FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Gregory Lohrke, Air Program, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Region 8, Mail Code 8P–AR, 1595 Wynkoop Street, Denver, Colorado 80202–1129, (303) 312–6396, lohrke.gregory@epa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: INFORMATION CONTACT Sections 111 and 129 of the CAA outline the EPA’s statutory authority for regulating new and existing solid waste incineration units. Section 111(b) directs the EPA Administrator (the ‘‘Administrator’’) to publish and periodically revise a list of source categories which significantly cause or contribute to air pollution. This subsection also directs the Administrator to establish federal standards of performance for new sources within these categories. Section 111(d) grants the EPA statutory authority to require states to submit to the agency implementation plans for establishing performance standards applicable to existing sources belonging to those categories established in section 111(b). Section 129 of the CAA specifically addresses solid waste combustion and requires that the EPA regulate new and existing waste incineration units pursuant to section 111 of the Act, including the requirement that a state in which existing designated facilities operate, submit for approval, a state plan for each category of regulated waste incineration units. Section 129(b)(3) requires the EPA to promulgate a federal plan for existing waste incineration units of any designated category located in any state which has not submitted an approvable 111(d)/129 state plan for said category of waste incineration units. Such federal plans remain in effect until the state in question submits a new or revised state plan and subsequently receives approval and promulgation of the plan under 40 CFR part 62. State plan submittals under CAA sections 111(d) and 129 must be consistent with the relevant new or revised EG. Section 129(a)(1)(D) of the Act requires the EPA to develop and periodically revise operating standards for new and existing CISWI units. The original NSPS and EG for CISWI units were promulgated on December 1, 2000, at 40 CFR part 60, subparts CCCC and DDDD, respectively. Revisions to the CISWI NSPS and EG were subsequently promulgated by the EPA on March 21, PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 17923 2011 (76 FR 15704), with final actions on reconsideration of the rule published on February 7, 2013 (78 FR 9112), and June 23, 2016 (81 FR 40956). State plan requirements specific to CISWI units, along with a model rule to ease adoption of the EG, are found in subpart DDDD, while more general state plan requirements are found in 40 CFR part 60, subpart B, and part 62, subpart A. The guidelines found in subpart DDDD require that states impose emission limits on designated facilities for those pollutants regulated under section 129, including: dioxins/furans, carbon monoxide, metals (cadmium, lead and mercury), hydrogen chloride, sulfur dioxide, oxides of nitrogen, opacity and particulate matter. The EG also requires that state plans include essential elements pursuant to section 129 requirements, including monitoring, operator training and facility permitting requirements. On June 12, 2014, the Department submitted to the EPA a revised section 111(d)/129 state plan for existing CISWI units in the State of North Dakota. The current state plan received final approval and was promulgated on September 17, 2003 (68 FR 54374), at 40 CFR part 62, subpart JJ. Pursuant to each state’s obligations following the revision of the CISWI rule, the State of North Dakota has revised their state rulemaking, and has submitted a revised state plan document as well as a demonstration of legal and enforcement authority to comply with CAA section 111/129 requirements. II. Summary of North Dakota’s Revised Section 111(d)/129 Plan for Existing CISWI Units The EPA has completed a review of the revised North Dakota section 111(d)/ 129 state plan for existing CISWI units. The EPA has determined that the plan submittal meets the requirements found in 40 CFR part 60, subparts B and DDDD, and those of part 62, subpart A of that title. Accordingly, the EPA is approving the submitted revised plan as proposed. See 83 FR 3656 (January 26, 2018). The EPA’s final approval action is limited to the revised North Dakota CISWI state plan document, submitted to the EPA on June 12, 2014, and the subpart DDDD ‘‘Model Rule’’ as it was incorporated by the State in the North Dakota Administrative Code (NDAC) at Chapter 33–15–12–02, subpart DDDD. A detailed summary of the submittal’s compliance with the EG and other federal regulatory requirements is available in the technical support document (TSD) associated with this rulemaking action. The TSD is available in the docket for this rulemaking action E:\FR\FM\25APR1.SGM 25APR1 17924 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 80 / Wednesday, April 25, 2018 / Rules and Regulations and may be found at the http:// www.regulations.gov website. III. Response to Public Comments This rule will be finalized as proposed without revisions. The EPA received five anonymous public comments on the proposed approval of the revised North Dakota CISWI state plan. After reviewing the comments, the EPA has determined that the comments are outside the scope of our proposed action or fail to identify any material issue necessitating a response. All public comments received on this rulemaking action are available for review by the public and may be viewed by following the instructions for access to docket materials as outlined in the ADDRESSES section of the preamble. IV. Final Action The EPA is approving North Dakota’s amended section 111(d)/129 state plan for existing CISWI units. The North Dakota state plan requirements being approved today are at least as stringent as the requirements for existing CISWI units found in 40 CFR part 60, subpart DDDD. Therefore, the EPA is amending 40 CFR part 62, subpart JJ to reflect the approved revisions to North Dakota’s previously approved, current CISWI state plan. The EPA is limiting the scope of the plan approval to the provisions of 40 CFR parts 60 and 62 for existing CISWI units, as found in the EG at 40 CFR part 60, subpart DDDD. The Administrator retains the authorities as listed under 40 CFR 60.2542 and 60.2030(c). sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with RULES V. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Under the CAA, the Administrator is required to approve a section 111(d)/129 plan submission that complies with the provisions of the Act and applicable federal regulations. Thus, in reviewing section 111(d)/129 plan submissions, the EPA’s role is to approve state choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the CAA and are not specifically disapproved. Accordingly, this action merely finalizes approval of 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); • Is not expected to be an Executive Order 13771 regulatory action because VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:26 Apr 24, 2018 Jkt 244001 this action is not significant under Executive Order 12866; • 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 CAA; and, • Is not subject to Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994) because it does not establish an environmental health or safety standard. In addition, this final rule is not approved to apply on any Indian reservation land or in any other area where the 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. The 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 PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 ‘‘major rule’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2). Under section 307(b)(1) of the CAA, petitions for judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by June 25, 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 CAA section 307(b)(2).)

