Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Withdrawal of direct final rule.


EPA is withdrawing the direct final rule to approve revisions to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's State Implementation Plan (SIP). The revisions consist of an update to the SIP-approved Motor Vehicle Emissions Budgets (MVEBs) for nitrogen oxides (NOX) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and an updated point source inventory for NOX and VOCs for the 1997 8-Hour Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard SIP for Lancaster County. In the direct final rule published on August 8, 2013, the table with the revised MVEBs contained numerical errors. Therefore, EPA is withdrawing this direct final rule in its entirety. EPA will commence a separate rulemaking action for this SIP revision.


The direct final rule published at 78 FR 48323 on August 8, 2013, is withdrawn as of September 26, 2013.
