SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Change in Nomenclature

    The PHMSA changed the name of a decision we make granting a request 
for waiver of compliance from ``decision granting waiver'' to ``special 
permit'' to reflect that granting the request will not reduce safety. 
We commonly add safety conditions to decisions granting waivers to 
ensure that waiving compliance with an existing pipeline safety 
standard is consistent with pipeline safety. The change was simply a 
name change for a decision granting waiver under 49 U.S.C. 60118(c)(1).

Comments Invited on Requests for Waiver

    The PHMSA has filed in DOT's Docket Management System (DMS) 
requests for waiver we have received from pipeline operators seeking 
relief from compliance with certain pipeline safety regulations. Each 
request has been assigned a separate docket number in the DMS. We 
invite interested persons to participate by reviewing these requests 
and by submitting written comments, data or other views. Please include 
any comments on environmental impacts granting the requests may have.
    Before acting on any request, PHMSA will evaluate all comments 
received on or before the comment closing date. We will consider 
comments received after this date if it is possible to do so without 
incurring additional expense or delay. We may grant or deny these 
requests based on the comments we receive.
    The PHMSA has received the following requests for waivers of 
compliance with pipeline safety regulations.