revised state plan (the ``plan'') submitted by the North Dakota 
Department of Health (the ``Department'') for the regulation of 
existing commercial and industrial solid waste incineration (CISWI) 
units within the jurisdiction of the State of North Dakota. The 
Department submitted the plan to the EPA for approval following the 
promulgation of federal new source performance standards (NSPS) and 
emission guidelines (EG) for CISWI units on March 21, 2011, and the 
subsequent, limited revisions to that final rule published on February 
7, 2013, and June 23, 2016. This plan approval final rulemaking action

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background Information

    Sections 111 and 129 of the CAA outline the EPA's statutory 
authority for regulating new and existing solid waste incineration 
units. Section 111(b) directs the EPA Administrator (the 
``Administrator'') to publish and periodically revise a list of source 
categories which significantly cause or contribute to air pollution. 
This subsection also directs the Administrator to establish federal 
standards of performance for new sources within these categories. 
Section 111(d) grants the EPA statutory authority to require states to 
submit to the agency implementation plans for establishing performance 
standards applicable to existing sources belonging to those categories 
established in section 111(b). Section 129 of the CAA specifically 
addresses solid waste combustion and requires that the EPA regulate new 
and existing waste incineration units pursuant to section 111 of the 
Act, including the requirement that a state in which existing 
designated facilities operate, submit for approval, a state plan for 
each category of regulated waste incineration units. Section 129(b)(3) 
requires the EPA to promulgate a federal plan for existing waste 
incineration units of any designated category located in any state 
which has not submitted an approvable 111(d)/129 state plan for said 
category of waste incineration units. Such federal plans remain in 
effect until the state in question submits a new or revised state plan 
and subsequently receives approval and promulgation of the plan under 
40 CFR part 62.
    State plan submittals under CAA sections 111(d) and 129 must be 
consistent with the relevant new or revised EG. Section 129(a)(1)(D) of 
the Act requires the EPA to develop and periodically revise operating 
standards for new and existing CISWI units. The original NSPS and EG 
for CISWI units were promulgated on December 1, 2000, at 40 CFR part 
60, subparts CCCC and DDDD, respectively. Revisions to the CISWI NSPS 
and EG were subsequently promulgated by the EPA on March 21, 2011 (76 
FR 15704), with final actions on reconsideration of the rule published 
on February 7, 2013 (78 FR 9112), and June 23, 2016 (81 FR 40956). 
State plan requirements specific to CISWI units, along with a model 
rule to ease adoption of the EG, are found in subpart DDDD, while more 
general state plan requirements are found in 40 CFR part 60, subpart B, 
and part 62, subpart A. The guidelines found in subpart DDDD require 
that states impose emission limits on designated facilities for those 
pollutants regulated under section 129, including: dioxins/furans, 
carbon monoxide, metals (cadmium, lead and mercury), hydrogen chloride, 
sulfur dioxide, oxides of nitrogen, opacity and particulate matter. The 
EG also requires that state plans include essential elements pursuant 
to section 129 requirements, including monitoring, operator training 
and facility permitting requirements.
    On June 12, 2014, the Department submitted to the EPA a revised 
section 111(d)/129 state plan for existing CISWI units in the State of 
North Dakota. The current state plan received final approval and was 
promulgated on September 17, 2003 (68 FR 54374), at 40 CFR part 62, 
subpart JJ. Pursuant to each state's obligations following the revision 
of the CISWI rule, the State of North Dakota has revised their state 
rulemaking, and has submitted a revised state plan document as well as 
a demonstration of legal and enforcement authority to comply with CAA 
section 111/129 requirements.

