SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. What are the errors being corrected? This rule corrects errors in the regulatory text designating certain areas for the 2015 ozone NAAQS as provided in the designation rules signed by the EPA Administrator on November 6, 2017 (November 16, 2017; 82 FR 54232), and on April 30, 2018 (June 4, 2018; 83 FR 25776). The EPA is correcting the errors consistent with the rulemaking record. The affected areas are located in California, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Montana, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia. The corrections for each state are discussed below and the corrected regulatory text is provided at the end of this action. California The EPA is correcting two errors in the regulatory table for California for designations promulgated in the April 30, 2018, ozone designations rule. The EPA is moving the entry for the ‘‘Butte County, CA’’ nonattainment area so that the area will be listed in alphabetical order and, thus, will be listed before the entry for the ‘‘Calaveras County, CA’’ nonattainment area. The EPA is also correcting a typographical error in the entry for the ‘‘Pechanga Band of Luisen˜o Mission Indians of the Pechanga Reservation’’ nonattainment area by revising ‘‘Pu’eskaMountain’’ to read ‘‘Pu’eska Mountain.’’ Illinois The EPA is correcting the regulatory table for Illinois to include McHenry PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 52157 County and Monroe County as attainment/unclassifiable areas. The EPA is adding those counties to the regulatory table, consistent with the rulemaking record for the April 30, 2018, ozone designations rule. The EPA is also moving the entry for ‘‘Bond County’’ so that it will be listed in alphabetical order and, thus, will be listed before the entry for ‘‘Boone County.’’ McHenry County, Illinois, is part of the Chicago-Naperville, Illinois-IndianaWisconsin (IL-IN-WI), Combined Statistical Area (CSA).1 The EPA’s final Technical Support Document (TSD) for the Chicago-Naperville, IL-IN-WI nonattainment area states that, ‘‘EPA’s area of analysis is the ChicagoNaperville, IL-IN-WI CSA, which includes the following 19 counties: Bureau, Cook, DeKalb, DuPage, Grundy, Kane, Kankakee, Kendall, Lake, LaSalle, McHenry, Putnam, and Will in Illinois, Jasper, Lake, LaPorte, Newton, and Porter in Indiana, and Kenosha in Wisconsin. The EPA applied the five factors recommended in its guidance to the area of analysis to determine the nonattainment boundary.’’ In the TSD section, ‘‘Conclusion for the Chicago, ILIN-WI Area,’’ the EPA identified the portions of Illinois that were being designated as part of the nonattainment area and stated, ‘‘All remaining Illinois portions of the Chicago-Naperville, ILIN-WI CSA are designated consistent with the Illinois’ recommendations as attainment/unclassifiable for the 2015 ozone NAAQS: Bureau, DeKalb, Kankakee, LaSalle, McHenry, and Putnam Counties.* * *’’ The EPA’s final TSD for the Chicago-Naperville, ILIN-WI nonattainment area is located in the docket for the April 30, 2018, designations rule (document number EPA-HQ-OAR-2017-0548-0418) and is the key document setting forth the designations for the Chicago-Naperville, IL-IN-WI CSA. Monroe County, Illinois, is part of the St. Louis, Missouri-Illinois (MO-IL) Core Based Statistical Area (CBSA). The EPA’s final TSD for the St. Louis, MOIL nonattainment area states, ‘‘The EPA 1 Lists of Core Based Statistical Areas and Combined Statistical Areas and their geographic components are provided at https:// www.census.gov/programs-surveys/metro-micro/ about/omb-bulletins.html. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) adopts standards for defining statistical areas. The statistical areas are delineated based on United States Census Bureau data. The lists are periodically updated by the OMB. The EPA used the July 2015 update (OMB Bulletin No. 15–01), which is based on application of the 2010 OMB standards to the 2010 Census, 2006–2010 American Community Survey, as well as 2013 Population Estimates Program data. E:\FR\FM\16OCR1.SGM 16OCR1 52158 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 200 / Tuesday, October 16, 2018 / Rules and Regulations believes that using the CBSA 2 is an appropriate starting point for the contribution analysis for the St. Louis area to ensure that the nearby areas most likely to contribute to a violating area are evaluated. The area-specific analyses may support nonattainment boundaries that are smaller or larger than the CBSA. The St. Louis CBSA includes the counties of Franklin, Jefferson, Lincoln, St. Charles, and St. Louis, Warren, and the City of St. Louis, in Missouri as well as the counties of Bond, Calhoun, Clinton, Jersey, Macoupin, Madison, Monroe, and St. Clair in Illinois.’’ In the TSD section, ‘‘Conclusion for the St. Louis MO-IL Area,’’ the EPA identified the portions of Illinois that were being designated as part of the nonattainment area and stated, ‘‘The EPA is designating the remaining Franklin County, excluding Boles Township, Jefferson, Lincoln and Warren Counties in Missouri and Bond, Calhoun, Clinton, Jersey, Macoupin and Monroe Counties in Illinois as attainment/unclassifiable for the 2015 ozone NAAQS.’’ The EPA’s final TSD for the St. Louis MO-IL Area nonattainment area is located in the docket for the April 30, 2018, designations rule (document number EPA–HQ–OAR–2017–0548–0416) and is the key document setting forth the designations for the St. Louis CBSA. amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with RULES Indiana The EPA is correcting the regulatory table for Indiana to include Scott County, Union County, and Washington County as attainment/unclassifiable areas. The EPA is adding those counties to the regulatory table, consistent with the rulemaking record for the April 30, 2018, ozone designation rule. Scott County, Indiana, and Washington County, Indiana, are part of the Louisville/Jefferson County— Elizabethtown—Madison, KentuckyIndiana (KY-IN) CSA. The EPA’s final TSD for the Louisville, KY-IN nonattainment area states that, ‘‘The area of analysis for the Louisville, KYIN area included the Louisville/Jefferson County—Elizabethtown—Madison, KYIN CSA. The Louisville/Jefferson County—Elizabethtown—Madison, KYIN CSA is comprised of the following counties: Bullitt County (KY); Hardin 2 Lists of CBSAs and CSAs and their geographic components are provided at https:// www.census.gov/population/www/metroareas/ metrodef.html. The OMB adopts standards for defining statistical areas. The statistical areas are delineated based on U.S. Census Bureau data. The lists are periodically updated by the OMB. The EPA used the most recent July 2015 update (OMB Bulletin No. 15–01), which is based on application of the 2010 OMB standards to the 2010 Census, 2006–2010 American Community Survey, as well as 2013 Population Estimates Program data.

