four submittals from the State of Texas as revisions to the 
Texas New Source Review (NSR) State Implementation Plan (SIP) that 
incorporate the Standard Permit for Installation and/or Modification of 
Oil and Gas Facilities (hereafter referred to as the ``Oil and Gas 
Standard Permit''). Texas initially submitted the Standard Permit 
provisions on September 20, 1995, and submitted subsequent revisions to 
those provisions on April 19, 1996; July 22, 1998; and September 11, 
2000. The proposed approval and accompanying Technical Support Document 
explain the existing SIP-approved Standard Permit Program in Texas; 
give a summary of each of the submittals being addressed in this 
action; and explain how those submittals comply with the applicable 
federal requirements. The proposal further explains that the Oil and 
Gas Standard Permit includes standardized conditions for the emission 
units located at oil and gas facilities that may be authorized by the 
Standard Permit. If a proposed project at an oil and gas facility 
includes any emission units that are not explicitly covered by the Oil 
and Gas Standard Permit, the permit applicant must obtain another type 
of Standard Permit authorization, a permit-by-rule (PBR) or, if 
necessary, case-by-case NSR permitting for authorization.
    In the December 24, 2013 proposal, we also proposed to approve 
submittals from the State of Texas as a revision to the NSR SIP that 
contain non-substantive changes to the applicability

[[Page 8862]]

provisions of the Standard Permits SIP permitting program. Texas 
submitted revisions to the Standard Permit applicability provisions on 
February 1, 2006 and resubmitted them on March 11, 2011.

II. Response to Comments

    We received comments from the Texas Commission on Environmental 
Quality (TCEQ) and the Texas Pipeline Association (TPA) on our December 
24, 2013 proposal. The comments we received can be accessed from the 
www.regulations.gov Web site (Docket No. EPA-R06-OAR-2011-0528). 
Generally, both the TCEQ and TPA were supportive of our proposed action 
and expressed agreement with our analysis. However, each commenter 
provided the following information concerning our proposed rulemaking 
for which EPA would like to provide clarification.
    Comment 1: The TCEQ notes that the commission adopts standard 
permits in an open meeting, for which notice is posted at least seven 
days in advance and which provides additional opportunity for public 
comment on the standard permit. Further, registration is required for 
the Oil and Gas Standard Permit.
    Response 1: EPA acknowledges the TCEQ's support of our rulemaking 
and appreciates the additional information provided by the TCEQ 
regarding the rules and processes for implementing the Standard Permit 
program. We agree that, in addition to a public hearing, the TCEQ is 
required to adopt Rule Standard Permits in an open meeting and post 
notice of the open meeting seven days in advance of the event. The 
public meetings provided the public with an additional opportunity for 
public comment on the Oil and Gas Standard Permit as adopted and 
amended. EPA has prepared a Supplement to the Technical Support 
Document to include the clarification from TCEQ. This Supplement to the 
Technical Support Document is available in our rulemaking docket, EPA-
R06-OAR-2011-0528. EPA also recognizes that applicants must register 
the use of the Standard Permit.
    Comment 2: The TPA commented that ``Through incorporation by 
reference in TCEQ's Non-Rule Standard Permit, the terms of the Oil and 
Gas Standard Permit continue to authorize existing and unchanged 
facilities throughout the State of Texas and new projects and dependent 
facilities in all Texas counties except for 15 counties located in the 
Barnett Shale area.''
    Response 2: EPA acknowledges the support of the TPA for our 
rulemaking, but must clarify and correct that statement made in Comment 
2 above. The Oil and Gas Standard Permit addressed in this action is a 
separate Minor NSR permit mechanism from the Non-Rule Standard Permit 
for Oil and Gas. While similar source categories are authorized under 
each, the Non-Rule Standard Permit for Oil and Gas applies only to the 
15 counties in the Barnett Shale region. The Oil and Gas Standard 
Permit applies throughout the State of Texas, with the exception of the 
15 counties, for the listed categories of sources. Additionally, Texas 
promulgated this Oil and Gas Standard Permit by regulation at 30 TAC 
116.620, and it is not incorporated into the Non-Rule Standard Permit, 
which was developed through a separate process under the SIP.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Texas adopted the Non-Rule Standard Permit in accordance 
with 30 TAC Section116.601(a)(2). EPA approved this process for 
Texas to adopt non-rule standard permits into the Texas SIP on 
November 14, 2003. 68 FR 64543.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

III. Final Action

    We are approving SIP submittals from the State of Texas for the 
Minor NSR Oil and Gas Standard Permit at 30 TAC Section 116.620 as 
submitted September 20, 1995; April 19, 1996; July 22, 1998; and 
September 11, 2000. The types of emission units that may be authorized 
by this section are the following: Internal combustion engines (ICEs), 
natural gas turbines (NG turbines), flares, other combustion units 
(design heat input >40 million BTU per hour), natural gas glycol 
dehydration units, storage tanks, separators, condensers, vapor 
recovery units, process vents, and process fugitives. We are also 
approving the submittals for the Standard Permit SIP rules making non-
substantive changes to the Standard Permit applicability provisions in 
30 TAC Sections 116.610(a) and (b) as submitted February 1, 2006, and 
resubmitted March 11, 2011. We are approving these SIP revisions in 
accordance with section 110 of the CAA.

IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under the CAA, the Administrator is required to approve a SIP 
submission that 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 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, 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 
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. section 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,

[[Page 8863]]

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
