Arkansas: Final Authorization of State Hazardous Waste Management 
Program Revision

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Direct final rule.

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

SUMMARY: Arkansas has applied to the EPA for Final authorization of the 
changes to its hazardous waste program under the Resource Conservation 
and Recovery Act (RCRA). EPA has determined that these changes satisfy 
all requirements needed to qualify for Final authorization, and is 
authorizing the State's changes through this immediate final action. 
The EPA is publishing this rule to authorize the changes without a 
prior proposal because we believe this action is not controversial and 
do not expect comments that oppose it. Unless we receive written 
comments which oppose this authorization during the comment period, the 
decision to authorize Arkansas' changes to its hazardous waste program 
will take effect. If we receive comments that oppose this action, we 
will publish a document in the Federal Register withdrawing this rule 
before it takes effect, and a separate document in the proposed rules 
section of this Federal Register will serve as a proposal to authorize 
the changes.

DATES: This Final authorization will become effective on October 9, 
2012 unless the EPA receives adverse written comment by September 10, 
2012. If the EPA receives such comment, it will publish a timely 
withdrawal of this immediate final rule in the Federal Register and 
inform the public that this authorization will not take effect.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

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 program. As the Federal program changes, 
States must change their programs and ask the EPA to authorize the 
changes. Changes to State 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 266, 267, 268, 270, 273, and 
279.

B. What decisions have we made in this rule?

    We conclude that Arkansas' application to revise its authorized 
program meets all of the statutory and regulatory requirements 
established by RCRA. Therefore, we grant Arkansas Final authorization 
to operate its hazardous waste program with the changes described in 
the authorization application. Arkansas has responsibility for 
permitting treatment, storage, and disposal facilities within its 
borders (except in Indian Country) and for carrying out the aspects of 
the RCRA program described in its revised program application, subject 
to the limitations of the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984 
(HSWA). New Federal requirements and prohibitions imposed by Federal 
regulations that the 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 Arkansas including issuing permits, until the State is 
granted authorization to do so.

C. What is the effect of today's authorization decision?

    The effect of this decision is that a facility in Arkansas 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. Arkansas 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 after notice to and consultation 
with the State.
    This action does not impose additional requirements on the 
regulated community because the

[[Page 47780]]

regulations for which Arkansas is being authorized by today's action 
are already effective under State law, and are not changed by today's 
action.

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

    The EPA did not publish a proposal before today's 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 
today's Federal Register we are publishing a separate document that 
proposes to authorize the State program changes.

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

    If the EPA receives comments that oppose this authorization, we 
will withdraw this rule by publishing a document in the Federal 
Register before the rule 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. You may not have another 
opportunity to comment. 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 will 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 in this document. The 
Federal Register withdrawal document will specify which part of the 
authorization will become effective, and which part is being withdrawn.

F. For what has Arkansas previously been authorized?

    Arkansas initially received final authorization on January 25, 
1985, (50 FR 1513, January 11, 1985) to implement its Base Hazardous 
Waste Management program. Arkansas received authorization for revisions 
to its program on January 11, 1985 (50 FR 1513), effective January 25, 
1985; March 27, 1990 (55 FR 11192) effective May 29, 1990; September 
18, 1991 (56 FR 47153) effective November 18, 1991; October 5, 1992 (57 
FR 45721) effective December 4, 1992; October 7, 1994 (59 FR 51115) 
effective December 21, 1994, April 24, 2002 (67 FR 20038) effective 
June 24, 2002 and August 15, 2007 (72 FR 45663) effective October 15, 
2007. The authorized Arkansas RCRA program was incorporated by 
reference into the Code of Federal Regulations effective December 13, 
1993 (58 FR 52674) and also June 28, 2010 (75 FR 36538) effective 
August 27, 2010. On December 10, 2010, Arkansas submitted a final 
complete program revision application seeking authorization of its 
program revision in accordance with 40 CFR 271.21.
    On April 1994, Arkansas Department of Pollution Control and Ecology 
(ADPC&E), revised its Regulation Number 23 from one of ``incorporation 
by reference'' to the adoption and incorporation of a version of the 
full text of the Federal regulatory language. The specific authorities 
provided are contained in statutes and regulations lawfully adopted at 
the time the Independent Counsel signed the certification which are in 
effect now. The statutory authorities for the State are documented in 
the Arkansas RCRA Statutory Checklist, dated August 2006. Any 
differences between the State's provisions and the Federal provisions 
are noted on the individual revision Checklists. The official State 
regulations may be found in Arkansas Pollution Control and Ecology 
Commission Regulation Number 23 (Hazardous Waste Management), adopted 
on April 25, 2008 and April 23, 2010 effective May 26, 2008 and June 
13, 2010 respectfully. The provisions for which the State is seeking 
authorization are documented in this Federal Register document.
    The provisions for which the State is seeking authorization are 
documented in the Rule Revision Checklists 210, 217, 218 and 220, which 
are portions of RCRA Clusters XV through XIX. Reference to Arkansas 
Code Annotate (A.C.A) of 1987, Annotated, as amended August 2007. 
Reference to Arkansas Pollution Control and Ecology Commission (APC&EC) 
Regulations Number 23, (Hazardous Waste Management) (formerly titled 
the Arkansas Hazardous Waste Management Code), last amended on April 
25, 2008 and April 23, 2010, to adopt all final rules promulgated by 
EPA through June 30, 2009, and which became effective on May 26, 2008 
and June 13, 2010. Dates of enactment and adoption for other statutes 
or regulations are given when cited.

