Project Background The FHWA, in cooperation with the Iowa Department of Transportation (Iowa DOT), the City of Council Bluffs, and Pottawattamie County, will be preparing an EIS for the proposed East Beltway. The proposed project includes roadway improvements between US 6/ 225th Street and IA 92/Orchard Road, and improvements on the connecting roadways of Steven Lane and Greenview Road. Council Bluffs and Pottawattamie County have developed a joint plan (‘‘Two Mile Limit Study’’) for development and infrastructure needs east of Council Bluffs to accommodate projected development growth in the metropolitan area. From the Two Mile Limit Study, the East Beltway was identified as an infrastructure need for the development area. The proposed East Beltway will provide a north/south route east of I–80 and provide access to existing and future development within the Little Pony Creek drainage basin and parts of unincorporated Pottawattamie VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:04 Nov 02, 2007 Jkt 214001 County. The proposed project would also provide system continuity for the Council Bluffs/Omaha area by providing a connection between US 6 and IA 92. The proposed East Beltway would relieve congestion on I–80 and the southeast I–29/I–80 systems interchange. Potential alternatives and combinations thereof will include but are not limited to: (1) Taking no action, i.e., the No-Build Alternative; (2) strategies to better manage transportation demand; (3) improving existing roadways, pedestrian walkways, and bikeways; and (4) constructing a new roadway connection. The build alternative will include consideration of various alignments and grades in order to minimize potential environmental impacts. Letters describing the proposed action and soliciting comments will be sent to appropriate Federal, State, and local agencies, and to private organizations and citizens who have previously expressed or are known to have interest in the proposed project. The EIS will be initiated with a scoping process. The scoping process will include a program of public outreach and agency coordination that will be conducted over the next several months in order to elicit input on the project purpose and need, potential alternatives, significant and insignificant issues, and collaborative methods for analyzing transportation alternatives and environmental impacts. As part of the scoping process, several public meetings will be held in Council Bluffs or unincorporated Pottawattamie County, to meet with federal, state, and local agencies, as well as private individuals and organizations concerned with the project. In addition, a public hearing will be held in connection with the circulation of the draft EIS (DEIS). Public notice will be given concerning the date and location of the public meeting(s) and public hearing. The information gained during the scoping process will be widely disseminated and used to guide the development of the EIS. All comments and input received during the scoping and subsequent steps of the EIS process will be considered and documented. Beginning with scoping, continuous and regularly public involvement and agency coordination will continue throughout the preparation of the EIS. To ensure that a full range of issues are addressed in relation to the proposed action and that all significant issues are identified, all interested parties are invited to submit comments and suggestions. Comments or questions PO 00000 Frm 00087 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 concerning the proposed action and the EIS should be directed to the FHWA or Iowa Department of Transportation at the address provided on page one in the section titled FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

Larry W. Minor, Associate Administrator for Policy and Program Development. [FR Doc. E7–21640 Filed 11–2–07; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–EX–P In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315, FMCSA requests public comment from all interested persons on the exemption petitions described in this notice. We will consider all comments received before the close of business on the closing date indicated earlier in the dates section of the Notice. FMCSA notes that Section 4129 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible and Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU) requires the Secretary to revise its diabetes exemption program established on September 3, 2003 (68 FR 52441).1 VerDate Aug<31>2005 The revision must provide for individual assessment of drivers with diabetes mellitus, and be consistent with the criteria described in section 4018 of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (49 U.S.C. 31305). Section 4129 requires: (1) The elimination of the requirement for three years of experience operating CMVs while being treated with insulin; and (2) the establishment of a specified minimum period of insulin use to demonstrate stable control of diabetes before being allowed to operate a CMV. In response to section 4129, FMCSA made immediate revisions to the diabetes exemption program established by the September 3, 2003 Notice. FMCSA discontinued use of the 3-year driving experience and fulfilled the requirements of section 4129 while continuing to ensure that operation of CMVs by drivers with ITDM will achieve the requisite level of safety required of all exemptions granted under 49 U.S.C. 31136(e). Section 4129(d) also directed FMCSA to ensure that drivers of CMVs with ITDM are not held to a higher standard than other drivers, with the exception of limited operating, monitoring and medical requirements that are deemed medically necessary. FMCSA concluded that all of the operating, monitoring and medical requirements set out in the September 3, 2003 Notice, except as modified, were in compliance with section 4129(d). Therefore, all of the requirements set out in the September 3, 2003 Notice, except as modified by the Notice in the Federal Register on November 8, 2005 (70 FR 67777), remain in effect.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Under 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315, FMCSA may grant an exemption 
for a 2-year period if it finds ``such exemption would likely achieve a 
level of safety that is equivalent to, or greater than, the level that 
would be achieved absent such exemption.'' The statutes also allow the 
Agency to renew exemptions at the end of the 2-year period. The 48 
individuals listed in this notice have recently requested an exemption 
from the diabetes prohibition in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(3), which applies to 
drivers of CMVs in interstate commerce. Accordingly, the Agency will 
evaluate the qualifications of each applicant to determine whether 
granting the exemption will achieve the required level of safety 
mandated by the statutes.

Request for Comments

    In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315, FMCSA requests 
public comment from all interested persons on the exemption petitions 
described in this notice. We will consider all comments received before 
the close of business on the closing date indicated earlier in the 
dates section of the Notice.
    FMCSA notes that Section 4129 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible 
and Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-
LU) requires the Secretary to revise its diabetes exemption program 
established on September 3, 2003 (68 FR 52441).\1\ The revision must 
provide for individual assessment of drivers with diabetes mellitus, 
and be consistent with the criteria described in section 4018 of the 
Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (49 U.S.C. 31305).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Section 4129(a) refers to the 2003 Notice as a ``final 
rule.'' However, the 2003 Notice did not issue a ``final rule'' but 
did establish the procedures and standards for issuing exemptions 
for drivers with ITDM.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Section 4129 requires: (1) The elimination of the requirement for 
three years of experience operating CMVs while being treated with 
insulin; and (2) the establishment of a specified minimum period of 
insulin use to demonstrate stable control of diabetes before being 
allowed to operate a CMV.
    In response to section 4129, FMCSA made immediate revisions to the 
diabetes exemption program established by the September 3, 2003 Notice. 
FMCSA discontinued use of the 3-year driving experience and fulfilled 
the requirements of section 4129 while continuing to ensure that 
operation of CMVs by drivers with ITDM will achieve the requisite level 
of safety required of all exemptions granted under 49 U.S.C. 31136(e).
    Section 4129(d) also directed FMCSA to ensure that drivers of CMVs 
with ITDM are not held to a higher standard than other drivers, with 
the exception of limited operating, monitoring and medical requirements 
that are deemed medically necessary. FMCSA concluded that all of the 
operating, monitoring and medical requirements set out in the September 
3, 2003 Notice, except as modified, were in compliance with section 
4129(d). Therefore, all of the requirements set out in the September 3, 
2003 Notice, except as modified by the Notice in the Federal Register 
on November 8, 2005 (70 FR 67777), remain in effect.

    Dated: October 26, 2007.
