Download as PDF 57494 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 186 / Thursday, September 25, 2014 / Proposed Rules The Commission has before it a petition for rulemaking filed by WKEF Licensee L.P. (‘‘WKEF Licensee’’), the licensee of station WKEF(TV), channel 51, Dayton, Ohio, requesting the substitution of channel 18 for channel 51 at Dayton. While the Commission instituted a freeze on the acceptance of full power television rulemaking petitions requesting channel substitutions in May 2011, it subsequently announced that it would lift the freeze to accept such petitions for rulemaking seeking to relocate from channel 51 pursuant to a voluntary relocation agreement with Lower 700 MHz A Block licensees. WKEF Licensee has entered into such a voluntary relocation agreement with T-Mobile, Inc. and states that operation on channel 18 would eliminate potential interference to and from wireless operations in the adjacent Lower 700 MHZ A Block. DATES: Comments must be filed on or before October 27, 2014, and reply comments on or before November 10, 2014. SUMMARY: Federal Communications Commission, Office of the Secretary, 445 12th Street SW., Washington, DC 20554. In addition to filing comments with the FCC, interested parties should serve counsel for petitioner as follows: Clifford M. Harrington, Esq., Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, LLP, 2300 N Street NW., Washington, DC 20037– 1128.

Background On August 11, 2014, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) published a notice of proposed rulemaking [79 FR 46748] seeking comments on our proposal to revise the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171–180) applicable to return shipments of certain hazardous materials by motor vehicle. PHSMA proposed to establish a new section in the regulations to provide an exception for materials that are transported in a manner that meets the definition of ‘‘reverse logistics.’’ In this NPRM, PHMSA also proposed to clearly identify the hazardous materials authorized, and the packaging, hazard communication, and training requirements applicable to reverse logistics shipments. In addition, this rulemaking also proposed to expand an existing exception for reverse logistics shipments of used automobile batteries that are being shipped from a retail facility to a recycling center. II. Extension of Comment Period PHMSA received a request to extend the comment period by thirty days from the American Trucking Association (ATA). ATA is conducting its annual meeting in early October 2014, and will require more time to adequately respond with an official comment. ATA is requesting this extension in order to have sufficient time to fully evaluate the impacts of the proposed requirements associated with the proposals in the NPRM. An extension of the comment period will provide ATA and its members the opportunity to compile valuable and comprehensive comments. Due to PHMSA’s desire to collect meaningful input from affected VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:25 Sep 24, 2014 Jkt 232001 stakeholders, PHMSA is granting the ATA’s request to extend the comment period to ensure ATA and other stakeholders have sufficient time to review the proposals in the NPRM.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    On August 11, 2014, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety 
Administration (PHMSA) published a notice of proposed rulemaking [79 FR 
46748] seeking comments on our proposal to revise the Hazardous 
Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171-180) applicable to return 
shipments of certain hazardous materials by motor vehicle. PHSMA 
proposed to establish a new section in the regulations to provide an 
exception for materials that are transported in a manner that meets the 
definition of ``reverse logistics.'' In this NPRM, PHMSA also proposed 
to clearly identify the hazardous materials authorized, and the 
packaging, hazard communication, and training requirements applicable 
to reverse logistics shipments. In addition, this rulemaking also 
proposed to expand an existing exception for reverse logistics 
shipments of used automobile batteries that are being shipped from a 
retail facility to a recycling center.

II. Extension of Comment Period

    PHMSA received a request to extend the comment period by thirty 
days from the American Trucking Association (ATA). ATA is conducting 
its annual meeting in early October 2014, and will require more time to 
adequately respond with an official comment. ATA is requesting this 
extension in order to have sufficient time to fully evaluate the

extension will allow stakeholders sufficient time to conduct a more 
thorough review.
