Rulemaking To Affirm Interim Amendments to Dates in Federal Implementation Plans Addressing Interstate Transport of Ozone and Fine Particulate MatterRule2016-0488903/14/2016Environmental Protection AgencyThe Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is affirming and making permanent certain amendments previously made on an interim basis to the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) provisions implementing the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSA … The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is affirming and making permanent certain amendments previously made on an interim basis to the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) provisions implementing the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR). The purpose of the interim amendments was to correctly reflect CSAPR's compliance deadlines as revised by the effect of the action of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit (D.C. Circuit or Court) granting the EPA's motion to lift the previous stay of CSAPR and delay (toll) its deadlines by three years. Consistent with the Court's order, the interim amendments corrected the CFR text to indicate that CSAPR's Phase 1 emissions budgets apply in 2015 and 2016 and that CSAPR's Phase 2 emissions budgets and assurance provisions apply in 2017 and beyond. The interim amendments similarly corrected dates in the CFR text related to specific activities required or permitted under CSAPR by regulated sources, the EPA, and states, as well as dates related to the sunsetting of obligations arising under the Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) upon its replacement by CSAPR. In this action, following consideration of comments received on the interim amendments, the EPA is affirming the interim amendments and making them permanent without change. This action is independent of a separate currently pending EPA proposal to update CSAPR to address the 2008 National Ambient Air Quality Standards for ozone.rulemaking-to-affirm-interim-amendments-to-dates-in-federal-implementation-plans-addressingFR-Doc-2016-04889

Cross-State Air Pollution Rule Update for the 2008 Ozone NAAQSProposed Rule2015-2979612/03/2015Environmental Protection AgencyThe primary purpose of this proposal is to address interstate air quality impacts with respect to the 2008 ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). The EPA promulgated the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR) on July … The primary purpose of this proposal is to address interstate air quality impacts with respect to the 2008 ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). The EPA promulgated the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR) on July 6, 2011, to address interstate transport of ozone pollution under the 1997 ozone NAAQS and fine particulate matter (PM2.5) under the 1997 and 2006 PM2.5 NAAQS. The EPA is proposing to update CSAPR to address interstate emission transport with respect to the 2008 ozone NAAQS. This proposal also responds to the July 28, 2015 remand by the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit of certain states' ozone-season nitrogen oxides (NOX) emissions budgets established by CSAPR. This proposal also updates the status of certain states' outstanding interstate ozone transport obligations with respect to the 1997 ozone NAAQS, for which CSAPR provided a partial remedy. This proposal finds that ozone season emissions of NOX in 23 eastern states affect the ability of downwind states to attain and maintain the 2008 ozone NAAQS. These emissions can be transported downwind as NOX or, after transformation in the atmosphere, as ozone. For these 23 eastern states, the EPA proposes to issue Federal Implementation Plans (FIPs) that generally update the existing CSAPR NOX ozone-season emissions budgets for electricity generating units (EGUs) and implement these budgets via the CSAPR NOX ozone-season allowance trading program. The EPA would finalize a FIP for any state that does not have an approved SIP addressing its contribution by the date this rule is finalized. The EPA is proposing implementation starting with the 2017 ozone season. In conjunction with other federal and state actions, these requirements would assist downwind states in the eastern United States in attaining and maintaining the 2008 ozone standard.cross-state-air-pollution-rule-update-for-the-2008-ozone-naaqsFR-Doc-2015-29796

Circuit or Court) granting the EPA's motion to lift the previous stay of CSAPR and delay (toll) its deadlines by three years. With these ministerial amendments, the CFR text will correctly indicate that CSAPR's Phase 1 emissions budgets apply in 2015 and 2016 and that CSAPR's Phase 2 emissions budgets and assurance provisions apply in 2017 and beyond. The ministerial amendments similarly correct dates in the CFR text related to specific activities required or permitted under CSAPR by regulated sources, the EPA, and states, as well as dates related to the sunsetting of the Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) upon its replacement by CSAPR. The amendments are necessary to clarify the timing of requirements and elections under CSAPR as shown in the CFR text so that compliance can begin in an orderly manner on January 1, 2015, consistent with the Court's order. The EPA is also taking comment on the amendments being made in this interim final rule and will consider whether to retain these revisions as promulgated or whether further revisions are necessary to make the CSAPR compliance deadlines consistent with the Court's order.rulemaking-to-amend-dates-in-federal-implementation-plans-addressing-interstate-transport-of-ozoneFR-Doc-2014-28286
Availability of Data on Allocations of Cross-State Air Pollution Rule Allowances to Existing Electricity Generating UnitsRule2014-2828112/03/2014Environmental Protection AgencyThrough this notice of data availability (NODA), the EPA is providing notice of allocations of emission allowances to certain units for compliance with the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR). Since its original promulgation, CSAPR … Through this notice of data availability (NODA), the EPA is providing notice of allocations of emission allowances to certain units for compliance with the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR). Since its original promulgation, CSAPR has been amended in several subsequent rulemakings and its compliance deadlines have been tolled by three years pursuant to an order of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit (D.C. Circuit or Court). These allowance allocations, which supersede the allocations announced in a 2011 NODA, reflect the changes to CSAPR made in those subsequent rulemakings as well as ``re- vintaging'' of previously recorded allowances so as to account for the impact of tolling of the rule's deadlines. The allocations apply only to units that commenced commercial operation before 2010 and only to the extent that states do not provide alternative allowance allocations following procedures set out in the rule. A spreadsheet containing both the allowance allocations and the data upon which the allocations are based has been posted on the EPA's Web site.availability-of-data-on-allocations-of-cross-state-air-pollution-rule-allowances-to-existingFR-Doc-2014-28281
