Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Removal of direct final rule.


Due to the receipt of an adverse comment, the EPA is removing the November 25, 2005 (70 FR 70999), direct final rule approving revisions to Indiana's sulfur dioxide (SO2) state implementation plan (SIP) for sources located in Dearborn County. These revisions to the SIP include: Revising SO2 emission limits for existing sources, making minor corrections by removing obsolete rule language, and updating information for sources listed in the rule. In the direct final rule, EPA stated that if adverse comments were submitted by December 27, 2005, the rule would be withdrawn and not take effect. On December 2, 2005, EPA received a comment. EPA believes this comment is adverse and, therefore, EPA is removing the direct final rule. EPA will address the comment in a subsequent final action based upon the proposed action also published on November 25, 2005 (70 FR 71071). EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.


This rule is effective on January 27, 2006.
