ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is approving a request submitted by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) on May 16, 2017, to revise the Wisconsin State Implementation Plan (SIP). The submission includes amendments to the Wisconsin Administrative Code updating the definition of ‘‘volatile organic compound (VOC)’’ to add eight compounds to the list of exempt compounds. In addition, WDNR is also requesting the withdrawal of several previously approved provisions of the Wisconsin Administrative Code from the SIP concerning the State’s Stage II vapor recovery (Stage II) program that terminated in 2012. EPA approved the removal of the Stage II program as a component of the Wisconsin SIP in 2013, including the approval of a demonstration under section 110(l) of the Clean Air Act (CAA) that addressed emissions impacts associated with the removal of the program. EPA proposed to approve the State’s submittal on May 25, 2018. daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:53 Oct 24, 2018 Jkt 247001 This final rule is effective on November 26, 2018.

Acevedo, Mobile Source Program Manager, Control Strategies Section, Air Programs Branch (AR 18J), Environmental Protection Agency, Region 5, 77 West Jackson Boulevard, Chicago, Illinois 60604, (312) 886–6061, acevedo.francisco@epa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document, wherever ‘‘we’’, ‘‘us’’ or ‘‘our’’ is used, we mean EPA. DATES: I. What is being addressed by this document? On May 25, 2018, at 83 FR 24267, EPA proposed to approve a revision to the Wisconsin SIP that updates the definition of VOC at Wisconsin Administrative Code Chapter NR 400.02(162) to add the following compounds to the list of exclusions at NR 400.02(162): Trans-1,3,3,3tetrafluoropropene (HFO-1234ze), HCF2OCF2H (HFE-134), HCF2OCF2OCF2H (HFE-236cal2), HCF2OCF2CF2OCF2H (HFE-338pcc13), HCF2OCF2OCF2CF2OCF2H (H-Galaden 1040X or H-Galden ZT 130 (or 150 or 180), Trans-1-chloro-3,3,3-triflouroprop1-ene (SolsticeTM 1233zd(E)), 2,3,3,3tetraflouropropene (HFO-1234yf), and 2amino-2-methyl-1-propanol (AMP; CAS number 124–68–5). Wisconsin took this action based on EPA’s 2012, 2013, and 2014 rulemakings in which EPA determined that these compounds have a negligible contribution to tropospheric ozone formation and thus should be excluded from the definition of VOC codified at 40 CFR 51.100(s). See 77 FR 37610 (June 22, 2012); 78 FR 9823 (February 12, 2013); 78 FR 62451 (October 22, 2013); 78 FR 53029 (August 28, 2013); and 79 FR 17037 (March 27, 2014). This action also approves minor stylistic edits for clarity in NR PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 420.02(39), NR 420.03(4)(b)3, NR 420.04(1)(b)4, and NR 420.04(3)(c)1. EPA is also approving the withdrawal of several remaining provisions from the Wisconsin SIP that are related to the Stage II vapor recovery program that was terminated by Wisconsin in 2012. Wisconsin originally submitted a SIP revision to EPA on November 18, 1992, to satisfy the requirement of section 182(b)(3) of the CAA. The revision applied to Kenosha, Kewanee, Manitowoc, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Sheboygan, Washington and Waukesha counties, and was incorporated into the WDNR’s 1993–94 ozone 15% Control Plan. EPA fully approved Wisconsin’s Stage II program on August 13, 1993 (53 FR 43080), including the program’s legal authority and administrative requirements found in Section 285.31 of the Wisconsin Statutes and Chapter NR 420.045 of the Wisconsin Administrative Code. On November 12, 2012, WDNR submitted a SIP revision requesting the removal of Stage II requirements under NR 420.045 of the Wisconsin Administrative Code from the Wisconsin SIP. To support the removal of the Stage II requirements, the revision included a section 110(l) demonstration addressing the emissions impacts associated with the removal of the program. On November 4, 2013 (78 FR 65875), EPA approved the removal of the Stage II requirements under NR 420.045 of the Wisconsin Administrative Code from the Wisconsin SIP. In this action EPA approves the removal of the residual Stage II provisions that remained in place after the program was decommissioned. These provisions are NR 420.02(8m), 420.02(26), 420.02(32), 420.02(38m), NR 425.035, NR 439.06(3)(i), NR 484.05(4), NR 484.05(5), and NR 494.04. II. What comments did we receive on the proposed SIP revision? Our May 25, 2018 proposed rule provided a 30-day review and comment period. The comment period closed on June 25, 2018. EPA received one comment during the public comment period, but the comment was completely outside of the scope of this approval and, therefore, is not being addressed as part of this final action. III. What action is EPA taking? EPA is approving the revision to the Wisconsin SIP submitted by WDNR on May 16, 2017, because the revision is consistent with EPA’s prior actions revising the definition of VOC. In addition, the removal of remaining Stage II program provisions from the SIP E:\FR\FM\25OCR1.SGM 25OCR1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 207 / Thursday, October 25, 2018 / Rules and Regulations meets all applicable requirements, and will not interfere with reasonable further progress or attainment of any of the national ambient air quality standards. daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES IV. Incorporation by Reference In this document, EPA is finalizing regulatory text that includes incorporation by reference. In accordance with requirements of 1 CFR 51.5, EPA is finalizing the incorporation by reference of the Wisconsin Regulations described in the amendments to 40 CFR part 52 set forth below. EPA has made, and will continue to make, these documents generally available through www.regulations.gov and at the EPA Region 5 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 CAA and applicable Federal regulations. 42 U.S.C. 7410(k); 40 CFR 52.02(a). Thus, in reviewing SIP submissions, 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:53 Oct 24, 2018 Jkt 247001 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 • Does not provide 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 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. 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 December 24, 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 section 307(b)(2).)

