Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Removal of amendments in direct final rule.


Due to an adverse comment, EPA is removing the direct final rule to approve Texas Transportation Control Measures rule. In the direct final rule published on July 16, 2001 (66 FR 36921), we stated that if we received adverse comment by August 15, 2001, the rule would be withdrawn and would not take effect. EPA subsequently received an adverse comment, but did not publish the withdrawal notice prior to the effective date of the rule. In this action, EPA is removing the amendments published on July 16. EPA will address the comments received in a subsequent final action based upon the proposed action also published on July 16, 2001 (66 FR 36963). EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.


This rule is effective as of September 27, 2001.
