[EPA-R06-RCRA-2012-0471; FRL9701-6]


Oklahoma: Incorporation by Reference of State Hazardous Waste 
Management Program

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: The EPA proposes to codify in the regulations entitled 
``Approved State Hazardous Waste Management Programs'', Oklahoma's 
authorized hazardous waste program. The EPA will incorporate by 
reference into the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) those provisions 
of the State regulations that are authorized and that the EPA will 
enforce under the Solid Waste Disposal Act, commonly referred to as the 
Resource Conversation and Recovery Act (RCRA).

DATES: Send written comments by September 6, 2012.

ADDRESSES: Send written comments to Alima Patterson, Region 6 Regional 
Authorization Coordinator, or Julia Banks, Codification Coordinator, 
State/Tribal Oversight Section (6PD-O), Multimedia Planning and 
Permitting Division at the address shown below. You can examine copies 
of the materials that form the basis for this authorization and 
incorporation by reference during normal business hours at the 
following location: EPA Region 6, 1445 Ross Avenue, Dallas, Texas 
75202-2733, phone number (214) 665-6533 or (214) 665-8178. You may also 
submit comments electronically or through hand delivery/courier; please 
follow the detailed instructions in the ADDRESSES section of the direct 
final rule which is located in the Rules section of this Federal 
Register.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Alima Patterson (214) 665-8533 or 
Julia Banks (214) 665-8178.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of 
this Federal Register, the EPA is codifying and incorporating by 
reference the State's hazardous waste program as a direct final rule. 
The EPA did not make a proposal prior to the direct final rule because 
we believe these actions are not controversial and do not expect 
comments that oppose them. We have explained the reasons for this 
codification and incorporation by reference in the preamble to the 
direct final rule. Unless we get written comments which oppose this 
incorporation by reference during the comment period, the direct final 
rule will become effective on the date it establishes, and we will not 
take further action on this proposal. If we get comments that oppose 
these actions, we will withdraw the direct final rule and it will not 
take effect. We will then respond to public comments in a later final 
rule based on this proposal. You may not have another opportunity for 
comment. If you want to comment on this action, you must do so at this 
time. For additional information, please see the direct final rule 
published in the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of this Federal 
Register.

    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, and 6974(b).

    Dated: July 5, 2012.
Samuel Coleman,
Acting Regional Administrator, EPA Region 6.
