ACTION: Direct final rule. AGENCY: During a review of Texas’ regulations, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) identified a variety of State-initiated changes to its hazardous waste program under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). We have determined that these changes are minor and satisfy all requirements needed to qualify for Final authorization and are authorizing the State-initiated changes through this direct Final action. In addition, this document corrects technical errors made in the September 3, 2014, Federal Register authorization document for Texas. The Solid Waste Disposal Act, as amended, commonly referred to as the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), allows the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to authorize States to operate their hazardous waste management programs in lieu of the Federal program. The EPA uses the regulations entitled ‘‘Approved State Hazardous Waste Management Programs’’ to provide notice of the authorization status of State programs and to incorporate by reference those provisions of the State statutes and regulations that will be subject to the EPA’s inspection and enforcement. The rule codifies in the regulations the prior approval of Texas’ hazardous waste management program and incorporates by reference authorized provisions of the State’s statutes and regulations. DATES: This regulation is effective February 26, 2016, unless the EPA receives adverse written comment on this regulation by the close of business January 27, 2016. If the EPA receives such comments, it will publish a timely SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\28DER1.SGM 28DER1 mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 248 / Monday, December 28, 2015 / Rules and Regulations withdrawal of this direct final rule in the Federal Register informing the public that this rule will not take effect. The Director of the Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference as of February 26, 2016 in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552(a) and 1 CFR part 51.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Authorization of State-Initiated Changes A. Why are revisions to State programs necessary? States which have received Final authorization from the 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 hazardous waste program. As the Federal program changes, the States must change their programs and ask the EPA to authorize the changes. Changes to State hazardous waste 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 the EPA’s regulations in 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) parts 124, 260 through 268, 270, 273 and 279. States can also initiate their own changes to their hazardous waste program and these changes must then be authorized. B. What decisions have we made in this rule? We conclude that Texas’ revisions to its authorized program meet all of the statutory and regulatory requirements established by RCRA. We found that the State-initiated changes make Texas’ rules more clear or conform more closely to the Federal equivalents, and are so minor in nature that a formal application is unnecessary. Therefore, we grant Texas final authorization to operate its hazardous waste program with the changes described in the table at Section G below. Texas has responsibility for permitting Treatment, Storage, and Disposal Facilities (TSDFs) PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 80673 within its borders (except in Indian Country) and for carrying out all authorized aspects of the RCRA program, 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, the EPA will implement those requirements and prohibitions in Texas, 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 Texas, 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. Texas has enforcement responsibilities under its State hazardous waste program for violations of such program, but the EPA retains its authority under RCRA sections 3007, 3008, 3013, and 7003, which include, among others, authority to: • Do inspections, and require monitoring, tests, analyses, or reports; • Enforce RCRA requirements and suspend or revoke permits; and • 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 statutes and regulations for which Texas is being authorized by this direct action are already effective and are not changed by this action. D. Why wasn’t there a proposed rule before this rule? The EPA did not publish a proposal before this rule because we view this as a routine program change and do not expect comments that oppose this approval. We are providing an opportunity for public comment now. In addition to this rule, in the Proposed Rules section of this Federal Register, we are publishing a separate document that proposes to authorize the State program changes. E. What happens if EPA receives comments that oppose this action? If the EPA receives comments that oppose the authorization of the Stateinitiated changes in this codification document, we will withdraw this rule by publishing a timely document in the Federal Register before the rule E:\FR\FM\28DER1.SGM 28DER1 80674 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 248 / Monday, December 28, 2015 / Rules and Regulations becomes effective. The EPA will base any further decision on the authorization of the State program changes on the proposal mentioned in the previous paragraph. We will then address all public comments in a later final rule. If you want to comment on this authorization, you must do so at this time. If we receive comments that oppose only the authorization of a particular change to the State hazardous waste program, we may withdraw only that part of this rule, but the authorization of the program changes that the comments do not oppose will become effective on the date specified above. The Federal Register withdrawal document will specify which part of the authorization of the State program will become effective and which part is being withdrawn. The purpose of this Federal Register document is to codify Texas’ base hazardous waste management program and its revisions to that program. The EPA has already provided notices and opportunity for comments on the Agency’s decisions to codify the Texas program, and the EPA is not now reopening the decisions, nor requesting comments, on the Texas authorization as published in the Federal Register notices specified in Section I.F. of this document. F. For what has Texas previously been authorized? Texas initially received final authorization on December 26, 1984 (49 FR 48300), to implement its Base Hazardous Waste Management Program. This authorization was clarified in a notice published March 26, 1985 (50 FR 11858). Texas received authorization for revisions to its program, effective October 4, 1985 (51 FR 3952), February 17, 1987 (51 FR 45320), March 15, 1990 (55 FR 7318), July 23, 1990 (55 FR 21383), October 21, 1991 (56 FR 41626), December 4, 1992 (57 FR 45719), June 27, 1994 (59 FR 16987), June 27, 1994 (59 FR 17273), November 26, 1997 (62 FR 47947), December 3, 1997 (62 FR 49163), October 18, 1999 (64 FR 44836), November 15, 1999 (64 FR 49673), September 11, 2000 (65 FR 43246), June 14, 2005 (70 FR 34371), December 29, 2008, (73 FR 64252), July 13, 2009 (74 FR 22469), May 6, 2011 (76 FR 12283), May 7, 2012 (77 FR 13200), January 9, 2013 (77 FR 71344) and November 3, 2014 (79 FR 52220). G. What changes are we authorizing with this action? The State has made amendments to the provisions listed in the table which follows. These amendments clarify the State’s regulations, and make the State’s regulations more internally consistent. The State’s laws and regulations, as amended by these provisions, provide authority which remains equivalent to, no less stringent than, and not broader in scope than the Federal laws and regulations. These State-initiated changes satisfy the requirements of 40 CFR 271.21(a). We are granting Texas final authorization to carry out the following provisions of the State’s program, in lieu of the Federal program. These provisions are analogous to the indicated RCRA regulations found at 40 CFR, as of July 1, 2010. The Texas provisions are from the Texas Administrative Code (TAC), Title 30, amended to be effective February 21, 2013 (except as noted below).

