Download as PDF 89418 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 238 / Monday, December 12, 2016 / Proposed Rules srobinson on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS projects conform to state air quality implementation plans and establishes the criteria and procedures for determining whether or not they do so. Conformity to a SIP means that transportation activities will not produce new air quality violations, worsen existing violations, or delay timely attainment of the NAAQS or the timely achievement of interim milestones. However, if the EPA determines that a SIP demonstrates that motor vehicle emissions are an insignificant contributor to the air quality problem, states are not required to establish motor vehicle emissions budgets or perform a regional emissions analysis for transportation conformity purposes.84 In section 6.1.2 of the Plan, the GBUAPCD provides its argument for why motor vehicle emissions are insignificant contributors to the PM10 problem in the Owens Valley PM10 NA. First, the District noted that motor vehicle tailpipe emissions and reentrained roadway dust contribute just 1.4 percent of the 2016 PM10 emissions. The District also observed that the State estimates the annual population growth (about 0.7 percent) and increase in vehicle miles traveled (about 1.2 percent annually) and argued that it is unlikely that ‘‘these emissions would grow to such an extent as to cause a NAAQS violation in the future.’’ Finally, the District pointed out the absence of measures in the SIP that control motor vehicle emissions. In light of these factors, the EPA concurs with the District’s conclusion that motor vehicle emissions are insignificant contributors to the PM10 problem in the Owens Valley. Accordingly, the GBUAPCD is not required to establish motor vehicle budgets in this plan or to perform regional emissions analyses for transportation conformity. III. Summary of the EPA’s Proposed Action The EPA is proposing to approve the Serious area 2016 PM10 Plan submitted by the State of California for the Owens Valley PM10 nonattainment area. Specifically, the EPA is proposing to approve the 2016 PM10 Plan with respect to the CAA requirements for public notice and involvement under section 110(a)(1); emissions inventories under section 172(c)(3); the control measures in Rule 433 under section 110(k)(3), as meeting the requirements of sections 110(a) and 189(b)(1)(B); RFP and quantitative milestones under section 189(c); the contingency measure in Rule 433 under section 172(c)(9); and 84 40 CFR 93.109(f).

The EPA is also proposing to approve the State’s request for an extension of the attainment date to June 6, 2017 pursuant to CAA sections 188 and 179. 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, the EPA’s role is to approve State choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the Clean Air Act. Accordingly, this proposed action merely proposes to approve State law as meeting federal requirements and does not impose additional requirements beyond those imposed by State law. For that reason, this proposed 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 disproportionate human health or environmental effects with practical, appropriate, and legally permissible methods under Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994).

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 specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000). We intend to offer to consult with local tribes during the comment period.

ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to update portions of the Outer Continental Shelf (‘‘OCS’’) Air Regulations. Requirements applying to OCS sources located within 25 miles of States’ seaward boundaries must be updated periodically to remain consistent with the requirements of the corresponding onshore area (‘‘COA’’), as mandated by section 328(a)(1) of the Clean Air Act, as amended in 1990 (‘‘the Act’’). The portions of the OCS air regulations that are being updated pertain to the requirements for OCS sources for which the Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District (‘‘Santa Barbara County APCD’’) and Ventura County Air Pollution Control District (‘‘Ventura County APCD’’) are the designated COAs. The intended effect of approving the OCS requirements for the Santa Barbara County APCD and Ventura County APCD is to regulate emissions from OCS sources in accordance with the requirements onshore.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Table of Contents I. Background Information A. Why is EPA taking this action? II. EPA’s Evaluation A. What criteria were used to evaluate rules submitted to update 40 CFR part 55? B. What requirements were submitted to update 40 CFR part 55? III. Incorporation by Reference IV. Administrative Requirements I. Background Information A. Why is EPA taking this action? On September 4, 1992, EPA promulgated 40 CFR part 55,1 which established requirements to control air pollution from OCS sources in order to attain and maintain federal and state ambient air quality standards and to comply with the provisions of part C of title I of the Act. Part 55 applies to all OCS sources offshore of the States except those located in the Gulf of Mexico west of 87.5 degrees longitude. Section 328 of the Act requires that for such sources located within 25 miles of a State’s seaward boundary, the requirements shall be the same as would be applicable if the sources were located in the COA. Because the OCS requirements are based on onshore requirements, and onshore requirements may change, section 328(a)(1) requires that EPA update the OCS requirements as necessary to maintain consistency with onshore requirements. Pursuant to section 55.12 of the OCS rule, consistency reviews will occur (1) at least annually; (2) upon receipt of a Notice of Intent under section 55.4; or (3) when a state or local agency submits a rule to EPA to be considered for incorporation by reference in part 55. This proposed action is being taken in response to the submittal of requirements by the Ventura County APCD. Public comments received in writing within 30 days of publication of this document will be considered by EPA before publishing a final rule. Section 328(a) of the Act requires that EPA establish requirements to control air pollution from OCS sources located within 25 miles of States’ seaward boundaries that are the same as onshore requirements. To comply with this background and information on the OCS regulations. 2 Each COA which has been delegated the authority to implement and enforce part 55 will use its administrative and procedural rules as onshore. PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 89419 statutory mandate, EPA must incorporate applicable onshore rules into part 55 as they exist onshore. This limits EPA’s flexibility in deciding which requirements will be incorporated into part 55 and prevents EPA from making substantive changes to the requirements it incorporates. As a result, EPA may be incorporating rules into part 55 that do not conform to all of EPA’s state implementation plan (SIP) guidance or certain requirements of the Act. Consistency updates may result in the inclusion of state or local rules or regulations into part 55, even though the same rules may ultimately be disapproved for inclusion as part of the SIP. Inclusion in the OCS rule does not imply that a rule meets the requirements of the Act for SIP approval, nor does it imply that the rule will be approved by EPA for inclusion in the SIP. II. EPA’s Evaluation A. What criteria were used to evaluate rules submitted to update 40 CFR part 55? In updating 40 CFR part 55, EPA reviewed the rules submitted for inclusion in part 55 to ensure that they are rationally related to the attainment or maintenance of federal or state ambient air quality standards or part C of title I of the Act, that they are not designed expressly to prevent exploration and development of the OCS and that they are applicable to OCS sources. 40 CFR 55.1. EPA has also evaluated the rules to ensure they are not arbitrary or capricious. 40 CFR 55.12(e). EPA has excluded administrative and procedural rules 2 that regulate toxics, which are not related to the attainment and maintenance of federal and state ambient air quality standards. B. What requirements were submitted to update 40 CFR part 55? 1. After review of the requirements submitted by the Santa Barbara County APCD against the criteria set forth above and in 40 CFR part 55, EPA is proposing to make the following Santa Barbara County APCD requirements applicable to OCS sources. Earlier versions of the District rules with a revised date are currently implemented on the OCS. The District rules with an adopted date are newly implemented on the OCS. The District rule with a repealed date is no longer implemented on the OCS. However, in those instances where EPA has not delegated authority to implement and enforce part 55, EPA will use its own administrative and procedural requirements to implement the substantive requirements. 40 CFR 55.14(c)(4).

Incorporation by Reference In this rule, the EPA is proposing to include in a final EPA rule regulatory text that includes incorporation by reference. In accordance with requirements of 1 CFR 51.5, the EPA is proposing to incorporate by reference the Santa Barbara County APCD and Ventura County APCD rules described in Tables 1 and 2, respectively, of this preamble. The EPA has made, and will continue to make, these materials available through www.regulations.gov and at the EPA Region IX Office (please contact the person identified in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section of this preamble for more information). IV. Administration Requirements Under the Clean Air Act, the Administrator is required to establish requirements to control air pollution from OCS sources located within 25 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:02 Dec 09, 2016 Jkt 241001 miles of States’ seaward boundaries that are the same as onshore air control requirements. To comply with this statutory mandate, EPA must incorporate applicable onshore rules into part 55 as they exist onshore. 42 U.S.C. 7627(a)(1); 40 CFR 55.12. Thus, in promulgating OCS consistency updates, EPA’s role is to maintain consistency between OCS regulations and the regulations of onshore areas, provided that they meet the criteria of the Clean Air Act. Accordingly, this action simply updates the existing OCS requirements to make them consistent with requirements onshore, without the exercise of any policy discretion by EPA. For that reason, this action: • Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993); PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 06/12/12 • 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 E:\FR\FM\12DEP1.SGM 12DEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 238 / Monday, December 12, 2016 / Proposed Rules srobinson on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS 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, as appropriate, disproportionate human health or environmental effects, using practicable and legally permissible methods, under Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994). In addition, this rule does not have tribal implications as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), 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, nor does it impose substantial direct compliance costs on tribal governments, nor preempt tribal law. Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. OMB has approved the information collection requirements contained in 40 CFR part 55 and, by extension, this update to the rules, and has assigned OMB control number 2060–0249. Notice of OMB’s approval of EPA Information Collection Request (‘‘ICR’’) No. 1601.07 was published in the Federal Register on February 17, 2009 (74 FR 7432). The approval expires January 31, 2012. As EPA previously indicated (70 FR 65897– 65898 (November 1, 2005)), the annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for collection of information under 40 CFR part 55 is estimated to average 549 hours per response, using the definition of burden provided in 44 U.S.C. 3502(2).

