Download as PDF 72548 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 235 / Monday, December 8, 2014 / Rules and Regulations Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 This rule is not a major rule as defined by § 804 of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996. This rule will not result in an annual effect on the economy of $100,000,000 or more; a major increase in costs or prices; or significant adverse effects on competition, employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or on the ability of United States-based companies to compete with foreignbased companies in domestic and export markets. Inmate smoking has been gradually decreasing in Bureau facilities since publication of the final rule in 2004 (see 69 FR 13737, Mar. 24, 2004), which restricted smoking to authorized outdoor areas except for authorized religious activities, and allowed Wardens to choose, with Regional Director concurrence, not to designate smoking areas at all for general inmate use (except for authorized religious activity). The determination to remove tobacco products from sale in the inmate commissaries likewise occurred several years ago when it became apparent that inmate smoking was decreasing. Therefore, the economic impact is expected to be minimal. List of Subjects in 28 CFR Part 551 Prisoners. 551.160 Purpose and scope. 551.161 Definitions. 551.162 Smoking generally prohibited. 551.163 Possession of smoking apparatus and tobacco prohibited. § 551.160 Purpose and scope. To advance towards becoming a clean air environment and to protect the health and safety of staff and inmates, the Bureau of Prisons will restrict areas and circumstances where smoking is permitted within its institutions and offices. § 551.161 Definitions. For the purposes of this subpart, smoking is defined as inhaling the smoke of any substance through the use of smoking apparatus including, but not limited to, cigars, cigarettes, or pipes. § 551.162 Smoking generally prohibited. Smoking is generally prohibited in and on the grounds of Bureau institutions and offices, with the following two exceptions: (a) Smoking is permitted as part of an authorized inmate religious activity; and (b) For Bureau staff and official visitors, smoking is permitted only in smoking areas designated by the Warden. § 551.163 Possession of smoking apparatus and tobacco prohibited. Possession of smoking apparatus and tobacco in any form is prohibited for inmates, unless as part of an authorized inmate religious activity. Charles E. Samuels, Jr., Director, Bureau of Prisons.

Background The SIP is a living document which a state revises as necessary to address its unique air pollution problems. Therefore, the EPA from time to time, must take action on SIP revisions containing new and/or revised regulations as being part of the SIP. On May 22, 1997, the EPA revised the procedures for incorporating by reference Federally-approved SIPs, as a result of consultations between the EPA and the Office of the Federal Register (OFR) (62 FR 27968). The description of the revised SIP document, IBR procedures and ‘‘Identification of plan’’ format are discussed in further detail in the May 22, 1997 Federal Register document. On March 20, 2013, the EPA published a Federal Register beginning the new IBR procedure for Washington (78 FR 17108). Since the publication of the last IBR update, the EPA approved into the Washington SIP the regulatory changes listed below. The EPA also reorganized the content and order of the tables contained in 40 CFR 52.2470 paragraph (c) ‘‘EPA approved regulations’’ in order to acknowledge the EPA’s approval of Washington Administrative Code E:\FR\FM\08DER1.SGM 08DER1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 235 / Monday, December 8, 2014 / Rules and Regulations (WAC) 173–400–020 which divides implementation of portions of the Washington SIP on a jurisdictional basis, with a corresponding effect on the air program agencies listed in Tables 4 through 10.

