PROPOSED RULES

Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; California; South Coast; Contingency Measures for 1997 PM2.5 [FR DOC# 2013-14918] SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve a state implementation plan (SIP) revision submitted by California to address Clean Air Act (CAA) contingency measure requirements for the 1997 annual and 24-hour national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for fine particulate matter (PM<INF>2.5</INF>) in the Los Angeles-South Coast Air Basin (South Coast). Final approval of this SIP revision would terminate the sanctions clocks and a federal implementation plan (FIP) clock that were triggered by EPA’s partial disapproval of a related SIP submission on November 9, 2011 (76 FR 69928).

Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Rescission of Federal Implementation Plan; Wyoming; Prevention of Significant Deterioration; Greenhouse Gas Tailoring Rule Revisions [FR DOC# 2013-15038] SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve revisions and additions to the Wyoming State Implementation Plan (SIP) submitted by the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (WDEQ) to EPA on March 8, 2013. The proposed SIP revision to the Wyoming Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) program updates the program to regulate permitting of sources of greenhouse gases (GHGs). Specifically, we propose to approve revisions to Chapter 1, Common Provisions, Section 3, Definitions, and Chapter 6, Permitting Requirements, Section 4, Prevention of Significant Deterioration, and the addition of Chapter 1, Section 7, Greenhouse Gases. The March 8, 2013 proposed SIP revision to the Wyoming PSD program establishes emission thresholds for determining which new stationary sources and modifications to existing stationary sources become subject to Wyoming’s PSD permitting requirements for their GHG emissions. The March 8, 2013 proposed SIP revision also defers until July 21, 2014 application of the PSD permitting requirements to biogenic carbon dioxide emissions from bioenergy and other biogenic stationary sources. EPA is proposing to approve the March 8, 2013 SIP revision to the Wyoming PSD permitting program as being consistent with federal requirements for PSD permitting. EPA is also proposing to rescind the GHG PSD Federal Implementation Plan (FIP) for Wyoming that was put in place to ensure the availability of a permitting authority for GHG PSD permitting in Wyoming, which would be effective upon final approval of the March 8, 2013 PSD SIP revision. EPA is proposing this action under section 110 and part C of the Clean Air Act (the Act or CAA).

Revisions to the California State Implementation Plan, South Coast Air Quality Management District [FR DOC# 2013-14917] SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve revisions to the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) portion of the California State Implementation Plan (SIP). These revisions concern volatile organic compound (VOC), oxides of nitrogen (NO<INF>X</INF>), and particulate matter (PM) emissions from open burning and wood-burning devices. We are approving local rules that regulate these emission sources under the Clean Air Act as amended in 1990 (CAA or the Act). We are taking comments on this proposal and plan to follow with a final action.

Ocean Dumping; Atchafalaya-West Ocean Dredged Material Disposal Site Designation [FR DOC# 2013-14758] SUMMARY: On May 21, 2013, EPA Region 6 proposed to designate the Atchafalaya-West Ocean Dredged Material Disposal Site pursuant to the draft EIS, “Designation of the Atchafalaya River Bar Channel Ocean Dredged Material Disposal Site Pursuant to Section 102(c) of the Marine Protection, Research and Sanctuaries Act of 1972, St. Mary Parish, Louisiana” (March 2013). We are hereby extending the public comment period for the proposed rule and the draft EIS.

 

RULES

Adequacy Status of the Submitted 2009 and 2025 PM2.5 [FR DOC# 2013-14908] SUMMARY: In this action, EPA is notifying the public that we have found that the motor vehicle emissions budgets for PM<INF>2.5</INF> and NO<INF>X</INF> in the submitted maintenance plans for the New Jersey portions of the New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island, NY-NJ-CT, and Philadelphia-Wilmington, PA-NJ-DE, PM<INF>2.5</INF> nonattainment areas to be adequate for transportation conformity purposes. The transportation conformity rule requires that the EPA conduct a public process and make an affirmative decision on the adequacy of budgets before they can be used by metropolitan planning organizations in conformity determinations. As a result of our finding, two metropolitan planning organizations in New Jersey (the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority and the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission) must use the new 2009 and 2025 PM<INF>2.5</INF> budgets for future transportation conformity determinations.

Interim Final Determination To Defer Sanctions; California; South Coast Air Quality Management District [FR DOC# 2013-14916] SUMMARY: EPA is making an interim final determination to defer the imposition of sanctions based on a proposed approval of revisions to the South Coast Air Quality Management District’s (SCAQMD) portion of the California State Implementation Plan (SIP) published elsewhere in this Federal Register. The revisions concern the Clean Air Act (CAA) contingency measure requirement for the 1997 annual and 24-hour national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for fine particulate matter (PM<INF>2.5</INF>) in the Los Angeles-South Coast Air Basin (South Coast).
