Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Withdrawal of direct final rule.
On August 23, 2002 (67 FR 54580), EPA published a direct final determination that the San Diego area had attained the 1-hour ozone air quality standard by the deadline required by the Clean Air Act. The direct final action was published without prior proposal because EPA anticipated no adverse comment. The Start Printed Page 65046direct final rule stated that if adverse comments were received by September 23, 2002, EPA would publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register. EPA received a timely adverse comment and is, therefore, withdrawing the direct final approval. Elsewhere in this issue EPA addresses the comments in a final action based on the parallel proposal also published on August 23, 2002 (67 FR 54601). As stated in the parallel proposal, EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.
The direct final rule published on August 23, 2002 (67 FR 54580), is withdrawn as of October 23, 2002.Start Further Info
