The State’s Submittal. A. What documents and what rule did the state submit? that each one was adopted by the local air agency and submitted to EPA by the California Air Resources Board (CARB). Table 1 lists the RACT SIP documents addressed by this action with the date TABLE 1—SUBMITTED DOCUMENTS Local agency Document FRAQMD ....... 2006 Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) Analysis for State Implementation Plan (SIP) (‘‘2006 RACT SIP’’). Reasonably Available Control Technology State Implementation Plan Revision, Negative Declaration for Control Techniques Guidelines Issued 2006–2008 (‘‘2009 RACT SIP’’). Reasonably Available Control Technology Analysis and Negative Declarations (‘‘2014 RACT SIP’’). FRAQMD ....... FRAQMD ....... The FRAQMD 2006 RACT SIP submittal became complete by operation of law on January 11, 2008, and the FRAQMD 2009 RACT SIP submittal became complete by operation of law on April 27, 2010, each pursuant to CAA Adopted section 110(k)(1)(B). On January 23, 2015, EPA determined that the submittal for the FRAQMD 2014 RACT SIP met the completeness criteria in 40 CFR part 51 Appendix V, which must be met before formal EPA review. Submitted 12/4/06 7/11/07 6/1/09 10/27/09 8/4/14 9/29/14 For the rule submitted by the state, Table 2 lists the rule we are approving with the dates it was adopted by the local air agency and submitted to EPA by CARB. TABLE 2—SUBMITTED RULE Local agency Rule No. Document Amended Submitted FRAQMD ........ 3.8 Gasoline Dispensing Facilities ............................................................................ 6/2/14 11/6/14 B. Are there other versions of these documents and the rule? There are no previous submitted versions of FRAQMD’s 2006, 2009, and 2014 RACT SIPs. For Rule 3.8, we approved an early version: The Sutter County Rule 3.08(3.8), ‘‘Storage and Transfer of Gasoline’’, on May 3, 1982 (47 FR 18856). With the formation of FRAQMD in 1991, this rule was adopted with identical language in June 1991 to apply beyond just Sutter County to the entire larger FRAQMD area. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES C. What is the purpose of the RACT SIP submissions and the submitted rule revision? VOCs and nitrogen oxides (NOX) help produce ground-level ozone and smog, which harm human health and the environment. Section 110(a) of the CAA requires states to submit enforceable regulations that control VOC and NOX emissions. Sections 182(b)(2) and (f) require that SIPs for ozone nonattainment areas classified as moderate or above require implementation of RACT for any source covered by an EPA Control Techniques Guidance (CTG) document and any other major stationary source of VOCs or NOX. FRAQMD is subject to this requirement as the southern part of Sutter County in FRAQMD is designated and classified as a severe ozone nonattainment area for the 1997 and VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:08 Jul 07, 2015 Jkt 235001 2008 8-hour NAAQS for ozone (see 40 CFR 81.305). Therefore, FRAQMD must, at a minimum, adopt RACT-level controls for all sources covered by a CTG document and for all major nonCTG stationary sources of VOCs or NOX in south Sutter County. The District adopted its 2006 RACT SIP, with negative declarations, on December 4, 2006. FRAQMD adopted its 2009 RACT SIP revision, which included negative declarations for 11 new or updated CTGs issued from 2006 to 2008, on June 1, 2009. FRAQMD adopted its 2014 RACT SIP, with negative declarations, on August 2014. No comments were received on any of the three RACT SIP demonstrations. Along with the 2014 RACT SIP adoption, FRAQMD adopted Rule 3.8 which is designed to limit VOC emissions from displaced gasoline vapors while transferring gasoline into storage tanks and transport vessels. This rule is intended to fully satisfy the CTG design criteria for Stage I vapor control systems. II. EPA’s Evaluation and Action A. How is EPA evaluating the RACT SIP submissions and the submitted rule revision? FRAQMD regulates the Yuba County and Sutter County portions of the Sacramento Valley Air Basin. The southern part of Sutter County is designated and classified as a severe PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 ozone nonattainment area for the 1997 and 2008 8-hour national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for ozone (40 CFR 81.305). CAA Section 182(b)(2) and (f), as well as 40 CFR 51.912(a)(1) require that SIPs for ozone nonattainment areas classified as moderate or above require implementation of RACT for any source covered by a CTG document and any other major stationary source of VOCs or NOX. Any stationary source that emits or has a potential to emit at least 25 tons per year (tpy) of VOCs or NOX in a severe ozone nonattainment area is considered a major stationary source (see CAA sections 182(b(2)) and (f) and 302(j)). Where there are no existing sources covered by a particular CTG document or no other major stationary sources of VOCs or NOX, states may, in lieu of adopting RACT requirements, adopt negative declarations certifying that there are no such sources in the relevant nonattainment area (see Memorandum from William T. Harnett to Regional Air Division Directors, (May 18, 2006), ‘‘RACT Qs & As—Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) Questions and Answers’’ page 7). SIP rules must be enforceable (see CAA section 110(a)(2)), must not interfere with applicable requirements concerning attainment and reasonable further progress or other CAA requirements (see CAA section 110(l)), E:\FR\FM\08JYR1.SGM 08JYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 130 / Wednesday, July 8, 2015 / Rules and Regulations and must not modify certain SIP control requirements in nonattainment areas without ensuring equivalent or greater emissions reductions (see CAA section 193). Guidance and policy documents that we used to evaluate CAA section 182 RACT SIPs for FRAQMD include the following: 1. ‘‘Final Rule to Implement the 8Hour Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard—Phase 2’’ (70 FR 71612; November 29, 2005). 2. ‘‘Air Quality Designations and Classifications for the 8-Hour Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards; Early Action Compact Areas With Deferred Dates’’—Final Rule (69 FR 23858; April 30, 2004). 3. ‘‘State Implementation Plans, General Preamble for the Implementation of Title I of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990’’ (57 FR 13498; April 16, 1992). 4.

