On May 1, 2001 (66 FR 21727), EPA proposed to approve the recision of various PGCAQCD rules from the Arizona State Implementation Plan (SIP). On the same day (66 FR 21675), EPA also published a direct final rule approving the recision of these rules from the SIP. The action provided a 30 day public comment period and explained that if we received adverse comments, we would withdraw the relevant direct final action.
We did receive adverse comments, and are therefore withdrawing the direct final recision of all of the rules. We are not opening an additional comment period. We intend to finalize action on these rules based on the May 1, 2001 proposed action.Start List of Subjects
