Elsewhere in today's Federal Register, a separate proposed rulemaking entitiled “Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; West Virginia; Redesignation of the City of Weirton PM-10 Nonattainment Area to Attainment and Approval of the Limited Maintenance Plan,” provides more detailed legal and factual basis for supporting our decision to withdraw the NPR and its related correcting amendment. Our proposed action to approve the State of West Virginia request to redesignate the Weirton area to attainment and approve the associated maintenance plan is also found in the NPR in today's Federal Register.

Separate dockets have been prepared for the new proposal and this notice to withdraw the October 27, 2004 Weirton notice of proposed rulemaking.
