Hazardous Waste Management Program: Final Authorization of State 
Hazardous Waste Management Program Revisions for State of Louisiana

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule and request for comment.


SUMMARY: The EPA (also, ``the Agency'' in this preamble) is proposing 
to grant final authorization to the State of Louisiana Department of 
Environmental Quality for its hazardous waste program revisions, 
specifically, revisions needed to meet the Resource Conservation and 
Recovery Act Cluster IX, which contains Federal rules promulgated 
between July 1, 1998 to June 30, 1999. In the ``Rules and Regulations'' 
section of this Federal

[[Page 86]]

Register (FR), EPA is authorizing the State's program revisions as an 
immediate final rule without prior proposal because the EPA views this 
action as noncontroversial and anticipates no adverse comments. The 
Agency has explained the reasons for this authorization in the preamble 
to the immediate final rule. If EPA does not receive adverse written 
comments, the immediate final rule will become effective and the Agency 
will not take further action on this proposal. If EPA receives no 
adverse comments, it will not take further action on this proposal. If 
EPA receives adverse written comments, a second Federal Register 
document will be published before the time the immediate final rule 
takes effect. The second document may withdraw the immediate final rule 
or identify the issues raised, respond to the comments and affirm that 
the immediate final rule will take effect as scheduled. Any parties 
interested in commenting on this action should do so at this time.

DATES: Written comments must be received on or before February 1, 2001.

ADDRESSES: Mail written comments to Alima Patterson, Region 6, Regional 
Authorization Coordinator, Grants and Authorization Section (6PD-G), 
Multimedia Planning and Permitting Division, at the address shown
