Wisconsin: Final Authorization of State Hazardous Waste Management Program Revision, 17785-17792 [E9-8850]

Download as PDF 17785 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 73 / Friday, April 17, 2009 / Rules and Regulations • Is certified as not having a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.); • Does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or uniquely affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Public Law 104–4); • Does not have Federalism implications as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999); • Is not an economically significant regulatory action based on health or safety risks subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997); • Is not a significant regulatory action subject to Executive Order 13211 (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001); • Is not subject to requirements of Section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) because application of those requirements would be inconsistent with the CAA; and • Does not provide EPA with the discretionary authority to address, as appropriate, disproportionate human health or environmental effects, using practicable and legally permissible methods, under Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994). In addition, this rule does not have tribal implications as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), because the SIP is not approved to apply in an Indian country located in the state, and EPA notes that it will not impose substantial direct costs on tribal governments or preempt tribal laws. 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 action 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 of the rule 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). Under section 307(b)(1) of the Clean Air Act, petitions for judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by June 16, 2009. Filing a petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule does not affect the finality of this action for the purposes of judicial review nor does it extend the time within which a petition for judicial review may be filed, and shall not postpone the effectiveness of such rule or action. Parties with objections to this direct final rule are encouraged to file a comment in response to the parallel notice of proposed rulemaking for this action published in the proposed rules section of today’s Federal Register, rather than file an immediate petition for judicial review of this direct final rule, so that EPA can withdraw this direct final rule and address the comment in the proposed rulemaking. This action may not be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2).)

The agency published a proposed rule on November 25, 2008 at 73 FR 71583 and provided for public comment. The public comment period ended on December 26, 2008. 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 E:\FR\FM\17APR1.SGM 17APR1 17786 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 73 / Friday, April 17, 2009 / Rules and Regulations changes. This final rule authorizes Wisconsin for new regulations which they have not been previously authorized for. DATES: The final authorization will be effective on April 17, 2009. ADDRESSES: EPA has established a docket for this action under Docket ID No. EPA–R05–RCRA–2008–0712. 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. Certain other material, such as copyrighted material, will be publicly available only in hard copy. Publicly available docket materials are available either electronically at http:// www.regulations.gov or in hard copy.

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 Wisconsin’s application to revise its authorized program meets all of the statutory and regulatory requirements established by RCRA. Therefore, we are granting Wisconsin final authorization to operate its hazardous waste program with the changes described in the authorization application. Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin, including issuing permits, until the State is granted authorization to do so. C. What Is the Effect of This Authorization Decision? The effect of this decision is that a facility in Wisconsin 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. Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin is being authorized by today’s action are already effective, and are not changed by today’s action. D. Proposed Rule On November 25, 2008 (73 FR 71583), EPA published a proposed rule. In that rule we proposed granting authorization of changes to Wisconsin’s hazardous waste program and opened our decision to public comment. The agency received no comments on this proposal. E. What Has Wisconsin Previously Been Authorized for? Wisconsin initially received final authorization on January 30, 1986, effective January 31, 1986 (51 FR 3783) to implement the RCRA hazardous waste management program. We granted authorization for changes to their program on May 23, 1989, effective June 6, 1989 (54 FR 15029), on November 22, 1989, effective January 22, 1990 (54 FR 48243), on April 24, 1992, effective April 24, 1992 (57 FR 15029), on June 2, 1993, effective August 2, 1993 (58 FR 31344), on August 4, 1994, effective October 4, 1994 (59 FR 39971), on August 5, 1999, effective October 4, 1999 (64 FR 42630), and on June 26, 2002, effective June 26, 2002 (67 FR 43002). F. What Changes Are We Authorizing With This Action? On April 29, 2008, Wisconsin submitted a final complete program revision application, seeking authorization of their changes in accordance with 40 CFR 271.21. We have determined that Wisconsin’s hazardous waste program revision satisfies all of the requirements necessary to qualify for final authorization. Therefore, we are granting Wisconsin final authorization for the following program changes: TABLE 1—WISCONSIN’S ANALOGS TO THE FEDERAL REQUIREMENTS Federal Register date and page (and/or RCRA statutory authority) dwashington3 on PROD1PC60 with RULES Description of Federal requirement (include checklist #, if relevant) Technical Amendments to the Universal Treatment Standards and Treatment Standards for Organic Toxicity Characteristic Wastes and Newly Listed Waste, Checklist 137.1.

These practices are prohibited in Wisconsin: Underground Injection (40 CFR Part 144), and Land Treatment (40 CFR 270.20) of hazardous waste. Wisconsin also does not provide for Permit by Rule (40 CFR 270.60). Wisconsin does not allow automatic authorization under the permit modification regulations found in 40 CFR 270.42(b)(6). The 10 year Remedial Action Plan, or RAP (40 CFR 270.79– 270.230) is replaced by a 5 year Remediation Variance (NR 670.079) (See 66 FR 28397 (2001) for a discussion on Wisconsin Variance authority). These Wisconsin regulations are more stringent: 662.220(5)(c,d), 662.220(6)(c,d,f), and 670.030(10)(i) (annual report required instead of a biennial report). Wisconsin maintains different financial regulations, that allow for additional equivalent financial mechanisms (664.0143), do not allow the net worth test for closure under Part 665, and maintain some more stringent insurance requirements under VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:01 Apr 16, 2009 Jkt 217001 Analogous state authority October 3, 2001, 66 FR 50332.

