ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 52

[EPA-R03-OAR-2012-0955; FRL-9819-6]


Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; 
Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and 
West Virginia; Removal of Obsolete Regulations and Updates to Citations 
to State Regulations Due to Recodification

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Direct final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: EPA is taking direct final action to remove over fifty rules 
in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 40 CFR part 52 for 
Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, 
and West Virginia because they are unnecessary or obsolete. EPA is also 
taking direct final action to clarify regulations in 40 CFR part 52 to 
reflect updated citations of certain Virginia rules due to the 
Commonwealth's recodification of its regulations at the state level. 
These direct final actions make no substantive changes to these State 
Implementation Plans (SIPs) and impose no new requirements. In the 
proposed rules section of this Federal Register, EPA is also proposing 
to remove and clarify these regulations and is soliciting public 
comment. If adverse comments are received on the direct final rule, EPA 
will withdraw the portions of the final rule that triggered the 
comments. Any portions of the final rule for which no adverse or 
critical comment is received will become final after the designated 
period.

DATES: This rule is effective on August 5, 2013 without further notice, 
unless EPA receives adverse written comment by July 8, 2013. If EPA 
receives such comments, it will publish a timely withdrawal of that 
portion of the direct final rule in the Federal Register which is 
adversely commented upon, and inform the public that that portion of 
the rule will not take effect.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID Number EPA-

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

[[Page 33978]]

I. Introduction

    This action pertains to six subparts in 40 CFR part 52 for six 
states. Those six states are Delaware, the District of Columbia, 
Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia. EPA is removing 
rules from these states' subparts of 40 CFR part 52 because they 
pertain to state regulations that are outdated or legally obsolete in 
whole or in part. This action is being taken pursuant to Executive 
Order 13563--Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review. One aspect of 
this action involves an effort to reduce the number of pages in the CFR 
by identifying those rules in 40 CFR part 52 that are duplicative, 
outdated or obsolete. This action removes several rules from 40 CFR 
part 52 that no longer have any use or legal effect because they have 
been superseded by subsequently approved SIP revisions. This action 
also amends certain rules by revising incorrect or outdated state 
regulatory citations and state agencies' office addresses.
    One aspect of EPA's action, affecting all six states, removes 
historical information found in the ``Original Identification of plan'' 
sections in 40 CFR part 52. These paragraphs are no longer necessary 
because EPA has promulgated administrative rule actions to replace 
these paragraphs with summary tables. These summary tables describe the 
regulations, source-specific actions, and non-regulatory requirements 
which comprise the SIPs for the six states. Another aspect of EPA's 
action, affecting Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, 
Pennsylvania, and Virginia, removes rules pertaining to regulations 
that cross-reference the California Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) program 
in 40 CFR 51.120. These regulations have been replaced with EPA 
approvals of SIP revisions implementing a National Low Emission Vehicle 
(NLEV) program. Both of these actions are described in greater detail 
later in this document.

II. Removal of Obsolete or Unnecessary Rules and Clarifications to 
Certain Rules

    The following regulations include rules applicable on a state-
specific basis. EPA has reviewed these rules and found that they should 
be removed or clarified for the reasons set forth as follows:

A. Delaware

Section 52.422 Approval status.
    In paragraph 52.422(a), the second sentence describes EPA's 
approval of Delaware's ozone SIP under the requirements of the 1977 
Clean Air Act (CAA). This sentence is being removed because EPA has 
subsequently approved Delaware SIP revisions for the 1-hour and 8-hour 
national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for ozone under the 
requirements of the 1990 CAA. See 40 CFR 52.420(c) and (e).
    Paragraph 52.422(b) refers to a commitment for Delaware to adopt a 
Federal clean fuel fleet program or alternative substitute. This 
paragraph is being removed because the Federal clean fuel fleet program 
is no longer a SIP requirement.
Section 52.432 Significant deterioration of air quality.
    Paragraph 52.432(a) is obsolete because Delaware Regulation 1125 
for its Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) permitting 
program has been approved into the Delaware SIP at section 52.420(c). 
Paragraph 52.432(b) is partially redundant because the reference to 40 
CFR 52.21(l)(2) is a duplication of the regulatory requirements of 
Delaware Regulation 1125, Section 3.10 which has been approved at 
section 52.420(c). The first sentence of paragraph 52.423(c) is 
obsolete because Delaware's PSD program is a SIP-approved program under 
40 CFR part 51 and not a delegated program of the Federal PSD 
regulations found at 40 CFR 52.21. The last sentence of paragraph 
52.423(c) is being revised to update the address of the office of the 
Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control 
(DNREC). Therefore, paragraph 52.432(a) is being removed, while 
paragraphs 52.432(b) and (c) are being revised.
Section 52.465 Original identification of plan section.
    Paragraphs 52.465(b) and (c) of this section, originally designated 
as 40 CFR 52.420(b) and (c), contains historical information only about 
EPA's approval actions for the Delaware SIP which occurred between May 
31, 1972 and July 1, 1998. On December 7, 1998 (63 FR 67407), EPA 
reorganized the Identification of plan section (section 52.420) for 
subpart I by listing and summarizing Delaware's currently approved SIP 
requirements in paragraphs 52.420(a) through (e). Paragraphs 52.465(b) 
and (c) are being removed because EPA has determined that it is no 
longer necessary to codify the information found in these paragraphs. 
Paragraph 52.465(a) is being amended to state that this historical 
information will continue to be made available in the CFR annual 
editions, Title 40 part 52 (years 1999 through 2012). These annual 
editions are available on line at the following url address: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/browse/collectionCfr.action?collectionCode=CFR.

