Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 53 / Monday, March 19, 2018 / Rules and Regulations about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. C. Collection of Information This rule will not call for a new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520). D. Federalism and Indian Tribal Governments A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect 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. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism 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. If you believe this rule has implications for federalism or Indian tribes, please contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section above. nshattuck on DSK9F9SC42PROD with RULES 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. F. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Directive 023–01, which guides the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have determined that this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule involves the establishment of a special local VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:37 Mar 16, 2018 Jkt 244001 regulation lasting eleven hours on three days extending a distance of less than three miles that will prohibit entry on all navigable waters of the Clinch River from MM 49.5 to MM 52.0. It is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph L63(a) of Appendix A, Table 1 of DHS Instruction Manual 023–01–001–01, Rev. 01. A Record of Environmental Consideration supporting this determination is available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES. G. Protest Activities The Coast Guard respects the First Amendment rights of protesters. Protesters are asked to contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section to coordinate protest activities so that your message can be received without jeopardizing the safety or security of people, places or vessels.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:37 Mar 16, 2018 Jkt 244001 The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is approving several different revisions to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) submitted to the EPA by the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation (VT DEC). On May 23, 2017, Vermont submitted revisions to the EPA satisfying the VT DEC’s earlier commitment to adopt and submit revisions that meet certain requirements of the Federal Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) air permit program. Vermont’s submission also included revisions relating to the federal nonattainment new source review (NNSR) permit program. This action approves those revisions and also fully approves certain elements of Vermont’s infrastructure SIPs (ISIPs), which were conditionally approved by the EPA on June 27, 2017. Additionally, the EPA is approving several other minor regulatory changes to the SIP submitted by VT DEC on May 23, 2017. This action is being taken in accordance with the Clean Air Act.

Background and Purpose II. Final Action III. Incorporation by Reference IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews I. Background and Purpose On December 18, 2017, the EPA published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for the State of Vermont. See 82 FR 59997. The NPRM proposed approval of several different revisions to the SIP submitted by the VT DEC. The formal SIP revision was submitted by Vermont on May 23, 2017. As discussed in the NPRM, the VT DEC revised the Vermont Air Pollution Control Regulations (APCR) on December 15, 2016 to address the two provisions identified in the EPA’s June 27, 2017 conditional approval, which are required under the Federal PSD permit program regulations and were not included in the State’s ISIPs submittal. See 82 FR 29005, June 27, 2017. Specifically, the definition of ‘‘significant’’ in APCR § 5–101(80) was revised to define the significant emissions rate increase for ozone as 40 tons or greater of either VOCs or NOX as ozone precursors. In addition, the VT DEC revised APCR sections 5–502(4)(c) and 5–502(5)(a) and (b) to require that PSD increment reviews and the determination of remaining PSD increment be conducted or determined in accordance with the applicable regulations at 40 CFR 51.166. The EPA’s NPRM also proposed approval into the Vermont SIP of the requirements in Vermont’s NNSR and PSD permit program at APCR sections 5–501(9) and 5–502(9). The provision at section 5–501(9) clarifies that no action under section 5–501 relieves any person from complying with any other requirements of local, State, or Federal law. APCR section 5–502(9) requires an alternative site analysis to be conducted when: (1) A source or modification that is major is proposed to be constructed in a non-attainment area; or (2) a source or modification is major for ozone and/ or precursors to ozone. Additionally, the NPRM proposed to incorporate into the SIP revisions to the regulations relating to particulate matter at APCR sections 5–231(4) and (5). APCR section 5–231(4) was revised to prohibit a process operation to operate without taking reasonable precautions to prevent particulate matter from becoming airborne. APCR section 5– 231(5) was revised to update and replace the term ‘‘Asphalt Concrete E:\FR\FM\19MRR1.SGM 19MRR1
