SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The 125 Street (Triborough) Bridge, mile 1.3, across the Harlem River, has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 54 feet at mean high water and 59 feet at mean low water. The existing bridge operating regulations are found at 33 CFR 117.789(b)(1). The waterway is transited by commercial tugs, barges and recreational vessels. There have been no requests for bridge openings in the last two years. The bridge owner, Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority (TBTA), requested a temporary deviation from the normal operating schedule to facilitate rehabilitation of the mechanical and electrical components of the bridge. Under this temporary deviation, the 125 Street Bridge may remain in the closed position from January 17, 2017 through May 15, 2017. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so at any time. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies and there is an alternate route for vessels to pass. The Coast Guard will inform the users of the waterways through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the change in operating schedule for the bridge so that vessel operations can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. The Coast Guard notified known companies of the commercial vessels, NYPD, and FDNY in the area and they have no objections to the temporary deviation. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. ADDRESSES: Dated: December 15, 2016. C.J.

EPA Action III. Incorporation by Reference IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews I. Proposed Action On August 19, 2016 (81 FR 55402), the EPA proposed a limited approval and limited disapproval (LA/LD) or a 93821 full approval (as noted in the table) of the following rules that were submitted for incorporation into the Butte County portion of the California SIP. TABLE 1—SUBMITTED NSR RULES Rule No. Rule title 400 ......... 401 ......... 432 ......... Permit Requirements ............................................................................................ Permit Exemptions ............................................................................................... Federal New Source Review ................................................................................ Lhorne on DSK30JT082PROD with RULES We proposed a full approval of Rules 400 and 401 as part of BCAQMD’s general NSR permitting program because we determined that these rules meet the relevant CAA requirements. We proposed a limited approval of Rule 432 because we determined that the rule improves the SIP and is largely consistent with the relevant CAA requirements. We simultaneously proposed a limited disapproval of Rule 432 because we determined that the rule does not fully satisfy CAA section 189(e) requirements for regulation of PM2.5 precursors. The rule does not specify ammonia as a PM2.5 precursor and the demonstration provided by Butte County as part of its NSR program submittal is not adequate to allow the Administrator to determine whether potential new major sources and major modifications of ammonia emissions will or will not contribute significantly to PM2.5 levels that exceed the standard in the area. We also proposed to remove ten existing rules from the SIP, as the submitted rules replaced the content of these pre-existing rules in the SIP. The EPA also proposed to find that it is acceptable for BCAQMD to not incorporate the NSR Reform provisions of 40 CFR 51.165 into its NSR permit program because BCAQMD’s permitting program will not be any less stringent than the federal permitting program. In addition, the EPA proposed to find that Rules 400, 401 and 432 meet the statutory requirements for SIP revisions as specified in sections 110(l) and 193 of the CAA. II. EPA Action No comments were submitted. Therefore, as authorized in sections 110(k)(3) and 301(a) of the Act, the EPA is finalizing approval of Rule 400 and Rule 401, and finalizing a limited approval and limited disapproval of Rule 432 into the BCAQMD portion of the California SIP. This action will incorporate the submitted rules into the SIP, including those provisions identified as deficient. The approval of Rule 432 is limited because the EPA is simultaneously finalizing a limited VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:15 Dec 21, 2016 Jkt 241001 Adopted disapproval of Rule 432 under section 110(k)(3). This limited disapproval will trigger sanctions under CAA section 179 and 40 CFR 52.31 unless the EPA approves subsequent SIP revisions that correct the rule deficiencies within 18 months of the effective date of the final action. Note that Rule 432 has been adopted by the BCAQMD, and the EPA’s final limited disapproval will not prevent the local agency from enforcing it. The limited disapproval also will not prevent any portion of the rule from being incorporated by reference into the federally enforceable SIP as discussed in a July 9, 1992 EPA memo found at: http://www.epa.gov/nsr/ttnnsr01/gen/ pdf/memo-s.pdf. In addition, because we are finalizing our proposed action, we are removing existing Rules 4–4, 401, 402, 403, 405, 406, 407, 420, 421 and 424 from the Butte County portion of the California SIP. 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, the EPA is finalizing the incorporation by reference of the BCAQMD rules described in the amendments to 40 CFR part 52 set forth below. The EPA has made, and will continue to make, these documents generally available electronically through www.regulations.gov and in hard copy at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region IX (Air–3), 75 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA 94105–3901.

