SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The Clean Air Act (CAA) requires that States develop Reasonably 
Available Control Technology (RACT) regulations for all major 
stationary sources of nitrogen oxides (NOX) in areas which 
have been classified as ``moderate,'' ``serious,'' ``severe,'' and 
``extreme'' ozone nonattainment areas, and in all areas of the Ozone 
Transport Region (OTR). EPA has defined RACT as the lowest emission 
limitation that a particular source is capable of meeting by the 
application of control technology that is reasonably available 
considering technological and economic feasibility (44 FR 53762; 
September 17, 1979). This requirement is established by sections 
182(b)(2), 182(f), and 184(b) of the CAA.
    Major sources in moderate areas are subject to section 182(b)(2), 
which requires States to adopt RACT for all major sources of VOC. This 
requirement also applies to all major sources in areas with higher 
classifications. Additionally, section 182(f) of the CAA states that 
``The plan provisions required under this subpart for major stationary 
sources of volatile organic compounds shall also apply to major 
stationary sources (as defined in section 302 and subsections (c), (d), 
and (e) of the section) of oxides of nitrogen.'' For serious 
nonattainment areas, a major source is defined by section 182(c) as a 
source that has the potential to emit 50 tons per year. For severe 
nonattainment areas, a major source is defined by section 182(d) as a 
source that has the potential to emit 25 tons per year. The entire 
State of Connecticut is classified as nonattainment for ozone, with the 
Connecticut portion of the New York-New Jersey-Long Island CMSA being 
classified as severe, and with the rest of the State being classified 
as serious.
    These CAA NOX requirements are further described by EPA 
in a notice entitled, ``State Implementation Plans; Nitrogen Oxides 
Supplement to the General Preamble; Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 
Implementation of Title I; Proposed Rule,'' published November 25, 1992 
(57 FR 55620). The November 25, 1992 notice, also known as the 
``NOX Supplement,'' should be

[[Page 52017]]

referred to for more detailed information on NOX 
requirements. Additional EPA guidance memoranda, such as those included 
in the ``NOX Policy Document for the Clean Air Act of 
1990,'' (EPA-452/R-96-005, March 1996), should also be referred to for 
more information on NOX requirements. Similarly, the 
``Economic Incentive Program Rules,'' or EIP, (67 FR 16690, April 7, 
1997) should be referred to for information on EPA's policy concerning 
the use of emissions trading by sources subject to NOX RACT.
    On May 20, 1997, the Connecticut Department of Environmental 
Protection (DEP) submitted revisions to its SIP. The revisions included 
a revised section 22a-174-22 of the Regulations of Connecticut State 
Agencies, ``Control of Nitrogen Oxides Emissions.'' The Connecticut 
NOX RACT regulation contains a combination of NOX 
emission limitations, performance standards, and compliance options, 
including provisions for sources to meet emission limitations through 
emissions trading. Subsequently, Connecticut submitted a number of 
case-specific SIP revisions related to the emissions trading provisions 
of section 22a-174-22. These regulations and case-specific SIP 
revisions were submitted in response to the CAA requirements that 
Connecticut require RACT for all major sources of NOX.

II. State Submittal

    Connecticut's regulation 22a-174-22, ``Control of Nitrogen Oxides 
Emissions,'' was first incorporated into the SIP on May 31, 1972 (37 FR 
23085). On February 1, 1994, Connecticut sent a revised draft of the 
rule to EPA. The regulations were filed with the Secretary of State on 
May 20, 1994, and became effective on that date. Connecticut submitted 
the revised section 22a-174-22 as a formal SIP submittal to EPA on May 
24, 1994. After reviewing the regulation for completeness, EPA sent 
Connecticut a June 23, 1994 letter stating that Connecticut's rule had 
been found to be administratively and technically complete. 
Subsequently, on September 19, 1996, Connecticut proposed another 
revision to section 22a-174-22. Connecticut held a public hearing on 
that revision on October 30, 1996 and EPA submitted written comments to 
the public record on October 23, 1996. The revised section 22a-174-22 
was adopted by Connecticut on January 23, 1997. On May 20, 1997, 
Connecticut submitted the regulations to EPA as a request for a 
revision to the SIP. On May 28, 1997, EPA sent a letter to Connecticut 
deeming the package administratively and technically complete.
    In addition to the submittal of section 22a-174-22, since May 1995, 
Connecticut has submitted 23 case-specific SIP revisions for sources 
involved in the trading of NOX credits as allowed under 
subsection 22a-174-22(j). Of the 23 case-specific packages, four 
involve the generation of NOX credits and 19 involve the use 
of NOX credits in order to meet NOX emission 
reduction requirements of section 22a-174-22.

