Submitting CBI. Do not submit this information to EPA through http:// regulations.gov or email. Clearly mark the part or all of the information that you claim to be CBI. For CBI information in a disk or CD ROM that you mail to EPA, mark the outside of the disk or CD ROM as CBI and then identify electronically within the disk or CD ROM the specific information that is claimed as CBI. In addition to one complete version of the comment that includes information claimed as CBI, a VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:15 Oct 08, 2014 Jkt 235001 copy of the comment that does not contain the information claimed as CBI must be submitted for inclusion in the public docket. Information so marked will not be disclosed except in accordance with procedures set forth in 40 CFR part 2. 2. Tips for Preparing Your Comments. When submitting comments, remember to: a. Identify the rulemaking by docket number and other identifying information (subject heading, Federal Register date and page number). b. Follow directions—The agency may ask you to respond to specific questions or organize comments by referencing a Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part or section number. c. Explain why you agree or disagree; suggest alternatives and substitute language for your requested changes. d. Describe any assumptions and provide any technical information and/ or data that you used. e. If you estimate potential costs or burdens, explain how you arrived at your estimate in sufficient detail to allow for it to be reproduced. f. Provide specific examples to illustrate your concerns, and suggest alternatives. g. Explain your views as clearly as possible, avoiding the use of profanity or personal threats. h. Make sure to submit your comments by the comment period deadline identified. II. Delegation of Authority The CAA section 111(c) authorizes the EPA to delegate authority to any state agency which submits adequate regulatory procedures for implementation and enforcement of the NSPS program. The NSPS are codified at 40 CFR part 60. Delegation confers primary responsibility for implementation and enforcement to the respective state agency; however, the EPA also retains the concurrent authority to enforce the standards. Section 111(c) and an approved part 70 operating permits (title V) program authorizes states to receive automatic delegation of section 111 standards if the federal standards are incorporated by reference (IBR). The title V program approval is a demonstration that the state has the ability to implement and enforce existing section 111 standards and a commitment to implement and enforce future standards to assure the timely issuance or revision of part 70 permits. Once a state IBR’s NSPS, the state then has delegation automatically to implement and enforce those standards for affected sources when the NSPS are incorporated unchanged into PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 state rules. The EPA has determined that Region 8 state programs contain adequate and effective procedures for implementation and enforcement of those federal standards. On February 27, 2014, the EPA provided notice of automatic delegation to Region 8 state agencies to review and enforce all future NSPS standards that are incorporated into state rules. Letters (including enclosures) to each Region 8 state can be found at http://www.regulations.gov. III. CFR Update This action also replaces the EPA Region 8 delegation table in 40 CFR 60.4(c) with a Web address to inform the public of current NSPS delegations to Region 8 states. The table is being deleted because it no longer contains accurate information regarding NSPS delegations. A current delegation summary of NSPS delegations to Region 8 states is posted under the ‘‘Delegations of Authorities’’ link at: http:// www2.epa.gov/region8/air-program. Future delegation updates will be provided at this link on the EPA Region 8 Web site. The Web site will be updated on a quarterly basis and will replace the Federal Register Notice notifying the public of current NSPS delegation status of Region 8 states. IV. Final Action This action informs the public of NSPS delegations made to Region 8 states and replaces the delegation table in 40 CFR 60.4(c) with a Web address directing the public to current EPA Region 8 NSPS delegations. EPA is publishing this rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial amendment and anticipates no adverse comments since the action simply replaces a table in the CFR with a Web address in order to provide the public with more accurate information regarding NSPS delegations. However, in the Proposed Rules section of today’s Federal Register publication, EPA is publishing a separate document that will serve as the proposal to approve the revision if adverse comments are filed. This rule will be effective December 8, 2014 without further notice unless the Agency receives adverse comments by November 10, 2014. If the EPA receives adverse comments, EPA will publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register informing the public that the rule will not take effect. EPA will address all public comments in a subsequent final rule based on the proposed rule. The EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this time. E:\FR\FM\09OCR1.SGM 09OCR1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 196 / Thursday, October 9, 2014 / Rules and Regulations tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those provisions of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment. V. Statutory and Executive Order Review Under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, Oct. 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 approves state law as meeting Federal requirements and imposes no additional requirements beyond those imposed by state law. Accordingly, the Administrator certifies that this rule 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 rule approves pre-existing requirements under state law and 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 rule 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, Nov. 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, Aug. 10, 1999). This action merely delegates authority to implement and enforce Federal standards, and does not alter the relationship or the distribution of power and responsibilities VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:15 Oct 08, 2014 Jkt 235001 established in the CAA. This rule 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 delegates Federal standards. In delegating authority to states, EPA’s role is to approve state choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the CAA. In this context, voluntary consensus standards (VCS) are not a requirement for a state to accept delegation authority. 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 rule 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 CAA, petitions for judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by December 8, 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 PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 9990 60995 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: 

Definitions

    For the purpose of this document, we are giving meaning to certain 
words or initials as follows:
    (i) The words or initials Act or CAA mean or refer to the Clean Air 
Act, unless the context indicates otherwise.
    (ii) The words EPA, we, us or our mean or refer to the United 
States Environmental Protection Agency.
    (iii) The initials NSPS mean or refer to New Source Performance 
Standards.
    (iv) The initials CBI mean or refer to Confidential Business 
Information.
    (v) The initials CFR mean or refer to Code of Federal Regulations.
    (vi) The initials IBR mean or refer to Incorporate by Reference.

