Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) Implementation in the Maritime Sector; Hazardous Materials Endorsement for a Commercial Driver's License, 44653-44654 [E8-17557]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 148 / Thursday, July 31, 2008 / Rules and Regulations GST tax purposes generally permits the allocation of GST tax exemption, the making of various elections permitted for GST tax purposes, and the occurrence of a taxable distribution or termination with regard to a particular resulting share or trust, with no GST tax impact on any other trust or share resulting from that severance. The treatment of a single trust as separate trusts under this paragraph (a)(1), however, does not permit treatment of those portions as separate trusts for purposes of filing returns and payment of tax or for purposes of computing any other tax imposed under the Internal Revenue Code, if those portions are not treated as separate trusts under local law. Also, additions to, and distributions from, such trusts are allocated pro rata among the separate trusts, unless the governing instrument expressly provides otherwise. Each separate share and each trust resulting from a mandatory division or severance described in this paragraph will have the same inclusion ratio immediately after the severance as that of the original trust immediately before the division or severance. * * * * * (5) * * * yshivers on PROD1PC62 with RULES Example 8. Subsequent mandatory division into separate trusts. T creates an irrevocable trust that provides the trustee with the discretionary power to distribute income or corpus to T’s children and grandchildren. The trust provides that, when T’s youngest child reaches age 21, the trust will be divided into separate shares, one share for each child of T. The income from a respective child’s share will be paid to the child during the child’s life, with the remainder passing on the child’s death to such child’s children (grandchildren of T). The separate shares that come into existence when the youngest child reaches age 21 will be recognized as of that date as separate trusts for purposes of Chapter 13. The inclusion ratio of the separate trusts will be identical to the inclusion ratio of the trust before the severance. Any allocation of GST tax exemption to the trust after T’s youngest child reaches age 21 may be made to any one or more of the separate shares. The result would be the same if the trust instrument provided that the trust was to be divided into separate trusts when T’s youngest child reached age 21, provided that the severance and funding of the separate trusts meets the requirements of this section. * * * * * (d) Effective date.

Regulatory History On May 22, 2006, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through the United States Coast Guard (Coast Guard) and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) published a joint notice of proposed rulemaking entitled ‘‘Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) Implementation in the Maritime Sector; Hazardous Materials Endorsement for a Commercial Driver’s License’’ in the Federal Register (71 FR 29396). This was followed by a 45-day comment period and four public meetings. The Coast Guard and TSA issued a joint final rule, under the same title, on January 25, 2007 (72 FR 3492) (hereinafter referred to as the original TWIC final rule). The preamble to that final rule contains a discussion of all the comments received on the NPRM, as well as a discussion of the provisions found in the original TWIC final rule, which became effective on March 26, 2007. On May 7, 2008, the Coast Guard and TSA issued a final rule to realign the compliance date for implementation of the Transportation Worker Identification Credential. 73 FR 25562. The date by which mariners need to obtain a TWIC, and by which owners and operators of vessels, facilities, and outer continental shelf facilities, who have not otherwise been required to implement access control procedures utilizing TWIC, must implement those procedures, is now April 15, 2009 instead of September 25, 2008. Owners and operators of facilities that must comply with 33 CFR part 105 will still be subject to earlier, rolling compliance dates, as set forth in 33 CFR 105.115(e). The Coast Guard will continue to announce rolling compliance dates, as provided in 33 CFR 105.115(e), at least 90 days in advance via notices published in the Federal Register. The final compliance date for all COTP Zones will not be later than April 15, 2009. II. Notice of Facility Compliance Date— COTP Zones Charleston, Long Island Sound, Jacksonville, and Savannah Title 33 CFR 105.115(e) currently states that ‘‘[f]acility owners and operators must be operating in accordance with the TWIC provisions in this part by the date set by the Coast Guard in a Notice to be published in the E:\FR\FM\31JYR1.SGM 31JYR1 44654 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 148 / Thursday, July 31, 2008 / Rules and Regulations Federal Register.’’ Through this Notice, the Coast Guard informs the owners and operators of facilities subject to 33 CFR 105.115(e) located within COTP Zones Charleston, Long Island Sound, Jacksonville, and Savannah that the deadline for their compliance with Coast Guard and TSA TWIC requirements is December 1, 2008. The TSA and Coast Guard have determined that this date provides sufficient time for the estimated population required to obtain TWICs for these COTP Zones to enroll and for TSA to complete the necessary security threat assessments for those enrollment applications. We strongly encourage persons requiring unescorted access to facilities regulated by 33 CFR part 105 and located in one of these COTP Zones to enroll for their TWIC as soon as possible, if they haven’t already. Additionally, we note that the TWIC Final Rule advises owners and operators of MTSA regulated facilities of their responsibility to notify employees of the TWIC requirements. Specifically, 33 CFR 105.200(b)(14) requires owners or operators of MTSA regulated facilities to ‘‘[i]nform facility personnel of their responsibility to apply for and maintain a TWIC, including the deadlines and methods for such applications.’’ Information on enrollment procedures, as well as a link to the pre-enrollment Web site (which will also enable an applicant to make an appointment for enrollment), may be found at https:// twicprogram.tsa.dhs.gov/ TWICWebApp/.

