SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On August 21, 1981 (46 FR 42450), April 16, 1982 (47 FR 16327), May 7, 1982 (47 FR 19694), June 23, 1982 (47 FR 27068), March 27, 1984 (49 FR 11626), October 19, 1984 (49 FR 42450), October 26, 1992 (57 FR 48457), April 3, 1995 (60 FR 16799), June 27, 1997 (62 FR 34641), December 3, 1998 (63 FR 66758), August 19, 1999 (64 FR 45175), May 26, 2000 (65 FR 34101), August 4, 2000 (65 FR 47863), September 13, 2000 (65 FR 55193), September 19, 2000 (65 FR 56486), and May 24, 2001 (66 FR 28666), EPA published final rulemaking actions approving various sections of Arizona, California, and Nevada State Implementation Plans (SIP). These actions incorporated material by reference into 40 CFR 52.120, Identification of plan for Arizona, 40 CFR 52.220, Identification of plan for California, and 40 CFR 52.1470, Identification of plan for Nevada. The various clerical and typographical errors occurred when the material was incorporated by reference into the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). All of the errors are being corrected by this action. An explanation of each correction is listed below by State and date of publication.

Arizona

On June 27, 1997 at 62 FR 3464, EPA published a final rulemaking deleting certain rules from the SIP. The codified language for § 52.120, paragraph (c)(3)(i) referenced an incorrect date. The correct date is being inserted in this action.

On April 16, 1982 at 47 FR 16326, EPA published a final rulemaking approving Pima County Department of Environmental Quality rules into the SIP. During the printing of the CFR from the year 1992 to 1993, the Government Printing Office inadvertently omitted two lines of codified rules from § 52.120, paragraph (c)(38)(i)(A). This action correctly replaces the approved rules.

On October 19, 1984 at 49 FR 41026, EPA published a final rule approving certain rules into the Arizona SIP. The codified language at § 52.120, paragraph (c)(56)(i)(A) contained two typographical errors, one for Rule R9-3-515 and the other for Appendix 11. These typographical errors are being corrected in this action.

California

On August 19, 1999 at 64 FR 45175, EPA published a direct final rule approving the recission of rules from the Mojave Desert Air Quality Management District. The codified language for § 52.220, paragraph (c)(39)(ii)(G) referenced an incorrect date. The correct date is being inserted in this action.

On August 21, 1981 at 46 FR 42450, EPA published a final rulemaking approving the San Joaquin Valley Air Basin Nonattainment Area Plan (SJVABNAP). On May 7, 1982 at 47 FR 19694, EPA published an additional final rulemaking on the SJVABNAP. Both rulemakings added language to § 52.220, paragraph (c)(71), creating duplicate paragraphs. This action combines and revises the language for (c)(71).

On June 23, 1982 at 47 FR 27068, EPA published a final rulemaking approving Placer County Air Pollution Control District rules. The rules were improperly codified in § 52.220 because paragraph (c)(80)(i)(B) already existed. This action eliminates the duplicate paragraphs by renumbering the June 23, 1982 entry from to (B) to (E).

On October 26, 1992 at 57 FR 48457, EPA published a final rulemaking approving South Coast Air Quality Management District rules. The rules were codified in § 52.220, paragraph (c)(184)(i)(B)(2), creating duplicate paragraphs. This action eliminates the duplicate paragraphs by renumbering that entry from to (2) to (10).

On April 3, 1995 at 60 FR 16799, EPA published a direct final rule approving Bay Area Air Quality Management District rules. The codified language at § 52.220, paragraph (c)(202)(i)(A) incorrectly lists the entire Rule 2-1. The April 3, 1995 Federal Register clearly states that only Section 429 of Rule 2.1 is being approved. This action corrects the entry for paragraph (c)(202)(i)(A) to read Rule 2-1-249.

On June 27, 1997 at 62 FR 34641, EPA published a final rule deleting certain rules from the California SIP. The codified language for Ventura County Air Pollution Control District at § 52.220, paragraph (c)(35)(iii)(C) and paragraph (c)(51)(xx)(B) contained typographical errors. The typographical errors are being corrected in this action.

On December 3, 1998 at 63 FR 66758, EPA published a final rule approving Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control rules. The codified language at § 52.220, paragraph (c)(225)(i)(F) was inadvertently omitted. The action correctly adds Santa Barbara Air Pollution Control District to paragraph (c)(225)(i)(F).

On May 26, 2000 at 65 FR 34101, EPA published a final rule approving Bay Area Air Quality Management District rules. The codified language at § 52.220, paragraph (c)(248)(i)(F) was inadvertently omitted. The action correctly adds Bay Area Air Quality Start Printed Page 2510Management District to paragraph (c)(248)(i)(F).

On December 19, 2000 at 65 FR 79314, EPA published a Final Interim Approval of an Operating Permits Program for the Antelope Valley Air Pollution Control District (AVAPCD). The Final Interim Approval created amendments to § 52.220, paragraph (c)(262)(i)(E)(1), which expired on January 11, 2003. On May 24, 2001 at 66 FR 28666, EPA published a direct final rule approving AVAPCD Rule 1171. The amendments to § 52.220, paragraph (c)(262)(i)(E)(2) were not codified into the CFR. This action codifies Rule 1171 and renumbers the paragraph in § 52.220, to paragraph (c)(262)(i)(E)(1) because the previous entry has expired.

On August 4, 2000 at 65 FR 47863, EPA published a final rule correcting an amendment to the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District Rule 464 at § 52.220, paragraph (c)(263)(i)(C)(1). Because of inaccurate amendatory instruction, the paragraph was not corrected. This action corrects the entry for § 52.220, paragraph (c)(263)(i)(C)(1).

On September 13, 2000 at 65 FR 55193, EPA published a final rule approving San Joaquin Valley Unified Air Pollution Control District Rule 4653. Rule 4653 was erroneously codified in § 52.220, paragraph (c)(266)(i)(B)(2) in lieu of (c)(266)(i)(B)(1). This action corrects the codification.

On September 19, 2000 at 65 FR 56486, EPA published a final rule approving Tehama County Air Pollution Control District rules. A typographical error was inadvertently added to the entry for § 52.220, paragraph (c)(263)(i)(D)(1). This action will correct the typographical error.

Nevada

On March 27, 1984 at 49 FR 11628, EPA published a final rule approving Nevada State Department of Conservation and Natural Resources rules. Several typographical errors occurred during the transfer of the information from the Federal Register action to the CFR. This action will correct the typographical errors in § 52.1470, paragraph (c)(25)(i)(A).

Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

Under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993), this action is not a “significant regulatory action” and is therefore not subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget. In addition, this action does not impose any enforceable duty or contain any unfunded mandate as described in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-4), or require prior consultation with State officials as specified by Executive Order 12875 (58 FR 58093, October 28, 1993), or involve special consideration of environmental justice related issues as required by Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994).

Because this action is not subject to notice-and-comment requirements under the Administrative Procedure Act or any other statute, it is not subject to the provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.).

Under 5 U.S.C. 801(a)(1)(A) as added by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, EPA submitted 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 General Accounting Office prior to publication of this rule in today's Federal Register. This rule is not a “major rule” as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).
