SUMMARY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dawn Richmond, Air Planning Office (AIR–2), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region IX, (415) 972–3207, richmond.dawn@epa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document, the terms ‘‘we,’’ ‘‘us,’’ and ‘‘our’’ refer to EPA. I. EPA’s Action On August 9, 2012 (77 FR 47530), EPA took final action to approve in part and disapprove in part a SIP revision submitted by Hawaii Department of Health (HDOH) on December 14, 2011 to address the infrastructure requirements of CAA section 110(a)(2) for the 1997 national ambient air quality standard (NAAQS) for ozone and the 1997 and 2006 NAAQS for fine particulate matter (PM2.5) (‘‘2011 Hawaii Infrastructure SIP’’). In this document, we are making certain corrections to the entries in the table in paragraph (3) of 40 CFR 52.620, PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 17869 clarifying the contents of the applicable plan as approved on August 9, 2012, and specifying the extent to which EPA disapproved the December 14, 2011 SIP submittal. Specifically, we are: • Correcting the title of the approved plan and the submittal date (the submittal date was December 14, 2011, not December 14, 2012); • Clarifying that the plan, as approved on August 9, 2012, does not include the public process documentation included in the December 14, 2011 SIP submittal; • Clarifying the specific statutory provisions approved on August 9, 2012, and the extent to which the approved existing SIP statutory provisions were thereby superseded, by listing all approved statutory provisions (including a few previously approved and not superseded) separately as nonregulatory provisions in the Hawaii SIP; and • Specifying the extent of our disapproval for the Hawaii Infrastructure SIP for the various elements under CAA section 110(a)(2). EPA has determined that today’s action falls under the ‘‘good cause’’ exemption in section 553(b)(3)(B) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) which, upon finding ‘‘good cause,’’ authorizes agencies to dispense with public participation where public notice and comment procedures are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. Public notice and comment for this action are unnecessary because today’s clarification of EPA’s August 9, 2012 final rule approving in part and disapproving in part the 2011 Hawaii Infrastructure SIP has no substantive impact on that approval and the clarification makes no substantive difference to EPA’s analysis as set out in that rule. In addition, EPA can identify no particular reason why the public would be interested in being notified of this clarification since the opportunity to comment on the action to approve in part and disapprove in part the 2011 Hawaii Infrastructure SIP was previously provided and no comments were received. EPA also finds that there is good cause under APA section 553(d)(3) for this clarification to become effective on the date of publication of this action. Section 553(d)(3) of the APA allows an effective date less than 30 days after publication ‘‘as otherwise provided by the agency for good cause found and published with the rule.’’ (5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3)). The purpose of the 30-day waiting period prescribed in APA section 553(d)(3), is to give affected parties a reasonable time to adjust their behavior and prepare before the final E:\FR\FM\31MRR1.SGM 31MRR1 17870 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 61 / Monday, March 31, 2014 / Rules and Regulations emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with RULES rule takes effect. Today’s rule, however, does not create any new regulatory requirements such that affected parties would need time to prepare before the rule takes effect. Rather, today’s rule simply clarifies the contents of the applicable plan as approved on August 9, 2012, and specifies the extent to which EPA disapproved the December 14, 2011 SIP submittal. For these reasons, EPA finds good cause under APA section 553(d)(3) for this clarification to become effective on the date of publication of this action. II. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993), this action is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ and therefore is not subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget. For this reason, this action is also not subject to Executive Order 13211, ‘‘Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use’’ (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001). This action merely clarifies the contents of the applicable Hawaii SIP as approved on August 9, 2012, and specifies the extent to which EPA disapproved the 2011 Hawaii Infrastructure SIP in the August 9, 2012 final rule. This clarification has no substantive impact on EPA’s August 9, 2012, approval and it imposes no additional requirements beyond those imposed by state law. Accordingly, the Administrator certifies that this action will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.). Because this clarification does not impose any additional enforceable duty beyond that required by state law, it 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). This clarification also does not have tribal implications because it will not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000). This action also does not have Federalism implications because it does not have substantial direct effects on the states, VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:18 Mar 28, 2014 Jkt 232001 on the relationship between the national government and the states, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government, as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999). This action merely clarifies the contents of a state plan implementing a Federal standard, and does not alter the relationship or the distribution of power and responsibilities established in the CAA. This action also is not subject to Executive Order 13045, ‘‘Protection of Children From Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks’’ (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), because it is not economically significant. In reviewing SIP submissions, EPA’s role is to approve state choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the CAA. In this context, in the absence of a prior existing requirement for the State to use voluntary consensus standards (VCS), EPA has no authority to disapprove a SIP submission for failure to use VCS. It would thus be inconsistent with applicable law for EPA, when it reviews a SIP submission, to use VCS in place of a SIP submission that otherwise satisfies the provisions of the CAA. Thus, the requirements of section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) do not apply. This action does not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). 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 rule 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. section 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 PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 appropriate circuit by May 30, 2014. Filing a petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule does not affect the finality of this rule 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. This action may not be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements (see section 307(b)(2)).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document, the terms ``we,'' 
``us,'' and ``our'' refer to EPA.

