Frederick E. Tilton, Federal Air Surgeon. [FR Doc. 2013–30332 Filed 12–19–13; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–13–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. AGENCY: ACTION: Federal Highway Administration [Docket No. FHWA–2013–0059] Notice. The FAA has determined that the minimum random drug and alcohol testing percentage rates for the period January 1, 2014, through December 31, 2014, will remain at 25 percent of safety-sensitive employees for random drug testing and 10 percent of safetysensitive employees for random alcohol testing. SUMMARY: emcdonald on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Vicky Dunne, Office of Aerospace Medicine, Drug Abatement Division, Program Policy Branch (AAM–820), Federal Aviation Administration, 800 Independence Avenue SW., Room 806, Washington, DC 20591; Telephone (202) 267–8442. Discussion: Pursuant to 14 CFR 120.109(b), the FAA Administrator’s decision on whether to change the minimum annual random drug testing rate is based on the reported random drug test positive rate for the entire aviation industry. If the reported random drug test positive rate is less than 1.00%, the Administrator may continue the minimum random drug testing rate at 25%. In 2012, the random drug test positive rate was 0.456%. Therefore, the minimum random drug testing rate will remain at 25% for calendar year 2014. Similarly, 14 CFR § 120.217(c), requires the decision on the minimum annual random alcohol testing rate to be based on the random alcohol test violation rate. If the violation rate remains less than 0.50%, the Administrator may continue the minimum random alcohol testing rate at 10%. In 2012, the random alcohol test violation rate was 0.132%. Therefore, the minimum random alcohol testing rate will remain at 10% for calendar year 2014. If you have questions about how the annual random testing percentage rates are determined please refer to the Code of Federal Regulations Title 14, section 120.109(b) (for drug testing), and 120.217(c) (for alcohol testing).

SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00103 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 OMB Control #: 2125–0579. Background: States are legally required to enact and enforce laws that revoke or suspend the drivers licenses of any individual convicted of a drug offense and to make annual certifications to the FHWA on their actions. The implementing regulations of the Department of Transportation and Related Agencies Appropriation Act, 1993 (Pub. L. 102–388, October 6, 1992) require annual certifications by the Governors. In this regard, the State must submit by January 1 of each year either a written certification, signed by the Governor, stating that the State is in compliance with 23 U.S.C. 159; or a written certification stating that the Governor is opposed to the enactment or enforcement, and that the State legislature has adopted a resolution expressing its opposition to 23 U.S.C. 159. Beginning in Fiscal Year 1996, States’ failure to comply by October 1 of each fiscal year resulted in a withholding penalty of 10 percent from major categories of Federal-aid funds (i.e., National Highway System, Surface Transportation Program and the Interstate Maintenance Program) from States’ apportionments for the fiscal year. Any funds withheld in Fiscal Year 1996 and thereafter cannot be restored and will be redistributed. Respondents: Each of the 50 SDOTs, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
