August 27,2013

PROPOSED RULES

Implementation of the 2008 National Ambient Air Quality Standards for Ozone: State Implementation Plan Requirements
[FR DOC# C1-2013-13233]

Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; State of Iowa [FR DOC# 2013-20752] SUMMARY: EPA is proposing
to approve revisions to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) for the state of Iowa. The purpose of these revisions is to
update the Polk County Board of Health Rules and Regulations. These proposed revisions reflect updates to the Iowa
statewide rules previously approved by EPA and will ensure consistency between the applicable local agency rules and
Federally-approved rules.

 
RULES

Electronic Reporting of Toxics Release Inventory Data [FR DOC# 2013-20744] SUMMARY: In this final rule, EPA requires
facilities to report non- trade-secret Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) forms to EPA using electronic software provided by the
Agency. Electronic reporting of TRI forms provides numerous benefits, including making it easier for facilities to report
accurate information, expediting form completion due to the pre-population of many form elements, decreasing the cost to
EPA of processing forms, and providing TRI information more quickly to the public. The only exception to this electronic
reporting requirement is for the few facilities that submit trade secret TRI information, which will continue to submit their
trade secret reporting forms and substantiation forms in hard copy. Under this rulemaking, EPA also requires facilities to
submit electronically via the Internet (i.e., not on paper forms or CD-ROMs) any revisions or withdrawals of previously
submitted TRI reporting forms. Additionally, EPA will no longer accept submissions, revisions, or withdrawals of TRI
reporting forms submitted for reporting years prior to reporting year 1991. For trade secret submissions, EPA will still only
accept revisions or withdrawals of previously submitted trade secret information on paper forms, though only for reporting
years back to reporting year 1991.

Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; State of Iowa [FR DOC# 2013-20750] SUMMARY: EPA is approving
revisions to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) for the state of Iowa. The purpose of these revisions is to update the Polk
County Board of Health Rules and Regulations, Chapter V, Air Pollution. The revisions reflect updates to the Iowa
statewide rules previously approved by EPA and will ensure consistency between the applicable local agency rules and
Federally-approved rules.
