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 19-2-104 allows the Air Quality Board to promulgate rules that control, abate, and prevent air pollution from all sources. Rule R307-417 does this by preventing air pollution that contributes to acid rain through an air pollution permitting program. The rule incorporates by reference the federal requirements in 40 CFR Part 72 into Utah's air quality rules for the purpose of meeting the requirements of Title IV of 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:
The rule incorporates by reference the federal requirements in 40 CFR Part 72 into Utah's air quality rules for the purpose of meeting the requirements of Title IV of the Clean Air Act. By incorporating the federal requirements into the state rules, Utah is able to implement and enforce its own acid rain program. Without this rule, the EPA would have the sole authority to implement the program in Utah. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
