New York: Final Authorization of State Hazardous Waste Management 
Program Revisions

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: New York State has applied to EPA for final authorization of 
changes to its hazardous waste program under the Solid Waste Disposal 
Act, as amended, commonly referred to as the Resource Conservation and 
Recovery Act (RCRA). EPA proposes to grant final authorization to New 
York for these changes, with limited exceptions. EPA has determined 
that these changes satisfy all requirements needed to qualify for final 
authorization, and is authorizing the state's changes through a direct 
final action.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of 
this Federal Register notice, EPA is authorizing the changes by a 
direct final rule. EPA did not make a proposal prior to the direct 
final rule because we believe this action is not controversial and do 
not expect comments that oppose it. We have explained the reasons for 
this authorization in the preamble to the direct final rule. Unless we 
receive adverse written comments which oppose this authorization 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 receive comments that oppose this action, we will 
either withdraw the direct final rule or the portion of the direct 
final rule that is the subject of the comments. Only the remaining 
portion of the rule will take effect. We will then respond to those 
public comments opposing this authorization in a later final 
authorization notice based on this proposal. This final authorization 
notice may or may not include changes based on comments received during 
the public notice comment period. You may not have another opportunity 
for comment. If you want to comment on this action, you should do so at 
this time.

    Dated: December 19, 2012.

Regional Administrator, Region 2.
