ACTION: Final Natural Adjustment Policy for Urbanized Area Apportionments. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice announces the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) PO 00000 Frm 00130 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 67247 National Transit Database (NTD) policy on natural disaster adjustments for data used in urbanized area apportionments. On August 14, 2008, FTA proposed a new policy allowing transit systems suffering a marked decrease in transit service data due to a natural disaster to use their transit service data from a prior year in the urbanized area apportionments. FTA received three comments on this policy change and is now formally adopting the new policy. DATES: Effective Date: November 13, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For program issues, John D. Giorgis, Office of Budget and Policy, (202) 366–5430 (telephone); (202) 366–7989 (fax); or john.giorgis@dot.gov (e-mail). For legal issues, Richard Wong, Office of the Chief Counsel, (202) 366–0675 (telephone); (202) 366–3809 (fax); or richard.wong@dot.gov (e-mail). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The National Transit Database (NTD) was established by Congress ‘‘to help meet the needs of * * * the public for information on which to base public transportation service planning * * * ’’ (49 U.S.C. 5335). To support this goal, recipients or beneficiaries of Urbanized Area Formula Grants (Section 5307) or Other Than Urbanized Area Formula (Section 5311) Grants are required to report to the NTD. Some other providers of transit service in urbanized areas report voluntarily to the NTD for purposes of benefitting their local urbanized area in the urbanized area apportionments. Currently, over 650 transit agencies in urbanized areas report to the NTD through an Internetbased reporting system. Each year, performance data from these submissions are used to apportion over $6 billion of FTA funds under the Urbanized Area Formula Grants and Fixed-Guideway Modernization Grants Programs. These data are also used in the annual National Transit Summaries and Trends report, the biennial Conditions and Performance Report to Congress, and in meeting FTA’s obligations under the Government Performance and Results Act. FTA currently allows a transit provider that is severely impacted by a natural disaster to request a waiver from reporting to the NTD for the current year. This policy is based on the NTD Rule (49 CFR Part 630.10), which provides for a waiver from the mandatory NTD reporting requirements if reporting to the NTD would cause ‘‘unreasonable expense or inconvenience.’’ When FTA grants such E:\FR\FM\13NON1.SGM 13NON1
