ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 0969.08, OMB Control No. 2050–0041. ICR status: This ICR is currently 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 form, if applicable. The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: In order for a State to obtain final authorization for a State hazardous waste program or to revise its previously authorized program, it must submit an official application to the EPA Regional office for approval. The purpose of the application is to enable EPA to properly determine whether the State’s program meets the requirements of § 3006 of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). A State with an approved program may voluntarily transfer program responsibilities to EPA by notifying EPA of the proposed transfer, as required by 40 CFR 271.23. Further, EPA may withdraw a State’s authorized program under 40 CFR 271.23. State program revision may be necessary when the controlling Federal or State statutory or regulatory authority is modified or supplemented. In the event that the State is revising its program by adopting new Federal requirements, the State shall prepare and submit modified revisions of the program description, Attorney General’s E:\FR\FM\23SEN1.SGM 23SEN1 jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 185 / Tuesday, September 23, 2008 / Notices statement, Memorandum of Agreement, or such other documents as EPA determines to be necessary. 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.

    Abstract: In order for a State to obtain final authorization for a 
State hazardous waste program or to revise its previously authorized 
program, it must submit an official application to the EPA Regional 
office for approval. The purpose of the application is to enable EPA to 
properly determine whether the State's program meets the requirements 
of Sec.  3006 of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). A 
State with an approved program may voluntarily transfer program 
responsibilities to EPA by notifying EPA of the proposed transfer, as 
required by 40 CFR 271.23. Further, EPA may withdraw a State's 
authorized program under 40 CFR 271.23.
    State program revision may be necessary when the controlling 
Federal or State statutory or regulatory authority is modified or 
supplemented. In the event that the State is revising its program by 
adopting new Federal requirements, the State shall prepare and submit 
modified revisions of the program description, Attorney General's

statement, Memorandum of Agreement, or such other documents as EPA 
determines to be necessary. 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 Sec.  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

annualized labor costs and $0 annualized capital or O&M costs.
    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.
