Statewide Transportation Planning; Metropolitan Transportation Planning
Partial withdrawal of notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).
This document partially withdraws the proposed rulemaking in which the agencies proposed to amend its requirements on statewide and metropolitan planning (65 FR 33922, May 25, 2000; comment period ended at 65 FR 41891, July 7, 2000). This partial withdrawal is based on the level of critical comment received, the development of alternative means for implementing the topics addressed in the NPRM and the pendency of reauthorization of the surface transportation program. The agencies are withdrawing this rulemaking except for those sections that relate to ``consultation with non-metropolitan local officials'' which are addressed in the SNPRM published on June 19, 2002, at 67 FR 41648.
