New Source Performance Standards and National Emission Standards 
for Hazardous Air Pollutants; Delegation of Authority to New Mexico

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Direct final rule; delegation of authority.

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

SUMMARY: The New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) has submitted 
updated regulations for receiving delegation and approval of a program 
for the implementation and enforcement of certain New Source 
Performance Standards (NSPS) and National Emission Standards for 
Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for all sources (both Title V and 
non-Title V sources). These updated regulations apply to certain NSPS 
promulgated by the EPA at part 60, as amended between September 24, 
2013 and January 15, 2017; certain NESHAP promulgated by the EPA at 
part 61, as amended between January 1, 2011 and January 15, 2017; and 
other NESHAP promulgated by the EPA at part 63, as amended between 
August 30, 2013 and January 15, 2017, as adopted by the NMED. The EPA 
is providing notice that it is updating the delegation of certain NSPS 
to NMED, and taking direct final action to approve the delegation of 
certain NESHAP to NMED. The delegation of authority under this action 
does not apply to sources located in Bernalillo County, New Mexico, or 
to sources located in Indian Country.

DATES: This rule is effective on June 12, 2018 without further notice, 
unless the EPA receives relevant adverse comment by May 14, 2018. If 
the EPA receives such comment, the EPA will publish a timely withdrawal 
in the Federal Register informing the public that the updated NESHAP 
delegation will not take effect; however, the NSPS delegation will not 
be affected by such action.

XIV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

I. What does this action do?

    The EPA is providing notice that it is approving NMED's request to 
update the delegation for the implementation and enforcement of certain 
NSPS. The EPA is also taking direct final action to approve NMED's 
request updating the delegation of certain NESHAP. With this 
delegation, NMED has the primary responsibility to implement and 
enforce the delegated standards. See sections V and VI, below, for a 
discussion of which standards are being delegated and which are not 
being delegated.

II. What is the authority for delegation?

    Upon the EPA's finding that the procedures submitted by a State for 
the implementation and enforcement of standards of performance for new 
sources located in the State are adequate, Section 111(c)(1) of the 
Clean Air Act (CAA) authorizes the EPA to delegate its authority to 
implement and enforce such standards. The new source performance 
standards are codified at 40 CFR part 60.
    Section 112(l) of the CAA and 40 CFR part 63, subpart E, authorize 
the EPA to delegate authority for the implementation and enforcement of 
emission standards for hazardous air pollutants to a State that 
satisfies the statutory and regulatory requirements in subpart E. The 
hazardous air pollutant standards are codified at 40 CFR parts 61 and 
63.

III. What criteria must New Mexico's programs meet to be approved?

    In order to receive delegation of NSPS, a State must develop and 
submit to the EPA a procedure for implementing and enforcing the NSPS 
in the state, and their regulations and resources must be adequate for 
the implementation and enforcement of the NSPS. The EPA initially 
approved New Mexico's program for the delegation of NSPS on June 6, 
1986 (51 FR 20648). The EPA reviewed the laws of the State and the 
rules and regulations of the New Mexico Environmental Improvement 
Division (now the NMED) and determined the State's procedures, 
regulations and resources were adequate for the implementation and 
enforcement of the Federal standards. The NSPS delegation was most 
recently updated on February 2, 2015 (80 FR 5475). This action notifies 
the public that the EPA is updating NMED's delegation to implement and 
enforce certain additional NSPS.
    Section 112(l)(5) of the CAA requires the EPA to disapprove any 
program submitted by a State for the delegation of NESHAP standards if 
the EPA determines that:
    (A) The authorities contained in the program are not adequate to 
assure compliance by the sources within the

[[Page 15965]]

