[FR Doc. 07–5295 Filed 10–26–07; 8:45 am] SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: BILLING CODE 6560–50–P A. Why Are Revisions to State Programs Necessary? States which have received final authorization from EPA under RCRA section 3006(b), 42 U.S.C. 6926(b), must maintain a hazardous waste program that is 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 the 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. upon initial startup of your affected source as a major source, whichever is later. * * * * * I 5. Section 63.2291 is amended by revising paragraph (c) introductory text and removing paragraph (c)(5) to read as follows: § 63.2291 Who implements and enforces this subpart? * * * * * (c) The authorities that will not be delegated to State, local, or tribal agencies are listed in paragraphs (c)(1) through (4) of this section.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: EPA is granting Ohio Final authorization of the changes to its hazardous waste program under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The agency published a proposed rule on June 6, 2007 at 72 FR 31237 and provided for public comment. The public comment period ended on July 6, 2007. We received no comments. No further opportunity for comment will be provided. EPA has determined that these changes satisfy all requirements needed to qualify for Final authorization, and is proposing to authorize the State’s changes through this proposed final action. DATES: The final authorization will be effective on October 29, 2007. ADDRESSES: EPA has established a docket for this action under Docket Identification No. EPA–R05–RCRA– 2007–0397. All documents in the docket are listed in the www.regulations.gov index. Although listed in the index, some of the information is not publicly available, e.g., CBI or other information whose disclosure is restricted by statute. rfrederick on PROD1PC67 with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:52 Oct 26, 2007 Jkt 214001 B. What Decisions Have We Made in This Rule? We conclude that Ohio’s application to revise its authorized program meets all of the statutory and regulatory requirements established by RCRA. Therefore, we are granting Ohio final authorization to operate its hazardous waste program with the changes described in the authorization application. Ohio has responsibility for permitting Treatment, Storage, and Disposal Facilities (TSDFs) within its borders (except in Indian Country) and for carrying out the aspects 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 PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 61063 authorized States before they are authorized for the requirements. Thus, EPA will implement those requirements and prohibitions in Ohio, including issuing permits, until the State is granted authorization to do so. C. What Is the Effect of Today’s Authorization Decision? The effect of this decision is that a facility in Ohio subject to RCRA will now have to comply with the authorized State requirements instead of the equivalent Federal requirements in order to comply with RCRA. Ohio has enforcement responsibilities under its State hazardous waste program for violations of such program, but EPA retains its authority under RCRA sections 3007, 3008, 3013, and 7003, which include, among others, authority to: 1. Do inspections, and require monitoring, tests, analyses or reports 2. Enforce RCRA requirements and suspend or revoke permits 3. Take enforcement actions regardless of whether the State has taken its own actions This action does not impose additional requirements on the regulated community because the regulations for which Ohio is being authorized by today’s action are already effective, and are not changed by today’s action. D. Proposed Rule On June 6, 2007 (72 FR 31237), EPA published a proposed rule. In that rule we proposed granting authorization of changes to Ohio’s hazardous waste program and opened our decision to public comment. The agency received no comments on this proposal. EPA found Ohio’s RCRA program to be satisfactory. E. What Has Ohio Previously Been Authorized for? Ohio initially received final authorization on June 28, 1989, effective June 30, 1989 (54 FR 27170) to implement the RCRA hazardous waste management program. We granted authorization for changes to their program on April 8, 1991, effective June 7, 1991 (56 FR 14203) as corrected June 19, 1991, effective August 19, 1991 (56 FR 28088); July 27, 1995, effective September 25, 1995 (60 FR 38502); October 23, 1996, effective December 23, 1996 (61 FR 54950); January 24, 2003, effective January 24, 2003 (68 FR 3429); and January 20, 2006, effective January 20, 2006 (71 FR 3220).

On January 22, 2007, Ohio submitted a final complete program revision application, seeking authorization of their changes in accordance with 40 CFR 271.21. We now make a final decision, that Ohio’s hazardous waste program revision satisfies all of the requirements necessary to qualify for final authorization. Therefore, we are granting Ohio final authorization for the following program changes: TABLE 1.—OHIO’S ANALOGS TO THE FEDERAL REQUIREMENTS Federal Register date and page (and/or RCRA statutory authority) Description of federal requirement (include checklist #, if relevant) Toxicity Characteristic; Hydrocarbon Recovery Operations Checklist 80 as amended.

