Download as PDF 40276 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 135 / Monday, July 14, 2008 / Proposed Rules and licensees—that may be affected by the proposals, if adopted, in the Second FNPRM. 10. Public Safety Radio Licensees. Public safety licensees who operate 800 MHz systems in the Puerto Rico region would be required to relocate their station facilities according to the band plan proposed in the Second FNPRM. As indicated above, all governmental entities with populations of less than 50,000 fall within the definition of a small entity. 11. Business, I/LT, and SMR licensees. Business and Industrial Land Transportation (B/ILT) and Special Mobile Radio (SMR) licensees who operate 800 MHz systems in the Puerto Rico region would be required to relocate their station facilities according to the band plans proposed in the Second FNPRM. Neither the Commission nor the SBA has developed a definition of small businesses directed specifically toward these licensees. 12. ESMR Licensees. Enhanced Specialized Mobile Radio (ESMR) licensees and ESMR-eligible licensees who operate 800 MHz systems in the Puerto Rico region would be required to relocate their station facilities according to the band plans proposed in the Second FNPRM. Neither the Commission nor the SBA has developed a definition of small businesses directed specifically toward these licensees. rfrederick on PROD1PC67 with PROPOSALS D. Description of Projected Reporting, Recordkeeping, and Other Compliance Requirements 13. The Second FNPRM does not propose a rule that will entail additional reporting, recordkeeping, and/or thirdparty consultation or other compliance efforts. E. Steps Taken To Minimize Significant Economic Impact on Small Entities, and Significant Alternatives Considered 14. The RFA requires an agency to describe any significant, specifically small business alternatives that it has considered in reaching its proposed approach, which may include the following four alternatives (among others): ‘‘(1) The establishment of differing compliance or reporting requirements or timetables that take into account the resources available to small entities; (2) the clarification, consolidation, or simplification of compliance or reporting requirements under the rule for small entities; (3) the use of performance, rather than design, standards; and (4) exemption from coverage of the rule, or any part thereof, for small entities.’’ 15. The Puerto Rico market presents a unique situation that is distinct from VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:45 Jul 11, 2008 Jkt 214001 other markets. Sprint holds considerably less spectrum in Puerto Rico than it does elsewhere, and there are several other licensees who have acquired significant EA license holdings in Puerto Rico at auction and seek to operate as ESMRs. In addition, Puerto Rico has numerous site-based incumbents that will need to be relocated to the non-ESMR block. Thus, an alternative band plan is appropriate here. Accordingly the Commission provided the 800 MHz Transition Administrator (TA) with specific criteria and directed the TA to propose an alternative band plan, including, if necessary, a pro rata distribution of ESMR spectrum. At the time the Commission adopted these criteria, it had no basis for anticipating that any future decision by the TA in either proposing an alternative band plan or proposing a pro rata distribution would adversely affect any small entities. The TA proposes to apportion the Puerto Rico Band Plan consistent with these criteria. 16. To the extent that adoption of the TA’s Puerto Rico Band Plan may impose an economic impact in Puerto Rico on relocating non-ESMR and site-based incumbents, including public safety, to the non-ESMR band, that impact will be borne by Sprint because Sprint must pay the costs of 800 MHz band reconfiguration. Under Small Business Administration criteria, Sprint is a large entity. Further, there is no evidence in the record that non-Sprint licensees in the Puerto Rico market, including small wireless cellular, public safety, governmental entities or other wireless entities, would suffer adverse economic consequences. Indeed, these licensees are likely to enjoy several benefits, including improved interference protection as a result of band reconfiguration. 17. Additionally, while apportioning spectrum in the ESMR band may result in a reduction in ESMR spectrum availability, these reductions can be accommodated when a licensee employs more spectrum-efficient technologies and higher-quality digital technologies. ESMR and ESMR-eligible licensees are also likely to receive a number of benefits as a result of modifying the Puerto Rico Band Plan. For example, as a consequence of 800 MHz band reconfiguration ESMReligible licensees will be able to relocate EA and site-based facilities to the ESMR band that are currently located below the ESMR band. If these facilities are relocated and integrated into an ESMR band system, these licensees will be relieved of the cost and limitations associated with abating interference PO 00000 Frm 00083 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 created by ESMR stations being interleaved with high-site systems used by public safety and others in the nonESMR portion of the band, while taking advantage of spectrally efficient technologies. F. Federal Rules That May Duplicate, Overlap, or Conflict With the Proposed Rules 18. None. Ordering Clauses 19. Accordingly, it is ordered, pursuant to sections 4(i) and 332 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 154(i), 332, that the Second Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking is adopted. 20. It is further ordered that the Commission’s Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau, Reference Information Center, shall send a copy of the Second Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, including the Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis, to the Chief Counsel for Advocacy of the Small Business Administration. 21. It is further ordered that pursuant to applicable procedures set forth in sections 1.415 and 1.419 of the Commission’s rules, 47 CFR 1.415, 1.419, interested parties may file comments on or before August 8, 2008, and reply comments on or before August 22, 2008.

