[EPA–R05–OAR–2019–0377; FRL–10002– 93–Region 5] Air Plan Approval; Indiana; Second Maintenance Plan for 1997 Ozone NAAQS Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: Pursuant to the Clean Air Act (CAA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is approving as a revision to the Indiana State Implementation Plan (SIP), the State’s plan for maintaining the 1997 ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) through the end of the second 10-year maintenance period. On June 20, 2019, the Indiana Department of Environmental Management submitted the State’s plan for maintaining the 1997 ozone NAAQS for the Indianapolis, La Porte County, and South Bend-Elkhart areas and the Indiana portions of the Chicago-Gary-Lake County, IL-IN (Chicago), Cincinnati-Hamilton, OH-KYIN (Cincinnati), and Louisville, KY-IN (Louisville) multi-state areas. EPA proposed to approve the submission on September 25, 2019, and received no comments. This action makes certain commitments related to maintenance of the 1997 ozone NAAQS in these areas federally enforceable as part of the Indiana SIP. DATES: This final rule is effective on January 13, 2020. ADDRESSES: EPA has established a docket for this action under Docket ID No. EPA–R05–OAR–2019–0377.

What is being addressed in this document? This rule approves Indiana’s June 20, 2019 submission to provide for maintenance of the 1997 ozone NAAQS for the Indianapolis, La Porte County, and South Bend-Elkhart areas and the Indiana portions of the Chicago, Cincinnati, and Louisville areas through the end of the second 10-year maintenance period. The background for this action is discussed in detail in EPA’s notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM), dated September 25, 2019 (84 FR 50354). II. What comments did we receive on the proposed rule? In the NPRM, EPA provided a 30-day review and comment period for the proposed rule. The comment period ended on October 25, 2019. We received no comments on the proposed rule. III. What action is EPA taking? EPA is approving, as a revision to the Indiana SIP, the State’s plan for maintaining the 1997 ozone NAAQS for the Indianapolis, La Porte County, and South Bend-Elkhart areas and the Indiana portions of the Chicago, Cincinnati, and Louisville areas through the end of the second 10-year maintenance period. VI. 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, PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 68049 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 it is not a significant regulatory action 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 disproportionate human health or environmental effects with practical, appropriate, 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).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document, the terms ``we'', 
``us'', and ``our'' refer to the EPA.

I. What is being addressed in this document?

    This rule approves Indiana's June 20, 2019 submission to provide 
for maintenance of the 1997 ozone NAAQS for the Indianapolis, La Porte 
County, and South Bend-Elkhart areas and the Indiana portions of the 
Chicago, Cincinnati, and Louisville areas through the end of the second 
10-year maintenance period. The background for this action is discussed 
in detail in EPA's notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM), dated 
September 25, 2019 (84 FR 50354).

II. What comments did we receive on the proposed rule?

    In the NPRM, EPA provided a 30-day review and comment period for 
the proposed rule. The comment period ended on October 25, 2019. We 
received no comments on the proposed rule.

III. What action is EPA taking?

    EPA is approving, as a revision to the Indiana SIP, the State's 
plan for maintaining the 1997 ozone NAAQS for the Indianapolis, La 
Porte County, and South Bend-Elkhart areas and the Indiana portions of 
the Chicago, Cincinnati, and Louisville areas through the end of the 
second 10-year maintenance period.

VI. 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 it is not a significant regulatory 
action 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 disproportionate human health or environmental effects with 
practical, appropriate, 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).
