Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Direct final rule; withdrawal.


On July 30, 2003, EPA published a direct final rule (68 FR 44631) approving revisions to the Texas State Implementation Plan (SIP) concerning Control of Air Pollution from Nitrogen Compounds, Cement Kilns. The revision was based on a request from the State of Texas submitted to EPA on April 2, 2003. In the proposed rules section of the July 30, 2003, Federal Register (68 FR 44714), we stated that written comment must be received by August 29, 2003. On August 28, 2003, we received written adverse comments on our July 30, 2003, rulemaking action. The EPA is withdrawing this final rule due to the adverse comments received on this rulemaking action. In a subsequent final rule, we will summarize and respond to written comments received and take final rulemaking action on this requested Texas SIP revision.


The direct final rule published at 68 FR 44631 is withdrawn on September 15, 2003.
