Because EPA received adverse comment, we are removing the direct final exclusion for Eastman Chemical Company—Texas Operations, published on September 24, 2010, 75 FR 58315. We stated in that direct final rule that if we received adverse comment by October 25, 2010, the direct final rule would not take effect and we would publish a timely removal in the Federal Register. We subsequently received adverse comment on that direct final rule. We will address the comments submitted in a subsequent final action which will be based on the parallel proposed rule also published on September 24, 2010, 75 FR 58346. As stated in the direct final rule and the parallel proposed rule, we will not institute a second comment period on this action.