Executive Order 12866: Regulatory Planning and Review and Executive Order 13563: Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review This action is not a significant regulatory action and was therefore not submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review. B.

C. Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) I certify that this action will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the RFA. This action will not impose any requirements on small entities beyond those imposed by state law. D. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) This action does not contain any unfunded mandate as described in UMRA, 2 U.S.C. 1531–1538, and does not significantly or uniquely affect small governments. This action does not impose additional requirements beyond those imposed by state law. Accordingly, no additional costs to State, local, or tribal governments, or to the private sector, will result from this action. E. Executive Order 13132: Federalism This action does not have federalism implications. It will not have substantial direct effects on the states, on the relationship between the national government and the states, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. F. Executive Order 13175: Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments This action does not have tribal implications, as specified in Executive Order 13175, because the SIP is not approved to apply on any Indian E:\FR\FM\22DER1.SGM 22DER1 93822 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 246 / Thursday, December 22, 2016 / Rules and Regulations reservation land or in any other area where the EPA or an Indian tribe has demonstrated that a tribe has jurisdiction, and will not impose substantial direct costs on tribal governments or preempt tribal law. Thus, Executive Order 13175 does not apply to this action. G. Executive Order 13045: Protection of Children From Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks The EPA interprets Executive Order 13045 as applying only to those regulatory actions that concern environmental health or safety risks that the EPA has reason to believe may disproportionately affect children, per the definition of ‘‘covered regulatory action’’ in section 2–202 of the Executive Order. This action is not subject to Executive Order 13045 because it does not impose additional requirements beyond those imposed by state law. H.

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is finalizing action 
on three permitting rules submitted as a revision to the Butte County 
Air Quality Management District (BCAQMD) portion of the California 
State Implementation Plan (SIP). We are finalizing a limited approval 
and limited disapproval of one rule; we are finalizing approval of two 
permitting rules; and we are deleting ten rules from the SIP. These 
revisions concern the District's New Source Review (NSR) permitting 
program for new and modified sources of air pollution. This limited 
disapproval will trigger sanctions under CAA section 179 and 40 CFR 
52.31 unless the EPA approves subsequent SIP revisions that correct the 
rule deficiencies within 18 months of the effective date of the final 
action.

DATES: This rule will be effective on January 23, 2017.

ADDRESSES: The EPA has established a docket for this action under 
Docket No. EPA-R09-OAR-2016-0322. All documents in the docket are

I. Proposed Action

    On August 19, 2016 (81 FR 55402), the EPA proposed a limited 
approval and limited disapproval (LA/LD) or a full approval (as noted 
in the table) of the following rules that were submitted for 
incorporation into the Butte County portion of the California SIP.

                                          Table 1--Submitted NSR Rules

400...................  Permit Requirements......        04/24/14        11/06/14  Full Approval.
401...................  Permit Exemptions........        04/24/14        11/06/14  Full Approval.
432...................  Federal New Source Review        04/24/14        11/06/14  LA/LD.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We proposed a full approval of Rules 400 and 401 as part of 
BCAQMD's general NSR permitting program because we determined that 
these rules meet the relevant CAA requirements. We proposed a limited 
approval of Rule 432 because we determined that the rule improves the 
SIP and is largely consistent with the relevant CAA requirements. We 
simultaneously proposed a limited disapproval of Rule 432 because we 
determined that the rule does not fully satisfy CAA section 189(e) 
requirements for regulation of PM2.5 precursors. The rule 
does not specify ammonia as a PM2.5 precursor and the 
demonstration provided by Butte County as part of its NSR program 
submittal is not adequate to allow the Administrator to determine 
whether potential new major sources and major modifications of ammonia 
emissions will or will not contribute significantly to PM2.5 
levels that exceed the standard in the area. We also proposed to remove 
ten existing rules from the SIP, as the submitted rules replaced the 
content of these pre-existing rules in the SIP.
    The EPA also proposed to find that it is acceptable for BCAQMD to 
not incorporate the NSR Reform provisions of 40 CFR 51.165 into its NSR 
permit program because BCAQMD's permitting program will not be any less 
stringent than the federal permitting program. In addition, the EPA 
proposed to find that Rules 400, 401 and 432 meet the statutory 
requirements for SIP revisions as specified in sections 110(l) and 193 
of the CAA.

