FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2013–0019. In its petition, OAR seeks relief from 49 U.S.C. 21103(a)(4), which, in part, requires a train employee to receive 48 hours off-duty after initiating an on-duty period for 6 consecutive days. Specifically, OAR seeks a waiver to allow a train employee to initiate an onduty period each day for 7 consecutive days followed by 1 day off duty and an 8th day assignment with 2 days off duty. In support of its request, OAR submitted documents demonstrating its employees’ support for the requested waiver and a description of its employees’ work schedules. According to OAR, train employees have set start times and set off-duty days, and do not lay over at away-from-home terminals. Additionally, OAR claims that it operates one switching job per day, serving only one industry in a 12-hour cycle. The typical duty tour is from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m., 7 days per week, with an occasional switching move outside of the regular shift. Two crews share the 7day-per-week schedule. OAR also states that before the Rail Safety Improvement Act of 2008, its employees worked 7 days on, 7 days off, subject to an infrequent call. OAR asserts that its employees worked this type of schedule for 18 years without any safety problems, and that it was awarded the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association Jake Award each year during those 18 years. A copy of the petition, as well as any written communications concerning the petition, is available for review online at www.regulations.gov and in person at the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Docket Operations Facility, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., W12–140, Washington, DC 20590.

FRA does not anticipate scheduling a public hearing in connection with these proceedings since the facts do not appear to warrant a hearing. If any interested party desires an opportunity for oral comment, they should notify FRA, in writing, before the end of the comment period and specify the basis for their request. All communications concerning these proceedings should identify the appropriate docket number and may be submitted by any of the following methods: • Web site: https:// www.regulations.gov.
