Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Michigan; Withdrawal of Direct Final Rule


Withdrawal Of Direct Final Rule.


Due to the receipt of an adverse comment, the EPA is withdrawing the direct final rule approving a revision to Michigan's definition of volatile organic compound. The approval would have revised Michigan's State Implementation Plan (SIP) for ozone. In the direct final rule published on September 2, 2003 (68 FR 52104), EPA stated that if EPA receives adverse comment by October 2, 2003, the rule would be withdrawn and not take effect. On September 2, 2003, EPA subsequently received one comment. We believe this comment is adverse and, therefore, we are withdrawing the direct final rule. EPA will address the comment received in a subsequent final action based on the proposed action published on September 2, 2003.
