Download as PDF emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES 40824 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 130 / Monday, July 8, 2013 / Notices RSTAC was established upon the enactment of the ICC Termination Act of 1995 (ICCTA), on December 29, 1995, to advise the Board’s Chairman, the Secretary of Transportation, the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation of the Senate, and the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure of the House of Representatives with respect to rail transportation policy issues RSTAC considers significant. RSTAC focuses on issues of importance to small shippers and small railroads, including car supply, rates, competition, and procedures for addressing claims. ICCTA directs RSTAC to develop private-sector mechanisms to prevent, or identify and address, obstacles to the most effective and efficient transportation system practicable. The Secretary of Transportation and the members of the Board cooperate with RSTAC in providing research, technical, and other reasonable support. RSTAC also prepares an annual report concerning its activities and recommendations on whatever regulatory or legislative relief it considers appropriate. RSTAC is not subject to the Federal Advisory Committee Act. RSTAC consists of 19 members. Of this number, 15 members are appointed by the Chairman of the Board, and the remaining four members are comprised of the Secretary of Transportation and the Members of the Board, who serve as ex officio, nonvoting members. Of the 15 members, nine members are voting members and are appointed from senior executive officers of organizations engaged in the railroad and rail shipping industries. At least four of the voting members must be representatives of small shippers as determined by the Chairman, and at least four of the voting members must be representatives of Class II or III railroads. The remaining six members to be appointed—three representing Class I railroads and three representing large shipper organizations—serve in a nonvoting, advisory capacity, but are entitled to participate in RSTAC deliberations. RSTAC is required by statute to meet at least semi-annually. In recent years, RSTAC has chosen to meet four times a year, with the first meeting each February. Meetings are generally held at the Board’s headquarters in Washington, DC, although some may be held in other locations. RSTAC members receive no compensation for their services and are required to provide for the expenses incidental to their service, including travel expenses, as the Board cannot provide for these expenses. The RSTAC VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:27 Jul 05, 2013 Jkt 229001 Chairman, however, may request funding from the Department of Transportation to cover travel expenses, subject to certain restrictions in ICCTA. RSTAC also may solicit and use private funding for its activities, again subject to certain restrictions in ICCTA. RSTAC members currently have elected to submit annual dues to pay for RSTAC expenses. RSTAC members must be citizens of the United States and represent as broadly as practicable the various segments of the railroad and rail shipper industries. They may not be full-time employees of the United States. Further, RSTAC members appointed or reappointed after June 18, 2010, are prohibited from serving as federally registered lobbyists during their RSTAC term. The members of RSTAC are appointed for a term of three years. A member may serve after the expiration of his or her term until a successor has taken office. No member will be eligible to serve in excess of two consecutive terms. Due to the unanticipated resignation of RSTAC members, two vacancies currently exist. One is for a large shipper representative, and the other is for an at-large (public interest) representative. Upon appointment by the Chairman, both representatives will serve for three years, and may be eligible to serve a second three-year term following the end of their first term. Suggestions for candidates to fill the two vacancies should be submitted in letter form, identify the name of the candidate, provide a summary of why the candidate is qualified to serve on RSTAC, and contain a representation that the candidate is willing to serve as a member of RSTAC effective immediately upon appointment. RSTAC candidate suggestions should be filed with the Board by July 31, 2013. Members selected to serve on RSTAC are chosen at the discretion of the Board’s Chairman. Please note that submissions will be available to the public at the Board’s offices and posted on the Board’s Web site under Docket No. EP 526 (Sub-No. 5). This action will not significantly affect either the quality of the human environment or the conservation of energy resources. Authority: 49 U.S.C. 726. Decided: July 1, 2013. By the Board, Rachel D. Campbell, Director, Office of Proceedings. Raina S. White, Clearance Clerk.
