Statement of Policy The FAA has determined these unusual circumstances meet the criteria for a limited waiver of the minimum slot usage. Accordingly, the FAA will treat as used any slot or Operating Authorization held by a carrier from February 5 through 15, 2010. The FAA does not intend to routinely grant general waivers to the usage requirements. Rules allow for up to 20 percent nonuse, including planned and unplanned cancellations. These rules are expected to accommodate routine weather and other cancellations under all but the most unusual circumstances. Issued in Washington, DC on February 19th, 2010. James W.

ACTION: Notice of Minimum Annual Percentage Rate for Random Drug Testing. SUMMARY: PHMSA has determined that the minimum random drug testing rate for covered employees will remain at 25 percent during calendar year 2010. DATES: Effective January 1, 2010 through December 31, 2010. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Stanley Kastanas, Program Manager, Substance Abuse Prevention Program, PHMSA, U.S. Department of Transportation, telephone 202–550– 0629 or e-mail stanley.kastanas@dot.gov. Operators of gas, hazardous liquid, and carbon dioxide pipelines and operators of liquefied natural gas facilities must select and test a percentage of covered employees for random drug testing. Pursuant to 49 CFR 199.105(c)(2), (3), and (4), the PHMSA Administrator’s decision on whether to change the minimum annual random drug testing rate is based on the reported random drug test positive rate for the pipeline industry. The data considered by the Administrator comes from operators’ annual submissions of Management Information System (MIS) reports required by 49 CFR 199.119(a). If the reported random drug test positive rate is less than one percent, the Administrator may continue the minimum random drug testing rate at 25 percent. In 2008, the random drug test positive rate was less than one percent. Therefore, the minimum random drug testing rate will remain at 25 percent for calendar year 2010.