B. District of Columbia

Section 52.472 Approval status.
    Section 52.472(b) refers to transportation control measures (TCMs) 
which EPA had promulgated as part of the District's 1973 SIP revisions 
for photochemical oxidants and carbon monoxide. This paragraph is being 
removed because it is obsolete. The 1990 CAA revised TCM requirements. 
The TCMs that currently are part of the SIP were approved by EPA on 
September 20, 2011 (76 FR 58116). See 40 CFR 52.470(e). Section 
52.472(f) was added as part of EPA's disapproval of the District's 
nonattainment New Source Review (NSR) program on March 24, 1995 (60 FR 
15483). This paragraph is being removed because it is obsolete. The 
District has a fully approved Nonattainment NSR program (July 31, 1997, 
62 FR 40937, as amended on April 16, 2004, 69 FR 77647).
Section 52.473 Conditional approval.
    On April 17, 2003, (68 FR 19106), EPA conditionally approved the 
District's ozone nonattainment area SIP for the Metropolitan 
Washington, DC area. This section is being removed because on April 15, 
2004 (69 FR 19937), 40 CFR 52.473 was stayed indefinitely and is no 
longer necessary to be codified in this subpart.
Section 52.479 Source surveillance.
    On December 6, 1973 (38 FR 33701), EPA added paragraph 52.479(b) to 
state that the carpool locator measure of the District's TCM SIP was 
not approved. This paragraph is obsolete because this TCM is no longer 
a control strategy required by the 1990 CAA. The TCMs that currently 
are part of the SIP were approved by EPA on September 20, 2011 (76 FR 
58116). Because paragraph 52.479(a) is already reserved, and there are 
no other paragraphs in Section 52.479, the entire section is being 
removed.
Section 52.515 Original identification of plan section.
    Paragraphs 52.515(b) and (c) of this section, originally designated 
as 40 CFR 52.470(b) and (c), contains historical information only about 
EPA's approval actions for the District of Columbia SIP which occurred 
between May 31, 1972 and July 1, 1998. On December 7, 1998 (63 FR 
67407), EPA reorganized the Identification of plan section (section 
52.470) for subpart J by listing and summarizing the District's 
currently approved SIP requirements in

[[Page 33979]]

paragraphs 52.470(a) through (e). Paragraphs 52.515 (b) and (c) are 
being removed because EPA has determined that it is no longer necessary 
to codify the information found in these paragraphs. Paragraph 
52.515(a) is being amended to state that this historical information 
will continue to be made available in the CFR annual editions, Title 40 
part 52 (years 1999 through 2012). These annual editions are available 
on line at the following url address: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/browse/collectionCfr.action?collectionCode=CFR.

