The State of Indiana submitted this revision as a modification to the State Implementation Plan for open burning on November 14, 2011. In the direct final rule, EPA stated that if adverse comments were submitted by October 17, 2014, the rule would be withdrawn and not take effect. On September 21, 2014, EPA received an adverse comment and, therefore, is withdrawing the direct final rule. EPA will address the comment in a subsequent final action based upon the proposed action also published on September 17, 2014. EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.