On the converse, there are no Wisconsin provisions for 40 CFR 268.5, 268.44 (other than 268.44(h)), and 270.3 as these are Federal non-delegable provisions. H. Who Handles Permits After the Authorization Takes Effect? Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin is not yet authorized. PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 I. How Does This Action Affect Indian Country (18 U.S.C. 1151) in Wisconsin? Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin; 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, this action has no effect on Indian Country. EPA will continue to implement and administer the RCRA program in Indian Country. J. What Is Codification and Is EPA Codifying Wisconsin’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. Wisconsin’s rules, up E:\FR\FM\17APR1.SGM 17APR1 17792 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 73 / Friday, April 17, 2009 / Rules and Regulations 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 Wisconsin’s program changes until a later date. K. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews This final 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) and therefore this action is not subject to review by OMB. 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 This action authorizes State requirements for the purpose of RCRA section 3006 and imposes no additional requirements beyond those imposed by State law. Accordingly, I certify that this rule 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.). 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). dwashington3 on PROD1PC60 with RULES 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 VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:01 Apr 16, 2009 Jkt 217001 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, or 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 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. 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. 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 the 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).

Wisconsin: Final Authorization of State Hazardous Waste 
Management Program Revision

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: EPA is granting Wisconsin 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 November 
25, 2008 at 73 FR 71583 and provided for public comment. The public 
comment period ended on December 26, 2008. 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

[[Page 17786]]

changes. This final rule authorizes Wisconsin for new regulations which 
they have not been previously authorized for.

DATES: The final authorization will be effective on April 17, 2009.

ADDRESSES: EPA has established a docket for this action under Docket ID 
No. EPA-R05-RCRA-2008-0712. 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

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 Wisconsin's application to revise its authorized 
program meets all of the statutory and regulatory requirements 
established by RCRA. Therefore, we are granting Wisconsin final 
authorization to operate its hazardous waste program with the changes 
described in the authorization application. Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin, including 
issuing permits, until the State is granted authorization to do so.

C. What Is the Effect of This Authorization Decision?

    The effect of this decision is that a facility in Wisconsin 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. Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin is 
being authorized by today's action are already effective, and are not 
changed by today's action.

D. Proposed Rule

    On November 25, 2008 (73 FR 71583), EPA published a proposed rule. 
In that rule we proposed granting authorization of changes to 
Wisconsin's hazardous waste program and opened our decision to public 
comment. The agency received no comments on this proposal.

E. What Has Wisconsin Previously Been Authorized for?

    Wisconsin initially received final authorization on January 30, 
1986, effective January 31, 1986 (51 FR 3783) to implement the RCRA 
hazardous waste management program. We granted authorization for 
changes to their program on May 23, 1989, effective June 6, 1989 (54 FR 
15029), on November 22, 1989, effective January 22, 1990 (54 FR 48243), 
on April 24, 1992, effective April 24, 1992 (57 FR 15029), on June 2, 
1993, effective August 2, 1993 (58 FR 31344), on August 4, 1994, 
effective October 4, 1994 (59 FR 39971), on August 5, 1999, effective 
October 4, 1999 (64 FR 42630), and on June 26, 2002, effective June 26, 
2002 (67 FR 43002).

F. What Changes Are We Authorizing With This Action?

    On April 29, 2008, Wisconsin submitted a final complete program 
revision application, seeking authorization of their changes in 
accordance with 40 CFR 271.21. We have determined that Wisconsin's 
hazardous waste program revision satisfies all of the requirements 
necessary to qualify for final authorization. Therefore, we are 
granting Wisconsin final authorization for the following program 
changes:

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

    These practices are prohibited in Wisconsin: Underground Injection 
(40 CFR Part 144), and Land Treatment (40 CFR 270.20) of hazardous 
waste. Wisconsin also does not provide for Permit by Rule (40 CFR 
270.60). Wisconsin does not allow automatic authorization under the 
permit modification regulations found in 40 CFR 270.42(b)(6). The 10 
year Remedial Action Plan, or RAP (40 CFR 270.79-270.230) is replaced 
by a 5 year Remediation Variance (NR 670.079) (See 66 FR 28397 (2001) 
for a discussion on Wisconsin Variance authority). These Wisconsin 
regulations are more stringent: 662.220(5)(c,d), 662.220(6)(c,d,f), and 
670.030(10)(i) (annual report required instead of a biennial report). 
Wisconsin maintains different financial regulations, that allow for 
additional equivalent financial mechanisms (664.0143), do not allow the 
net worth test for closure under Part 665, and maintain some more 
stringent insurance requirements under 664.0143(5)(h), 
664.0147(1)(a)(3), and 665.0147(1)(a)(3).
    The following Wisconsin regulations have no Federal Counterpart: 
666.900 through 666.910. On the converse, there are no Wisconsin 
provisions for 40 CFR 268.5, 268.44 (other than 268.44(h)), and 270.3 
as these are Federal non-delegable provisions.

H. Who Handles Permits After the Authorization Takes Effect?

    Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin 
is not yet authorized.

I. How Does This Action Affect Indian Country (18 U.S.C. 1151) in 
Wisconsin?

    Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin;
    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, this action has no effect on Indian Country. EPA will 
continue to implement and administer the RCRA program in Indian 
Country.

J. What Is Codification and Is EPA Codifying Wisconsin'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. Wisconsin's rules, up

[[Page 17792]]

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 
Wisconsin's program changes until a later date.

K. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    This final 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) and 
therefore this action is not subject to review by OMB.

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

    This action authorizes State requirements for the purpose of RCRA 
section 3006 and imposes no additional requirements beyond those 
imposed by State law. Accordingly, I certify that this rule 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.).

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, or 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 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.

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 the 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).

List of Subjects in 40 CFR Part 271
