SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document whenever ‘‘we,’’ ‘‘us,’’ or ‘‘our’’ is used, we mean EPA. Table of Contents I. Background and Purpose II. Final Action III. Incorporation by Reference IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews I. Background and Purpose On April 10, 2017 (82 FR 17161), EPA published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPR) proposing approval of a SIP revision submitted by the CT DEEP on September 14, 2015. The SIP revision consists of Connecticut’s newly adopted section 22a–174–30a, Stage I Vapor Recovery, of the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies (RCSA) as well as the following revised RCSA sections: • 22a–174–3a, Permit to Construct and Operate Stationary Sources, specifically 22a–174–3a(a); • 22a–174–20, Control of Organic Compound Emissions, specifically 22a– 174–20(a), 22a–174–20(b)(1) through (b)(16), and 22a–174–20(ee); and • 22a–174–32, Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) for Volatile Organic Compounds, specifically 22a– 174–32(b). In addition, this SIP revision also includes Public Act No. 13–120, An Act Concerning Gasoline Vapor Recovery Systems. Connecticut Public Act No. 13–120 revises section 22a–174e of the Connecticut General Statutes (CGS). The regulations and statute require the decommissioning of Stage II vapor recovery systems and strengthen Stage I vapor recovery requirements. The SIP submittal also includes a demonstration that removal of Stage II vapor recovery systems in Connecticut is consistent with the Clean Air Act and EPA guidance. Finally, the SIP revision includes the withdrawal of RCSA section 22a–174–30, Dispensing of Gasoline/Stage I and Stage II Vapor Recovery, from the Connecticut SIP. E:\FR\FM\15DER1.SGM 15DER1 59520 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 240 / Friday, December 15, 2017 / Rules and Regulations Connecticut subsequently modified the September 14, 2015 SIP revision via a letter dated January 20, 2017 wherein Connecticut withdrew RCSA 22a–174– 3a(a) from consideration as part of this SIP revision. A detailed discussion of Connecticut’s September 14, 2015 SIP revision and EPA’s rationale for proposing approval of the SIP revision were provided in the NPR and will not be restated in this notice. No public comments were received on the NPR. II. Final Action EPA is approving Connecticut’s September 14, 2015 SIP revision. Specifically, EPA is approving, and incorporating into the Connecticut SIP, the following regulations and statute: Newly adopted RCSA section 22a–174– 30a; revised RCSA subsection 22a–174– 20(a); revised RCSA subsections 22a– 174–20(b)(6) through (b)(16); revised RCSA subsection 22a–174–20(ee), and revised RCSA subsection 22a–174– 32(b); as well as Connecticut Public Act No. 13–120. EPA is also approving Connecticut’s request to withdraw RCSA section 22a–174–30 from the Connecticut SIP because it has been replaced with RCSA section 22a–174– 30a, which is more stringent. EPA is approving this SIP revision because it meets all applicable requirements of the CAA and EPA guidance, and it will not interfere with any applicable requirement concerning attainment or reasonable further progress towards attainment of any NAAQS, or with any other applicable requirement of the Clean Air Act. nshattuck on DSK9F9SC42PROD with RULES 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 Connecticut regulations 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 through http:// www.regulations.gov. 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, EPA’s role is to approve state choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the Clean Air Act. Accordingly, this action merely VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:15 Dec 14, 2017 Jkt 244001 approves state law as meeting Federal requirements and does not impose additional requirements beyond those imposed by state law. For that reason, this action: • Is not a significant regulatory action subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget under Executive Orders 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993) and 13563 (76 FR 3821, January 21, 2011); • 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 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, the SIP is not approved to apply on any Indian reservation land or in any other area where EPA or an Indian tribe has demonstrated that a tribe has jurisdiction. 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). 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 PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 February 13, 2018. 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).)

I. Background and Purpose

    On April 10, 2017 (82 FR 17161), EPA published a Notice of Proposed 
Rulemaking (NPR) proposing approval of a SIP revision submitted by the 
CT DEEP on September 14, 2015. The SIP revision consists of 
Connecticut's newly adopted section 22a-174-30a, Stage I Vapor 
Recovery, of the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies (RCSA) as 
well as the following revised RCSA sections:
     22a-174-3a, Permit to Construct and Operate Stationary 
Sources, specifically 22a-174-3a(a);
     22a-174-20, Control of Organic Compound Emissions, 
specifically 22a-174-20(a), 22a-174-20(b)(1) through (b)(16), and 22a-
174-20(ee); and
     22a-174-32, Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) 
for Volatile Organic Compounds, specifically 22a-174-32(b).

In addition, this SIP revision also includes Public Act No. 13-120, An 
Act Concerning Gasoline Vapor Recovery Systems. Connecticut Public Act 
No. 13-120 revises section 22a-174e of the Connecticut General Statutes 
(CGS). The regulations and statute require the decommissioning of Stage 
II vapor recovery systems and strengthen Stage I vapor recovery 
requirements. The SIP submittal also includes a demonstration that 
removal of Stage II vapor recovery systems in Connecticut is consistent 
with the Clean Air Act and EPA guidance. Finally, the SIP revision 
includes the withdrawal of RCSA section 22a-174-30, Dispensing of 
Gasoline/Stage I and Stage II Vapor Recovery, from the Connecticut SIP.

[[Page 59520]]

    Connecticut subsequently modified the September 14, 2015 SIP 
revision via a letter dated January 20, 2017 wherein Connecticut 
withdrew RCSA 22a-174-3a(a) from consideration as part of this SIP 
revision.
    A detailed discussion of Connecticut's September 14, 2015 SIP 
revision and EPA's rationale for proposing approval of the SIP revision 
were provided in the NPR and will not be restated in this notice. No 
public comments were received on the NPR.

II. Final Action

    EPA is approving Connecticut's September 14, 2015 SIP revision. 
Specifically, EPA is approving, and incorporating into the Connecticut 
SIP, the following regulations and statute: Newly adopted RCSA section 
22a-174-30a; revised RCSA subsection 22a-174-20(a); revised RCSA 
subsections 22a-174-20(b)(6) through (b)(16); revised RCSA subsection 
22a-174-20(ee), and revised RCSA subsection 22a-174-32(b); as well as 
Connecticut Public Act No. 13-120. EPA is also approving Connecticut's 
request to withdraw RCSA section 22a-174-30 from the Connecticut SIP 
because it has been replaced with RCSA section 22a-174-30a, which is 
more stringent. EPA is approving this SIP revision because it meets all 
applicable requirements of the CAA and EPA guidance, and it will not 
interfere with any applicable requirement concerning attainment or 
reasonable further progress towards attainment of any NAAQS, or with 
any other applicable requirement of the Clean Air Act.

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 
Connecticut regulations 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 through http://www.regulations.gov.

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, EPA's role is to approve state 
choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the Clean Air Act. 
Accordingly, this action merely approves state law as meeting Federal 
requirements and does not impose additional requirements beyond those 
imposed by state law. For that reason, this action:
     Is not a significant regulatory action subject to review 
by the Office of Management and Budget under Executive Orders 12866 (58 
FR 51735, October 4, 1993) and 13563 (76 FR 3821, January 21, 2011);
     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 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, the SIP is not approved to apply on any Indian 
reservation land or in any other area where EPA or an Indian tribe has 
demonstrated that a tribe has jurisdiction. 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).
    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 February 13, 2018. 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).)
