SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that the President has exempted the

over any solid waste management facility or disposal site, or (2) 
engaged in any activity resulting, or which may result, in the disposal 
or management of solid waste or hazardous waste subject to all Federal,

Presidential Determination No. 99-37
September 20, 1999
Memorandum for the Administrator of the Environmental Protection 
Agency [and] the Secretary of the Air Force
Subject: Presidential Determination on Classified Information 
Concerning the Air Force's Operating Location Near Groom Lake, 
Nevada

    I find that it is in the paramount interest of the United States 
to exempt the United States Air Force's operating location near 
Groom Lake, Nevada, (the subject of litigation in Kasza V. Browner 
(D. Nev. CV-S-94-795-PMP) and Frost v. Perry (D. Nev. CV-S-94-714-
PMP)), from any applicable requirement for the disclosure to 
unauthorized persons of classified information concerning that 
operating location. Therefore, pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 6961(a), I 
hereby exempt the Air Force's operating location near Groom Lake, 
Nevada, from any Federal, State, interstate, or local provision 
respecting control and abatement of solid waste or hazardous waste 
disposal that would require the disclosure of classified information 
concerning that operating location to any unauthorized person. This 
exemption shall be effective for the full one-year statutory period.
    Nothing herein is intended to: (a) imply that in the absence of 
such a Presidential exemption, the Resource Conservation and 
Recovery Act (RCRA) or any other provision of law permits or 
requires disclosure of classified information to unauthorized 
persons; or (b) limit the applicability or enforcement of any 
requirement of law applicable to the Air Force's operating location 
near Groom Lake, Nevada, except those provisions, if any, that would 
require the disclosure of classified information.
    The Secretary of the Air Force is authorized and directed to 
publish this determination in the Federal Register.
William J. Clinton
