In July 2004, the Access Board published revised accessibility guidelines for facilities covered by the ADA and ABA. 69 FR 44084 (July 23, 2004). The guidelines update accessibility requirements for a wide range of facilities in the public and private sectors. The ADA and ABA Accessibility Guidelines contain ADA scoping (Chapters 1 and 2), ABA scoping (Chapters F1 and F2) and common technical provisions (Chapters 3 through 10) and for the first time contain technical and scoping provisions for both transient lodging and residential dwelling units. The ADA and ABA Accessibility Guidelines did not anticipate the challenges associated with providing accessible and usable dwelling units which will meet structural and transportation criteria permitting them to be transported across roadways and to be installed in yards or on group trailer sites for emergency use. Therefore, the Access Board wishes to revisit the scoping provisions and technical criteria for residential dwelling units in its guidelines and proposes to establish a Federal advisory committee to develop a proposed rule on this subject. The following interest groups are likely to be affected by accessibility guidelines for emergency transportable housing: • Federal agencies; • Organizations representing the needs of individuals with disabilities; • Trade associations; • Manufacturers and designers of emergency transportable housing; • State and local governments; and • voluntary codes and standards groups. The Board proposes to appoint the following organizations to represent the interests identified above: • Advocacy Center. • Coalition for Citizens with Disabilities. • Department of Housing and Urban Development. • Department of Justice. • Federal Emergency Management Agency. • Manufactured Housing Institute. • National Council on Independent Living. • National Fire Protection Association. • Recreation Park Trailer Industry Association. • Recreation Vehicle Industry Association. • United Spinal Association. VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:11 Jun 22, 2007 Jkt 211001 Comments are invited on the proposal to establish the advisory committee and the proposed membership. Organizations that will be affected by the accessibility guidelines for emergency transportable housing and who believe that their interests will not be adequately represented by the above organizations may apply for membership on the committee. Applications should include the following information: (1) The name of the organization and the interest that the organization proposes to represent; (2) the reasons why the organizations specified above do not adequately represent the interests that the organization proposes to represent; (3) evidence that the person submitting the application is authorized to represent the organization; and (4) a written commitment that the organization would participate on the committee in good faith. There is no specific application form. See ADDRESSES, above, for information on where and how to submit applications. To be effective, the size of the committee will be limited. Each organization affected by accessibility guidelines for emergency transportable housing need not have its own representative on the advisory committee. Rather, interests must be adequately represented and the membership must be fairly balanced. After reviewing the comments received in response to this notice and any applications for membership, the Board will issue a notice in the Federal Register announcing the establishment of the committee and the committee membership, unless it is determined based on comments that the establishment of the committee would be inappropriate. The first committee meeting is tentatively scheduled for September 24 and 25, 2007 at the Access Board offices in Washington, DC. The Board expects the committee to hold no more than three meetings and all meetings will be in the Washington, DC area. The meetings will be open to the public. Future committee meetings will be announced in the Federal Register. The Board will provide staff support to the committee. Members of the committee will not be compensated for their service.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (Access Board or Board) 1 is responsible for developing accessibility guidelines under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to ensure that newly constructed and altered passenger vessels covered by the law are readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities. In July 2006, the Access Board made available for public comment revised draft accessibility guidelines for passenger vessels which are permitted to carry more than 150 passengers or more than 49 overnight passengers. 71 FR 38563 (July 7, 2006). The revised draft guidelines will also apply to all ferries and certain tenders which carry 60 or more passengers. The revised draft guidelines are available on the Board’s Web site at http://www.accessboard.gov/pvaac/revised-draft.htm.

The Access Board consists of 25 members. Thirteen are appointed by the President from among the public, a majority of whom are required to be individuals with disabilities. The other twelve are heads of the following Federal agencies or their designees whose positions are Executive Level IV or above: The Departments of Health and Human Services, Education, Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, Labor, Interior, Defense, Justice, Veterans Affairs, and Commerce; General Services Administration; and United States Postal Services.

