SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that the Department of State has terminated the ineligible status and statutory debarment of Electro-Glass Products, Inc., pursuant to section 38(g)(4) of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA) (22 U.S.C. 2778) and section 127.7 of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).

Buzby, Acting Director, Office of Defense Trade Controls Compliance, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls, Bureau of Political-Military Affairs, Department of State (202) 663–2812. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 38(g)(4) of the AECA and section 127.11 of the ITAR prohibit the issuance of export licenses or other approvals to a person if that person, or any party to the export, has been convicted of violating the AECA and certain other U.S. criminal statutes enumerated at section 38(g)(1) of the AECA and section 120.27 of the ITAR. Such individuals are considered ineligible in accordance with section 120.1 of the ITAR. Also, a person convicted of violating the AECA is subject to statutory debarment under section 127.7 of the ITAR. In July 2007, Electro-Glass Products, Inc. was convicted of violating the AECA (U.S. District Court, District of Pennsylvania, Case # 06–00117–001). Based on this conviction, Electro-Glass Products, Inc., was ineligible in accordance with section 120.1 of the ITAR and was statutorily debarred pursuant to section 127.7 of the ITAR. Electro-Glass Products, Inc. was thus prohibited from participating directly or indirectly in exports of defense articles and defense services. Notice of debarment was published in the Federal Register (72 FR 51885, September 11, 2007). In accordance with section 38(g)(4) of the AECA and section 127.7 of the ITAR, the ineligible status and statutory debarment may be terminated after consultation with other appropriate U.S. agencies, after a thorough review of the circumstances surrounding the conviction, and a finding that VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:04 Aug 05, 2009 Jkt 217001 appropriate steps have been taken to mitigate any law enforcement concerns. The Department of State has reviewed the circumstances and consulted with other appropriate U.S. agencies, and has determined that Electro-Glass Products, Inc., has taken appropriate steps to address the causes of the violations and to mitigate any law enforcement concerns. Therefore, in accordance with section 38(g)(4) of the AECA and section 127.7 of the ITAR, Electro-Glass Products, Inc. is no longer ineligible and the statutory debarment is rescinded, effective June 9, 2009.

PO 00000 Frm 00092 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 ACTION: Notice of request for comments. SUMMARY: The Federal Transit Administration invites public comment about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) approval to renew the following information collection: 49 CFR Part 611 Major Capital Investment Projects (OMB Number: 2132–0561). The information to be collected for this program is to evaluate proposed New and Small Starts projects. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments was published on April 27, 2009. DATES: Comments must be submitted before September 8, 2009. A comment to OMB is most effective if OMB receives it within 30 days of publication. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sylvia L. Marion, Office of Administration, Office of Management Planning, (202) 366–6680. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: 49 CFR Part 611 Major Capital Investment Projects. Abstract: On August 10, 2005, the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient, Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU) was enacted. Sections 3011(d)(5) and 3011(e)(6) of SAFETEA–LU require FTA to issue regulations on the manner in which candidate projects for major capital investment grants for new fixed guideway systems, extensions to existing fixed guideway systems, or significant corridor based bus investments (‘‘New Starts,’’ ‘‘Small Starts,’’ respectively) will be evaluated and rated for purposes of the FTA Capital Investment Grants program for New and Small Starts under 49 USC Section 5309. An Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) for this regulation was issued on January 30, 2006 (71 FR 22841). A Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) was issued on August 3, 2007 (72 FR 43328). The NPRM was withdrawn on February 17, 2009, due to an intervening statutory change resulting from the passage of the SAFETEA–LU Technical Corrections Act in June 2008. FTA has a longstanding requirement to evaluate proposed projects against a prescribed set of statutory criteria. The Surface Transportation and Uniform Relocation Assistance Act of 1987 (STURAA) established in law a set of criteria that proposed projects had to meet in order to be eligible for federal funding. The requirement for summary project ratings has been in place since 1998. Thus, the requirements for project evaluation and data collection for New Starts projects are not new, nor have E:\FR\FM\06AUN1.SGM 06AUN1
