SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FRA projects funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development and Related Agencies Appropriations Act for 2010 (Div. A of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111– 117) (‘‘FY 2010 DOT Appropriations Act’’), must comply with the Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act of 2008 (‘‘PRIIA’’) Buy America srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES DATES: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:26 Apr 09, 2012 Jkt 226001 provisions (49 U.S.C. 24405(a)). Section 24405(a)(1) authorizes the Secretary of Transportation (‘‘Secretary’’) to obligate grant funds only if the steel, iron, and manufactured goods used in the project are produced in the United States. However, sec. 24405(a)(2) also permits the Secretary to waive the Buy America requirements if he finds that: (A) Applying paragraph (1) would be inconsistent with the public interest; (B) the steel, iron, and goods manufactured in the United States are not produced in sufficient and reasonably available amount or are not of a satisfactory quality; (C) rolling stock or power train equipment cannot be bought or delivered to the United States within a reasonable time; or (D) including domestic material will increase the cost of the overall project by more than 25 percent. Before determining whether it is appropriate to waive the Buy America provision, sec. 24405(a)(4) requires that the Secretary first provide the public with an opportunity to comment. If after receiving public comment, the Secretary decides to grant the waiver, a detailed written justification for the decision must be published in the Federal Register. The purpose of this notice is to inform the public that FRA has received a waiver request for the Vossloh 101–LV concrete tie system, which contains certain components not manufactured in the United States, and to solicit public comments on the request. BNSF as the owner of the infrastructure that will be improved by the HSIPR grants proposes to install approximately 171,000 Vossloh 101–LV concrete ties for the following projects: (a) The Pacific Northwest Rail Corridor Program (b) the Amtrak Quad Cities to Chicago Service Initiation Project, (c) the Tower 55 At-Grade Improvement Project, and (d) the LA to Fullerton Triple Track—Segment 7 Project. Transmittals in furtherance of this request have been submitted to FRA by WSDOT, IDOT, TxDOT, and Caltrans. The foreign components of the concrete tie are limited to the dowel inserts and SKL–30 tension clamps. The function of the dowel insert is to provide housing for the lag screw that fastens the SKL–30 tension clamps to the tie. The SKL–30 tension clamps hold the rail to the tie and prevent lateral and longitudinal movement of the rail. BNSF and the identified States seek the waiver pursuant to sec. 24405(a)(2)(B) because they believe that for the reasons set forth in the request, that suitable materials are not reasonably available in the United States and therefore a waiver from PO 00000 Frm 00100 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 21621 FRA’s Buy America requirement is appropriate. The request in its entirety is available on FRA’s Web site at http:// www.fra.dot.gov/Pages/251.shtml. In order to completely understand the facts surrounding the request, FRA seeks comment from all interested parties regarding the availability of suitable domestically manufactured products, any public interest concerns, or the potential Buy America waiver. Issued in Washington, DC on April 4, 2012. Corey Hill, Director, Rail Project Development and Delivery, Federal Railroad Administration.
