Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Withdrawal of Direct final rule.


Due to an adverse comment, EPA is withdrawing the direct final rule to approve a SIP revision submitted by West Virginia pertaining to its abbreviated SIP for the Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) Nitrogen Oxides (NOX) Annual and NOX Ozone Season trading programs. In the direct final rule published on September 13, 2007 (72 FR 52289), we stated that if we received adverse comment by October 15, 2007, the rule would be withdrawn and not take effect. EPA subsequently received an adverse comment. EPA will address the comment received in a subsequent final action based upon the proposed action also published on September 13, 2007 (72 FR 52325). EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.


Effective Date: The Direct final rule is withdrawn as of November 7, 2007.
