Incorporation by Reference V. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews I. Proposed Action On June 14, 2018 (83 FR 27738), the EPA proposed to fully approve the following rule that was submitted for incorporation into the PCAPCD portion of the California SIP. daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES TABLE 1—SUBMITTED RULE Adopted or amended Rule No. Rule title 518 ............................. Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) Permit Program ...................................... We proposed approval of this rule because we determined that the rule met the statutory requirements for SIP revisions as specified in section 110(l) of the CAA, as well as the substantive statutory and regulatory requirements for a PSD permit program as contained VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:59 Aug 27, 2018 Jkt 244001 in CAA section 110(a)(2)(C) and 40 CFR 51.166. II. Public Comments and EPA Responses The EPA’s proposed action provided a 30-day public comment period. During this period, we received two comments on the proposed rule. These comments PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 10/13/16 Submitted 1/24/17 raised issues that are outside the scope of our proposed approval of Rule 518, including air pollution monitoring in China and India, climate change, and wind and solar power costs and regulations. None of those comments are germane to our evaluation of Rule 518. The EPA is required to approve a state SIP submission if the submittal meets E:\FR\FM\28AUR1.SGM 28AUR1 43766 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 167 / Tuesday, August 28, 2018 / Rules and Regulations all of the applicable requirements of the Act. 42 U.S.C. 7410(k)(3). None of the submitted comments indicate that the District’s submittal of Rule 518 does not meet the requirements of the Act. III. EPA Action No comments were submitted that change our assessment that submitted Rule 518 satisfies the applicable CAA requirements. Therefore, under CAA sections 110(k)(3) and 301(a), and for the reasons set forth in our June 14, 2018 proposed rule, we are fully approving Rule 518. This action incorporates the submitted rule into the PCAPCD portion of the California SIP and makes it federally enforceable. In addition, because we are finalizing our proposed action, we are removing the existing Rule 518 from the PCAPCD portion of the California SIP. daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES IV. 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 PCAPCD rule listed in Table 1 of this document. The EPA has made, and will continue to make, these documents available through www.regulations.gov and at the EPA Region IX Office (please contact the person identified in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section of this preamble for more information). V. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Under the CAA, 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, the EPA’s role is to approve state choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the CAA. 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); • Is not an Executive Order 13771 (82 FR 9339, February 2, 2017) regulatory action because SIP approvals are exempted 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.); VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:59 Aug 27, 2018 Jkt 244001 • 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 the 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 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).

I. Proposed Action

    On June 14, 2018 (83 FR 27738), the EPA proposed to fully approve 
the following rule that was submitted for incorporation into the PCAPCD 
portion of the California SIP.

                                             Table 1--Submitted Rule
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                                    Adopted or
             Rule No.                                Rule title                       amended        Submitted
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
518..............................  Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD)        10/13/16         1/24/17
                                    Permit Program.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We proposed approval of this rule because we determined that the 
rule met the statutory requirements for SIP revisions as specified in 
section 110(l) of the CAA, as well as the substantive statutory and 
regulatory requirements for a PSD permit program as contained in CAA 
section 110(a)(2)(C) and 40 CFR 51.166.

II. Public Comments and EPA Responses

    The EPA's proposed action provided a 30-day public comment period. 
During this period, we received two comments on the proposed rule. 
These comments raised issues that are outside the scope of our proposed 
approval of Rule 518, including air pollution monitoring in China and 
India, climate change, and wind and solar power costs and regulations. 
None of those comments are germane to our evaluation of Rule 518.
    The EPA is required to approve a state SIP submission if the 
submittal meets

[[Page 43766]]

all of the applicable requirements of the Act. 42 U.S.C. 7410(k)(3). 
None of the submitted comments indicate that the District's submittal 
of Rule 518 does not meet the requirements of the Act.

III. EPA Action

    No comments were submitted that change our assessment that 
submitted Rule 518 satisfies the applicable CAA requirements. 
Therefore, under CAA sections 110(k)(3) and 301(a), and for the reasons 
set forth in our June 14, 2018 proposed rule, we are fully approving 
Rule 518. This action incorporates the submitted rule into the PCAPCD 
portion of the California SIP and makes it federally enforceable. In 
addition, because we are finalizing our proposed action, we are 
removing the existing Rule 518 from the PCAPCD portion of the 
California SIP.

IV. 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 
PCAPCD rule listed in Table 1 of this document. The EPA has made, and 
will continue to make, these documents available through 
www.regulations.gov and at the EPA Region IX Office (please contact the 
person identified in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section of 
this preamble for more information).

V. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under the CAA, 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, the EPA's role is to approve state choices, 
provided that they meet the criteria of the CAA. 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);
     Is not an Executive Order 13771 (82 FR 9339, February 2, 
2017) regulatory action because SIP approvals are exempted 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 Clean Air Act; and
     Does not provide the 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 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
