Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Immediate final rule.

SUMMARY:

Under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976, as amended (RCRA), the EPA may grant States Final Authorization to operate their hazardous waste management programs in lieu of the Federal program. EPA uses part 272 of Title 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) to provide notice of the authorization status of State programs and to incorporate by reference those provisions of the State statutes and regulations that are part of the authorized State program. The purpose of this action is to codify Indiana's authorized hazardous waste program in 40 CFR part 272. This rule incorporates by reference provisions of Indiana's hazardous waste statutes and regulations and clarifies which of these provisions are authorized and federally enforceable. Unless adverse written comments are received during the comment period, the EPA's decision to incorporate by reference Indiana's authorized hazardous waste program will take effect as provided.

DATES:

This document will become effective December 24, 2001 without further notice, if EPA receives no adverse comment on this rule by November 23, 2001. Should the Agency receive such comments, it will withdraw this rule before its effective date by publishing a withdrawal in the Federal Register. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of the Indiana statutes and regulations contained in this rule as of December 24, 2001.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

Section 3006 of RCRA, 42 U.S.C. 6926 et seq., allows the EPA to authorize State hazardous waste programs to operate in the State in lieu of the Federal hazardous waste program. EPA Start Printed Page 53725provides notice of its authorization of State programs in 40 CFR part 272 and incorporates by reference therein the State statutes and regulations that are a part of the authorized State program under RCRA. This effort provides clearer notice to the public of the scope of the authorized programs. The incorporation by reference of State authorized programs in the CFR should substantially enhance the public's ability to discern the current status of the authorized State program and clarify the extent of Federal enforcement authority.

Effective August 23, 1989 (54 FR 34988), EPA incorporated by reference Indiana's then authorized hazardous waste program. The purpose of today's Federal Register document is to incorporate by reference EPA's authorization of Indiana's subsequent nine revisions to that program. This rule incorporates by reference provisions of State hazardous waste statutes and regulations and clarifies which of these provisions are included in the authorized and Federally enforceable program.

B. Indiana Authorized Hazardous Waste Program

Indiana received Final Authorization for its RCRA hazardous waste base program on January 31, 1986, effective January 31, 1986 (51 FR 3955). EPA incorporated by reference the then authorized hazardous waste program in subpart P of 40 CFR part 272. The State statutes and regulations are incorporated by reference at 40 CFR 272.751, and the Memorandum of Agreement, the Attorney General's Statement and the Program Description are referenced at Sec. 272.751(b)(5),(b)(6), and (b)(7), respectively.

Since the initial codification, Indiana has received authorization for revisions to its program on July 13, 1989, effective September 11, 1989 (54 FR 29557); July 23, 1991, effective September 23, 1991 (56 FR 33717); July 24, 1991, effective September 23, 1991 (56 FR 33866) (this was a renumbering of Indiana's regulations from 320 IAC 4.1 to 329 IAC 3); July 29, 1991, effective September 27, 1991 (56 FR 35831); July 30, 1991, effective September 30, 1991 (56 FR 36010); August 20, 1996, effective October 21, 1996 (61 FR 43008) (this was a renumbering of Indiana's regulations from 329 IAC 3 to 329 IAC 3.1); August 20 1996, effective October 21, 1996 (61 FR 43018); September 1, 1999, effective November 30, 1999 (64 FR 47692); and on January 4, 2001, effective January 4, 2001 (66 FR 733). In this document EPA is revising the incorporation by reference of Indiana's authorized hazardous waste program in subpart P of 40 CFR part 272, to include these revisions.

The Agency retains the authority under sections 3007, 3008, 3013 and 7003 of RCRA to undertake enforcement actions in authorized States. With respect to such an enforcement action, the Agency will rely on Federal sanctions, Federal inspection authorities, and the Federal Administrative Procedure Act rather than the authorized State analogues to these requirements. Therefore, the Agency does not intend to incorporate by reference for purposes of enforcement such particular, authorized Indiana enforcement authorities. Section 272.751(b)(2) of 40 CFR lists those enforcement authorities that are part of the authorized program but are not incorporated by reference.

