SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The purpose of this action is to announce that on October 26, 2015, EPA Region 10, delegated partial administrative authority for implementation of certain provisions of the Colville FIP to the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation. See 40 CFR part 49, subpart M, sections 9951 through 9960, as authorized by 40 CFR 49.122 of the Federal Air Rules for Reservations (FARR), 40 CFR part 49, subpart C. I. Authority To Delegate Federal regulations at 40 CFR 49.122 provide the EPA authority to delegate to Indian Tribes partial administrative authority to implement provisions of the FARR, 40 CFR part 49, subpart C. Tribes must submit a request to the Regional Administrator that meets the requirements of 40 CFR 49.122. II. Request for Delegation On May 21, 2014, Chaitna Sinha of the Office of the Reservation Attorney of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation submitted to the Regional Administrator a request for delegation of certain provision of the Colville FIP. That request included all the information and demonstrations required by the FARR for delegation. A copy of all documentation is on file at the EPA Region 10, Seattle, Washington office (see addresses above). The Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation requested delegation for the following provisions: 40 CFR 49.9960(b) Rule for limiting visible emissions, 40 CFR 49.9960(i) General rule for open burning, and 40 CFR 49.9960(k) Rule for air pollution episodes. PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 12825 III. EPA Response to the Request for Delegation The EPA and the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation signed a delegation agreement that specifies the provisions and authorities delegated. The Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation are delegated the following provisions; 40 CFR 49.9960(b) Rule for limiting visible emissions, 40 CFR 49.9960(i) General rule for open burning, and 40 CFR 49.9960(k) Rule for air pollution episodes. In addition, the agreement delegates to the Tribe authority to investigate complaints and assist the EPA in inspections. The agreement also includes terms and conditions applicable to the delegation. A copy of the agreement is kept at EPA Region 10 at the address above. Prior to entering into the Delegation Agreement, the EPA solicited by letter, advice and insight on the proposed delegation from Okanogan County, Ferry County, City of Okanogan, Town of Nespelem, Town of Coulee Dam, Electric City, City of Omak, Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area, Bureau of Land Management, and the United States Forest Service. One comment supporting delegation was received. Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act, 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 today’s rule final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment because the EPA is merely informing the public of partial delegation of administrative authority to the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation and making a technical amendment to the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) by adding a note announcing the partial delegation. Thus, notice and public procedure are unnecessary. The EPA finds that this constitutes good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B). Moreover, since today’s action does not create any new regulatory requirements, the EPA finds that good cause exists to provide for an immediate effective date pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). IV.
