Removal of a direct final rule paragraph.
Due to an adverse comment, EPA is removing a paragraph included in a direct final rule approving revisions to the California State Implementation Plan. EPA published the direct final rule on September 18, 2000 (65 FR 56251), approving a rule revision from the San Diego County Air Pollution Control District (SDCAPCD). As stated in that Federal Register document, if adverse or critical comments were received by October 18, 2000, the rule would not take effect and timely notice would be published in the Federal Register. However, EPA did not publsh the withdrawal before the effective date of the rule and is, therefore, removing a paragraph added by that rule. EPA has received adverse comments on that direct final rule and may address these comments in a final action within the near future. EPA will not institute a second comment period on this future final action.

EPA received an adverse comment concerning SDCAPCD Rule 67.11—Wood Products Coating Operations and the addition of 40 CFR 52.220(c)(255)(i)(F)(1). Prior to the close of the comment period, SDCAPCD requested that we withdraw our direct final approval action on the rule. Consequently, we are removing only the portion of the direct final rule published at 65 FR 56251 concerning SDCAPCD Rule 67.11. Today's action does not affect our other direct final rulemaking action approving Bay Area Air Quality Management District Rule 8-11—Metal container, Metal Closure, and Metal Coil Coating.Start List of Subjects
