Removal of final rule.


Because EPA received adverse comments, we are removing our approval of the revision to the Allegheny County portion of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania State Implementation Plan which consists of Allegheny County's state operating permit program. EPA is removing the language of the rule which was to approve the revision in accordance with the requirements of sections 110 and 112 of the Clean Air Act. The original action was published in the Federal Register on June 26, 2003 as a direct final rule. We will address the comments received in a future final action based on the proposed rule which was also published on June 26, 2003.


This rule is effective on November 25, 2003.
