Georgia: Final Authorization of State Hazardous Waste Management 
Program Revisions

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: Georgia has applied to EPA for final authorization of changes 
to its hazardous waste program under the Resource Conservation and 
Recovery Act (RCRA). With this proposed rule, EPA is proposing to grant 
final authorization to Georgia for these changes. Along with this 
proposed rule, EPA is publishing an immediate final rule in the ``Rules 
and Regulations'' section of today's Federal Register pursuant to which 
EPA is authorizing these changes. EPA did not issue a proposed rule 
before today because EPA believes this action is not controversial and 
does not expect comments that oppose it. EPA has explained the reasons 
for this authorization in the immediate final rule. Unless EPA receives 
written comments that oppose this authorization during the comment 
period, the immediate final rule in today's Federal Register will 
become effective on the date it establishes, and EPA will not take 
further action on this proposal. If EPA receives comments that oppose 
this action, EPA 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 proposed rule. You may not have another opportunity 
to comment on these State program changes. If you want to comment on 
this action, you must do so at this time.

DATES: Send your written comments by June 3, 2013.

encryption, and be free of any defects or viruses. (For additional
