Solicitation of Applications for Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program (MCSAP) High Priority Grant Funding, 30105-30106 [2010-12831]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 103 / Friday, May 28, 2010 / Notices exempted under this part and equipped with the antitheft device on which the line’s exemption is based. Further, Part 543.9(c)(2) provides for the submission of petitions ‘‘to modify an exemption to permit the use of an antitheft device similar to but differing from the one specified in that exemption.’’ The agency wishes to minimize the administrative burden that Part 543.9(c)(2) could place on exempted vehicle manufacturers and itself. The agency did not intend in drafting Part 543 to require the submission of a modification petition for every change to the components or design of an antitheft device. The significance of many such changes could be de minimis. Therefore, NHTSA suggests that if the manufacturer contemplates making any changes, the effects of which might be characterized as de minimis, it should consult the agency before preparing and submitting a petition to modify. Authority: 49 U.S.C. 33106; delegation of authority at 49 CFR 1.50. Issued on: May 25, 2010. Stephen R. Kratzke, Associate Administrator for Rulemaking. [FR Doc. 2010–12948 Filed 5–27–10; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–59–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Railroad Administration Petition for Waiver of Compliance In accordance with part 211 of Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), notice is hereby given that the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) received a request for a waiver of compliance with certain requirements of its safety standards. The individual petition is described below, including the party seeking relief, the regulatory provisions involved, the nature of the relief being requested, and the petitioner’s arguments in favor of relief. Long Island Rail Road jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES [Waiver Petition Docket Number FRA–2010– 0090] The Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) seeks a waiver of compliance with the Locomotive Safety Standards, 49 CFR 229.129(b)(2), which requires that the sound level of locomotives manufactured before September 18, 2006, have their horns tested before June 24, 2010; and 49 CFR 229.129(c), which prescribes the testing requirements for testing locomotive horns. LIRR operates 836 M–7 MU passenger cars of which 84 have had their horns VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:43 May 27, 2010 Jkt 220001 tested; and 170 M–3 MU passenger cars of which 60 have had their horns tested. In addition, LIRR operates 80 diesel electric locomotives of which 7 horns have been tested; and 23 control car locomotives of which 2 horns have been tested. LIRR cites the previous winters (2009 and 2010) climatic conditions for failure to complete the required horn testing. LIRR is requesting an additional 6month extension to complete the testing. Because of the constraints of their maintenance facilities, LIRR is also requesting that they be allowed to utilize an alternate testing standard. LIRR would do reference sample testing of locomotive horns as required in 49 CFR 229.129(c), and use the test results from the reference tests to develop an alternative test plan. Interested parties are invited to participate in these proceedings by submitting written views, data, or comments. FRA does not anticipate scheduling a public hearing in connection with these proceedings since the facts do not appear to warrant a hearing. If any interested party desires an opportunity for oral comment, they should notify FRA, in writing, before the end of the comment period and specify the basis for their request.