Ms. Mazyck’s telephone number is (202) 366–0846. Her fax number is (202) 493– 2990. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NHTSA administers a program for reducing motor vehicle theft. The central feature of this program is the Federal Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard, 49 CFR part 541. The standard specifies performance requirements for inscribing or affixing vehicle identification numbers (VINs) onto certain major original equipment and replacement parts of high-theft lines of passenger motor vehicles. The agency is required by 49 U.S.C. 33104(b)(4) to periodically obtain, from the most reliable source, accurate and timely theft data, and publish the data for review and comment. To fulfill the § 33104(b)(4) mandate, this document reports the preliminary theft data for CY 2006, the most recent calendar year for which data are available. In calculating the 2006 theft rates, NHTSA followed the same procedures it used in calculating the MY 2005 theft rates. (For 2005 theft data calculations, see 73 FR 13150, March 12, 2008). As in all previous reports, NHTSA’s data were based on information provided to the agency by the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The NCIC is a governmental system that receives vehicle theft information from nearly 23,000 criminal justice agencies and other law enforcement authorities throughout the United States. The NCIC data also include reported thefts of self- PO 00000 Frm 00084 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 40277 insured and uninsured vehicles, not all of which are reported to other data sources. The 2006 theft rate for each vehicle line was calculated by dividing the number of reported thefts of MY 2006 vehicles of that line stolen during calendar year 2006, by the total number of vehicles in that line manufactured for MY 2006, as reported by manufacturers to the Environmental Protection Agency. The preliminary 2006 theft data show an increase in the vehicle theft rate when compared to the theft rate experienced in CY/MY 2005. The preliminary theft rate for MY 2006 passenger vehicles stolen in calendar year 2006 increased to 2.08 thefts per thousand vehicles produced, an increase of 12.4 percent from the rate of 1.85 thefts per thousand vehicles experienced by MY 2005 vehicles in CY 2005. For MY 2006 vehicles, out of a total of 217 vehicle lines, 19 lines had a theft rate higher than 3.5826 per thousand vehicles, the established median theft rate for MYs 1990/1991 (See 59 FR 12400, March 16, 1994). Of the 19 vehicle lines with a theft rate higher than 3.5826, 18 are passenger car lines, one is a multipurpose passenger vehicle line, and none are light-duty truck lines. Although this publication reflects preliminary data which may change, the agency is aware that the data does reflect a possible second year with an increase in the overall theft rate (MY/CY 2005 & 2006). In the final notice for CY/ MY 2005 the agency indicated that since there was only a slight elevation, the agency was not concerned but would monitor this to see if it was a beginning of a trend. If the final data for CY/MY 2006 does show a second year of increase, especially of the magnitude indicated by this preliminary data, the agency will explore what could be causing these elevations in the theft rate. The agency welcomes any comments on this possible new trend. E:\FR\FM\14JYP1.SGM 14JYP1 40278 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 135 / Monday, July 14, 2008 / Proposed Rules In Table I, NHTSA has tentatively ranked each of the MY 2006 vehicle lines in descending order of theft rate. Public comment is sought on the accuracy of the data, including the data for the production volumes of individual vehicle lines. Comments must not exceed 15 pages in length (49 CFR part 553.21). Attachments may be appended to these submissions without regard to the 15 page limit. This limitation is intended to encourage commenters to detail their primary arguments in a concise fashion. If a commenter wishes to submit certain information under a claim of confidentiality, three copies of the complete submission, including purportedly confidential business information, should be submitted to the Chief Counsel, NHTSA, at the street address given above, and two copies from which the purportedly confidential information has been deleted should be submitted to Dockets. A request for confidentiality should be accompanied by a cover letter setting forth the information specified in the agency’s confidential business information regulation. 49 CFR part 512. All comments received before the close of business on the comment closing date indicated above for this document will be considered, and will be available for examination in the docket at the above address both before and after that date. To the extent possible, comments filed after the closing date will also be considered. Comments on this document will be available for inspection in the docket. NHTSA will continue to file relevant information as it becomes available for inspection in the docket after the closing date, and it is recommended that interested persons continue to examine the docket for new material. Those persons desiring to be notified upon receipt of their comments in the rules docket should enclose a selfaddressed, stamped postcard in the envelope with their comments. Upon receiving the comments, the docket supervisor will return the postcard by mail.

SUMMARY: This document requests comments on data about passenger motor 
vehicle thefts that occurred in calendar year (CY) 2006 including theft 
rates for existing passenger motor vehicle lines manufactured in model 
year (MY) 2006. The preliminary theft

[[Page 40277]]

data indicate that the vehicle theft rate for CY/MY 2006 vehicles (2.08 
thefts per thousand vehicles) increased by 12.4 percent from the theft 
rate for CY/MY 2005 vehicles (1.85 thefts per thousand vehicles).

