ACTION: Immediate final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: North Dakota has applied to EPA for Final authorization of changes to its hazardous waste program under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). EPA has determined that these changes satisfy all requirements for Final authorization and is authorizing the State’s changes through this immediate Final action. EPA is publishing this rule to authorize the changes without a prior proposed rule because we believe this action is not controversial. Unless we get written comments opposing this authorization during the comment period, the decision to authorize North Dakota’s changes to their hazardous waste program will take effect as provided below. If we receive comments that oppose this action, we will publish a document in the Federal Register withdrawing this rule before it takes effect. A separate document in the proposed rules section of this Federal Register will serve as the proposal to authorize the State’s changes. DATES: We must receive your comments by October 26, 2005. Unless EPA receives comments that oppose this action, this Final authorization approval will become effective without further notice on November 25, 2005. ADDRESSES: Submit your comments by one of the following methods: 1. Federal eRulemaking Portal: http:// www.regulations.gov. Follow the on-line instructions for submitting comments. 2.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 * * A. Why are revisions to state programs necessary? States that have received final authorization from EPA under RCRA Section 3006(b), 42 U.S.C. 6926(b), must maintain a hazardous waste program equivalent to, consistent with, and no less stringent than the Federal program. As the Federal program changes, States must change their programs and ask EPA to authorize their changes. Changes to State programs may be necessary when Federal or State statutory or regulatory authority is modified or when certain other changes occur. Most commonly, States must change their programs because of changes to EPA’s regulations in 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) parts 124, 260 through 266, 268, 270, 273 and 279. B. What decisions have we made in this rule? We conclude that North Dakota’s application to revise its authorized program meets all of the statutory and regulatory requirements established by RCRA. Therefore, we grant North Dakota Final authorization to operate its hazardous waste program with the changes described in the authorization application. North Dakota has responsibility for permitting Treatment, Storage, and Disposal Facilities (TSDFs) within its borders, except in Indian country, and for carrying out those portions of the RCRA program described in its revised program application, subject to the limitations of the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984 (HSWA). New Federal requirements and prohibitions imposed by Federal regulations that EPA promulgates under the authority of HSWA take effect in authorized States before they are authorized for the requirements. Thus, EPA will implement those requirements and prohibitions in North Dakota, including issuing permits, until North Dakota is authorized to do so. C. What is the effect of today’s authorization decision? The effect of this decision is that facilities in North Dakota subject to E:\FR\FM\26SER1.SGM 26SER1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 185 / Monday, September 26, 2005 / Rules and Regulations RCRA will now have to comply with the authorized State requirements instead of the equivalent Federal requirements. North Dakota has primary enforcement responsibility under its state hazardous waste program for violations of the program, but EPA retains its authority under RCRA sections 3007, 3008, 3013, and 7003, which include, among others, the authority to conduct inspections and require monitoring, tests, analyses, or reports; and enforce RCRA requirements and suspend or revoke permits. This action does not impose additional requirements on the regulated community because the regulations for which North Dakota is being authorized are already effective and are not changed by today’s action. D. Why wasn’t there a proposed rule before today’s rule? EPA did not publish a proposal before today’s rule because this action is a routine program change, and we do not expect comments opposing this approval. We are providing an opportunity for public comment at this time. In addition, in the proposed rules section of today’s Federal Register, there is a separate document that proposes to authorize the State program changes. If we receive comments opposing this authorization, that document will serve as a proposal to authorize the changes. E. What happens if EPA receives comments opposing this action? If EPA receives comments opposing this authorization, we will withdraw this rule by publishing a notice in the Federal Register before the rule becomes effective. We then will address all public comments in a later Federal Register. You may not have another opportunity to comment. If you want to comment on this action, you must do so at this time. If we receive comments opposing authorization of only a particular change to the State hazardous waste program, we will withdraw that part of the rule. However, the authorization of program changes that are not opposed by any comments will become effective on the date specified above. The Federal Register withdrawal document will specify which part of the authorization will become effective and which part is being withdrawn. F. What has North Dakota previously been authorized for? North Dakota initially received Final authorization on October 5, 1984, effective October 19, 1984 (49 FR 39328) to implement the RCRA hazardous waste management program. We granted VerDate Aug<31>2005 12:27 Sep 23, 2005 Jkt 205001 authorization for changes to their program on June 25, 1990, effective August 24, 1990 (55 FR 25836), May 4, 1992, effective July 6, 1992 (57 FR 19087), April 7, 1994, effective June 6, 1994 (59 FR 16566), and January 19, 2000, effective March 20, 2000 (65 FR 02897). G. What changes are we authorizing with today’s action? On June 2, 2004, September 2, 2004 and October 26, 2004, North Dakota submitted final revision applications, seeking authorization of program changes in accordance with 40 CFR 271.21. We now make an immediate final decision, subject to receipt of written comments opposing this action, that North Dakota’s hazardous waste program revision satisfies all of the requirements necessary for Final authorization. Therefore, we propose to grant North Dakota final authorization for the following program changes (the Federal Citation followed by the analog from the North Dakota Administrative Code (NDAC), Article 33–24, as revised December 1, 2003, unless otherwise indicated: Delisting—(54 FR 27114, 06/ 27/89)(Checklist 17B.1)/changes to 40 CFR 260.22(b) only at 33–24–01.08.2 (ND was previously authorized for Checklist 17B (excluding 40 CFR 260.22(b)) on 06/25/90, effective 08/24/ 1990 at 55 FR 25836);