The public also needs to be aware that some provisions of a State's hazardous waste management program are not part of the Federally authorized State program. These nonauthorized provisions include:

(1) Provisions that are not part of the RCRA subtitle C program because they are “broader in scope” than RCRA subtitle C (see 40 CFR 271.1(i));

(2) Federal provisions which the State incorporated into its regulations when the State adopted Federal regulations by reference, but for which the State is not authorized;

At this time, Indiana has adopted but is not authorized for the Corrective Action for Injection Wells portion of HSWA Codification Rule 2 published in the FR on December 1, 1987 (52 FR 45788); and the Federal rules published in the FR on February 21, 1991 (56 FR 7134); July 17, 1991 (56 FR 32688); August 27, 1991 (56 FR 42504); September 5, 1991 (56 FR 43754); February 18, 1992 (57 FR 5859); August 25, 1992 (57 FR 38558); September 30, 1992 (57 FR 44999); July 20, 1993 (58 FR 38816); November 9, 1993 (58 FR 59598); May 12, 1997 (61 FR 25998); June 13, 1997 (62 FR 32452); June 17, 1997 (62 FR 32974); July 14, 1997 (62 FR 37694) August 28, 1997 (62 FR 45568); December 8, 1997 (62 FR 64636); April 15, 1998 (63 FR 18504); May 6, 1998 (63 FR 24963); May 26, 1998 (63 FR 28556); June 8, 1998 (63 FR 31266); June 19, 1998 (63 FR 33782); July 14, 1998 (63 FR 37780); August 6, 1998 (63 FR 42110); August 31, 1998 (63 FR 46332); September 4, 1998 (63 FR 47409); September 9, 1998 (63 FR 48124); September 24, 1998 (63 FR 51254); October 9, 1998 (63 FR 54356); October 22, 1998 (63 FR 56710); November 30, 1998 (63 FR 65874); December 24, 1998 (63 FR 71225); January 21, 1999 (64 FR 3381) and February 11, 1999 (64 FR 6806). Therefore these Federal amendments included in Indiana's adoption by reference at 329 IAC 3.1 are not part of the State's authorized program and are not part of the incorporation by reference addressed by today's FR document.

Since EPA cannot enforce a State's requirements which have not been reviewed and authorized in accordance with RCRA section 3006 and 40 CFR part 271, it is important to clarify any limitations on the scope of a State's authorized hazardous waste program. Thus, in those instances where a State's method of adopting Federal law by reference has the effect of including unauthorized requirements, or where a State has made unauthorized amendments to previously authorized sections of State code, EPA will provide this clarification by: (1) Incorporating by reference the relevant State legal authorities according to the requirements of the Office of Federal Register; and (2) subsequently identifying in 40 CFR 272.751(b)(4), any requirements which while adopted and incorporated by reference, are not authorized by EPA, and therefore are not Federally enforceable. Thus, notwithstanding the language in the Indiana hazardous waste regulations incorporated by reference at 40 CFR 272.751(b)(1), EPA will only enforce the State provisions that are actually authorized by EPA. For the convenience of the regulated community, the actual State regulatory text authorized by EPA for the citations listed at 40 CFR 272.751(b)(1) is compiled as a separate document, Addendum to the EPA-Approved Indiana Regulatory and Statutory Requirements Applicable to the Hazardous Waste Management Program, March 2001. This document is available from U.S. EPA Region 5, DM-7J, 77 West Jackson Boulevard, Chicago, Illinois 60604, attention Gary Westefer. With respect to HSWA requirements for which the State has not yet been authorized, EPA will continue to enforce the Federal HSWA standards until the State receives specific HSWA authorization from EPA.

C. HSWA Provisions

The Agency is not amending 40 CFR part 272 to include HSWA requirements and prohibitions that are implemented by EPA. Section 3006(g) of RCRA provides that any HSWA requirement or prohibition (including implementing regulations) take effect in authorized and not authorized States at the same time. A HSWA requirement or Start Printed Page 53726prohibition supersedes any less stringent or inconsistent State provision which may have been previously authorized by EPA (50 FR 28702, July 15, 1985). EPA has the authority to implement HSWA requirements in all States, including authorized States, until the States become authorized for such requirement or prohibition. Authorized States are required to revise their programs to adopt the HSWA requirements and prohibitions, and then to seek authorization for those revisions pursuant to 40 CFR part 271.

Instead of amending the 40 CFR part 272 every time a new HSWA provision takes effect under the authority of RCRA section 3006(g), EPA will wait until the State receives authorization for its analog to the new HSWA provision before amending the State's 40 CFR part 272 incorporation by reference. Until then, persons wanting to know whether a HSWA requirement or prohibition is in effect should refer to 40 CFR 271.1(j), as amended, which lists each such provision.