State with respect to each applicable standard, regulation, or 
requirement established under section 112;
    (B) adequate authority does not exist, or adequate resources are 
not available, to implement the program;
    (C) the schedule for implementing the program and assuring 
compliance by affected sources is not sufficiently expeditious; or
    (D) the program is otherwise not in compliance with the guidance 
issued by the EPA under section 112(l)(2) or is not likely to satisfy, 
in whole or in part, the objectives of the CAA.
    In carrying out its responsibilities under section 112(l), the EPA 
promulgated regulations at 40 CFR part 63, subpart E, setting forth 
criteria for the approval of submitted programs. For example, in order 
to obtain approval of a program to implement and enforce Federal 
section 112 rules as promulgated without changes (straight delegation), 
a State must demonstrate that it meets the criteria of 40 CFR 63.91(d). 
Title 40 CFR 63.91(d)(3) provides that interim or final title V program 
approval will satisfy the criteria of 40 CFR 63.91(d).\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Some NESHAP standards do not require a source to obtain a 
title V permit (e.g., certain area sources that are exempt from the 
requirement to obtain a title V permit). For these non-title V 
sources, the EPA believes that the State must assure the EPA that it 
can implement and enforce the NESHAP for such sources. See 65 FR 
55810, 55813 (Sept. 14, 2000).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The NESHAP delegation was most recently approved on February 2, 
2015 (80 FR 5475).

IV. How did NMED meet the NSPS and NESHAP program approval criteria?

    As to the NSPS standards in 40 CFR part 60, NMED adopted the 
Federal standards via incorporation by reference. The NMED regulations 
are, therefore, at least as stringent as the EPA's rules. See 40 CFR 
60.10(a). Also, in the EPA initial approval of NSPS delegation, we 
determined that the State developed procedures for implementing and 
enforcing the NSPS in the State, and that the State's regulations and 
resources are adequate for the implementation and enforcement of the 
Federal standards. See 51 FR 20648 (June 6, 1986).
    As to the NESHAP standards in 40 CFR parts 61 and 63, as part of 
its Title V submission NMED stated that it intended to use the 
mechanism of incorporation by reference to adopt unchanged Federal 
section 112 standards into its regulations. This commitment applied to 
both existing and future standards as they applied to part 70 sources. 
The EPA's final interim approval of New Mexico's Title V operating 
permits program delegated the authority to implement certain NESHAP, 
effective December 19, 1994 (59 FR 59656). On November 26, 1996, the 
EPA promulgated final full approval of the State's operating permits 
program, effective January 27, 1997 (61 FR 60032). These interim and 
final title V program approvals satisfy the upfront approval criteria 
of 40 CFR 63.91(d). Under 40 CFR 63.91(d)(2), once a state has 
satisfied the up-front approval criteria, it needs only to reference 
the previous demonstration and reaffirm that it still meets the 
criteria for any subsequent submittals for delegation of the section 
112 standards. NMED has affirmed that it still meets the up-front 
approval criteria. With respect to non-Title V sources, the EPA has 
previously approved delegation of NESHAP authorities to NMED after 
finding adequate authorities to implement and enforce the NESHAP for 
non-Title V sources. See 68 FR 69036 (December 11, 2003).

V. What is being delegated?

    By letter dated January 22, 2016, the EPA received a request from 
NMED to update its NSPS delegation and NESHAP delegation. With certain 
exceptions noted in section VI below, NMED's request included NSPS in 
40 CFR part 60, as amended between September 24, 2013 and September 15, 
2015; NESHAP in 40 CFR part 61, as amended between January 1, 2011 and 
September 15, 2015; and NESHAP in 40 CFR part 63, as amended between 
August 30, 2013 and September 15, 2015.
    By letter dated June 9, 2017, the EPA received a request from NMED 
to update its NSPS delegation and NESHAP delegation. With certain 
exceptions noted in section VI below, NMED's request included NSPS in 
40 CFR part 60, as amended between September 15, 2015 and January 15, 
2017; NESHAP in 40 CFR part 61, as amended between September 15, 2015 
and January 15, 2017; and NESHAP in 40 CFR part 63, as amended between 
September 15, 2015 and January 15, 2017. This action is being taken in 
response to NMED's requests noted above.

