SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In the Rules section of this Federal Register, the EPA is approving modifications to Oregon's Municipal Solid Waste Landfill permit program to allow for Research, Development, and Demonstration permits through a direct final rule without prior proposal, because the EPA views this as a noncontroversial action and anticipates no adverse comments to this action. Unless we receive written adverse comments which oppose this approval during the comment period, the direct final rule will become effective on the date it establishes, and we will not take further action on this proposal. If the EPA receives written adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule. Start Printed Page 20074The EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting on this action should do so at this time. For additional information, see the direct final rule which is located in the Rules section of this Federal Register.