The EPA applied the five factors recommended in its guidance to the area of analysis to determine the nonattainment area boundary.’’ In the TSD section, ‘‘Conclusion for Louisville, KY-IN Area,’’ the EPA identified the portions of Indiana that were being designated as part of the nonattainment area and stated, ‘‘The EPA is not including the remaining analyzed counties within the nonattainment boundary of the Louisville, KY-IN nonattainment area.’’ The EPA’s final TSD for the Louisville, KY-IN nonattainment area is located in the docket for the April 30, 2018, designations rule (document number EPA–HQ–OAR–2017–0548–0396) and is the key document setting forth the designations for the Indiana counties in the Louisville/Jefferson County— Elizabethtown—Madison, KY-IN CSA. Union County, Indiana is part of the Cincinnati-Wilmington-Maysville, OhioKentucky-Indiana (OH-KY-IN) CSA. The EPA’s final TSD for Cincinnati, OH-KYIN area states that, ‘‘For the Cincinnati area, the starting point for the analysis (the area of analysis), is the CincinnatiWilmington-Maysville, OH-KY-IN CSA. . . . The Cincinnati-WilmingtonMaysville, OH-KY-IN CSA includes the following counties: Dearborn County (IN), Ohio County (IN), Union County (IN), Boone County (KY), Bracken County (KY), Campbell County (KY), Gallatin County (KY), Grant County (KY), Kenton County (KY), Mason County (KY), Pendleton County (KY), Brown County (OH), Butler County (OH), Clermont County (OH), Clinton County (OH), Hamilton County (OH), and Warren County (OH). The EPA applied the five factors recommended in its guidance to the area of analysis to determine the nonattainment boundary.’’ In the TSD section, ‘‘Conclusion for the Cincinnati Area,’’ the EPA stated, ‘‘The EPA is not modifying the states’ recommendations for nonattainment boundaries. Based on the assessment of factors described previously, the EPA has concluded that the following counties or portions of counties meet the CAA criteria for inclusion in the Cincinnati nonattainment area: Butler, Clermont, Hamilton and Warren in Ohio and the parts of Boone, Campbell and Kenton PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Counties in Kentucky identified in Kentucky’s recommendation.’’ No Indiana counties were included in the Cincinnati nonattainment area. The EPA’s final TSD for the Cincinnati, OHKY-IN nonattainment area is located in the docket for the April 30, 2018, designations rule (document number EPA–HQ–OAR–2017–0548–0397) and is the key document setting forth the designations for the Indiana counties in the Cincinnati-Wilmington-Maysville, OH-KY-IN CSA. In a letter from the EPA Administrator to the governor of Indiana, sent at the same time the April 30, 2018, rule was signed, the EPA identified the counties the EPA was designating as nonattainment as part of the Chicago, IL-IN-WI and Louisville, KY-IN nonattainment areas and stated that the remaining portions of Indiana, which includes Scott County, Union County and Washington County, were being designated as attainment/unclassifiable. Kentucky The EPA is correcting two errors in the regulatory table for Kentucky designations promulgated in the April 30, 2018, ozone designations rule. The EPA is moving the entry for ‘‘Mason County’’ so that it will be listed in alphabetical order and, thus, will be listed before the entry for ‘‘Meade County.’’ The EPA is also correcting a typographical error by revising ‘‘Larue County’’ to read ‘‘LaRue County.’’ Michigan The EPA is correcting three errors in the regulatory table for Michigan for designations promulgated in the April 30, 2018, ozone designations rule. In the regulatory table for Michigan, the EPA is correcting a typographical error in the boundary description for the partial Allegan County, Michigan, nonattainment area by revising ‘‘Manlus Township’’ to read ‘‘Manlius Township.’’ The EPA is moving the entry for ‘‘Alger County’’ so that it will be listed in alphabetical order and, thus, will be listed before the entry for ‘‘Allegan County (part) remainder.’’ The EPA is moving the entry for ‘‘Sanilac County’’ so that it will be listed in alphabetical order and, thus, will be listed before the entry for ‘‘Schoolcraft County.’’ Montana In the November 6, 2017, designations rule, the EPA regulatory table identified all the counties in Montana as a single statewide attainment/unclassifiable area. The state of Montana subsequently notified the EPA that on September 21, 2016, it had recommended the E:\FR\FM\16OCR1.SGM 16OCR1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 200 / Tuesday, October 16, 2018 / Rules and Regulations designations to be on a county-bycounty basis rather than as a statewide area. In the preamble for the November 6, 2017, designations rule, the EPA stated, ‘‘The EPA is promulgating these designations for 2,649 counties including Indian Country located in those counties, two separate areas of Indian Country, and five territories without notice-and-comment, because we believe that the designations pursuant to this final action are noncontroversial and the designations are consistent with the recommendations of the states and tribes in which these counties and tribal lands are located.’’ The EPA is correcting the regulatory table for Montana to list each county separately with a designation of attainment/ unclassifiable, consistent with Montana’s September 21, 2016, recommendation. amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with RULES Ohio The EPA is correcting the regulatory table for Ohio to include Carroll County as an attainment/unclassifiable area. The EPA is adding the county to the regulatory table, consistent with the rulemaking record for the April 30, 2018, ozone designation rule. Carroll County, Ohio, is part of the Cleveland-Akron-Canton, Ohio CSA. The EPA’s final TSD for Ohio states that, ‘‘For the Cleveland area, the starting point for the area of analysis is the Cleveland-Akron-Canton, Ohio CSA which includes the following counties: Erie, Huron, Lorain, Medina, Summit, Stark, Carroll, Cuyahoga, Lake, Geauga, Portage, Ashtabula, and Tuscarawas.’’ In the TSD section, ‘‘Conclusion for the Cleveland Area,’’ the EPA stated, ‘‘After evaluating the five factors, the EPA is not modifying the State’s recommendation and is designating Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage, and Summit Counties as the Cleveland nonattainment area for the 2015 ozone NAAQS.’’ The EPA’s final TSD for Ohio is located in the docket for the April 30, 2018, designations rule (document number EPA–HQ–OAR–2017–0548–0381) and is the key document setting forth the designations for the counties in Ohio. In a letter from the EPA Administrator to the governor of Ohio, sent at the same time the April 30, 2018, rule was signed, the EPA identified the counties the EPA was designating as nonattainment as part of the Cincinnati, OH–KY, Cleveland, Ohio, and Columbus, Ohio nonattainment areas and provided that the remaining portions of Ohio, which includes Carroll County, were being designated as attainment/unclassifiable. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:24 Oct 15, 2018 Jkt 247001 Pennsylvania In the April 30, 2018, designations rule, the EPA did not include Carbon, Lehigh, Monroe, Northampton and Pike Counties in the designation regulatory table for Pennsylvania. The EPA is adding those counties to the table consistent with the rulemaking record. These five counties are part of the New York-Newark, New York-New JerseyConnecticut-Pennsylvania (NY-NJ-CTPA) CSA. The EPA’s final TSD for the New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island, NY-NJ-CT nonattainment area states that the area of analysis is the CSA, with the additional county of Middlesex in Connecticut. The nonattainment area is also referred to as the New York Metro Nonattainment Area. In the final TSD section ‘‘Conclusion for The New York Metro Area,’’ the EPA states, ‘‘The counties of Dutchess, Orange, Putnam and Ulster in New York; Carbon, Lehigh, Monroe, Northampton and Pike in Pennsylvania are being excluded from the New York Metro nonattainment area. . . . .’’ The EPA’s final TSD for New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island, NY-NJ-CT nonattainment area is located in the docket for April 30, 2018, designation rule (document number EPA–HQ–OAR– 0548–0411). In a letter from the EPA Administrator to the governor of Pennsylvania, sent at the same time the April 30, 2018, rule was signed, the EPA summarized the portions of Pennsylvania that the agency was designating. The EPA identified the counties in Pennsylvania that were being designated as nonattainment as part of the Philadelphia-WilmingtonAtlantic City, PA-NJ-MD-DE nonattainment area and provided that the remaining portions of the state, which includes Carbon, Lehigh, Monroe, Northampton and Pike Counties, were being designated as attainment/unclassifiable. Virginia In the April 30, 2018, designation rule, the EPA listed two areas out of order in the designation regulatory table for Virginia. To correct the formatting error, the EPA is moving the entries for the ‘‘Fredericksburg City’’ and ‘‘Winchester City’’ attainment/ unclassifiable areas to list them alphabetically with the other independent cities that are designated as attainment/unclassifiable. Thus, the ‘‘Fredericksburg City’’ attainment/ unclassifiable area will be listed after the entry for ‘‘Franklin City’’ attainment/unclassifiable area and the ‘‘Winchester City’’ attainment/ unclassifiable area will be listed after PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 52159 the entry for ‘‘Williamsburg City’’ attainment/unclassifiable area. II. