ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 9

[FRL-5194-9]


OMB Approval Number Under the Paperwork Reduction Act; Regulation 
of Fuels and Fuel Additives

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Final rule; technical amendment; and confirmation of effective 
date.

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

SUMMARY: In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act, this document 
announces that the Information Collection Requirements (ICR) contained 
in the Regulations of Fuels and Fuel Additives; Fuel Quality 
Regulations for Highway Diesel Fuel Sold in 1993 and Later Calendar 
Years Interim Final Rule, as published in the Federal Register on July 
14, 1994, have been approved by the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) and the affected subsection of the regulation is effective April 
25, 1995. This document also displays the OMB control number issued 
under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) in the OMB approval table.

EFFECTIVE DATE: 40 CFR 80.29(e), which contains ICRs, and the amendment 
to 40 CFR part 9 are effective April 25, 1995.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Paul N. Argyropoulos, Field Operations 
and Support Division, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 401 M 
Street SW., Washington, DC 20460, phone: (202) 233-9004.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: EPA is today amending the table of currently 
approved information collection request (ICR) control numbers issued by 
OMB for various regulations. Today's amendment updates the table to 
accurately display those information requirements promulgated under the 
Regulations of Fuels and Fuel Additives, Fuel Quality Regulations for 
Highway Diesel Fuel Sold in 1993 and Later Calendar Years which 
appeared in the Federal Register on July 14, 1994 (59 FR 35854). The 
affected regulations are codified at 40 CFR 80.29(c). This display of 
the OMB control number and its subsequent codification in the Code of 
Federal Regulations satisfies the requirements of the Paperwork 
Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) and OMB's implementing 
regulations at 5 CFR 1320.
    The information collection requirement was previously subject to 
public notice and comment prior to OMB approval. As a result, EPA finds 
that there is ``good cause'' under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 
U.S.C. 553(b)(B) and 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3)) to amend this regulation 
without prior notice and comment. Also due to the technical nature of 
this revision, the Agency believes further notice and comment is 
unnecessary.
