Notification of a Public Meeting of the Great Lakes Advisory Board, 26247-26248 [2014-10353]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 88 / Wednesday, May 7, 2014 / Notices implementation rule.1 EPA has preliminarily concluded that Maryland’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 TABLE 1—ON-ROAD MVEBS CONTAINED IN THE MARYLAND PORTION finding for the submitted direct PM and OF THE MARTINSBURG-HAGERS- NOX MVEBs for the Hagerstown TOWN, WV–MD 1997 PM2.5 NON- Maintenance Plan. Please note that an adequacy review ATTAINMENT AREA MAINTENANCE is separate from EPA’s completeness PLAN FOR THE 1997 PM2.5 NAAQS review, and should not be used to prejudge EPA’s ultimate approval action Mobile vehicle Motor vehicle for the SIP. Even if EPA finds the emissions emissions budgets for the Hagerstown budget for budget for Year NOX on-road PM2.5 on-road Maintenance Plan adequate, the SIP emissions emissions could later be disapproved. The finding (tons per year) (tons per year) and the response to comments are 2017 .......... 149.63 4,057.00 available at EPA’s conformity Web site: 2025 .......... 93.35 2,774.63 http://www.epa.gov/otaq/ stateresources/transconf/adequacy.htm. pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Web site: http://www.epa.gov/otaq/ stateresources/transconf/adequacy.htm. The adequate direct particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxides (NOX) MVEBs are provided in Table 1. 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 used the information in these resources in making this adequacy determination. The State of Maryland did not provide emission budgets for sulfur dioxide (SO2), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), or ammonia for the Hagerstown 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:25 May 06, 2014 Jkt 232001 Authority: 42 U.S.C. 7401–7671q.

Those actions were not part of the final rule recently remanded to EPA by the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia in NRDC v. EPA, No. 08–1250 (January 4, 2013), in which the Court remanded to EPA the implementation rule for the PM2.5 NAAQS because it concluded that EPA must implement that NAAQS pursuant to the PM-specific implementation provisions of subpart 4 of Part D of Title I of the CAA, rather than solely under the general provisions of subpart 1.
