Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Withdrawal of direct final rule.
Due to an adverse comment, EPA is withdrawing the June 26, 2007 direct final rule (72 FR 35015) to approve the actions of the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (IDEQ) and the Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) to address the provisions of the Clean Air Act section 110(a)(2)(D)(i) for the 8-hour ozone and PM2.5 National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). In the June 26, 2007 direct final rule, we stated that if we received adverse comments by July 26, 2007, EPA would publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register informing the public that the rule would not take effect. EPA subsequently received adverse comment on that direct final rule. EPA will address all comments received in a subsequent final action based upon the proposed action also published on June 26, 2007 (72 FR 35022). EPA will not institute a second comment period on this document.
Effective Date: The direct final rule published on June 26, 2007 (72 FR 35015) is withdrawn as of August 17, 2007.Start Further Info
