Notice of Proposed Rule
DAR File No.: 37583
Filed: 05/02/2013 11:32:17 AM
Purpose of the rule or reason for the change:
On 08/12/2012, the EPA promulgated new source performance standards (NSPS) for the oil and gas sector. In order for these new standards to be enforceable at the state level, they need to be incorporated into the Division of Air Quality (DAQ) rules.
Summary of the rule or change:
The "Oil and Gas Sector: New Source Performance Standards" in 40 CFR 60.17, 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart KKK, 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart LLL, and 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart OOOO, promulgated by the EPA on August 16, 2012 in 77 FR 49490 are incorporated by reference.
State statutory or constitutional authorization for this rule:
- Section 19-2-108
- Subsection 19-2-104(3)(q)
This rule or change incorporates by reference the following material:
- Updates 77 FR 49490, published by National Archives and Records Administration's Office of the Federal Register, 08/16/2012
Anticipated cost or savings to:
the state budget:
There may be an additional cost to DAQ to enforce the standards for sources that are currently inspected; however, any costs should be minimal and should not result in any additional costs to the state budget. Because new sources are subject to these standards, there may be additional costs to enforce the standards in the future, but the potential increase is currently unknown, especially for smaller sources that are not permitted by DAQ.
There are no new requirements for local government; therefore, there are no anticipated costs or savings.
These provisions are already in place and federally enforceable. Any small business to which this rule might apply already should be complying with this rule; therefore, there are no anticipated costs or savings.
persons other than small businesses, businesses, or local governmental entities:
These provisions are already in place and federally enforceable. Any person other than small businesses, businesses, or local government entities to which this rule might apply already should be complying with this rule; therefore, there are no anticipated costs or savings.
Compliance costs for affected persons:
Because the provisions of this rule are already federally enforceable, affected persons should already be in compliance with it. There are no additional compliance costs associated with incorporating the new standards into the DAQ rules.
Comments by the department head on the fiscal impact the rule may have on businesses:
Because the provisions of this rule are already federally enforceable, businesses should already be in compliance with it. DAQ anticipates no fiscal impact associated with incorporating the new standards into the DAQ rules.
