We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism principles and preemption requirements described in E.O. 13132. Also, this rule does not have tribal implications under E.O. 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it does 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. If you believe this rule has implications for federalism or Indian tribes, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section above. E. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531–1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with RULES F. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have determined that this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph 34(g) of Figure 2–1 of the Commandant Instruction. An environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination and a Categorical Exclusion Determination are available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this rule. VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:10 Apr 22, 2016 Jkt 238001 G.

Background On January 20, 2016 (81 FR 3078), EPA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPR) for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. In the NPR, EPA proposed approval of a revision to Pennsylvania’s SIP for the purpose of demonstrating attainment of the 2008 lead NAAQS in the Lower Beaver Valley Area. The formal SIP revision was submitted by Pennsylvania on January 15, 2015. On November 12, 2008 (73 FR 66964), EPA revised the lead NAAQS, lowering the level from 1.5 micrograms per cubic meter (mg/m3) to 0.15 mg/m3 calculated over a three-month rolling average. Following promulgation of a new or revised NAAQS, EPA is required by the CAA to designate areas throughout the United States as attaining or not attaining the NAAQS; this designation process is described in section 107(d)(1) of the CAA. On November 22, 2010 (75 FR 71033), EPA designated Vanport and Potter Townships in Beaver County, Pennsylvania as the Lower Beaver Valley Area for its nonattainment status with respect to the 2008 lead NAAQS. PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 24027 On November 22, 2011 (76 FR 72097), EPA revised the Lower Beaver Valley Area boundary to include Center Township. The designation of the Lower Beaver Valley Area as nonattainment for the 2008 lead NAAQS triggered requirements under section 191(a) of the CAA, requiring Pennsylvania to submit a SIP revision with a plan for how the Area will attain the 2008 lead NAAQS, as expeditiously as practicable, but no later than December 31, 2015.1 Section 179(a)(1) of the CAA establishes specific consequences if EPA finds that a state has failed to submit a SIP or, with regard to a submitted SIP, if EPA determines it is incomplete or if EPA disapproves it. Additionally, any of these findings also triggers an obligation for EPA to promulgate a federal implementation plan (FIP) if the state has not submitted, and EPA has not approved, the required SIP within 2 years of the finding pursuant to section 110(c) of the CAA. On February 25, 2014, the EPA issued a finding that Pennsylvania failed to make the required nonattainment SIP submission for the Lower Beaver Valley Area. 79 FR 10391. With this final approval of Pennsylvania’s Lower Beaver Valley attainment plan SIP in accordance with section 172(c) of the CAA, EPA no longer has any obligation to issue a FIP for the Lower Beaver Valley Area in accordance with section 110(c) of the CAA. II. Summary of SIP Revision On January 15, 2015, Pennsylvania through the Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) submitted an attainment plan for the Lower Beaver Valley Area as a SIP revision which includes a base year emissions inventory, an attainment demonstration, an analysis of RACM and RACT, provisions for RFP, and contingency measures. The SIP revision also includes as attainment control measures certain provisions of a November 21, 2012 consent order and agreement (COA) (specifically including paragraphs 3, 5, and 6) between PADEP and Horsehead Corporation (Horsehead), the largest source of lead in the Area at the time of designations. Pennsylvania’s attainment demonstration relied primarily on the emissions reductions achieved by the shutdown of the smelter equipment at Horsehead, as required by the COA. EPA’s analysis of the submitted attainment plan includes a review of 1 EPA determined that extension of the Lower Beaver Valley nonattainment area did not affect the required attainment date or SIP submission deadline for the Area.
