[EPA-R06-RCRA-2011-0484; FRL-9652-8]


Oklahoma: Incorporation by Reference of State Hazardous Waste 
Management Program

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: The EPA proposes to codify in the regulations entitled 
``Approved State Hazardous Waste Management Programs'', Oklahoma's 
authorized hazardous waste program. The EPA will incorporate by 
reference into the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) those provisions 
of the State regulations that are authorized and that the EPA will 
enforce under the Solid Waste Disposal Act, commonly referred to as the 
Resource Conversation and Recovery Act (RCRA).

DATES: Send written comments by June 18, 2012.

ADDRESSES: Send written comments to Alima Patterson, Region 6 Regional 
Authorization Coordinator, or Julia Banks Codification Coordinator, 
State/Tribal Oversight Section (6PD-O), Multimedia Planning and 
Permitting Division, EPA Region 6, 1445 Ross Avenue, Dallas, Texas 
75202-2733, Phone number: (214) 665-8533 or (214) 665-8178. You may 
also submit comments electronically or through hand delivery/courier; 
please follow the detailed instructions in the ADDRESSES section of the 
immediate final rule which is located in the Rules section of this 
Federal Register.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Alima Patterson, (214) 665-8533.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of 
this Federal Register, the EPA is codifying and incorporating by 
reference the State's hazardous waste program as an immediate final 
rule. The EPA did not make a proposal prior to the immediate final rule 
because we believe these actions are not controversial and do not 
expect comments that oppose them. We have explained the reasons for 
this codification and incorporation by reference in the preamble to the 
immediate final rule. Unless we get written comments which oppose this 
incorporation by reference 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. If we get comments that 
oppose these actions, we will withdraw the immediate final rule and it 
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.

    Dated: March 16, 2012.
Al Armendariz,
Regional Administrator, Region 6.