What changes are we approving with today's action?

    On December 10, 2010, the State of Arkansas submitted a final 
complete program application, seeking authorization of their changes in 
accordance with 40 CFR 271.21. We now make an immediate final decision, 
subject to receipt of written comments that oppose this action, that 
the State of Arkansas' hazardous waste program revision satisfies all 
of the requirements necessary to qualify for final authorization. The 
State of Arkansas revisions consist of regulations which specifically 
govern Federal Hazardous Waste revisions promulgated from June 14, 2005 
through December 1, 2008 and through June 30, 2009. The Checklists in 
these rules are 210, 217, 218 and 220, which are portions of RCRA 
Clusters XV through XIX are in a chart with this document.

H. Where are the revised State rules different from the Federal rules?

    The State of Arkansas regulations that are more stringent and 
broader in scope than the Federal regulations are listed in the State's 
Program description submitted with the application to be authorized 
dated December 28, 2010. On Checklist 210 Standardized Permit for RCRA 
Hazardous Waste Management Facilities, ADEQ has not incorporated by 
reference the public participation provisions at 40 CFR 124.1-2, 
124.3(b), 124.3(d), 124.3(e), 124.4, 124.5(b), 124.5(e), 124.5(g), 
124.6(b), 124.9, 124.10(a)(1)(i), 124.10(a)(1)(v), 124.12(e), 124.14-
16, 124.18, 124.19, and 124.21. However, the State has been previously 
authorized for equivalent provisions pursuant to APC&EC Regulation No. 
8 (Administrative Procedures and corresponding State provisions at 
Regulation No. 23 section 270.7). These references treat standardized 
permits in the same manner as any other permit issued by the 
Department.

I. Who handles permits after the authorization takes effect?

    The State of Arkansas will issue permits for all the provisions for 
which it is authorized and will administer the permits it issues. The 
EPA will continue to administer any RCRA hazardous waste permits or 
portions of permits which we issued prior to the effective date of this 
authorization. We will not issue any more new permits or new portions 
of permits for the provisions listed in the Table in this document 
after the effective date of this authorization. The EPA will continue 
to implement and issue permits for HSWA requirements for which ADEQ is 
not yet authorized.

[[Page 47782]]

J. How does today's action affect Indian Country (18 U.S.C. 1151) in 
Arkansas?

    The State of Arkansas Hazardous Program is not being authorized to 
operate in Indian Country.

K. What is codification and is the EPA codifying Arkansas' hazardous 
waste program as authorized in this rule?

    Codification is the process of placing the State's statutes and 
regulations that comprise the State's authorized hazardous waste 
program into the CFR. We do this by referencing the authorized State 
rules in 40 CFR part 272. We reserve the amendment of 40 CFR part 272, 
subpart E for this authorization of Arkansas' program changes until a 
later date. In this authorization application the EPA is not codifying 
the rules documented in this Federal Register notice.
I. Administrative Requirements
    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. The 
reference to Executive Order 13563 (73 FR 3821, January 21, 2011) is 
also exempt from review under Executive orders 12866 (56 FR 51735, 
October 4, 1993). This action authorizes State requirements for the 
purpose of RCRA 3006 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 action authorizes preexisting requirements under 
State law and does not impose any additional enforceable duty beyond 
that required by State law, 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). For the same 
reason, this action also does not significantly or uniquely affect the 
communities of Tribal governments, as specified by Executive Order 
13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000). 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 authorizes State requirements as part of the State 
RCRA hazardous waste program without altering the relationship or the 
distribution of power and responsibilities established by RCRA. 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.
    Under RCRA 3006(b), the EPA grants a State's application for 
authorization as long as the State meets the criteria required by RCRA. 
It would thus be inconsistent with applicable law for the EPA, when it 
reviews a State authorization application, to require the use of any 
particular voluntary consensus standard in place of another standard 
that otherwise satisfies the requirements of RCRA. 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 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). This 
action will be effective October 9, 2012.
