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 rules, 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). 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.

treatment of a hazardous waste generated by the Owens-Brockway Glass 
Container Company in Vernon, California that is unable to meet the 
concentration-based treatment standard for selenium established under 
the Land Disposal Restrictions program. EPA also issued a parallel 
proposal to be used as the basis for the final action in the event that 
EPA received any adverse comments on the Direct Final rule.

DATES: Effective May 24, 2011, EPA withdraws the Direct Final rule 
published at 76 FR 18921 on April 6, 2011.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Because EPA received adverse comment, we are 
withdrawing the Direct Final rule that amended the Land Disposal 
Restrictions treatment standards (40 CFR part 268.44(o)) by granting a

Nevada and withdrawing an existing site-specific treatment variance 
issued to Chemical Waste Management, Inc. in Kettleman Hills,

that Direct Final rule that if we received adverse comment by May 6, 
2011, the Direct Final rule would not take effect and we would publish 
a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register. We subsequently received 
adverse comment on that Direct Final rule. We will address those 
comments in any subsequent final action, which will be based on the 
parallel proposed rule also published on April 6, 2011 at 76 FR 18921. 
As stated in the Direct Final rule and the parallel proposed rule, we 
will not institute a second comment period on this action.
