I. Background Information

This Notice is to provide a technical correction to the final regulation published at 75 FR 3392, January 21, 2010. The final regulations that are the subject to these corrections are effective on March 22 and affect the State of Alaska Administrative Code (“ACC”) Air Emission User Fee provision in 18 AAC 50.410 as incorporated into 40 CFR Part 55. Alaska revised the Air Emission User Fee provision in 18 AAC 50.410 to extend the date through which the current emission fee rates apply to stationary sources permitted under AS 46.14 from June 30, 2009 to June 30, 2010 and clarified that the fee applies annually. This correction relates only to the air emission user fee provision in 18 AAC 50.410.

II. Need for Correction

As published, the final regulations contained an error which may prove to be misleading and needs to be clarified. The direct final rule in 75 FR 3392 inadvertently stated that Appendix A to 40 CFR part 55 was amended by “revising” Article 4 of paragraph (a)(1) under the heading “Alaska”. The direct final rule should have said that at Appendix A to 40 CFR part 55 was amended by “adding” a provision within Article 4 of paragraph (a)(1) under the heading “Alaska”.

Start Amendment Part

Accordingly, the following correction is made to the final rule published January 21, 2010 (