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 November 25, 2013. 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. This action may not be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2)).

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 55

[OAR-2004-0091; FRL-9956-07-Region 9]


Outer Continental Shelf Air Regulations; Consistency Update for 
California

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to 
update portions of the Outer Continental Shelf (``OCS'') Air 
Regulations. Requirements applying to OCS sources located within 25 
miles of States' seaward boundaries must be updated periodically to 
remain consistent with the requirements of the corresponding onshore 
area (``COA''), as mandated by section 328(a)(1) of the Clean Air Act, 
as amended in 1990 (``the Act''). The portions of the OCS air 
regulations that are being updated pertain to the requirements for OCS 
sources for which the Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control 
District (``Santa Barbara County APCD'') and Ventura County Air 
Pollution Control District (``Ventura County APCD'') are the designated 
COAs. The intended effect of approving the OCS requirements for the 
Santa Barbara County APCD and Ventura County APCD is to regulate 
emissions from OCS sources in accordance with the requirements onshore. 
The changes to

[[Page 89419]]

the existing requirements discussed in this document are proposed to be 
incorporated by reference into the Code of Federal Regulations and 
listed in the appendix to the OCS air regulations.

DATES: Any comments must arrive by January 11, 2017.

ADDRESSES: Submit comments, identified by docket number OAR-2004-0091, 
by one of the following methods:

I. Federal eRulemaking Portal: www.regulations.gov. Follow the on-
line instructions.
II. Email: steckel.andrew@epa.gov.
III. Mail or deliver: Andrew Steckel (Air-4), U.S. Environmental 
Protection Agency Region IX, 75 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA 
94105-3901.

    Instructions: All comments will be included in the public docket 
without change and may be made available online at www.regulations.gov, 
including any personal information provided, unless the comment 
includes Confidential Business Information (CBI) or other information 
whose disclosure is restricted by statute. Information that you 
consider CBI or otherwise protected should be clearly identified as 
such and should not be submitted through www.regulations.gov or email. 
www.regulations.gov is an ``anonymous access'' system, and EPA will not 
know your identity or contact information unless you provide it in the

I. Background Information

A. Why is EPA taking this action?

    On September 4, 1992, EPA promulgated 40 CFR part 55,\1\ which 
established requirements to control air pollution from OCS sources in 
order to attain and maintain federal and state ambient air quality 
standards and to comply with the provisions of part C of title I of the 
Act. Part 55 applies to all OCS sources offshore of the States except 
those located in the Gulf of Mexico west of 87.5 degrees longitude. 
Section 328 of the Act requires that for such sources located within 25 
miles of a State's seaward boundary, the requirements shall be the same 
as would be applicable if the sources were located in the COA. Because 
the OCS requirements are based on onshore requirements, and onshore 
requirements may change, section 328(a)(1) requires that EPA update the 
OCS requirements as necessary to maintain consistency with onshore 
requirements.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The reader may refer to the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, 
December 5, 1991 (56 FR 63774), and the preamble to the final rule 
promulgated September 4, 1992 (57 FR 40792) for further background 
and information on the OCS regulations.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to section 55.12 of the OCS rule, consistency reviews will 
occur (1) at least annually; (2) upon receipt of a Notice of Intent 
under section 55.4; or (3) when a state or local agency submits a rule 
to EPA to be considered for incorporation by reference in part 55. This 
proposed action is being taken in response to the submittal of 
requirements by the Ventura County APCD. Public comments received in 
writing within 30 days of publication of this document will be 
considered by EPA before publishing a final rule. Section 328(a) of the 
Act requires that EPA establish requirements to control air pollution 
from OCS sources located within 25 miles of States' seaward boundaries 
that are the same as onshore requirements. To comply with this 
statutory mandate, EPA must incorporate applicable onshore rules into 
part 55 as they exist onshore. This limits EPA's flexibility in 
deciding which requirements will be incorporated into part 55 and 
prevents EPA from making substantive changes to the requirements it 
incorporates. As a result, EPA may be incorporating rules into part 55 
that do not conform to all of EPA's state implementation plan (SIP) 
guidance or certain requirements of the Act. Consistency updates may 
result in the inclusion of state or local rules or regulations into 
part 55, even though the same rules may ultimately be disapproved for 
inclusion as part of the SIP. Inclusion in the OCS rule does not imply 
that a rule meets the requirements of the Act for SIP approval, nor 
does it imply that the rule will be approved by EPA for inclusion in 
the SIP.

