Receipt of Test Data Under the Toxic Substances Control Act, 23351-23352 [2014-09669]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 81 / Monday, April 28, 2014 / Notices turnover, which may affect future motor vehicle emissions inventories, lead to motor vehicle emissions estimates above the Tier 1 MVEBs. The determination will be made through the interagency consultation process and fully documented within the first conformity analysis that uses the Tier 2 MVEBs. Receipt of the submittal was announced on EPA’s transportation conformity Web site. No comments were received. The findings letter is available at EPA’s conformity Web site: http:// www.epa.gov/otaq/stateresources/ transconf/adequacy.htm. The adequate direct particulate matter (PM) and NOx MVEBs for Tier 1 and Tier 2 are provided in Table 1 and Table 2. TABLE 1—TIER 1 ON-ROAD MVEBS CONTAINED IN THE WASHINGTON AREA MAINTENANCE PLAN FOR THE 1997 PM2.5 NAAQS Year 2017 .......... 2025 ..........

Motor vehicle emissions budget for PM2.5 on-road emissions (tons per year) Mobile vehicle emissions budget for NOX on-road emissions (tons per year) 2,144 1,586 50,051 32,880 Transportation conformity is required by section 176(c) of the Clean Air Act (CAA). EPA’s conformity rule requires that transportation plans, transportation improvement programs, and projects conform to SIPs and establishes the criteria and procedures for determining whether or not they do. Conformity to a SIP means that transportation activities will not produce new air quality violations, worsen existing violations, or delay timely attainment of the national ambient air quality standards. The criteria by which we determine whether a SIP’s MVEBs are adequate for conformity purposes are outlined in 40 CFR 93.118(e)(4). EPA described the process for determining the adequacy of submitted SIP budgets in a July 1, 2004 preamble starting at 69 FR 40038 and VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:06 Apr 25, 2014 Jkt 232001 used the information in these resources in making this adequacy determination. The Commonwealth of Virginia did not provide emission budgets for sulfur dioxide (SO2), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), or ammonia for the Washington Area’s Maintenance Plan because it concluded that emissions of these precursors from motor vehicles are not significant contributors to the area’s PM2.5 air quality problem. The transportation conformity rule provision at 40 CFR 93.102(b)(2)(v) indicates that conformity does not apply for these precursors, due to the lack of motor vehicle emissions budgets for these precursors and state’s conclusion that motor vehicle emissions of SO2, VOCs, and ammonia do not contribute significantly to the area’s PM2.5 nonattainment problem. This provision of the transportation conformity rule predates and was not disturbed by the January 4, 2013 decision in the litigation on the PM2.5 implementation rule. EPA has preliminarily concluded that the Commonwealth’s decision to not include budgets for SO2, VOCs, and ammonia is consistent with the requirements of the transportation conformity rule. That decision does not affect EPA’s adequacy finding for the submitted direct PM and NOx MVEBs for the Washington Area’s Maintenance Plan. Please note that an adequacy review is separate from EPA’s completeness review, and should not be used to prejudge EPA’s ultimate approval action for the SIP. Even if EPA finds the budgets for the Washington Area’s Maintenance Plan adequate, the SIP could later be disapproved. The finding and the response to comments are available at EPA’s conformity Web site: http://www.epa.gov/otaq/ stateresources/transconf/adequacy.htm. Authority: 42 U.S.C. 7401–7671q.