Approved, But Not Incorporated by Reference Regulations As described in the proposed approval for the Thurston County second 10-year coarse particulate matter (PM10) limited maintenance plan, the EPA reviews and approves state submissions to ensure they provide adequate enforcement authority (78 FR 47259, August 5, 2013). However, regulations describing agency enforcement authority are not incorporated into the SIP to avoid potential conflict with the EPA’s independent authorities. The EPA originally erred in incorporating WAC 173–433–200, ‘‘Regulatory Actions and Penalties’’ by reference into the SIP. In the final approval of the Thurston County Second 10-year PM10 Limited Maintenance Plan the EPA corrected this error by moving WAC 173–433–200 from 40 CFR 52.2470(c) EPA approved regulations to 40 CFR 52.2470(e) EPA Approved Nonregulatory Provisions and Quasi-Regulatory Measures (78 FR 61188, October 3, 2013). tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES E. Source-Specific Requirements The EPA modified 40 CFR 52.2470(d) to include the following source-specific requirements: BP Cherry Point Refinery (Administrative Order No. 7836), Alcoa Intalco Works (Administrative Order No. 7837, Revision 1), Tesoro Refining and Marketing Company (Administrative Order 7838), Port Townsend Paper Corporation (Administrative Order No. 7839, Revision 1), Lafarge North America, Inc. Seattle, Wa. (Administrative Revised Order No. 7841), and Weyerhaeuser Corporation, Longview, Wa. (Administrative Order No. 7840). For more information see 79 FR 33438 (June 11, 2014). II. EPA Action In this action, the EPA is announcing the update to the IBR material as of October 7, 2014. The EPA is also correcting a typographical error in paragraph 52.2470(c). In ‘‘Table 2— Additional Regulations Approved for Washington Department of Ecology VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:55 Dec 05, 2014 Jkt 235001 (Ecology) Direct Jurisdiction’’ the EPA is correcting the entry for WAC 173–400– 050 to add 173–400–050(2) as an exception in the ‘‘Explanations’’ column. The EPA has determined that today’s rule falls under the ‘‘good cause’’ exemption in section 553(b)(3)(B) of the Administrative Procedures Act (APA) which, upon finding ‘‘good cause,’’ authorizes agencies to dispense with public participation and section 553(d)(3) which allows an agency to make a rule effective immediately (thereby avoiding the 30-day delayed effective date otherwise provided for in the APA). Today’s rule simply codifies provisions which are already in effect as a matter of law in Federal and approved State programs. Under section 553 of the APA, an agency may find good cause where procedures are ‘‘impractical, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Public comment is ‘‘unnecessary’’ and ‘‘contrary to the public interest’’ since the codification only reflects existing law. Immediate notice in the CFR benefits the public by removing outdated citations and incorrect table entries. III. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews A. General Requirements Under the Clean Air Act (CAA), the Administrator is required to approve a SIP submission that complies with the provisions of the CAA 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 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 (Public Law 104–4); PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 • 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 this action does not involve technical standards; 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). The SIP is not approved to apply on any Indian reservation land in Washington except as specifically noted below and is also not approved to apply in any other area where the EPA or an Indian tribe has demonstrated that a tribe has jurisdiction. In those areas of Indian country, the rule does not have tribal implications as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), nor will it impose substantial direct costs on tribal governments or preempt tribal law. Washington’s SIP is approved to apply on non-trust land within the exterior boundaries of the Puyallup Indian Reservation, also known as the 1873 Survey Area. Under the Puyallup Tribe of Indians Settlement Act of 1989, 25 U.S.C. 1773, Congress explicitly provided state and local agencies in Washington authority over activities on non-trust lands within the 1873 Survey Area. B. Submission to Congress and the Comptroller General 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. The 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. This rule is not a ‘‘major rule’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2). E:\FR\FM\08DER1.SGM 08DER1 72551 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 235 / Monday, December 8, 2014 / Rules and Regulations C. Petitions for Judicial Review The EPA has also determined that the provisions of section 307(b)(1) of the CAA pertaining to petitions for judicial review are not applicable to this action. Prior EPA rulemaking actions for each individual component of the Washington SIP compilations had previously afforded interested parties the opportunity to file a petition for judicial review in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit within 60 days of such rulemaking action. Thus, the EPA sees no need in this action to reopen the 60day period for filing such petitions for judicial review for this ‘‘Identification of plan’’ update action for Washington.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The SIP is a living document which a state revises as necessary to 
address its unique air pollution problems. Therefore, the EPA from time 
to time, must take action on SIP revisions containing new and/or 
revised regulations as being part of the SIP. On May 22, 1997, the EPA 
revised the procedures for incorporating by reference Federally-
approved SIPs, as a result of consultations between the EPA and the 
Office of the Federal Register (OFR) (62 FR 27968). The description of 
the revised SIP document, IBR procedures and ``Identification of plan'' 
format are discussed in further detail in the May 22, 1997 Federal 
Register document. On March 20, 2013, the EPA published a Federal 
Register beginning the new IBR procedure for Washington (78 FR 17108).
    Since the publication of the last IBR update, the EPA approved into 
the Washington SIP the regulatory changes listed below. The EPA also 
reorganized the content and order of the tables contained in 40 CFR 
52.2470 paragraph (c) ``EPA approved regulations'' in order to 
acknowledge the EPA's approval of Washington Administrative Code

[[Page 72549]]

(WAC) 173-400-020 which divides implementation of portions of the 
Washington SIP on a jurisdictional basis, with a corresponding effect 
on the air program agencies listed in Tables 4 through 10. This 
division of the Washington SIP on a jurisdictional basis is described 
in more detail in a final rulemaking published October 3, 2014 (79 FR 
59653).

