[EPA-R01-RCRA-2013-0554; FRL-9904-46-Region 1]


Vermont: Proposed Authorization of State Hazardous Waste 
Management Program Revisions

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: EPA proposes to grant final authorization to the State of 
Vermont for changes to its hazardous waste program. In the ``Rules and 
Regulations'' section of this Federal Register we are authorizing the 
changes to the Vermont hazardous waste program under the Resource 
Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) as a direct final rule without 
prior proposed rule. EPA has determined that these changes satisfy all 
requirements needed to qualify for final authorization. If we receive 
no adverse comment, we will not take further action on this proposed 
rule.

DATES: Written comments must be received by January 30, 2014.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID No. EPA-R01-
RCRA-2013-0554, by mail to Sharon Leitch, RCRA Waste Management and UST 
Section, Office of Site Remediation and Restoration (OSRR07-1), US EPA 
Region 1, 5 Post Office Square, Suite 100, Boston, MA 02109-3912.

Comments may also be submitted electronically or thorough hand 
delivery/courier by following the detailed instructions in the 
ADDRESSES section of the direct final rule located in the rules section 
of this Federal Register.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sharon Leitch, RCRA Waste Management 
and UST Section, Office of Site Remediation and Restoration (OSRR07-1), 
US EPA Region 1, 5 Post Office Square, Suite 100, Boston, MA 02109-
3912; telephone number: (617) 918-1647; fax number: (617) 918-0647; 
email address: leitch.sharon@epa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of 
this Federal Register, EPA is authorizing these 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 
adverse comments that oppose it. We have explained the reasons for this 
authorization in the preamble to the direct final rule. Unless we 
receive written adverse 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 get comments that oppose this action, we will withdraw 
the direct final rule and it will not take immediate 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 should do so at this time.

    Dated: November 5, 2013.

Regional Administrator, EPA Region 1.