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews A. Executive Order 12866: Regulatory Planning and Review and Executive Order 13563: Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review This action is exempt from review by the OMB because it responds to the CAA requirement to promulgate air quality designations after promulgation of a new or revised NAAQS. B. Executive Order 13771: Reducing Regulations and Controlling Regulatory Costs This action is not an Executive Order 13771 regulatory action because actions such as air quality designations associated with a new or revised NAAQS are exempt from review under Executive Order 12866. C. Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) This action does not impose an information collection burden under the PRA. In this action, the EPA is correcting errors in the regulatory text regarding the designation of certain areas for the 2015 ozone NAAQS consistent with the rulemaking record. This action does not contain any information collection activities. D. Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) This designation action under Clean Air Act (CAA) section 107(d) is not subject to the RFA. The RFA applies only to rules subject to notice-andcomment rulemaking requirements under the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 553, or any other statute. Section 107(d)(2)(B) of the CAA explicitly provides that designations are exempt from the notice-and-comment provisions of the APA. In addition, designations under CAA section 107(d) are not among the list of actions that are subject to the notice-and-comment rulemaking requirements of CAA section 307(d). E. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) This action does not contain any unfunded mandate as described in UMRA, 2 U.S.C. 1531–1538 and does not significantly or uniquely affect small governments. The action imposes no enforceable duty on any state, local or tribal governments or the private sector. F. Executive Order 13132: Federalism This action does not have federalism implications. It will not have substantial direct effects on the states, on the relationship between the national E:\FR\FM\16OCR1.SGM 16OCR1 52160 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 200 / Tuesday, October 16, 2018 / Rules and Regulations government and the states, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. The division of responsibility between the federal government and the states for purposes of implementing the NAAQS is established under the CAA. G. Executive Order 13175: Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments This action does not have tribal implications as specified in Executive Order 13175. This action corrects errors in the regulatory tables in the ozone designation rules signed by the EPA Administrator on November 6, 2017, and April 30, 2018. The corrections are consistent with the rulemaking record. Thus, Executive Order 13175 does not apply. H. Executive Order 13045: Protection of Children From Environmental Health and Safety Risks The EPA interprets Executive Order 13045 as applying to those regulatory actions that concern environmental health or safety risks that the EPA has reason to believe may disproportionately affect children, per the definition of ‘‘covered regulatory action’’ in section 2–202 of the Executive Order. This action is not subject to Executive Order 13045 because it does not establish an environmental standard intended to mitigate health or safety risks. I. Executive Order 13211: Actions That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution or Use This action is not subject to Executive Order 13211 because it is not a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866. PART 81—DESIGNATIONS OF AREAS FOR AIR QUALITY PLANNING PURPOSES J. National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) This rulemaking does not involve technical standards. 1. The authority citation for part 81 continues to read as follows: ■ K. Executive Order 12898: Federal Actions To Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations This action does not have disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental effects on minority populations, low-income populations and/or indigenous peoples, as specified in Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994). This action corrects errors in the regulatory text regarding the designation of certain areas in for the 2015 ozone NAAQS. The corrections are consistent with the rulemaking record for the designation rules signed by the EPA Administrator on November 6, 2017, and April 30, 2018. L. Congressional Review Act (CRA) This action is subject to the CRA, and the EPA will submit a rule report to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the U.S. This action is not a ‘‘major rule’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. What are the errors being corrected?

