I. Background Back to Top

Title V of the CAA Amendments of 1990 required all State permitting authorities to develop operating permits programs that met certain federal criteria codified at 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part 70. On November 30, 2001, we promulgated final full approval of 34 California districts' title V operating permits programs. See 66 FR 63503 (December 7, 2001). Our final rulemaking was challenged by several environmental and community groups alleging that the full approval was unlawful based, in part, on an exemption in section 42310(e) of the California Health and Safety Code of major agricultural sources from title V permitting. EPA entered into a settlement of this litigation which required, in part, that the Agency propose to partially withdraw approval of the 34 fully approved title V programs in California.

Sections 70.10(b) and 70.10(c) provide that EPA may withdraw a 40 CFR part 70 program approval, in whole or in part, whenever the permitting authority's legal authority does not meet the requirements of part 70 and the permitting authority fails to take corrective action. To commence regulatory action to partially withdraw title V program approval, EPA published a Notice of Deficiency (NOD) in the Federal Register. See 67 FR 35990 (May 22, 2002). Pursuant to 40 CFR 70.10(b)(2), publication of the NOD commenced a 90-day period during which the State of California had to take significant action to assure adequate administration and enforcement of the local districts' programs. As described in EPA's NOD, the Agency determined that “significant action” in this instance meant the revision or removal of California Health and Safety Code 42310(e), so that the local air pollution control districts could adequately administer and enforce the title V permitting program for stationary agricultural sources that are major sources of air pollution.

During the 90-day period provided to the State to take the necessary corrective action, EPA proposed to partially withdraw title V program approval in each of the 34 California districts with full program approval. See 67 FR 48426 (July 24, 2002). Since the State did not take the necessary action to assure adequate administration and enforcement of the title V program within the specified time frame, EPA took final action, pursuant to our authority at 40 CFR 70.10(b)(2)(i), to partially withdraw approval of the title V programs for the 34 local air districts listed above. See 67 FR 63551 (October 15, 2002).

On September 22, 2003, the Governor of California signed SB 700, which revised State law to remove the agricultural permitting exemption. The legislation eliminated the exemption and therefore corrected the deficiency we identified in the May 22, 2002 NOD. Therefore, on October 8, 2003, EPA proposed to approve a revision to the 34 district title V programs because districts now have the authority to permit all major stationary sources, including those agricultural sources that were formerly exempt from title V under State law (68 FR 58055). Based on this change in state law and our receipt of a legal opinion from the California Attorney General that confirms that the elimination of the agricultural permitting exemption from State law provides the 34 districts with authority to issue title V permits to major stationary agricultural sources, we are finalizing the program revision today.

II. Comments Received by EPA on Our Proposed Rulemaking and EPA's Responses Back to Top

EPA received one set of comments. Copies of these comments are available for inspection during normal business hours at Air Division, EPA Region 9, 75 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, California, 94105.

A summary of the significant comments, and our response thereto, follow.

Comment: The commenter alleges that the proposed rule requires review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and alleges that “farmers were not included” in the OMB review of the proposed part 70 rule in 1992. In addition, the commenter claims that regulation of stationary agricultural sources by California air pollution control districts will result in economic hardship for California farmers.

Response: It is difficult to determine the legal requirement that the commenter alleges EPA violated because the comment does not cite to any particular statutory, regulatory or executive requirement. To the extent the comment asserts that the rule must undergo OMB review, EPA disagrees. As we stated in the proposed rule, under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993), this action is not a “significant regulatory action”, and therefore not subject to OMB review. With regard to OMB review in 1992, it is not clear which rulemaking the commenter is referring to. If he is referring to the final part 70 rule, his statement is incorrect because the part 70 rule did undergo OMB review. The rule was judged to be “major” under Executive Order 12291, and a Regulatory Impact Analysis (RIA) was prepared and made available for public comment as part of EPA's May 10, 1991 proposal of part 70 [56 FR 21712]. All interested parties, including farmers, had access to the RIA and an opportunity to comment on it. If the commenter is referring to EPA's rulemaking actions to grant interim approval to individual district title V programs in California, he is incorrect because OMB exempted those state-specific actions from review. See, for example, EPA's April 24, 1996 final rule granting interim approval of the San Joaquin Valley Unified APCD title V operating permit program [61 FR 18083].

