Colorado: Final Authorization of State Hazardous Waste Management 
Program Revisions

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: The state of Colorado has applied to the EPA for final 
authorization of changes to its hazardous waste program under the 
Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The EPA proposes to 
grant final authorization to the hazardous waste program changes 
submitted by the state of Colorado. In the ``Rules and Regulations'' 
section of this Federal Register, the EPA is authorizing the changes in 
a final rule. The EPA did not propose the rule prior to issuing the 
final rule because the Agency believes this action is not controversial 
and does not expect comments that oppose it. We have explained the 
reasons for this authorization in the preamble to the final rule. 
Unless we receive written comments that oppose this authorization 
during the comment period, the final rule will become effective on the 
date it establishes, and the EPA will not take further action on this 
proposal. If the Agency receives comments that oppose this action, the 
EPA will publish a document in the Federal Register withdrawing this 
rule before it takes effect. The EPA will then address public comments 
in a later, final rule, based on this proposal. Any parties interested 
in commenting on this action must do so at this time. The EPA may not 
provide further opportunity for comment.

DATES: Comments must be received on or before December 21, 2012.

    Instructions: Direct your comments to Docket ID No. EPA-R08-RCRA-
2012-0396. The EPA's policy is that all comments received will be 
included in the public docket without change, including any personal 
information provided, unless the comment includes information claimed 
to be Confidential Business Information (CBI) or other information, the 
disclosure of which is restricted by statute. Do not submit information 
that you consider to be CBI or otherwise protected through http://www.regulations.gov, or email. The federal web site http://www.regulations.gov is an ``anonymous access'' system, which means the 
EPA will not know your identity or contact information unless you 
provide it in the body of your comment. If you email your comment 
directly to the EPA rather than going through http://www.regulations.gov, your email address will be automatically captured 
and included as part of the comment that is placed in the public docket 
and made available on the Internet. If you submit an electronic 
comment, the EPA recommends that you include your name and other 
contact information in the body of your comment and with any disk or 
CD-ROM you submit. If the EPA cannot read your comment due to technical 
difficulties, and cannot contact you for clarification, the EPA may not 
be able to consider your comment. Electronic files should avoid the use 
of special characters or any form of encryption, and be free of any 
defects or viruses. For additional information about the EPA's public 
docket, visit the EPA Docket Center homepage at http://www.epa.gov/epahome/dockets.htm.
    Docket: All documents in the docket are listed in the http://www.regulations.gov index. Although listed in the index, some 
information may not be publicly available, e.g., CBI or other 
information whose disclosure is restricted by statute. Certain other 
material, such as copyrighted material, will be publicly available only 
in hard copy. Publicly available docket materials are available either 
electronically through http://www.regulations.gov or in hard copy from 
8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday at the EPA Region 8 
Library at the address listed above, or the Colorado Department of 
Public Health and Environment, 4300 Cherry Creek Drive South, Denver,
