SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA invites public comment on the request to release approximately 292 acres of property known as the Halifax County Airport (RZZ) under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47107(h)(2). In May, 2009, the Halifax-Northampton Regional Airport Authority opened the new HalifaxNorthampton Regional Airport (IXA) as a replacement for the Halifax County Airport (RZZ). On April 20, 2010, the Chairman of the Board of Commissioners of Halifax County and the Mayor of Roanoke Rapids notified the FAA that because of the opening of the new Halifax-Northampton Regional Airport and the subsequent decommissioning of RZZ that they were officially requesting a full release of the affected property from federal obligations. All operations at RZZ have ceased. The FAA has determined that the request to release property at RZZ submitted by the airport sponsors meets the procedural requirements of the FAA. The release of this property does not and will not impact future aviation needs in the region. The FAA may approve the request in whole no sooner than 30 days after publication of this notice. The Following Is a Brief Overview of the Request The Airport Sponsors are proposing the release of the entire airport property and associated facilities. The release of land is necessary to comply with FAA Grant Assurances that do not allow federally acquired airport property to be used for non-aviation purposes. The permanent abandonment of the subject property will result in the lands of RZZ being changed from aeronautical to nonaeronautical use and release of the lands from the conditions of the AIP Grant Agreement Grant Assurances. In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 47107(c)(2)(B)(i) and (iii), the Airport Sponsor has reinvested an amount equal to the fair market value of RZZ in the recently-constructed IXA.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 7. (2) Title: Compliance Labeling of Retroreflective Materials heavy Trailer Conspicuity. OMB Number: 2127–0569. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Business or other for profit organizations. Abstract: Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, ‘‘Lamps Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment,’’ specifies requirements for vehicle lighting for the purposes of reducing traffic accidents and their tragic results by providing adequate roadway illumination, improved vehicle conspicuity, appropriate information transmission through signal lamps, in both day, night, and other conditions of reduced visibility. For certifications and identification purposes, the Standard requires the permanent marking of the letters ‘‘DOT–C2,’’ ‘‘DOT–C3’’, or ‘‘DOT –C4’’ at least 3mm high at regular intervals on retroreflective sheeting material having adequate performance to provide effective trailer conspicuity. The manufacturers of new tractors and trailers are required to certify that their products are equipped with retroreflective material complying with the requirements of the standard. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) enforces this and other standards through roadside inspections of trucks. There is no practical field test for the performance requirements, and labeling is the only objectives way of distinguishing trailer conspicuity grade material from lower performance material. Without labeling, FMCSA will not be able to enforce the performance requirements of the VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:53 Oct 25, 2011 Jkt 226001 standard and the compliance testing of new tractors and trailers will be complicated. Labeling is also important to small trailer manufactures because it may help them to certify compliance. Because wider stripes or material of lower brightness also can provide the minimum safety performance, the marking system serves the additional role of identifying the minimum stripe width required for retroreflective brightness of the particular material. Since the differences between the brightness grades of suitable retroreflective conspicuity material is not obvious from inspection, the marking system is necessary for tractor and trailer manufacturers and repair shops to assure compliance and for FMCSA to inspect tractors and trailers in use. Permanent labeling is used to identify retroreflective material having the minimum properties required for effective conspicuity of trailers at night. The information enables the FMCSA to make compliance inspections, and it aids tractor and trailer owners and repairs shops in choosing the correct repair materials for damaged tractors and trailers. It also aids smaller trailer manufacturers in certifying compliance of their products. The FMCSA will not be able to determine whether trailers are properly equipped during roadside inspections without labeling. The use of cheaper and more common reflective materials, which are ineffective for the application, would be expected in repairs without the labeling requirement. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 1. Estimated Number of Respondents: 3. Send comments, within 30 days, to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725–17th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention NHTSA Desk Officer. Comments are invited on: Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Department, including whether the information will have practical utility; the accuracy of the Department’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

    Abstract: Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, ``Lamps 
Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment,'' specifies requirements 
for vehicle lighting for the purposes of reducing traffic accidents and 
their tragic results by providing adequate roadway illumination, 
improved vehicle conspicuity, appropriate information transmission

Standard requires the permanent marking of the letters ``DOT-C2,'' 
``DOT-C3'', or ``DOT -C4'' at least 3mm high at regular intervals on 
retroreflective sheeting material having adequate performance to 
provide effective trailer conspicuity.
    The manufacturers of new tractors and trailers are required to 
certify that their products are equipped with retroreflective material 
complying with the requirements of the standard. The Federal Motor 
Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) enforces this and other standards 
through roadside inspections of trucks. There is no practical field 
test for the performance requirements, and labeling is the only 
objectives way of distinguishing trailer conspicuity grade material 
from lower performance material. Without labeling, FMCSA will not be 
able to enforce the performance requirements of the standard and the 
compliance testing of new tractors and trailers will be complicated. 
Labeling is also important to small trailer manufactures because it may 
help them to certify compliance. Because wider stripes or material of 
lower brightness also can provide the minimum safety performance, the 
marking system serves the additional role of identifying the minimum 
stripe width required for retroreflective brightness of the particular 
material. Since the differences between the brightness grades of 
suitable retroreflective conspicuity material is not obvious from

    The FMCSA will not be able to determine whether trailers are 
properly equipped during roadside inspections without labeling. The use 
of cheaper and more common reflective materials, which are ineffective 
for the application, would be expected in repairs without the labeling 
requirement.
