AAR seeks explicit authorization for its members to conduct the inspections and tests required by these regulatory provisions at intervals of up to 35 days, as opposed to at least once each month. A copy of AAR’s full petition is available for review online at https:// www.regulations.gov. Because the time frames for conducting various inspections and tests required by 49 CFR parts 234 and 236 (including the sections at issue in AAR’s waiver petition) have been the subject of much discussion in the industry over the last several years and also the subject of previous waiver requests, FRA believes holding a public hearing on the issues presented by AAR’s petition would be beneficial. Accordingly, FRA invites all interested persons to participate in a public hearing addressing the time frames of the tests and inspections that are the subject of AAR’s request. DATES: (1) Public Hearing: A public hearing will be held on February 10, 2010, at 9:30 a.m. in Washington DC. (2) Comments: Interested parties may submit comments relevant to this waiver request and/or issues discussed at the hearing to the address noted below.
