Wyoming: Proposed Authorization of State Hazardous Waste 
Management Program Revisions and Incorporation by Reference

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to 
grant authorization to the State of Wyoming for the changes to its 
hazardous waste program under the Solid Waste Disposal Act, as amended, 
commonly referred to as the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act 
(RCRA). EPA has determined that these changes satisfy all requirements 
needed to qualify for final authorization, and is authorizing the 
state's changes through a direct final action. In addition, the EPA is 
proposing to codify in the regulations entitled ``Approved State 
Hazardous Waste Management Programs,'' Wyoming'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 RCRA.

DATES: Send written comments by July 25, 2016.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID No. EPA-R08-
RCRA-2016-0174 by mail to Christina Cosentini, Resource Conservation 
and Recovery Program, EPA Region 8, 1595 Wynkoop Street, Mail Code 8P-
R, Denver, Colorado 80202. You may also submit comments electronically 
or through 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: Christina Cosentini at (303) 312-6231, 
[email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of 
this Federal Register, the EPA is authorizing changes to the Wyoming 
program, in addition to codifying and incorporating by reference the 
State's hazardous waste program as a direct final rule. The EPA did not 
make a proposal prior to the direct 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 authorization and 
incorporation by reference in the preamble to the direct final rule.
    Unless EPA receives written comments that oppose the authorization 
and incorporation by reference 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 the authorization, 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 
must do so at this time.

    Dated: May 11, 2016.

Regional Administrator, Region 8.
