Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Withdrawal of direct final rule.


Due to receipt of adverse comments, EPA is withdrawing the direct final rule to approve revisions to Texas General Rules and Regulations for Control of Air Pollution by Permits for New Sources and Modifications. In the direct final rule published September 24, 2001 (66 FR 48796), we stated that if we received adverse comment by October 24, 2001, the direct final rule would be withdrawn and would not take effect. The EPA will address all public comments in a subsequent final rule based on the proposed rule also published on September 24, 2001 (66 FR 48850). The EPA subsequently received adverse comments on the direct final rule from Public Citizen and from Lowerre & Kelly, Attorneys at Law.


The Direct final is withdrawn as of November 23, 2001.