III. Description of Submittal

    The following description concerns the changes being approved in 
this action. For a more detailed discussion of Connecticut's submittal 
and EPA's proposed action, the reader should refer to the Technical 
Support Document (TSD) and attachments which were developed as part of 
this action. Copies of the TSD and attachments are found at the 
previously mentioned addresses.

A. Section 22a-174-22

    Connecticut's regulation, section 22a-174-22, ``Control of Nitrogen 
Oxides Emissions,'' is divided into thirteen sections. Subsection (a) 
defines terms used in the rule. Subsections (b) and (c) cover 
applicability and exemptions. Applicability is determined unit-by-unit, 
based on unit type. An emissions unit is subject to the rule if it 
exceeds a minimum capacity rating and is located at a major source. 
Additionally, any fuel-burning equipment, whether located at a major 
stationary source or not, which has daily potential emissions of 
NOX in excess of certain thresholds during the ozone season, 
is also subject to the rule. The regulations exempt sources where 
actual emissions have not exceeded the major source threshold since 
1990 and emergency electricity generating engines. Subsection (c) 
states that this subsection does not apply to mobile sources.
    Subsections (d) and (e) establish the emission limits to apply 
before and after May 31, 1995. Subsection (d) established the emission 
limits for sources prior to May 31, 1995. Subsection (d) also lists 
compliance options available to sources after May 31, 1995. These 
options are compliance with emission limitations, fuel switching, a 40% 
emission reduction, source reconstruction, schedule modification, or 
emission reduction trading. Requirements for each method of compliance 
are detailed in subsections (f) through (j). Subsection (d) also 
provides for one year compliance date extensions subject to the 
approval of the Commissioner and EPA.\1\ Subsection (e) establishes the 
post-May, 1995 emission limits with specific limits for: turbines; 
cyclone furnaces; fast-response double-furnace Naval boilers; 
fluidized-bed combustors; ``other boilers;'' reciprocating engines; 
waste combustors; fuel burning equipment firing fuels other than gas, 
oil, or coal; glass melting furnace; and other sources providing direct 
heat. Subsection (e) also contains an emission limit for all other 
sources not having a specifically defined emission limitation.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See EPA's July 5, 1994 policy memorandum entitled, ``Phase-
in of Controls Beyond May 1995,'' from John Seitz, Director of the 
Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards to the regional EPA Air 
Program Directors.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Subsection (f) establishes the requirements for multi-fuel sources 
which co-fire, fuel switch, or completely convert to a different fuel. 
Sources simultaneously firing more than one fuel are subject to the 
Btu-weighted average of the applicable emission limits. Sources capable 
of firing more than one fuel are subject to applicable emission limits 
for each fuel at the time it is fired, however, if gas or distillate 
oil is fired exclusively May through September, the source is subject 
to a limit of 0.20 lb/mmBtu in May through September and a limit of 
0.29 lb/mmBtu October through April. If a source converts to a new 
fuel, the source is subject to 0.29 lb/mmBtu if the primary fuel was 
previously coal, or 0.225 lb/mmBtu if the primary fuel was previously 
residual oil.
    Subsection (g) establishes the requirements for sources making a 
40% emission reduction to comply. The 40% reduction is calculated as 
the more stringent of a) 60% of the source's emission rate at maximum 
capacity during 1990 or b) 60% of the applicable pre-May 1995 emission 
limit established in subsection (d). Subsection (h) establishes the 
compliance requirements for sources reconstructing or replacing a unit. 
Pursuant to a permit, these sources must complete reconstruction by May 
31, 1999. Prior to May, 1999, the source's emissions are limited to the 
more stringent of the pre-May 1995 emission limit the source would be 
subject to under subsection (d) or the emission limit in the source's 
current permit. In the interim period between May 31, 1995 and May 31, 
1999, the source must deposit money into an escrow account equivalent 
to $1000 times the pounds/day needed to comply with RACT. This money is 
only returned to the source after the reconstruction is completed. If 
reconstruction has not been completed by the date required in the 
permit, the

