Tennessee: Final Authorization of State Hazardous Waste 
Management Program Revisions

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: Tennessee has applied to EPA for final authorization of the 
changes to its hazardous waste program under the Resource Conservation 
and Recovery Act (RCRA). EPA proposes to grant final authorization to 
Tennessee. In the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of this Federal 
Register, EPA is authorizing the changes by an immediate final rule. 
EPA did not issue a proposed rule prior to the immediate final rule 
because we believe this action is not controversial and do not expect 
comments that oppose it. EPA has explained the reasons for this 
authorization in the preamble to the immediate final rule. Unless EPA 
receives written comments which oppose this authorization during the 
comment period, the immediate final rule will become effective on the 
date it establishes, and we will not take further action on this 
proposal. If EPA receives comments that oppose this action, we will 
withdraw the immediate final rule and it will not take effect. EPA 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.

DATES: Comments must be received on or before November 5, 2012.
