Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Proposed rule.


Virginia has applied to EPA for final approval of its financial assurance regulations for Municipal Solid Waste landfills under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). EPA proposes to grant final approval to Virginia. In the “Rules and Regulations” section of this Federal Register, EPA is approving the changes by an Immediate Final Rule. EPA did not make a proposal prior to the Immediate 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 approval in the preamble to the Immediate Final Rule. Unless we receive written comments which oppose this approval during the comment period, the Immediate Final Rule will become effective on the date it establishes, and we will not take further action on this proposal. If we receive comments that oppose this action, we will withdraw the Immediate Final Rule, and it will not take effect. We will then respond to public comments in a later Final Rule based on this proposal. You will not have another opportunity for comment. If you want to comment on this action, you must do so at this time.
