Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Withdrawal of proposed rule.


EPA is withdrawing the proposed rule published on September 12, 2005 which proposed approval of a redesignation request and maintenance plan submitted by the Commonwealth of Virginia for the City of Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania County, and Stafford County (the Fredericksburg area). The Fredericksburg area is currently designated nonattainment for the eight-hour ozone national ambient air quality standard (NAAQS). It is EPA's intent to publish a proposed rule in the near future which will re-propose approval of the redesignation of the Fredericksburg area and the associated maintenance plan, and provide an expanded discussion as to why the redesignation request for this area is approvable under the Clean Air Act.


The September 12, 2005 proposed rule published at 70 FR 53746 is withdrawn as of September 30, 2005.