Commenters on the earlier draft primarily focused on the desire to allow portable systems with enhanced capabilities as an alternative to requiring permanently installed visible alarms in public areas and in guest rooms required to have communication features. Aside from problems in interfacing visible alarm systems with public address systems over which audible alarms operate, these commenters noted benefits in using portable systems. Many commenters argued that portable systems would allow technological advances to be more rapidly adopted which could provide better information during emergencies than permanently installed visible alarms. Portable systems would also allow more guest rooms to be covered than the two percent proposed in the 2004 draft. The same portable systems could also be used to communicate other information about shipboard activities more effectively to people who are deaf or hard of hearing. The Board is also aware of how employees on passenger vessels play an important role in providing directions and addressing passenger needs during emergencies. The Board pointed out that this heightened role is more analogous to how hospitals notify their patients and is different from most other facilities on land. As technology in this area is rapidly changing, the revised draft proposed that alarm systems comply with principles of best practice to alert passengers. Passenger vessel operators, individuals with disabilities, and organizations representing the various interest groups commented that the provision was vague and requested additional guidance. The Board agrees that additional guidance would be helpful and proposes to establish a Passenger Vessel Emergency Alarms Advisory Committee (Committee) to assist in this matter. The committee is expected to make recommendations to the Board on the following issues: (a) Whether current emergency alarm system designs and practices on PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 passenger vessels meet the access needs of individuals with hearing loss or deafness. (b) Alternative designs or technologies for emergency alarm systems appropriate for use on passenger vessels that meet the access needs of individuals with hearing loss or deafness. (c) The contents of proposed accessibility guidelines for passenger vessels related to emergency alarm systems. The following interest groups are likely to be affected by emergency alarm systems on passenger vessels: • Individuals with hearing loss or deafness and other individuals with disabilities concerned about emergency alarm systems; • Passenger vessel operators; • Manufacturers and designers of emergency alarm systems; and • Voluntary codes and standards groups which address emergency alarms. The Board proposes to appoint the following organizations to the committee to represent the interests identified above: • Community Emergency Preparedness Information Network. • Cruise Lines International Association. • Epilepsy Foundation. • Gallaudet University. • Hearing Access Program. • Hearing Loss Association of America. • National Association of the Deaf. • National Fire Protection Association. • Passenger Vessel Association. • Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On September 30, 2003, NIH Director Elias A. Zerhouni announced a series of farreaching strategic initiatives known collectively as the NIH Roadmap for Medical Research (NIH Roadmap). The NIH Roadmap is an innovative approach designed to transform the nation’s medical research capabilities and accelerate fundamental research discovery and translation of that knowledge into effective prevention strategies and new treatments. One of the NIH Roadmap initiatives encourages interdisciplinary research and team science and includes a recommendation to modify grant and research contract applications to allow proposing of more than one Principal Investigator when appropriate. This is congruent with the January 4, 2005, directive issued by the President’s Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) to all Federal research agency heads instructing the heads to accommodate the recognition of two or more Principal Investigators on research projects (grants and contacts). While this new OSTP policy does not prohibit the use of a single Principal Investigator when that is most appropriate for a particular research project, it simply permits the designation of more than one Principal Investigator when that more accurately reflects the management needs of a research project. For the purpose of implementing the NIH Roadmap initiatives, the NIH plans to modify research grant and contract applications to request information on more than one Principal Investigator, consistent with the new OSTP policy establishing the appropriateness of multiple Principal Investigators. Accordingly, we propose to revise the definition of the term Principal Investigator set forth in § 52.2 of the Grants for Research Projects regulations codified at 42 CFR Part 52, and the conditions for multiple or concurrent awards permitting the Secretary to evaluate, approve and make one or more awards pursuant to one or more applications. Specifically, in this Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) we propose to amend the existing regulations governing grants for research projects by revising the definition of Principal Investigator so that it does not limit the role of Principal Investigator to one single individual.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Architectural and Transportation 
Barriers Compliance Board (Access Board or Board) \1\ is responsible 
for developing accessibility guidelines under the Americans with 
Disabilities Act (ADA) to ensure that newly constructed and altered 
passenger vessels covered by the law are readily accessible to and 
usable by individuals with disabilities.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The Access Board is an independent Federal agency 
established by section 502 of the Rehabilitation Act (29 U.S.C. 792) 
whose primary mission is to promote accessibility for individuals 
with disabilities. The Access Board consists of 25 members. Thirteen 
are appointed by the President from among the public, a majority of 
whom are required to be individuals with disabilities. The other 
twelve are heads of the following Federal agencies or their 
designees whose positions are Executive Level IV or above: The 
Departments of Health and Human Services, Education, Transportation, 
Housing and Urban Development, Labor, Interior, Defense, Justice, 
Veterans Affairs, and Commerce; General Services Administration; and 
United States Postal Services.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In July 2006, the Access Board made available for public comment 
revised draft accessibility guidelines for passenger vessels which are 
permitted to carry more than 150 passengers or more than 49 overnight 
passengers. 71 FR 38563 (July 7, 2006). The revised draft guidelines 
will also apply to all ferries and certain tenders which carry 60 or 
more passengers. The revised draft guidelines are available on the 
Board's Web site at http://www.access-board.gov/pvaac/revised-
draft.htm.