VI. What is not being delegated?

    All authorities not affirmatively and expressly delegated by this 
action are not delegated. These include the following part 60, 61 and 
63 authorities listed below:
     40 CFR part 60, subpart AAA (Standards of Performance for 
New Residential Wood Heaters);
     40 CFR part 60, subpart QQQQ (Standards of Performance for 
New Residential Hydronic Heaters and Forced-Air Furnaces);
     40 CFR part 61, subpart B (National Emission Standards for 
Radon Emissions from Underground Uranium Mines);
     40 CFR part 61, subpart H (National Emission Standards for 
Emissions of Radionuclides Other Than Radon From Department of Energy 
Facilities);
     40 CFR part 61, subpart I (National Emission Standards for 
Radionuclide Emissions from Federal Facilities Other Than Nuclear 
Regulatory Commission Licensees and Not Covered by Subpart H);
     40 CFR part 61, subpart K (National Emission Standards for 
Radionuclide Emissions from Elemental Phosphorus Plants);
     40 CFR part 61, subpart Q (National Emission Standards for 
Radon Emissions from Department of Energy facilities);
     40 CFR part 61, subpart R (National Emission Standards for 
Radon Emissions from Phosphogypsum Stacks);
     40 CFR part 61, subpart T (National Emission Standards for 
Radon Emissions from the Disposal of Uranium Mill Tailings);
     40 CFR part 61, subpart W (National Emission Standards for 
Radon Emissions from Operating Mill Tailings); and
     40 CFR part 63, subpart J (National Emission Standards for 
Polyvinyl Chloride and Copolymers Production).
    In addition, the EPA regulations provide that we cannot delegate to 
a State any of the Category II authorities set forth in 40 CFR 
63.91(g)(2). These include the following provisions: Sec.  63.6(g), 
Approval of Alternative Non-Opacity Standards; Sec.  63.6(h)(9), 
Approval of Alternative Opacity Standards; Sec.  63.7(e)(2)(ii) and 
(f), Approval of Major Alternatives to Test Methods; Sec.  63.8(f), 
Approval of Major Alternatives to Monitoring; and Sec.  63.10(f), 
Approval of Major Alternatives to Recordkeeping and Reporting. Also, 
some part 61 and part 63 standards have certain provisions that cannot 
be delegated to the States. Furthermore, no authorities are delegated 
that require rulemaking in the Federal Register to implement, or where 
Federal overview is the only way to ensure national consistency in the 
application of the standards or requirements of CAA section 112. 
Finally, this action does not delegate any authority under section 
112(r), the accidental release program.

[[Page 15966]]

    All of the inquiries and requests concerning implementation and 
enforcement of the excluded standards in the State of New Mexico should 
be directed to the EPA Region 6 Office.
    In addition, this delegation to NMED to implement and enforce 
certain NSPS and NESHAP authorities does not extend to sources or 
activities located in Indian country, as defined in 18 U.S.C. 1151. 
Under this definition, the EPA treats as reservations, trust lands 
validly set aside for the use of a Tribe even if the trust lands have 
not been formally designated as a reservation. Consistent with previous 
federal program approvals or delegations, the EPA will continue to 
implement the NSPS and NESHAP in Indian country because NMED has not 
submitted information to demonstrate authority over sources and 
activities located within the exterior boundaries of Indian 
reservations and other areas in Indian country.

VII. How will statutory and regulatory interpretations be made?

    In approving the NSPS delegation, NMED will obtain concurrence from 
the EPA on any matter involving the interpretation of section 111 of 
the CAA or 40 CFR part 60 to the extent that implementation or 
enforcement of these provisions have not been covered by prior EPA 
determinations or guidance. See 51 FR 20649 (June 6, 1986).
    In approving the NESHAP delegation, NMED will obtain concurrence 
from the EPA on any matter involving the interpretation of section 112 
of the CAA or 40 CFR parts 61 and 63 to the extent that implementation 
or enforcement of these provisions have not been covered by prior EPA 
determinations or guidance.

VIII. What authority does the EPA have?

    We retain the right, as provided by CAA section 111(c)(2), to 
enforce any applicable emission standard or requirement under section 
111.
    We retain the right, as provided by CAA section 112(l)(7) and 40 
CFR 63.90(d)(2), to enforce any applicable emission standard or 
requirement under section 112. In addition, the EPA may enforce any 
federally approved State rule, requirement, or program under 40 CFR 
63.90(e) and 63.91(c)(1)(i). The EPA also has the authority to make 
decisions under the General Provisions (subpart A) of parts 61 and 63. 
We are delegating to NMED some of these authorities, and retaining 
others, as explained in sections V and VI above. In addition, the EPA 
may review and disapprove State determinations and subsequently require 
corrections. See 40 CFR 63.91(g)(1)(ii). EPA also has the authority to 
review NMED's implementation and enforcement of approved rules or 
programs and to withdraw approval if we find inadequate implementation 
or enforcement. See 40 CFR 63.96.
    Furthermore, we retain any authority in an individual emission 
standard that may not be delegated according to provisions of the 
standard. Also, listed in footnote 2 of the part 63 delegation table at 
the end of this rule are the authorities that cannot be delegated to 
any State or local agency which we therefore retain.
    Finally, we retain the authorities stated in the original 
delegation agreement. See 51 FR 20648-20650 (June 6, 1986).

