SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ■ SUMMARY: ‘‘Approval of Nebraska’s Air Quality Implementation Plan, Operating Permits Program, and 112(l) Program; Revision to Nebraska Administrative Code,’’ published in the Federal Register on October 5, 2017. Nebraska’s SIP revision revised two chapters, ‘‘Definitions’’ and ‘‘Operating Permit Modifications; Reopening for Cause’’. Specifically, these revisions incorporated by reference the list of organic compounds exempt from the definition of volatile organic compound (VOC) found in the Code of Federal Regulations. Notification requirements for the operating permit program were amended to be consistent with the Federal operating permit program requirements, and the definition of ‘‘solid waste’’ was revised by the state. However, because the state’s definition is inconsistent with the Federal definition, EPA was not approving the definition into the SIP. Finally, the state extended the process of ‘‘off-permit changes’’ to Class 1 operating permits. Additional grammatical and editorial changes were made in this revision.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: This regulation establishes an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of polyethyleneimine when used as an inert ingredient in a pesticide chemical formulation on growing crops and raw agricultural commodities after harvest. BASF Corporation submitted a petition to EPA under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), requesting establishment of an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance.

Regulations. Notification requirements for the operating permit program 
were amended to be consistent with the Federal operating permit program 
requirements, and the definition of ``solid waste'' was revised by the 
state. However, because the state's definition is inconsistent with the 
Federal definition, EPA was not approving the definition into the SIP. 
Finally, the state extended the process of ``off-permit changes'' to

were made in this revision.
