[EPA-R06-OAR-2016-0091; FRL-9975-92-Region 6]


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

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

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 
delegation of authority under this action does not apply to sources 
located in Bernalillo County, New Mexico or to sources located in 
Indian Country. The EPA is providing notice that it is updating the 
delegation of certain NSPS to NMED and proposing to approve the 
delegation of certain NESHAP to NMED.

DATES: Written comments should be received on or before May 14, 2018.

OAR-2016-0091, at http://www.regulations.gov or via email to

comments see the detailed instructions in the ADDRESSES section of the

Federal Register.

7227; email: barrett.richard@epa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the final rules section of this issue of 
the Federal Register, the EPA is approving NMED's request for 
delegation of authority to implement and enforce certain NSPS and 
NESHAP for all sources (both Title V and non-Title V sources). NMED has 
adopted certain NSPS and NESHAP by reference into New Mexico's state 
regulations. In addition, the EPA is waiving certain notification 
requirements required by the delegated standards so that sources will 
only need to notify and report to NMED, thereby avoiding duplicative 
notification and reporting to the EPA.
    The EPA is taking direct final action without prior proposal 
because the EPA views this as a noncontroversial action and anticipates 
no relevant adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is 
set forth in the direct final rule. If no relevant adverse comments are 
received in response to this action, no further activity is 
contemplated. If the EPA receives relevant adverse comments, the direct 
final rule will be withdrawn, and all public comments received will be 
addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. The 
EPA will not institute a second comment period. Any parties interested 
in commenting should do so at this time.
    For additional information, see the direct final rule which is 
located in the rules section of this issue of the Federal Register.
