Direct final rule. In a final action published on June 11, 2014, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a final rule in the Federal Register concerning, in part, the promulgation of a Federal Implementation Plan (FIP) provision for regional haze in the State of Washington. This action identifies and corrects an error in that action by adding the factor to convert tons of sulfur dioxide (SO2) to pounds of SO2 that was inadvertently left out of the rule language for the FIP for the Alcoa Inc. Wenatchee Works. DATES: This rule is effective on January 23, 2015, without further notice, unless the EPA receives adverse comment December 24, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document wherever ‘‘we’’, ‘‘us’’ or ‘‘our’’ are used, we mean the EPA. This action corrects an inadvertent error in a final rule (79 FR 33438, June 11, 2014) related to the FIP requiring Best Available Retrofit Technology on Potline 5 at the Alcoa Inc. Wenatchee Works primary aluminum smelter (Alcoa Wenatchee Works) located in Malaga, Washington. The factor to convert tons of SO2 to pounds of SO2 was inadvertently left out of the rule language included in 40 CFR 52.2502(b)(1)(i). Today’s action corrects the formula Alcoa Wenatchee Works must use to demonstrate compliance with the SO2 emission limitation for Potline 5, on a calendar month basis, by adding the factor ’’ x (2000 pounds per ton)’’. As corrected, the formula in 40 CFR 52.5202(b)(1)(i) now reads as set forth in the regulatory text of this final rule. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:29 Nov 21, 2014 Jkt 235001 Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Under the Clean Air Act, 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, the EPA’s role is to approve state choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the Clean Air Act. Where a SIP provision does not meet Federal requirements and is disapproved by the EPA, it has the authority to promulgate FIP provisions that meet the Federal requirements. This action merely corrects an inadvertent error in a previous FIP promulgation 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 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 Clean Air Act; and • does not provide the 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). This rule does not have tribal implications as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000) because it merely corrects an PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 inadvertent error in a formula that applies to a single facility, the Alcoa, Inc. Wenatchee Works, and therefore does not have direct and substantial effects on Tribal governments. Thus Executive Order 13175 does not apply. 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 January 23, 2015. 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 the 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).)

Final rule. ACTION: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is taking final action finding that the District of Columbia and seven states (Alaska, Arkansas, Hawaii, Minnesota, New Jersey, Vermont and Washington) have not submitted complete infrastructure State Implementation Plans (SIPs) that provide the basic Clean Air Act (CAA) program elements necessary to implement the 2010 nitrogen dioxide (NO2) primary national ambient air quality standard (NAAQS).

DATES: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY AGENCY: remaining four out of the seven states (Hawaii, Minnesota, New Jersey and Washington) have made submittals that are partially incomplete due to the lack of complete SIP approved Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) permit programs. The purpose of an infrastructure SIP submission is to assure that a state, local or tribal air agency’s SIP contains the necessary structural requirements for any new or revised NAAQS. The remaining 43 states have made complete submissions. Each finding of failure to submit a complete infrastructure SIP establishes a 24-month deadline for the EPA to promulgate a Federal Implementation Plan (FIP) to address the outstanding SIP elements unless, prior to the EPA promulgating a FIP, the affected air agency submits, and the EPA approves, a revised SIP that corrects the deficiency. In those areas without a state-adopted PSD permit program, the FIP obligation has already been met through federal regulations that govern PSD permits issued in some cases by the EPA and in other cases by state or local agencies under delegation agreements. Jkt 235001 I. General Information A. Notice and Comment Under the Administrative Procedures Act (APA) Section 553 of the APA, 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), provides that, when an agency for good cause finds that notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary or contrary to the public interest, the agency may issue a rule without providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. The EPA has determined that there is good cause for making this rule final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment because no significant EPA judgment is involved in making a finding of failure to submit SIPs, or elements of SIPs, required by the CAA, where states have made no submissions or incomplete submissions, to meet the requirement. Thus, notice and public procedure are unnecessary. The EPA finds that this constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B). PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 69769 B.

Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; State of 
Washington; Regional Haze State Implementation Plan; Federal 
Implementation Plan for Best Available Retrofit Technology for Alcoa 
Intalco Operations, Tesoro Refining and Marketing, and Alcoa Wenatchee

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Direct final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In a final action published on June 11, 2014, the 
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a final rule in the 
Federal Register concerning, in part, the promulgation of a Federal 
Implementation Plan (FIP) provision for regional haze in the State of 
Washington. This action identifies and corrects an error in that action 
by adding the factor to convert tons of sulfur dioxide (SO2) 
to pounds of SO2 that was inadvertently left out of the rule 
language for the FIP for the Alcoa Inc. Wenatchee Works.

DATES: This rule is effective on January 23, 2015, without further 
notice, unless the EPA receives adverse comment December 24, 2014. If 
the EPA receives adverse comment, we will publish a timely withdrawal 
in the Federal Register informing the public that the rule will not 
take effect.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document wherever ``we'', 
``us'' or ``our'' are used, we mean the EPA.
    This action corrects an inadvertent error in a final rule (79 FR 
33438, June 11, 2014) related to the FIP requiring Best Available 
Retrofit Technology on Potline 5 at the Alcoa Inc. Wenatchee Works 
primary aluminum smelter (Alcoa Wenatchee Works) located in Malaga, 
Washington. The factor to convert tons of SO2 to pounds of 
SO2 was inadvertently left out of the rule language included 
in 40 CFR 52.2502(b)(1)(i). Today's action corrects the formula Alcoa 
Wenatchee Works must use to demonstrate compliance with the 
SO2 emission limitation for Potline 5, on a calendar month 
basis, by adding the factor '' x (2000 pounds per ton)''. As corrected, 
the formula in 40 CFR 52.5202(b)(1)(i) now reads as set forth in the 
regulatory text of this final rule.

Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under the Clean Air Act, 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, the EPA's role is to approve state 
choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the Clean Air Act. 
Where a SIP provision does not meet Federal requirements and is 
disapproved by the EPA, it has the authority to promulgate FIP 
provisions that meet the Federal requirements. This action merely 
corrects an inadvertent error in a previous FIP promulgation 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 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 Clean Air Act; and
     does not provide the 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).

This rule does not have tribal implications as specified by Executive 
Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000) because it merely corrects 
an inadvertent error in a formula that applies to a single facility, 
the Alcoa, Inc. Wenatchee Works, and therefore does not have direct and 
substantial effects on Tribal governments. Thus Executive Order 13175 
does not apply.
    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 January 23, 2015. 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 the 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).)
