Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plans Georgia: Enhanced Inspection and Maintenance Plan, 29101-29102 [E7-10059]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 100 / Thursday, May 24, 2007 / Proposed Rules Jean Arnao, Package Services, 202–268–7467; or Garry Rodriguez, Mailing Standards, 202–268–7281. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: On February 1, 2007, the Postal Service replaced Express Mail Drop Shipment and Priority Mail Drop Shipment with Express Mail Open and Distribute and Priority Mail Open and Distribute. The revised standards were designed to enhance the Postal Service’s ability to provide mailers with expedited service to destination delivery units and other mail processing facilities. In the revision, we provided mailers with an option to use the electronic option for Delivery Confirmation service to verify delivery. We offered this option to enable mailers to receive, at no additional cost, vital performance information that includes the date, ZIP Code, and time their Priority Mail Open and Distribute containers are delivered to their destination. The new requirement for electronic option Delivery Confirmation service on all Priority Mail Open and Distribute containers would allow the Postal Service to monitor these mailings by providing increased visibility to the individual mail containers, providing a measurement tool, and effectively communicating to mailers the delivery status of each container. Our proposal would require mailers to use the electronic option for Delivery Confirmation service for Priority Mail Open and Distribute containers in accordance with instructions in Publication 91, Confirmation Services Technical Guide. The required use of the electronic option for Delivery Confirmation service for Priority Mail Open and Distribute containers would be effective October 1, 2007. Although we are exempt from the notice and comment requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act [5 U.S.C. of 553(b), (c)] regarding proposed rulemaking by 39 U.S.C. 410(a), we invite public comments on the following proposed revisions to Mailing Standards of the United States Postal Service, Domestic Mail Manual (DMM), incorporated by reference in the Code of Federal Regulations. See 39 CFR 111.1. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: List of Subjects in 39 CFR Part 111 rmajette on PROD1PC67 with PROPOSALS Postal Service. Accordingly, 39 CFR part 111 is proposed to be amended as follows: PART 111—[AMENDED] 1. The authority citation for 39 CFR part 111 continues to read as follows: VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:42 May 23, 2007 Jkt 211001 29101 Authority: 5 U.S.C. 552(a); 39 U.S.C. 101, 401, 403, 404, 414, 416, 3001–3011, 3201– 3219, 3403–3406, 3621, 3626, 5001.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking. rmajette on PROD1PC67 with PROPOSALS AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users Act, which was signed into law on August 10, 2005, contains provisions which apply to state High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) facilities. Among other exceptions, SAFETEA–LU Section 1121, which is codified at 23 United States Code (U.S.C.) 166 now allows an exemption from the HOV facility occupancy requirement for vehicles certified as ‘‘low emission and energy-efficient.’’ As directed by the 2005 Transportation Act, EPA must issue regulations for certifying vehicles as ‘‘low emission and energy-efficient.’’ Specifically, this action proposes the requirements for ‘‘low emission and energy-efficient’’, including procedures for making fuel economy comparisons and the VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:42 May 23, 2007 Jkt 211001 requirements for labeling these vehicles. As the Department of Transportation (DOT) is responsible for the planning and implementation of HOV programs, any changes to HOV programs as a result of this action would also be implemented by DOT and enforced by the individual states that choose to adopt these requirements. As directed by the 2005 Transportation Act, the HOV multiple-occupancy exemption for low emission and energy-efficient vehicle expires September 30, 2009. DATES: Comments on this Notice of Proposed Rulemaking must be submitted on or before July 9, 2007. A public hearing will be held on June 8, 2007.
