ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is redesignating the West Silver Valley, Idaho nonattainment area to attainment for the 2012 annual fine particulate matter (PM2.5) National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS). EPA is also approving a maintenance plan for the area that demonstrates continued attainment of the 2012 PM2.5 NAAQS through the year 2031, which Idaho submitted along with the redesignation request for inclusion into the Idaho State Implementation Plan (SIP). Additionally, EPA is approving the 2031 motor vehicle emissions budgets included in Idaho’s maintenance plan for PM2.5, nitrogen oxides and volatile organic compounds. EPA is taking this action pursuant to the Clean Air Act (CAA or the Act). DATES: This action is effective on December 16, 2021. ADDRESSES: EPA has established a docket for this action under Docket ID No. EPA–R10–OAR–2020–0305. All documents in the docket are listed on the https://www.regulations.gov website.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Claudia Vaupel, (206) 553–6121, vaupel.claudia@epa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document whenever ‘‘we,’’ ‘‘us,’’ or ‘‘our’’ is used, it is intended to refer to EPA. I. Background On June 2, 2020, Idaho submitted a request for EPA to redesignate the West Silver Valley area to attainment for the 2012 annual PM2.5 NAAQS under section 107(d)(3)(E) of the CAA. On September 15, 2021, EPA proposed to approve Idaho’s SIP revision (86 FR 51318). An explanation of the CAA requirements, a detailed analysis of the submittal, and the EPA’s reasons for approval were provided in the notice of proposed rulemaking. The public comment period for this proposed rulemaking closed on October 15, 2021. EPA received no comments during the public comment period. II. Final Action EPA is redesignating the West Silver Valley 2012 annual PM2.5 nonattainment area and is approving the associated maintenance plan and motor vehicle emission budgets for the area. The designation status of the West Silver Valley under 40 CFR part 81 will be revised to attainment upon the effective date of this final action. III. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Under the Clean Air Act, the Administrator is required to approve a SIP submission that complies with the provisions of the Clean Air Act 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 Clean Air Act. 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.); E:\FR\FM\16NOR1.SGM 16NOR1