EPA proposed to find that the transit measures in the revised transit system improvements regulation remain directionally sound and that all proposed substitution projects identified in the Regulation will collectively contribute to achieving the national ambient air quality standard for ozone and maintaining the carbon monoxide standard, thereby satisfying requirements set forth in section 110(l) of the Clean Air Act (CAA or Act). On December 13, 2006, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MA DEP) submitted its formal SIP revision amending its Transit System Improvements Regulation. The revision consists of MA DEP’s final amendments to 310 CMR 7.36, ‘‘Transit System Improvements,’’ effective December 1, 2006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Regulatory History

    On May 22, 2006, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through 
the United States Coast Guard (Coast Guard) and the Transportation 
Security Administration (TSA) published a joint notice of proposed 
rulemaking entitled ``Transportation Worker Identification Credential 
(TWIC) Implementation in the Maritime Sector; Hazardous Materials 
Endorsement for a Commercial Driver's License'' in the Federal Register 
(71 FR 29396). This was followed by a 45-day comment period and four 
public meetings. The Coast Guard and TSA issued a joint final rule, 
under the same title, on January 25, 2007 (72 FR 3492) (hereinafter 
referred to as the original TWIC final rule). The preamble to that 
final rule contains a discussion of all the comments received on the 
NPRM, as well as a discussion of the provisions found in the original 
TWIC final rule, which became effective on March 26, 2007.
    On May 7, 2008, the Coast Guard and TSA issued a final rule to 
realign the compliance date for implementation of the Transportation 
Worker Identification Credential. 73 FR 25562. The date by which 
mariners need to obtain a TWIC, and by which owners and operators of 
vessels, facilities, and outer continental shelf facilities, who have 
not otherwise been required to implement access control procedures 
utilizing TWIC, must implement those procedures, is now April 15, 2009 
instead of September 25, 2008. Owners and operators of facilities that 
must comply with 33 CFR part 105 will still be subject to earlier, 
rolling compliance dates, as set forth in 33 CFR 105.115(e).
    The Coast Guard will continue to announce rolling compliance dates, 
as provided in 33 CFR 105.115(e), at least 90 days in advance via 
notices published in the Federal Register. The final compliance date 
for all COTP Zones will not be later than April 15, 2009.

II. Notice of Facility Compliance Date--COTP Zones Charleston, Long 
Island Sound, Jacksonville, and Savannah

    Title 33 CFR 105.115(e) currently states that ``[f]acility owners 
and operators must be operating in accordance with the TWIC provisions 
in this part by the date set by the Coast Guard in a Notice to be

owners and operators of facilities subject to 33 CFR 105.115(e) located 
within COTP Zones Charleston, Long Island Sound, Jacksonville, and 
Savannah that the deadline for their compliance with Coast Guard and 
TSA TWIC requirements is December 1, 2008.
    The TSA and Coast Guard have determined that this date provides 
sufficient time for the estimated population required to obtain TWICs 
for these COTP Zones to enroll and for TSA to complete the necessary 
security threat assessments for those enrollment applications. We 
strongly encourage persons requiring unescorted access to facilities 
regulated by 33 CFR part 105 and located in one of these COTP Zones to 
enroll for their TWIC as soon as possible, if they haven't already. 
Additionally, we note that the TWIC Final Rule advises owners and 
operators of MTSA regulated facilities of their responsibility to
