Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Withdrawal of direct final rule.


On January 24, 2006 (71 FR 3773), EPA published a direct final rule to approve a revision updating the Long-Term Strategy of the State Implementation Plan (SIP) for Class I Visibility Protection, which was submitted by the Governor of Colorado with a letter dated March 24, 2005. The direct final action was published without prior proposal because EPA anticipated no adverse comments. EPA stated in the direct final rule that if we received adverse comments by February 23, 2006, the direct final rule would be withdrawn and would not take effect. EPA subsequently received timely adverse comments. Therefore, the direct final rule is being withdrawn and the comments will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on the proposed rule also published on January 24, 2006 (71 FR 3796). EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.


The direct final rule published on January 24, 2006 (71 FR 3773) is withdrawn as of March 14, 2006.
