PUBLIC COMMENTS UNDER IC 13-14-9-4.5
IC 13-14-9-4.5 states that a board may not adopt a rule under IC 13-14-9 that is substantively different from the draft rule published under IC 13-14-9-4, until the board has conducted a third comment period that is at least 21 days long.
Because this proposed rule is not substantively different from the draft rule published on July 27, 2011, Indiana Register at DIN: 20110727-IR-329100253SNA, the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) is not requesting additional comment on this proposed rule.

IDEM requested public comment from July 27, 2011, through August 26, 2011, on IDEM's draft rule language.
No comments were received during the second comment period.

SUMMARY/RESPONSE TO COMMENTS RECEIVED AT THE FIRST PUBLIC HEARING
On February 21, 2012, the Solid Waste Management Board (board) conducted the first public hearing/board meeting concerning the development of new rules at 329 IAC 11.6