H. Who handles permits after the authorization takes effect? I. How does this action affect Indian Country (18 U.S.C. 1151) in Texas? This authorization does not affect the status of State permits and those permits issued by the EPA, because no new substantive requirements are a part of these revisions. Texas is not authorized to carry out its Hazardous Waste Program in Indian Country within the State. This authority remains with EPA. Therefore, this action has no effect in Indian Country.

III. Incorporation-by-Reference mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES A. What is codification? Codification is the process of placing a State’s statutes and regulations that comprise the State’s authorized hazardous waste management program into the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). Section 3006(b) of RCRA, as amended, allows the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to authorize State hazardous waste management programs to operate in lieu of the Federal hazardous waste management regulatory program. The EPA codifies its authorization of State programs in 40 CFR part 272, and incorporates by reference State statutes and regulations that the EPA will enforce under sections 3007 and 3008 of RCRA and any other applicable statutory provisions. VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:41 Dec 24, 2015 Jkt 238001 The incorporation by reference of State authorized programs in the CFR should substantially enhance the public’s ability to discern the current status of the authorized State program and State requirements that can be Federally enforced. This effort provides clear notice to the public of the scope of the authorized program in each State. B. What is the history of the codification of Texas’ hazardous waste management program? The EPA incorporated by reference Texas’ then authorized hazardous waste program effective December 3, 1997 (62 FR 49163), November 15, 1999 (64 FR 49673), December 29, 2008 (73 FR 64252), May 6, 2011 (76 FR 12283), and January 9, 2013 (77 FR 71344). In this document, EPA is revising Subpart SS of 40 CFR part 272 to include the recent PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 authorization revision actions effective November 3, 2014 (79 FR 52220). C. What codification decisions have we made in this rule? In this rule, the EPA is finalizing regulatory text that includes incorporation by reference. In accordance with requirements of 1 CFR 51.5, the EPA is finalizing the incorporation by reference of the Texas rules described in the amendments to 40 CFR part 272 set forth below. The EPA has made, and will continue to make, these documents available electronically through www.regulations.gov and in hard copy at the appropriate EPA office (see the ADDRESSES section of this preamble for more information). The purpose of this Federal Register document is to codify Texas’ base hazardous waste management program E:\FR\FM\28DER1.SGM 28DER1 80676 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 248 / Monday, December 28, 2015 / Rules and Regulations and its revisions to that program. This document incorporates by reference Texas’ hazardous waste statutes and regulations, and clarifies which of these provisions are included in the authorized and Federally enforceable program. By codifying Texas’ authorized program and by amending the Code of Federal Regulations, the public will be more easily able to discern the status of Federally approved requirements of the Texas hazardous waste management program. The EPA is incorporating by reference the Texas authorized hazardous waste program in subpart SS of 40 CFR part 272. Section 272.2201 incorporates by reference Texas’ authorized hazardous waste statutes and regulations. Section 272.2201 also references the statutory provisions (including procedural and enforcement provisions), which provide the legal basis for the State’s implementation of the hazardous waste management program, the Memorandum of Agreement, the Attorney General’s Statements and the Program Description, which are approved as part of the hazardous waste management program under Subtitle C of RCRA. D. What is the effect of Texas’ codification on enforcement? mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES The EPA retains its authority under statutory provisions, including but not limited to, RCRA sections 3007, 3008, 3013, and 7003, and other applicable statutory and regulatory provisions to undertake inspections and enforcement actions, and to issue orders in authorized States. With respect to these actions, the EPA will rely on Federal sanctions, Federal inspection authorities, and Federal procedures, rather than any authorized State analogues to these provisions. Therefore, the EPA is not incorporating by reference such particular, approved Texas procedural and enforcement authorities. Section 272.2201(c)(2) of 40 CFR lists the statutory and regulatory provisions which provide the legal basis for the State’s implementation of the hazardous waste management program, as well as, those procedural and enforcement authorities that are part of the States approved program, but these are not incorporated by reference. E. What State provisions are not part of the codification? The public needs to be aware that some provisions of Texas’ hazardous waste management program are not part of the Federally authorized State program. These non-authorized provisions include: VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:41 Dec 24, 2015 Jkt 238001 (1) Provisions that are not part of the RCRA Subtitle C program because they are ‘‘broader in scope’’ than RCRA Subtitle C (see 40 CFR 271.1(i)); (2) Federal rules for which Texas is not authorized, but which have been incorporated into the State regulations because of the way the State adopted Federal regulations by reference: (3) Unauthorized amendments to authorized State provisions; (4) New unauthorized State requirements; and (5) Federal rules for which Texas is authorized, but which were vacated by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit (D.C. Cir. No. 98– 1379 and 98–1379; June 27, 2014). State provisions that are ‘‘broader in scope’’ than the Federal program are not part of the RCRA authorized program, and the EPA will not enforce them. Therefore, they are not incorporated by reference in 40 CFR part 272. For reference and clarity, 40 CFR 272.2201(c)(3) lists the Texas regulatory provisions which are ‘‘broader in scope’’ than the Federal program and which are not part of the authorized program being incorporated by reference. ‘‘Broader in scope’’ provisions cannot be enforced by the EPA; the State, however, may enforce such provisions under State law. Additionally, Texas’ hazardous waste regulations include amendments which have not been authorized by the EPA. Since the EPA cannot enforce a State’s requirements which have not been reviewed and authorized in accordance with RCRA section 3006 and 40 CFR part 271, it is important to be precise in delineating the scope of a State’s authorized hazardous waste program. Regulatory provisions that have not been authorized by the EPA include amendments to previously authorized State regulations, as well as, certain Federal rules and new State requirements. Texas has adopted but is not authorized for the following Federal rules published in the Federal Register on April 12, 