40 CFR Part 52

[R05-OAR-2008-0031; FRL-8919-7]

Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; 
Indiana; 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 May 5, 2009 (74 FR 20599), direct final rule approving 
a rule revision to extend Federally Enforceable State Operating Permit 
renewal terms from five years to ten years. The State of Indiana 
submitted this revision as a modification to the State Implementation 
Plan on December 19, 2007. In the direct final rule, EPA stated that if 
adverse comments were submitted by June 4, 2009, the rule would be 
withdrawn and not take effect. On May 19, 2009, 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 May 5, 
2009 (74 FR 20665). EPA will not institute a second comment period on 
this action.

DATES: The direct final rule published at 74 FR 20599 on May 5, 2009, 
is withdrawn as of June 17, 2009.
