Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Withdrawal of direct final rule.


On June 30, 2004 (69 FR 39337), EPA published a direct final rule announcing the redesignation of the lead nonattainment area in Iron County, Missouri, to attainment of the National Ambient Air quality Standard (NAAQS) for lead and announcing the approval of the maintenance plan for this area including a settlement agreement. The direct final action was published without prior proposal because EPA anticipated no adverse comment. EPA stated in the direct final rule that if EPA received adverse comment by July 30, 2004, EPA would publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register. EPA subsequently received a timely adverse comment on the direct final rule. Therefore, EPA is withdrawing the direct final approval. EPA will address the comment in a subsequent final action based on the parallel proposal also published on June 30, 2004 (69 FR 39382). As stated in the parallel proposal, EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.


The direct final rule published on June 30, 2004, at 69 FR 39337, is withdrawn as of August 24, 2004.
