SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Because EPA received comment, we are withdrawing the direct final rule for extension of the Cross-Media Electronic Reporting Rule (CROMERR) deadline for authorized programs (states, tribes, or local governments) with existing electronic document receiving systems to submit applications for EPA approval under CROMERR, published on October 17, 2008. We stated in that direct final rule that if we received comment by November 3, 2008, the direct final rule would not take effect and we would publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register. We subsequently received comment on that direct final rule. We will address those comments in any subsequent final action, which will be based on the parallel proposed rule also published on October 17, 2008 (73 FR 61737). As stated in the direct final rule and the parallel proposed rule, we will not institute a second comment period on this action.
