Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Withdrawal of direct final rule.


Due to an adverse comment, EPA is withdrawing the direct final rule to approve reasonable available control technology (RACT) to limit nitrogen oxides (NOX) emissions from two individual sources located in Fairfax County, Virginia, namely, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the National Reconnaissance Office. In the direct final rule published on September 9, 2004 (69 FR 54574), we stated that if we received adverse comment by October 12, 2004, the rule would be withdrawn and not take effect. EPA received adverse comments on October 12, 2004. EPA will address the comments received in a subsequent final action based upon the proposed action also published on September 9, 2004 (69 FR 54600). EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.


The Direct final rule is withdrawn as of November 4, 2004.
