This program ensures that owners and occupants of target housing are provided information concerning potential hazards of lead-based paint exposure before certain renovations are begun. This notice announces receipt of the State of Michigan’s application and program self-certification, EPA’s determination that the Michigan application is complete, and provides a 45-day public comment period and opportunity to request a public hearing. Michigan has self-certified that its prerenovation education program is at least as protective of human health and the environment as the federal program complying with the requirements for self-certification. Therefore, pursuant to section 404 of TSCA the Michigan prerenovation education program is deemed authorized until such time as the Agency disapproves the program application or withdraws the program authorization. If EPA subsequently finds that the program does not meet all the requirements for an authorized State program, EPA will work with the State to correct any deficiencies in order to approve the program. If the deficiencies are not corrected a notice of disapproval will be issued in the Federal Register and a Federal program will be implemented in the State. DATES: Comments, identified by docket control number EPA–R05–RCRA–2008– 0568, must be received on or before November 3, 2008. In addition, a public hearing request must be submitted on or before October 2, 2008.
