Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Immediate final rule.

SUMMARY:

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976, as amended (RCRA), authorizes EPA to grant approval to States to operate their underground storage tank programs in lieu of the Federal program. Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (40 CFR) part 282 codifies EPA's decision to approve State programs and incorporates by reference those provisions of the State statutes and regulations that will be subject to EPA's inspection and enforcement authorities in accordance with sections 9005 and 9006 of RCRA Subtitle I and other applicable statutory and regulatory provisions. This rule codifies in 40 CFR part 282 the prior approval of the State of Minnesota's underground storage tank program and incorporates by reference appropriate provisions of State statutes and regulations.

DATES:

This regulation is effective July 25, 2005, unless EPA publishes a prior Federal Register notice withdrawing this immediate final rule. All comments on the codification of Minnesota's underground storage tank program must be received by the close of business June 23, 2005. The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the regulations is approved by the Director of the Federal Register, as of July 25, 2005, in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552(a).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

Section 9004 of RCRA, 42 U.S.C. 6991c, allows the EPA to approve a State underground storage tank program to operate in the State in lieu of the Federal underground storage tank program. EPA published a rule in the Federal Register granting approval to Minnesota on November 30, 2001, and approval was effective on December 31, 2001 (66 FR 59713).

EPA codifies its approval of a State program in 40 CFR part 282 and incorporates by reference therein the State's statutes and regulations that make up the approved program which is federally-enforceable in accordance with sections 9005 and 9006 of Subtitle I of RCRA, 42 U.S.C. 6991d and 6991e, and other applicable statutory and regulatory provisions. Today's rulemaking codifies EPA's approval of Minnesota's underground storage tank program. This codification reflects the State program in effect at the time EPA granted Minnesota's approval, in accordance with section 9004(a), 42 U.S.C. 6991c(a), for its underground storage tank program. Notice and opportunity for comment were provided earlier on the Agency's decision to approve the Minnesota program, and EPA is not now reopening that decision nor requesting comment on it.

To codify EPA's approval of Minnesota's underground storage tank program, EPA has added section 282.73 to title 40 of the CFR. 40 CFR 282.73(d)(1)(i) incorporates by reference the State's statutes and regulations that make up the approved program which is federally-enforceable. 40 CFR 282.73 also references the Attorney General's Statement, the Demonstration of Adequate Enforcement Procedures, the Program Description, and the Memorandum of Agreement, which were evaluated as part of the approval process of the underground storage tank program, in accordance with Subtitle I of RCRA.

EPA retains the authority in accordance with sections 9005 and 9006 of Subtitle I of RCRA, 42 U.S.C. 6991d and 6991e, and other applicable statutory and regulatory provisions, to undertake inspections and enforcement actions in approved States. With respect to such an enforcement action, EPA will rely on Federal sanctions, Federal inspection authorities, and Federal procedures rather than the State analogues to these provisions. Therefore, Minnesota's inspection and enforcement authorities are not incorporated by reference, nor are they part of Minnesota's approved state program which operates in lieu of the Federal program. These authorities, however, are listed in 40 CFR 282.73(d)(1)(ii) for informational purposes, and also because EPA considered them in determining the adequacy of Minnesota's enforcement authority. Minnesota's authority to inspect and enforce the State's underground storage tank requirements continues to operate independently under State law.

Some provisions of the State's underground storage tank program are not part of the federally-approved State program. These non-approved provisions are not part of the RCRA Subtitle I program because they are “broader in scope” than Subtitle I of RCRA. See 40 CFR 281.12(a)(3)(ii). As a result, State provisions which are “broader in scope” than the Federal program are not incorporated by reference for purposes of Federal enforcement in 40 CFR part 282. Section 282.73(d)(1)(iii) of the codification simply lists for reference and clarity the Minnesota statutory and regulatory provisions which are “broader in scope” than the Federal program and which are not, therefore, part of the approved program being codified today. “Broader in scope” provisions cannot be enforced by EPA; the State, however, will continue to enforce such provisions.

When the phrases, “insofar” and “except insofar,” are used in Appendix A (which provides an informational listing of the state requirements incorporated by reference in Part 282 of the Code of Federal Regulations), refer to the binders in the codification materials for specifics as to any words, phrases, sentences, paragraphs, or subsections that are “crossed-out” in the binders. These crossed-out materials are not incorporated by reference in Part 282 of the Code of Federal Regulations.

Statutory and Executive Order Reviews: This rule only codifies EPA-authorized underground storage tank program requirements pursuant to RCRA section 9004 and imposes no requirements other than those imposed by State law (see Supplementary Information). Therefore, this rule complies with applicable executive orders and statutory provisions as follows. 1. Executive Order 12866: Regulatory Planning Review—The Office of Management and Budget has exempted this rule from its review under Executive Order (EO) 12866. 2. Paperwork Reduction Act—This rule does not impose an information collection burden under the Paperwork Reduction Act. 3. Regulatory Flexibility Act—After considering the economic impacts of today's rule on small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act, I certify that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. 4. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act—Because this rule codifies 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. 5. Executive Order 13132: Federalism—EO 13132 does not apply to this rule because it will not have federalism implications (i.e., 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). 6. Executive Order 13175: Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments—EO 13175 does not apply to this rule because it will not have tribal implications (i.e., substantial direct effects 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). 7. Executive Order 13045: Protection of Children from Environmental Health & Safety Risks—This rule is not subject to EO 13045 because it is not economically significant and it is not based on health or safety risks. 8. Executive Order 13211: Actions that Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use—This rule is not subject to EO 13211 because it is not a significant regulatory action as defined in EO 12866. 9. National Technology Transfer And Advancement Act—EPA has previously addressed the non-applicability of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act in its final approval of this state program. See 66 FR 59713. Section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act does not apply to this rule. 10. Congressional Review Act—EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other information required by the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.) to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Start Printed Page 29630Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication 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. 804(2). Nevertheless, to allow time for public comment, this action will be effective on July 25, 2005.

Subpart B—Approved State Programs

Start Amendment Part

2. Subpart B is amended by adding § 282.73 to read as follows:

End Amendment Part
Minnesota State-Administered Program.

(a) The State of Minnesota's underground storage tank program is approved in lieu of the Federal program in accordance with Subtitle I of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 (RCRA), as amended, 42 U.S.C. 6991 et seq. The State's program, as administered by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, was approved by EPA pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 6991c and part 281 of this chapter. EPA approved the Minnesota underground storage tank program on November 30, 2001, and approval was effective on December 31, 2001.

(b) Minnesota has primary responsibility for enforcing its underground storage tank program. However, EPA retains the authority to exercise its inspection and enforcement authorities in accordance with sections 9005 and 9006 of Subtitle I of RCRA, 42 U.S.C. 6991d and 6991e, regardless of whether the State has taken its own actions, as well as in accordance with other statutory and regulatory provisions.

(c) To retain program approval, Minnesota must revise its approved program to adopt new changes to the Federal Subtitle I program that make it more stringent, in accordance with section 9004 of RCRA, 42 U.S.C. 6991c, and 40 CFR part 281, subpart E. If Minnesota obtains approval for the revised requirements pursuant to section 9004 of RCRA, 42 U.S.C. 6991c, the newly approved statutory and regulatory provisions will be added to this subpart and notice of any change will be published in the Federal Register.

(d) Minnesota has final approval for the following elements submitted to EPA in the State's program application for final approval. On November 30, 2001, EPA published a rule approving the State's program in the Federal Register, 66 FR 59713. That approval became effective on December 31, 2001.
