Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; 
West Virginia; Withdrawal of Direct Final Rule

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Withdrawal of Direct final rule.


SUMMARY: Due to an adverse comment, EPA is withdrawing the direct final 
rule to approve a SIP revision submitted by West Virginia pertaining to 
its abbreviated SIP for the Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) Nitrogen 
Oxides (NOX) Annual and NOX Ozone Season trading 
programs. In the direct final rule published on September 13, 2007 (72 
FR 52289), we stated that if we received adverse comment by October 15, 
2007, the rule would be withdrawn and not take effect. EPA subsequently 
received an adverse comment. EPA will address the comment received in a 
subsequent final action based upon the proposed action also published 
on September 13, 2007 (72 FR 52325). EPA will not institute a second 
comment period on this action.

DATES: Effective Date: The Direct final rule is withdrawn as of 
November 7, 2007.
