Arkansas: Final Authorization of State Hazardous Waste Management 
Program Revisions

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: The State of Arkansas has applied to EPA for Final 
authorization of the changes to its hazardous waste program under the 
Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). EPA proposes to grant 
Final authorization to the State of Arkansas. In the ``Rules and 
Regulations'' section of this Federal Register, EPA is authorizing the 
changes by a direct 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 get written comments which 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. If we receive comments that oppose 
this action, 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 

DATES: Send your written comments by September 10, 2012.
