The trackage rights will permit CCP to operate its trains in freight service with its own crews, including the right to enter and exit the trackage at CEDR’s connection to the Cedar Falls Industrial Park near milepost 0.8 in Cedar Falls. In addition, the proposed trackage rights will allow CCP and CEDR to improve the efficiency of their operations in the Cedar Falls area.

owed to a business concern, the penalty shall be paid regardless of 
whether the business concern requested payment of interest. 31 U.S.C. 
3902(c)(1). Agencies must pay the interest penalty calculated with the 
interest rate, which is in effect at the time the agency accrues the 
obligation to pay a late payment interest penalty. 31 U.S.C. 3902(a). 
``The interest penalty shall be paid for the period beginning on the 
day after the required payment date and ending on the date on which 
payment is made.'' 31 U.S.C. 3902(b).
