Indiana Administrative Code, Article 4, Rule 1, Open Burning Rule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The State of Indiana submitted this revision 
as a modification to the State Implementation Plan for open burning on 
November 14, 2011. In the direct final rule, EPA stated that if adverse 
comments were submitted by October 17, 2014, the rule would be 
withdrawn and not take effect. On September 21, 2014, EPA received an 
adverse comment and, therefore, is withdrawing the direct final rule.