[[Page 52018]]

source may use the escrow money to acquire emission credits.
    Subsection (i) establishes the requirements for sources complying 
through schedule modification. Schedule modification by permit is 
allowed only if the source can demonstrate to the Commissioner that it 
is not economically or technically feasible to comply with the emission 
limitations, fuel switching, or a 40% emission reduction. Subsection 
(i) applies only to oil-fired turbines or fast-response double-furnace 
Naval boilers that generate power to create simulated high-altitude 
atmospheres for the testing of aircraft engines or testing of fuel-
burning equipment undergoing research and development.
    Subsection (j) establishes the requirements for sources complying 
with subsection (e) emission limitations through emissions trading. 
Under subsection (d)(4), compliance through emission reduction trading 
is allowed only through revisions to the SIP. Therefore, each use of 
emissions trading for compliance with subsection (e) limits will be 
reviewed and processed as a separate regulatory action.
    Subsection (k) covers requirements for emission testing and 
monitoring. Units at major sources having stacks which emitted 100 tons 
per year or more at anytime since 1990 are required to install CEMS. 
Sources with CEMS are required to demonstrate compliance on a block 24-
hour basis, including emissions from start-up, shut-down, and equipment 
malfunctions. All other sources are required to demonstrate compliance 
through three 1-hour stack tests. Initial compliance demonstrations 
were required by May 31, 1995. Sources without CEMS are required to 
conduct emission tests once every 5 years. Sources may apply for a one-
year extension to comply with subsection (k) requirements.
    Subsection (l) covers recordkeeping and reporting requirements 
concerning operating hours, fuel usage, NOX emissions, 
equipment maintenance, CEMS records, and emissions testing information. 
Sources must retain these records for five years. Sources with CEMS are 
required to submit quarterly excess emissions reports and all sources 
are required to submit annual emission reports.
    Subsection (m) covers compliance plans. Sources were required to 
submit certified compliance plans to the Commissioner by September 1, 
1994.

B. Case-Specific Emission Trading Orders

    In addition to the submittal of section 22a-174-22, Connecticut 
subsequently submitted 23 case-specific SIP revisions for sources 
involved in the trading of NOX credits as part of the 
emission reduction trading option of subsection 22a-174-22(j). These 
SIP revisions consist of SIP narratives, which describe how 
Connecticut's actions comply with the State program requirements of the 
EIP (see 40 CFR Part 51.493), and the trading orders issued by the 
State, which define the enforceable requirements applicable to the 
sources involved in trading. Of the 23 case-specific packages, 4 
involve the generation of NOX credits and 19 involve the use 
of NOX credits in order to meet the NOX emission 
reduction requirements of section 22a-174-22. EPA's analysis in the 
attachments to the TSD addresses Connecticut's compliance with EPA 
regulations and guidance concerning the EIP.
    The first credit creation submittal involves United Illuminating 
Company's Station #3 in New Haven. Consent Order no. 8092 was adopted 
by the State on May 18, 1995, submitted to EPA on May 18, 1995, and 
deemed complete by EPA on September 12, 1995. The second credit 
generation consent order, issued to Connecticut Light and Power, Order 
no. 1494, involves reductions at the Devon, Montville, and Norwalk 
stations. Order 1494 was adopted on October 15, 1996, submitted to EPA 
on March 20, 1997, and deemed complete on April 7, 1997. Additionally, 
Order no. 8116 for the Connecticut Resource Recovery Authority, issued 
by the State and submitted to EPA on April 22, 1997, and deemed 
complete by EPA on May 28, 1997, allows for the generation of credit at 
the Hartford facility. Order No. 8123 allows for the creation of credit 
at Algonquin Gas Transmission Company's Cromwell facility. Similarly, 
Order no. 8123 was adopted on April 18, 1997 and submitted to EPA as a 
SIP revision on April 22, 1997. The package was deemed complete on May 
28, 1997.
    The remaining case-specific actions involve the use of 
NOX credits as described in the following consent orders: 
(1) Order no. 8093 for Pfizer, Inc., in Groton, adopted on July 19, 
1995, submitted to EPA on January 17, 1996 and deemed complete on July

