PROPOSED RULES

Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Pennsylvania; Withdrawal of Proposed
Rule for the Update of the Motor Vehicle Emissions Budgets for the Lancaster 1997 8-Hour Ozone
Maintenance Area [FR DOC# 2013-23382] SUMMARY: EPA is withdrawing the proposed rule proposing
approval of revisions to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s State Implementation Plan (SIP). The

oxides (NO<INF>X</INF>) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and an updated point source inventory
for NO<INF>X</INF> and VOCs for the 1997 8-Hour Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard SIP for
Lancaster County. In the associated direct final rule published on August 8, 2013, the table with the revised
MVEBs contained numerical errors. Therefore, EPA is withdrawing this proposed rule also published on
August 8, 2013. The proposed rule is hereby withdrawn in its entirety. EPA will commence a separate
rulemaking action for this SIP revision.

Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Maryland; Revision to Emission Limitations
for R. Paul Smith Power Station; Withdrawal of Proposed Rule [FR DOC# 2013-23507] SUMMARY: On

vehicle emissions budgets for use in transportation conformity determinations necessary for the
Sacramento area, and the attainment year emissions inventory submitted with the plan.

Outer Continental Shelf Air Regulations Consistency Update for California [FR DOC# 2013-23377]
SUMMARY: EPA is finalizing the update of the Outer Continental Shelf (“OCS”) Air Regulations proposed
in the Federal Register on March 22, 2011. Requirements applying to OCS sources located within 25 miles
of States’ seaward boundaries must be updated periodically to remain consistent with the requirements of
the corresponding onshore area (“COA”), as mandated by section 328(a)(1) of the Clean Air Act, as
amended in 1990 (“the Act”). The portion of the OCS air regulations that is being updated pertains to the
requirements for OCS sources for which the Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District (“Santa
Barbara County APCD” or “District”) is the designated COA. The intended effect of approving the OCS
requirements for the Santa Barbara County APCD is to regulate emissions from OCS sources in
accordance with the requirements onshore.

FD&C Yellow No. 5; Exemption From the Requirement of a Tolerance [FR DOC# 2013-23391] SUMMARY:
This regulation establishes an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for residues of FD&C Yellow
No. 5 (CAS Reg. No. 1934-21- 0) when used as an inert ingredient (dye) in antimicrobial pesticide
formulations applied to food-contact surfaces in public eating places, dairy-processing equipment, and
food-processing equipment and utensils. Exponent, Inc. on behalf of Ecolab, Inc., submitted a petition to
EPA under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), requesting establishment of an exemption
from the requirement of a tolerance. These regulations eliminate the need to establish a maximum
permissible level for residues of FD&C Yellow No. 5.
