Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Direct final rule.
EPA is approving a revision to the Indiana State Implementation Plan (SIP) submitted by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) on November 24, 2010. The SIP revision consists of amendments to 326 Indiana Administrative Code (IAC) 8-2-1 and 326 IAC 8-2-9, the applicability sections for Indiana's miscellaneous metal and plastic parts surface coating rules. These rules are approvable because they satisfy the requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA) for volatile organic compound (VOC) reasonably available control technology (RACT) rules.
This direct final rule will be effective December 12, 2011, unless EPA receives adverse comments by November 14, 2011. If adverse comments are received, EPA will publish a timely withdrawal of the direct final rule in the Federal Register informing the public that the rule will not take effect.

II. What action is EPA taking?
III. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews
On February 24, 2010, at 75 FR 8246, EPA approved amendments to 326 IAC 8 into the Indiana SIP to address VOC RACT requirements for the Lake and Porter County portion of the Chicago-Gary-Lake County, IL-IN, 8-hour ozone nonattainment area. These amendments added limits for miscellaneous metal and plastic parts surface coating operations, consistent with EPA's 2008 Control Technique Guideline document for Miscellaneous Metal and Plastic Parts Coating operations. The State's intention was to cover operations located only in Lake and Porter Counties, with the limits specified in Subsection 326 IAC 8-2-9(d). However, the applicability section, 326 IAC 8-2-9(a) did not clearly state that only Lake and Porter County sources were subject to the additional requirements.
In its November 24, 2010, submittal to EPA, IDEM requested that EPA approve amendments to 326 IAC 8-2-1 and 326 IAC 8-2-9 into the state SIP. Specifically, IDEM requested that we approve amendments to the applicability provisions in 326 IAC 8-2-9(a) to clarify that the new VOC limits in subsection (d) apply only to miscellaneous metal and plastic parts surface coating operations in Lake and Porter Counties. IDEM also requested that we approve amendments to the general applicability provisions at 326 IAC 8-2-1(a)(3) and 326 IAC 8-2-1(a)(4) to clarify that the older (in Indiana's SIP prior to February 24, 2010) surface coating requirements in 326 IAC 8-2 continue to apply to miscellaneous metal coating operations outside of Lake and Porter Counties. The revised rules were adopted by the Indiana Air Pollution Control Board on September 1, 2010, and became effective on November 19, 2010. No public comments were received at the hearing held by the state on September 1, 2010.
II. What action is EPA taking?
EPA is approving the state's request to amend the general applicability provisions at 326 IAC 8-2-1(a)(3) and (a)(4) and the applicability provisions in 326 IAC 8-2-9(a).
We are publishing this action without prior proposal because we view this as a noncontroversial amendment and anticipate no adverse comments. However, in the proposed rules section of this Federal Register publication, we are publishing a separate document that will serve as the proposal to approve the state plan if relevant adverse written comments are filed. This rule will be effective December 12, 2011 without further notice unless we receive relevant adverse written comments by November 14, 2011. If we receive such comments, we will withdraw this action before the effective date by publishing a subsequent document that will withdraw the final action. All public comments received will then be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on the proposed action. EPA will not institute a second comment period. Any parties interested in commenting on this action should do so at this time. Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those provisions of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment. If we do not receive any comments, this action will be effective December 12, 2011.
III. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews
Under the CAA, the Administrator is required to approve a SIP submission that complies with the provisions of the CAA and applicable Federal regulations. 42 U.S.C. 7410(k); 40 CFR 52.02(a). Thus, in reviewing SIP submissions, EPA's role is to approve state choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the CAA. Accordingly, this action merely approves state law as meeting Federal requirements and does not impose additional requirements beyond those imposed by state law. For that reason, this action:
- Is not a “significant regulatory action” subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993);
- Does not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.);
- Is certified as not having a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.);
- Does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or uniquely Start Printed Page 63551affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-4);
- Does not have Federalism implications as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999);
- Is not an economically significant regulatory action based on health or safety risks subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997);
- Is not a significant regulatory action subject to Executive Order 13211 (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001);
- Is not subject to requirements of Section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) because application of those requirements would be inconsistent with the CAA; and
- Does not provide EPA with the discretionary authority to address, as appropriate, disproportionate human health or environmental effects, using practicable and legally permissible methods, under Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994).
In addition, this rule does not have tribal implications as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), because the SIP is not approved to apply in Indian country located in the state, and EPA notes that it will not impose substantial direct costs on tribal governments or preempt tribal law.
The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 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 action 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. 804(2).
Under section 307(b)(1) of the CAA, petitions for judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by December 12, 2011. Filing a petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule does not affect the finality of this action 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. Parties with objections to this direct final rule are encouraged to file a comment in response to the parallel notice of proposed rulemaking for this action published in the proposed rules section of today's Federal Register, rather than file an immediate petition for judicial review of this direct final rule, so that EPA can withdraw this direct final rule and address the comment in the proposed rulemaking. This action may not be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2).)Start List of Subjects