    This rule corrects errors in the regulatory text designating 
certain areas for the 2015 ozone NAAQS as provided in the designation 
rules signed by the EPA Administrator on November 6, 2017 (November 16, 
2017; 82 FR 54232), and on April 30, 2018 (June 4, 2018; 83 FR 25776). 
The EPA is correcting the errors consistent with the rulemaking record. 
The affected areas are located in California, Illinois, Indiana, 
Kentucky, Michigan, Montana, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia. The 
corrections for each state are discussed below and the corrected 
regulatory text is provided at the end of this action.

California

    The EPA is correcting two errors in the regulatory table for 
California for designations promulgated in the April 30, 2018, ozone 
designations rule. The EPA is moving the entry for the ``Butte County, 
CA'' nonattainment area so that the area will be listed in alphabetical 
order and, thus, will be listed before the entry for the ``Calaveras 
County, CA'' nonattainment area. The EPA is also correcting a 
typographical error in the entry for the ``Pechanga Band of 
Luise[ntilde]o Mission Indians of the Pechanga Reservation'' 
nonattainment area by revising ``Pu'eskaMountain'' to read ``Pu'eska 
Mountain.''

Illinois

    The EPA is correcting the regulatory table for Illinois to include 
McHenry County and Monroe County as attainment/unclassifiable areas. 
The EPA is adding those counties to the regulatory table, consistent 
with the rulemaking record for the April 30, 2018, ozone designations 
rule. The EPA is also moving the entry for ``Bond County'' so that it 
will be listed in alphabetical order and, thus, will be listed before 
the entry for ``Boone County.''
    McHenry County, Illinois, is part of the Chicago-Naperville, 
Illinois-Indiana-Wisconsin (IL-IN-WI), Combined Statistical Area 
(CSA).\1\ The EPA's final Technical Support Document (TSD) for the 
Chicago-Naperville, IL-IN-WI nonattainment area states that, ``EPA's 
area of analysis is the Chicago-Naperville, IL-IN-WI CSA, which 
includes the following 19 counties: Bureau, Cook, DeKalb, DuPage, 
Grundy, Kane, Kankakee, Kendall, Lake, LaSalle, McHenry, Putnam, and 
Will in Illinois, Jasper, Lake, LaPorte, Newton, and Porter in Indiana, 
and Kenosha in Wisconsin. The EPA applied the five factors recommended 
in its guidance to the area of analysis to determine the nonattainment 
boundary.'' In the TSD section, ``Conclusion for the Chicago, IL-IN-WI 
Area,'' the EPA identified the portions of Illinois that were being 
designated as part of the nonattainment area and stated, ``All 
remaining Illinois portions of the Chicago-Naperville, IL-IN-WI CSA are 
designated consistent with the Illinois' recommendations as attainment/
unclassifiable for the 2015 ozone NAAQS: Bureau, DeKalb, Kankakee, 
LaSalle, McHenry, and Putnam Counties.* * *'' The EPA's final TSD for 
the Chicago-Naperville, IL-IN-WI nonattainment area is located in the 
docket for the April 30, 2018, designations rule (document number EPA-
HQ-OAR-2017-0548-0418) and is the key document setting forth the 
designations for the Chicago-Naperville, IL-IN-WI CSA.

Statistical Areas and their geographic components are provided at 
https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/metro-micro/about/omb-bulletins.html. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) adopts 
standards for defining statistical areas. The statistical areas are 
delineated based on United States Census Bureau data. The lists are 
periodically updated by the OMB. The EPA used the July 2015 update 
(OMB Bulletin No. 15-01), which is based on application of the 2010 
OMB standards to the 2010 Census, 2006-2010 American Community 
Survey, as well as 2013 Population Estimates Program data.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Monroe County, Illinois, is part of the St. Louis, Missouri-
Illinois (MO-IL) Core Based Statistical Area (CBSA). The EPA's final 
TSD for the St. Louis, MO-IL nonattainment area states, ``The EPA

[[Page 52158]]

believes that using the CBSA \2\ is an appropriate starting point for 
the contribution analysis for the St. Louis area to ensure that the 
nearby areas most likely to contribute to a violating area are 
evaluated. The area-specific analyses may support nonattainment 
boundaries that are smaller or larger than the CBSA. The St. Louis CBSA 
includes the counties of Franklin, Jefferson, Lincoln, St. Charles, and 
St. Louis, Warren, and the City of St. Louis, in Missouri as well as 
the counties of Bond, Calhoun, Clinton, Jersey, Macoupin, Madison, 
Monroe, and St. Clair in Illinois.'' In the TSD section, ``Conclusion 
for the St. Louis MO-IL Area,'' the EPA identified the portions of 
Illinois that were being designated as part of the nonattainment area 
and stated, ``The EPA is designating the remaining Franklin County, 
excluding Boles Township, Jefferson, Lincoln and Warren Counties in 
Missouri and Bond, Calhoun, Clinton, Jersey, Macoupin and Monroe 
Counties in Illinois as attainment/unclassifiable for the 2015 ozone 
NAAQS.'' The EPA's final TSD for the St. Louis MO-IL Area nonattainment 
area is located in the docket for the April 30, 2018, designations rule 
(document number EPA-HQ-OAR-2017-0548-0416) and is the key document 
setting forth the designations for the St. Louis CBSA.

