Massachusetts: Final Authorization of State Hazardous Waste 
Management Program Revisions

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: The EPA proposes to grant final authorization to certain 
hazardous waste program revisions submitted by The Commonwealth of 
Massachusetts relating to the Satellite Accumulation Rule. In the final 
rules section of this Federal Register, EPA is authorizing these State 
program revisions as an immediate final rule without prior proposal 
because EPA views this action as noncontroversial and anticipates no

adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the authorization is set 
forth in the immediate final rule. If no adverse written comments are 
received on this action, the immediate final rule will become effective 
and no further activity will occur in relation to this proposal. If EPA 
receives adverse written comments, EPA will withdraw the immediate 
final rule before its effective date by publishing a notice of 
withdrawal in the Federal Register. EPA will then respond to 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 should do so at this time.

DATES: Written comments on this proposed rule must be received on or 
before October 30, 1998.

Commonwealth of Massachusetts during normal business hours at the
