NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION
Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:
Section 19-2-108 requires a person to give notice to the director if the person is planning to "construct a new installation which will or might reasonably be expected to increase the amount of or change the character or effect of air pollutants discharged." Rule R307-401 sets forth the requirements that the owner or operator of a source of air pollution must address in giving notice to the executive secretary under Section 19-2-108. The Air Quality Board is able to adopt rules that implement Section 19-2-108 because Section 19-2-104 gives the Board the power to control, abate, and prevent air pollution from all sources. A notice requirement and its implementation is a necessary part of controlling, abating, and preventing air pollution. Rule R307-401 is also required by Section II, Review of New and Modified Air Pollution Sources, of the State Implementation Plan (SIP). This SIP is required under Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. 7410 and 40 CFR 51.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
No comments have been received about this rule since its last five-year review.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
Rule R307-401 is required by Section 19-2-108 and is also required by Section II, Review of New and Modified Air Pollution Sources, of the State Implementation Plan (SIP), which is incorporated by reference under Rule R307-110. This SIP is required under Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. 7410 and 40 CFR 51 subpart I. Without the SIP, EPA would be required to impose a federal implementation plan. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
