1302 Regulations Governing Hazardous Waste
NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
In order for the State of Delaware to maintain authorization from the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to administer its own hazardous waste management program, the State must maintain a program that is equivalent to and no less stringent than the Federal program. To accomplish this, the State is proposing to make miscellaneous changes to the DRGHW that correct existing errors in the hazardous waste regulations, add clarification or enhance the current hazardous waste regulations.
The public hearing on the proposed amendments to DRGHW will be held on Thursday October 22, 2009 starting at 6:00 p.m. in the Richardson and Robbins Auditorium, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE.

This action will extend the rabbit hunting season from its current ending date of February 15th to the last day of February or the last Saturday of February should February end on a Sunday. This season extension was requested by Delaware hunters who have lost some rabbit hunting opportunities over the years due to conflicts with deer hunting seasons. This short season extension should not have a significant impact on the well being of the rabbit population.
This regulatory change will be presented at a public hearing on December 2, 2009 beginning at 6:30 p.m., DNREC Auditorium, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, Delaware. The hearing record for these proposed Regulations will remain open until 4:30p.m.. Thursday December 3, 2009.

The record will remain open for written public comment until 4:30 p.m..December 3, 2009.
