SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has completed and is publishing its Record of Decision for improvements identified in the Master Plan for Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). FAA had published its Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for these Master Plan improvements and a Final General Conformity Determination on January 13, 2005. The Final EIS was prepared by the FAA pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and assessed the potential impact of the Master Plan’s four development alternatives (Alternatives A, B, C, and D), as well as the No Action Alternative where no improvements at the airport would be made. The FAA accepted comments on the Final EIS and these comments along with FAA responses are included in Appendix B to the ROD. In the Final EIS, the FAA identified Alternative D as the preferred alternative in meeting the purpose and need for improvements at the airport.

Application for an Exemption From the Design Requirements for Automatic On-Board Recording Devices (AOBRs) Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), DOT. ACTION: Notice of application for exemption; request for comments. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requests public comment on Xora, Inc.’s (Xora) application for an exemption from the requirement that AOBRs for monitoring drivers’ hours of service be integrally synchronized with the specific operations of the vehicle on which it is installed. Xora, a software development company, working in conjunction with Nextel Communications, a wireless communications service provider, has developed an hours of service (HOS) OBR software application for use with Global Positioning System (GPS)— enabled wireless telephones and its computer system to document drivers’ hours of service. Xora’s system performs all of the functions required of AOBRs currently allowed by FMCSA’s regulations with the exception of the requirement for integral synchronization with specific operations of the commercial motor vehicle on which it is installed. Xora believes the use of their hours-of-service monitoring system by motor carriers would achieve a level of safety equivalent to what would be provided by AOBRs which are integrally synchronized with specific operations of the CMV. DATES: Comments must be received on or before July 8, 2005.
