[EPA-R03-RCRA-2013-0571; FRL-9903-07-Region 3]


West Virginia: Final Authorization of State Hazardous Waste 
Management Program Revisions

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: West 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 West 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.

DATES: Send your written comments by December 26, 2013.
