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 District of Columbia. In the direct final rule published on October 16, 2001 (66 FR 52538), EPA stated that if adverse comments were received by November 15, 2001, the rule would be withdrawn and not take effect. EPA subsequently received adverse comments. EPA will address the comments received in a subsequent final action based upon the proposed action also published on October 16, 2001 (66 FR 52561). EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.
The direct final rule is withdrawn as of November 26, 2001.Start Further Info
