Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 79 / Wednesday, April 25, 2007 / Notices should be applied, if the resulting offense level is higher. The Commission concluded that operation of the cross reference would capture the harms associated with the aggravated forms of this offense referenced at 18 U.S.C. 1039(d) or (e). Finally, the amendment expands the scope of the existing threelevel enhancement in the guideline to include cases in which the defendant is convicted under 18 U.S.C. 1039(d) or (e). Thus, in cases where the cross reference does not apply, application of the enhancement will capture the increased harms associated with the aggravated offenses. [FR Doc.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On August 10, 2005, the President signed into law the Safe,

of the Federal Highway Administration, in consultation with the 
Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure of the House of 
Representatives and the Committee on Environment and Public Works of 
the Senate, shall appoint a Motorcyclist Advisory Council to coordinate 
with and advise the Administrator on infrastructure issues of concern 
to motorcyclists, including--
    (1) Barrier design;
    (2) Road design, construction, and maintenance practices; and
    (3) The architecture and implementation of intelligent 
transportation system technologies.''
    In addition, section 1914 specifies the membership of the council:
