Abstract: In order for a State to obtain final authorization for a State hazardous waste program or to revise its previously authorized program, it must submit an official application to the EPA Regional office for approval. The purpose of the application is to enable the EPA to properly determine whether the State’s program meets the requirements of § 3006 of RCRA. A State with an approved program may voluntarily transfer program responsibilities to EPA by notifying the EPA of the proposed transfer, as required by section 271.23. Further, the EPA may withdraw a State’s authorized program under section 271.23. State program revision may be necessary when the controlling Federal or State statutory or regulatory authority is modified or supplemented. In the event that the State is revising its program by adopting new Federal requirements, the State shall prepare and submit modified revisions of the program description, Attorney General’s statement, Memorandum of Agreement, or such other documents as the EPA determines to be necessary. The State shall inform the EPA of any proposed modifications to its basic statutory or regulatory authority in accordance with section 271.21. If a State is proposing to transfer all or any part of any program from the approved State agency to any other agency, it must notify the EPA in accordance with section 271.21 and submit revised organizational charts as required under section 271.6, in accordance with section 271.21. These paperwork requirements are mandatory under § 3006(a). The EPA will use the information submitted by the State in PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48307 order to determine whether the State’s program meets the statutory and regulatory requirements for authorization. Form numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: State/ territorial governments. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (RCRA § 3006(a)). Estimated number of respondents: 50. Frequency of response: Annual. Total estimated burden: 9,996 hours per year. Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $386,618 (per year), includes $386,618 in annualized labor and $0 in annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the estimates: There is decrease of 3,864 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This is due to the decrease in the number of States revising their base RCRA programs from 10 to 6. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.
