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 states that "Notice shall be given to the director by any person planning to construct a new installation which will or might reasonably be expected to be a source or indirect source of air pollution or to make modifications to an existing installation which will or might reasonably be expected to increase the amount of or change the character or effect of air contaminants discharged." Rule R307-405 implements the federal Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) permitting program for major sources and major modifications in attainment areas and maintenance areas as required by 40 CFR 51.166. Subsection 19-2-104(3)(q) states that the Air Quality Board may meet the requirements of federal laws. Rule R307-405 is also required by Section VIII, Prevention of Significant Deterioration of the State Implementation Plan. This plan is required under Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. 7410 and 40 CFR 51.166.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
R307-405 has been amended one time since the last five-year review. DAR No. 39846 amended this rule to align it with federal regulations that withdrew five Title V sources that were identified as greenhouse gas sources. No comments were received for these amendments, and no other comments have been received 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 R307-405 is required by Section 19-2-108. Rule R307-405 is also required by Section VIII, Prevention of Significant Deterioration of the State Implementation Plan, which is incorporated by reference under R307-110. This plan is required under Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. 7410 and 40 CFR 51.166. Without this plan, Environmental Protection Agency would be required to impose a federal implementation plan.
