Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Partial removal of direct final rule.


On January 2, 2008 (73 FR 48), EPA published a direct final approval of revisions to the California State Implementation Plan (SIP). These revisions concerned local rules that address circumvention, reduction of animal matter, and volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from gasoline bulk storage tanks, gasoline filling stations, petroleum refinery equipment, and petroleum solvent dry cleaning. The direct final action was published without prior proposal because EPA anticipated no adverse comment. The direct final rule stated that if adverse comments were received by February 1, 2008, EPA would publish a timely removal in the Federal Register. EPA received a timely adverse comment. Consequently, with this revision we are removing the direct final approval of SJVAPCD Rules 4104, 4402, 4404, 4453, 4454, 4625, 4641, and 4672. EPA will either address the comments in a subsequent final action based on the parallel proposal also published on January 2, 2008 (73 FR 48) or repropose an alternative action. As stated in the parallel proposal, EPA will not institute a second comment period on a subsequent final action. The other rules, MBUAPCD Rules 415, 418, and 1002, approved in the January 2, 2008 direct final action, are not affected by this removal and are incorporated into the SIP as of the original effective date of March 3, 2008.


The addition of 40 CFR 52.220(c)(351)(i)(C) published at 73 FR 48 on (January 2, 2008) is removed effective March 13, 2008.


EPA has established docket number EPA-R09-OAR-2007-1074 for this action. The index to the docket is available electronically at and in hard copy at EPA Region IX, 75 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA.
