On March 1, 2012, EPA fully approved the California State Implementation Plans (SIPs) for attainment of the 1997 8-hour ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) in the San Joaquin Valley and South Coast (Los Angeles) Air Basin and included provisions of these SIPs in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 40 CFR 52.220(c). See 77 FR 12652 (March 1, 2012) and 77 FR 12674 (March 1, 2012). As submitted, these SIPs include commitments by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to propose certain defined measures.

In the preamble to our final action approving the San Joaquin Valley's 8-Hour Ozone SIP, we stated that we are approving “CARB's commitments to propose certain defined measures, as listed in Table B-1 on page 1 of Appendix B of the 2011 Progress Report and in Appendix A-3 of the 2011 Ozone SIP Revisions.” See 77 FR 12652 at 12670. We proposed the same at 76 FR 557846, 57867 (September 16, 2011). EPA did not, however, accurately codify this approval in the final regulatory text. We are issuing this technical amendment to 40 CFR 52.220 to correct this oversight. This technical amendment makes no changes to the substance of our March 1, 2012 approval of the SJV 8-Hour Ozone SIP.
In the preamble to our final action approving the South Coast 8-Hour Ozone SIP, we stated that we are approving “CARB's commitments to propose certain defined measures, as listed in Appendix B, Table B-1 of the 2011 Ozone SIP Revision.”