areas. The statistical areas are delineated based on U.S. Census 
Bureau data. The lists are periodically updated by the OMB. The EPA 
used the most recent July 2015 update (OMB Bulletin No. 15-01), 
which is based on application of the 2010 OMB standards to the 2010 
Census, 2006-2010 American Community Survey, as well as 2013 
Population Estimates Program data.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Indiana

    The EPA is correcting the regulatory table for Indiana to include 
Scott County, Union County, and Washington County as attainment/
unclassifiable areas. The EPA is adding those counties to the 
regulatory table, consistent with the rulemaking record for the April 
30, 2018, ozone designation rule.
    Scott County, Indiana, and Washington County, Indiana, are part of 
the Louisville/Jefferson County--Elizabethtown--Madison, Kentucky-
Indiana (KY-IN) CSA. The EPA's final TSD for the Louisville, KY-IN 
nonattainment area states that, ``The area of analysis for the 
Louisville, KY-IN area included the Louisville/Jefferson County--
Elizabethtown--Madison, KY-IN CSA. The Louisville/Jefferson County--
Elizabethtown--Madison, KY-IN CSA is comprised of the following 
counties: Bullitt County (KY); Hardin County (KY); Henry County (KY); 
Jefferson County (KY); Larue County (KY); Meade County (KY); Nelson 
County (KY); Oldham County (KY); Shelby County (KY); Spencer County 
(KY); Trimble County (KY); Clark County (IN); Floyd County (IN); 
Harrison County (IN); Jefferson County (IN); Scott County (IN); and 
Washington County (IN). The EPA applied the five factors recommended in 
its guidance to the area of analysis to determine the nonattainment 
area boundary.'' In the TSD section, ``Conclusion for Louisville, KY-IN 
Area,'' the EPA identified the portions of Indiana that were being 
designated as part of the nonattainment area and stated, ``The EPA is 
not including the remaining analyzed counties within the nonattainment 
boundary of the Louisville, KY-IN nonattainment area.'' The EPA's final 
TSD for the Louisville, KY-IN nonattainment area is located in the 
docket for the April 30, 2018, designations rule (document number EPA-
HQ-OAR-2017-0548-0396) and is the key document setting forth the 
designations for the Indiana counties in the Louisville/Jefferson 
County--Elizabethtown--Madison, KY-IN CSA.
    Union County, Indiana is part of the Cincinnati-Wilmington-
Maysville, Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana (OH-KY-IN) CSA. The EPA's final TSD 
for Cincinnati, OH-KY-IN area states that, ``For the Cincinnati area, 
the starting point for the analysis (the area of analysis), is the 
Cincinnati-Wilmington-Maysville, OH-KY-IN CSA. . . . The Cincinnati-
Wilmington-Maysville, OH-KY-IN CSA includes the following counties: 
Dearborn County (IN), Ohio County (IN), Union County (IN), Boone County 
(KY), Bracken County (KY), Campbell County (KY), Gallatin County (KY), 
Grant County (KY), Kenton County (KY), Mason County (KY), Pendleton 
County (KY), Brown County (OH), Butler County (OH), Clermont County 
(OH), Clinton County (OH), Hamilton County (OH), and Warren County 
(OH). The EPA applied the five factors recommended in its guidance to 
the area of analysis to determine the nonattainment boundary.'' In the 
TSD section, ``Conclusion for the Cincinnati Area,'' the EPA stated, 
``The EPA is not modifying the states' recommendations for 
nonattainment boundaries. Based on the assessment of factors described 
previously, the EPA has concluded that the following counties or 
portions of counties meet the CAA criteria for inclusion in the 
Cincinnati nonattainment area: Butler, Clermont, Hamilton and Warren in 
Ohio and the parts of Boone, Campbell and Kenton Counties in Kentucky 
identified in Kentucky's recommendation.'' No Indiana counties were 
included in the Cincinnati nonattainment area. The EPA's final TSD for 
the Cincinnati, OH-KY-IN nonattainment area is located in the docket 
for the April 30, 2018, designations rule (document number EPA-HQ-OAR-
2017-0548-0397) and is the key document setting forth the designations 
for the Indiana counties in the Cincinnati-Wilmington-Maysville, OH-KY-
IN CSA.
    In a letter from the EPA Administrator to the governor of Indiana, 
sent at the same time the April 30, 2018, rule was signed, the EPA 
identified the counties the EPA was designating as nonattainment as 
part of the Chicago, IL-IN-WI and Louisville, KY-IN nonattainment areas 
and stated that the remaining portions of Indiana, which includes Scott 
County, Union County and Washington County, were being designated as 
attainment/unclassifiable.