IX. What information must NMED provide to the EPA?

    NMED must provide any additional compliance related information to 
EPA, Region 6, Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance, within 
45 days of a request under 40 CFR 63.96(a). In receiving delegation for 
specific General Provisions authorities, NMED must submit to EPA Region 
6, on a semi-annual basis, copies of determinations issued under these 
authorities. See 40 CFR 63.91(g)(1)(ii). For 40 CFR part 63 standards, 
these determinations include: Sec.  63.1, Applicability Determinations; 
Sec.  63.6(e), Operation and Maintenance Requirements--Responsibility 
for Determining Compliance; Sec.  63.6(f), Compliance with Non-Opacity 
Standards--Responsibility for Determining Compliance; Sec.  63.6(h), 
Compliance with Opacity and Visible Emissions Standards--Responsibility 
for Determining Compliance; Sec.  63.7(c)(2)(i) and (d), Approval of 
Site-Specific Test Plans; Sec.  63.7(e)(2)(i), Approval of Minor 
Alternatives to Test Methods; Sec.  63.7(e)(2)(ii) and (f), Approval of 
Intermediate Alternatives to Test Methods; Sec.  63.7(e)(2)(iii), 
Approval of Shorter Sampling Times and Volumes When Necessitated by 
Process Variables or Other Factors; Sec.  63.7(e)(2)(iv) and (h)(2) and 
(3), Waiver of Performance Testing; Sec.  63.8(c)(1) and (e)(1), 
Approval of Site-Specific Performance Evaluation (Monitoring) Test 
Plans; Sec.  63.8(f), Approval of Minor Alternatives to Monitoring; 
Sec.  63.8(f), Approval of Intermediate Alternatives to Monitoring; 
Sec. Sec.  63.9 and 63.10, Approval of Adjustments to Time Periods for 
Submitting Reports; Sec.  63.10(f), Approval of Minor Alternatives to 
Recordkeeping and Reporting; Sec.  63.7(a)(4), Extension of Performance 
Test Deadline.

X. What is the EPA's oversight role?

    The EPA oversees NMED's decisions to ensure the delegated 
authorities are being adequately implemented and enforced. We will 
integrate oversight of the delegated authorities into the existing 
mechanisms and resources for oversight currently in place. If, during 
oversight, we determine that NMED made decisions that decreased the 
stringency of the delegated standards, then NMED shall be required to 
take corrective actions and the source(s) affected by the decisions 
will be notified. See 40 CFR 63.91(g)(1)(ii) and (b). We will initiate 
withdrawal of the program or rule if the corrective actions taken are 
insufficient. See 51 FR 20648 (June 6, 1986).

XI. Should sources submit notices to the EPA or NMED?

    Sources located outside the boundaries of Bernalillo County and 
outside of Indian country should submit all of the information required 
pursuant to the delegated authorities in the Federal NSPS and NESHAP 
(40 CFR parts 60, 61 and 63) directly to the NMED at the following 
address: New Mexico Environment Department, 525 Camino de los Marquez, 
Suite I, Santa Fe, New Mexico 87505. The NMED is the primary point of 
contact with respect to delegated NSPS and NESHAP authorities. Sources 
do not need to send a copy to the EPA. The EPA Region 6 waives the 
requirement that notifications and reports for delegated authorities be 
submitted to the EPA in addition to NMED in accordance with 40 CFR 
63.9(a)(4)(ii) and 63.10(a)(4)(ii).\2\ For those authorities not 
delegated, sources must continue to submit all appropriate information 
to the EPA.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ This waiver only extends to the submission of copies of 
notifications and reports; EPA does not waive the requirements in 
delegated standards that require notifications and reports be 
submitted to an electronic database (e.g., 40 CFR part 63, subpart 
HHHHHHH).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