Implementation of the 2008 National Ambient Air Quality Standards for Ozone: State Implementation Plan Requirements’’—Final Rule (80 FR 12264; March 6, 2015). B. Does the RACT SIP submission meet the evaluation criteria? The 2006, 2009 and 2014 RACT SIPs each includes three elements, as described further below: 38961 1. Evaluations of VOC and NOX rules for sources subject to a CTG. 2. Negative declarations where there are no facilities subject to a CTG. 3. Negative declaration for major nonCTG sources of VOC or NOX. A summary of our evaluation of each element is provided below. For additional information concerning our evaluation, please refer to the Technical Support Documents (TSDs) concerning the 2006, 2009 and 2014 RACT SIPs and FRAQMD Rule 3.8, which are available in the docket for this action. 1. Evaluations of VOC and NOX Rules for Sources Subject to a CTG We believe that Rule 3.8 is consistent with the relevant requirements, as well as policy and guidance regarding enforceability, RACT, and SIP relaxations. We are not aware of information suggesting that additional controls are needed to fulfill RACT. 2. Negative Declarations Where There are no Facilities Subject to a CTG Negative declarations are only required for CTG source categories for which the District has no sources covered by the CTG. A negative declaration is not required for non-CTG source categories. Table 3 below lists the CTG source categories for the 2006, 2009 and 2014 RACT SIPs. The District indicated it does not currently have, nor does it anticipate sources subject to the CTGs in these categories in the future. We searched CARB’s emissions inventory database to verify there are no facilities in FRAQMD that might be subject to the CTGs listed below. We concur with the District’s negative declarations.