I. What is being addressed by this document?

    On May 25, 2018, at 83 FR 24267, EPA proposed to approve a revision 
to the Wisconsin SIP that updates the definition of VOC at Wisconsin 
Administrative Code Chapter NR 400.02(162) to add the following 
compounds to the list of exclusions at NR 400.02(162): Trans-1,3,3,3-
tetrafluoropropene (HFO-1234ze), HCF2OCF2H (HFE-
134), HCF2OCF2OCF2H (HFE-236cal2), 
HCF2OCF2CF2OCF2H (HFE-
338pcc13), 
HCF2OCF2OCF2CF2OCF2
H (H-Galaden 1040X or H-Galden ZT 130 (or 150 or 180), Trans-1-chloro-
3,3,3-triflouroprop-1-ene (Solstice\TM\ 1233zd(E)), 2,3,3,3-
tetraflouropropene (HFO-1234yf), and 2-amino-2-methyl-1-propanol (AMP; 
CAS number 124-68-5). Wisconsin took this action based on EPA's 2012, 
2013, and 2014 rulemakings in which EPA determined that these compounds 
have a negligible contribution to tropospheric ozone formation and thus 
should be excluded from the definition of VOC codified at 40 CFR 
51.100(s). See 77 FR 37610 (June 22, 2012); 78 FR 9823 (February 12, 
2013); 78 FR 62451 (October 22, 2013); 78 FR 53029 (August 28, 2013); 
and 79 FR 17037 (March 27, 2014). This action also approves minor 
stylistic edits for clarity in NR 420.02(39), NR 420.03(4)(b)3, NR 
420.04(1)(b)4, and NR 420.04(3)(c)1.
    EPA is also approving the withdrawal of several remaining 
provisions from the Wisconsin SIP that are related to the Stage II 
vapor recovery program that was terminated by Wisconsin in 2012. 
Wisconsin originally submitted a SIP revision to EPA on November 18, 
1992, to satisfy the requirement of section 182(b)(3) of the CAA. The 
revision applied to Kenosha, Kewanee, Manitowoc, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, 
Racine, Sheboygan, Washington and Waukesha counties, and was 
incorporated into the WDNR's 1993-94 ozone 15% Control Plan. EPA fully 
approved Wisconsin's Stage II program on August 13, 1993 (53 FR 43080), 
including the program's legal authority and administrative requirements 
found in Section 285.31 of the Wisconsin Statutes and Chapter NR 
420.045 of the Wisconsin Administrative Code.
    On November 12, 2012, WDNR submitted a SIP revision requesting the 
removal of Stage II requirements under NR 420.045 of the Wisconsin 
Administrative Code from the Wisconsin SIP. To support the removal of 
the Stage II requirements, the revision included a section 110(l) 
demonstration addressing the emissions impacts associated with the 
removal of the program. On November 4, 2013 (78 FR 65875), EPA approved 
the removal of the Stage II requirements under NR 420.045 of the 
Wisconsin Administrative Code from the Wisconsin SIP. In this action 
EPA approves the removal of the residual Stage II provisions that 
remained in place after the program was decommissioned. These 
provisions are NR 420.02(8m), 420.02(26), 420.02(32), 420.02(38m), NR 
425.035, NR 439.06(3)(i), NR 484.05(4), NR 484.05(5), and NR 494.04.

II. What comments did we receive on the proposed SIP revision?

    Our May 25, 2018 proposed rule provided a 30-day review and comment 
period. The comment period closed on June 25, 2018. EPA received one 
comment during the public comment period, but the comment was 
completely outside of the scope of this approval and, therefore, is not 
being addressed as part of this final action.

III. What action is EPA taking?

    EPA is approving the revision to the Wisconsin SIP submitted by 
WDNR on May 16, 2017, because the revision is consistent with EPA's 
prior actions revising the definition of VOC. In addition, the removal 
of remaining Stage II program provisions from the SIP

[[Page 53817]]

meets all applicable requirements, and will not interfere with 
reasonable further progress or attainment of any of the national 
ambient air quality standards.

IV. Incorporation by Reference

    In this document, EPA is finalizing regulatory text that includes 
incorporation by reference. In accordance with requirements of 1 CFR 
51.5, EPA is finalizing the incorporation by reference of the Wisconsin 
Regulations described in the amendments to 40 CFR part 52 set forth 
below. EPA has made, and will continue to make, these documents 
generally available through www.regulations.gov and at the EPA Region 5 
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 CAA and applicable 
Federal regulations. 42 U.S.C. 7410(k); 40 CFR 52.02(a). Thus, in 
reviewing SIP submissions, 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 CAA; and
     Does not provide 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 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. 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 December 24, 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 section 307(b)(2).)
