SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Throughout this document “we,” “us,” and “our” means the EPA. On March 21, 2017 we published a direct final rule approving the required second CO maintenance plan for the El Paso, Texas CO maintenance area as a revision to the Texas SIP (82 FR 14442). The direct final rule was published without prior proposal because we anticipated no adverse comments. We stated in the direct final rule that if we received relevant adverse comments by April 20, 2017, we would publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register. We received a relevant adverse comment and accordingly are withdrawing the direct final rule. In a separate subsequent final rulemaking we will address the comment received.
