Motorcyclist Advisory Council to the Federal Highway Administration, 54876-54877 [E9-25521]

Download as PDF 54876 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 204 / Friday, October 23, 2009 / Notices ADBF acquired the rail line as part of a corporate restructuring, but did not file its verified notice of exemption with the Board until October 9, 2009.1 Thus, the effective date of the exemption is November 8, 2009 (30 days after the exemption is filed).2 ADBF certifies that its projected annual revenues as a result of this transaction do not exceed those that would qualify it as a Class III carrier and that its projected annual revenues will not exceed $5 million. According to ADBF, there is no provision or agreement that may limit future interchange with a third-party connecting carrier. Pursuant to the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2008, Public Law 110–161, § 193, 121 Stat. 1844 (2007), nothing in this decision authorizes the following activities at any solid waste rail transfer facility: collecting, storing or transferring solid waste outside of its original shipping container; or separating or processing solid waste (including baling, crushing, compacting and shredding). The term ‘‘solid waste’’ is defined in section 1004 of the Solid Waste Disposal Act, 42 U.S.C. 6903. If the notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a petition to revoke does not automatically stay the effectiveness of the exemption. Petitions for stay must be filed no later than November 2, 2009. An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to STB Finance Docket No. 35035, must be filed with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street, SW., Washington, DC 20423– 0001. In addition, a copy of each pleading must be served on John D. Heffner, 1750 K Street, NW., Suite 200, Washington, DC 20006. Board decisions and notices are available on our Web site at https:// www.stb.dot.gov. CPrice-Sewell on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with NOTICES Decided: October 20, 2009. 1 ADBF states that eliminating TCBY as a rail carrier through this acquisition will enable ADBF’s owners to restructure their railroad holdings by filing a class exemption notice for continuance in control of three other disconnected short line railroads they control. It appears that ADBF’s owners presently are not authorized to have common control of more than one rail carrier. If that is the case, the Board expects the owners to promptly submit an appropriate filing for authorization for that common control. 2 The class exemption invoked by ADBF does not provide for retroactive effectiveness.

ACTION: Notice of meeting participation. SUMMARY: This notice advises interested persons that the FAA is conducting workshops to develop an aircraft noise impacts research roadmap. The roadmap is intended to advance our scientific knowledge in order to optimally address the impacts of aircraft noise on society. The main objective of the workshops is to outline key research elements of the roadmap, prioritize research questions, and identify ways to overcome potential research challenges. DATES: The first workshop will be held in Washington, DC, on December 10 and 11, 2009 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. A followon workshop will be held on March 4, 2010, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. ADDRESSES: The first workshop will be held at the National Academy of Sciences Keck Center, 500 Fifth Street, NW., Washington, DC.

Background: Based on the advice of its Research, Engineering and Development Advisory Committee (REDAC), the FAA is developing a comprehensive aircraft noise impacts research roadmap for the FAA and other interested parties to implement more systematic, effective, and complementary research programs. The PO 00000 Frm 00101 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 FAA held a preliminary forum with international noise researchers in conjunction with Internoise 2009 in August 2009 to discuss research needed to advance the current understanding of the relationship between aircraft noise and its impacts such as community annoyance and sleep disturbance. The FAA now invites researchers, practitioners, and other interested parties to participate in a series of upcoming Aircraft Noise Impacts Research Roadmap workshops to contribute to developing the research roadmap with information received from that forum.

with and advise the Administrator on infrastructure issues of concern 
to motorcyclists, including--
    (1) Barrier design;
    (2) Road design, construction, and maintenance practices; and
    (3) The architecture and implementation of intelligent 
transportation system technologies.''
