SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Because EPA received adverse comment, we are 
withdrawing the direct final rule for National Oil and Hazardous 
Substances Pollution Contingency Plan; Revision to Increase Public 
Availability of the Administrative Record File, published on November 
7, 2012 (77 FR 66729). We stated in that direct final rule that if we 
received adverse comment by December 7, 2012, the direct final rule 
would not take effect and we would publish a timely withdrawal in the 
Federal Register. We subsequently received adverse comment on that 
direct final rule, which we plan to address in a subsequent final 
rulemaking based on the parallel proposed rule also published on 
November 7, 2012 (77 FR 66783). As stated in the direct final rule and 
the parallel proposed rule, we will not institute a second comment 
period on this action.
