In the direct final rule, EPA stated that if adverse comments were submitted by March 16, 2020, the rule would be withdrawn and not take effect. EPA received an adverse comment prior to the close of the comment period and, therefore, is withdrawing the direct final rule. EPA will address the comment in a subsequent final action based upon the proposed rule also published on February 14, 2020 (85 FR 8520). EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.
