ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 52

[EPA-R03-OAR-2014-0476; FRL-9917-16-Region 3]


Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; 
Pennsylvania; Allegheny County's Adoption of Control Techniques 
Guidelines for Offset Lithographic Printing and Letterpress Printing; 
Flexible Package Printing; and Industrial Solvent Cleaning Operations 
for Control of Volatile Organic Compound Emissions

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is approving a State 
Implementation Plan (SIP) revision submitted by the Commonwealth of 
Pennsylvania. This SIP revision includes amendments to the Allegheny 
County Health Department (ACHD) Rules and Regulations, Article XXI, Air 
Pollution Control, and meets the requirement to adopt Reasonably 
Available Control Technology (RACT) for sources covered by EPA's 
Control Techniques Guidelines (CTG) standards for the following 
categories: Offset lithographic printing and letterpress printing, 
flexible package printing, and industrial solvent cleaning operations. 
EPA is approving the revision to the Pennsylvania SIP in accordance 
with the requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA).

DATES: This final rule is effective on November 5, 2014.

ADDRESSES: EPA has established a docket for this action under Docket ID 
Number EPA-R03-OAR-2014-0476. All documents in the docket are listed in

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    Section 172(c)(1) of the CAA provides that SIPs for nonattainment 
areas must include reasonably available control measures (RACM), 
including RACT, for sources of emissions. Section 182(b)(2)(A) provides 
that for certain nonattainment areas, states must revise their SIP to 
include RACT for sources of volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions 
covered by a CTG document issued after November 15, 1990 and prior to 
the area's date of attainment. In 2006, EPA developed new CTGs for 
offset lithographic printing and letterpress printing, flexible package 
printing, and industrial solvent cleaning operations. A formal SIP 
submission was submitted by Pennsylvania to EPA on November 15, 2013 
and on August 1, 2014 (79 FR 44728), EPA published a notice of proposed 
rulemaking (NPR) proposing approval of Pennsylvania's SIP revision for 
adoption of the CTG standards for offset lithographic printing and 
letterpress printing, flexible package printing, and industrial solvent 
cleaning operations in Allegheny County.

II. Summary of SIP Revision

    On November 15, 2013, Pennsylvania Department of Environmental 
Protection (PADEP) submitted to EPA a SIP revision concerning the 
adoption of the EPA CTGs for offset lithographic printing and 
letterpress printing, flexible package printing, and industrial 
cleaning solvent operations in Allegheny County. These regulations are 
contained in the ACHD Rules and Regulations, Article XXI, Air Pollution 
Control sections 2105.80, 2105.81, and 2105.82 in order to: (1) 
Establish applicability for offset lithographic printing and 
letterpress printing, flexible package printing, and industrial 
cleaning solvent operations at facilities; (2) establish exemptions; 
(3) establish record-keeping and work practice requirements; and (4) 
establish emission limitations. Other specific requirements and the 
rationale for EPA's proposed action are explained in the NPR and will 
not be restated here. No public comments were received on the NPR.

III. Final Action

    EPA is approving the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania SIP revision 
submitted on November 15, 2013, which consists of amendments to the 
ACHD Rules and Regulations, Article XXI, Air Pollution Control, and 
meets the requirement to adopt RACT for sources located in Allegheny 
County covered by EPA's CTG standards for the following categories: 
Offset lithographic printing and letterpress printing, flexible package 
printing, and industrial solvent cleaning operations.

IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

A. General Requirements

    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 affect 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.

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. 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 December 5, 2014. 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. This action pertaining to ACHD's adoption of CTG standards for 
offset lithographic printing

[[Page 60061]]

and letterpress printing, flexible package printing, and industrial 
solvent cleaning operations may not be challenged later in proceedings 
to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2).)
