Ford Investment and Reform Act for the 21st Century by requiring that all persons who remove any lifelimited aircraft part have a method to prevent the installation of that part after it has reached its life limit. This action reduces the risk of life-limited parts being used beyond their life limits. This action would also require that manufacturers of life-limited parts provide marking instructions when requested.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) State Reports for American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (RECOVERY ACT), OMB Control # 2125–0623. Background: The Recovery Act provides the State Departments of Transportation and Federal Lands Agencies with $27.5 billion for highway infrastructure investment. With these funds also comes an increased level of data reporting with the stated goal of improving transparency and accountability at all levels of government. According to President Obama ‘‘Every American will be able to hold Washington accountable for these decisions by going online to see how and where their tax dollars are being spent.’’ The Federal Highway ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00106 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Administration (FHWA) in concert with the Office of the Secretary of Transportation (OST) and the other modes within the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) will be taking the appropriate steps to ensure that this accountability and transparency is in place for all infrastructure investments. The July 30, 2009, notice incorrectly advised that States are required to provide information on the five most highly compensated officers of States’ vendors for all Recovery Act projects. The executive compensation reporting requirement, contained in section 1512(c)(4) of the Recovery Act, does not apply to vendors. The executive compensation reporting requirement does apply to States, as prime recipients under the Recovery Act’s Highway Infrastructure Investment appropriation. The requirement also applies to any sub-recipients of the States. The terms ‘‘prime recipient’’, ‘‘sub-recipient’’, ‘‘vendor’’, and ‘‘compensation’’ are defined, and further information is provided on the executive compensation reporting requirement, in guidance issued by the President’s Office of Management and Budget titled ‘‘Implementing Guidance for Reports on Use of Funds Pursuant to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009’’ (June 22, 2009) and Supplements 1 and 2 thereto.

Applicant’s sister owns a 3% share and a corporate entity, Continental Air Transport Company I, owns a 49% share. Applicant states that he serves as the president of RW Express, directs the day-to-day operations, and is engaged in major managerial decisions. According to Applicant, RW Express operates a fleet of 65 vehicles and drivers and provides charter service within New York and between New York and points in nearby states. Applicant is also the sole member and owner of City Sights Twin, a noncarrier formed for the purpose of owning an interest in Twin America.

The Board did not grant tentative authority in that proceeding, but instead instituted a proceeding to address matters raised by the application. According to Mr. Marmurstein, he was previously unaware that under 49 U.S.C. 14303(a)(5), Board approval is required for the acquisition of control of a carrier by a person that is not a motor passenger carrier, but that controls any number of such carriers. Accordingly, he is filing this application in anticipation of Board approval in STB Docket No. MC–F–21035. If the filing in STB Docket No. MC–F–21035 is not approved, this request is moot. Under 49 U.S.C. 14303(b), the Board must approve and authorize a transaction found to be consistent with the public interest, taking into consideration at least: (1) The effect of the transaction on the adequacy of transportation to the public; (2) the total fixed charges that result; and (3) the interest of the affected carrier employees. Applicant has submitted the information required by 49 CFR 1182.2, and submitted a statement that the 12month aggregate gross operating revenues of RW Express exceed the $2 million jurisdictional threshold of 49 U.S.C. 14303(g). Applicant states that the proposed transaction will not affect the adequacy of transportation services available to the public because the charter/tour bus segment is competitive, the proposed transaction will not adversely impact competition, and this agency’s prior finding regarding low entry barriers in this segment continues to be accurate. Applicant states that the proposed transaction will not adversely impact fixed charges because RW Express will continue to be controlled by Mr. Marmurstein as it was prior to this application. According to Applicant, the employees of RW Express will not be adversely affected. Additional information, including a copy of the application, may be obtained from Applicant’s representative. On the basis of the application, we find that the proposed acquisition is consistent with the public interest and should be authorized. If any opposing comments are timely filed, this finding will be deemed vacated, and unless a final decision can be made on the record as developed, a procedural schedule will be adopted to reconsider the application.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Applicant is an individual who attained 
control of RW Express in 2003 when he attained a 48% interest in its 
stock. Applicant's sister owns a 3% share and a corporate entity, 
Continental Air Transport Company I, owns a 49% share. Applicant states 
that he serves as the president of RW Express, directs the day-to-day 
operations, and is engaged in major managerial decisions. According to 
Applicant, RW Express operates a fleet of 65 vehicles and drivers and 
provides charter service within New York and between New York and 
points in nearby states.
    Applicant is also the sole member and owner of City Sights Twin, a 
noncarrier formed for the purpose of owning an interest in Twin 
America. Applicant, along with City Sights Twin, Stagecoach Group PLC, 
its intermediate subsidiaries, Coach USA, Inc., and International Bus 
Services, seek control of Twin America in Stagecoach Group PLC and 
Coach USA, Inc., et al.--Acquisition of Control--Twin America, LLC, STB 
Docket No. MC-F-21035, served and published in the Federal Register on 
September 18, 2009 (74 FR 47985-86). The Board did not grant tentative 
authority in that proceeding, but instead instituted a proceeding to 
address matters raised by the application.
    According to Mr. Marmurstein, he was previously unaware that under 
49 U.S.C. 14303(a)(5), Board approval is required for the acquisition 
of control of a carrier by a person that is not a motor passenger 
carrier, but that controls any number of such carriers. Accordingly, he 
is filing this application in anticipation of Board approval in STB 
Docket No. MC-F-21035. If the filing in STB Docket No. MC-F-21035 is 
not approved, this request is moot.
    Under 49 U.S.C. 14303(b), the Board must approve and authorize a 
transaction found to be consistent with the public interest, taking 
into consideration at least: (1) The effect of the transaction on the 
adequacy of transportation to the public; (2) the total fixed charges 
that result; and (3) the interest of the affected carrier employees.
    Applicant has submitted the information required by 49 CFR 1182.2, 
and submitted a statement that the 12-month aggregate gross operating 
revenues of RW Express exceed the $2 million jurisdictional threshold 
of 49 U.S.C. 14303(g). Applicant states that the proposed transaction 
will not affect the adequacy of transportation services available to 
the public because the charter/tour bus segment is competitive, the 
proposed transaction will not adversely impact competition, and this 
agency's prior finding regarding low entry barriers in this segment 
continues to be accurate. Applicant states that the proposed 
transaction will not adversely impact fixed charges because RW Express 
will continue to be controlled by Mr. Marmurstein as it was prior to 
this application. According to Applicant, the employees of RW Express 
will not be adversely affected. Additional information, including a 
copy of the application, may be obtained from Applicant's 
representative.
    On the basis of the application, we find that the proposed 
acquisition is consistent with the public interest and should be 
authorized. If any opposing comments are timely filed, this finding 
will be deemed vacated, and unless a final decision can be made on the 
record as developed, a procedural schedule will be adopted to 
reconsider the application. See 49 CFR 1182.6(c). If no opposing 
comments are filed by the expiration of the comment period, this notice 
will take effect automatically and will be the final Board action.

the human environment or the conservation of energy resources.