1996 (61 FR 16290); December 5, 1997 (62 FR 64504); June 8, 2000 (65 FR 36365); and January 8, 2010 (75 FR 1236). Therefore, these Federal amendments included in Texas’ adoption by reference at 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) sections 335.112(a)(1) and (a)(4), 335.152(a)(1) and (a)(4), and 335.431(c)(1) and (c)(3), are not part of the State’s authorized program and are not part of the incorporation by reference addressed by this Federal Register document. Texas has adopted and was authorized for the following Federal rules, which have since been vacated by PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit (D.C. Cir. No. 98– 1379 and 08–1144, respectively, June 27, 2014): (1) the Comparable Fuels Exclusion at 40 CFR 261.4(a)(16) and 261.38 published in the Federal Register on June 19, 1998 (63 FR 33782), as amended on June 15, 2010 (75 FR 33712); and (2) the Gasification Exclusion Rule published on January 2, 2008 (73 FR 57). In those instances where Texas has made unauthorized amendments to previously authorized sections of State code, the EPA is identifying in 40 CFR 272.2201(c)(4)(i) any regulations which, while adopted by the State and incorporated by reference, include language not authorized by the EPA. Those unauthorized portions of the State regulations are not Federally enforceable. Thus, notwithstanding the language in Texas hazardous waste regulations incorporated by reference at 40 CFR 272.2201(c)(1), the EPA will only enforce those portions of the State regulations that are actually authorized by the EPA. For the convenience of the regulated community, the actual State regulatory text authorized by the EPA for the citations listed at § 272.2201(c)(4) (i.e. without the unauthorized amendments) is compiled as a separate document, Addendum to the EPA Approved Texas Regulatory Requirements Applicable to the Hazardous Waste Management Program, November 2014. This document is available from EPA Region 6, EPA Region 6 Library, 12th Floor, 1445 Ross Avenue, Dallas, Texas 75202– 2733, Phone number: (214) 665–6444. State regulations that are not incorporated by reference in this rule at 40 CFR 272.2201(c)(1), or that are not listed in 40 CFR 272.2201(c)(2) (‘‘legal basis for the State’s implementation of the hazardous waste management program’’), 40 CFR 272.2201(c)(3) (‘‘broader in scope’’) or 40 CFR 272.2201(c)(4) (‘‘unauthorized State amendments’’), are considered new unauthorized State requirements. These requirements are not Federally enforceable. With respect to any requirement pursuant to the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984 (HSWA) for which the State has not yet been authorized, the EPA will continue to enforce the Federal HSWA standards until the State is authorized for these provisions. F. What will be the effect of Federal HSWA requirements on the codification? The EPA is not amending 40 CFR part 272 to include HSWA requirements and E:\FR\FM\28DER1.SGM 28DER1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 248 / Monday, December 28, 2015 / Rules and Regulations mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES prohibitions that are implemented by EPA. Section 3006(g) of RCRA provides that any HSWA requirement or prohibition (including implementing regulations) takes effect in authorized and not authorized States at the same time. A HSWA requirement or prohibition supersedes any less stringent or inconsistent State provision which may have been previously authorized by the EPA (50 FR 28702, July 15, 1985). The EPA has the authority to implement HSWA requirements in all States, including authorized States, until the States become authorized for such requirement or prohibition. Authorized States are required to revise their programs to adopt the HSWA requirements and prohibitions, and then to seek authorization for those revisions pursuant to 40 CFR part 271. Instead of amending the 40 CFR part 272 every time a new HSWA provision takes effect under the authority of RCRA section 3006(g), the EPA will wait until the State receives authorization for its analog to the new HSWA provision before amending the State’s 40 CFR part 272 incorporation by reference. Until then, persons wanting to know whether a HSWA requirement or prohibition is in effect should refer to 40 CFR 271.1(j), as amended, which lists each such provision. Some existing State requirements may be similar to the HSWA requirement implemented by the EPA. However, until the EPA authorizes those State requirements, the EPA can only enforce the HSWA requirements and not the State analogs. The EPA will not codify those State requirements until the State receives authorization for those requirements. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has exempted this action from the requirements of Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993), and therefore, this action is not subject to review by OMB. This rule incorporated by reference Texas’ authorized hazardous waste management regulations, and imposes no additional requirements beyond those imposed by State law. Accordingly, I certify that this action 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.). Because this rule merely incorporates by reference certain existing State hazardous waste management program requirements which the EPA already approved under 40 CFR part 271, and with which regulated entities must already comply, VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:41 Dec 24, 2015 Jkt 238001 it 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). This action will not have 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, as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999), because it merely incorporates by reference existing State hazardous waste management program requirements without altering the relationship or the distribution of power and responsibilities established by RCRA. This action also does not have Tribal implications within the meaning of Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 6, 2000). This action also is not subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), because it is not economically significant, and it does not make decisions based on environmental health or safety risks. This action is not subject to Executive Order 13211, ‘‘Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply Distribution or Use’’ (66 FR 28344, May 22, 2001) because it is not a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866. The requirements being codified are the result of Texas’ voluntary participation in the EPA’s State program authorization process under RCRA Subtitle C. As required by section 3 of Executive Order 12988 (61 FR 4729, February 7, 1996), in issuing this rule, the EPA has taken the necessary steps to eliminate drafting errors and ambiguity, minimize potential litigation, and provide a clear legal standard for affected conduct. The EPA has complied with Executive Order 12630 (53 FR 8859, March 15, 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. 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.). 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 PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 80677 of the United States. The EPA will submit a report containing this document 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 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).

