On January 2, 2013 (78 FR 45), a proposed rulemaking was published in the Federal Register entitled “Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; Georgia: New Source Review—Prevention of Significant Deterioration” to approve changes to Georgia's SIP-approved regulations entitled “Air Quality Control Rule 391-3-.1.” The proposed rule version published in the Federal Register on January 2, 2013, was an incorrect version and EPA therefore, is now withdrawing its January 2, 2013, proposed rulemaking action. In a separate action, the correct version of EPA's proposed rulemaking related to Georgia's Air Quality Control Rule 391-3-.1 is being provided for public comment. This course of action will promote efficiency, mitigate confusion, and create a new comment period on the future proposed action to approve Georgia's SIP revisions related to Rule 391-3-1 with a proper basis of evaluation.
