(Air Pollution Control Board; 326 IAC 2-1.1-7.5; filed Sep 28, 2011, 10:56 a.m.: 20111026-IR-326070286FRA)


SECTION 3. 326 IAC 2-7-19 IS AMENDED TO READ AS FOLLOWS:

326 IAC 2-7-19 Fees

Authority: IC 13-14-8; IC 13-17


Sec. 19. (a) Owners or operators of Part 70 sources are required to pay annual fees as established by 326 IAC 2-1.1-7 and this rule. However, the commissioner shall reduce the fee established by this rule by the following:
(1) Fifty percent (50%) for fees assessed in calendar year 1994.
(2) Twenty-five percent (25%) for fees assessed in calendar year 1995. Prior to issuance of a Part 70 permit, or a FESOP permit, the source is subject to the fees established in this rule. unless notification is provided under 326 IAC 2-8-16(d).

(b) A source shall pay the annual fee within thirty (30) calendar days of receipt of a billing by the department. The department shall bill each source no later than July 31, 1994, and no later than February 1 in subsequent years. of each year. A source which that begins operation for the first time in a given year shall be billed on a prorated basis by determining the number of complete months remaining in the calendar year and dividing by twelve (12) to determine the percent of the annual fee due to the department. If a source subject to this rule or 326 IAC 2-8 does not receive a bill from the department, the applicable fee must be submitted to the department prior to September 1 in 1994, and by April 1 of any subsequent that year. If an annual fee is being paid under a fee schedule established under IC 13-16-2-1, the fee shall be paid in accordance with that schedule. Establishment of a fee payment schedule must be consistent with the provisions of IC 13-16-2-1, including the determination that:
(1) a single payment of the entire fee is an undue hardship on the person; and that
(2) the department is not required to assess installments separately.

(c) Each Part 70 source shall pay a base fee of one thousand five hundred dollars ($1,500) and shall pay an additional annual fee of thirty-three dollars ($33) per ton for each ton of regulated air pollutant emitted, provided that no source shall pay more than one hundred fifty thousand dollars ($150,000) or, if a source emits more than one hundred (100) tons per year of NOx and more than one hundred (100) tons per year of VOC and is located in an area designated as serious or severe nonattainment for ozone in accordance with the CAA, the source shall pay no more than two hundred thousand dollars ($200,000). During the years of 1994 through 1999 inclusive, any affected unit under Section 404 of the CAA shall be exempted from the fees established under this section. Municipal solid waste incinerators subject to 326 IAC 2-1.1-7(5)(E) shall be exempt from the fees established under this section. 326 IAC 2-1.1-7(d)(4). The annual emission statement submitted during the previous calendar year required by 326 IAC 2-6 or section 5(3)(C)(iii) of this rule and other available information shall be the basis for determining total tons of actual emissions of each regulated pollutant. The commissioner may require that the source report annual emissions using procedures acceptable to the commissioner prior to billing, if:
(1) an annual emission report is not required; or if
(2) more information is needed to accurately determine a source's emissions for a regulated pollutant.
the commissioner may require that the source report annual emissions using procedures acceptable to the commissioner prior to billing.

(d) The commissioner shall exclude from the fee calculation the following:
(1) The amount of a Part 70 source's actual emission of each regulated pollutant that the source emits in excess of four thousand (4,000) tons per year.
(2) Emissions for which a fee is due in accordance with 326 IAC 2-1.1-7, except for emissions from coke plants subject to 40 CFR 63, Subpart L*.

(e) (d) After review of the source's annual emission statement and all other available information, the commissioner shall calculate the total emissions to be included in the determination of the annual fee. No source shall be required to pay more than a single dollar-per-ton fee during any billing period for any one (1) ton of pollutant emitted. If the source disputes the calculation of total emissions at the time of the billing, the source shall remit the total fee minus the amount attributable to the disputed emissions total within thirty (30) days of the receipt of a billing. The source shall provide supporting emissions calculations for the commissioner's review no later than thirty (30) days from receipt of the initial billing. The commissioner shall review the information and make a final determination of the total annual fee. The source shall pay any remaining fee within fifteen (15) days of receipt of a second billing. The commissioner's determination of a final fee amount is a final action for purposes of IC 4-21.5.