(4) Unauthorized State amendments and provisions. (i) The following authorized provisions of the Texas regulations include amendments published in the Texas Register that are not approved by EPA.

AGENCY: ACTION: Notice of determination. This notice of determination provides the FRA Administrator’s minimum annual random drug and alcohol testing rates for calendar year 2016. SUMMARY: This notice of determination is effective December 28, 2015. DATES: Jerry Powers, FRA Drug and Alcohol Program Manager, W33–310, Federal Railroad Administration, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., Washington, DC 20590, (telephone 202–493–6313); or Sam Noe, FRA Drug and Alcohol Program Specialist, (telephone 615–719–2951). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: FRA determines the minimum annual random drug testing rate and minimum random alcohol testing rate for the next calendar year based on railroad industry data available for two previous calendar years (for this Notice, calendar years 2013 and 2014). Railroad industry data submitted to FRA’s Management Information System shows the rail industry’s random drug testing positive rate remained below 1.0 percent for the applicable two calendar years. FRA’s Administrator has therefore determined the minimum annual random drug testing rate for the period January 1, 2016, through December 31, 2016, will remain at 25 percent of covered railroad employees under 49 CFR 219.602. In addition, because the industry-wide random alcohol testing violation rate remained below 0.5 percent for the applicable two calendar years, the Administrator has determined the minimum random alcohol testing rate will remain at 10 percent of covered railroad employees for the period January 1, 2016, through December 31, 2016 under 49 CFR 219.608. Because these rates represent minimums, railroads may conduct FRA random testing at higher rates. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\28DER1.SGM 28DER1

Texas: Final Authorization of State-Initiated Changes and 
Incorporation by Reference of State Hazardous Waste Management Program

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Direct final rule.