I. General Information

A. What should I consider as I prepare my comments for EPA?

    1. Submitting CBI. Do not submit this information to EPA through 
http://regulations.gov or email. Clearly mark the part or all of the 
information that you claim to be CBI. For CBI information in a disk or 
CD ROM that you mail to EPA, mark the outside of the disk or CD ROM as 
CBI and then identify electronically within the disk or CD ROM the 
specific information that is claimed as CBI. In addition to one 
complete version of the comment that includes information claimed as 
CBI, a copy of the comment that does not contain the information 
claimed as CBI must be submitted for inclusion in the public docket. 
Information so marked will not be disclosed except in accordance with 
procedures set forth in 40 CFR part 2.
    2. Tips for Preparing Your Comments. When submitting comments, 
remember to:
    a. Identify the rulemaking by docket number and other identifying 
information (subject heading, Federal Register date and page number).
    b. Follow directions--The agency may ask you to respond to specific 
questions or organize comments by referencing a Code of Federal 
Regulations (CFR) part or section number.
    c. Explain why you agree or disagree; suggest alternatives and 
substitute language for your requested changes.
    d. Describe any assumptions and provide any technical information 
and/or data that you used.
    e. If you estimate potential costs or burdens, explain how you 
arrived at your estimate in sufficient detail to allow for it to be 
reproduced.
    f. Provide specific examples to illustrate your concerns, and 
suggest alternatives.
    g. Explain your views as clearly as possible, avoiding the use of 
profanity or personal threats.
    h. Make sure to submit your comments by the comment period deadline 
identified.

II. Delegation of Authority

    The CAA section 111(c) authorizes the EPA to delegate authority to 
any state agency which submits adequate regulatory procedures for 
implementation and enforcement of the NSPS program. The NSPS are 
codified at 40 CFR part 60. Delegation confers primary responsibility 
for implementation and enforcement to the respective state agency; 
however, the EPA also retains the concurrent authority to enforce the 
standards.
    Section 111(c) and an approved part 70 operating permits (title V) 
program authorizes states to receive automatic delegation of section 
111 standards if the federal standards are incorporated by reference 
(IBR). The title V program approval is a demonstration that the state 
has the ability to implement and enforce existing section 111 standards 
and a commitment to implement and enforce future standards to assure 
the timely issuance or revision of part 70 permits. Once a state IBR's 
NSPS, the state then has delegation automatically to implement and 
enforce those standards for affected sources when the NSPS are 
incorporated unchanged into state rules. The EPA has determined that 
Region 8 state programs contain adequate and effective procedures for 
implementation and enforcement of those federal standards. On February 
27, 2014, the EPA provided notice of automatic delegation to Region 8 
state agencies to review and enforce all future NSPS standards that are 
incorporated into state rules. Letters (including enclosures) to each 
Region 8 state can be found at http://www.regulations.gov.

III. CFR Update

    This action also replaces the EPA Region 8 delegation table in 40 
CFR 60.4(c) with a Web address to inform the public of current NSPS 
delegations to Region 8 states. The table is being deleted because it 
no longer contains accurate information regarding NSPS delegations. A 
current delegation summary of NSPS delegations to Region 8 states is 
posted under the ``Delegations of Authorities'' link at: http://www2.epa.gov/region8/air-program. Future delegation updates will be 
provided at this link on the EPA Region 8 Web site. The Web site will 
be updated on a quarterly basis and will replace the Federal Register 
Notice notifying the public of current NSPS delegation status of Region 
8 states.

IV. Final Action

    This action informs the public of NSPS delegations made to Region 8 
states and replaces the delegation table in 40 CFR 60.4(c) with a Web 
address directing the public to current EPA Region 8 NSPS delegations.
    EPA is publishing this rule without prior proposal because the 
Agency views this as a noncontroversial amendment and anticipates no 
adverse comments since the action simply replaces a table in the CFR 
with a Web address in order to provide the public with more accurate 
information regarding NSPS delegations. However, in the Proposed Rules 
section of today's Federal Register publication, EPA is publishing a 
separate document that will serve as the proposal to approve the 
revision if adverse comments are filed. This rule will be effective 
December 8, 2014 without further notice unless the Agency receives 
adverse comments by November 10, 2014. If the EPA receives adverse 
comments, EPA will publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register 
informing the public that the rule will not take effect. EPA will 
address all public comments in a subsequent final rule based on the 
proposed rule. The EPA will not institute a second comment period on 
this action. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this 
time.

[[Page 60995]]

Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on an amendment, 
paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may be severed 
from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those provisions 
of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment.

V. Statutory and Executive Order Review

    Under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, Oct. 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 approves state law as meeting Federal requirements and imposes 
no additional requirements beyond those imposed by state law. 
Accordingly, the Administrator certifies that this rule 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 rule approves pre-existing requirements under state law and 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 rule 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, Nov. 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, Aug. 10, 1999). This action merely delegates authority to 
implement and enforce Federal standards, and does not alter the 
relationship or the distribution of power and responsibilities 
established in the CAA. This rule 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 delegates 
Federal standards.
    In delegating authority to states, EPA's role is to approve state 
choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the CAA. In this 
context, voluntary consensus standards (VCS) are not a requirement for 
a state to accept delegation authority. 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 rule 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 CAA, petitions for judicial review 
of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for 
the appropriate circuit by December 8, 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).)
