Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Withdrawal of direct final rule.


Due to our receipt of adverse written public comments, EPA is withdrawing the direct final rule to approve Pennsylvania's section 111(d) plan for the Control of Landfill Gas Emissions From Existing Municipal Solid Waste Landfills. In the direct final rule published on June 24, 2003 (68 FR 37421), EPA stated that if we received adverse written public comment by July 24, 2003, the rule would be withdrawn and would not take effect. EPA subsequently received a letter of adverse comments. EPA will address the comments received in a subsequent final action based upon the proposed action also published on June 24, 2003 (68 FR 37449). EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.


The Direct final rule is withdrawn as of August 19, 2003.