C. Maryland

Section 52.1072 Conditional approval.
    On April 17, 2003, (68 FR 19106), EPA conditionally approved 
Maryland's ozone nonattainment area SIP for the Metropolitan Washington 
DC area. This section is being removed because on April 15, 2004 (69 FR 
19937), 40 CFR 52.1072 was stayed indefinitely and is no longer 
necessary to be codified in this subpart.
Section 52.1073 Approval status.
    On August 12, 1980 (45 FR 53460), paragraph 52.1073(b) was added to 
describe EPA's approval, with certain exceptions, of Maryland's January 
19, 1979 plan for attaining and maintaining the NAAQS under Section 110 
and for meeting the requirements of part D, Title 1, of the 1977 CAA. 
This paragraph also stated, ``continued satisfaction of the 
requirements of part D for the ozone portion of the SIP depends on the 
adoption and submittal of reasonably available control technology 
(RACT) requirements by July 1, 1980 for the sources covered by control 
technique guidelines (CTGs) issued between January 1978 and January 
1979 and adoption and submittal by each subsequent January of 
additional RACT requirements for sources covered by CTGs issued by the 
previous January.'' This paragraph is obsolete. It is being removed 
because all RACT and CTG requirements under the 1977 CAA have been met 
and the current ozone plan is subject to the requirements of the 1990 
CAA. See 40 CFR 52.1070(c).
    Paragraph 52.1073(c) describes EPA's approval of Code of Maryland 
Air Regulations (COMAR) 26.11.13.06. This paragraph is obsolete and is 
being removed. EPA had added this paragraph as part of a final 
rulemaking action published on May 24, 1991 (56 FR 23804) at 40 CFR 
52.1070(c)(88). Maryland repealed Regulation 26.11.13.06, effective 
October 26, 1992. On November 13, 1992, Maryland submitted a SIP 
revision to EPA requesting the removal of Regulation 26.11.13.06. EPA 
approved that SIP revision on June 10, 1994 (59 FR 29957).
    Paragraph 52.1073(d) refers to a commitment for Maryland to adopt a 
Federal clean fuel fleet program or alternative substitute. This 
paragraph is being removed. This paragraph is obsolete because the 
Federal clean fuel fleet program is no longer a SIP requirement.
Section 52.1074 Legal authority.
    This section was added to state that Maryland lacked the necessary 
legal authority to prohibit the disclosure of emission data to the 
public. EPA has deemed this section to be obsolete and it is being 
removed. This section should have been removed when EPA approved a 
revision to COMAR 26.11.01.05 on May 28, 2002 (67 FR 36810).
Section 52.1077 Source surveillance.
    This section was added to state that the Maryland SIP did not 
provide specific procedures for stationary sources to be periodically 
tested. This section is obsolete and is being removed. This section 
should have been removed as a result of EPA's approval of a revision to 
COMAR 26.11.01.05 on May 28, 2002 (67 FR 36810).
Section 52.1078 Extensions.
    In this section, EPA extended the deadline by which Maryland must 
incorporate mandatory testing of second generation On-board Diagnostics 
(OBD-II) equipped motor vehicles as part of its inspection and 
maintenance (I/M) program until July 1, 2002. This section is obsolete 
and is being removed because Maryland is now implementing the OBD II 
program as part of its SIP-approved I/M program.
Section 52.1100 Original identification of plan section.
    Paragraphs 52.1100(b) and (c) of this section, originally 
designated as 40 CFR 52.1070(b) and (c), contains historical 
information only about EPA's approval actions for the Maryland SIP 
which occurred between May 31, 1972 and November 31, 2004. On November 
29, 2004 (69 FR 69304), EPA reorganized the Identification of plan 
section (section 52.1070) for subpart V by listing and summarizing 
Maryland's currently approved SIP requirements in paragraphs 52.1070(a) 
through (e). Paragraphs 52.1100(b) and (c) are being removed because 
EPA has determined that it is no longer necessary to codify the 
information found in these paragraphs. Paragraph 52.1100(a) is being 
amended to state that this historical information will continue to be 
made available in the CFR annual editions, Title 40 part 52 (years 2005 
through 2012). These annual editions are available on line at the 
following url address: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/browse/collectionCfr.action?collectionCode=CFR.
Section 52.1118 Approval of bubbles in nonattainment areas lacking 
approved demonstrations: State assurances.
    This section was added in order to secure approval of a bubble (or 
plantwide) control strategy for the American Cyanamid facility in Havre 
de Grace, Maryland. This section is obsolete and is being removed 
because the bubble for the American Cyanamid Facility was removed from 
the Maryland SIP, effective November 24, 2006 (October 24, 2006, 71 FR 
62210).

D. Pennsylvania

Section 52.2022 Extensions.
    Between May 31, 1972 and February 26, 1985, EPA granted 
Pennsylvania a series of extensions to attain and maintain the NAAQS 
for SO2, particulate matter (PM), photochemical oxidants, 
carbon monoxide, and ozone. This entire section is obsolete and is 
being removed. The latest of these extended dates was December 31, 
1987. All of these attainment dates have been superseded by the 1990 
CAA and by revised attainment dates for ozone, PM, and SO2 
in response to the issuance of revised NAAQS.
Section 52.2023 Approval status.
    Paragraph 52.2023(b) describes EPA's approval of Pennsylvania's 
plan for the attainment and maintenance of the NAAQS and states that 
the plan satisfies all requirements of part D, Title 1, of the 1977 
CAA, with certain exceptions. Pennsylvania subsequently remedied all of 
the deficiencies which had been codified in paragraphs 52.2033(c) 
through (k). See 40 CFR 52.2020(c)(1) and (e)(1). Therefore, EPA is 
revising paragraph 52.2033(b) to remove the words ``except as noted 
below.''
    Paragraph 52.2023(d) describes EPA's limited approval and limited 
disapproval action on Pennsylvania's Stage II vapor recovery 
regulation. This paragraph is obsolete and is being removed because EPA 
fully approved Pennsylvania's Stage II regulations in subsequent final 
actions published on December 13, 1995 (60 FR 63937, 63940).
    Paragraph 52.2023(e) describes EPA's April 30, 1998 disapproval (63 
FR 23668) of Pennsylvania's April 19, 1995 RACT determination for 
nitrogen oxides

[[Page 33980]]