II. EPA's Evaluation

A. What criteria were used to evaluate rules submitted to update 40 CFR 
part 55?

    In updating 40 CFR part 55, EPA reviewed the rules submitted for 
inclusion in part 55 to ensure that they are rationally related to the 
attainment or maintenance of federal or state ambient air quality 
standards or part C of title I of the Act, that they are not designed 
expressly to prevent exploration and development of the OCS and that 
they are applicable to OCS sources. 40 CFR 55.1. EPA has also evaluated 
the rules to ensure they are not arbitrary or capricious. 40 CFR 
55.12(e). EPA has excluded administrative and procedural rules \2\ that 
regulate toxics, which are not related to the attainment and 
maintenance of federal and state ambient air quality standards.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Each COA which has been delegated the authority to implement 
and enforce part 55 will use its administrative and procedural rules 
as onshore. However, in those instances where EPA has not delegated 
authority to implement and enforce part 55, EPA will use its own 
administrative and procedural requirements to implement the 
substantive requirements. 40 CFR 55.14(c)(4).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

B. What requirements were submitted to update 40 CFR part 55?

    1. After review of the requirements submitted by the Santa Barbara 
County APCD against the criteria set forth above and in 40 CFR part 55, 
EPA is proposing to make the following Santa Barbara County APCD 
requirements applicable to OCS sources. Earlier versions of the 
District rules with a revised date are currently implemented on the 
OCS. The District rules with an adopted date are newly implemented on 
the OCS. The District rule with a repealed date is no longer 
implemented on the OCS.

III. Incorporation by Reference

    In this rule, the EPA is proposing to include in a final EPA rule 
regulatory text that includes incorporation by reference. In accordance 
with requirements of 1 CFR 51.5, the EPA is proposing to incorporate by 
reference the Santa Barbara County APCD and Ventura County APCD rules 
described in Tables 1 and 2, respectively, of this preamble. The EPA 
has made, and will continue to make, these materials available through 
www.regulations.gov and at the EPA Region IX Office (please contact the 
person identified in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section of 
this preamble for more information).

IV. Administration Requirements

    Under the Clean Air Act, the Administrator is required to establish 
requirements to control air pollution from OCS sources located within 
25 miles of States' seaward boundaries that are the same as onshore air 
control requirements. To comply with this statutory mandate, EPA must 
incorporate applicable onshore rules into part 55 as they exist 
onshore. 42 U.S.C. 7627(a)(1); 40 CFR 55.12. Thus, in promulgating OCS 
consistency updates, EPA's role is to maintain consistency between OCS 
regulations and the regulations of onshore areas, provided that they 
meet the criteria of the Clean Air Act. Accordingly, this action simply 
updates the existing OCS requirements to make them consistent with 
requirements onshore, without the exercise of any policy discretion by 
EPA. For that reason, this action:
     Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' subject to 
review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under Executive 
Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993);
     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

[[Page 89421]]

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, as appropriate, disproportionate human health or environmental 
effects, using practicable and legally permissible methods, under 
Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994).
    In addition, this rule does not have tribal implications as 
specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), 
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, nor does it impose 
substantial direct compliance costs on tribal governments, nor preempt 
tribal law.
    Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501 
et seq., an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not 
required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays 
a currently valid OMB control number. OMB has approved the information 
collection requirements contained in 40 CFR part 55 and, by extension, 
this update to the rules, and has assigned OMB control number 2060-
0249. Notice of OMB's approval of EPA Information Collection Request 
(``ICR'') No. 1601.07 was published in the Federal Register on February 
17, 2009 (74 FR 7432). The approval expires January 31, 2012. As EPA 
previously indicated (70 FR 65897-65898 (November 1, 2005)), the annual 
public reporting and recordkeeping burden for collection of information 
under 40 CFR part 55 is estimated to average 549 hours per response, 
using the definition of burden provided in 44 U.S.C. 3502(2).
    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 November 25, 2013. 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. This action may not be challenged later in 
proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2)).