H. Where are the revised state rules different from the Federal rules? We consider the following State requirements to be more stringent than the Federal requirements: 33–24–01– 04.27, because the State does not allow a closed or closing unit to be designated as a corrective action management unit; 33–24–02–04.2.i, because the State excludes only discarded wood or wood products that fail for the Toxic Characteristic Leaching Procedure for arsenic while Federal rules exclude discarded wood or wood products that fail for Hazardous Waste Codes D004 through D017; 33–24–03–12.1.a(1), because North Dakota subjects containers to full status rather than interim status standards; 33–24–03– 12.1.a(2), because North Dakota subjects tanks to full status rather than interim status standards; 33–24–03–12.1.a(1), because North Dakota subjects containment buildings to full status rather than interim status standards; 33– 24–03–12.1.d, because the State requires that facilities be designed, constructed, maintained, and operated to minimize the potential for fires, explosions, or any unplanned releases and because the State requires that the facility demonstrate that a particular kind of equipment will not be required; 33–24– 05–01.2, because the State does not allow for interim status facilities; 33– 24–05–04.1.a, because the State does not allow owners/operators of closed landfills to accept non-hazardous waste under certain conditions; 33–24–05– 256.2.e.(3), because the State does not allow a treatment facility with interim status units to treat hazardous waste; 33–24–05–281.2, because the State does not differentiate between high and low zinc non-wastewater (K061 wastes); 33– E:\FR\FM\26SER1.SGM 26SER1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 185 / Monday, September 26, 2005 / Rules and Regulations 24–05–282.1.b and 33–24–05–282.1, Table 1, because the State does not allow a treatment facility with interim status units to treat hazardous waste; 33–24–05–282.3.a, because the State does not allow a treatment facility with interim status units to treat hazardous waste; 33–24–05–282.3.c, because the State does not allow lab packs eligible for land disposal to be disposed at interim status landfills; 33–24–05– 283.3.a, because the State does not allow a treatment facility with interim status units to treat hazardous waste; 33–24–05–552.2.a.1 and 2.b, because the State does not have an analog to 40 CFR 265.113 for interim facilities; 33–24–05– 739.3.c, because the state automatically extends the record retention period during any unresolved enforcement action; 33–24–05–752.3 because the state requires universal waste transporters to comply with the solid waste transporter permit requirements of 33–20–02.1–01; 33–24–05–753.3 and .4, because the state has record keeping and retention requirements; 33–24–06– 33.6, because the State requires any facility with an effective remedial action plan to submit a new application at least 180 days before expiration date of the current plan; North Dakota does not have an equivalent to 40 CFR 145(f)(9) making the State more stringent. Nevertheless, these requirements are part of North Dakota’s authorized program and are Federally enforceable. We also consider the following State requirements to be broader-in-scope than the Federal program at 33–24–06– 14.7.a.(3), because the State has requirements for newly regulated wastes and units that are not required by Federal rules. Broader-in-scope requirements are not part of the authorized program, and EPA cannot enforce them. Although a facility must comply with these requirements in accordance with State law, they are not RCRA requirements. EPA cannot delegate the Federal requirements at 40 CFR 268.5, 268.6, 268.42(b), and 268.44. EPA will continue to implement these requirements. I. Who handles permits after this authorization takes effect? North Dakota will issue and administer permits for all the provisions for which it is authorized. EPA will continue to administer any RCRA hazardous waste permits or portions of permits that we issued prior to the effective date of this authorization. EPA will transfer any pending permit applications, completed permits, or pertinent file information to North Dakota within 30 days of this approval. VerDate Aug<31>2005 12:27 Sep 23, 2005 Jkt 205001 We will not issue any more new permits or new portions of permits for the provisions listed in the Table above after the effective date of this authorization. EPA and North Dakota have agreed to joint permitting and enforcement for those HSWA requirements for which North Dakota is not yet authorized. J. How does today’s action affect Indian country (18 U.S.C. 1151) in North Dakota? North Dakota is not authorized to carry out its hazardous waste program in Indian country, as defined in 18 U.S.C. 1151. This includes, but is not limited to: 1. Lands within the exterior boundaries of the following Indian Reservations located within or abutting the State of North Dakota: a. Fort Totten Indian Reservation b. Fort Berthold Indian Reservation c. Standing Rock Indian Reservation e. Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation 2. Any land held in trust by the U.S. for an Indian tribe, and 3. Any other land, whether on or off a reservation that qualifies as Indian country within the meaning of 18 U.S.C. 1151. Therefore, this program revision does not extend to Indian country where EPA will continue to implement and administer the RCRA program in these lands. K. What is codification and is EPA codifying North Dakota’s hazardous waste program as authorized in this rule? Codification is the process of placing the State’s authorized hazardous waste program statutes and regulations into the Code of Federal Regulations. We do this by referencing the authorized State rules in 40 CFR part 272. We reserve the amendment of 40 CFR part 272, subpart JJ for this authorization of North Dakota’s program until a later date. L. Administrative Requirements The Office of Management and Budget has exempted this action from the requirements of Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993), and therefore this action is not subject to review by OMB. This action authorizes State requirements for the purpose of RCRA 3006 and imposes no additional requirements beyond those imposed by State law. Accordingly, I certify that this action will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.). Because this action authorizes pre-existing requirements under State PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 56137 law and does not impose any additional enforceable duty beyond that required by State law, it does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or uniquely affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–4). For the same reason, this action also does not significantly or uniquely affect the communities of Tribal governments, as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000). This action will not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government, as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999), because it merely authorizes State requirements as part of the State RCRA hazardous waste program without altering the relationship or the distribution of power and responsibilities established by RCRA. This action also is not subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), because it is not economically significant and it does not make decisions based on environmental health or safety risks. This rule is not subject to Executive Order 13211, ‘‘Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use’’ (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001), because it is not a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866. Under RCRA 3006(b), EPA grants a State’s application for authorization as long as the State meets the criteria required by RCRA. It would thus be inconsistent with applicable law for EPA, when it reviews a State authorization application, to require the use of any particular voluntary consensus standard in place of another standard that otherwise satisfies the requirements of RCRA. Thus, the requirements of section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) do not apply. As required by section 3 of Executive Order 12988 (61 FR 4729, February 7, 1996), in issuing this rule, EPA has taken the necessary steps to eliminate drafting errors and ambiguity, minimize potential litigation, and provide a clear legal standard for affected conduct. EPA has complied with Executive Order 12630 (53 FR 8859, March 15, 1988) by examining the takings implications of the rule in accordance with the ‘‘Attorney General’s Supplemental Guidelines for the Evaluation of Risk and Avoidance of Unanticipated Takings’’ issued under the executive order. This rule does not E:\FR\FM\26SER1.SGM 26SER1 56138 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 185 / Monday, September 26, 2005 / Rules and Regulations impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as added by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. EPA will submit a report containing this document and other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication in the Federal Register. A major rule cannot take effect until 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register. This action is not a ‘‘major rule’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2). This action will be effective November 25, 2005.

