DFAS–CL(CGA) will provide forms to be used by trustees for the required accounting report. The report will account for all funds received from the Navy or Marine Corps on behalf of the member. When payments to a trustee are terminated for any reason, the trustee will submit a final accounting report to DFAS– CL(CGA). Upon approval of the final accounting report, the trustee and the surety will be discharged from liability. (b) Failure to submit a report and default. If an accounting report is not received by the date designated by DFAS–CL(CGA) or an accounting is unsatisfactory, DFAS–CL(CGA) will notify the trustee in writing. If a satisfactory accounting is not received by DFAS–CL(CGA) within the time specified, the trustee will be declared in default of the trustee agreement and will be liable for all unaccounted trustee funds. If a trustee is declared in default of the trustee agreement, DFAS– CL(CGA) will terminate payments to the trustee and, if necessary, a successor trustee may be appointed. The trustee and surety will be notified in writing by DFAS–CL(CGA) of the declaration of default. The notification will state the reasons for default, the amount of indebtedness to the Government, and will demand payment for the full amount of indebtedness. If payment in full is not received by DFAS–CL(CGA) within an appropriate period of time from notification of default, the account may be forwarded to the Department of Justice for recovery of funds through appropriate civil action.

Other passenger vessels subject to the guidelines will be addressed in a similar meeting that has not yet been scheduled.

In addition to receiving comment, the Board used the provisions in the revised draft to conduct 10 passenger vessel case studies to help determine the cost impacts of the provisions on newly constructed passenger vessels. From comments received on the 2006 draft and draft case study results, changes were made to the 2006 draft (and the case studies were revised to reflect current provisions). To complete development of a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) regarding passenger vessel accessibility guidelines, the Board needs to complete its regulatory assessment and regulatory flexibility act analysis. Two information meetings are planned to assist the Board in PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 completing these activities. The meetings will focus on possible approaches and methodologies for the regulatory assessment and regulatory flexibility act analysis, the baselines for determining costs, the identification of major and minor cost impacts, estimated unit costs (where feasible), development of aggregate annual industry costs, and benefits generated by the guidelines. The meeting on August 11, 2008, will focus on large cruise ships. Other passenger vessels subject to the guidelines will be addressed in a similar meeting that has not yet been scheduled but will be announced in the Federal Register. To support the August 11 meeting and future second meeting, the Board has placed in its docket and on its Web site (http://www.accessboard.gov/pvaac/index.htm) a 2008 draft of the guidelines, current drafts of the 10 vessel case studies, a preliminary agenda for the August 11 meeting, and other related material. The August 11 meeting is open to the public. Interested persons are requested to register by e-mail at pvag@accessboard.gov by July 31, 2008, for space planning purposes. The Board is not accepting comment on the content of the 2008 draft, and is only making it available to support the meetings. When the NPRM is published, the Board will then solicit comments on the guidelines at that time. However, comments which identify provisions that trigger major costs and include the applicable costs will be accepted. The meeting site is accessible to individuals with disabilities. Sign language interpreters, an assistive listening system, and computer assisted real-time transcription (CART) will be provided. Persons attending the meeting are requested to refrain from using perfume, cologne, and other fragrances for the comfort of other participants. Lawrence W. Roffee, Executive Director. [FR Doc.

development of aggregate annual industry costs, and benefits generated

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On July 7, 2006, the Architectural and 
Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (Access Board) made available 
for public comment a revised draft of the accessibility guidelines for 
passenger vessels (70 FR 38563; July 7, 2006). In addition to receiving 
comment, the Board used the provisions in the revised draft to conduct 
10 passenger vessel case studies to help determine the cost impacts of 
the provisions on newly constructed passenger vessels. From comments 
received on the 2006 draft and draft case study results, changes were 
made to the 2006 draft (and the case studies were revised to reflect 
current provisions). To complete development of a notice of proposed 
rulemaking (NPRM) regarding passenger vessel accessibility guidelines, 
the Board needs to complete its regulatory assessment and regulatory 
flexibility act analysis.
    Two information meetings are planned to assist the Board in 
completing these activities. The meetings will focus on possible 
approaches and methodologies for the regulatory assessment and 
regulatory flexibility act analysis, the baselines for determining 
costs, the identification of major and minor cost impacts, estimated 
unit costs (where feasible), development of aggregate annual industry 
costs, and benefits generated by the guidelines.
    The meeting on August 11, 2008, will focus on large cruise ships. 
Other passenger vessels subject to the guidelines will be addressed in 
a similar meeting that has not yet been scheduled but will be announced 
in the Federal Register. To support the August 11 meeting and future 
second meeting, the Board has placed in its docket and on its Web site 
(http://www.access-board.gov/pvaac/index.htm) a 2008 draft of the 
guidelines, current drafts of the 10 vessel case studies, a preliminary 
agenda for the August 11 meeting, and other related material.
    The August 11 meeting is open to the public. Interested persons are 
requested to register by e-mail at pvag@access-board.gov by July 31, 
2008, for space planning purposes. The Board is not accepting comment 
on the content of the 2008 draft, and is only making it available to 
support the meetings. When the NPRM is published, the Board will then 
solicit comments on the guidelines at that time. However, comments 
which identify provisions that trigger major costs and include the 
applicable costs will be accepted.
    The meeting site is accessible to individuals with disabilities. 
Sign language interpreters, an assistive listening system, and computer 
assisted real-time transcription (CART) will be provided. Persons 
attending the meeting are requested to refrain from using perfume, 
cologne, and other fragrances for the comfort of other participants.
