In this rulemaking, provisions are being added for an alternative to the existing Part 75 monitoring and reporting requirements. DAPC also performed a review of these rules to fulfill the requirements of Ohio Revised Code (ORC) 106.03 (5-yr review). Upon review, DAPC determined that the above listed rules were necessary and made minor changes to fix typos and formatting errors in addition to the changes discussed above. Pursuant to Section 121.39 of the Ohio Revised Code, DAPC was required to consult with interested parties affected by the rules before the Division formally adopts them. On January 5, 2018 (3745-14-01,-04,-08) and February 28, 2019 (3745-14-11,-12) these rules went out for a 30-day review by interested parties.

Pursuant to Part D of Title I of the Clean Air Act (CAA), Ohio EPA is required to establish a SIP for the attainment and maintenance of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). The above-mentioned rules are a part of Ohio's SIP and the proposed amendments will be submitted to USEPA as a modification of the SIP. This SIP action requires a demonstration pursuant to CAA section 110(l) that the action will not interfere with attainment of the NAAQS, reasonable further progress toward attainment, or any other applicable requirement of the Clean Air Act. Ohio EPA's draft 110(l) demonstration is also being made available for comment. Pursuant to Section 106.03 and 106.031 of the Ohio Revised Code, a public hearing on these rule changes and SIP revision will be conducted on Tuesday, July 16, 2019 at 10:30 AM at Ohio EPA, Lazarus Government Center, 50 W.
