Oklahoma: Incorporation by Reference of Approved State Hazardous 
Waste Management Program

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Direct final rule.

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

SUMMARY: 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 Oklahoma's hazardous waste 
management program and incorporates by reference authorized provisions 
of the State's statutes and regulations.

DATES: This regulation is effective October 9, 2012, unless the EPA 
receives adverse written comment on this regulation by the close of 
business September 6, 2012. If the EPA receives such comments, it will 
publish a timely withdrawal of this direct final rule in the Federal 
Register informing the public that this rule will not take effect.

[[Page 46965]]

The Director of the Federal Register approves this incorporation by 
reference as of October 9, 2012 in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552(a) and 
1 CFR part 51.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

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 authorization and codification of 
Oklahoma's hazardous waste management program?

    Oklahoma initially received Final authorization effective January 
10, 1985, (49 FR 50362) to implement its Base Hazardous Waste 
Management program. Subsequently, the EPA approved additional program 
revision applications effective on June 18, 1990 (55 FR 14280), 
November 27, 1990 (55 FR 39274), June 3, 1991 (56 FR 13411), November 
19, 1991 (56 FR 47675), November 29, 1993 (58 FR 50854), December 21, 
1994 (59 FR 51116), April 27, 1995 (60 FR 2699), March 14, 1997 (62 FR 
12100), July 14, 1998 (63 FR 23673), November 23, 1998 (63 FR 50528), 
February 8, 1999 (63 FR 67800), March 30, 2000 (65 FR 16528), July 10, 
2000 (65 FR 29981) March 5, 2001 (66 FR 28), June 9, 2003 (68 FR 
17308), April 6, 2009 (74 FR 5994), May 6, 2011 (76 FR 18927), and May 
14, 2012 (77 FR 15273). The EPA first incorporated by reference 
Oklahoma's hazardous waste program effective December 13, 1993 (58 FR 
52679), and updated the incorporation by reference effective July 14, 
1998 (63 FR 23673), October 25, 1999 (64 FR 46567), October 27, 2003 
(68 FR 51488), August 27, 2010 (75 FR 36546), and July 16, 2012 (77 FR 
29231). In this document, the EPA is revising Subpart LL of 40 CFR part 
272 to include the recent authorization revision actions effective May 
6, 2011 (76 FR 18927) and May 14, 2012 (77 FR 15273).

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

    The purpose of this Federal Register document is to codify 
Oklahoma's base hazardous waste management program and its revisions 
through RCRA Cluster XX. The EPA provided notices and opportunity for 
comments on the Agency's decisions to authorize the Oklahoma program, 
and the EPA is not now reopening the decisions, nor requesting 
comments, on the Oklahoma authorizations as published in the Federal 
Register notices specified in Section B of this document.
    This document incorporates by reference Oklahoma's hazardous waste 
statutes and regulations and clarifies which of these provisions are 
included in the authorized and Federally enforceable program. By 
codifying Oklahoma's 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 Oklahoma hazardous 
waste management program.
    The EPA is incorporating by reference the Oklahoma authorized 
hazardous waste program in subpart LL of 40 CFR part 272. Section 
272.1851 incorporates by reference Oklahoma's authorized hazardous 
waste statutes and regulations. Section 272.1851 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

[[Page 46966]]

Description, which are approved as part of the hazardous waste 
management program under Subtitle C of RCRA.

D. What is the effect of Oklahoma's 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 Oklahoma 
procedural and enforcement authorities. Section 272.1851(c)(2) of 40 
CFR lists the statutory 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 State's 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 Oklahoma's 
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 Oklahoma is not authorized, but which 
have been incorporated into the State regulations because of the way 
the State adopted Federal regulations by reference.
    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 272.1851(c)(3) lists 
the Oklahoma 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.
    Oklahoma has adopted but is not authorized for the Federal rules 
published in the Federal Register on October 5, 1990 (55 FR 40834); 
February 1, 1991 (56 FR 3978); February 13, 1991 (56 FR 5910); April 2, 
1991 (56 FR 13406); May 1, 1991 (56 FR 19951); December 23, 1991 (56 FR 
66365); June 29, 1995 (60 FR 33912), May 26, 1998 (63 FR 28556), June 
14, 2005 (70 FR 34538), August 1, 2005 (70 FR 44150); December 19, 2008 
(73 FR 77954); and June 15, 2010 (75 FR 33712). Therefore, these 
Federal amendments included in Oklahoma's adoption by reference at 
252:205-3-2(b) through 252:205-3-2(m) of the Oklahoma Administrative 
Code, are not part of the State's authorized program and are not part 
of the incorporation by reference addressed by this Federal Register 
document.
    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 prohibitions that are implemented by the 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.

G. 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 incorporates by reference Oklahoma's 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 (Pub. L. 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 authorized 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 rule is not subject to Executive Order 13211, ``Actions 
Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, 
Distribution, or Use'' (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001), because it is not a 
significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866.

[[Page 46967]]

    The requirements being codified are the result of Oklahoma's 
voluntary participation in the EPA's State program authorization 
process under RCRA Subtitle C. 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. 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 amended 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).

    Authority:  This action is issued under the authority of 
Sections 2002(a), 3006 and 7004(b) of the Solid Waste Disposal Act 
as amended, 42 U.S.C. 6912(a), 6926, 6974(b).