EPA also disagrees with the commenter's claim that approval of this program revision for 34 title V Operating Permits Programs will result in economic hardship for California farmers. Today's action affects only major agricultural stationary sources that already are subject to EPA's part 71 title V permitting program, and will not result in regulation of the majority of farms which are not subject to title V. The title V program revision EPA is approving, and EPA's termination of its implementation of a part 71 federal operating permit program for State-exempt major stationary agricultural sources, merely transfers the authority to permit such sources from EPA to the 34 districts. As stated in the Administrative Requirements section of this notice, this action merely approves state law as meeting Federal requirements and imposes no additional requirements beyond those imposed by state law. Accordingly, the Administrator has certified that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA). In making this certification, we note that the Regulatory Flexibility Act requires a certification only as to entities directly regulated by a rulemaking (e.g., farms that are major stationary sources under the Clean Air Act); it does not require us to look at small farms not subject to the final rule, or to downstream businesses or consumers that deal with the larger farms. See Cement Kiln Recycling Coalition v. EPA, 255 F.3d 855 (D.C. Cir. 2001).

III. Description of EPA's Final Action Back to Top

We are approving the program revision of the 34 Clean Air Act title V Operating Permits programs in the State of California. Our action is based on a legal opinion from the California Attorney General that confirms that the elimination of the agricultural permitting exemption from State law provides the 34 districts with authority to issue title V permits to major stationary agricultural sources.

IV. Effect of EPA's Rulemaking Back to Top

Our final action means that the 34 districts have title V programs that require all major stationary sources to obtain title V operating permits. It also terminates EPA's implementation of a part 71 federal operating permit program for formerly State-exempt major stationary agricultural sources within the jurisdiction of the 34 California air districts listed at the beginning of this final rule. EPA will not issue any permits to these sources, since the 34 districts will have the authority to issue title V permits to major agricultural stationary sources beginning on January 1, 2004. Therefore, EPA is no longer requiring major stationary agricultural sources to submit part 71 permit applications and suspends any outstanding application deadlines.

The May 22, 2002 NOD started an 18 month sanctions clock pursuant to CAA section 179(b). CAA Sec. 502(i)(1) and (2), 40 CFR 70.4(k) and 70.10(b)(2)-(4). California has undertaken all of the required corrections in response to the NOD. Therefore, the sanctions clock is terminated as of November 13, 2003, even though EPA's implementation of the Part 71 program will not be terminated until January 1, 2004.

V. Administrative Requirements Back to Top

Under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993), this action is not a “significant regulatory action” and therefore is not subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget. For this reason, this action is also not subject to Executive Order 13211, “Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use” (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001). This action merely approves state law as meeting Federal requirements and imposes no additional requirements beyond those imposed by state law. Accordingly, the Administrator certifies that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.). Because this rule approves pre-existing requirements under state law and does not impose any additional enforceable duty beyond that required by state law, it 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).

This rule also does not have tribal implications because it will not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000). This action also does not have Federalism implications because it does not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government, as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999). This action merely approves a state rule implementing a Federal standard, and does not alter the relationship or the distribution of power and responsibilities established in the Clean Air Act. This rule also is not subject to Executive Order 13045 “Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks” (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), because it is not economically significant.

In reviewing revisions to state operating permit programs submitted pursuant to Title V of the CAA, EPA will approve such revisions provided that they meet the criteria of the Clean Air Act and EPA's regulations codified at 40 CFR part 70. In this context, in the absence of a prior existing requirement for the State to use voluntary consensus standards (VCS), EPA has no authority to disapprove a Part 70 program revision for failure to use VCS. It would thus be inconsistent with applicable law for EPA, when it reviews a Part 70 program revision, to use VCS in place of a Part 70 program revision that otherwise satisfies the provisions of the Clean Air Act. Thus, the requirements of section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) do not apply. This rule does not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).

The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. section 801 et seq., as added by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of the rule in the Federal Register. A major rule cannot take effect until 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register. This action is not a “major rule” as defined by 5 U.S.C. section 804(2).

Under section 307(b)(1) of the Clean Air Act, petitions for judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by January 20, 2004. Filing a petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule does not affect the finality of this rule for the purposes of judicial review nor does it extend the time within which a petition for judicial review may be filed, and shall not postpone the effectiveness of such rule or action. This action may not be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2).)
