Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Subsection 19-2-109.1(4)(a) directs the Air Quality Board to "establish a proposed annual emissions fee that conforms with Title V of the 1990 Clean Air Act for each ton of regulated pollutant, applicable to all sources required to obtain a permit." Section 19-2-104 also allows the Board to promulgate rules that control, abate, and prevent air pollution from all sources. Rule R307-415 controls, abates, and prevents air pollution by establishing an emissions fee and requiring permits for air pollution under the Title V permitting program in the Clean Air Act.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

There were no comments received on this rule since the 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 R307-415 is required by Title V of the Clean Air Act; 40 CFR Part 70; and Section 19-2-109.1 of the Utah Code. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
