ACTION: Withdrawal of proposed rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: On November 21, 2013, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a direct final rule and accompanying proposal approving portions of two revisions to the Texas State Implementation Plan (SIP) concerning the Permits for Specific Designated Facilities Program, also referred to as the FutureGen Program. The direct final action was published without prior proposal because EPA anticipated no adverse comments. EPA stated in the direct final rule that if we received relevant, adverse comments by December 23, 2013, EPA would publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register. EPA received a letter dated December 19, 2013, from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality stating that the March 9, 2006 and July 2, 2010 SIP revisions specific to the FutureGen program have been withdrawn from our consideration as revisions to the Texas SIP. Accordingly, EPA is withdrawing our proposed approval of the Texas FutureGen program and in a separate rulemaking in PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 631 today’s Federal Register we are also withdrawing the corresponding direct final approval. We find that no further action is necessary on the Texas FutureGen Program March 9, 2006 and July 2, 2010 SIP revisions. The State’s action also withdraws from EPA’s review the FutureGen Program component of the January 22, 2010 Consent Decree between EPA and the BCCA Appeal Group, Texas Association of Business, and Texas Oil and Gas Association. This withdrawal is being taken under section 110 and parts C and D of the Federal Clean Air Act. DATES: The proposed rule published on November 21, 2013 (78 FR 69812) is withdrawn as of January 6, 2014.