II. Summary of North Dakota's Revised Section 111(d)/129 Plan for 
Existing CISWI Units

    The EPA has completed a review of the revised North Dakota section 
111(d)/129 state plan for existing CISWI units. The EPA has determined 
that the plan submittal meets the requirements found in 40 CFR part 60, 
subparts B and DDDD, and those of part 62, subpart A of that title. 
Accordingly, the EPA is approving the submitted revised plan as 
proposed. See 83 FR 3656 (January 26, 2018). The EPA's final approval 
action is limited to the revised North Dakota CISWI state plan 
document, submitted to the EPA on June 12, 2014, and the subpart DDDD 
``Model Rule'' as it was incorporated by the State in the North Dakota 
Administrative Code (NDAC) at Chapter 33-15-12-02, subpart DDDD. A 
detailed summary of the submittal's compliance with the EG and other 
federal regulatory requirements is available in the technical support 
document (TSD) associated with this rulemaking action. The TSD is 
available in the docket for this rulemaking action

[[Page 17924]]

and may be found at the http://www.regulations.gov website.

III. Response to Public Comments

    This rule will be finalized as proposed without revisions. The EPA 
received five anonymous public comments on the proposed approval of the 
revised North Dakota CISWI state plan. After reviewing the comments, 
the EPA has determined that the comments are outside the scope of our 
proposed action or fail to identify any material issue necessitating a 
response. All public comments received on this rulemaking action are 
available for review by the public and may be viewed by following the 
instructions for access to docket materials as outlined in the 
ADDRESSES section of the preamble.

IV. Final Action

    The EPA is approving North Dakota's amended section 111(d)/129 
state plan for existing CISWI units. The North Dakota state plan 
requirements being approved today are at least as stringent as the 
requirements for existing CISWI units found in 40 CFR part 60, subpart 
DDDD. Therefore, the EPA is amending 40 CFR part 62, subpart JJ to 
reflect the approved revisions to North Dakota's previously approved, 
current CISWI state plan. The EPA is limiting the scope of the plan 
approval to the provisions of 40 CFR parts 60 and 62 for existing CISWI 
units, as found in the EG at 40 CFR part 60, subpart DDDD. The 
Administrator retains the authorities as listed under 40 CFR 60.2542 
and 60.2030(c).

V. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under the CAA, the Administrator is required to approve a section 
111(d)/129 plan submission that complies with the provisions of the Act 
and applicable federal regulations. Thus, in reviewing section 111(d)/
129 plan submissions, the EPA's role is to approve state choices, 
provided that they meet the criteria of the CAA and are not 
specifically disapproved. Accordingly, this action merely finalizes 
approval of 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);
     Is not expected to be an Executive Order 13771 regulatory 
action because this action is not significant under Executive Order 
12866;
     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 CAA; and,
     Is not subject to Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, 
February 16, 1994) because it does not establish an environmental 
health or safety standard.
    In addition, this final rule is not approved to apply on any Indian 
reservation land or in any other area where the 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. The 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 CAA, petitions for judicial review 
of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for 
the appropriate circuit by June 25, 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 CAA section 307(b)(2).)
