Oklahoma: Incorporation by Reference of State Hazardous Waste 
Management Program

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: The EPA proposes to codify in the regulations entitled 
``Approved State Hazardous Waste Management Programs'', Oklahoma's 
authorized hazardous waste program. The EPA will incorporate by 
reference into the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) those provisions 
of the State regulations that are authorized and that the EPA will 
enforce under the Solid Waste Disposal Act, commonly referred to as the 
Resource Conversation and Recovery Act (RCRA). In the ``Rules and 
Regulations'' section of this Federal Register, the EPA is codifying

incorporating by reference the State's hazardous waste program as an 
immediate final rule. The EPA did not make a proposal prior to the 
immediate 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 immediate final rule. Unless we get 
written comments which oppose this incorporation by reference 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 get comments that oppose these actions, 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 may not have another opportunity for comment. If 
you want to comment on this action, you must do so at this time.

DATES: Send written comments by July 28, 2010.

ADDRESSES: Send written comments to Alima Patterson, Region 6 Regional 
Authorization Coordinator, OR Julia Banks, Codification Coordinator,
