SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 8, 2014, (79 FR 72552), the 
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a final rulemaking 
action announcing the approval of Pennsylvania's requests to 
redesignate to attainment the Harrisburg-Lebanon-Carlisle and York 
nonattainment areas for the 1997 annual PM2.5 NAAQS and the 
Harrisburg-Lebanon-Carlisle-York 2006 24-hour PM2.5 NAAQS 
nonattainment area.

Need for Correction

    As published, the final redesignation contains errors. EPA 
inadvertently added the word ``Moderate'' in the tables for the 1997 
annual and the 2006 24-hour PM2.5 NAAQS. The intent of the 
final rule was to redesignate the Areas to attainment. Moderate is a 
classification for nonattainment areas. This action corrects the tables 
of 40 CFR part 81 for Pennsylvania's 1997 annual and 2006 24-hour 
PM2.5 NAAQS.

List of Subjects in 40 CFR Part 81