Kentucky

    The EPA is correcting two errors in the regulatory table for 
Kentucky designations promulgated in the April 30, 2018, ozone 
designations rule. The EPA is moving the entry for ``Mason County'' so 
that it will be listed in alphabetical order and, thus, will be listed 
before the entry for ``Meade County.'' The EPA is also correcting a 
typographical error by revising ``Larue County'' to read ``LaRue 
County.''

Michigan

    The EPA is correcting three errors in the regulatory table for 
Michigan for designations promulgated in the April 30, 2018, ozone 
designations rule. In the regulatory table for Michigan, the EPA is 
correcting a typographical error in the boundary description for the 
partial Allegan County, Michigan, nonattainment area by revising 
``Manlus Township'' to read ``Manlius Township.'' The EPA is moving the 
entry for ``Alger County'' so that it will be listed in alphabetical 
order and, thus, will be listed before the entry for ``Allegan County 
(part) remainder.'' The EPA is moving the entry for ``Sanilac County'' 
so that it will be listed in alphabetical order and, thus, will be 
listed before the entry for ``Schoolcraft County.''

Montana

    In the November 6, 2017, designations rule, the EPA regulatory 
table identified all the counties in Montana as a single statewide 
attainment/unclassifiable area. The state of Montana subsequently 
notified the EPA that on September 21, 2016, it had recommended the

[[Page 52159]]

designations to be on a county-by-county basis rather than as a 
statewide area. In the preamble for the November 6, 2017, designations 
rule, the EPA stated, ``The EPA is promulgating these designations for 
2,649 counties including Indian Country located in those counties, two 
separate areas of Indian Country, and five territories without notice-
and-comment, because we believe that the designations pursuant to this 
final action are noncontroversial and the designations are consistent 
with the recommendations of the states and tribes in which these 
counties and tribal lands are located.'' The EPA is correcting the 
regulatory table for Montana to list each county separately with a 
designation of attainment/unclassifiable, consistent with Montana's 
September 21, 2016, recommendation.

Ohio

    The EPA is correcting the regulatory table for Ohio to include 
Carroll County as an attainment/unclassifiable area. The EPA is adding 
the county to the regulatory table, consistent with the rulemaking 
record for the April 30, 2018, ozone designation rule.
    Carroll County, Ohio, is part of the Cleveland-Akron-Canton, Ohio 
CSA. The EPA's final TSD for Ohio states that, ``For the Cleveland 
area, the starting point for the area of analysis is the Cleveland-
Akron-Canton, Ohio CSA which includes the following counties: Erie, 
Huron, Lorain, Medina, Summit, Stark, Carroll, Cuyahoga, Lake, Geauga, 
Portage, Ashtabula, and Tuscarawas.'' In the TSD section, ``Conclusion 
for the Cleveland Area,'' the EPA stated, ``After evaluating the five 
factors, the EPA is not modifying the State's recommendation and is 
designating Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage, and Summit 
Counties as the Cleveland nonattainment area for the 2015 ozone 
NAAQS.'' The EPA's final TSD for Ohio is located in the docket for the 
April 30, 2018, designations rule (document number EPA-HQ-OAR-2017-
0548-0381) and is the key document setting forth the designations for 
the counties in Ohio.
    In a letter from the EPA Administrator to the governor of Ohio, 
sent at the same time the April 30, 2018, rule was signed, the EPA 
identified the counties the EPA was designating as nonattainment as 
part of the Cincinnati, OH-KY, Cleveland, Ohio, and Columbus, Ohio 
nonattainment areas and provided that the remaining portions of Ohio, 
which includes Carroll County, were being designated as attainment/
unclassifiable.

Pennsylvania

    In the April 30, 2018, designations rule, the EPA did not include 
Carbon, Lehigh, Monroe, Northampton and Pike Counties in the 
designation regulatory table for Pennsylvania. The EPA is adding those 
counties to the table consistent with the rulemaking record. These five 
counties are part of the New York-Newark, New York-New Jersey-
Connecticut-Pennsylvania (NY-NJ-CT-PA) CSA. The EPA's final TSD for the 
New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island, NY-NJ-CT nonattainment area 
states that the area of analysis is the CSA, with the additional county 
of Middlesex in Connecticut. The nonattainment area is also referred to 
as the New York Metro Nonattainment Area. In the final TSD section 
``Conclusion for The New York Metro Area,'' the EPA states, ``The 
counties of Dutchess, Orange, Putnam and Ulster in New York; Carbon, 
Lehigh, Monroe, Northampton and Pike in Pennsylvania are being excluded 
from the New York Metro nonattainment area. . . . .'' The EPA's final 
TSD for New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island, NY-NJ-CT 
nonattainment area is located in the docket for April 30, 2018, 
designation rule (document number EPA-HQ-OAR-0548-0411).
    In a letter from the EPA Administrator to the governor of 
Pennsylvania, sent at the same time the April 30, 2018, rule was 
signed, the EPA summarized the portions of Pennsylvania that the agency 
was designating. The EPA identified the counties in Pennsylvania that 
were being designated as nonattainment as part of the Philadelphia-
Wilmington-Atlantic City, PA-NJ-MD-DE nonattainment area and provided 
that the remaining portions of the state, which includes Carbon, 
Lehigh, Monroe, Northampton and Pike Counties, were being designated as 
attainment/unclassifiable.

