Withdrawal of direct final rule.
Due to an adverse comment, the EPA is withdrawing the direct final rule approving new emissions tests averaging provisions for the State of Illinois. In the direct final rule published on April 15, 2002 (67 FR 18115), EPA stated that if EPA receives adverse comment by May 15, 2002, the rule would be withdrawn and not take effect. EPA subsequently received adverse comment. EPA will address the comment received in a subsequent final action based upon the proposed action also published on April 15, 2002 (67 FR 18149). EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.