    Section V215 of the revised draft guidelines requires that where 
emergency alarm systems are provided to alert passengers, the alarms in 
public areas and certain guest rooms must comply with ``principles of 
best practice.'' This is similar to a provision in the Americans with 
Disabilities Act and Architectural Barriers Act Accessibility 
Guidelines (section 702) that permits fire alarm systems in medical 
care facilities to be provided in accordance with ``industry 
practice.'' An earlier draft of the passenger vessel guidelines in 2004 
required emergency alarm systems (both audible and visible) to be 
permanently installed and to comply with NFPA 72. 69 FR 69244 (November 
26, 2004).
    Commenters on the earlier draft primarily focused on the desire to 
allow portable systems with enhanced capabilities as an alternative to 
requiring permanently installed visible alarms in public areas and in 
guest rooms required to have communication features. Aside from 
problems in interfacing visible alarm systems with public address 
systems over which audible alarms operate, these commenters noted 
benefits in using portable systems. Many commenters argued that 
portable systems would allow technological advances to be more rapidly 
adopted which could provide better information during emergencies than 
permanently installed visible alarms. Portable systems would also allow 
more guest rooms to be covered than the two percent proposed in the 
2004 draft. The same portable systems could also be used to communicate 
other information about shipboard activities more effectively to people 
who are deaf or hard of hearing. The Board is also aware of how 
employees on passenger vessels play an important role in providing 
directions and addressing passenger needs during emergencies. The Board 
pointed out that this heightened role is more analogous to how 
hospitals notify their patients and is different from most other 
facilities on land. As technology in this area is rapidly changing, the 
revised draft proposed that alarm systems comply with principles of 
best practice to alert passengers.
    Passenger vessel operators, individuals with disabilities, and 
organizations representing the various interest groups commented that 
the provision was vague and requested additional guidance. The Board 
agrees that additional guidance would be helpful and proposes to 
establish a Passenger Vessel Emergency Alarms Advisory Committee 
(Committee) to assist in this matter. The committee is expected to make 
recommendations to the Board on the following issues:
    (a) Whether current emergency alarm system designs and practices on 
passenger vessels meet the access needs of individuals with hearing 
loss or deafness.
    (b) Alternative designs or technologies for emergency alarm systems 
appropriate for use on passenger vessels that meet the access needs of 
individuals with hearing loss or deafness.
    (c) The contents of proposed accessibility guidelines for passenger 
vessels related to emergency alarm systems.
    The following interest groups are likely to be affected by 
emergency alarm systems on passenger vessels:
     Individuals with hearing loss or deafness and other 
individuals with disabilities concerned about emergency alarm systems;
     Passenger vessel operators;
     Manufacturers and designers of emergency alarm systems; 
and
     Voluntary codes and standards groups which address 
emergency alarms.
    The Board proposes to appoint the following organizations to the 
committee to represent the interests identified above:
     Community Emergency Preparedness Information Network.
     Cruise Lines International Association.
     Epilepsy Foundation.
     Gallaudet University.
     Hearing Access Program.
     Hearing Loss Association of America.
     National Association of the Deaf.
     National Fire Protection Association.
     Passenger Vessel Association.
     Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers.
    Comments are invited on the proposal to establish the advisory 
committee and the proposed membership. Organizations that are affected 
by emergency alarm systems on passenger vessels and believe that their 
interests will not be adequately represented by the above organizations 
may apply for membership on the committee. Applications should include 
the following information: (1) The name of the organization and the 
interest that the organization proposes to represent; (2) the reasons 
why the organizations specified above do not adequately represent the 
interest that the organization proposes to represent; (3) evidence that 
the person submitting the application is authorized to represent the 
organization; and (4) a written commitment that the organization would 
participate on the committee in good faith. There is no specific 
application form. See ADDRESSES, above,

[[Page 34655]]

for information on where and how to submit applications.
    To be effective, the size of the committee will be limited. Each 
organization affected by emergency alarm systems on passenger vessels 
need not have its own representative on the committee. Rather, each 
interest must be adequately represented and the membership must be 
fairly balanced.
    After reviewing the comments received in response to this notice 
and any applications for membership, the Board will issue a notice in 
the Federal Register announcing the establishment of the committee and 
the committee membership, unless it is determined based on comments 
that the establishment of the committee would be inappropriate. The 
first committee meeting is tentatively scheduled for August 15 and 16, 
2007 at the Access Board offices in Washington, DC.
    The Board expects the committee to hold no more than three meetings 
and all meetings will be in the Washington, DC area. The meetings will 
be open to the public. Future committee meetings will be announced in 
the Federal Register.
    The Board will provide staff support to the committee. Members of 
the committee will not be compensated for their service. The Board may 
pay travel expenses for a limited number of persons who would otherwise 
be unable to serve on the committee. Members will not be considered 
special government employees since they will serve as representatives 
of their organizations and will not be required to file confidential 
financial disclosure reports.