(f) (e) The commissioner shall adjust the base fee, the cost per ton of emissions fee, and the maximum fee annually by the Consumer Price Index (CPI) using the revision of the CPI which is most consistent with the CPI for the calendar year 1995. Beginning in 1996, Part 70 fees in accordance with 326 IAC 2-1.1-7(b)(1). In the event that the revenues collected in a given calendar year are insufficient to support the direct and indirect costs of the Title V operating permit program, the commissioner may adjust the fee schedule as necessary to assure adequate revenues, not to exceed thirteen million seven hundred thousand dollars ($13,700,000) (adjusted by CPI), are collected. The commissioner shall include the full balance of the Title V operating permit program trust fund in determining whether the available funds for the billing year total thirteen million seven hundred thousand dollars ($13,700,000) (adjusted by CPI). Prior to making any such fee adjustment, the commissioner shall:
(1) prepare a report demonstrating:
(A) the revenue shortfall;
(B) the need for additional resources to effectively implement the Part 70 permit program; and
(C) any proposed adjustment to the fee schedule; and shall
(2) make the report available to the public at least sixty (60) days in advance of a regularly scheduled meeting of the air pollution control board, at which the report shall be discussed and affirmed by a majority vote of the board members present.
Upon a determination by the commissioner that a fee adjustment is necessary, Part 70 sources shall be billed for the adjustment during the billing cycle following such determination.

(g) Beginning in 1996, (f) The commissioner shall review the monies in the Title V operating permit trust fund prior to billing Part 70 and FESOP sources. If the balance of the fund, once obligated expenditures are subtracted from the balance, exceeds three million dollars ($3,000,000) as of July 1 of the billing year, the commissioner shall adjust the annual fee schedule to bill an amount, in the aggregate, equivalent to the fee schedule amount, less the excess over three million dollars ($3,000,000). Adjustments to individual bills shall be proportional to the applicable fee divided by the total amount required by all the applicable fees.

(h) (g) The commissioner shall present a report to the air pollution control board by October 15 of each calendar year. beginning in 1995. The report shall include the following information regarding the permit program required by this rule:
(1) The number of sources subject to the requirements of this rule.
(2) The number of permit applications received by the department.
(3) The number and timeliness of final permit actions taken the previous year.
(4) A summary of expenditures and revenues to the Title V operating permit program trust fund for the previous year.
(5) The adequacy of the fees collected by the department to fund the Part 70 permit program.
(6) A description of any monies deposited into the Title V operating permit program trust fund that were obtained by means other than fees paid under this section or 326 IAC 2-8-16. 326 IAC 2-1.1-7(d) through 326 IAC 2-1.1-7(g). The description shall document that such the revenues were not used to cover any direct or indirect costs of the Title V operating permit program.
Based on the report, the board may recommend that the commissioner prepare revisions to the annual fee schedule such that the annual aggregate amount of fees collected under the operating permit program is sufficient to cover only the direct and indirect costs of the permit program.

(i) (h) A fee schedule established in subsection (c) may be billed in whole or in part by a local air pollution control agency per terms of an enforceable written agreement or contract between the local air agency and the commissioner. Any Part 70 fee paid to a local air agency shall be considered as revenue to the Title V operating permit trust fund and may, after U.S. EPA approval of the Part 70 permit program, only be expended for purposes consistent with IC 13-17-8-2 through IC 13-17-8-9. A local air agency billing to a Part 70 source shall:
(1) specify the amount being assessed under this section; and shall
(2) distinguish any other amount billed as not pursuant to the purposes of IC 13-17-8-2 through IC 13-17-8-9 under an enforceable agreement with the commissioner.
The commissioner or local air agency may direct the source to make payment of fees established under this section in part to both the department and the local air agency such that the total Part 70 permit program fee does not exceed the amount in subsection (c). During 1994, the commissioner may defer to billing of a local air agency if the total billing for all Part 70 sources exceeds the total amount due under this section if specified in an enforceable agreement between the local air agency and the commissioner. During 1994, the commissioner may assess a fee not to exceed twenty-five percent (25%) of the local agency fee in order to recover costs associated with development and preparation of a complete statewide Part 70 operating permit program for activities that will not be duplicated by the local air agency if it is determined that the local air agency fees collected from Part 70 and FESOP permittees do not provide adequate revenue for the local agency to develop and prepare the Title V operating permit program at a pace comparable to state development and preparation.