Regulations governing fishing by U.S. vessels in accordance with the FMP appear at subpart H of 50 CFR part 600 and 50 CFR part 679. NMFS closed the directed fishery for pollock in Statistical Area 630 of the GOA under § 679.20(d)(1)(iii) on August 27, 2005 (70 FR 51300, August 30, 2005). NMFS opened directed fishing for pollock in Statistical Area 630 of the GOA for 48 hrs on September 8, 2005 (70 FR 53971, September 13, 2005) and for 24 hrs on September 15, 2005 (70 FR 55305, September 21, 2005). NMFS has determined that approximately 1,550 mt of pollock remain in the directed fishing allowance for Statistical Area 630 of the GOA. Therefore, in accordance with 679.25(a)(1)(i), (a)(2)(i)(C) and (a)(2)(iii)(D), and to fully utilize the C season allowance of the 2005 TAC of pollock in Statistical area 630, NMFS is terminating the previous closure and is reopening directed fishing for pollock in Statistical Area 630 of the GOA. In accordance with § 679.20(d)(1)(iii), the Regional Administrator finds that this directed fishing allowance will be reached after 24 hours. Consequently, NMFS is prohibiting directed fishing for pollock in Statistical Area 630 of the DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 GOA effective 1200 hrs, A.l.t., September 23, 2005. NMFS closed the directed fishery for pollock in Statistical Area 620 of the GOA under § 679.20(d)(1)(iii) on August 29, 2005 (70 FR 51300, August 30, 2005). NMFS opened directed fishing for pollock in Statistical Area 620 of the GOA for 96 hrs on September 8, 2005 (70 FR 53971, September 13, 2005) and for 96 hrs on September 15, 2005 (70 FR 55305, September 21, 2005). NMFS has determined that approximately 3,900 mt of pollock remain in the directed fishing allowance for Statistical Area 620 of the GOA. Therefore, in accordance with 679.25(a)(1)(i), (a)(2)(i)(C) and (a)(2)(iii)(D), and to fully utilize the C season allowance of the 2005 TAC of pollock in Statistical area 620, NMFS is terminating the previous closure and is reopening directed fishing for pollock in Statistical Area 620 of the GOA. Classification This action responds to the best available information recently obtained from the fishery. The Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA (AA), finds good cause to waive the requirement to provide prior notice and opportunity for public comment pursuant to the authority set forth at 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) as such requirement is impracticable and contrary to the public interest. This requirement is impracticable and contrary to the public interest as it would prevent NMFS from responding to the most recent fisheries data in a timely fashion and would delay the opening of pollock in Statistical Areas 620 and 630 of the GOA. NMFS was unable to publish a an action providing time for public comment because the most recent, relevant data only became available as of September 19, 2005. The AA also finds good cause to waive the 30-day delay in the effective date of this action under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). This finding is based upon the reasons provided above for waiver of prior notice and opportunity for public comment. This action is required by §§ 679.20 and 679.25 and is exempt from review under Executive Order 12866. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. Dated: September 21, 2005. Alan D. Risenhoover, Acting Director, Office of Sustainable Fisheries, National Marine Fisheries Service. [FR Doc. 05–19168 Filed 9–21–05; 2:17 pm] BILLING CODE 3510–22–S E:\FR\FM\26SER1.SGM 26SER1

