Summary of Final Regulatory Flexibility Analysis
Less stringent application requirements are not included for small-business applicants because the directive under which these rules are adopted, in 2009 Wisconsin Act 112, does not provide such flexibility.
No substantive reporting will be imposed on small businesses.
The rules are not expected to impose significant costs on small businesses for other measures because the rules address submittal of documentation, and other activities, only by applicants that choose to participate in the tax-exempt private activity bonding addressed in the rules.

Summary of Final Regulatory Flexibility Analysis
The rule package will not have a significant economic impact on small business.

Engineering consultants and companies involved in dam construction and removal should benefit from an increase in project activity resulting from an increase in the supply of money for these kinds of projects.
Summary of Comments by Legislative Review Committees
No small businesses provided comments on the rule package during the public comment period.
Natural Resources
Environmental Protection — Hazardous Waste Management, Chs. NR 600—
DNR # WA-30-09
Revises section NR 660.10, relating to hazardous waste management. Effective 11-1-10.
Summary of Final Regulatory Flexibility Analysis
1. Describe the type of small business that will be affected by the rule.
The proposed rules affect small businesses that are large quantity or small quantity generators of hazardous waste. There is no direct correlation between the definitions of “small business" and “large quantity generator" or “small quantity generator," so a precise assessment of the definitions' effect on small business is not possible. Small businesses may be either large quantity or small quantity generators of hazardous waste, or neither. In any case, under the revised hazardous waste generator base fee statute, the maximum additional amount that a large quantity generator would have to pay is $470. A small quantity generator would pay a maximum of $350 more than in past years.
Under the statutory language in effect before the 2009-2011 biennial budget (2009 Wisconsin Act 28), all large quantity generators and small quantity generators who were required to submit a hazardous waste annual report were required to pay a base fee of $210 and $20 per ton for hazardous waste generated during the reporting year. The tonnage fee did not apply to any wastes that were recycled or reused, and if a generator recycled or reused all of its hazardous waste, it was not required to pay the base fee either.
