SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

EPA is withdrawing the April 16, 2012 (77 FR 22497), direct final rule approving a revision to the Illinois SIP that added a “small container exemption” for pleasure craft surface coating operations in the Chicago and Metro-East St. Louis 8-hour ozone nonattainment areas. In the direct final rule, EPA stated that if adverse comments were received by May 16, 2012, the rule would be withdrawn and not take effect. On April 16, 2012, EPA received a comment, which it interprets as adverse and, therefore, EPA is withdrawing the direct final rule. EPA will address the comment in a subsequent final action based upon the proposed rulemaking action, also published on April 16, 2012 (77 FR 22550). EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.