North Dakota: Final Authorization of State Hazardous Waste 
Management Program Revision

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Immediate final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: North Dakota has applied to EPA for Final authorization of 
changes to its hazardous waste program under the Resource Conservation 
and Recovery Act (RCRA). EPA has determined that these changes satisfy 
all requirements for Final authorization and is authorizing the State's 
changes through this immediate Final action. EPA is publishing this 
rule to authorize the changes without a prior proposed rule because we 
believe this action is not controversial. Unless we get written 
comments opposing this authorization during the comment period, the 
decision to authorize North Dakota's changes to their hazardous waste 
program will take effect as provided below. If we receive comments that 
oppose this action, we will publish a document in the Federal Register 
withdrawing this rule before it takes effect. A separate document in 
the proposed rules section of this Federal Register will serve as the 
proposal to authorize the State's changes.

DATES: We must receive your comments by October 26, 2005. Unless EPA 
receives comments that oppose this action, this Final authorization 
approval will become effective without further notice on November 25, 
2005.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments by one of the following methods: 1.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Why are revisions to state programs necessary?

    States that have received final authorization from EPA under RCRA 
Section 3006(b), 42 U.S.C. 6926(b), must maintain a hazardous waste 
program equivalent to, consistent with, and no less stringent than the 
Federal program. As the Federal program changes, States must change 
their programs and ask EPA to authorize their changes. Changes to State 
programs may be necessary when Federal or State statutory or regulatory 
authority is modified or when certain other changes occur. Most 
commonly, States must change their programs because of changes to EPA's 
regulations in 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) parts 124, 260 
through 266, 268, 270, 273 and 279.

B. What decisions have we made in this rule?

    We conclude that North Dakota's application to revise its 
authorized program meets all of the statutory and regulatory 
requirements established by RCRA. Therefore, we grant North Dakota 
Final authorization to operate its hazardous waste program with the 
changes described in the authorization application. North Dakota has 
responsibility for permitting Treatment, Storage, and Disposal 
Facilities (TSDFs) within its borders, except in Indian country, and 
for carrying out those portions of the RCRA program described in its 
revised program application, subject to the limitations of the 
Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984 (HSWA). New Federal 
requirements and prohibitions imposed by Federal regulations that EPA 
promulgates under the authority of HSWA take effect in authorized 
States before they are authorized for the requirements. Thus, EPA will 
implement those requirements and prohibitions in North Dakota, 
including issuing permits, until North Dakota is authorized to do so.

C. What is the effect of today's authorization decision?

    The effect of this decision is that facilities in North Dakota 
subject to

[[Page 56133]]

RCRA will now have to comply with the authorized State requirements 
instead of the equivalent Federal requirements. North Dakota has 
primary enforcement responsibility under its state hazardous waste 
program for violations of the program, but EPA retains its authority 
under RCRA sections 3007, 3008, 3013, and 7003, which include, among 
others, the authority to conduct inspections and require monitoring, 
tests, analyses, or reports; and enforce RCRA requirements and suspend 
or revoke permits.
    This action does not impose additional requirements on the 
regulated community because the regulations for which North Dakota is 
being authorized are already effective and are not changed by today's 
action.

D. Why wasn't there a proposed rule before today's rule?

    EPA did not publish a proposal before today's rule because this 
action is a routine program change, and we do not expect comments 
opposing this approval. We are providing an opportunity for public 
comment at this time. In addition, in the proposed rules section of 
today's Federal Register, there is a separate document that proposes to 
authorize the State program changes. If we receive comments opposing 
this authorization, that document will serve as a proposal to authorize 
the changes.

E. What happens if EPA receives comments opposing this action?

    If EPA receives comments opposing this authorization, we will 
withdraw this rule by publishing a notice in the Federal Register 
before the rule becomes effective. We then will address all public 
comments in a later Federal Register. You may not have another 
opportunity to comment. If you want to comment on this action, you must 
do so at this time.
    If we receive comments opposing authorization of only a particular 
change to the State hazardous waste program, we will withdraw that part 
of the rule. However, the authorization of program changes that are not 
opposed by any comments will become effective on the date specified 
above. The Federal Register withdrawal document will specify which part 
of the authorization will become effective and which part is being 
withdrawn.

F. What has North Dakota previously been authorized for?

    North Dakota initially received Final authorization on October 5, 
1984, effective October 19, 1984 (49 FR 39328) to implement the RCRA 
hazardous waste management program. We granted authorization for 
changes to their program on June 25, 1990, effective August 24, 1990 
(55 FR 25836), May 4, 1992, effective July 6, 1992 (57 FR 19087), April 
7, 1994, effective June 6, 1994 (59 FR 16566), and January 19, 2000, 
effective March 20, 2000 (65 FR 02897).

