Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Partial withdrawal of proposed rule.

SUMMARY:

On April 18, 2000, EPA published a proposed rule (65 FR 20788) to approve reasonably available control technology (RACT) determinations submitted by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) for twenty-six major sources of nitrogen oxides (NOX) and/or volatile organic compounds (VOC). In separate final rules, EPA has already approved the RACT determinations for ten of the twenty-six sources covered by the April 18, 2000 proposed rule. In the rules portion of today's Federal Register, EPA is approving the RACT determinations for an additional thirteen of twenty-six sources covered by the April 18, 2000 proposed rule. EPA is hereby withdrawing its April 18, 2000 proposed rule with regard to the remaining three sources. The April 18, 2000 (65 FR 20788) proposed rule is being withdrawn with regard to Doverspike Brothers Coal Co., Hedstrom Corporation, and the thermal coal dryers at EME Homer City, LP. These three formerly RACT-subject sources have been permanently shut down and the Pennsylvania DEP has indicated to EPA that no RACT need be approved for them.

DATES:

Effective Date: The proposed rule for Doverspike Brothers Coal Co., Hedstrom Corporation, and the thermal coal dryers at EME Homer City published at 65 FR 20788 is withdrawn as of March 8, 2006.
