Jersey (U S RCNJ), USRP's affiliate, and USRP are entering into an 
agreement providing for USRP to operate the rail line, with U S RCNJ 
retaining a residual common carrier obligation.

rail carrier and that its projected annual revenues will not exceed $5 
million.
    The transaction is expected to be consummated on or after December 
12, 2009, the effective date of the exemption (30 days after the

``solid waste'' is defined in section 1004 of the Solid Waste Disposal 
Act, 42 U SC. 6903.
    If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, 
the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption 
under 49 U SC. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a 
petition to revoke will not automatically stay the effectiveness of the 
exemption. Petitions for stay must be filed no later than December 4,
