Title:DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION PREEMPTION PROVISIONS
RCRA Online Number:14135
Date:06/11/1996
To:Barlow
From:Shapiro
Organization of Recipient:Northeast Waste Management Officials' Association
Description: The Hazardous Materials Transportation Act (HMTA), administered by DOT, contains state preemption provisions. DOT preempted a New York state regulation which prohibited mixing activities at transfer facilities. Other states acting to fill perceived gaps in the RCRA transporter regulations will face similar challenges under the strong preemption authority given to DOT by Congress in the HMTA. RCRA 3003(b) states that RCRA requirements addressing transporters must be consistent with HMTA (SEE ALSO: RPC# 3/1/96-04).