I. EPA's Action

    On August 9, 2012 (77 FR 47530), EPA took final action to approve 
in part and disapprove in part a SIP revision submitted by Hawaii 
Department of Health (HDOH) on December 14, 2011 to address the 
infrastructure requirements of CAA section 110(a)(2) for the 1997 
national ambient air quality standard (NAAQS) for ozone and the 1997 
and 2006 NAAQS for fine particulate matter (PM2.5) (``2011 
Hawaii Infrastructure SIP'').
    In this document, we are making certain corrections to the entries 
in the table in paragraph (3) of 40 CFR 52.620, clarifying the contents 
of the applicable plan as approved on August 9, 2012, and specifying 
the extent to which EPA disapproved the December 14, 2011 SIP 
submittal. Specifically, we are:
     Correcting the title of the approved plan and the 
submittal date (the submittal date was December 14, 2011, not December 
14, 2012);
     Clarifying that the plan, as approved on August 9, 2012, 
does not include the public process documentation included in the 
December 14, 2011 SIP submittal;
     Clarifying the specific statutory provisions approved on 
August 9, 2012, and the extent to which the approved existing SIP 
statutory provisions were thereby superseded, by listing all approved 
statutory provisions (including a few previously approved and not 
superseded) separately as nonregulatory provisions in the Hawaii SIP; 
and
     Specifying the extent of our disapproval for the Hawaii 
Infrastructure SIP for the various elements under CAA section 
110(a)(2).
    EPA has determined that today's action falls under the ``good 
cause'' exemption in section 553(b)(3)(B) of the Administrative 
Procedure Act (APA) which, upon finding ``good cause,'' authorizes 
agencies to dispense with public participation where public notice and 
comment procedures are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the 
public interest. Public notice and comment for this action are 
unnecessary because today's clarification of EPA's August 9, 2012 final 
rule approving in part and disapproving in part the 2011 Hawaii 
Infrastructure SIP has no substantive impact on that approval and the 
clarification makes no substantive difference to EPA's analysis as set 
out in that rule. In addition, EPA can identify no particular reason 
why the public would be interested in being notified of this 
clarification since the opportunity to comment on the action to approve 
in part and disapprove in part the 2011 Hawaii Infrastructure SIP was 
previously provided and no comments were received.
    EPA also finds that there is good cause under APA section 553(d)(3) 
for this clarification to become effective on the date of publication 
of this action. Section 553(d)(3) of the APA allows an effective date 
less than 30 days after publication ``as otherwise provided by the 
agency for good cause found and published with the rule.'' (5 U.S.C. 
553(d)(3)). The purpose of the 30-day waiting period prescribed in APA 
section 553(d)(3), is to give affected parties a reasonable time to 
adjust their behavior and prepare before the final

[[Page 17870]]

rule takes effect. Today's rule, however, does not create any new 
regulatory requirements such that affected parties would need time to 
prepare before the rule takes effect. Rather, today's rule simply 
clarifies the contents of the applicable plan as approved on August 9, 
2012, and specifies the extent to which EPA disapproved the December 
14, 2011 SIP submittal. For these reasons, EPA finds good cause under 
APA section 553(d)(3) for this clarification to become effective on the 
date of publication of this action.

II. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993), this 
action is not a ``significant regulatory action'' and therefore is not 
subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget. For this 
reason, this action is also not subject to Executive Order 13211, 
``Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy 
Supply, Distribution, or Use'' (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001). This action 
merely clarifies the contents of the applicable Hawaii SIP as approved 
on August 9, 2012, and specifies the extent to which EPA disapproved 
the 2011 Hawaii Infrastructure SIP in the August 9, 2012 final rule. 
This clarification has no substantive impact on EPA's August 9, 2012, 
approval and it imposes no additional requirements beyond those imposed 
by state law. Accordingly, the Administrator certifies that this action 
will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et 
seq.). Because this clarification does not impose any additional 
enforceable duty beyond that required by state law, it 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).
    This clarification also does not have tribal implications because 
it will not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian 
tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian 
tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between 
the Federal Government and Indian tribes, as specified by Executive 
Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000). This action also does not 
have Federalism implications because it does not have substantial 
direct effects on the states, on the relationship between the national 
government and the states, or on the distribution of power and 
responsibilities among the various levels of government, as specified 
in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999). This action 
merely clarifies the contents of a state plan implementing a Federal 
standard, and does not alter the relationship or the distribution of 
power and responsibilities established in the CAA. This action also is 
not subject to Executive Order 13045, ``Protection of Children From 
Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks'' (62 FR 19885, April 23, 
1997), because it is not economically significant.
    In reviewing SIP submissions, EPA's role is to approve state 
choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the CAA. In this 
context, in the absence of a prior existing requirement for the State 
to use voluntary consensus standards (VCS), EPA has no authority to 
disapprove a SIP submission for failure to use VCS. It would thus be 
inconsistent with applicable law for EPA, when it reviews a SIP 
submission, to use VCS in place of a SIP submission that otherwise 
satisfies the provisions of the CAA. Thus, the requirements of section 
12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 
(15 U.S.C. 272 note) do not apply. This action does not impose an 
information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork 
Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).
    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 
rule 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. 
section 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 May 30, 2014. Filing a 
petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule 
does not affect the finality of this rule 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. This action may not be challenged later in proceedings 
to enforce its requirements (see section 307(b)(2)).

3. Section 52.623 is revised to read as follows:


Sec.  52.623  Approval status.

    (a) With the exceptions set forth in this subpart, the 
Administrator approves Hawaii's plan for attainment and maintenance of 
the national standards. The State included various provisions in its 
plan to provide for the attainment of the State ambient air quality 
standards. As described in the Governor's letters of January 28, May 8, 
and May 22, 1972, these provisions were included for information 
purposes only and were not to be considered a part of the plan to 
implement national standards. Accordingly, these additional provisions 
are not considered a part of the applicable plan.
