    10 CSR 25-10.010
    This rule was reviewed as part of the Red Tape Reduction initiative. During that review, the Department determined that much of the rule merely restates statutory language and is therefore unnecessary and duplicative. And, the elements of the rule that are not found in statute are not necessary.

    10 CSR 25-11.279
    While many Missouri-specific rules were removed during the process of evaluating Missouri rules after the no stricter than statute for hazardous waste passed, there are some remaining state-specific requirements that were reviewed as part of the red tape reduction process and many of these are proposed for removal in order to align Missouri hazardous waste rules more closely with the federal hazardous waste rules and reduce the regulatory burden on hazardous waste facilities

    10 CSR 25-15.010
    This rule implements the framework for the Brownfields/Voluntary Cleanup Program, and provides information on application procedures and eligible costs for participants in the program. A close review of the rule and comparison to the statute found in Sections 260.565 through 260.575 Revised Statutes of Missouri (RSMo) revealed that much of the rule merely restates information already found in the statute and it is unnecessary to duplicate this information in the rule. Eliminating duplicative provisions will also avoid the need to update the rule if the statute changes. This rulemaking will remove rules which reiterate the requirements

    No
    07/16/2018
    10 CSR 25-2.020

    While many Missouri-specific rules were removed during the process of evaluating Missouri rules after the no stricter than statute for hazardous waste passed, there are some remaining state-specific requirements that were reviewed as part of the red tape reduction process and many of these the program believes can now be eliminated so that Missouri hazardous waste rules align more closely with the federal hazardous waste rules and reduce the regulatory burden for hazardous waste facilities

    10 CSR 25-9.020
    This rule was reviewed as part of the Red Tape Reduction initiative. Current federal regulations allow recycling of this material under a conditional exclusion that provides sufficient oversight of conditions to ensure proper management of the material. As a result, it is no longer necessary to require a resource recovery certificate for management of this same material and the rule is proposed for rescission to be replaced with the exclusions contained in the federal Definition of Solid Waste rule.
