Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Withdrawal of direct final rule.


Due to an adverse comment, EPA is withdrawing the direct final rule fully approving the operating permit program of the Commonwealth of Virginia. In the direct final rule published on October 10, 2001 (66 FR 51581), we stated that if we received adverse comment by November 9, 2001, the rule would be withdrawn and not take effect. EPA subsequently received adverse comment. EPA will address the comments received in a subsequent final action based upon the proposed action also published on October 10, 2001 (66 FR 51620). EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.


The Direct final rule is withdrawn as of November 21, 2001.
