Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Delay of effective date and extension of comment period.
Due to the tragic events of September 11, 2001 and the resulting temporary closure of the Region 2 office of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in New York City and the disruption of mail delivery and telephone service, the EPA is extending the comment period of a revision to the New York State Implementation Plan and delaying the effective date.
The effective date of the direct final rule published on September 25, 2001 at 66 FR 48957 is delayed until December 17, 2001 unless adverse comments are received by November 15, 2001. If EPA receives such comment, EPA will publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register informing the public that this rule will not take effect.
All comments should be addressed to: Raymond Werner, Chief, Air Programs Branch, Environmental Protection Agency, Region 2 Office, 290 Broadway, New York, New York 10007-1866.
