Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 185 / Tuesday, September 26, 2017 / Rules and Regulations principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order 13132. Also, this rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 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. 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. Pmangrum on DSK3GDR082PROD with RULES F. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guides the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have made a determination that this action is one of a category of actions which do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment.

Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Sfmt 4700 Section 110(a)(2)(C) of the Clean Air Act (CAA) requires that each SIP include a program to provide for the regulation of construction and modification of stationary sources, including a permit program as required by part C of subsection I of the CAA— Prevention of Significant Deterioration of Air Quality. On October 4, 2016, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) submitted a request to revise the Minnesota SIP to include Minn. R. 7007.3000, which incorporates the Federal PSD rules at 40 CFR 52.21 by reference as the State’s SIP approved PSD program. Further, by letter dated June 1, 2017, MPCA clarified that it will not implement the provisions at 40 CFR 52.21(g), (s), (t), and (u) because those provisions reference authorities that are retained by the EPA Administrator. EPA proposed to approve Minnesota’s PSD SIP on July 10, 2017. (82 FR 31741, July 10, 2017). EPA received comments on the proposed action from Guardian Energy, LLC, and Granite Falls Energy, LLC. Section II of this document provides a discussion of the comments received and EPA’s response. II. Comments Received and Response to Comments EPA received comments from Guardian Energy, LLC, and Granite Falls Energy, LLC. The letters from the two commenters are identical. The first comment from both commenters expressed support for the proposed action. The second comment from the two commenters is a request for EPA to clarify how changes in the Federal PSD regulations will be addressed in the Minnesota SIP approved regulations. Minn. R. 7007.3000 incorporates 40 CFR 52.21 by reference, as amended. Both MPCA and EPA interpret this to mean that any changes to 40 CFR 52.21 will be automatically incorporated into Minn. R. 7007.3000, and will have the same effective date as the Federal rulemaking. III. What action is EPA taking? EPA is approving the request made by MPCA on October 4, 2016, to revise the Minnesota SIP to include Minn. R. 7007.3000 as the State’s SIP approved PSD program. IV. Incorporation by Reference In this rule, EPA is finalizing regulatory text that includes incorporation by reference. In accordance with requirements of 1 CFR 51.5, EPA is finalizing the incorporation E:\FR\FM\26SER1.SGM 26SER1