(NOX) at the Pennsylvania Power Company's New Castle plant 
located in Lawrence County, Pennsylvania (Source No. 37-023). This 
paragraph is obsolete and is being removed. On June 26, 2002 (67 FR 
43002), EPA approved Pennsylvania's amended NOX RACT 
determination for this source. See 40 CFR 52.2020(d)(1).
    Paragraph 52.2023(j) describes a disapproval action taken by EPA 
with regard to Pennsylvania's enhanced I/M program. This paragraph is 
obsolete and is being removed. EPA approved Pennsylvania's enhanced I/M 
program on June 17, 1999 (64 FR 32411). EPA subsequently approved 
revisions to Pennsylvania's enhanced I/M program on October 6, 2005 (70 
FR 58313). Pennsylvania is implementing a fully approved enhanced I/M 
program.
Section 52.2024 General requirements.
    Section 52.2024(a) describes EPA's determination that Pennsylvania 
had inadequate legal authority to provide for the public availability 
of emissions data as required by section 110(a)(2)(F) of the CAA and 40 
CFR 51.116. In section 52.2024, EPA promulgated a series of measures 
designed to ensure public access to emissions data. This entire section 
is obsolete and is being removed. It should have been removed on 
January 12, 1995 (60 FR 2881) when EPA approved Pennsylvania Regulation 
135.21 pertaining to emissions statements.
Section 52.2025 Legal authority.
    This section describes a SIP deficiency in Philadelphia's Home Rule 
Charter provision regarding the public right to inspection. On November 
28, 1975 (40 FR 55326, 55333), EPA determined that this provision 
could, in some circumstances, prohibit the disclosure of emission data 
to the public. However, this section is now obsolete and is being 
removed. EPA approved Pennsylvania Regulation 135.21 and determined it 
would apply to the City of Philadelphia as well. See 40 CFR 
52.2020(c)(1) and (e)(1).
Sections 52.2030 Source surveillance and 52.2032 Intergovernmental 
cooperation.
    Sections 52.2030 and 52.2032 describe inadequacies which EPA 
identified regarding the implementation of Pennsylvania's TCMs required 
under the 1977 CAA. These sections are obsolete and are being removed. 
EPA has since determined that Pennsylvania has met all of its TCM 
requirements prescribed by the 1977 and 1990 CAA.
Section 52.2033 Control strategy: Sulfur oxides.
    Paragraph 52.2033(a) describes EPA's approval action of the 
SO2 control strategy for Allegheny County under the 
requirements of the 1970 CAA. This paragraph is obsolete and is being 
removed. It has been superseded by EPA's approval of the SO2 
attainment plan for Allegheny County under the requirements of the 1990 
CAA at paragraph 52.2033(c).
Section 52.2034 Attainment dates for national standards.
    This section states that Pennsylvania had not submitted a plan for 
Northumberland County, Snyder County, and Allegheny County, as of 
December 31, 1979, providing for the attainment and maintenance of the 
secondary NAAQS for SO2. This section is obsolete and is 
being removed. On November 12, 1985 (50 FR 46649), EPA determined that 
the SO2 nonattainment designations for both the primary and 
secondary NAAQS in both Northumberland and Snyder Counties were based 
on a modeling error, and that all other criteria for redesignating 
nonattainment areas to attainment had been met. Therefore, EPA 
redesignated both counties to attainment. On July 21, 2004 (69 FR 
43522), EPA approved the modeled attainment demonstration and 
maintenance plan to attain and maintain the primary and secondary 
SO2 NAAQS in the Hazelwood and Monongahela River Valley 
areas of Allegheny County.
Section 52.2037 Control strategy plans for attainment and rate-of-
progress: Ozone.
    Paragraph 52.2037(a) describes EPA's conditional approval of 
Pennsylvania's 1979 carbon monoxide and ozone plans. The conditional 
approval was based upon Pennsylvania's commitment to implement a 
commuter rail project or a substitute TCM which would produce 
equivalent emission reductions. This paragraph is obsolete and is being 
removed. EPA has since determined that Pennsylvania has met all of its 
TCM requirements prescribed by the 1990 CAA.
Section 52.2055 Review of new sources and modifications.
    Section 52.2055 is obsolete and is being removed. It was created to 
highlight disapproved portions of the PSD and nonattainment NSR 
programs. Pennsylvania has a fully approved PSD program and 
nonattainment NSR program in accordance with current CAA and 40 CFR 
part 51 requirements.
Section 52.2058 Prevention of significant air quality deterioration.
    Paragraph 52.2058(a) is being retained as the SIP status described 
in this paragraph is still current. However, the address for the office 
of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection found in 
this paragraph is obsolete and is being updated.
Section 52.2059 Control strategy: Particulate matter.
    Paragraph 52.2059(a) was added to the CFR on May 20, 1980 (45 FR 
33628). It describes a commitment by Pennsylvania to undertake a 
comprehensive program to investigate non-traditional sources, 
industrial process fugitive PM emissions, alternative control measures, 
and to develop and implement an effective control program to attain the 
primary and secondary NAAQS for total suspended particulates (TSP). 
This paragraph is obsolete and is being removed. On July 1, 1987 (52 FR 
24634), EPA revoked the NAAQS for TSP and promulgated a new NAAQS for 
PM with a diameter of ten microns or less (PM10) in its 
place. Effective October 14, 2003 (68 FR 53515, September 11, 2003), 
the entire Commonwealth of Pennsylvania was designated either 
attainment or unclassified for the PM10 NAAQS. See 40 CFR 
81.339.
Section 52.2063 Original identification of plan section.
    Paragraphs 52.2063(b) and (c) of this section, originally 
designated as 40 CFR 52.2020(b) and (c), contains historical 
information only about EPA's approval actions for the Pennsylvania SIP, 
including Allegheny County and the City of Philadelphia, which occurred 
between May 31, 1972 and February 10, 2005. On February 25, 2005 (70 FR 
9450), EPA reorganized the Identification of plan section (section 
52.2020) for subpart NN by listing and summarizing Pennsylvania's 
(including Allegheny and Philadelphia Counties) currently approved SIP 
requirements in paragraphs 52.2020(a) through (e). Paragraphs 
52.2063(b) and (c) are being removed because EPA has determined that it 
is no longer necessary to codify the information found in these 
paragraphs. Paragraph 52.2063(a) is being amended to state that this 
historical information will continue to be made available in the CFR 
annual editions, Title 40 part 52 (years 2005 through 2012). These 
annual editions are available on line at the following url address: 
http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/

