Revision to the New York State Implementation Plan: 6 NYCRR Part 218, "Emission Standards for Motor Vehicles and Motor Vehicle Engines" and 6 NYCRR Part 200, "General Provisions"

Notice is hereby given that the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) plans to submit a State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA).

On September 15, 2016, NYS DEC adopted amendments to 6 New York Codes, Rules and Regulations (NYCRR) Part 218, Emission Standards for Motor Vehicles and Motor Vehicle Engines. There were also attendant revisions to 6 NYCRR Part 200, General Provisions. A public hearing on the proposal was held on August 8, 2016 and public comments on the proposal were accepted until August 15, 2016.

NYS DEC plans to submit 6 NYCRR Part 218, Emission Standards for Motor Vehicles and Motor Vehicle Engines, and attendant revisions to 6 NYCRR Part 200, General Provisions, as adopted on September 15, 2016, to US EPA as a SIP revision. The version of 6 NYCRR Part 218 and 6 NYCRR Part 200 currently approved in the SIP has an effective date of December 28, 2000 (with the exception of 6 NYCRR Subpart 218-4 with an effective date of May 28, 1992). Nine revisions to 6 NYCRR Part 218 and 6 NYCRR Part 200 occurred between December 28, 2000 and September 15, 2016; none of them were submitted to US EPA as SIP revisions. In order to revise the SIP to incorporate the September 15, 2016 version of 6 NYCRR Part 218 and attendant revisions of 6 NYCRR Part 200 in their entirety, rulemaking documents for every intermittent version must be submitted to US EPA as verification that proper administrative rulemaking procedures were followed. However, the final outcome will be that 6 NYCRR Part 218 and attendant revisions to 6 NYCRR Part 200, as adopted on September 15, 2016, will be incorporated into the SIP. No other version will be incorporated into the SIP.

Rulemaking documents for 6 NYCRR Part 218 and 6 NYCRR Part 200 with effective dates of October 30, 2002, December 16, 2004, December 22, 2005, May 6, 2010, July 8, 2010, December 5, 2010, December 9, 2012, December 9, 2015 and October 19, 2016 will be submitted to US EPA as part of this SIP revision. Rulemaking documents to be submitted (if applicable and available) are Express Terms as Proposed; Express Terms as Adopted; Notice of Proposed Rulemaking as published in the New York State Register and the Environmental Notice Bulletin; Notice of Public Hearing as published in the New York State Register and the Environmental Notice Bulletin; Proofs of Publication of the Notice of Public Hearing as published in newspapers; Hearing Report(s); Hearing Transcript(s); Assessment of Public Comments; Certificate of Adoption; and Notice of Adoption as published in the New York State Register and the Environmental Notice Bulletin.

NYS DEC is providing a 30 day period for the public to comment on the proposed SIP revision or to request a hearing. Written comments or requests for a public hearing should be submitted by 5:00 p.m. on May 30, 2017 to: Robert D. Bielawa, NYSDEC - Division of Air Resources, 625 Broadway, 11th Floor, Albany, NY 12233-3251, or by e-mail to: dar.sips@dec.ny.gov. Robert D. Bielawa can be reached at (518) 402-8396 with any questions regarding this SIP revision.

Bielawa, NYSDEC - Division of Air Resources, 625 Broadway, 11th Floor, Albany, NY 12233-3251, Phone: (518) 402-8396, or by (2) e-mailing a request to: dar.sips@dec.ny.gov.