II. EPA Action

    No comments were submitted. Therefore, as authorized in sections 
110(k)(3) and 301(a) of the Act, the EPA is finalizing approval of Rule 
400 and Rule 401, and finalizing a limited approval and limited 
disapproval of Rule 432 into the BCAQMD portion of the California SIP. 
This action will incorporate the submitted rules into the SIP, 
including those provisions identified as deficient. The approval of 
Rule 432 is limited because the EPA is simultaneously finalizing a 
limited disapproval of Rule 432 under section 110(k)(3). This limited 
disapproval will trigger sanctions under CAA section 179 and 40 CFR 
52.31 unless the EPA approves subsequent SIP revisions that correct the 
rule deficiencies within 18 months of the effective date of the final 
action.
    Note that Rule 432 has been adopted by the BCAQMD, and the EPA's 
final limited disapproval will not prevent the local agency from 
enforcing it. The limited disapproval also will not prevent any portion 
of the rule from being incorporated by reference into the federally 
enforceable SIP as discussed in a July 9, 1992 EPA memo found at: 
http://www.epa.gov/nsr/ttnnsr01/gen/pdf/memo-s.pdf.
    In addition, because we are finalizing our proposed action, we are 
removing existing Rules 4-4, 401, 402, 403, 405, 406, 407, 420, 421 and 
424 from the Butte County portion of the California SIP.

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, the EPA is finalizing the incorporation by reference of the 
BCAQMD rules described in the amendments to 40 CFR part 52 set forth 
below. The EPA has made, and will continue to make, these documents 
generally available electronically through www.regulations.gov and in 
hard copy at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region IX (Air-
3), 75 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA 94105-3901.

IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Additional information about these statutes and Executive Orders 
can be found at http://www2.epa.gov/laws-regulations/laws-and-executive-orders.

A. Executive Order 12866: Regulatory Planning and Review and Executive 
Order 13563: Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review

    This action is not a significant regulatory action and was 
therefore not submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
for review.

B. Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA)

    This action does not impose an information collection burden under 
the PRA because this action does not impose additional requirements 
beyond those imposed by state law.

C. Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA)

    I certify that this action will not have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities under the RFA. This 
action will not impose any requirements on small entities beyond those 
imposed by state law.

D. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA)

    This action does not contain any unfunded mandate as described in 
UMRA, 2 U.S.C. 1531-1538, and does not significantly or uniquely affect 
small governments. This action does not impose additional requirements 
beyond those imposed by state law. Accordingly, no additional costs to 
State, local, or tribal governments, or to the private sector, will 
result from this action.

E. Executive Order 13132: Federalism

    This action does not have federalism implications. It will not have 
substantial direct effects on the states, on the relationship between 
the national government and the states, or on the distribution of power 
and responsibilities among the various levels of government.

F. Executive Order 13175: Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments

    This action does not have tribal implications, as specified in 
Executive Order 13175, because the SIP is not approved to apply on any 
Indian

[[Page 93822]]

reservation land or in any other area where the EPA or an Indian tribe 
has demonstrated that a tribe has jurisdiction, and will not impose 
substantial direct costs on tribal governments or preempt tribal law. 
Thus, Executive Order 13175 does not apply to this action.

G. Executive Order 13045: Protection of Children From Environmental 
Health Risks and Safety Risks

    The EPA interprets Executive Order 13045 as applying only to those 
regulatory actions that concern environmental health or safety risks 
that the EPA has reason to believe may disproportionately affect 
children, per the definition of ``covered regulatory action'' in 
section 2-202 of the Executive Order. This action is not subject to 
Executive Order 13045 because it does not impose additional 
requirements beyond those imposed by state law.

H. Executive Order 13211: Actions That Significantly Affect Energy 
Supply, Distribution, or Use

    This action is not subject to Executive Order 13211, because it is 
not a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866.

I. National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA)

    Section 12(d) of the NTTAA directs the EPA to use voluntary 
consensus standards in its regulatory activities unless to do so would 
be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. The EPA 
believes that this action is not subject to the requirements of section 
12(d) of the NTTAA because application of those requirements would be 
inconsistent with the CAA.

J. Executive Order 12898: Federal Actions To Address Environmental 
Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Population

    The EPA lacks the discretionary authority to address environmental 
justice in this rulemaking.

K. Congressional Review Act (CRA)

    This action is subject to the CRA, and the EPA will submit a rule 
report to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of 
the United States. This action is not a ``major rule'' as defined by 5 
U.S.C. 804(2).

L. Petitions for Judicial Review

    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 February 21, 2017. Filing a 
petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule 
does not affect the finality of this rule 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)).
