Maryland Regulatory Program, 13112-13113 [2011-5375]

Download as PDF 13112 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 47 / Thursday, March 10, 2011 / Proposed Rules Background Under the disability programs in titles II and XVI of the Act, we pay benefits to individuals who meet our rules for entitlement and have medically determinable physical or mental impairments that are severe enough to meet the statutory definition of disability. The rules for determining disability can be very complicated, but some individuals have such serious medical conditions that their conditions obviously meet our disability standards with minimal objective medical evidence alone. To better address the needs of these individuals, we are looking into ways to allow benefits as quickly as possible based on minimal objective medical information. Will we respond to your comments? We will carefully consider your comments, although we will not respond directly to comments sent in response to this notice or the hearing. Additional Hearings You may access the transcripts of our prior hearings at http:// www.socialsecurity.gov/ compassionateallowances/. We plan to hold additional hearings on other conditions and will announce those hearings with notices in the Federal Register.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 28, 2011, (76 FR 5103) we published a proposed rule that would revise the Maryland program. The revisions would add regulations to the Maryland program to regulate coal combustion byproducts and to establish requirements pertaining to the generation, storage, handling, processing, disposal, recycling, PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 beneficial use, or other use of coal combustion byproducts (CCB) within the State. In total, these regulations pertain to all CCB activities in the State, not just surface coal mining and reclamation operations. However, a section of the added regulations specifically pertains to surface coal mining and reclamation operations and is proposed to be part of Maryland’s federally approved state program. The regulation specific to surface coal mining and reclamation operations has been added as a new regulation, Regulation .08 under COMAR 26.20.24, Special Performance Standards. Specifically, Maryland’s Regulation .08 Utilization of Coal Combustion Byproducts, will include paragraphs A–H on the Purpose and Scope, Conditions for Utilization, and Testing and Monitoring. Additionally, Maryland is adding a Coal Combustion Byproducts Utilization Request requirement that will require a solids analysis of the CCBs and a Toxicity Characteristics Leaching Procedure (TCLP) leachate analysis of the CCBs. Maryland may also impose additional controls or conditions on the use of CCBs as it sees fit for the protection of human health and the environment. On February 14, 2011, (Administrative Record Number MD– 588–010), we received a request from an attorney representing the Maryland Chapter of the Sierra Club to extend the comment period and to hold a public hearing on the amendment. We are granting the request to extend the public comment period to afford the public more time to comment on the amendment and to allow enough time to schedule and hold the hearing. The date, time and location for the public hearing may be found under DATES and ADDRESSES above. The hearings will be open to anyone who would like to attend and/or testify. The primary purpose of the public hearing is to obtain your comments on the proposed rule so that we can prepare a complete and objective analysis of the proposal.

Comments submitted during the hearing will be responded to in the preamble to the final rule, not at the hearing. We appreciate all comments but those most useful and likely to influence decisions on the final rule will be those that either involve personal experience or include citations to, and analyses of, the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977, its legislative history, its implementing regulations, case law, other State or Federal laws and regulations, data, E:\FR\FM\10MRP1.SGM 10MRP1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 47 / Thursday, March 10, 2011 / Proposed Rules technical literature, or relevant publications.

ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (‘‘CERCLA’’ or ‘‘the Act’’), as amended, requires that the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (‘‘NCP’’) include a list of national priorities among the known releases or threatened releases of hazardous substances, pollutants, or contaminants throughout the United SUMMARY: 13113 States. The National Priorities List (‘‘NPL’’) constitutes this list. The NPL is intended primarily to guide the Environmental Protection Agency (‘‘EPA’’ or ‘‘the Agency’’) in determining which sites warrant further investigation. These further investigations will allow EPA to assess the nature and extent of public health and environmental risks associated with the site and to determine what CERCLAfinanced remedial action(s), if any, may be appropriate. This rule proposes to add 15 sites to the General Superfund section of the NPL. One of the sites included in this proposed rule, MolyCorp, Inc., was previously proposed in May 2000. MolyCorp, Inc. is being re-proposed with a revised HRS score that is based on extensive new sampling data. Comments regarding any of these proposed listings must be submitted (postmarked) on or before May 9, 2011. DATES: Identify the appropriate Docket Number from the table below.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 28, 2011, (76 FR 5103) we 
published a proposed rule that would revise the Maryland program. The 
revisions would add regulations to the Maryland program to regulate 
coal combustion byproducts and to establish requirements pertaining to 
the generation, storage, handling, processing, disposal, recycling, 
beneficial use, or other use of coal combustion byproducts (CCB) within 
the State. In total, these regulations pertain to all CCB activities in 
the State, not just surface coal mining and reclamation operations. 
However, a section of the added regulations specifically pertains to 
surface coal mining and reclamation operations and is proposed to be 
part of Maryland's federally approved state program. The regulation 
specific to surface coal mining and reclamation operations has been 
added as a new regulation, Regulation .08 under COMAR 26.20.24, Special 
Performance Standards.
    Specifically, Maryland's Regulation .08 Utilization of Coal 
Combustion Byproducts, will include paragraphs A-H on the Purpose and 
Scope, Conditions for Utilization, and Testing and Monitoring. 
Additionally, Maryland is adding a Coal Combustion Byproducts 
Utilization Request requirement that will require a solids analysis of 
the CCBs and a Toxicity Characteristics Leaching Procedure (TCLP) 
leachate analysis of the CCBs. Maryland may also impose additional 
controls or conditions on the use of CCBs as it sees fit for the 
protection of human health and the environment.
    On February 14, 2011, (Administrative Record Number MD-588-010), we 
received a request from an attorney representing the Maryland Chapter 
of the Sierra Club to extend the comment period and to hold a public 
hearing on the amendment. We are granting the request to extend the 
public comment period to afford the public more time to comment on the 
amendment and to allow enough time to schedule and hold the hearing. 
The date, time and location for the public hearing may be found under 
DATES and ADDRESSES above.
    The hearings will be open to anyone who would like to attend and/or 
testify. The primary purpose of the public hearing is to obtain your 
comments on the proposed rule so that we can prepare a complete and 
objective analysis of the proposal. The purpose of the hearing officer 
is to conduct the hearing and receive the comments submitted. Comments 
submitted during the hearing will be responded to in the preamble to 
the final rule, not at the hearing. We appreciate all comments but 
those most useful and likely to influence decisions on the final rule 
will be those that either involve personal experience or include 
citations to, and analyses of, the Surface Mining Control and 
Reclamation Act of 1977, its legislative history, its implementing 
regulations, case law, other State or Federal laws and regulations, 
data,
