Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 185 / Monday, September 26, 2005 / Notices to continue selection of cases for these tests beyond this date, we will publish another notice in the Federal Register. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Phil Landis, Office of Disability Determinations, Social Security Administration, 6401 Security Boulevard, Baltimore, Maryland 21235– 6401, 410–965–5388. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Current regulations at 20 CFR 404.906 and 416.1406 authorize us to test, individually, or in any combination, different modifications to the disability determination procedures. We have conducted several tests under the authority of these rules, including a prototype that incorporates a number of modifications to the disability determination procedures that the State agencies use. The prototype included three redesign features, and we previously extended the tests of two of those features: the use of a single decisionmaker, in which a disability examiner may make the initial disability determination in most cases without requiring the signature of a medical consultant; and elimination of the reconsideration level of review. We are now announcing a further extension of the testing of these two features. We also have conducted another test involving the use of a single decisionmaker who may make the initial disability determination in most cases without requiring the signature of a medical consultant. We are also extending the period during which we will select cases to be included in this test of the single decisionmaker feature. Extension of Testing of Some Disability Redesign Features On August 30, 1999, we published in the Federal Register a notice announcing a prototype that would test a new disability claims process in 10 States, also called the prototype process (64 FR 47218). On December 23, 1999, we published a notice in the Federal Register (65 FR 72134) extending the period during which we would select cases to be included in a separate test of the single decisionmaker feature. In these notices, we stated that selection of cases was expected to be concluded on or about December 31, 2001. We also stated that, if we decided to continue the tests beyond that date, we would publish another notice in the Federal Register. We subsequently published notices in the Federal Register extending selection of cases for these tests. Most recently, on December 10, 2003, we published a notice extending selection of cases for the tests until no later than September 30, 2005 (68 FR VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:49 Sep 23, 2005 Jkt 205001 68963). We also stated that, if we decided to continue selection of cases for these tests beyond that date, we would publish another notice in the Federal Register. We have decided to extend selection of cases for two features of the prototype process (single decisionmaker and elimination of the reconsideration step), and the separate test of single decisionmaker beyond September 30, 2005. We expect that our selection of cases for these tests will end on or before September 30, 2006. This extension also applies to the locations in the State of New York that we added to the prototype test in a notice published in the Federal Register on December 26, 2000 (65 FR 81553). Dated: September 16, 2005. Martin H. Gerry, Deputy Commissioner for Disability and Income Security Programs.

[FR Doc. 05–19231 Filed 9–22–05; 3:29 pm] BILLING CODE 8120–08–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Railroad Administration Petition for Waiver of Compliance In accordance with part 211 of title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), notice is hereby given that the Federal PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Railroad Administration (FRA) received a request for a waiver of compliance with certain requirements of its safety standards. The individual petition is described below, including the party seeking relief, the regulatory provisions involved, the nature of the relief being requested, and the petitioner’s arguments in favor of relief. The Rarus Railway Company [Waiver Petition Docket Number FRA–2005– 22131] The Rarus Railway Company (RAR), seeks a waiver of compliance from certain provisions of the Safety Glazing Standards, 49 CFR 223, that requires certified glazing for two passenger cars, RARW 802 and RARW 805. The RAR is located in Anaconda, Montana. The RAR states they operate as a seasonal excursion train and will not operate as a commuter railroad. The cars will operate in a rural area over approximately 26 miles of track at a speed not exceeding 25 miles per hour. The RAR states that the cost of retrofitting a total of 58 windows for each car to accept FRA safety glazing will be cost prohibitive with consideration given to the type of operation the RAR performs. Interested parties are invited to participate in these proceedings by submitting written views, data, or comments. FRA does not anticipate scheduling a public hearing in connection with these proceedings since the facts do not appear to warrant a hearing. If any interested party desires an opportunity for oral comment, they should notify FRA, in writing, before the end of the comment period and specify the basis for their request. All communications concerning these proceedings should identify the appropriate docket number (e.g., Waiver Petition Docket Number 2005–22131) and must be submitted to the Docket Clerk, DOT Docket Management Facility, Room PL–401 (Plaza Level), 400 7th Street, SW., Washington, DC 20590. Communications received within 45 days of the date of this notice will be considered by FRA before final action is taken. Comments received after that date will be considered as far as practicable. All written communications concerning these proceedings are available for examination during regular business hours (9 a.m.–5 p.m.) at the above facility. All documents in the public docket are also available for inspection and copying on the Internet at the docket facility’s Web site at http://dms.dot.gov.
