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 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 July 14, 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document ‘‘we,’’ ‘‘us,’’ or ‘‘our’’ refer to EPA. This section provides additional information by addressing the following: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:15 May 14, 2014 Jkt 232001 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? The Iowa Department of Natural Resources requested the SIP be amended to include revisions to the following air quality rules: Chapter 20, ‘‘Scope of Title-Definitions-Forms-Rules of Practice,’’ Chapter 22, ‘‘Controlling Pollution,’’ Chapter 31, ‘‘Nonattainment Areas,’’ and Chapter 33, ‘‘Special Regulations and Construction Permit Requirements for Major Stationary Sources-Prevention for Significant Deterioration of Air Quality.’’ The rule revisions adopt, by reference, regulation from 40 CFR 51.165 to incorporate review and permitting procedures that allow facilities to construct or modify existing sources in areas that are not in attainment with the National Ambient Air Quality Standards. The modifications were intended to streamline the rules and to make them more user-friendly. One of the most significant rule changes is that the nonattainment permitting rules are being moved to Chapter 31, ‘‘Nonattainment areas.’’ Iowa previously adopted requirements for nonattainment areas in rule 567–22.5(455B), and the provisions of this rule are retained as permits issued during previous nonattainment declarations remain in effect. The content of rule 567– 22.5(455B) is rescinded, and the content moved to 31.20. To be clear, the content remains unchanged and the state’s rules for nonattainment major New Source Review are no more or less stringent than the Federal regulations when the area was designated as nonattainment. The requirements for areas designated nonattainment after May 18, 1998 are in rules 567–31.3(455B) to 567–31.9 (455B). In addition, 567–20.1 updates information about the content of Chapter 22 and 31 and 567–20.2 which revises the definition of ‘‘excess emissions’’ to update the references to the nonattainment major NSR and prevention of significant deterioration rules. The state is also updating references to the conformity of general actions rule. Additional rule revisions are more general and administrative in nature. Those revisions include updating references and introductory rule language to synchronize with the transitioning of rule content; removing references to outdated guidance; and updating the list of attainment and unclassifiable areas in the state. PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 II. Have the requirements for approval of a SIP revision been met? The state submission has met the public notice requirements for SIP submissions in accordance with 40 CFR 51.102. The submission 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 revisions to the SIP for the State of Iowa. This rulemaking adopts regulations to be consistent with Federal review and permitting procedures that allow facilities to construct or modify existing sources in areas that are not in attainment with the NAAQS. Although incorporated by reference, a new chapter will include all nonattainment permitting regulations for the ease of the reader. References related to Federal regulations are being updated, including references in the definition of excess emission, and conformity of general actions rule. 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 E:\FR\FM\15MYR1.SGM 15MYR1 27765 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 94 / Thursday, May 15, 2014 / Rules and Regulations 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 July 14, 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).)

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?

    The Iowa Department of Natural Resources requested the SIP be 
amended to include revisions to the following air quality rules: 
Chapter 20, ``Scope of Title-Definitions-Forms-Rules of Practice,'' 
Chapter 22, ``Controlling Pollution,'' Chapter 31, ``Nonattainment 
Areas,'' and Chapter 33, ``Special Regulations and Construction Permit 
Requirements for Major Stationary Sources-Prevention for Significant 
Deterioration of Air Quality.''
    The rule revisions adopt, by reference, regulation from 40 CFR 
51.165 to incorporate review and permitting procedures that allow 
facilities to construct or modify existing sources in areas that are 
not in attainment with the National Ambient Air Quality Standards. The 
modifications were intended to streamline the rules and to make them 
more user-friendly. One of the most significant rule changes is that 
the nonattainment permitting rules are being moved to Chapter 31, 
``Nonattainment areas.'' Iowa previously adopted requirements for 
nonattainment areas in rule 567-22.5(455B), and the provisions of this 
rule are retained as permits issued during previous nonattainment 
declarations remain in effect. The content of rule 567-22.5(455B) is 
rescinded, and the content moved to 31.20. To be clear, the content 
remains unchanged and the state's rules for nonattainment major New 
Source Review are no more or less stringent than the Federal 
regulations when the area was designated as nonattainment. The 
requirements for areas designated nonattainment after May 18, 1998 are 
in rules 567-31.3(455B) to 567-31.9 (455B). In addition, 567-20.1 
updates information about the content of Chapter 22 and 31 and 567-20.2 
which revises the definition of ``excess emissions'' to update the 
references to the nonattainment major NSR and prevention of significant 
deterioration rules. The state is also updating references to the 
conformity of general actions rule. Additional rule revisions are more 
general and administrative in nature. Those revisions include updating 
references and introductory rule language to synchronize with the 
transitioning of rule content; removing references to outdated 
guidance; and updating the list of attainment and unclassifiable areas 
in the state.

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

    The state submission has met the public notice requirements for SIP 
submissions in accordance with 40 CFR 51.102. The submission 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 revisions to the SIP for the State of Iowa. This 
rulemaking adopts regulations to be consistent with Federal review and 
permitting procedures that allow facilities to construct or modify 
existing sources in areas that are not in attainment with the NAAQS. 
Although incorporated by reference, a new chapter will include all 
nonattainment permitting regulations for the ease of the reader. 
References related to Federal regulations are being updated, including 
references in the definition of excess emission, and conformity of 
general actions rule.

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

[[Page 27765]]

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 July 14, 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).)