G. What changes are we authorizing with today's action?

    On June 2, 2004, September 2, 2004 and October 26, 2004, North 
Dakota submitted final revision applications, seeking authorization of 
program changes in accordance with 40 CFR 271.21.
    We now make an immediate final decision, subject to receipt of 
written comments opposing this action, that North Dakota's hazardous 
waste program revision satisfies all of the requirements necessary for 
Final authorization. Therefore, we propose to grant North Dakota final 
authorization for the following program changes (the Federal Citation 
followed by the analog from the North Dakota Administrative Code 
(NDAC), Article 33-24, as revised December 1, 2003, unless otherwise 
indicated: Delisting--(54 FR 27114, 06/27/89)(Checklist 17B.1)/changes

H. Where are the revised state rules different from the Federal rules?

    We consider the following State requirements to be more stringent 
than the Federal requirements: 33-24-01-04.27, because the State does 
not allow a closed or closing unit to be designated as a corrective 
action management unit; 33-24-02-04.2.i, because the State excludes 
only discarded wood or wood products that fail for the Toxic 
Characteristic Leaching Procedure for arsenic while Federal rules 
exclude discarded wood or wood products that fail for Hazardous Waste 
Codes D004 through D017; 33-24-03-12.1.a(1), because North Dakota 
subjects containers to full status rather than interim status 
standards; 33-24-03-12.1.a(2), because North Dakota subjects tanks to 
full status rather than interim status standards; 33-24-03-12.1.a(1), 
because North Dakota subjects containment buildings to full status 
rather than interim status standards; 33-24-03-12.1.d, because the 
State requires that facilities be designed, constructed, maintained, 
and operated to minimize the potential for fires, explosions, or any 
unplanned releases and because the State requires that the facility 
demonstrate that a particular kind of equipment will not be required; 
33-24-05-01.2, because the State does not allow for interim status 
facilities; 33-24-05-04.1.a, because the State does not allow owners/
operators of closed landfills to accept non-hazardous waste under 
certain conditions; 33-24-05-256.2.e.(3), because the State does not 
allow a treatment facility with interim status units to treat hazardous 
waste; 33-24-05-281.2, because the State does not differentiate between 
high and low zinc non-wastewater (K061 wastes); 33-

[[Page 56137]]

24-05-282.1.b and 33-24-05-282.1, Table 1, because the State does not 
allow a treatment facility with interim status units to treat hazardous 
waste; 33-24-05-282.3.a, because the State does not allow a treatment 
facility with interim status units to treat hazardous waste; 33-24-05-
282.3.c, because the State does not allow lab packs eligible for land 
disposal to be disposed at interim status landfills; 33-24-05-283.3.a, 
because the State does not allow a treatment facility with interim 
status units to treat hazardous waste; 33-24-05-552.2.a.1 and 2.b, 
because the State does not have an analog to 40 CFR 265.113 for interim 
facilities; 33-24-05-739.3.c, because the state automatically extends 
the record retention period during any unresolved enforcement action; 
33-24-05-752.3 because the state requires universal waste transporters 
to comply with the solid waste transporter permit requirements of 33-
20-02.1-01; 33-24-05-753.3 and .4, because the state has record keeping 
and retention requirements; 33-24-06-33.6, because the State requires 
any facility with an effective remedial action plan to submit a new 
application at least 180 days before expiration date of the current 
plan; North Dakota does not have an equivalent to 40 CFR 145(f)(9) 
making the State more stringent. Nevertheless, these requirements are 
part of North Dakota's authorized program and are Federally 
enforceable.
    We also consider the following State requirements to be broader-in-
scope than the Federal program at 33-24-06-14.7.a.(3), because the 
State has requirements for newly regulated wastes and units that are 
not required by Federal rules. Broader-in-scope requirements are not 
part of the authorized program, and EPA cannot enforce them. Although a 
facility must comply with these requirements in accordance with State 
law, they are not RCRA requirements.
    EPA cannot delegate the Federal requirements at 40 CFR 268.5, 
268.6, 268.42(b), and 268.44. EPA will continue to implement these 
requirements.

