ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or the ‘‘Agency’’) is proposing full approval of the revised and recodified North Dakota operating permit program for stationary sources subject to title V of the Clean Air Act (CAA or the ‘‘Act’’). On August 6, 2018, North Dakota submitted a request for approval of its revisions to the North Dakota operating permit program (the ‘‘title V program’’) for stationary sources subject to title V of the CAA and recodification of the State’s title V program under a new title of the North Dakota Administrative Code (NDAC). The EPA determined that the revised and recodified program substantially met the requirements of title V of the Act and Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) but was not fully approvable because the State law provisions for judicial review were not consistent with program requirements found in the CFR. Thus, EPA issued an interim approval of North Dakota’s title V program. North Dakota has made the changes required for full program approval. Accordingly, the EPA is proposing this action in accordance with the CAA and CFR title V program approval requirements. DATES: Written comments must be received on or before March 26, 2021.

Proposed Full Approval of Revised Clean Air Act Operating Permit 
Program; North Dakota

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or the ``Agency'') is 
proposing full approval of the revised and recodified North Dakota 
operating permit program for stationary sources subject to title V of 
the Clean Air Act (CAA or the ``Act''). On August 6, 2018, North Dakota 
submitted a request for approval of its revisions to the North Dakota 
operating permit program (the ``title V program'') for stationary 
sources subject to title V of the CAA and recodification of the State's 
title V program under a new title of the North Dakota Administrative 
Code (NDAC). The EPA determined that the revised and recodified program 
substantially met the requirements of title V of the Act and Code of 
Federal Regulations (CFR) but was not fully approvable because the 
State law provisions for judicial review were not consistent with 
program requirements found in the CFR. Thus, EPA issued an interim 
approval of North Dakota's title V program. North Dakota has made the 
changes required for full program approval. Accordingly, the EPA is 
proposing this action in accordance with the CAA and CFR title V 
program approval requirements.
