ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 52

[EPA-R06-OAR-2013-0167; FRL-9962-21-Region 6]


Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans; Louisiana; 
Volatile Organic Compounds Rule Revision and Stage II Vapor Recovery

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Withdrawal of direct final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is withdrawing a 
direct final rule published on March 23, 2017 because relevant adverse 
comments were received. The rule pertained to EPA approval of Louisiana 
State Implementation Plan (SIP) revisions controlling emissions of 
volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and changing the Stage II gasoline 
vapor recovery rule. In a separate subsequent final rulemaking EPA will 
address the comments received.

DATES: The direct final rule published on March 23, 2017 (82 FR 14822), 
is withdrawn effective May 22, 2017.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Wendy Jacques, (214) 665-7395.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document ``we,'' ``us,'' and 
``our'' means the EPA. On March 23, 2017, we published a direct final 
rule approving Louisiana SIP revisions controlling emissions of VOCs 
and changing the Stage II gasoline vapor recovery rule (82 FR 14822). 
The direct final rule was published without prior proposal because we 
anticipated no adverse comments. We stated in the direct final rule 
that if we received relevant adverse comments by April 24, 2017, we 
would publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register. We received 
relevant adverse comments and accordingly are withdrawing the direct 
final rule. In a separate subsequent final rulemaking we will address 
the comments received.