E. Virginia

Section 52.2423 Approval status.
    The second, third, and fourth sentences of paragraph 52.2423(a) 
state that Virginia's open burning regulations have been submitted for 
information purposes only and are not to be considered as a control 
strategy. These sentences are obsolete and are being removed. Open 
burning has been a control strategy in the Virginia SIP since March 12, 
1997 (62 FR 11332). See 40 CFR 52.2420(c).
    Paragraph 52.2423(d) states that a January 11, 1979 SIP submittal 
pertaining to Smyth County is not approved, pending a possible 
redesignation of the area to attainment status. The 1-hour ozone 
nonattainment area in Smyth County consisted of the portion of White 
Top Mountain above the 4,500 foot elevation. This paragraph is obsolete 
and is being removed. On April 30, 2004 (69 FR 23858, 23942), all of 
Smyth County was designated attainment of the 8-hour ozone NAAQS. On 
August 3, 2005 (70 FR 44470, 44478), the 1-hour ozone NAAQS was revoked 
for the White Top Mountain area, effective June 15, 2005. On April 29, 
2008 (73 FR 23103), EPA approved the 8-hour ozone maintenance plan for 
Smyth County. See 40 CFR 52.2420(e).
    Paragraph 52.5423(e) describes the disapproval of section 4.55(b) 
of the Virginia regulations because the regulation was not adequately 
enforceable. This paragraph is obsolete, and is being removed. Section 
4.55(b) was never approved as part of the Virginia SIP, and no longer 
exists as a State regulation.
    Paragraph 52.2423(f) describes a situation where a Virginia opacity 
regulation cited as section 9 VAC 5-40-20.A.3 is not considered part of 
the applicable plan because it contradicts a previously approved 
section of the SIP. EPA's assessment is still current. However, in this 
action EPA is revising this paragraph to add a reference to the current 
State citation of this opacity regulation (9VAC5-40-20.A.4).
    Paragraph 52.2423(g) describes the exclusion of section 4.31(d)(3), 
a Virginia regulation pertaining to collection efficiency from the 
Virginia SIP. This paragraph is obsolete and is being removed because 
section 4.31(d)(3) of Virginia's regulation was never approved as a SIP 
requirement and no longer exists as a State regulation.
    Paragraph 52.2423(j) refers to a commitment for Virginia to adopt a 
Federal clean fuel fleet program or alternative substitute. This 
paragraph is obsolete and is being removed because the Federal clean 
fuel fleet program is no longer a SIP requirement.
    Paragraph 52.2423(k) describes EPA's disapproval of Virginia's 
November 12, 1992 redesignation request and maintenance plan for the 
Richmond moderate 1-hour ozone nonattainment area. EPA had disapproved 
this request and maintenance plan because of monitored ozone violations 
during the 1993 ozone season. This paragraph is now obsolete and is 
being removed. EPA subsequently approved the redesignation and 1-hour 
ozone maintenance plan for the Richmond area on November 17, 1997 (62 
FR 61237). See 40 CFR 52.2420(e).
    Paragraphs 52.2423(m) and (n) describe EPA's approval actions of 
Virginia regulations citing documents which Virginia has incorporated 
by reference. Virginia had submitted these actions in April 12, 1989 
and February 12, 1993, respectively. Since that time, Virginia has 
recodified its regulations. While EPA's approval actions are still 
current, EPA is amending paragraphs (m) and (n) to add references to 
the current citations of these approved State regulations.
Sections 52.2427 Source surveillance and 52.2433 Intergovernmental 
cooperation.
    Sections 52.2427 and 52.2433 describe inadequacies which EPA 
identified regarding the implementation of Virginia's TCMs required 
under the 1970 Clean Air Act. These sections are obsolete and are being 
removed. EPA has since determined that Virginia has met all of its TCM 
requirements prescribed by the 1990 CAA. The TCMs that currently are 
part of the SIP were approved by EPA on September 20, 2011 (76 FR 
58116). Virginia also has a fully approved enhanced I/M program for the 
Northern Virginia Area--9VAC5, Chapter 91, as codified in 40 CFR 
52.2420(c), last amended on April 22, 2008 (73 FR 21540).
Section 52.2436 Rules and regulations.
    This section describes the disapproval of section 4.55(b) of a 
Virginia regulation because the regulation was not adequately 
enforceable. See 40 CFR 52.2423(e). This section is obsolete and is 
being removed because section 4.55(b) no longer exists in Virginia's 
regulations.
Section 52.2450 Conditional approval.
    On August 30, 1995 (60 FR 45055), EPA conditionally approved a VOC 
RACT determination submitted by Virginia for the Philip Morris 
Manufacturing Center (No. 50076) located in Richmond, Virginia. This 
conditional approval is described in paragraph 52.2450(a). On October 
14, 1997 (62 FR 53242), EPA fully approved Virginia's revised VOC RACT 
determination for this same facility at 52.2420(c)(120) which is now 
codified at 40 CFR 52.2420(d). Therefore, paragraph 52.2450(a) is 
obsolete and is being removed.
    On April 17, 2003, (68 FR 19106), EPA conditionally approved and 
codified into paragraph 52.2450(b) Virginia's ozone nonattainment area 
SIP for the Metropolitan Washington DC area, which included the 1996-
1999 portion of the rate-of-progress plan. However, on April 15, 2004 
(69 FR 19937), 40 CFR 52.2450(b) was stayed indefinitely and is no 
longer necessary to be codified in this subpart. Therefore, paragraph 
52.2450(b) is obsolete and is being removed. Because paragraphs 
52.2450(c) through (f) are currently reserved, section 52.2450 is being 
removed in its entirety.
Section 52.2465 Original identification of plan section.
    Paragraphs 52.2465(b) and (c) of this section, originally 
designated as 40 CFR 52.2420(b) and (c), contains historical 
information only about EPA's approval actions for the Virginia SIP 
which occurred between May 31, 1972 and March 1, 2000. On April 21, 
2000 (65 FR 21315), EPA reorganized the Identification of plan section 
(section 52.2420) for subpart VV by listing and summarizing Virginia's 
currently approved SIP requirements in paragraphs 52.2420(a) through 
(e). Paragraphs 52.2465(b) and (c) are being removed because EPA has 
determined that it is no longer necessary to codify the information 
found in these paragraphs. Paragraph 52.2465(a) is being amended to 
state that this historical information will continue to be made 
available in the CFR annual editions, Title 40 part 52 (years 2000 
through 2012). These annual editions are available on line at the 
following url address: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/browse/collectionCfr.action?collectionCode=CFR.