Negative Declaration for Major NonCTG Sources of VOC or NOX The 2006, 2009 and 2014 RACT SIPs each included a negative declaration for major non-CTG sources of VOC and NOX. EPA agrees that there are no major non-CTG sources of NOX or VOCs in the south Sutter County nonattainment area. 4. Conclusion We find that FRAQMD’s 2006, 2009, and 2014 RACT SIPs including the negative declarations and the Rule 3.8 revisions, adequately demonstrate that they satisfy RACT for the 1997 and 2008 8-hour ozone NAAQS. Our TSDs have more information on our evaluation of the three RACT SIP submissions and Rule 3.8. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES C. EPA Recommendations To Strengthen the RACT SIPs and the Rule Our TSD for Rule 3.8 describes additional revisions that we recommend for the next time FRAQMD modifies the rule. D. Public Comment and Final Action As authorized in section 110(k)(3) of the Act, EPA is fully approving the submitted SIP revisions because we believe they fulfill all relevant requirements. We do not think anyone will object to this approval, so we are finalizing it without proposing it in advance. However, in the Proposed Rules section of this Federal Register, we are simultaneously proposing approval of the same SIP revisions. If we receive adverse comments by August 7, 2015, we will publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register to notify the public that the direct final approval will not take effect and we will address the comments in a subsequent final action based on the proposal. If we do not receive timely adverse comments, the direct final approval will be effective without further notice on September 8, 2015. This will VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:08 Jul 07, 2015 Jkt 235001 incorporate these documents and rule into the federally enforceable SIP. Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on a specific provision of this SIP revision and if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the SIP revision, EPA may adopt as final those provisions of the SIP revision that are not the subject of an adverse comment. III. Incorporation by Reference In this rule, the EPA is finalizing regulatory text that includes incorporation by reference. In accordance with requirements of 1 CFR 51.5, EPA is finalizing the incorporation by reference of the FRAQMD rule described in the amendments to 40 CFR 52 set forth below. EPA has made, and will continue to make, this document available electronically through www.regulations.gov and in hard copy at the appropriate EPA office (see the ADDRESSES section of this preamble for more information). IV. 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, EPA’s role is to approve state choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the Clean Air Act. 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); PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 • 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.

In addition, the SIPs and the rule are not approved to apply on any Indian reservation land or in any other area where 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 and will not impose substantial direct costs on tribal governments or preempt tribal law as E:\FR\FM\08JYR1.SGM 08JYR1 38964 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 130 / Wednesday, July 8, 2015 / Rules and Regulations specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000). 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 September 8, 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 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)).

[EPA-R09-OAR-2015-0164; FRL-9927-76-Region 9]


Revisions to the California State Implementation Plan, Feather 
River Air Quality Management District

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Direct final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is taking direct 
final action to approve revisions to the Feather River Air Quality 
Management District (FRAQMD or the District) portion of the California 
State Implementation Plan (SIP). Included in this approval are the 
following three SIP demonstrations from FRAQMD: 2006 Reasonably 
Available Control Technology (RACT) Analysis for State Implementation 
Plan (SIP), November 2006; Reasonably Available Control Technology 
State Implementation Plan Revision Negative Declaration for Control 
Techniques Guidelines Issued 2006-2008, June 1, 2009 and; Reasonably 
Available Control Technology Analysis and Negative Declarations, July 
3, 2014. The first two demonstrations address the 1997 8-hour National 
Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for ozone, and the third 
demonstration addresses the 2008 8-hour NAAQS for ozone. These 
submitted SIP revisions contain FRAQMD's negative declarations for 
volatile organic compound (VOC) source categories. We are approving the 
submitted SIP revisions under the Clean Air Act as amended in 1990 (CAA 
or the Act). We are also approving a local rule to regulate VOC 
emissions from gasoline dispensing facilities.

DATES: This rule is effective on September 8, 2015 without further 
notice, unless EPA receives adverse comments by August 7, 2015. If we 
receive such comments, we will publish a timely withdrawal in the 
Federal Register to notify the public that this direct final rule will 
not take effect.

ADDRESSES: Submit comments, identified by docket number EPA-R09-OAR-
2015-0164, by one of the following methods:
    1. Federal eRulemaking Portal: www.regulations.gov. Follow the on-
line instructions.
    2. Email: steckel.andrew@epa.gov.

    The FRAQMD 2006 RACT SIP submittal became complete by operation of 
law on January 11, 2008, and the FRAQMD 2009 RACT SIP submittal became 
complete by operation of law on April 27, 2010, each pursuant to CAA 
section 110(k)(1)(B). On January 23, 2015, EPA determined that the 
submittal for the FRAQMD 2014 RACT SIP met the completeness criteria in 
40 CFR part 51 Appendix V, which must be met before formal EPA review.
    For the rule submitted by the state, Table 2 lists the rule we are 
approving with the dates it was adopted by the local air agency and 
submitted to EPA by CARB.

B. Are there other versions of these documents and the rule?

    There are no previous submitted versions of FRAQMD's 2006, 2009, 
and 2014 RACT SIPs. For Rule 3.8, we approved an early version: The 
Sutter County Rule 3.08(3.8), ``Storage and Transfer of Gasoline'', on 
May 3, 1982 (47 FR 18856). With the formation of FRAQMD in 1991, this 
rule was adopted with identical language in June 1991 to apply beyond 
just Sutter County to the entire larger FRAQMD area.