Some existing State requirements may be similar to the HSWA requirements implemented by EPA. However, until EPA authorizes those State requirements, EPA can only enforce the HSWA requirements and not the State analogs. EPA will not codify those State requirements until the State receives authorization for those requirements.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

Title II of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA), Public Law 104-4, establishes requirements for Federal agencies to assess the effects of their regulatory actions on State, local, and tribal governments and the private sector. Under section 202 of the UMRA, EPA generally must prepare a written statement, including a cost-benefit analysis, for proposed and final rules with “Federal mandates” that may result in expenditures to State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or to the private sector, of $100 million or more in any one year. Before promulgating an EPA rule for which a written statement is needed, section 205 of the UMRA generally requires EPA to identify and consider a reasonable number of regulatory alternatives and adopt the least costly, most cost-effective or least burdensome alternative that achieves the objectives of the rule. The provisions of section 205 do not apply when they are inconsistent with applicable law. Moreover, section 205 allows EPA to adopt an alternative other than the least costly, most cost-effective or least burdensome alternative if the Administrator publishes with the final rule an explanation why that alternative was not adopted. Before EPA establishes any regulatory requirements that may significantly or uniquely affect small governments, including tribal governments, it must have developed under section 203 of the UMRA a small government agency plan. The plan must provide for notifying potentially affected small governments, enabling officials of affected small governments to have meaningful and timely input in the development of EPA regulatory proposals with significant Federal intergovernmental mandates, and informing, educating, and advising small governments on compliance with the regulatory requirements.

The section 202 and 205 requirements do not apply to today's action because it is not a “Federal mandate” and because it does not impose annual costs of $100 million or more for State, local and/or tribal governments in the aggregate, or the private sector. Today's action contains no Federal mandates for State, local or tribal governments or the private sector because it does not impose new or additional enforceable duties on any State, local or tribal governments or the private sector. This rule merely incorporates by reference existing requirements with which regulated entities must already comply under State and Federal law. For this same reason, this action will not result in annual expenditures of $100 million or more for State, local, and/or tribal governments in the aggregate, or the private sector because it incorporates by reference an existing State program that EPA previously authorized. Cost to the State, local and/or tribal governments, and to regulated entities already exist under the authorized program. Further, as it applies to the State, this action does not impose a Federal intergovernmental mandate because UMRA does not include duties arising from participation in a voluntary Federal program.

The requirements of section 203 of UMRA also do not apply to today's action because it contains no regulatory requirements that might significantly or uniquely affect small governments. Although small governments may be hazardous waste generators, transporters, or own and/or operate treatment, storage, and disposal facilities, this codification incorporates into the CFR Indiana's requirements which EPA already authorized under 40 CFR part 271. Small governments are not subject to any additional significant or unique requirements by virtue of this action.

Certification Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA), as Amended by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA), 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.

Pursuant to the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq., as amended by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996), whenever an agency is required to publish a notice of rulemaking for any proposed or final rule, it must prepare and make available for public comment a regulatory flexibility analysis that describes the effect of the rule on small entities (i.e., small businesses, small organizations, and small governmental jurisdictions). This analysis is unnecessary, however, if the agency's administrator certifies that the rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.

The RFA generally requires an agency to prepare a regulatory flexibility analysis of any rule subject to notice and comment rulemaking requirements under the Administrative Procedure Act or any other statute unless the agency certifies that the rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Small entities include small businesses, small organizations, and small governmental jurisdictions.

For purposes of assessing the impacts of today's action on small entities, small entity is defined as: (1) A small business as specified in the Small Business Administration regulations; (2) a small governmental jurisdiction that is a government of a city, county, town, school district or special district with a population of less than 50,000; and (3) a small organization that is any not-for-profit enterprise which is independently owned and operated and is not dominant in its field.

After considering the economic impacts of this codification on small entities, I certify pursuant to the provision at 5 U.S.C. 605(b), that this codification will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This action does not impose any new requirements on small entities because small entities that are hazardous waste generators, transporters, or that own and/or operate TSDFs are already subject to the regulatory requirements under the State laws authorized by EPA under 40 CFR part 271. This codification incorporates Indiana's requirements which have been authorized by EPA under 40 CFR part 271 into the CFR. The EPA's codification does not impose any additional burdens on these small Start Printed Page 53727entities. This rule, therefore, does not require a regulatory flexibility analysis.

Submission to Congress and the Comptroller General

The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as added by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. The EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of the rule in today's Federal Register. This rule is not a “major rule” as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).