F. West Virginia

Section 52.2522 Approval status.
    In paragraph 52.2522(a), EPA states that deletion of the provisions 
found in section 3.03(b) of Regulation X, adopted in 1972 and amended 
in 1978, has been approved, except for an SO2 emission 
limitation for the Rivesville Power Station. This paragraph is obsolete 
and

[[Page 33982]]

is being removed because section 3.3.b. of the current Regulation X 
(45CSR10) containing that SO2 emission limitation for the 
Rivesville Power Station was approved by EPA on June 3, 2003 (68 FR 
33002). See 40 CFR 52.2520(c).
    In paragraph 52.2522(b), EPA states that the interim limitation of 
5.12 lbs. of SO2 per million BTU for the Harrison power 
plant is approved until a permanent emission limitation is approved. 
This paragraph is obsolete and is being removed because Section 3.3.a. 
of the current Regulation X (45CSR10) includes a permanent 
SO2 emission limitation for the Harrison Power Plant which 
was approved as a SIP revision on June 3, 2003 (68 FR 33002). See 40 
CFR 52.2520(c).
    In paragraph 52.2522(c), EPA states that West Virginia's control 
strategy for attainment and maintenance of the secondary NAAQS for 
SO2 is not approved as it applies to the Mitchell Power 
Station located in Marshall County, and the Harrison Power Station 
located in Harrison County. This paragraph is obsolete and is being 
removed. Since 1978, when the part 81 attainment designations were 
first established under section 107 of the CAA, both Marshall and 
Harrison Counties have been designated attainment for the secondary 
NAAQS for SO2. EPA has also reviewed the ambient data of the 
secondary NAAQS for SO2 recorded since January 1996 for 
these counties, and has found no violations in either county.
    Paragraph 52.2522(h) describes a series of deficiencies to West 
Virginia minor new source permitting regulation (45CSR13) as submitted 
by West Virginia on August 26, 1994. This paragraph is obsolete and is 
being removed. On February 8, 2007 (72 FR 5932), EPA fully approved the 
provisions of West Virginia Regulation 45CSR13. See 40 CFR 52.2520(c). 
As a result, all of the deficiencies mentioned in paragraph 52.2522(h) 
have been corrected.
Section 52.2523 Attainment dates for national standards.
    Section 52.2523 states that The New Manchester and Grant 
Magisterial Districts in Hancock County are expected to attain and 
maintain the secondary NAAQS for SO2 as soon as the Sammis 
Power Plant, located in Jefferson County, Ohio, meets the 
SO2 emission limitations in the Ohio Implementation Plan. 
This section is obsolete and is being removed. EPA has subsequently 
determined that the Sammis Plant is currently meeting the Ohio SIP's 
emissions limits. In addition, on June 8, 2005 (70 FR 33364), EPA 
redesignated the New Manchester-Grant Magisterial District in part 81 
as ``Better than National Standards'' for the NAAQS for SO2 
and approved the maintenance plan, effective August 8, 2005. See 40 CFR 
81.349.
Section 52.2524 Compliance schedules.
    Sections 52.2524(a) and (b) were promulgated on June 20, 1973 (38 
FR 16144, 16170) and August 23, 1973 (38 FR 22736), respectively. At 
this time there were issues as to whether plants could comply with SIP 
approved emission standards for SO2 because of a lack of 
available low-sulfur coal and the availability of air pollution control 
equipment. These regulations set forth compliance schedules by which 
boilers or furnaces of more than 250 million Btu per hour heat input 
subject to the emission limitation requirements in West Virginia 
