BNSF Railway Company-Trackage Rights Exemption-Union Pacific Railroad Company, 10755 [06-1833]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 41 / Thursday, March 2, 2006 / Notices safety programs conducted at the State and local level. The revised guidelines will emphasize areas of national concern and highlight effective countermeasures. The February 9, 2006 notice announced a comment due date of March 13, 2006. In a letter dated February 22, 2006, the Motorcycle Riders Foundation asked NHTSA for an extension of this due date. Although the letter did not indicate a specific length for the requested extension, the explanation for the requested extension was that ‘‘the motorcycling community should have more than thirty three calendar days to dissect and address all of the eleven recommendations put forth in the Federal Register on February 9th, 2006.’’ We interpret the reference to the ‘‘eleven recommendations’’ to apply to the eleven (11) subparts of the proposed revised motorcycle safety guideline. After considering the request for additional time to consider the proposed motorcycle safety guideline, NHTSA has decided that it is in the public interest to grant the request. In granting this request, the agency is mindful that early publication of the revised highway safety guidelines is important in light of the new motorcyclist safety grant program authorized in section 2010 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU), Pub. L. 109–59. Therefore, NHTSA extends until March 27, 2006 the closing date for submission of comments for all six (6) proposed highway safety guidelines published on February 9, 2006. To the extent possible, comments filed after this extended closing date will also be considered. However, the final guidelines may be published at any time after that date. The agency will continue to file relevant material in the docket as it becomes available after the closing date, and it is recommended that interested persons continue to examine the docket for new material. Issued on: February 27, 2006. Brian M. McLaughlin, Senior Associate Administrator for Traffic Injury Control. [FR Doc.