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

SUMMARY: During a review of Texas' regulations, the Environmental 
Protection Agency (EPA) identified a variety of State-initiated changes 
to its hazardous waste program under the Resource Conservation and 
Recovery Act (RCRA). We have determined that these changes are minor 
and satisfy all requirements needed to qualify for Final authorization 
and are authorizing the State-initiated changes through this direct 
Final action. In addition, this document corrects technical errors made 
in the September 3, 2014, Federal Register authorization document for 
Texas.
    The Solid Waste Disposal Act, as amended, commonly referred to as 
the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), allows the 
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to authorize States to operate 
their hazardous waste management programs in lieu of the Federal 
program. The EPA uses the regulations entitled ``Approved State 
Hazardous Waste Management Programs'' to provide notice of the 
authorization status of State programs and to incorporate by reference 
those provisions of the State statutes and regulations that will be 
subject to the EPA's inspection and enforcement. The rule codifies in 
the regulations the prior approval of Texas' hazardous waste management 
program and incorporates by reference authorized provisions of the 
State's statutes and regulations.

DATES: This regulation is effective February 26, 2016, unless the EPA 
receives adverse written comment on this regulation by the close of 
business January 27, 2016. If the EPA receives such comments, it will 
publish a timely

[[Page 80673]]

withdrawal of this direct final rule in the Federal Register informing 
the public that this rule will not take effect. The Director of the 
Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference as of 
February 26, 2016 in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552(a) and 1 CFR part 51.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Authorization of State-Initiated Changes

A. Why are revisions to State programs necessary?

    States which have received Final authorization from the 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 hazardous waste program. As the Federal 
program changes, the States must change their programs and ask the EPA 
to authorize the changes. Changes to State hazardous waste 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 the EPA's regulations 
in 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) parts 124, 260 through 268, 
270, 273 and 279. States can also initiate their own changes to their 
hazardous waste program and these changes must then be authorized.

B. What decisions have we made in this rule?

    We conclude that Texas' revisions to its authorized program meet 
all of the statutory and regulatory requirements established by RCRA. 
We found that the State-initiated changes make Texas' rules more clear 
or conform more closely to the Federal equivalents, and are so minor in 
nature that a formal application is unnecessary. Therefore, we grant 
Texas final authorization to operate its hazardous waste program with 
the changes described in the table at Section G below. Texas has 
responsibility for permitting Treatment, Storage, and Disposal 
Facilities (TSDFs) within its borders (except in Indian Country) and 
for carrying out all authorized aspects of the RCRA program, 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, the EPA will implement those requirements and 
prohibitions in Texas, 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 Texas, 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. Texas has enforcement responsibilities under its State hazardous 
waste program for violations of such program, but the EPA retains its 
authority under RCRA sections 3007, 3008, 3013, and 7003, which 
include, among others, authority to:
     Do inspections, and require monitoring, tests, analyses, 
or reports;
     Enforce RCRA requirements and suspend or revoke permits; 
and
     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 statutes and regulations for which 
Texas is being authorized by this direct action are already effective 
and are not changed by this action.

D. Why wasn't there a proposed rule before this rule?

    The EPA did not publish a proposal before this rule because we view 
this as a routine program change and do not expect comments that oppose 
this approval. We are providing an opportunity for public comment now. 
In addition to this rule, in the Proposed Rules section of this Federal 
Register, we are publishing a separate document that proposes to 
authorize the State program changes.

E. What happens if EPA receives comments that oppose this action?

    If the EPA receives comments that oppose the authorization of the 
State-initiated changes in this codification document, we will withdraw 
this rule by publishing a timely document in the Federal Register 
before the rule

[[Page 80674]]

becomes effective. The EPA will base any further decision on the 
authorization of the State program changes on the proposal mentioned in 
the previous paragraph. We will then address all public comments in a 
later final rule. If you want to comment on this authorization, you 
must do so at this time. If we receive comments that oppose only the 
authorization of a particular change to the State hazardous waste 
program, we may withdraw only that part of this rule, but the 
authorization of the program changes that the comments do not oppose 
will become effective on the date specified above. The Federal Register 
withdrawal document will specify which part of the authorization of the 
State program will become effective and which part is being withdrawn.
    The purpose of this Federal Register document is to codify Texas' 
base hazardous waste management program and its revisions to that 
program. The EPA has already provided notices and opportunity for 
comments on the Agency's decisions to codify the Texas program, and the 
EPA is not now reopening the decisions, nor requesting comments, on the 
Texas authorization as published in the Federal Register notices 
specified in Section I.F. of this document.

F. For what has Texas previously been authorized?

    Texas initially received final authorization on December 26, 1984 
(49 FR 48300), to implement its Base Hazardous Waste Management 
Program. This authorization was clarified in a notice published March 
26, 1985 (50 FR 11858). Texas received authorization for revisions to 
its program, effective October 4, 1985 (51 FR 3952), February 17, 1987 
(51 FR 45320), March 15, 1990 (55 FR 7318), July 23, 1990 (55 FR 
21383), October 21, 1991 (56 FR 41626), December 4, 1992 (57 FR 45719), 
June 27, 1994 (59 FR 16987), June 27, 1994 (59 FR 17273), November 26, 
1997 (62 FR 47947), December 3, 1997 (62 FR 49163), October 18, 1999 
(64 FR 44836), November 15, 1999 (64 FR 49673), September 11, 2000 (65 
FR 43246), June 14, 2005 (70 FR 34371), December 29, 2008, (73 FR 
64252), July 13, 2009 (74 FR 22469), May 6, 2011 (76 FR 12283), May 7, 
2012 (77 FR 13200), January 9, 2013 (77 FR 71344) and November 3, 2014 
(79 FR 52220).

