Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Withdrawal of direct final rule.


Due to receipt of a letter of adverse comment, EPA is withdrawing the direct final rule approving revisions which establish reasonably available control technology (RACT) requirements for 18 major sources of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and nitrogen oxides (NOX) located in the Philadelphia-Wilmington-Trenton ozone nonattainment area. In the direct final rule published on August 20, 2001 (66 FR 43502), we stated that if we received adverse comment by September 19, 2001, the rule would be withdrawn and not take effect. EPA subsequently received adverse comments from the Citizens for Pennsylvania's Future (PennFuture). EPA will address the comments received in a subsequent Start Printed Page 49108final action based upon the proposed action also published on August 20, 2001 (66 FR 43551). EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.


The direct final rule is withdrawn as of September 26, 2001.