D. Approved, But Not Incorporated by Reference Regulations

    As described in the proposed approval for the Thurston County 
second 10-year coarse particulate matter (PM10) limited 
maintenance plan, the EPA reviews and approves state submissions to 
ensure they provide adequate enforcement authority (78 FR 47259, August 
5, 2013). However, regulations describing agency enforcement authority 
are not incorporated into the SIP to avoid potential conflict with the 
EPA's independent authorities. The EPA originally erred in 
incorporating WAC 173-433-200, ``Regulatory Actions and Penalties'' by 
reference into the SIP. In the final approval of the Thurston County 
Second 10-year PM10 Limited Maintenance Plan the EPA 
corrected this error by moving WAC 173-433-200 from 40 CFR 52.2470(c) 
EPA approved regulations to 40 CFR 52.2470(e) EPA Approved 
Nonregulatory Provisions and Quasi-Regulatory Measures (78 FR 61188, 
October 3, 2013).

E. Source-Specific Requirements

    The EPA modified 40 CFR 52.2470(d) to include the following source-
specific requirements: BP Cherry Point Refinery (Administrative Order 
No. 7836), Alcoa Intalco Works (Administrative Order No. 7837, Revision 
1), Tesoro Refining and Marketing Company (Administrative Order 7838), 
Port Townsend Paper Corporation (Administrative Order No. 7839, 
Revision 1), Lafarge North America, Inc. Seattle, Wa. (Administrative 
Revised Order No. 7841), and Weyerhaeuser Corporation, Longview, Wa. 
(Administrative Order No. 7840). For more information see 79 FR 33438 
(June 11, 2014).

II. EPA Action

    In this action, the EPA is announcing the update to the IBR 
material as of October 7, 2014. The EPA is also correcting a 
typographical error in paragraph 52.2470(c). In ``Table 2--Additional 
Regulations Approved for Washington Department of Ecology (Ecology) 
Direct Jurisdiction'' the EPA is correcting the entry for WAC 173-400-
050 to add 173-400-050(2) as an exception in the ``Explanations'' 
column.
    The EPA has determined that today's rule falls under the ``good 
cause'' exemption in section 553(b)(3)(B) of the Administrative 
Procedures Act (APA) which, upon finding ``good cause,'' authorizes 
agencies to dispense with public participation and section 553(d)(3) 
which allows an agency to make a rule effective immediately (thereby 
avoiding the 30-day delayed effective date otherwise provided for in 
the APA). Today's rule simply codifies provisions which are already in 
effect as a matter of law in Federal and approved State programs. Under 
section 553 of the APA, an agency may find good cause where procedures 
are ``impractical, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.'' 
Public comment is ``unnecessary'' and ``contrary to the public 
interest'' since the codification only reflects existing law. Immediate 
notice in the CFR benefits the public by removing outdated citations 
and incorrect table entries.

III. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

A. General Requirements

    Under the Clean Air Act (CAA), the Administrator is required to 
approve a SIP submission that complies with the provisions of the CAA 
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 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 (Public Law 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 this action does not involve technical standards; 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).

The SIP is not approved to apply on any Indian reservation land in 
Washington except as specifically noted below and is also not approved 
to apply in any other area where the EPA or an Indian tribe has 
demonstrated that a tribe has jurisdiction. In those areas of Indian 
country, the rule does not have tribal implications as specified by 
Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), nor will it 
impose substantial direct costs on tribal governments or preempt tribal 
law. Washington's SIP is approved to apply on non-trust land within the 
exterior boundaries of the Puyallup Indian Reservation, also known as 
the 1873 Survey Area. Under the Puyallup Tribe of Indians Settlement 
Act of 1989, 25 U.S.C. 1773, Congress explicitly provided state and 
local agencies in Washington authority over activities on non-trust 
lands within the 1873 Survey Area.

B. Submission to Congress and the Comptroller General

    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. The 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. This rule is not a 
``major rule'' as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).

[[Page 72551]]

C. Petitions for Judicial Review

    The EPA has also determined that the provisions of section 
307(b)(1) of the CAA pertaining to petitions for judicial review are 
not applicable to this action. Prior EPA rulemaking actions for each 
individual component of the Washington SIP compilations had previously 
afforded interested parties the opportunity to file a petition for 
judicial review in the United States Court of Appeals for the 
appropriate circuit within 60 days of such rulemaking action. Thus, the 
EPA sees no need in this action to reopen the 60-day period for filing 
such petitions for judicial review for this ``Identification of plan'' 
update action for Washington.