G. What changes are we authorizing with this action?

    The State has made amendments to the provisions listed in the table 
which follows. These amendments clarify the State's regulations, and 
make the State's regulations more internally consistent. The State's 
laws and regulations, as amended by these provisions, provide authority 
which remains equivalent to, no less stringent than, and not broader in 
scope than the Federal laws and regulations. These State-initiated 
changes satisfy the requirements of 40 CFR 271.21(a). We are granting 
Texas final authorization to carry out the following provisions of the 
State's program, in lieu of the Federal program. These provisions are 
analogous to the indicated RCRA regulations found at 40 CFR, as of July 
1, 2010. The Texas provisions are from the Texas Administrative Code 
(TAC), Title 30, amended to be effective February 21, 2013 (except as 
noted below).

H. Who handles permits after the authorization takes effect?

    This authorization does not affect the status of State permits and 
those permits issued by the EPA, because no new substantive 
requirements are a part of these revisions.

I. How does this action affect Indian Country (18 U.S.C. 1151) in 
Texas?

    Texas is not authorized to carry out its Hazardous Waste Program in 
Indian Country within the State. This authority remains with EPA. 
Therefore, this action has no effect in Indian Country.

II. Technical Corrections

    The following technical corrections are made to the September 3, 
2014, Texas authorization Federal Register document (79 FR 52220;

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

III. Incorporation-by-Reference

A. What is codification?

    Codification is the process of placing a State's statutes and 
regulations that comprise the State's authorized hazardous waste 
management program into the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). Section 
3006(b) of RCRA, as amended, allows the Environmental Protection Agency 
(EPA) to authorize State hazardous waste management programs to operate 
in lieu of the Federal hazardous waste management regulatory program. 
The EPA codifies its authorization of State programs in 40 CFR part 
272, and incorporates by reference State statutes and regulations that 
the EPA will enforce under sections 3007 and 3008 of RCRA and any other 
applicable statutory provisions.
    The incorporation by reference of State authorized programs in the 
CFR should substantially enhance the public's ability to discern the 
current status of the authorized State program and State requirements 
that can be Federally enforced. This effort provides clear notice to 
the public of the scope of the authorized program in each State.

B. What is the history of the codification of Texas' hazardous waste 
management program?

    The EPA incorporated by reference Texas' then authorized hazardous 
waste program effective December 3, 1997 (62 FR 49163), November 15, 
1999 (64 FR 49673), December 29, 2008 (73 FR 64252), May 6, 2011 (76 FR 
12283), and January 9, 2013 (77 FR 71344). In this document, EPA is 
revising Subpart SS of 40 CFR part 272 to include the recent 
authorization revision actions effective November 3, 2014 (79 FR 
52220).

C. What codification decisions have we made in this rule?

    In this rule, the EPA is finalizing regulatory text that includes 
incorporation by reference. In accordance with requirements of 1 CFR 
51.5, the EPA is finalizing the incorporation by reference of the Texas 
rules described in the amendments to 40 CFR part 272 set forth below. 
The EPA has made, and will continue to make, these documents available 
electronically through www.regulations.gov and in hard copy at the 
appropriate EPA office (see the ADDRESSES section of this preamble for 
more information).
    The purpose of this Federal Register document is to codify Texas' 
base hazardous waste management program

[[Page 80676]]

and its revisions to that program. This document incorporates by 
reference Texas' hazardous waste statutes and regulations, and 
clarifies which of these provisions are included in the authorized and 
Federally enforceable program. By codifying Texas' authorized program 
and by amending the Code of Federal Regulations, the public will be 
more easily able to discern the status of Federally approved 
requirements of the Texas hazardous waste management program.
    The EPA is incorporating by reference the Texas authorized 
hazardous waste program in subpart SS of 40 CFR part 272. Section 
272.2201 incorporates by reference Texas' authorized hazardous waste 
statutes and regulations. Section 272.2201 also references the 
statutory provisions (including procedural and enforcement provisions), 
which provide the legal basis for the State's implementation of the 
hazardous waste management program, the Memorandum of Agreement, the 
Attorney General's Statements and the Program Description, which are 
approved as part of the hazardous waste management program under 
Subtitle C of RCRA.

