ACTION:

Direct final rule.

SUMMARY:

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 (RCRA), as amended, authorizes the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to grant approval to any State to operate its underground storage tank program in the State in lieu of the federal program. The regulation 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 under sections 9005 and 9006 of RCRA subtitle I and other applicable statutory and regulatory provisions. This rule codifies the prior approval of Oregon's underground storage tank program and incorporates by reference appropriate provisions of state statutes and regulations.

DATES:

This regulation is effective June 29, 2012, unless EPA publishes a prior Federal Register document withdrawing this direct final rule. All comments on the codification of Oregon's underground storage tank program must be received by the close of business May 30, 2012. The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the regulations is approved by the Director of the Federal Register, as of June 29, 2012, in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552(a) and 1 CFR part 51.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

Section 9004 of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 (RCRA), as amended, 42 U.S.C. 6991c, authorizes the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to approve a State to operate its underground storage tank program in the State in lieu of the federal underground storage tank program. EPA published a Federal Register document announcing its decision to grant approval to Oregon on September 16, 2011, and approval was effective on September 16, 2011 (76 FR 57659).

EPA codifies its approval of State programs in 40 CFR part 282 and incorporates by reference therein those provisions of the State statutes and regulations that are subject to EPA's inspection and enforcement authorities under 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 Oregon's underground storage tank program. This codification reflects the State program in effect at the time EPA grants Oregon approval under section 9004, 42 U.S.C. 6991c, for its underground storage tank program. Notice and opportunity for comment were provided earlier on the Agency's decision to approve the Oregon program, and EPA is not now reopening that decision nor requesting comment on it.

This effort provides clear notice to the public of the scope of the approved program in each state. By codifying the approved Oregon program and by amending the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) whenever a new or different set of requirements is approved in Oregon, the status of federally-approved requirements of the Oregon program will be readily discernible. Only those provisions of the Oregon underground storage tank program EPA has approved will be incorporated by reference for enforcement purposes.

To codify EPA's approval of Oregon's underground storage tank program, EPA has added § 282.87 to Title 40 of the CFR. Section 282.87(d)(1)(i) incorporates by reference for enforcement purposes the State's statutes and regulations. Section 282.87 also references the Attorney General's Statement, Demonstration of Adequate Enforcement Procedures, the Program Description, and the Memorandum of Agreement, which are approved as part of the underground storage tank program under subtitle I of RCRA.

EPA retains the authority under sections 9003(h), 9005 and 9006 of subtitle I of RCRA, 42 U.S.C. 6991b(h), 6991d and 6991e, and other applicable statutory and regulatory provisions to undertake corrective actions, inspections and enforcement in approved States. With respect to such actions, EPA will rely on federal sanctions, federal inspection authorities, and federal procedures rather than the State authorized analogues to these provisions. Therefore, the approved Oregon enforcement authorities will not be incorporated by reference. Section 282.87 lists those approved Oregon authorities that would fall into this category.

The public also needs to be aware that some provisions of the State's underground storage tank program are not part of the federally-approved State program, because such provisions 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 enforcement in Part 282. Section 282.87 of the codification simply lists for reference and clarity the Oregon 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 implement and enforce such provisions.

B. Statutory and Executive Order Review

This final rule only applies to Oregon's UST Program requirements pursuant to RCRA Section 9004 and imposes no requirements other than those imposed by State law. It complies with applicable EOs and statutory provisions as follows:

1. Executive Order 12866

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has exempted this rule from its review under Executive Order 12866.

2. Paperwork Reduction Act

This action does not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., because this rule does not establish or modify any information or recordkeeping requirements for the regulated community and only seeks to authorize the pre-existing requirements under State law and imposes no additional requirements beyond those imposed by State law.

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 because the rule will only have the effect of authorizing pre-existing requirements under State law and imposes no additional requirements beyond those imposed by State law.

4. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

Because today's rulemaking codifies pre-existing requirements under Oregon state law and does not impose any additional enforceable duty beyond that required by Oregon 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

Executive Order 13132 does not apply to this rule because this final rule does not have Federalism implications. It will 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 various levels of government.

6. Executive Order 13175: Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments

Executive Order 13175 does not apply because this rule does 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). EPA retains its authority in Indian Country.

7. Executive Order 13045: Protection of Children From Environmental Health and Safety Risks

EPA interprets Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997) as applying only to those regulatory actions that concern health or safety risks, such that the analysis required under section 5-501 of the Executive Order has the potential to influence the regulation. This action is not subject to Executive Order 13045 because it will codify a state program.

8. Executive Order 13211: Actions That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use

This rule is not subject to Executive Order 13211 because it is not a “significant regulatory action” as defined under Executive Order 12866.

9. National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act

Section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (“NTTAA”), (15 U.S.C. 272), directs EPA to provide Congress, through OMB, explanations when the Agency decides not to use available and applicable voluntary consensus standards. This rulemaking does not involve technical standards. Therefore, the NTTAA does not apply.

10. Executive Order 12898: Federal Actions To Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low Income Populations

Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994) establishes Federal executive policy on environmental justice. Its main provision directs Federal agencies, to the greatest extent practicable and permitted by law, to make environmental justice part of their mission by identifying and addressing, as appropriate, disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental effects of their programs, policies, and activities on minority populations and low-income populations in the United States. EPA has determined that this rule will not have disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental effects on minority or low-income populations. This rule does not affect the level of protection provided to human health or the environment because this rule codifies pre-existing State rules which are no less stringent than existing Federal requirements.

11. Submission to Congress and the General Accounting Office

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 the rule in today's Federal Register. This rule is not a “major rule” as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).

Regional Administrator, Region 10.

For the reasons set forth in the preamble, 40 CFR part 282 is amended as follows:

PART 282—APPROVED UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANK PROGRAMS

1. The authority citation for part 282 continues to read as follows:

Authority: 42 U.S.C. 6912, 6991c, 6991d, and 6991e.

Subpart B—Approved State Programs

2. Add § 282.87 to subpart B to read as follows:

Oregon State-Administered Program.

(a) The State of Oregon is approved to administer and enforce an underground storage tank program in lieu of the federal program under 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 Oregon Department of Environmental Quality, was approved by EPA pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 6991c and Part 281 of this Chapter. EPA published the notice of final determination approving the Oregon underground storage tank program on September 16, 2011, and it became effective on that date.

(b) Oregon has primary responsibility for enforcing its underground storage tank program. However, EPA retains the authority to exercise its corrective action, inspection and enforcement authorities under sections 9003(h), 9005 and 9006 of subtitle I of RCRA, 42 U.S.C. 6991b(h), 6991d and 6991e, as well as its authority under other statutory and regulatory provisions.

(c) To retain program approval, Oregon must revise its approved program to adopt new changes to the federal subtitle I program which make it more stringent, in accordance with section 9004 of RCRA, 42 U.S.C. 6991c, and 40 CFR part 281, subpart E. If Oregon 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) Oregon has final approval for the following elements submitted to EPA in its program application as of September 16, 2011.

(1) State statutes and regulations. (i) The provisions cited in this paragraph are incorporated by reference as part of the underground storage tank program under subtitle I of RCRA, 42 U.S.C. 6991 et seq. with the approval of the Director of the Federal Register under 5 U.S.C. 552(a) and 1 CFR Part 51. To enforce any edition other than that specified in this section, the Environmental Protection Agency must publish notice of change in the Federal Register and the material must be available to the public.
