Download as PDF 15982 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 59 / Tuesday, March 29, 2005 / Notices owner or operator shall transmit a report to the Secretary that— 1. Describes the requests; 2. Provides an explanation as to why the requests could not be accommodated; and 3. Provides a time frame within which, if any, the airport will be able to accommodate the requests. (b) Such report shall be due on either February 1 or August 1 of each year if the airport has been unable to accommodate the request(s) in the six month period prior to the applicable due date. Discussion of Modification of an Existing Assurance Existing Assurance 31 is being modified to comply with recently enacted Public Law 108–76. Both the Airport Sponsor Assurances and the Non-Airport Sponsor Assurances are being modified with this legislation. The legislation now allows the proceeds from the sale of land no longer needed for noise compatibility purposes to be used for the purchase of non-residential buildings or property in the vicinity of residential buildings or property previously purchased by the airport as part of a noise compatibility program. Assurance 31 shall now read in its entirety: 31. Disposal of Land (a) For land purchased under a grant for airport noise compatibility purposes, it will dispose of the land when the land is no longer needed for such purposes at fair market value at the earliest practicable time. That portion of the proceeds or such disposition which is proportionate to the United States’ share of acquisition of such land will, at the discretion of the Secretary, (1) Be paid to the Secretary for deposit in the Trust Fund, or (2) be reinvested in an approved noise compatibility project, as prescribed by the Secretary, including the purchase of nonresidential buildings or property in the vicinity of residential buildings or property previously purchased by the airport as part of a noise compatibility program. (b) For land purchased under a grant for airport development purposes (other than noise compatibility), it will, when the land is no longer needed for airport purposes, dispose of such land at fair market value or make available to the Secretary an amount equal to the United States’ proportionate share of the fair market value of the land. That portion of the proceeds of such disposition which is proportionate to the United States’ share of the cost of acquisition of such land will, (a) Upon application to the Secretary, be reinvested in another eligible airport improvement project or VerDate jul<14>2003 17:01 Mar 28, 2005 Jkt 205001 projects approved by the Secretary at that airport or within the national airport system, or (b) be paid to the Secretary for deposit in the Trust Fund if no eligible project exists. (c) Land shall be considered to be needed for airport purposes under this assurance if (a) It may be needed for aeronautical purposes (including runway or within the national airport system, or (b) be paid to the Secretary for deposit in the Trust Fund if no eligible project exists. (d) Land shall be considered to be needed for airport purposes under this assurance if (a) It may be needed for aeronautical purposes (including runway protection zones) or serve as noise buffer land, and (b) the revenue from interim uses of such land contributes to the financial selfsufficiency of the airport. Further, land purchased with a grant received by an airport operator or owner before December 31, 1987, will be considered to be needed for airport purposes if the Secretary or Federal agency making such grant before December 31, 1987, was notified by the operator or owner of the uses of such land, did not object to such use, and the land continues to be used for that purpose, such use having commenced no later than December 15, 1989. (e) Disposition of such land under (a), (b), or (c) will be subject to the retention or reservation of any interest or right therein necessary to ensure that such land will only be used for purposes which are compatible with noise levels and safety associated with operation of the airport. Upon acceptance of the AIP grant by an airport sponsor, the assurances become a contractual obligation between the airport sponsor and the Federal government.

ACTION: Notice of funds availability: Broad agency announcement (BAA) for research projects and technology advancements under the Next Generation High-Speed Rail Program. AGENCY: Purpose and Scope The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) is soliciting proposal concept papers for various demonstration projects and technology advancements which have the potential to advance the deployment of high-speed rail service in the United States. Emphasis is on technologies which would permit costeffective upgrading and use of existing infrastructure. Technologies most likely to help facilitate the deployment of high-speed rail service are those which will (a) bring about cost reductions in constructing and maintaining equipment, track, and facilities; (b) reduce operating costs by providing more efficient operations; (c) improve the reliability of equipment and infrastructure components by reducing failures and/or reducing false failure detections; (d) improve safety by reducing human and technology failures; (e) enhance revenue-generating capability by attracting greater ridership through reducing trip times, upgrading customer service quality, increasing reliability, or improving on-time performance; or (f) enhance the social benefits or environmental aspects of higher speed rail. Eligible Participants Any responsible source may submit a proposal concept paper for consideration, including, but not limited to, state or local governments, or organizations of state or local governments, universities or institutions of higher education, hospitals, nonprofit organizations, private individuals, corporations, businesses or commercial organizations, except that any business owned in whole or in part by the Federal Government is not eligible.