Compliance With Executive Order 12866

The Office of Management and Budget has exempted this rule from the requirements of Executive Order 12866.

Compliance With Executive Order 12898: Environmental Justice

Under Executive Order 12898, “Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations' as well as through EPA's April 1995, “Environmental Justice Strategy, OSWER Environmental Justice Task Force Action Agenda Report,” and National Environmental Justice Advisory Council, EPA has undertaken to incorporate environmental justice into its policies and programs. EPA is committed to addressing environmental justice concerns, and is assuming a leadership role in environmental justice initiatives to enhance environmental quality for all residents of the United States. The Agency's goals are to ensure that no segment of the population, regardless of race, color, national origin, or income, bears disproportionately high and adverse human health and environmental effects as a result of EPA's policies, programs, and activities. Today's rule is not expected to negatively impact any community, and therefore is not expected to cause any disproportionately high and adverse impacts to minority or low-income communities versus non-minority or affluent communities.

Compliance With Executive Order 13045

Executive Order 13045, “Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks,” applies to any rule that: (1) The Office of Management and Budget determines is “economically significant” as defined under Executive Order 12866, and (2) concerns an environmental health or safety risk that EPA has reason to believe may have a disproportionate effect on children. If the regulatory action meets both criteria, the Agency must evaluate the environmental health or safety effects of the planned rule on children and explain why the planned regulation is preferable to other potentially effective and reasonably feasible alternatives considered by the Agency.

This rule is not subject to Executive Order 13045 because it is not an economically significant rule as defined by Executive Order 12866, and because it does not involve decisions based on environmental health or safety risks.

Compliance With Executive Order 13132 (Federalism)

Executive Order 13132, entitled “Federalism” (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999), requires EPA to develop an accountable process to ensure “meaningful and timely input by State and local officials in the development of regulatory policies that have federalism implications.” “Policies that have federalism implications” is defined in the Executive Order to include regulations that have “substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government.”

Under section 6 of Executive Order 13132, EPA may not issue a regulation that has federalism implications, that imposes substantial direct compliance costs, and that is not required by statute, unless the Federal government provides the funds necessary to pay the direct compliance costs incurred by State and local governments, or EPA consults with State and local officials early in the process of developing the proposed regulation. EPA also may not issue a regulation that has federalism implications and that preempts State law unless the Agency consults with State and local officials early in the process of developing the proposed regulation.

This authorization does not have federalism implications. It will not have a substantial direct effect on States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government, as specified in Executive Order 13132, because this rule affects only one State. This action simply approves Indiana's proposal to be authorized for updated requirements of the hazardous waste program that the State has voluntarily chosen to operate. Further, as a result of this action, newly authorized provisions of the State's program now apply in Indiana in lieu of the equivalent Federal program provisions implemented by EPA under HSWA. Affected parties are subject only to those authorized State program provisions, as opposed to being subject to both Federal and State regulatory requirements. Thus, the requirements of section 6 of the Executive Order do not apply.

Compliance With Executive Order 13175

Executive Order 13175, entitled “Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments” (65 FR 67249, November 6, 2000), requires EPA to develop an accountable process to ensure “meaningful and timely input by tribal officials in the development of regulatory policies that have tribal implications.” “Policies that have tribal implications” is defined in the Executive Order to include regulations that have “substantial direct effects on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal government and the Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal government and Indian tribes.”

This final rule does not have tribal implications. It will not have substantial direct effects on tribal governments, on the relationship between the Federal government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal government and Indian tribes, as specified in Executive Order 13175.

This rule is not subject to Executive Order 13175 because it does not significantly or uniquely affect the communities of Indian tribal governments. Indiana is not authorized to implement the RCRA hazardous waste program in Indian country. This action has no effect on the hazardous waste program that EPA may implement in the Indian country within the State.

Paperwork Reduction Act

Under the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., Federal agencies must consider the paperwork burden imposed by any information request contained in a proposed rule or a final rule. This rule will not impose any information requirements upon the regulated community. Start Printed Page 53728

National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act

Section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (“NTTAA”), Public Law No. 104-113, Section 12(d) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs EPA to use voluntary consensus standards in its regulatory activities unless to do so would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., materials specifications, test methods, sampling procedures, and business practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. The NTTAA directs EPA to provide Congress, through OMB, explanations when the Agency decides not to use available and applicable voluntary consensus standards.

This action does not involve technical standards. Therefore, EPA did not consider the use of any voluntary consensus standards.