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Deborah Mazyck, Office of 
International Policy, Fuel Economy and Consumer Programs, NHTSA, 1200 
New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC 20590. Ms. Mazyck's telephone 
number is (202) 366-0846. Her fax number is (202) 493-2990.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NHTSA administers a program for reducing 
motor vehicle theft. The central feature of this program is the Federal 
Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard, 49 CFR part 541. The standard 
specifies performance requirements for inscribing or affixing vehicle 
identification numbers (VINs) onto certain major original equipment and 
replacement parts of high-theft lines of passenger motor vehicles.
    The agency is required by 49 U.S.C. 33104(b)(4) to periodically 
obtain, from the most reliable source, accurate and timely theft data, 
and publish the data for review and comment. To fulfill the Sec.  
33104(b)(4) mandate, this document reports the preliminary theft data 
for CY 2006, the most recent calendar year for which data are 
available.
    In calculating the 2006 theft rates, NHTSA followed the same 
procedures it used in calculating the MY 2005 theft rates. (For 2005 
theft data calculations, see 73 FR 13150, March 12, 2008). As in all 
previous reports, NHTSA's data were based on information provided to 
the agency by the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) of the 
Federal Bureau of Investigation. The NCIC is a governmental system that 
receives vehicle theft information from nearly 23,000 criminal justice 
agencies and other law enforcement authorities throughout the United 
States. The NCIC data also include reported thefts of self-insured and 
uninsured vehicles, not all of which are reported to other data 
sources. The 2006 theft rate for each vehicle line was calculated by 
dividing the number of reported thefts of MY 2006 vehicles of that line 
stolen during calendar year 2006, by the total number of vehicles in 
that line manufactured for MY 2006, as reported by manufacturers to the 
Environmental Protection Agency.
    The preliminary 2006 theft data show an increase in the vehicle 
theft rate when compared to the theft rate experienced in CY/MY 2005. 
The preliminary theft rate for MY 2006 passenger vehicles stolen in 
calendar year 2006 increased to 2.08 thefts per thousand vehicles 
produced, an increase of 12.4 percent from the rate of 1.85 thefts per 
thousand vehicles experienced by MY 2005 vehicles in CY 2005. For MY 
2006 vehicles, out of a total of 217 vehicle lines, 19 lines had a 
theft rate higher than 3.5826 per thousand vehicles, the established 
median theft rate for MYs 1990/1991 (See 59 FR 12400, March 16, 1994). 
Of the 19 vehicle lines with a theft rate higher than 3.5826, 18 are 
passenger car lines, one is a multipurpose passenger vehicle line, and 
none are light-duty truck lines.
    Although this publication reflects preliminary data which may 
change, the agency is aware that the data does reflect a possible 
second year with an increase in the overall theft rate (MY/CY 2005 & 
2006). In the final notice for CY/MY 2005 the agency indicated that 
since there was only a slight elevation, the agency was not concerned 
but would monitor this to see if it was a beginning of a trend. If the 
final data for CY/MY 2006 does show a second year of increase, 
especially of the magnitude indicated by this preliminary data, the 
agency will explore what could be causing these elevations in the theft 
rate. The agency welcomes any comments on this possible new trend.

[[Page 40278]]

[GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TP14JY08.021

    In Table I, NHTSA has tentatively ranked each of the MY 2006 
vehicle lines in descending order of theft rate. Public comment is 
sought on the accuracy of the data, including the data for the 
production volumes of individual vehicle lines.
    Comments must not exceed 15 pages in length (49 CFR part 553.21). 
Attachments may be appended to these submissions without regard to the 
15 page limit. This limitation is intended to encourage commenters to 
detail their primary arguments in a concise fashion.
    If a commenter wishes to submit certain information under a claim 
of confidentiality, three copies of the complete submission, including 
purportedly confidential business information, should be submitted to 
the Chief Counsel, NHTSA, at the street address given above, and two 
copies from which the purportedly confidential information has been 
deleted should be submitted to Dockets. A request for confidentiality 
should be accompanied by a cover letter setting forth the information 
specified in the agency's confidential business information regulation. 
49 CFR part 512.
    All comments received before the close of business on the comment 
closing date indicated above for this document will be considered, and 
will be available for examination in the docket at the above address 
both before and after that date. To the extent possible, comments filed 
after the closing date will also be considered. Comments on this 
document will be available for inspection in the docket. NHTSA will 
continue to file relevant information as it becomes available for 
inspection in the docket after the closing date, and it is recommended 
that interested persons continue to examine the docket for new 
material.
    Those persons desiring to be notified upon receipt of their 
comments in the rules docket should enclose a self-addressed, stamped 
postcard in the envelope with their comments. Upon receiving the 
comments, the docket supervisor will return the postcard by mail.
    Privacy Act: Anyone is able to search the electronic form of all 
comments received into any of our dockets by the name of the individual 
submitting the comment (or signing the comment, if submitted on behalf 
of an association, business, labor union, etc.). You may review DOT's 
complete Privacy Act Statement in the Federal Register published on
