ACTION: Direct final rule. AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is approving revisions to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) for the State of Iowa. These revisions will amend the SIP to include revisions to Iowa air quality rule, Chapter 33, ‘‘Special Regulations and Construction Permit Requirements for Major Stationary Sources—Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) of Air Quality.’’ This rule amendment makes the state regulation consistent with the Federal regulation for the fine Particulate Matter (PM2.5) PSD program. This revision will amend source obligation provisions as they apply to recordkeeping and will provide a mechanism to allow industry to request rescission of a PSD permit, both of which match the Federal regulations. This action is also consistent with the state’s request to not include, into the SIP, provisions relating to Significant Impact Levels (SILs) and Significant Monitoring Concentrations (SMCs). These provisions were vacated and remanded by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia on January 22, 2013. DATES: This direct final rule will be effective May 13, 2014, without further notice, unless EPA receives adverse comment by April 14, 2014. If EPA receives adverse comment, we will publish a timely withdrawal of the direct final rule in the Federal Register informing the public that the rule will not take effect.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document ‘‘we,’’ ‘‘us,’’ or ‘‘our’’ refer to EPA. This section provides additional information by addressing the following: I. What is being addressed in this document? II. Have the requirements for approval of a SIP revision been met? III. What action is EPA taking? I. What is being addressed in this document? EPA is approving revisions into the SIP to include amendments to the Iowa air quality rules as they apply to Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) of Air Quality. The rules are amended to correspond with the Federal regulation for implementation of the PM2.5 PSD program as identified in 40 CFR 52.21. The following definitions are revised to match the Federal regulation: Baseline area; baseline date; enforceable permit condition; Federally enforceable; regulated New Source Review (NSR) pollutant, and significant. Revisions adopted by reference include ambient air increments that include thresholds for PM2.5, PSD exemptions to incorporate PM2.5, source impact analysis requirements to include PM2.5, and requirements for sources that impact Federal Class I areas to include PM2.5. Source obligation provisions are revised to match current Federal PSD regulations. This revision also clarifies the conditions whereby source owners and operators must keep records and the specific records that must be kept. For the purposes of record keeping, the Federal definition of ‘‘reasonable possibility’’ has been added. A rule has been added to establish provisions for rescinding a PSD permit and is commensurate with the Federal provisions. This action is also consistent with the state’s request to not include the SIP provisions relating to Significant Impact Levels and Significant Monitoring Concentrations. On January 22, 2013, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia vacated and remanded the provisions at 40 CFR 51.166(k)(2) and E:\FR\FM\14MRR1.SGM 14MRR1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 50 / Friday, March 14, 2014 / Rules and Regulations 52.21(k)(2) concerning implementation of the PM2.5 SILs and vacated the provisions at 40 CFR 51.166(i)(5)(i)(c) and 52.21(i)(5)(i)(c) (adding the PM2.5 SMC) that were promulgated as part of the October 20, 2010 rule, ‘‘Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) for Particulate Matter less than 2.5 Micrometers (PM2.5)—Increments, Significant Impact Levels and Significant Monitoring Concentrations,’’ 75 FR 64864. II. Have the requirements for approval of a SIP revision been met? The state submittal has met the public notice requirements for SIP submissions in accordance with 40 CFR 51.102. The submittal also satisfied the completeness criteria of 40 CFR part 51, appendix V. The revision meets the substantive SIP requirements of the CAA, including section 110 and implementing regulations. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES III. What action is EPA taking? EPA is approving the state’s request to revise the SIP to include amendments to the Iowa air quality rules as they apply to PSD of Air Quality. The rule is amended to correspond with the final Federal regulation necessary for PM2.5 implementation for the PSD program. This revision also revises source obligation provisions as they apply to recordkeeping, and provides a mechanism to allow industry to request rescission of a PSD permit, both of which will match federal regulations. Per the state’s July 23, 2013 request, EPA is not including provisions of the 2010 PM2.5 PSD—Increments, SILs and SMCs rule (75 FR 64865, October 20, 2010) relating to SILs and SMCs that were affected by the January 22, 2013 U.S. Court of Appeals decision into SIP. We are processing this action as a direct final action because the revisions make routine changes to the existing rules which are noncontroversial. Therefore, we do not anticipate any adverse comments. Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on part of this rule and if that part can be severed from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those parts of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Under the CAA, 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 CAA. Accordingly, this action VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:05 Mar 13, 2014 Jkt 232001 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 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 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, PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 14403 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 CAA, petitions for judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by May 13, 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).)

[EPA-R07-OAR-2014-0118; FRL-9907-77-Region 7]


Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; State of Iowa

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Direct final rule.

