End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information


On May 7, 2001 (66 FR 22970), EPA proposed to approve the section 111(d)/129 Plan for the State of South Carolina submitted on September 19, 2000, for implementing and enforcing the Emission Guidelines applicable to existing Hospital /Medical/ Infectious Waste Incinerators. On the same day (66 FR 22927), EPA also published a direct final rule approving the State Plan. 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 received comments and are therefore withdrawing the direct final rule approving the State Plan. We are not opening an additional comment period. We intend to finalize action on these rules based on the May 7, 2001 proposed action.
