In 2011, the random drug test positive rate was less than one percent. Therefore, the PHMSA minimum annual random drug testing selection rate will remain at 25 percent for calendar year 2013. Reminder for Operators To Report Contractor MIS Data On January 19, 2010, PHMSA published an Advisory Bulletin (75 FR 2926) implementing the annual collection of contractor MIS drug and alcohol testing data. All applicable § 199.119 (drug testing) and § 199.229 (alcohol testing) MIS reporting operators are responsible for the submission of all contractor MIS reports to PHMSA, as well as their own, by March 15, 2013. Contractors with employees in safetysensitive positions who performed covered functions as defined in § 199.3, must submit these reports only through the auspices of each operator for whom these covered employees performed those covered functions (i.e., maintenance, operations or emergency response). mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with New Method for Operators To Obtain User Name and Password for Electronic Reporting In previous years, PHMSA attempted to mail the DAMIS user name and password to operator staff with responsibility for submitting DAMIS reports. Based on the number of phone calls to PHMSA each year requesting this information, the mailing process has not been effective. Pipeline operators have been submitting reports required by Parts 191 and 195 through the PHMSA Portal (https:// portal.phmsa.dot.gov/pipeline) for the past few years. Each Office of Pipeline Safety issued Operator Identification Number (OpID) should employ staff with access to the PHMSA Portal. The user name and password required for an OpID to access DAMIS and enter calendar year 2012 data will be available to all staff with access to the PHMSA Portal in late December 2012. When the DAMIS user name and password is available in the Portal, all registered users will receive an email to that effect. Operator staff with responsibility for submitting DAMIS reports should coordinate with registered Portal users to obtain the DAMIS user name and password. Registered portal users for an OpID typically include your Compliance Officer and staff, or consultants with responsibility for submitting annual and incident reports on PHMSA F 7000- and 7100-series forms. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:42 Dec 05, 2012 Jkt 229001 For OpIDs that have failed to register in the PHMSA Portal for Part 191 and 195 reporting purposes, operator staff responsible for submitting DAMIS reports can register in the Portal by following the instructions at http:// opsweb.phmsa.dot.gov/portal_message/ PHMSA_Portal_Registration.pdf. Pursuant to 49 CFR Parts 199.119(a) and 199.229(a), operators with 50 or more covered employees, including both operator and contractor staff, are required to submit DAMIS reports annually. Operators with less than 50 total covered employees are required to report only upon written request from PHMSA. If an OpID submitted a calendar year 2011 DAMIS report with less than 50 total covered employees, the PHMSA Portal message may state that no calendar year 2012 DAMIS report is required. Some of these OpIDs may have grown to more than 50 covered employees during CY 2012. The Portal message will include instructions for how these OpIDs can obtain a calendar year 2012 DAMIS user name and password.

into an agreement under which Chessie is acquiring all of Anderson's 
rights to the Track as well as assuming its obligation to ship to 
owners of the adjacent commercial properties.\1\