XII. How will unchanged authorities be delegated to NMED in the future?

    In the future, NMED will only need to send a letter of request to 
update their delegation to EPA, Region 6, for those NSPS which they 
have adopted by reference. The EPA will amend the relevant portions of 
the Code of Federal Regulations showing which NSPS standards have been 
delegated to NMED. Also, in the future, NMED will only need to send a 
letter of request for approval to EPA, Region 6, for those NESHAP 
regulations that NMED has adopted by reference. The letter must 
reference the previous up-front approval demonstration and reaffirm 
that it still

[[Page 15967]]

meets the up-front approval criteria. We will respond in writing to the 
request stating that the request for delegation is either granted or 
denied. A Federal Register action will be published to inform the 
public and affected sources of the delegation, indicate where source 
notifications and reports should be sent, and to amend the relevant 
portions of the Code of Federal Regulations showing which NESHAP 
standards have been delegated to NMED.

XIII. Final Action

    The public was provided the opportunity to comment on the proposed 
approval of the program and mechanism for delegation of section 112 
standards, as they apply to part 70 sources, on May 19, 1994, for the 
proposed interim approval of NMED's Title V operating permits program; 
and on November 26, 1996, for the proposed final approval of NMED's 
Title V operating permits program. In the EPA's final full approval of 
New Mexico's Operating Permits Program on November 26, 1996, the EPA 
discussed the public comments on the delegation of the NESHAP 
authorities. In today's action, the public is given the opportunity to 
comment on the approval of NMED's request for delegation of authority 
to implement and enforce certain section 112 standards for all sources 
(both Title V and non-Title V sources) which have been adopted by 
reference into New Mexico's state regulations. However, the Agency 
views the approval of these requests as a noncontroversial action and 
anticipates no relevant adverse comments. Therefore, the EPA is 
publishing this rule without prior proposal. However, in the proposed 
rules section of this issue of the Federal Register, the EPA is 
publishing a separate document that will serve as the proposal to 
approve the NESHAP delegation described in this action if relevant 
adverse comments are received. This action will be effective June 12, 
2018 without further notice unless we receive relevant adverse comment 
by May 14, 2018.
    If we receive relevant adverse comments, we will publish a timely 
withdrawal in the Federal Register informing the public the rule will 
not take effect with respect to the updated NESHAP delegation. We will 
address all public comments in a subsequent final rule based on the 
proposed rule. We 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 we receive relevant adverse comment on an 
amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may 
be severed from the remainder of the rule, we may adopt as final those 
provisions of the rule that are not the subject of a relevant adverse 
comment.

XIV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993), this 
action is not a ``significant regulatory action'' and therefore is not 
subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget. For this 
reason, this action is also not subject to Executive Order 13211, 
``Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy 
Supply, Distribution, or Use'' (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001). This action 
is not an Executive Order 13771 regulatory action because this action 
is not significant under Executive Order 12866. This action merely 
approves state law as meeting Federal requirements and imposes no 
additional requirements beyond those imposed by state law. Accordingly, 
the Administrator certifies that this rule will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.). Because this rule 
approves pre-existing requirements under state law and does not impose 
any additional enforceable duty beyond that required by state law, it 
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). The EPA believes that this action does not 
have disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental 
effects on minority populations, low-income populations and/or 
indigenous peoples, as specified in Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, 
February 16, 1994).
    The delegation is not approved to apply on any Indian reservation 
land or in any other area where the EPA or an Indian tribe has 
demonstrated that a tribe has jurisdiction. In those areas of Indian 
country, the rule does not have tribal implications as specified by 
Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), nor will it 
impose substantial direct costs on tribal governments or preempt tribal 
law.
    This action also does not have Federalism implications because it 
does 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 the various levels of 
government, as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 
10, 1999). This action merely approves a state request to receive 
delegation of certain Federal standards, and does not alter the 
relationship or the distribution of power and responsibilities 
established in the Clean Air Act. This rule also is not subject to 
Executive Order 13045 ``Protection of Children from Environmental 
Health Risks and Safety Risks'' (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), because 
it is not economically significant.
    In reviewing delegation submissions, EPA's role is to approve 
submissions, provided that they meet the criteria of the Clean Air Act. 
This action is not subject to the 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. This rule does not impose an information collection 
burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 
U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).
    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 rule 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.