I. Who handles permits after this authorization takes effect?

    North Dakota will issue and administer permits for all the 
provisions for which it is authorized. EPA will continue to administer 
any RCRA hazardous waste permits or portions of permits that we issued 
prior to the effective date of this authorization. EPA will transfer 
any pending permit applications, completed permits, or pertinent file 
information to North Dakota within 30 days of this approval. We will 
not issue any more new permits or new portions of permits for the 
provisions listed in the Table above after the effective date of this 
authorization. EPA and North Dakota have agreed to joint permitting and 
enforcement for those HSWA requirements for which North Dakota is not 
yet authorized.

J. How does today's action affect Indian country (18 U.S.C. 1151) in 
North Dakota?

    North Dakota is not authorized to carry out its hazardous waste 
program in Indian country, as defined in 18 U.S.C. 1151. This includes, 
but is not limited to:
    1. Lands within the exterior boundaries of the following Indian 
Reservations located within or abutting the State of North Dakota:
    a. Fort Totten Indian Reservation
    b. Fort Berthold Indian Reservation
    c. Standing Rock Indian Reservation
    e. Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation
    2. Any land held in trust by the U.S. for an Indian tribe, and
    3. Any other land, whether on or off a reservation that qualifies 
as Indian country within the meaning of 18 U.S.C. 1151.
    Therefore, this program revision does not extend to Indian country 
where EPA will continue to implement and administer the RCRA program in 
these lands.

K. What is codification and is EPA codifying North Dakota's hazardous 
waste program as authorized in this rule?

    Codification is the process of placing the State's authorized 
hazardous waste program statutes and regulations into the Code of 
Federal Regulations. We do this by referencing the authorized State 
rules in 40 CFR part 272. We reserve the amendment of 40 CFR part 272, 
subpart JJ for this authorization of North Dakota's program until a 
later date.

L. Administrative Requirements

    The Office of Management and Budget has exempted this action from 
the requirements of Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 
1993), and therefore this action is not subject to review by OMB. This 
action authorizes State requirements for the purpose of RCRA 3006 and 
imposes no additional requirements beyond those imposed by State law. 
Accordingly, I certify that this action will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.). Because this action 
authorizes pre-existing requirements under State law and does not 
impose any additional enforceable duty beyond that required by State 
law, it does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or 
uniquely affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded 
Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-4). For the same reason, this 
action also does not significantly or uniquely affect the communities 
of Tribal governments, as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 
67249, November 9, 2000). This action will not have substantial direct 
effects on the States, on the relationship between the national 
government and the States, or on the distribution of power and 
responsibilities among the various levels of government, as specified 
in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999), because it 
merely authorizes State requirements as part of the State RCRA 
hazardous waste program without altering the relationship or the 
distribution of power and responsibilities established by RCRA. This 
action also is not subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 19885, April 
23, 1997), because it is not economically significant and it does not 
make decisions based on environmental health or safety risks. This rule 
is not subject to Executive Order 13211, ``Actions Concerning 
Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or 
Use'' (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001), because it is not a significant 
regulatory action under Executive Order 12866.
    Under RCRA 3006(b), EPA grants a State's application for 
authorization as long as the State meets the criteria required by RCRA. 
It would thus be inconsistent with applicable law for EPA, when it 
reviews a State authorization application, to require the use of any 
particular voluntary consensus standard in place of another standard 
that otherwise satisfies the requirements of RCRA. Thus, the 
requirements of section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and 
Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) do not apply. As required 
by section 3 of Executive Order 12988 (61 FR 4729, February 7, 1996), 
in issuing this rule, EPA has taken the necessary steps to eliminate 
drafting errors and ambiguity, minimize potential litigation, and 
provide a clear legal standard for affected conduct. EPA has complied 
with Executive Order 12630 (53 FR 8859, March 15, 1988) by examining 
the takings implications of the rule in accordance with the ``Attorney 
General's Supplemental Guidelines for the Evaluation of Risk and 
Avoidance of Unanticipated Takings'' issued under the executive order. 
This rule does not

[[Page 56138]]

impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).
    The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as added by the 
Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, generally 
provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating 
the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, 
to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the 
United States. EPA will submit a report containing this document and 
other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of 
Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior 
to publication in the Federal Register. A major rule cannot take effect 
until 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register. This 
action is not a ``major rule'' as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2). This 
action will be effective November 25, 2005.
