Download as PDF sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 104 / Wednesday, May 30, 2018 / Notices The 2015 Final Rule reorganized the ingredients lists and added specific chemical identifiers to clarify to manufacturers, the public, and Federal, state, and tribal inspectors the specific chemical substances that are permitted in minimum risk pesticide products. EPA also modified the label requirements to require the use of specific label display names of ingredients and to require producer contact information on the label. The primary goal of this rulemaking was to clarify the conditions of exemption for minimum risk pesticides by clarifying the specific ingredients that are permitted in minimum risk pesticide products and to provide company contact information on the label. The previous version of this ICR covered the paperwork burdens associated with existing products updating their labels to comply with the new requirements during the 2015 Final Rule’s compliance period. EPA anticipates that those burdens have been realized, and is now accounting for the potential burden for new products coming into the market. Burden statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 5.5 hours per response. The ICR, a copy of which is available in the docket, provides a detailed explanation of this estimate, which is only briefly summarized here: Respondents/Affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this ICR include individuals or entities engaged in activities related to the manufacturing of minimum risk pesticide products. Distributors, retailers, and users of minimum risk pesticides may also be affected, as many of these companies also manufacture minimum risk pesticide products. Estimated total number of potential respondents: 49. Frequency of response: On occasion. Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 5. Estimated total annual burden hours: 478.5 hours. Estimated total annual costs: $52,202. This includes an estimated burden cost of $52,202 and an estimated cost of $0 for non-burden hour paperwork costs, e.g., investment or maintenance and operational costs. Changes in the estimates from the last approval: The renewal of this ICR will result in an overall decrease of 4,939 hours in the total estimated respondent burden identified in the currently approved ICR. This decrease reflects EPA’s updating of burden estimates for this collection based upon the assumption that products existing prior to the 2015 Final Rule’s compliance VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:04 May 29, 2018 Jkt 244001 date of February 26, 2019, will have met the requirements of the rule update. This ICR now accounts for those products that are considered new to the market after the compliance date. Based on these assumptions, the number of labeling responses per year has decreased from 386 to 87, with a corresponding decrease in the associated burden. This change is an adjustment. V. What is the next step in the process for these ICRs? EPA will consider the comments received and amend the individual ICRs as appropriate. The final ICR packages will then be submitted to OMB for review and approval pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.12. EPA will issue another Federal Register document pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.5(a)(1)(iv) to announce the submission of these ICRs to OMB and the opportunity for the public to submit additional comments for OMB consideration. If you have any questions about any of these ICRs or the approval process in general, please contact the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.

Adequacy Status of the Indiana Portion of the Chicago-Naperville, 
IL-IN-WI Area for the Submitted 2008 Ozone Standard Fifteen Percent 
Rate of Progress Plan for Transportation Conformity Purposes

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice of finding of adequacy.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In this notice, the EPA is notifying the public that we find 
the motor vehicle emissions budgets (MVEBs) for volatile organic 
compounds (VOCs) and oxides of nitrogen (NOX) in the 15% 
Rate of Progress Plan for the Indiana portion of the Chicago-
Naperville, IL-IN-WI 2008 ozone standard nonattainment area (Lake and 
Porter Counties) adequate for use in transportation conformity 
determinations. On February 28, 2017, the Indiana Department of 
Environmental Management (IDEM) submitted a 2008 ozone standard 15% 
Rate of Progress Plan for Lake and Porter Counties, which included the 
MVEBs for 2017. IDEM provided further clarification to the Plan on 
January 9, 2018. As a result of our finding, this area must use these 
MVEBs from the submitted 15% Rate of Progress Plan for future 
transportation conformity determinations.

DATES: This finding is applicable June 14, 2018.

Protection Specialist, Control Strategies Section (AR-18J), Air

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document, whenever ``we'', 
``us'' or ``our'' is used, we mean EPA.

Background

    On February 28, 2017, IDEM submitted to EPA a 15% Rate of Progress 
Plan for the Indiana portion of the 2008 8-hour ozone Chicago-
Naperville, IL-IN-WI nonattainment area, and provided further 
clarification to the Plan on January 9, 2018. This plan included MVEBs 
for VOC and NOX for the year 2017. On March 8, 2018, EPA 
sent a letter to IDEM stating that the MVEBs are adequate for 
transportation conformity purposes. Receipt of these MVEBs was 
announced on EPA's transportation conformity website: https://www.epa.gov/state-and-local-transportation/adequacy-review-state-implementation-plan-sip-submissions-conformity. The finding and other 
relevant information are also available on EPA's transportation 
conformity website.
    The 2017 MVEBs for Lake and Porter Counties are 16.68 tons per day 
(tpd) of NOX and 6.85 tpd of VOCs.
    Transportation conformity is required by section 176(c) of the 
Clean Air Act. EPA's conformity rule requires that transportation 
plans, programs, and projects conform to state air quality 
implementation plans and establishes the criteria and procedures for 
determining whether or not they do conform. Conformity to a State 
Implementation Plan (SIP) means that transportation activities will not 
produce new air quality violations, worsen existing violations, or 
delay

timely attainment of the national ambient air quality standards.
    The criteria by which we determine whether a SIP's MVEBs are 
adequate for transportation conformity purposes are outlined in 40 CFR 
93.118(e)(4). Please note that an adequacy review is separate from 
EPA's completeness review, and is also a separate action from EPA's 
evaluation of and decision whether to approve a proposed SIP revision.
