ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 271

[EPA-R07-RCRA-2016-0637; FRL-9955-24-Region 7]


State of Nebraska; Authorization of State Hazardous Waste 
Management Program

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: Nebraska has applied to the Environmental Protection Agency 
(EPA) for final authorization of revisions to its hazardous waste 
program under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). EPA is 
proposing to grant final authorization to Nebraska.

DATES: Comments on this proposed action must be received in writing by 
December 19, 2016.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID No. EPA-R07-
RCRA-2016-0637, to http://www.regulations.gov. Follow the online 
instructions for submitting comments. Once submitted, comments cannot 
be edited or removed from Regulations.gov. The EPA may publish any 
comment received to its public docket. Do not submit electronically any 
information you consider to be Confidential Business Information (CBI) 
or other information whose disclosure is restricted by statute. 
Multimedia submissions (audio, video, etc.) must be accompanied by a 
written comment. The written comment is considered the official comment 
and should include discussion of all points you wish to make. The EPA 
will generally not consider comments or comment contents located 
outside of the primary submission (i.e. on the web, cloud, or other 
file sharing system). For additional submission methods, the full EPA 
public comment policy, information about CBI or multimedia submissions, 
and general guidance on making effective comments, please visit http://www2.epa.gov/dockets/commenting-epa-dockets.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lisa Haugen, EPA Region 7, Enforcement 
Coordination Office, 11201 Renner Boulevard, Lenexa, Kansas 66219, 
phone number: (913) 551-7877, or email address: [email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the final rules section of the Federal 
Register, EPA is authorizing the revisions 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 comments 
that oppose it. We have explained the reasons for this authorization in 
the preamble of the direct final rule. If no relevant adverse comments 
are received in response to this action, no further activity is 
contemplated in relation to this action. If EPA receives relevant 
adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all 
public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule 
based on this proposed action. EPA will not institute a second comment 
period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting on this 
action should do so at this time. Please note that if EPA receives 
adverse comment on part of this rule and if that part can be severed 
from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those parts of 
the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment. For additional 
information, see the direct final rule which is located in the rules 
section of this Federal Register.
