Alabama: Final Authorization of State Hazardous Waste Management 
Program Revisions

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: Alabama has applied to the Environmental Protection Agency 
(EPA) for final authorization of changes to its hazardous waste program 
under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). These changes 
correspond to certain Federal rules promulgated between July 1, 2006 
through June 30, 2008, and July 1, 2011 through June, 30, 2014 (also 
known as RCRA Clusters XVII through XVIII, and XXII through XXIII). 
With this proposed rule, EPA is proposing to grant final authorization 
to Alabama for these changes.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Along with this proposed rule, EPA is 
publishing a direct final rule in the ``Rules and Regulations'' section 
of today's Federal Register pursuant to which EPA is authorizing these 
changes. EPA did not issue a proposed rule before today because EPA 
believes this action is not controversial and does not expect comments 
that oppose it. EPA has explained the reasons for this authorization in 
the direct final rule. Unless EPA receives written comments that oppose 
this authorization during the comment period, the direct final rule in 
today's Federal Register will become effective on the date it 
establishes, and EPA will not take further action on this proposal. If 
EPA receives comments that oppose this action, EPA will withdraw the 
direct final rule and it will not take effect. EPA will then respond to 
public comments in a later final rule based on this proposed rule. You 
may not have another opportunity to comment on these State program 
changes. If you want to comment on this action, you must do so at this 
time. For additional information, please see the direct final rule 
published in the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of today's Federal 
Register.

    Dated: March 9, 2017.
V. Anne Heard,
Acting Regional Administrator, Region 4.