(2) the department is not required to assess installments separately.
For sources that submit an application for a FESOP after December 31, 1995, a source that has been issued a FESOP shall not be assessed an annual operating fee in the billing cycle immediately following issuance of the FESOP, but shall be assessed the annual operating fee in subsequent billing cycles.

(c) The commissioner shall adjust the FESOP fees described in subsection (b) each year by the Consumer Price Index (CPI). The revision of the CPI which is most consistent with the CPI for the calendar year 1995 shall be used. in accordance with 326 IAC 2-1.1-7(b)(1).

(d) A source that notifies the department during the calendar year 1994 or 1995 of its intent to file a FESOP application is not subject to the fee schedule contained in 326 IAC 2-7-19. The source must continue to pay fees under 326 IAC 2-1.1-7 until an application for a FESOP is made by the applicant or until a permit application is required to be submitted under 326 IAC 2-7. If a FESOP is not approved by the commissioner prior to the requirement that a Part 70 operating permit application be submitted, the source may be billed for the applicable fee under 326 IAC 2-7-19 for the calendar years 1994 and 1995 and subsequent years until a FESOP is issued. A source that applies for a FESOP at least nine (9) months in advance of the requirement to apply for a Part 70 permit is not subject to the 326 IAC 2-7-19 fee schedule until the commissioner makes a final determination on the FESOP application or a final Part 70 permit is issued for the source.

(e) Beginning in 1996, The commissioner shall review the monies in the Title V operating permit trust fund prior to billing Part 70 sources and FESOP sources. If the balance of the fund, once obligated expenditures are subtracted from the balance, exceeds three million dollars ($3,000,000) as of July 1 of the billing year, the department shall adjust the annual fee schedule for Part 70 and FESOP sources to bill an aggregate less than the total fee schedule amount equivalent to the amount in excess of three million dollars ($3,000,000). Adjustments to individual bills shall be proportional to the applicable fee divided by the total amount required by all the applicable fees.

(f) A fee established under this section may be billed in whole or in part by a local air pollution control agency under terms of an enforceable written agreement or contract between the local air agency and the commissioner. Any FESOP fee paid to a local air agency shall be considered as revenue to the Title V operating permit trust fund and after the effective date of approval by the U.S. EPA of the Part 70 permit program may only be expended for purposes consistent with IC 13-17-8-2 through IC 13-17-8-9. A local air agency billing to a FESOP source shall:
(1) specify the amount being assessed under this section; and shall
(2) distinguish any other amount billed as not pursuant to the purposes of IC 13-17-8-2 through IC 13-17-8-9 under an enforceable agreement with the commissioner.
The commissioner or local air agency may direct the source to make payment of fees established under this rule in part to both the department and local air agency such that the total FESOP fee does not exceed the amount in this rule. During 1994, the department may defer to billing of a local air agency if the total billings for all FESOP sources exceed the total amount due under this rule if specified in an enforceable agreement between the local air agency and the department. The department may assess a fee not to exceed twenty-five percent (25%) of the local fee in order to recover costs associated with development and preparation of a complete statewide Title V operating permit program for activities that will not be duplicated by the local air agency if it is determined that the local air agency fees collected from Part 70 and FESOP permittees do not provide adequate revenues for the local agency to develop and prepare for the Title V operating permit program at a pace comparable to state development and preparation.
