Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Withdrawal of direct final rule.


Due to an adverse comment, EPA is withdrawing the direct final rule to approve reasonable available control technology (RACT) to limit volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from distilled spirits facilities. In the direct final rule published on May 22, 2001 (66 FR 28058), we stated that if we received adverse comment by June 21, 2001, the rule would be withdrawn and not take effect. EPA received adverse comments on June 21, 2001. EPA will address the comments received in a subsequent final action based upon the proposed action also published on May 22, 2001 (66 FR 28138). EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.


The Direct final rule published at 66 FR 28058, May 22, 2001, is withdrawn as of July 6, 2001.
