40 CFR Part 52

[EPA-R05-OAR-2007-0293; FRL-8490-2]

Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; 
Indiana; VOC Emissions From Fuel Grade Ethanol Production Operations; 
Withdrawal of Direct Final Rule

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Withdrawal of direct final rule.


SUMMARY: Due to the receipt of an adverse comment, the EPA is 
withdrawing the September 13, 2007 (72 FR 52286), direct final rule 
approving the State of Indiana's March 30, 2007, request to revise the 
Indiana State Implementation Plan (SIP) by adding a volatile organic 
compound (VOC) rule for fuel grade ethanol production at dry mills. In 
the direct final rule, EPA stated that if adverse comments were 
submitted by October 15, 2007, the rule would be withdrawn and not take 
effect. On October 8, 2007, EPA received a comment. EPA believes this 
comment is adverse and, therefore, EPA 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 13, 2007 (72 FR 
52320). EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.

DATES: The direct final rule published at 72 FR 52286 on September 13, 
2007, is withdrawn as of November 1, 2007.
