The State shall inform EPA of any proposed modifications to its basic statutory or regulatory authority in accordance with 40 CFR 271.21. If a State is proposing to transfer all or any part of any program from the approved State agency to any other agency, it must notify EPA in accordance with 40 CFR 271.21 and submit revised organizational charts as required under 40 CFR 271.6, in accordance with 40 CFR 271.21. These paperwork requirements are mandatory under § 3006(a) of RCRA. EPA will use the information submitted by the State in order to determine whether the State’s program meets the statutory and regulatory requirements for authorization. Burden Statement: EPA does not expect any States to develop a program application or to submit a base program application over the three year period covered in this ICR. For a State submitting a revised program to EPA, the reporting burden is estimated to be 1,009 hours per year, with no associated recordkeeping burden. For a State whose program is being withdrawn, the reporting burden is estimated to average 207 hours, with no associated recordkeeping burden. EPA, however, does not expect that any State program will be withdrawn during the next three years. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements which have subsequently changed; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information. Respondents/Affected Entities: State governments. Estimated Number of Respondents: 58. Frequency of Response: Annually. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 19,968. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $658,454, which includes $658,454 annualized labor costs and $0 annualized capital or O&M costs. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:54 Sep 22, 2008 Jkt 214001 Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens.

An Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA’s regulations in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, are displayed either by publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such as on the related collection instrument or E:\FR\FM\23SEN1.SGM 23SEN1 jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES 54802 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 185 / Tuesday, September 23, 2008 / Notices form, if applicable. The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: EPA, under authority of section 112d of the Clean Air Act, established National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs) for hazardous waste combustors: hazardous waste burning incinerators, cement kilns, lightweight aggregate kilns, industrial/commercial/ institutional boilers and process heaters, and hydrochloric acid production furnaces. These NESHAPs are found in 40 CFR part 63, subpart EEE. Under these standards, hazardous waste combustors are required to meet emission levels that reflect the maximum achievable control technology. Subpart EEE of 40 CFR part 63 requires hazardous waste combustors to perform testing and monitoring and submit various reports and perform recordkeeping activities in order to demonstrate compliance with emission standards. Much of the information is kept on-site at the facilities; some is also submitted to the EPA or the delegated state agency. Facilities and EPA use the data to ensure compliance with Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) standards. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 52 hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements which have subsequently changed; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information. Respondents/Affected Entities: Business or other for-profit, and State, Local, or Tribal governments. Estimated Number of Respondents: 289. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 199,897. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $21,696,865, includes $16,010,727 for VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:54 Sep 22, 2008 Jkt 214001 annualized labor cost, and $5,686,138 in annualized capital or O&M costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 1,630 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This decrease is due to the fact that most sources have completed several actions involving one-time costs, such as initial notification, notice of the intent to comply, as well as public meetings related to these actions.

    ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1773.09, OMB Control No. 2050-0171.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on September 30, 2008. 
Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor 
the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. 
An Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to 
respond to, a collection of information, unless it displays a currently 
valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA's regulations 
in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when 
approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, are displayed either by 
publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such 
as on the related collection instrument or

[[Page 54802]]

form, if applicable. The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA 
regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9.
    Abstract: EPA, under authority of section 112d of the Clean Air 
Act, established National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air 
Pollutants (NESHAPs) for hazardous waste combustors: hazardous waste 
burning incinerators, cement kilns, lightweight aggregate kilns, 
industrial/commercial/institutional boilers and process heaters, and 
hydrochloric acid production furnaces. These NESHAPs are found in 40 
CFR part 63, subpart EEE. Under these standards, hazardous waste 
combustors are required to meet emission levels that reflect the 
maximum achievable control technology.
    Subpart EEE of 40 CFR part 63 requires hazardous waste combustors 
to perform testing and monitoring and submit various reports and 
perform recordkeeping activities in order to demonstrate compliance 
with emission standards. Much of the information is kept on-site at the 
facilities; some is also submitted to the EPA or the delegated state 
agency. Facilities and EPA use the data to ensure compliance with 
Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) standards.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 52 
hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial 
resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or 
disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This 
includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, 
install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of 
collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and 
maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; 
adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable 
instructions and requirements which have subsequently changed; train 
personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search 
data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and 
transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
    Respondents/Affected Entities: Business or other for-profit, and 
State, Local, or Tribal governments.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 289.
    Frequency of Response: On occasion.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 199,897.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $21,696,865, includes $16,010,727 for 
annualized labor cost, and $5,686,138 in annualized capital or O&M 
costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 1,630 hours in the 
total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of 
Approved ICR Burdens. This decrease is due to the fact that most 
sources have completed several actions involving one-time costs, such 
as initial notification, notice of the intent to comply, as well as 
public meetings related to these actions.
