SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Former Secretary of Transportation Mary E. Peters and Mexico’s Secretary of Communications and Transportation ´ Luis Tellez Kuenzler announced a demonstration project to implement certain trucking provisions of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in February 2007. The demonstration project was initiated on September 6, 2007, after the Department of Transportation (DOT) complied with a number of conditions imposed by section 6901 of the U.S. Troop Readiness, Veterans’ Care, Katrina Recovery, and Iraq Accountability Act, 2007, Public Law 110–28, 121 Stat. 112, 183, May 25, 2007. Further details regarding DOT’s compliance with these PO 00000 Frm 00109 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 conditions may be found in Federal Register notices published on June 8 and August 17, 2007 (72 FR 31877 and 72 FR 46263, respectively). The demonstration project was initially expected to last one year (see 72 FR 23883, May 1, 2007). On August 6, 2008, FMCSA announced that the demonstration project was being extended from one year to the full three years allowed by statute (73 FR 45796). On March 11, 2009, the President signed into law the Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009, Public Law 111–8, division I, title I, 123 Stat. 524.

The Agency has ceased processing applications by prospective project participants and has taken other necessary steps to comply with the provision. Further, as a condition of participating in this project, Mexico-domiciled motor carriers were required to submit to FMCSA Form OCE–46 (Request for Revocation of Registration). This form requests that any registration issued by FMCSA pursuant to the cross-border demonstration project be revoked upon termination of the project. The Agency has processed these forms and revoked all registrations issued in connection with the cross-border demonstration project. Issued on: March 13, 2009. Rose A. McMurray, Acting Deputy Administrator. [FR Doc. E9–5956 Filed 3–17–09; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–EX–P E:\FR\FM\18MRN1.SGM 18MRN1
