Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans and Designation of Areas for Air Quality Planning Purposes; State of Tennessee

59 FR 53741

DATE: Wednesday, October 26, 1994
ACTION: Final rule; withdrawal.

SUMMARY: Due to an adverse comment, EPA is removing the approval of a marginal nonattainment area state implementation plan (SIP) revision for Memphis/Shelby County, Tennessee, submitted by the State of Tennessee for the purpose of bringing about attainment of the national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for ozone. The original action was published in the Federal Register on August 4, 1994, as a direct final rule. 59 FR 39692. As stated in the Federal Register document, if adverse or critical comments were received by September 6, 1994, the effective date would be delayed and timely notice would be published in the Federal Register. Therefore, due to receiving an adverse comment within the comment period, EPA is removing amendments relating to the SIP revision for Memphis/Shelby County, TN, in the final rule and will address all public comments received in a subsequent final rule based on the proposed rule also published on August 4, 1994. 59 FR 39715. EPA will not institute a second comment period on this document.

EFFECTIVE DATE: October 26, 1994.