C. What is the purpose of the RACT SIP submissions and the submitted 
rule revision?

    VOCs and nitrogen oxides (NOX) help produce ground-level 
ozone and smog, which harm human health and the environment. Section 
110(a) of the CAA requires states to submit enforceable regulations 
that control VOC and NOX emissions. Sections 182(b)(2) and 
(f) require that SIPs for ozone nonattainment areas classified as 
moderate or above require implementation of RACT for any source covered 
by an EPA Control Techniques Guidance (CTG) document and any other 
major stationary source of VOCs or NOX. FRAQMD is subject to 
this requirement as the southern part of Sutter County in FRAQMD is 
designated and classified as a severe ozone nonattainment area for the 
1997 and 2008 8-hour NAAQS for ozone (see 40 CFR 81.305). Therefore, 
FRAQMD must, at a minimum, adopt RACT-level controls for all sources 
covered by a CTG document and for all major non-CTG stationary sources 
of VOCs or NOX in south Sutter County. The District adopted 
its 2006 RACT SIP, with negative declarations, on December 4, 2006. 
FRAQMD adopted its 2009 RACT SIP revision, which included negative 
declarations for 11 new or updated CTGs issued from 2006 to 2008, on 
June 1, 2009. FRAQMD adopted its 2014 RACT SIP, with negative 
declarations, on August 2014. No comments were received on any of the 
three RACT SIP demonstrations. Along with the 2014 RACT SIP adoption, 
FRAQMD adopted Rule 3.8 which is designed to limit VOC emissions from 
displaced gasoline vapors while transferring gasoline into storage 
tanks and transport vessels. This rule is intended to fully satisfy the 
CTG design criteria for Stage I vapor control systems.

II. EPA's Evaluation and Action

A. How is EPA evaluating the RACT SIP submissions and the submitted 
rule revision?

    FRAQMD regulates the Yuba County and Sutter County portions of the 
Sacramento Valley Air Basin. The southern part of Sutter County is 
designated and classified as a severe ozone nonattainment area for the 
1997 and 2008 8-hour national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for 
ozone (40 CFR 81.305). CAA Section 182(b)(2) and (f), as well as 40 CFR 
51.912(a)(1) require that SIPs for ozone nonattainment areas classified 
as moderate or above require implementation of RACT for any source 
covered by a CTG document and any other major stationary source of VOCs 
or NOX. Any stationary source that emits or has a potential 
to emit at least 25 tons per year (tpy) of VOCs or NOX in a 
severe ozone nonattainment area is considered a major stationary source 
(see CAA sections 182(b(2)) and (f) and 302(j)). Where there are no 
existing sources covered by a particular CTG document or no other major 
stationary sources of VOCs or NOX, states may, in lieu of 
adopting RACT requirements, adopt negative declarations certifying that 
there are no such sources in the relevant nonattainment area (see 
Memorandum from William T. Harnett to Regional Air Division Directors, 
(May 18, 2006), ``RACT Qs & As--Reasonably Available Control Technology 
(RACT) Questions and Answers'' page 7).
    SIP rules must be enforceable (see CAA section 110(a)(2)), must not 
interfere with applicable requirements concerning attainment and 
reasonable further progress or other CAA requirements (see CAA section 
110(l)),

[[Page 38961]]

and must not modify certain SIP control requirements in nonattainment 
areas without ensuring equivalent or greater emissions reductions (see 
CAA section 193).
    Guidance and policy documents that we used to evaluate CAA section 
182 RACT SIPs for FRAQMD include the following:
    1. ``Final Rule to Implement the 8-Hour Ozone National Ambient Air 
Quality Standard--Phase 2'' (70 FR 71612; November 29, 2005).
    2. ``Air Quality Designations and Classifications for the 8-Hour 
Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards; Early Action Compact