Regulation X must come into compliance with the applicable emission 
limitations for SO2. This section is obsolete. The dates 
listed in this compliance schedule have long since passed, and the SIP 
regulatory citation for West Virginia's SO2 control 
regulation has changed from Regulation X to Regulation 45CSR10. In 
addition, the emission limitations of Sections 3.01 and 3.03 (currently 
Section 45-10-3) have been revised. See November 9, 1978, 43 FR 52239 
and June 3, 2003, 68 FR 33002. EPA, West Virginia, and several power 
companies have also entered into Federal consent decrees that specify 
control strategies, including flue gas desulfurization (FGD) and source 
shutdowns, which would assist compliance with the requirements of 
Regulation 45CSR10. An October 3, 2003 Federal Consent Decree between 
EPA and the Virginia Electric and Power Company (VEPCO) establishes 
compliance schedules for Units 1, 2, and 3 of the Mount Storm Power 
Station, and a December 7, 2007 Federal consent decree between EPA and 
the American Electric Power Service Corporation (AEP) establish 
compliance schedules for installing FGD at the Amos, Kanawha River, 
Kammer, Mitchell, Mountaineer, and Sporn Power Stations. Given that the 
compliance dates and regulation citations in section 52.2524 have been 
updated either in the SIP or by the 2003 and 2007 Federal consent 
decrees, section 52.2524 is being removed.
Section 52.2525 Control strategy: Sulfur dioxide.
    Paragraph 52.2525(a) is obsolete and is being removed. As explained 
previously in this action, the SO2 emission limit for the 
Rivesville Power Station, established in 1972, has since been approved 
by EPA on June 3, 2003 (68 FR 33002). See 40 CFR 52.2520(c). Since 
1978, when the part 81 attainment designations were first established 
under section 107 of the CAA, the area in which this power plant is 
located (Marion County) has been designated attainment for the primary 
and secondary NAAQS for SO2. EPA has also reviewed the 
ambient data of the secondary SO2 NAAQS and has found that 
no violations have been recorded since January 1996.
Section 52.2528 Significant deterioration of air quality.
    Paragraph 52.2528(b) describes portions of the Federal PSD 
regulation (40CFR 52.21) which are incorporated and made a part of the 
West Virginia SIP. This paragraph is redundant and is being removed 
because these measures duplicate the regulatory requirements of West 
Virginia Regulation 45CSR14, which is incorporated by reference at 
Section 52.2520(c).
Section 52.2565 Original identification of plan.
    Paragraphs 52.2565(b) and (c) of this section, originally 
designated as 40 CFR 52.2520(b) and (c), contains historical 
information only about EPA's approval actions for the West Virginia SIP 
which occurred between May 31, 1972 and December 1, 2004. On February 
10, 2005 (70 FR 7024), EPA reorganized the Identification of plan 
section (section 52.2520) for subpart XX by listing and summarizing 
West Virginia's currently approved SIP requirements in paragraphs 
52.2520(a) through (e). Paragraphs 52.2565(b) and (c) are being removed 
because EPA has determined that it is no longer necessary to codify the 
information found in these paragraphs. Paragraph 52.2565(a) is being 
amended to state that this historical information will continue to be 
made available in the CFR annual editions, Title 40 part 52 (years 2005 
through 2012). These annual editions are available on line at the 
following url address: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/browse/collectionCfr.action?collectionCode=CFR.

