SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In the “Rules and Regulations” section of thisFederal Register, the EPA is codifying and incorporating by reference the State's hazardous waste program as a direct final rule. The EPA believes this action is not controversial and does not expect comments to oppose the codification. We have explained the reasons for this codification and incorporation by reference in the preamble to the direct final rule. Unless we get written comments which oppose this incorporation by reference during the comment period, the direct final rule will become effective on the effective date described in the direct final rule and we will not take further action on this proposal. If the EPA receives comments that oppose the codification, the 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 proposal. You may not have another opportunity for comment. 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 thisFederal Register.
