Notice of Open Public Hearing, 14859-14860 [2012-5959]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 49 / Tuesday, March 13, 2012 / Notices Under the schedule, RTC requests that after a declaratory order proceeding has been instituted, opening comments be due on day 30; reply comments be due on day 60; RTC’s rebuttal comments be due on day 75; and a decision by the Board be served on day 135. On January 23, 2012, the American Train Dispatchers Association (ATDA) filed an opposition to the request for a procedural schedule. ATDA states that there is no reason to prolong the case by requesting additional comments and briefings.3 The petition for a declaratory order raises issues that require consideration by the Board. By this decision, the Board is instituting a proceeding under 49 U.S.C. 721(a). An accurate and complete record is required for the Board to determine whether it has jurisdiction over RTC. Therefore, RTC and ATDA are directed to supplement the record in this proceeding by March 28, 2012, with copies of their respective filings submitted to the Retirement Board and D.C. Circuit in the course of those proceedings. If parties other than RTC and ATDA submitted filings before the Retirement Board and D.C. Circuit, RTC must submit copies of those filings, as well as any transcripts of proceedings before those bodies. Because this additional information will assist the Board in making a jurisdictional determination, no further briefings from the parties are necessary, and the request for a procedural schedule is denied. This action will not significantly affect either the quality of the human environment or the conservation of energy resources.
