Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Withdrawal of direct final rule.

SUMMARY:

Due to receipt of adverse comments, EPA is withdrawing amendments that were included in the direct final rule published on April 11, 2003 (68 FR 17741), amending the definition of nonroad engines to also include all engines certified as part of a nonroad engine family if used in agricultural applications in the State of California. Because this amendment is being withdrawn, the existing definition regarding nonroad engines remains in effect. We will address the adverse comments in a subsequent final action based on the parallel proposal published on April 11, 2003 (68 FR 17763).

DATES:

The following provision of the direct final rule published at 68 FR 17741 (April 11, 2003) is withdrawn as of May 14, 2003:

(1) The revision to 40 CFR 89.2, definition of “Nonroad engine”, paragraph (1)(iv).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

We stated in the direct final rule published at 68 FR 17741 (April 11, 2003) that if we received adverse comment on the amendment, by May 12, 2003, we would publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register. We have received adverse comments on the amendments to 40 CFR 89.2.

As a result of the adverse comments received, we are withdrawing the amendment to § 89.2. We intend to consider the issues raised by the comments in a final action based on the concurrent notice of proposed rulemaking (68 FR 17763).
