SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background In early June of this year, the EPA proposed to grant two one-year extensions to the Moderate attainment date for the 2006 24-hour PM2.5 Logan, UT-ID nonattainment area. See 82 FR 25992 (June 6, 2017); 82 FR 26638 (June 8, 2017). Under CAA section 188(d), the EPA may grant a state’s request to extend the attainment date for a Moderate area if: ‘‘(1) the state has complied with all requirements and commitments pertaining to the area in the applicable implementation plan; and (2) no more than one exceedance of the 24-hour [National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS)] level for PM10 has occurred in the area in the year preceding the Extension Year, and the annual mean concentration for PM10 in the area for such year is less than or equal to the standard level.’’ The statute provides the EPA with authority to issue only two one-year extensions for a single Moderate area. On August 24, 2016, the EPA finalized the Fine Particulate Matter National Ambient Air Quality Standards: State Implementation Plan Requirements (‘‘PM2.5 Implementation Rule’’), 81 FR 58010, and that rule includes requirements applicable to Moderate area extension requests under CAA section 188(d). Under the regulations, the EPA may grant an E:\FR\FM\08SER1.SGM 08SER1
