Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Withdrawal of direct final rule.


Due to adverse comment, EPA is withdrawing the direct final rule published December 30, 2002, (see 67 FR 79523) approving several revisions to the Kentucky State Implementation Plan. The revisions include separating Kentucky's air permits rule into several, smaller rules, and renumbering and rewriting these rules in plain English. EPA stated in the direct final rule that if EPA received adverse comment by January 29, 2003, the rule would be withdrawn and not take effect. EPA subsequently received adverse comment. EPA will address the comment in a subsequent final action based upon the proposed action also published on December 30, 2002 (see 67 FR 79543). EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.


The direct final rule is withdrawn as of February 10, 2003.
