Withdrawal of direct final rule.


On January 23, 2007 (72 FR 2776), EPA published a direct final rule approving the redesignation of the El Paso, Texas, carbon monoxide (CO) nonattainment area to attainment for the CO National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) and the CO maintenance plan with its associated Motor Vehicle Emission Budgets (MVEBs). EPA also found the MVEBs adequate. The direct final action was published without prior proposal because EPA anticipated no adverse comment. EPA stated in the direct final rule that if EPA received relevant adverse comment by February 22, 2007, EPA would publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register. EPA Start Printed Page 14044subsequently received a timely relevant adverse comment on the direct final rule. Therefore, EPA is withdrawing the direct final approval, as well as the finding of adequacy for the MVEBs. EPA will address the comment in a subsequent final action based on the parallel proposal also published on January 23, 2007 (72 FR 2825).


The direct final rule published on January 23, 2007 (72 FR 2776), is withdrawn as of March 26, 2007.