B. Does the RACT SIP submission meet the evaluation criteria?

    The 2006, 2009 and 2014 RACT SIPs each includes three elements, as 
described further below:
    1. Evaluations of VOC and NOX rules for sources subject 
to a CTG.
    2. Negative declarations where there are no facilities subject to a 
CTG.
    3. Negative declaration for major non-CTG sources of VOC or 
NOX.
    A summary of our evaluation of each element is provided below. For 
additional information concerning our evaluation, please refer to the 
Technical Support Documents (TSDs) concerning the 2006, 2009 and 2014 
RACT SIPs and FRAQMD Rule 3.8, which are available in the docket for 
this action.
1. Evaluations of VOC and NOX Rules for Sources Subject to a 
CTG
    We believe that Rule 3.8 is consistent with the relevant 
requirements, as well as policy and guidance regarding enforceability, 
RACT, and SIP relaxations. We are not aware of information suggesting 
that additional controls are needed to fulfill RACT.
2. Negative Declarations Where There are no Facilities Subject to a CTG
    Negative declarations are only required for CTG source categories 
for which the District has no sources covered by the CTG. A negative 
declaration is not required for non-CTG source categories. Table 3 
below lists the CTG source categories for the 2006, 2009 and 2014 RACT 
SIPs. The District indicated it does not currently have, nor does it 
anticipate sources subject to the CTGs in these categories in the 
future. We searched CARB's emissions inventory database to verify there 
are no facilities in FRAQMD that might be subject to the CTGs listed 
below. We concur with the District's negative declarations.

\1\ This item is not a CTG because EPA exempted perchloroethylene as a VOC for purposes of ozone SIPs. 61 FR
  4588 (February 7, 1996) (codified at 40 CFR 51.100(s)(1)).

3. Negative Declaration for Major Non-CTG Sources of VOC or 
NOX
    The 2006, 2009 and 2014 RACT SIPs each included a negative 
declaration for major non-CTG sources of VOC and NOX. EPA 
agrees that there are no major non-CTG sources of NOX or 
VOCs in the south Sutter County nonattainment area.
4. Conclusion
    We find that FRAQMD's 2006, 2009, and 2014 RACT SIPs including the 
negative declarations and the Rule 3.8 revisions, adequately 
demonstrate that they satisfy RACT for the 1997 and 2008 8-hour ozone 
NAAQS. Our TSDs have more information on our evaluation of the three 
RACT SIP submissions and Rule 3.8.

C. EPA Recommendations To Strengthen the RACT SIPs and the Rule

    Our TSD for Rule 3.8 describes additional revisions that we 
recommend for the next time FRAQMD modifies the rule.

D. Public Comment and Final Action

    As authorized in section 110(k)(3) of the Act, EPA is fully 
approving the submitted SIP revisions because we believe they fulfill 
all relevant requirements. We do not think anyone will object to this 
approval, so we are finalizing it without proposing it in advance. 
However, in the Proposed Rules section of this Federal Register, we are 
simultaneously proposing approval of the same SIP revisions. If we 
receive adverse comments by August 7, 2015, we will publish a timely 
withdrawal in the Federal Register to notify the public that the direct 
final approval will not take effect and we will address the comments in 
a subsequent final action based on the proposal. If we do not receive 
timely adverse comments, the direct final approval will be effective 
without further notice on September 8, 2015. This will incorporate 
these documents and rule into the federally enforceable SIP.
    Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on a specific 
provision of this SIP revision and if that provision may be severed 
from the remainder of the SIP revision, EPA may adopt as final those 
provisions of the SIP revision that are not the subject of an adverse 
comment.

III. Incorporation by Reference

    In this rule, the EPA is finalizing regulatory text that includes 
incorporation by reference. In accordance with requirements of 1 CFR 
51.5, EPA is finalizing the incorporation by reference of the FRAQMD 
rule described in the amendments to 40 CFR 52 set forth below. EPA has 
made, and will continue to make, this document available electronically 
through www.regulations.gov and in hard copy at the appropriate EPA 
office (see the ADDRESSES section of this preamble for more 
information).

IV. 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, EPA's role is to approve state 
choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the Clean Air Act. 
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 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 EPA with the discretionary authority to 
address disproportionate human health or environmental effects with 
practical, appropriate, and legally permissible methods under Executive 
Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994).

In addition, the SIPs and the rule are not approved to apply on any 
Indian reservation land or in any other area where 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 and will not 
impose substantial direct costs on tribal governments or preempt tribal 
law as

[[Page 38964]]

specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000).
    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 September 8, 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 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)).
