[EPA-R03-RCRA-2012-0294; FRL-9900-37-Region3]


Virginia: Final Authorization of State Hazardous Waste Management 
Program Revisions

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: Virginia has applied to EPA for final authorization of 
revisions to its hazardous waste program under the Resource 
Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). EPA proposes to grant final 
authorization to Virginia. In the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of 
this Federal Register, EPA is authorizing the revisions by an immediate 
final rule. EPA did not make a proposal prior to the immediate 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 immediate final rule. Unless we 
receive written comments that 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.
    However, if we receive comments that oppose this action, or 
portions thereof, we will withdraw the relevant portions of the 
immediate final rule, and they 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.