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

SUMMARY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is approving revisions 
to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) for the State of Iowa. These 
revisions will amend the SIP to include revisions to Iowa air quality 
rule, Chapter 33, ``Special Regulations and Construction Permit 
Requirements for Major Stationary Sources--Prevention of Significant 
Deterioration (PSD) of Air Quality.'' This rule amendment makes the 
state regulation consistent with the Federal regulation for the fine 
Particulate Matter (PM2.5) PSD program. This revision will 
amend source obligation provisions as they apply to recordkeeping and 
will provide a mechanism to allow industry to request rescission of a 
PSD permit, both of which match the Federal regulations. This action is 
also consistent with the state's request to not include, into the SIP, 
provisions relating to Significant Impact Levels (SILs) and Significant 
Monitoring Concentrations (SMCs). These provisions were vacated and 
remanded by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia on 
January 22, 2013.

DATES: This direct final rule will be effective May 13, 2014, without 
further notice, unless EPA receives adverse comment by April 14, 2014. 
If EPA receives adverse comment, we will publish a timely withdrawal of 
the direct final rule in the Federal Register informing the public that 
the rule will not take effect.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document ``we,'' ``us,'' or 
``our'' refer to EPA. This section provides additional information by 
addressing the following:

I. What is being addressed in this document?
II. Have the requirements for approval of a SIP revision been met?
III. What action is EPA taking?

I. What is being addressed in this document?

    EPA is approving revisions into the SIP to include amendments to 
the Iowa air quality rules as they apply to Prevention of Significant 
Deterioration (PSD) of Air Quality.
    The rules are amended to correspond with the Federal regulation for 
implementation of the PM2.5 PSD program as identified in 40 
CFR 52.21.
    The following definitions are revised to match the Federal 
regulation: Baseline area; baseline date; enforceable permit condition; 
Federally enforceable; regulated New Source Review (NSR) pollutant, and 
significant.
    Revisions adopted by reference include ambient air increments that 
include thresholds for PM2.5, PSD exemptions to incorporate 
PM2.5, source impact analysis requirements to include 
PM2.5, and requirements for sources that impact Federal 
Class I areas to include PM2.5. Source obligation provisions 
are revised to match current Federal PSD regulations. This revision 
also clarifies the conditions whereby source owners and operators must 
keep records and the specific records that must be kept. For the 
purposes of record keeping, the Federal definition of ``reasonable 
possibility'' has been added. A rule has been added to establish 
provisions for rescinding a PSD permit and is commensurate with the 
Federal provisions.
    This action is also consistent with the state's request to not 
include the SIP provisions relating to Significant Impact Levels and 
Significant Monitoring Concentrations. On January 22, 2013, the U.S. 
Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia vacated and remanded the 
provisions at 40 CFR 51.166(k)(2) and

[[Page 14403]]

52.21(k)(2) concerning implementation of the PM2.5 SILs and 
vacated the provisions at 40 CFR 51.166(i)(5)(i)(c) and 
52.21(i)(5)(i)(c) (adding the PM2.5 SMC) that were 
promulgated as part of the October 20, 2010 rule, ``Prevention of 
Significant Deterioration (PSD) for Particulate Matter less than 2.5 
Micrometers (PM2.5)--Increments, Significant Impact Levels 
and Significant Monitoring Concentrations,'' 75 FR 64864.

II. Have the requirements for approval of a SIP revision been met?

    The state submittal has met the public notice requirements for SIP 
submissions in accordance with 40 CFR 51.102. The submittal also 
satisfied the completeness criteria of 40 CFR part 51, appendix V. The 
revision meets the substantive SIP requirements of the CAA, including 
section 110 and implementing regulations.

III. What action is EPA taking?

    EPA is approving the state's request to revise the SIP to include 
amendments to the Iowa air quality rules as they apply to PSD of Air 
Quality. The rule is amended to correspond with the final Federal 
regulation necessary for PM2.5 implementation for the PSD 
program. This revision also revises source obligation provisions as 
they apply to recordkeeping, and provides a mechanism to allow industry 
to request rescission of a PSD permit, both of which will match federal 
regulations. Per the state's July 23, 2013 request, EPA is not 
including provisions of the 2010 PM2.5 PSD--Increments, SILs 
and SMCs rule (75 FR 64865, October 20, 2010) relating to SILs and SMCs 
that were affected by the January 22, 2013 U.S. Court of Appeals 
decision into SIP.
    We are processing this action as a direct final action because the 
revisions make routine changes to the existing rules which are 
noncontroversial. Therefore, we do not anticipate any adverse comments. 
Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on part of this rule 
and if that part can be severed from the remainder of the rule, EPA may 
adopt as final those parts of the rule that are not the subject of an 
adverse comment.

Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under the CAA, 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 CAA. 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 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 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 CAA, petitions for judicial review 
of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for 
the appropriate circuit by May 13, 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).)
