Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Withdrawal of direct final rule.
On July 15, 2011 (76 FR 41717), EPA published a direct final approval of a revision to the California State Implementation Plan (SIP). This revision concerned South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) Rule 1143, Consumer Paint Thinner & Multi-Purpose Solvents and Rule 1144, Metal Working Fluids & Direct-Contact Lubricants. 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 August 15, 2011, EPA would publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register. EPA received timely adverse comments. Consequently, with this revision we are withdrawing the direct final approval of SCAQMD Rules 1143 and 1144. EPA will either address the comments in a subsequent final action based on the parallel proposal also published on July 15, 2011 (76 FR 41745), or repropose an alternative action. As stated in the parallel proposal, EPA will not institute a second comment period on a subsequent final action. Accordingly, the amendment to 40 CFR 52.220 published in the Federal Register on July 15, 2011, (76 FR 41717) which was to become effective on September 13, 2011 is withdrawn.
EPA has established docket number EPA-R09-OAR-2011-0537 for this action.