In this action, Ohio has chosen to remain more stringent in two rules. The first is the Hazardous Remediation Waste Management PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Requirements, (Checklist 175 above) by choosing not to adopt 40 CFR Sections 270.79 through 270.230 which allow for Remedial Action Plans (RAP). The RAP is considered to be less stringent. The E:\FR\FM\29OCR1.SGM 29OCR1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 208 / Monday, October 29, 2007 / Rules and Regulations second is the Liners and Leak Detection Systems for Hazardous Waste Disposal Units (Checklist 100 above). In this rule, Ohio is not adopting 40 CFR 270.4 which is the permit shield provision. Under Table 2 (Equivalent State Initiated Changes), sections 3745–50– 33, 3745–50–34, 3745–50–35, and 3745– 50–36 under HWFB, have also been amended. They are broader in scope fee rules, not authorizable in this action. This action involves no other more stringent or broader in scope State requirements. H. Who Handles Permits After the Authorization Takes Effect? Ohio will issue permits for all the provisions for which it is authorized and will administer the permits it issues. EPA will continue to administer any RCRA hazardous waste permits or portions of permits which we issued prior to the effective date of this authorization until they expire or are terminated. 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 will continue to implement and issue permits for HSWA requirements for which Ohio is not yet authorized. rfrederick on PROD1PC67 with RULES I. How Does Today’s Action Affect Indian Country (18 U.S.C. 1151) in Ohio? Ohio is not authorized to carry out its hazardous waste program in ‘‘Indian Country,’’ as defined in 18 U.S.C. 1151. Indian Country includes: 1. All lands within the exterior boundaries of Indian reservations within the State of Ohio; 2. Any land held in trust by the U.S. for an Indian tribe; and 3. Any other land, whether on or off an Indian reservation that qualifies as Indian Country. Therefore, EPA retains the authority to implement and administer the RCRA program in Indian Country. However, at this time, there is no Indian Country within the State of Ohio. J. What is Codification and is EPA Codifying Ohio’s Hazardous Waste Program as Authorized in This Rule? Codification is the process of placing the State’s statutes and regulations that comprise the State’s authorized hazardous waste program into the Code of Federal Regulations. We do this by referencing the authorized State rules in 40 CFR part 272. Ohio’s rules, up to and including those revised June 7, 1991, as corrected August 19, 1991, have previously been codified through the incorporation-by-reference effective VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:52 Oct 26, 2007 Jkt 214001 February 4, 1992 (57 FR 4162). We reserve the amendment of 40 CFR part 272, subpart KK for the codification of Ohio’s program changes until a later date. K. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews This proposed rule only authorizes hazardous waste requirements pursuant to RCRA 3006 and imposes no requirements other than those imposed by State law (see SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION, Section A. Why are Revisions to State Programs Necessary?). Therefore this rule complies with applicable executive orders and statutory provisions as follows: 1. Executive Order 18266: Regulatory Planning Review 61069 implications (i.e., substantial direct effects on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes.) 7. Executive Order 13045: Protection of Children From Environmental Health and Safety Risks This rule is not subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), because it is not economically significant as defined in Executive Order 12866 and because the EPA does not have reason to believe the environmental health or safety risks addressed by this action present a disproportionate risk to children. The Office of Management and Budget has exempted this rule from its review under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993). 8. Executive Order 13211: Actions That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use 2. Paperwork Reduction Act This rule is not subject to Executive Order 13211 (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001), because it is not a significant regulatory action as defined in Executive Order 12866. This rule does not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). 9. National Technology Transfer Advancement Act 3. Regulatory Flexibility Act After considering the economic impacts of today’s rule on small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.), I certify that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. 4. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act Because this rule approves preexisting 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). EPA approves State programs as long as they meet criteria required by RCRA, so it would be inconsistent with applicable law for EPA, in its review of a State program, to require the use of any particular voluntary consensus standard in place of another standard that meets 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 to this rule. 10. Executive Order 12988 5. Executive Order 13132: Federalism Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999) does not apply to this rule because it will not have federalism implications (i.e., 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 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. 