1997; (19) Order no. 8113 for Simkins Industries, adopted on November 
19, 1996, submitted to EPA on May 19, 1997, and deemed complete on May 
28, 1997; and, (20) Order no. 8110 for Yale University, adopted on July 
29, 1996, submitted on April 19, 1997, and deemed complete on May 28, 
1997.
    Additionally, on November 16, 1996, Connecticut submitted 
supplementary documentation to EPA in support of the emissions trading 
related consent orders. This documentation included an audit of the 
NOX credit creation and credit use in Connecticut as well as 
a discussion of how the Connecticut program meets the State program 
requirements of the EIP. These documents have been included in the 
Technical Support Document (TSD) as Appendix A.
    The November 16, 1996 documentation demonstrates that the use of 
credits for compliance with section 22a-174-22, including the use of 
one-time or carry over credits during time periods other than when they 
were generated (i.e., the intertemporal use of credits), is consistent 
with the requirements of the Connecticut SIP, RFP and ROP plans, and 
area-wide RACT requirements. The documentation includes an audit of the 
NOX RACT trades in Connecticut from June 1995 to December 
1995 and shows that there was no increase in NOX emissions, 
or ``spiking,'' due to the use of credits for compliance during that 
time. In fact, Connecticut's audit clearly shows that quantity of 
credits created during the ozone season of 1995 were greater than the 
quantity used.
    Connecticut's analysis also discusses a number of their 
NOX RACT program characteristics which inherently buffer the 
intertemporal use of credits. First, some of the credit is generated 
from units which are using additional controls to permanently keep 
emissions at levels well below their limits. Since some or all of this 
credit is not used during the season/year that it is generated, it 
provides a buffer against spiking during that time. Second, most 
sources operate below the required emission rate limitations, creating 
a compliance margin of emission reductions which are not assumed in the 
SIP. This aggregate compliance margin could be quantified relatively 
easily, particularly for sources with continuous emission monitoring 
systems. This margin is estimated to be several hundred tons per year. 
Although concerns have been expressed to EPA about allowing this type 
of margin to be treated as an individual facility's credit, the 
aggregate can be viewed as buffering intertemporal credit use statewide 
regardless of whether a facility's margin would ever be approved as 
tradeable credit. Furthermore, Connecticut has dealt with the question 
of the creditability of the compliance margin on a trade-by-trade basis 
by requiring that a minimum of 10% of credit be retired upon creation 
and that credit users meet an emission limit which is at least 5% lower 
than the RACT limits of subsection (e).
    Also, the Connecticut documentation discusses a number of other 
program elements which, although not quantified at this time, could be 
considered as acting as a trading buffer and helping to ensure that 
RACT and RFP are maintained. For instance, Connecticut's rule does not 
provide for alternative RACT limits (i.e., relaxations of the limits 
set in subsection (e) of the regulation) or compliance date extensions 
(other than the one year extensions for innovative technologies under 
subsection (d)(3)). During the first two years of NOX RACT 
implementation, Connecticut has followed the policy that since other 
compliance options are provided for by the regulation, relaxations are 
not allowed in this program. Admirably, Connecticut has held to this 
policy and the effectiveness of the regulation to reduce emissions has 
been greater than if such variances had been allowed under the rule. If 
Connecticut does, however, ever decide to allow for NOX RACT 
variances while simultaneously relying on the increased rule 
effectiveness for intertemporal credit buffering purposes, EPA will 
have the ability to evaluate the credit balance situation at that time 
since such actions must be reviewed and approved by EPA as changes to 
the SIP.
    Given Connecticut's documentation, EPA believes that Connecticut 
has shown that the quantity of NOX reductions being achieved 
by section 22a-174-22 is at least as great as would have been achieved 
without the trading option. Furthermore, given the inherent buffering 
characteristics of the program, the RFP and SIP attainment requirements 
also should continue to be met. Based upon the documentation presented, 
EPA believes that the emissions trading aspect of the NOX 
RACT program meets all applicable EPA guidances.

IV. Issues

    Subsections (h) and (i) of the regulation do not explicitly require 
facilities undergoing reconstruction or utilizing schedule 
modifications to have RACT orders issued to them and subsequently, to 
have those orders approved by EPA. However, on June 18, 1996, Carmine 
DiBattista, Chief, Bureau of Air Management, Connecticut DEP, sent a 
letter to Susan Studlien, Deputy Director, Office of Ecosystem 
Protection, U.S. EPA Region I, clarifying that either federally 
enforceable permits or case-specific SIP revisions will be submitted 
for the three sources subject to the reconstruction and schedule 
modification provisions. Furthermore, the letter contained 
documentation that neither combustion modifications nor add-on controls 
are technically or economically feasible for the three facilities 
affected by the schedule modification section of the regulation because 
these units are operated intermittently or at irregular loads. Given 
this additional documentation, subsections (h) and (i) are approvable.

