Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Withdrawal of direct final rule.


Due to the receipt of an adverse comment, the EPA is withdrawing the September 13, 2007 (72 FR 52286), direct final rule approving the State of Indiana's March 30, 2007, request to revise the Indiana State Implementation Plan (SIP) by adding a volatile organic compound (VOC) rule for fuel grade ethanol production at dry mills. In the direct final rule, EPA stated that if adverse comments were submitted by October 15, 2007, the rule would be withdrawn and not take effect. On October 8, 2007, EPA received a comment. EPA believes this comment is adverse and, therefore, EPA is withdrawing the direct final rule. EPA will address the comment in a subsequent final action based upon the proposed action also published on September 13, 2007 (72 FR 52320). EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.


The direct final rule published at 72 FR 52286 on September 13, 2007, is withdrawn as of November 1, 2007.
