The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 30 CFR Part 942 after this date.
We are approving an amendment to the Tennessee Abandoned Mine Land (AML) Reclamation Plan (AML Plan). A 2006 amendment to the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 (SMCRA or the Act), authorized reinstitution of the Tennessee AML program as a minimum funded program state following the suspension of the AML Plan and program after Tennessee's regulatory program was withdrawn in 1984. Pursuant to the authority granted under the Tennessee Code Annotated (TCA), Section 59-8-324(m), Tennessee's Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC), has revised the AML Plan to reflect statutory, regulatory, policy, procedural, and organizational changes that have occurred since 1984.
We are announcing receipt of a proposed amendment to the Tennessee Abandoned Mine Land (AML) Reclamation Plan under the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 (SMCRA or the Act). Tennessee has submitted the amendment to reflect statutory, regulatory, policy, procedural, and organizational changes that have occurred since 1984, when the State's AML program was affected by the withdrawal of the State's regulatory program. This document gives the times and locations that the Tennessee AML reclamation plan is available for your inspection, the comment period during which you may submit written comments, and the procedures that we will follow for the public hearing, if one is requested.
