Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Proposed rule.


The EPA proposes to grant Final authorization to the hazardous waste program changes submitted by Montana. In the “Rules” section of this Federal Register, we are authorizing the State's program changes as an immediate final rule without a prior proposed rule because we believe this action is not controversial. Unless we get written comments opposing this authorization during the comment period, the immediate final rule will become effective and the Agency will not take further action on this proposal. If we receive comments that oppose this action, we will publish a document in the Federal Register withdrawing this rule before it takes effect. EPA will address public comments in a later final rule based on this proposal. EPA may not provide further opportunity for comment. Any parties interested in commenting on this action must do so at this time.


We must receive your comments by October 31, 2005.

Instructions: Do not submit information that you consider to be Confidential Business Information (CBI) or information that should be otherwise protected from disclosure through, or e-mail.

If you submit an electronic comment, EPA recommends that you include your name and other contact information in the body of your comment and with any disk or CD-ROM you submit. If EPA cannot read your comment due to technical difficulties and cannot contact you for clarification, EPA may not be able to consider your comment.
