FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: David A. Trissell, General Counsel, at 202–789–6820. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 15, 2021, the Commission established this proceeding to seek public input regarding any additional regulations that may be necessary to achieve the objectives of the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act (PAEA) 1 over the longer-term, particularly for issues such as ‘‘maximizing incentives to increase efficiency and reduce costs, maintaining high-quality service standards, and assuring financial stability (including retained earnings).’’ 2 The Commission established April 15, 2021, and May 17, 2021, as the deadlines for filing comments and reply comments, respectively. Order No. 5816 at 15. On March 23, 2021, the Postal Service published a ten-year plan announcing potential changes intended to achieve financial stability and service excellence.3 On April 1, 2021, the National Association of Presort Mailers (NAPM) filed a request for an extension of the deadline for initial comments in this proceeding.4 NAPM raises three reasons in support of its Request, which are generally premised on recent 1 Public Law 109–435, 201, 120 Stat. 3198, 3204 (2006). 2 Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Regarding Performance Incentive Mechanism, January 15, 2021, at 1 (Order No. 5816). 3 See United States Postal Service, Delivering for America: Our Vision and Ten-Year Plan to Achieve Financial Sustainability and Service Excellence, March 23, 2021, at 3, available at https:// about.usps.com/what/strategic-plans/delivering-foramerica/assets/USPS_Delivering-For-America.pdf (Postal Service’s Plan). 4 Request for Extension of Initial Comments Deadline, April 1, 2021 (Request).

First, NAPM asserts that it would be premature to discuss the issues raised in this proceeding without a fuller understanding of the potential changes announced in the Postal Service’s Plan. See id. Second, NAPM observes that commenters may face difficulties in providing effective comments on issues related to the maintenance of high-quality service standards by the established deadline because the Postal Service also recently announced plans to reduce service standards for First-Class Mail and Periodicals.5 Third, noting that the Postal Service has recently initiated five proceedings in which mailing association stakeholders intend to participate,6 NAPM requests that the Commission consider how the resources of commenters affect their ability to meaningfully respond to multiple filing deadlines. See Request at 2. The Association of Postal Commerce (PostCom) and the Public Representative support this Request.7 PostCom agrees with NAPM’s assessment of the recent developments. PostCom Statement at 1. The Public Representative asserts that extending both the initial and reply comment deadlines would allow interested persons to better evaluate the advisability of adopting a performance incentive mechanism and the structure 5 See Request at 2; see also Postal Service’s Plan at 52; Docket No. N2021–1, Notice of Pre-Filing Conference, March 23, 2021. 6 No specific proceedings are referenced in the Request other than Docket No. N2021–1; however, the Commission takes note of the following four proceedings recently initiated by the Postal Service: Docket Nos.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document whenever ‘‘we,’’ ‘‘us,’’ or ‘‘our’’ is used, we mean EPA. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with PROPOSALS I. Background for Our Proposed Action Ohio adopted OAC Chapter 3745–45 Permit Fee rules at the state level on November 24, 1973, and EPA approved the rules into Ohio’s SIP on November 24, 1981 (46 FR 57490). Having OAC Chapter 3745–45 adopted into the SIP fulfilled the CAA section 110(a)(2)(K) requirement for Ohio to have a fee structure in place and to collect fees. The air permit fee requirements were then moved from CAA section 110(a)(2)(K) to CAA section 110(a)(2)(L) as a result of the 1990 CAA amendments. EPA approved (60 FR 42045) Ohio’s Title V operating permits program on August 15, 1995. Ohio’s Title V program relies on the air permit fee structure outlined by statute in ORC 3745.11. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:22 Apr 12, 2021 Jkt 253001 Since Ohio no longer relied on OAC 3745–45 for its air permit fee system, Ohio rescinded OAC 3745–45 in stages at the state level with the final rule being rescinded in 2003. At that time, Ohio did not request recission of OAC 3745–45 from the SIP. On November 12, 2020, OEPA submitted a request to approve the removal of all of OAC Chapter 3745–45 from the SIP. In support, OEPA indicated that it is relying instead on the permit fee system in Ohio’s Title V program, as contained in ORC 3745.11. No emissions increases will result from the removal of OAC Chapter 3745– 45 from the Ohio SIP. Because the rescinded OAC Chapter 3745–45 rules have been superseded by the Title V permit fee system as contained in ORC 3745.11, there are no CAA section 110(l) issues to address. II. What action is EPA taking? EPA is proposing to approve the removal of Ohio’s OAC Chapter 3745– 45 Permit Fee rule from the Ohio SIP. Removing OAC Chapter 3745–45 from the Ohio SIP is consistent with Federal regulations governing state permitting programs and would not interfere with reasonable further progress or attainment of any national ambient air quality standards. III. Incorporation by Reference In this document, EPA is proposing to amend regulatory text that includes incorporation by reference. EPA is proposing to remove the Chapter 3745– 45 Permit Fees provisions of the EPAApproved Ohio Regulations from the Ohio SIP, which is incorporated by reference in accordance with the requirements of 1 CFR part 51. EPA has made, and will continue to make the State Implementation Plan 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). IV. 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: PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 19175 • 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); • 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).

ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a final rule in the Federal Register on March 26, 2020, to complete the residual risk and technology review (RTR) for the Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Landfills source category as regulated under national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP). The final rule also made minor changes to the 2016 MSW Landfills New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) and Emission Guidelines and Compliance Times for MSW Landfills to improve implementation of the sets of rules affecting MSW landfills. In this action, the EPA is proposing technical revisions and clarifications for the NESHAP for MSW Landfills established in the March 26, 2020, final rule. These changes correct inadvertent errors and clarify wellhead monitoring requirements for the purpose of identifying excess air infiltration; delegation of authority to state, local, or tribal agencies for ‘‘emission standards’’; applicability of the General Provisions to affected MSW landfills; and handling of monitoring data for combustion devices during periods of monitoring system breakdowns, repairs, calibration checks, and adjustments. We are proposing further amendments to the 2016 MSW Landfills NSPS to clarify and align the timing of compliance for certain requirements of the 2016 MSW Landfills NSPS for existing MSW landfills that have modified but previously triggered the requirement to install a gas collection and control system (GCCS) under related MSW landfill rules.

I. Background for Our Proposed Action

    Ohio adopted OAC Chapter 3745-45 Permit Fee rules at the state 
level on November 24, 1973, and EPA approved the rules into Ohio's SIP 
on November 24, 1981 (46 FR 57490). Having OAC Chapter 3745-45 adopted 
into the SIP fulfilled the CAA section 110(a)(2)(K) requirement for 
Ohio to have a fee structure in place and to collect fees. The air 
permit fee requirements were then moved from CAA section 110(a)(2)(K) 
to CAA section 110(a)(2)(L) as a result of the 1990 CAA amendments. EPA 
approved (60 FR 42045) Ohio's Title V operating permits program on 
August 15, 1995. Ohio's Title V program relies on the air permit fee 
structure outlined by statute in ORC 3745.11.
    Since Ohio no longer relied on OAC 3745-45 for its air permit fee 
system, Ohio rescinded OAC 3745-45 in stages at the state level with 
the final rule being rescinded in 2003. At that time, Ohio did not 
request recission of OAC 3745-45 from the SIP. On November 12, 2020, 
OEPA submitted a request to approve the removal of all of OAC Chapter 
3745-45 from the SIP. In support, OEPA indicated that it is relying 
instead on the permit fee system in Ohio's Title V program, as 
contained in ORC 3745.11.
    No emissions increases will result from the removal of OAC Chapter 
3745-45 from the Ohio SIP. Because the rescinded OAC Chapter 3745-45 
rules have been superseded by the Title V permit fee system as 
contained in ORC 3745.11, there are no CAA section 110(l) issues to 
address.

II. What action is EPA taking?

    EPA is proposing to approve the removal of Ohio's OAC Chapter 3745-
45 Permit Fee rule from the Ohio SIP. Removing OAC Chapter 3745-45 from 
the Ohio SIP is consistent with Federal regulations governing state 
permitting programs and would not interfere with reasonable further 
progress or attainment of any national ambient air quality standards.

III. Incorporation by Reference

    In this document, EPA is proposing to amend regulatory text that 
includes incorporation by reference. EPA is proposing to remove the 
Chapter 3745-45 Permit Fees provisions of the EPA-Approved Ohio 
Regulations from the Ohio SIP, which is incorporated by reference in 
accordance with the requirements of 1 CFR part 51. EPA has made, and 
will continue to make the State Implementation Plan 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).

IV. 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);
     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