D. What is the effect of Texas' codification on enforcement?

    The EPA retains its authority under statutory provisions, including 
but not limited to, RCRA sections 3007, 3008, 3013, and 7003, and other 
applicable statutory and regulatory provisions to undertake inspections 
and enforcement actions, and to issue orders in authorized States. With 
respect to these actions, the EPA will rely on Federal sanctions, 
Federal inspection authorities, and Federal procedures, rather than any 
authorized State analogues to these provisions. Therefore, the EPA is 
not incorporating by reference such particular, approved Texas 
procedural and enforcement authorities. Section 272.2201(c)(2) of 40 
CFR lists the statutory and regulatory provisions which provide the 
legal basis for the State's implementation of the hazardous waste 
management program, as well as, those procedural and enforcement 
authorities that are part of the States approved program, but these are 
not incorporated by reference.

E. What State provisions are not part of the codification?

    The public needs to be aware that some provisions of Texas' 
hazardous waste management program are not part of the Federally 
authorized State program. These non-authorized provisions include:
    (1) Provisions that are not part of the RCRA Subtitle C program 
because they are ``broader in scope'' than RCRA Subtitle C (see 40 CFR 
271.1(i));
    (2) Federal rules for which Texas is not authorized, but which have 
been incorporated into the State regulations because of the way the 
State adopted Federal regulations by reference:
    (3) Unauthorized amendments to authorized State provisions;
    (4) New unauthorized State requirements; and
    (5) Federal rules for which Texas is authorized, but which were 
vacated by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia 
Circuit (D.C. Cir. No. 98-1379 and 98-1379; June 27, 2014).
    State provisions that are ``broader in scope'' than the Federal 
program are not part of the RCRA authorized program, and the EPA will 
not enforce them. Therefore, they are not incorporated by reference in 
40 CFR part 272. For reference and clarity, 40 CFR 272.2201(c)(3) lists 
the Texas regulatory provisions which are ``broader in scope'' than the 
Federal program and which are not part of the authorized program being 
incorporated by reference. ``Broader in scope'' provisions cannot be 
enforced by the EPA; the State, however, may enforce such provisions 
under State law.
    Additionally, Texas' hazardous waste regulations include amendments 
which have not been authorized by the EPA. Since the EPA cannot enforce 
a State's requirements which have not been reviewed and authorized in 
accordance with RCRA section 3006 and 40 CFR part 271, it is important 
to be precise in delineating the scope of a State's authorized 
hazardous waste program. Regulatory provisions that have not been 
authorized by the EPA include amendments to previously authorized State 
regulations, as well as, certain Federal rules and new State 
requirements.
    Texas has adopted but is not authorized for the following Federal 
rules published in the Federal Register on April 12, 1996 (61 FR 
16290); December 5, 1997 (62 FR 64504); June 8, 2000 (65 FR 36365); and 
January 8, 2010 (75 FR 1236). Therefore, these Federal amendments 
included in Texas' adoption by reference at 30 Texas Administrative 
Code (TAC) sections 335.112(a)(1) and (a)(4), 335.152(a)(1) and (a)(4), 
and 335.431(c)(1) and (c)(3), are not part of the State's authorized 
program and are not part of the incorporation by reference addressed by 
this Federal Register document.
    Texas has adopted and was authorized for the following Federal 
rules, which have since been vacated by the U.S. Court of Appeals for 
the District of Columbia Circuit (D.C. Cir. No. 98-1379 and 08-1144, 
respectively, June 27, 2014): (1) the Comparable Fuels Exclusion at 40 
CFR 261.4(a)(16) and 261.38 published in the Federal Register on June 
19, 1998 (63 FR 33782), as amended on June 15, 2010 (75 FR 33712); and 
(2) the Gasification Exclusion Rule published on January 2, 2008 (73 FR 
57).
    In those instances where Texas has made unauthorized amendments to 
previously authorized sections of State code, the EPA is identifying in 
40 CFR 272.2201(c)(4)(i) any regulations which, while adopted by the 
State and incorporated by reference, include language not authorized by 
the EPA. Those unauthorized portions of the State regulations are not 
Federally enforceable. Thus, notwithstanding the language in Texas 
hazardous waste regulations incorporated by reference at 40 CFR 
272.2201(c)(1), the EPA will only enforce those portions of the State 
regulations that are actually authorized by the EPA. For the 
convenience of the regulated community, the actual State regulatory 
text authorized by the EPA for the citations listed at Sec.  
272.2201(c)(4) (i.e. without the unauthorized amendments) is compiled 
as a separate document, Addendum to the EPA Approved Texas Regulatory 
Requirements Applicable to the Hazardous Waste Management Program, 
November 2014. This document is available from EPA Region 6, EPA Region 
6 Library, 12th Floor, 1445 Ross Avenue, Dallas, Texas 75202-2733, 
Phone number: (214) 665-6444.
    State regulations that are not incorporated by reference in this 
rule at 40 CFR 272.2201(c)(1), or that are not listed in 40 CFR 
272.2201(c)(2) (``legal basis for the State's implementation of the 
hazardous waste management program''), 40 CFR 272.2201(c)(3) (``broader 
in scope'') or 40 CFR 272.2201(c)(4) (``unauthorized State 
amendments''), are considered new unauthorized State requirements. 
These requirements are not Federally enforceable.
    With respect to any requirement pursuant to the Hazardous and Solid 
Waste Amendments of 1984 (HSWA) for which the State has not yet been 
authorized, the EPA will continue to enforce the Federal HSWA standards 
until the State is authorized for these provisions.

