SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In the “Rules and Regulations” section of this Federal Register (FR), the EPA is codifying and incorporating by reference the State's hazardous waste program as direct final rule. The EPA did not make a proposal prior to the direct final rule because we believe these actions are not controversial and do not expect comments that oppose them. We have explained the reasons for this codification and incorporation by reference in the preamble to the direct final rule. Therefore, the purpose of this FR document is to codify Oklahoma's base hazardous waste management program and its program revisions through RCRA Cluster XXI (see 78 FR 32161) May 29, 2013. The EPA provided notices and opportunity for comments on the Agency's decisions to authorize the Oklahoma program, and the EPA is not now reopening the decisions, nor requesting comments, on the Oklahoma authorizations as published in the FR notices specified in Section B of the direct final rule FR document.

This document incorporates by reference Oklahoma's hazardous waste statutes and regulations and clarifies which of these provisions are included in the authorized and federally enforceable program. By codifying Oklahoma's authorized program and by amending the Code of Federal Regulations, the public will be more easily able to discern the status of federally approved requirements of the Oklahoma hazardous waste management program.
