Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 50 / Friday, March 14, 2014 / Notices sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES period, which closed on October 25, 2013. The EPA reviewed each comment received and prepared a Response to Comments document for the two projects. After consideration of the expressed view of all interested persons, the pertinent federal statutes and regulations, the applications and supplemental information submitted by the applicants, and additional material relevant to the applications and contained in the Administrative Records, the EPA made final determinations in accordance with title 40 CFR part 52 and part 55 (for Statoil) to issue final air permits. Under 40 CFR 124.19(f)(2), notice of any final Agency action regarding a PSD permit must be published in the Federal Register. Section 307(b)(1) of the CAA provides for review of final Agency action that is locally or regionally applicable in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit. Such a petition for review of final Agency action must be filed within 60 days from the date of notice of such action in the Federal Register. For purposes of judicial review under the CAA, final Agency action occurs when a final PSD permit is issued or denied by the EPA and Agency review procedures are exhausted, per 40 CFR 124.19(f)(1). Any person who filed comments on the draft permits was provided the opportunity to petition the Environmental Appeals Board by the end of November 26, 2013 for the Statoil permit, by the end of December 26, 2013 for the PEEC permit, or by the end of January 17, 2014 for the TECO permit. No petitions were submitted for any of these permits. Therefore, the Statoil permit became effective on November 27, 2013. The PEEC permit became effective on December 27, 2013. This date was changed from December 25, 2013, as stated on the final permit, to correct for the effective date coinciding with a federal holiday. The TECO permit became effective on January 18, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Executive Order 12866: The Office of Management and Budget has 
exempted this action from the review requirements of Executive Order 
12866 pursuant to Section 6 of that order.
    Regulatory Flexibility Act: Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act 
(RFA), 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq., a Federal agency must prepare an initial 
regulatory flexibility analysis ``for any proposed rule'' for which the 
agency ``is required by section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act 
(APA), or any other law, to publish general notice of proposed 
rulemaking.'' The RFA exempts from this requirement any rule that the 
issuing agency certifies ``will not, if promulgated, have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.'' EPA has 
concluded that NPDES general permits are permits, not rulemakings, 
under the APA and thus not subject to APA rulemaking requirements or 
the RFA. Notwithstanding that general permits are not subject to the 
RFA, EPA has determined that these general permits, as issued, will not 
have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities.