F. What will be the effect of Federal HSWA requirements on the 
codification?

    The EPA is not amending 40 CFR part 272 to include HSWA 
requirements and

[[Page 80677]]

prohibitions that are implemented by EPA. Section 3006(g) of RCRA 
provides that any HSWA requirement or prohibition (including 
implementing regulations) takes effect in authorized and not authorized 
States at the same time. A HSWA requirement or prohibition supersedes 
any less stringent or inconsistent State provision which may have been 
previously authorized by the EPA (50 FR 28702, July 15, 1985). The EPA 
has the authority to implement HSWA requirements in all States, 
including authorized States, until the States become authorized for 
such requirement or prohibition. Authorized States are required to 
revise their programs to adopt the HSWA requirements and prohibitions, 
and then to seek authorization for those revisions pursuant to 40 CFR 
part 271.
    Instead of amending the 40 CFR part 272 every time a new HSWA 
provision takes effect under the authority of RCRA section 3006(g), the 
EPA will wait until the State receives authorization for its analog to 
the new HSWA provision before amending the State's 40 CFR part 272 
incorporation by reference. Until then, persons wanting to know whether 
a HSWA requirement or prohibition is in effect should refer to 40 CFR 
271.1(j), as amended, which lists each such provision.
    Some existing State requirements may be similar to the HSWA 
requirement implemented by the EPA. However, until the EPA authorizes 
those State requirements, the EPA can only enforce the HSWA 
requirements and not the State analogs. The EPA will not codify those 
State requirements until the State receives authorization for those 
requirements.

Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has exempted this action 
from the requirements of Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 
1993), and therefore, this action is not subject to review by OMB. This 
rule incorporated by reference Texas' authorized hazardous waste 
management regulations, and imposes no additional requirements beyond 
those imposed by State law. Accordingly, I certify that this action 
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.). Because this rule merely incorporates by reference certain 
existing State hazardous waste management program requirements which 
the EPA already approved under 40 CFR part 271, and with which 
regulated entities must already comply, it 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).
    This action will not have 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, as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 
43255, August 10, 1999), because it merely incorporates by reference 
existing State hazardous waste management program requirements without 
altering the relationship or the distribution of power and 
responsibilities established by RCRA. This action also does not have 
Tribal implications within the meaning of Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 
67249, November 6, 2000).
    This action also is not subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 
19885, April 23, 1997), because it is not economically significant, and 
it does not make decisions based on environmental health or safety 
risks. This action is not subject to Executive Order 13211, ``Actions 
Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply 
Distribution or Use'' (66 FR 28344, May 22, 2001) because it is not a 
significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866.
    The requirements being codified are the result of Texas' voluntary 
participation in the EPA's State program authorization process under 
RCRA Subtitle C. As required by section 3 of Executive Order 12988 (61 
FR 4729, February 7, 1996), in issuing this rule, the EPA has taken the 
necessary steps to eliminate drafting errors and ambiguity, minimize 
potential litigation, and provide a clear legal standard for affected 
conduct. The EPA has complied with Executive Order 12630 (53 FR 8859, 
March 15, 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. 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.).
    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. The EPA will submit a report containing this document 
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 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).

authorized provisions of the Texas regulations include amendments 
published in the Texas Register that are not approved by EPA. Such 
unauthorized amendments are not part of the State's authorized program 
and are, therefore, not Federally enforceable. Thus, notwithstanding 
the language in the Texas hazardous waste regulations incorporated by 
reference at paragraph (c)(1)(i) of this section, EPA will enforce the 
State provisions that are actually authorized by EPA. The effective 
dates of the State's authorized provisions are listed in the table in 
this paragraph (c)(4)(i). The actual State regulatory text authorized 
by EPA (i.e., without the unauthorized amendments) is available as a 
separate document, Addendum to the EPA-Approved Texas Regulatory and 
Statutory Requirements Applicable to the Hazardous Waste Management 
Program, November, 2014. Copies of the document can be obtained from 
U.S. EPA Region 6, 1445 Ross Avenue, Suite 1200, Dallas, TX 75202.

    (ii) Texas has partially or fully adopted, but is not authorized to 
implement, the Federal rules that are listed in the table in this 
paragraph (c)(4)(ii). The EPA will continue to implement the Federal 
HSWA requirements for which Texas is not authorized until the State 
receives specific authorization for those requirements. The EPA will 
not enforce the non-HSWA Federal rules although they may be enforceable 
under State law. For those Federal rules that contain both HSWA and 
non-HSWA requirements, the EPA will enforce only the HSWA portions of 
the rules.
