Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Partial withdrawal of direct final rule.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is withdrawing a portion of a direct final rule published on February 27, 2019 because relevant adverse comments were received. The rule pertained to EPA approval of revisions to New Mexico's State Implementation Plan (SIP) incorporating updates to SIP-approved New Mexico statutes, as well as removing several provisions from the SIP, as EPA's previous approval of these provisions into the SIP was done in error. In a separate subsequent final rulemaking, EPA will address the portion of the direct final on which relevant adverse comments were received.
Effective May 16, 2019, the EPA withdraws amendatory instructions 2.b. and 2.h. in the direct final rule published at 84 FR 6334, on February 27, 2019.

Throughout this document “we,” “us,” and “our” means the EPA. On February 27, 2019 we published a direct final rule to approve revisions to the New Mexico SIP incorporating updates to SIP-approved New Mexico statutes, as well as removing several provisions from the SIP, as EPA's previous approval of these provisions into the SIP was done in error (84 FR 6334). 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 March 29, 2019, we would publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register. We received relevant adverse comments regarding the removal of New Mexico Statutes Annotated 1978 (NMSA) sections 74-2-6, 74-2-12, and 74-2-13 and accordingly are withdrawing the portion of the direct final rule on which adverse comments were received. In a separate subsequent final rulemaking we will address the comments received.
