Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Withdrawal of direct final rule.


On June 7, 2004 (69 FR 31739), EPA published a direct final approval of revisions to the California State Implementation Plan (SIP). These revisions concerned GBUAPCD Rule 406, Open Outdoor Fires, GBUAPCD Rule 407, Incinerator Burning, and Ventura County Rule 56, Open Burning. The direct final action was published without prior proposal because EPA anticipated no adverse comment. The direct final rule stated that if adverse comments were received by July 7, 2004, EPA would publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register. EPA received a timely adverse comment and is, therefore, withdrawing the direct final approval. EPA will address the comment in a subsequent final action based on the parallel proposal also published on June 7, 2004 (69 FR 31782). As stated in the parallel proposal, EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action. Accordingly, the revision to 40 CFR 52.220, published in the Federal Register on June 7, 2004 (69 FR 31739), which was to become effective on August 6, 2004, is withdrawn.


The direct final rule published on June 7, 2004, at 69 FR 31739, is withdrawn as of July 15, 2004.
