Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Withdrawal of direct final rule.


EPA is withdrawing the July 8, 2008 (73 FR 38925), direct final rule revisions to Indiana's State Plan to control air pollutants from large Municipal Waste Combustors (MWC). The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) submitted the State Plan on August 24, 2007.

In the direct final rule, EPA stated that if adverse comments were submitted by August 7, 2008, the rule would be withdrawn and not take effect. On July 29, 2008, IDEM submitted a comment to EPA. EPA believes this comment is adverse and, therefore, EPA is withdrawing the direct final rule. Specifically, IDEM commented that, in the table for particulate matter, there was a typographical error in identifying the appropriate footnotes for the emission limitations. In addition, IDEM stated that it had recently submitted an agency correction for publication in the Indiana Register to correct the footnotes for mercury and sulfur dioxide in the emission limitations table, and requested that these corrections be part of the final federal approval. EPA will address the comment in a subsequent final action based upon the proposed action also published on July 8, 2008 (73 FR 38954). EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.


The direct final rule published at 73 FR 38925 on July 8, 2008, is withdrawn as of August 21, 2008.