Virginia

    In the April 30, 2018, designation rule, the EPA listed two areas 
out of order in the designation regulatory table for Virginia. To 
correct the formatting error, the EPA is moving the entries for the 
``Fredericksburg City'' and ``Winchester City'' attainment/
unclassifiable areas to list them alphabetically with the other 
independent cities that are designated as attainment/unclassifiable. 
Thus, the ``Fredericksburg City'' attainment/unclassifiable area will 
be listed after the entry for ``Franklin City'' attainment/
unclassifiable area and the ``Winchester City'' attainment/
unclassifiable area will be listed after the entry for ``Williamsburg 
City'' attainment/unclassifiable area.

A. Executive Order 12866: Regulatory Planning and Review and Executive 
Order 13563: Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review

    This action is exempt from review by the OMB because it responds to 
the CAA requirement to promulgate air quality designations after 
promulgation of a new or revised NAAQS.

B. Executive Order 13771: Reducing Regulations and Controlling 
Regulatory Costs

    This action is not an Executive Order 13771 regulatory action 
because actions such as air quality designations associated with a new 
or revised NAAQS are exempt from review under Executive Order 12866.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA)

    This action does not impose an information collection burden under 
the PRA. In this action, the EPA is correcting errors in the regulatory 
text regarding the designation of certain areas for the 2015 ozone 
NAAQS consistent with the rulemaking record. This action does not 
contain any information collection activities.

D. Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA)

    This designation action under Clean Air Act (CAA) section 107(d) is 
not subject to the RFA. The RFA applies only to rules subject to 
notice-and-comment rulemaking requirements under the Administrative 
Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. 553, or any other statute. Section 
107(d)(2)(B) of the CAA explicitly provides that designations are 
exempt from the notice-and-comment provisions of the APA. In addition, 
designations under CAA section 107(d) are not among the list of actions 
that are subject to the notice-and-comment rulemaking requirements of 
CAA section 307(d).

E. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA)

    This action does not contain any unfunded mandate as described in 
UMRA, 2 U.S.C. 1531-1538 and does not significantly or uniquely affect 
small governments. The action imposes no enforceable duty on any state, 
local or tribal governments or the private sector.

F. Executive Order 13132: Federalism

    This action does not have federalism implications. It will not have 
substantial direct effects on the states, on the relationship between 
the national

[[Page 52160]]

government and the states, or on the distribution of power and 
responsibilities among the various levels of government. The division 
of responsibility between the federal government and the states for 
purposes of implementing the NAAQS is established under the CAA.

G. Executive Order 13175: Consultation and Coordination With Indian 
Tribal Governments

    This action does not have tribal implications as specified in 
Executive Order 13175. This action corrects errors in the regulatory 
tables in the ozone designation rules signed by the EPA Administrator 
on November 6, 2017, and April 30, 2018. The corrections are consistent 
with the rulemaking record. Thus, Executive Order 13175 does not apply.

H. Executive Order 13045: Protection of Children From Environmental 
Health and Safety Risks

    The EPA interprets Executive Order 13045 as applying to those 
regulatory actions that concern environmental health or safety risks 
that the EPA has reason to believe may disproportionately affect 
children, per the definition of ``covered regulatory action'' in 
section 2-202 of the Executive Order. This action is not subject to 
Executive Order 13045 because it does not establish an environmental 
standard intended to mitigate health or safety risks.

I. Executive Order 13211: Actions That Significantly Affect Energy 
Supply, Distribution or Use

    This action is not subject to Executive Order 13211 because it is 
not a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866.

J. National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA)

    This rulemaking does not involve technical standards.

K. Executive Order 12898: Federal Actions To Address Environmental 
Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations

    This action does not have disproportionately high and adverse human 
health or environmental effects on minority populations, low-income 
populations and/or indigenous peoples, as specified in Executive Order 
12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994). This action corrects errors in 
the regulatory text regarding the designation of certain areas in for 
the 2015 ozone NAAQS. The corrections are consistent with the 
rulemaking record for the designation rules signed by the EPA 
Administrator on November 6, 2017, and April 30, 2018.

L. Congressional Review Act (CRA)

    This action is subject to the CRA, and the EPA will submit a rule 
report to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of 
the U.S. This action is not a ``major rule'' as defined by 5 U.S.C. 
804(2).