V. Final Action

    EPA review of the NOX RACT SIP related submittals, 
including NOX RACT regulation 22a-174-22 and the 23 source-
specific NOX emissions trading orders described above, 
indicates that Connecticut has sufficiently defined the NOX 
RACT requirements for the State. Therefore, EPA is approving section 
22a-174-22, as submitted on May 20, 1997, as well as the 23 source-
specific Connecticut orders, into the SIP at this time.
    EPA is publishing this action without prior proposal because the 
Agency views this as a noncontroversial amendment and anticipates no 
adverse comments. However, in a separate document in this Federal 
Register publication, EPA is proposing to approve the SIP revision 
unless adverse or critical comments are filed. This action will be 
effective December 5, 1997 unless adverse or critical comments are 
received by November 5, 1997.
    If EPA receives such comments, this action will be withdrawn before 
the effective date by simultaneously publishing a subsequent notice 
that will withdraw the final action. All public comments received will 
then be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this action 
serving as a proposed rule. EPA will not institute a second comment 
period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting on this 
action should do so at this time. If no such comments are received, the 
public is advised that this action will be effective on December 5, 
1997.
    Nothing in this action should be construed as permitting or 
allowing or establishing a precedent for any future request for 
revision to any State implementation plan. Each request for

[[Page 52020]]

revision to the State implementation plan shall be considered 
separately in light of specific technical, economic, and environmental 
factors and in relation to relevant statutory and regulatory 
requirements.

VI. Administrative Requirements

A. Executive Order 12866

    This action has been classified as a Table 3 action for signature 
by the Regional Administrator under the procedures published in the 
Federal Register on January 19, 1989 (54 FR 2214-2225), as revised by a 
July 10, 1995 memorandum from Mary Nichols, Assistant Administrator for 
Air and Radiation. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has 
exempted this regulatory action from E.O. 12866 review.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 600 et. seq., EPA 
must prepare a regulatory flexibility analysis assessing the impact of 
any proposed or final rule on small entities. 5 U.S.C. 603 and 604. 
Alternatively, EPA may certify that the rule will not have a 
significant impact on a substantial number of small entities. Small 
entities include small businesses, small not-for-profit enterprises, 
and government entities with jurisdiction over populations of less than 
50,000.
    SIP approvals under section 110 and subchapter I, part D of the 
Clean Air Act do not create any new requirements but simply approve 
requirements that the State is already imposing. Therefore, because the 
Federal SIP approval does not impose any new requirements, the 
Administrator certifies that it does not have a significant impact on 
any small entities affected. Moreover, due to the nature of the 
Federal-State relationship under the CAA, preparation of a flexibility 
analysis would constitute Federal inquiry into the economic 
reasonableness of state action. The CAA forbids EPA to base its actions 
concerning SIPs on such grounds. Union Electric Co. v. U.S. EPA, 427 
U.S. 246, 255-66 (1976); 42 U.S.C. 7410(a)(2).

C. Unfunded Mandates

    Under section 202 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 
(Unfunded Mandates Act), signed into law on March 22, 1995, EPA must 
prepare a budgetary impact statement to accompany any proposed or final 
rule that includes a Federal mandate that may result in estimated costs 
to State, local, or tribal governments in the aggregate, or to the 
private sector, of $100 million or more. Under section 205, EPA must 
select the most cost-effective and least burdensome alternative that 
achieves the objectives of the rule and is consistent with statutory 
requirements. Section 203 requires EPA to establish a plan for 
informing and advising any small governments that may be significantly 
or uniquely impacted by the rule.
    EPA has determined that the approval action promulgated does not 
include a Federal mandate that may result in estimated costs of $100 
million or more to either State, local, or tribal governments in the 
aggregate, or to the private sector. This Federal action approves pre-
existing requirements under State or local law, and imposes no new 
Federal requirements. Accordingly, no additional costs to State, local, 
or tribal governments, or to the private sector, result from this 
action.

D. 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).

E. 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 December 5, 1997.
    Filing a petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this 
final rule does not affect the finality of this rule 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. This action may not be challenged 
later in proceedings to enforce its requirements. See section 
307(b)(2). EPA encourages interested parties to comment in response to 
the proposed rule rather than petition for judicial review, unless the 
objection arises after the comment period allowed for in the proposal.
