Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 205 / Tuesday, October 23, 2012 / Notices of the certification when driving, for presentation to a duly authorized Federal, State, or local enforcement official. Discussion of Comments FMCSA received one comment in this proceeding. The comment is considered and discussed below. Brian Dardar commented in favor of granting the Federal vision exemption to all of the drivers listed in this notice because they have already demonstrated their ability to operate a CMV safely on state highways and a doctor’s opinion has supported the applicants. Conclusion Based upon its evaluation of the 19 exemption applications, FMCSA exempts James W. Bittle (OK), Kenneth C. Caldwell (NY), Paul Claas (WI), Roger A. Duester (TX), Edward A. Egy (OH), Jonathan D. Evans (KY), Kelvin Frandin (KY), Charlene E. Geary (SD), Robert S. Gibson, Jr. (PA), Andrew F. Hill (TX), David N. Hinchcliffe (TX), Michael C. Hoff (WA), Joel M. Hunter (OH), Morris W. Lammert, Jr., (WI) Ray E. Meyers II, (MD), William J. Powell, Jr. (NC), Benny L. Sanchez (CA), Sandeep Singh (CA) and James T. Stalker (OH) from the vision requirement in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10), subject to the S.P. No. requirements cited above (49 CFR 391.64(b)). In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315, each exemption will be valid for 2 years unless revoked earlier by FMCSA. The exemption will be revoked if: (1) The person fails to comply with the terms and conditions of the exemption; (2) the exemption has resulted in a lower level of safety than was maintained before it was granted; or (3) continuation of the exemption would not be consistent with the goals and objectives of 49 U.S.C. 31136 and 31315. If the exemption is still effective at the end of the 2-year period, the person may apply to FMCSA for a renewal under procedures in effect at that time. Issued on: October 16, 2012. Larry W. Minor, Associate Administrator for Policy.