G. Multistate Removal Actions Affected by the National Low Emission 
Vehicle Program

    On January 24, 1995 (60 FR 4712), EPA promulgated 40 CFR 51.120, 
which established a ``SIP call'' mandating a LEV program, based on 
California's motor vehicle emissions, which would provide air pollutant 
emissions reductions for states located on the Ozone Transport Region 
(OTR). See,

[[Page 33983]]

CAA sections 177 and 184. The following OTR states are located in EPA 
region III: Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, 
and the portion of Virginia that was included in the Consolidated 
Metropolitan Statistical Area (CMSA) for Washington, DC as of November 
15, 1990. For each of these States' part 52 subparts, EPA added CFR 
regulations which cross-reference 40 CFR 52.120. The respective 
sections are: 52.433, 52.498, 52.1079, 52.2057, and 52.2453. However, 
on March 11, 1997, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit 
vacated the provisions of 40 CFR 51.20. See, Virginia v. EPA, 108 F.3d 
1397 (D.C. Cir. Ct. of Appeals, 1997; rehearing denied June 13, 1997.
    Subsequently, the EPA Region III States located in the OTR adopted 
a similar program known as the NLEV program, a collaborative effort of 
EPA, the OTC States, the automobile manufacturers, and others that 
would achieve emissions reductions equal to or greater than would be 
accomplished if the OTC States adopted the California LEV program under 
the authority of CAA section 177. Under the NLEV program, the States 
achieved the reductions the SIP call would have required. Therefore, 
EPA approved their respective NLEV SIP revisions on the following 
dates: December 28, 1999 (64 FR 72564) for Delaware, Maryland, 
Pennsylvania, and Virginia; and July 20, 2000 (65 FR 44981 for the 
District of Columbia. See 40 CFR 52.420(c), 52.1070(c), 52.2020(c)(1), 
52.2420(c), and 52.470(c) respectively.
    As a result of the Court's vacatur action and of EPA's subsequent 
approvals of the OTR States' NLEV programs, EPA has deemed sections 
52.433, 52.498, 52.1079, 52.2057, and 52.2453 to be legally obsolete. 
In today's action, these five sections are being removed from the CFR.
    It should be noted that since February 10, 2000 (65 FR 6698), the 
NLEV program has been superseded by EPA's issuance of a final rule 
promulgating Federal Tier 2 vehicle emission and fuel standards. This 
Federal Tier 2 program provides for stricter new vehicle emissions 
standards than that of the NLEV program, beginning with the phase-in of 
that program in model year 2004. Additionally, the Federal Tier 2 
program was fully in place and was mandatory for all new subject 
vehicles on a national basis in model year 2006. At that time, the NLEV 
program ceased to exist for all states, and states' participation in 
the National NLEV ceased with the 2006 model year.

III. Final Action

    EPA has determined that the above-referenced rules should be 
removed or revised at this time. EPA is publishing this rule without 
prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial 
amendment and anticipates no adverse comment. However, in the 
``Proposed Rules'' section of today's Federal Register, EPA is 
publishing a separate document that will serve as the proposal to 
approve the SIP revision if adverse comments are filed. This rule will 
be effective on August 5, 2013 without further notice unless EPA 
receives adverse comment by July 8, 2013. If EPA receives adverse 
comment, EPA will publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register 
informing the public that the rule will not take effect. EPA will 
address all public comments in a subsequent final rule based on the 
proposed rule. EPA will not institute a second comment period on this 
action. Any parties interested in commenting must 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.

IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

A. General Requirements

    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. This rule is 
not subject to Executive Order 13211, ``Actions Concerning Regulations 
That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use'' (66 FR 
28355, May 22, 2001) because it is not a significant regulatory action 
under Executive Order 12866. Because the agency has made a ``good 
cause'' finding that this action is not subject to notice-and-comment 
requirements under the Administrative Procedure Act or any other 
statute as indicated in the Supplementary Information section above, it 
is not subject to the regulatory flexibility provisions of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.), or to sections 202 
and 205 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) (Pub. L. 
104-4, 109 Stat. 48 (1995)). In addition, this action does not 
significantly or uniquely affect small governments or impose a 
significant intergovernmental mandate, as described in sections 203 and 
204 of UMRA. This rule also does not have a substantial direct effect 
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, as 
specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), nor 
will it 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 the various levels of 
government, as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 
10, 1999). This rule also is not subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 
FR 19885, April 23, 1997), because it is not economically significant. 
This technical correction action does not involve technical standards; 
thus the requirements of section 12(d) of the National Technology 
Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) do not apply. 
The rule also does not involve special consideration of environmental 
justice related issues as required by Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 
7629, February 16, 1994). In issuing this rule, EPA has taken the 
necessary steps to eliminate drafting errors and ambiguity, minimize 
potential litigation, and provide a clear legal standard for affected 
conduct, as required by section 3 of Executive Order 12988 (61 FR 4729, 
February 7, 1996). EPA has complied with Executive Order 12630 (53 FR 
8859, March 15, 1998) by examining the takings implications of the rule 
in accordance with the ``Attorney General's Supplemental Guidelines for 
the Evaluation of Risk and Avoidance of Unanticipated Takings'' issued 
under the Executive Order. This rule does not impose an information 
collection burden under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.)

B. Submission to Congress and the Comptroller General

    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.

[[Page 33984]]

This action is not a ``major rule'' as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).

C. Petitions for Judicial Review

    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 August 5, 2013. 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 action. This action which removes or revises 
outdated or obsolete part 52 language for Delaware, the District of 
Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia may not 
be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See 
section 307(b)(2))