11. Executive Order 12630: Evaluation of Risk and Avoidance of Unanticipated Takings 6. Executive Order 13175: Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000) does not apply to this rule because it will not have tribal PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 EPA has complied with Executive Order 12630 (53 FR 8859, March 18, 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. E:\FR\FM\29OCR1.SGM 29OCR1 61070 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 208 / Monday, October 29, 2007 / Rules and Regulations 12. Executive Order 12898: Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low Income Populations Because this rule proposes authorization of pre-existing State rules and imposes no additional requirements beyond those imposed by State law and there are no anticipated significant adverse human health or environmental effects, the rule is not subject to Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994). 13. Congressional Review Act EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other information required by the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.) 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 is necessary to enhance the effectiveness of salmon bycatch measures by exempting pollock vessels from Chinook and Chum Salmon Savings Area closures if they participate in an intercooperative agreement (ICA) to reduce salmon bycatch, and exempting vessels participating in nonpollock trawl fisheries from Chum Salmon Savings Area closures because these fisheries intercept minimal amounts of salmon.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jason Anderson, 907–586–7228, or jason.anderson@noaa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background NMFS manages the U.S. groundfish fisheries of the BSAI in the Exclusive Economic Zone under the FMP. The North Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) prepared the FMP pursuant to the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act). Regulations implementing the FMP appear at 50 CFR part 679. General regulations that pertain to U.S. fisheries appear at subpart H of 50 CFR part 600. Pacific salmon are caught incidentally in the BSAI trawl fisheries, especially in the pollock fishery. Of the five species of Pacific salmon, Chinook salmon (Onchorynchus tshawytscha) and chum salmon (O. keta) are most often incidentally caught in the pollock PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 fisheries. Pacific salmon are placed into two categories for purposes of salmon bycatch management: Chinook and nonChinook. The non-Chinook category is comprised of chum, sockeye (O. nerka), pink (O. gorbuscha), and coho (O. kisutch) salmon. However, chum salmon represent about 98 percent of non-Chinook salmon harvested incidentally in the pollock trawl fisheries. For convenience, all nonChinook salmon are referred to as chum salmon. In October 2005, the Council adopted Amendment 84 to the FMP. Amendment 84 establishes the salmon bycatch intercooperative agreement (ICA) which allows vessels participating in the directed fisheries for pollock in the Bering Sea to utilize their internal cooperative structure to reduce salmon bycatch using a method called the ‘‘voluntary rolling hotspot system’’ (VRHS). In recommending Amendment 84, the Council recognized that current regulatory management measures, including a bycatch cap that triggered closure of fixed salmon savings areas, have not been effective at reducing salmon bycatch. Amendment 84 provides an alternative approach to managing salmon bycatch which has the potential to be more effective than current regulations. The notice of availability for Amendment 84 was published in the Federal Register on March 26, 2007 (72 FR 14069), and the public review and comment period closed on May 25, 2007. NMFS approved Amendment 84 on June 22, 2007. This final rule contains regulatory amendments necessary to implement the provisions of Amendment 84. The proposed rule to implement Amendment 84 was published in the Federal Register on April 18, 2007 (72 FR 19454), and the public review and comment period closed on June 4, 2007. The proposed rule contains a description of the management measures adopted by the Council prior to Amendment 84 to limit salmon bycatch, a description of requirements for the salmon bycatch reduction ICA, and a summary of the proposed regulations to implement the Amendment 84. Please refer to the proposed rule for detailed background information as it is not reproduced in this final rule. The purpose of the salmon bycatch avoidance ICA is to use real-time salmon bycatch information to avoid areas of high chum and Chinook salmon bycatch rates. Parties to the ICA include the American Fisheries Act cooperatives, the six Western Alaska Community Development Quota (CDQ) E:\FR\FM\29OCR1.SGM 29OCR1

ended on July 6, 2007. We received no comments. No further opportunity 
for comment will be provided. EPA has determined that these changes 
satisfy all requirements needed to qualify for Final authorization, and 
is proposing to authorize the State's changes through this proposed 
final action.

DATES: The final authorization will be effective on October 29, 2007.

ADDRESSES: EPA has established a docket for this action under Docket 
Identification No. EPA-R05-RCRA-2007-0397. All documents in the docket

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Why Are Revisions to State Programs Necessary?

    States which have received final authorization from EPA under RCRA 
section 3006(b), 42 U.S.C. 6926(b), must maintain a hazardous waste 
program that is 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 the 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 Ohio's application to revise its authorized 
program meets all of the statutory and regulatory requirements 
established by RCRA. Therefore, we are granting Ohio final 
authorization to operate its hazardous waste program with the changes 
described in the authorization application. Ohio has responsibility for 
permitting Treatment, Storage, and Disposal Facilities (TSDFs) within 
its borders (except in Indian Country) and for carrying out the aspects 
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 Ohio, including issuing permits, until the State is 
granted authorization to do so.

C. What Is the Effect of Today's Authorization Decision?

    The effect of this decision is that a facility in Ohio subject to 
RCRA will now have to comply with the authorized State requirements 
instead of the equivalent Federal requirements in order to comply with 
RCRA. Ohio has enforcement responsibilities under its State hazardous 
waste program for violations of such program, but EPA retains its 
authority under RCRA sections 3007, 3008, 3013, and 7003, which 
include, among others, authority to:
    1. Do inspections, and require monitoring, tests, analyses or 
reports
    2. Enforce RCRA requirements and suspend or revoke permits
    3. Take enforcement actions regardless of whether the State has 
taken its own actions
    This action does not impose additional requirements on the 
regulated community because the regulations for which Ohio is being 
authorized by today's action are already effective, and are not changed 
by today's action.

D. Proposed Rule

    On June 6, 2007 (72 FR 31237), EPA published a proposed rule. In 
that rule we proposed granting authorization of changes to Ohio's 
hazardous waste program and opened our decision to public comment. The 
agency received no comments on this proposal. EPA found Ohio's RCRA 
program to be satisfactory.

E. What Has Ohio Previously Been Authorized for?

    Ohio initially received final authorization on June 28, 1989, 
effective June 30, 1989 (54 FR 27170) to implement the RCRA hazardous 
waste management program. We granted authorization for changes to their 
program on April 8, 1991, effective June 7, 1991 (56 FR 14203) as 
corrected June 19, 1991, effective August 19, 1991 (56 FR 28088); July 
27, 1995, effective September 25, 1995 (60 FR 38502); October 23, 1996, 
effective December 23, 1996 (61 FR 54950); January 24, 2003, effective 
January 24, 2003 (68 FR 3429); and January 20, 2006, effective January 
20, 2006 (71 FR 3220).

F. What Changes Are We Authorizing With Today's Action?

    On January 22, 2007, Ohio submitted a final complete program 
revision application, seeking authorization of their changes in 
accordance with 40 CFR 271.21. We now make a final decision, that 
Ohio's hazardous waste program revision satisfies all of the 
requirements necessary to qualify for final authorization. Therefore, 
we are granting Ohio final authorization for the following program 
changes:

G. Where Are the Revised State Rules Different From the Federal Rules?

    Ohio has excluded the non-delegable Federal requirements at 40 CFR 
268.5, 268.6, 268.42(b), 268.44, and 270.3. EPA will continue to 
implement those requirements. In this action, Ohio has chosen to remain 
more stringent in two rules. The first is the Hazardous Remediation 
Waste Management Requirements, (Checklist 175 above) by choosing not to 
adopt 40 CFR Sections 270.79 through 270.230 which allow for Remedial 
Action Plans (RAP). The RAP is considered to be less stringent. The

[[Page 61069]]

second is the Liners and Leak Detection Systems for Hazardous Waste 
Disposal Units (Checklist 100 above). In this rule, Ohio is not 
adopting 40 CFR 270.4 which is the permit shield provision. Under Table 
2 (Equivalent State Initiated Changes), sections 3745-50-33, 3745-50-
34, 3745-50-35, and 3745-50-36 under HWFB, have also been amended. They 
are broader in scope fee rules, not authorizable in this action. This 
action involves no other more stringent or broader in scope State 
requirements.

H. Who Handles Permits After the Authorization Takes Effect?

    Ohio will issue permits for all the provisions for which it is 
authorized and will administer the permits it issues. EPA will continue 
to administer any RCRA hazardous waste permits or portions of permits 
which we issued prior to the effective date of this authorization until 
they expire or are terminated. 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 will continue to 
implement and issue permits for HSWA requirements for which Ohio is not 
yet authorized.

I. How Does Today's Action Affect Indian Country (18 U.S.C. 1151) in 
Ohio?

    Ohio is not authorized to carry out its hazardous waste program in 
``Indian Country,'' as defined in 18 U.S.C. 1151. Indian Country 
includes:
    1. All lands within the exterior boundaries of Indian reservations 
within the State of Ohio;
    2. Any land held in trust by the U.S. for an Indian tribe; and
    3. Any other land, whether on or off an Indian reservation that 
qualifies as Indian Country.
    Therefore, EPA retains the authority to implement and administer 
the RCRA program in Indian Country. However, at this time, there is no 
Indian Country within the State of Ohio.

J. What is Codification and is EPA Codifying Ohio's Hazardous Waste 
Program as Authorized in This Rule?

    Codification is the process of placing the State's statutes and 
regulations that comprise the State's authorized hazardous waste 
program into the Code of Federal Regulations. We do this by referencing 
the authorized State rules in 40 CFR part 272. Ohio's rules, up to and 
including those revised June 7, 1991, as corrected August 19, 1991, 
have previously been codified through the incorporation-by-reference 
effective February 4, 1992 (57 FR 4162). We reserve the amendment of 40 
CFR part 272, subpart KK for the codification of Ohio's program changes 
until a later date.

K. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    This proposed rule only authorizes hazardous waste requirements 
pursuant to RCRA 3006 and imposes no requirements other than those 
imposed by State law (see Supplementary Information, Section A. Why are 
Revisions to State Programs Necessary?). Therefore this rule complies 
with applicable executive orders and statutory provisions as follows:

1. Executive Order 18266: Regulatory Planning Review

    The Office of Management and Budget has exempted this rule from its 
review under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993).

2. Paperwork Reduction Act

    This rule does not impose an information collection burden under 
the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 
et seq.).

3. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    After considering the economic impacts of today's rule on small 
entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.), I 
certify that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities.

4. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    Because this rule approves 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).

5. Executive Order 13132: Federalism

    Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999) does not apply 
to this rule because it will not have federalism implications (i.e., 
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).

6. Executive Order 13175: Consultation and Coordination With Indian 
Tribal Governments

    Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000) does not 
apply to this rule because it will not have tribal implications (i.e., 
substantial direct effects on one or more Indian tribes, on the 
relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on 
the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal 
Government and Indian tribes.)

7. Executive Order 13045: Protection of Children From Environmental 
Health and Safety Risks

    This rule is not subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 19885, 
April 23, 1997), because it is not economically significant as defined 
in Executive Order 12866 and because the EPA does not have reason to 
believe the environmental health or safety risks addressed by this 
action present a disproportionate risk to children.

8. Executive Order 13211: Actions That Significantly Affect Energy 
Supply, Distribution, or Use

    This rule is not subject to Executive Order 13211 (66 FR 28355, May 
22, 2001), because it is not a significant regulatory action as defined 
in Executive Order 12866.

9. National Technology Transfer Advancement Act

    EPA approves State programs as long as they meet criteria required 
by RCRA, so it would be inconsistent with applicable law for EPA, in 
its review of a State program, to require the use of any particular 
voluntary consensus standard in place of another standard that meets 
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 to this rule.

10. Executive Order 12988

    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.

11. Executive Order 12630: Evaluation of Risk and Avoidance of 
Unanticipated Takings

    EPA has complied with Executive Order 12630 (53 FR 8859, March 18, 
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.

[[Page 61070]]

12. Executive Order 12898: Federal Actions to Address Environmental 
Justice in Minority Populations and Low Income Populations

    Because this rule proposes authorization of pre-existing State 
rules and imposes no additional requirements beyond those imposed by 
State law and there are no anticipated significant adverse human health 
or environmental effects, the rule is not subject to Executive Order 
12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994).

13. Congressional Review Act

    EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other information 
required by the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.) 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).
