Title:AWARD OF PERMITS FOR NEW HAZARDOUS WASTE LAND DISPOSAL FACILITIES, PROCESS
RCRA Online Number:12607
Date:04/08/1986
To:Thomas
From:Thomas
Organization of Recipient:U.S. House of Representatives
Description: An overview of state authorization. Under RCRA, political subdivisions of states (e.g., counties and municipalities) are authorized to impose requirements that are more stringent than EPA’s. States and localities may impose more stringent requirements than the Federal EPA, but courts may not allow States to restrict the movement of hazardous wastes, and EPA will not authorize state programs that impose such a ban. When complying with both the EPA and state rules is impossible, Federal rules prevail.
