ACTION: Correction to Notice of Buy America Waiver

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: On September 16, 2014, NHTSA published a Notice of Buy America 
Waiver that provided findings to requests from the Michigan Office of 
Highway Safety Planning (OHSP) to waive the requirements of Buy 
America. The Notice stated an effective date of October 16, 2014. 
However, that date did not correctly reflect NHTSA's intentions for the 
effective date. Also, the Notice did not accurately cite the 
appropriate section of the United States Code for motorcyclist safety 
grant funds, 23 U.S.C. 405(f). This document corrects those errors.

DATES: The effective date of this correction is the date of publication 
October 6, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On September 16, 2014, NHTSA published a 
Notice of Buy America Waiver that provided findings in regards to five 
requests from the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning (OHSP) to 
waive the requirements of Buy America. In summary, NHTSA found the 
following:
     A waiver of the Buy America requirements, 23 U.S.C. 313, 
was appropriate for OHSP to purchase a portable data projector, 
wireless remote control presenter, DVDs, high-visibility motorcycle 
vests and twenty training motorcycles.
     A non-availability waiver of the Buy America requirements 
was inappropriate for OHSP to lease a copy/printer/fax machine.

Need for Correction

    The Notice of Buy America Waiver stated the waiver was effective on 
October 16, 2014. This date did not correctly state NHTSA's intentions. 
On September 16, 2014, at 79 FR 55529, NHTSA intended the waiver to be 
effective on an earlier date in order to allow the grantee an 
opportunity to purchase the items requested. Also, the Notice did not 
accurately cite the appropriate section of the United States Code for 
motorcyclist safety grant funds. The Notice cited to 23 U.S.C. 405(g), 
but NHTSA intended to cite 23 U.S.C. 405(f) for motorcyclist safety 
grant funds.
    In FR Doc. 2014-0090 appearing on page 55529 of the Federal 
Register of Tuesday, September 16, 2014, the following corrections are 
made:
    In the DATES section in the left column, revise the paragraph to 
read as follows:
    ``The effective date of this waiver is the date of publication.''
    In the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section in the middle column, 
revise the first and second paragraph to cite the following provision: 
``23 U.S.C. 405(f).''

    Issued in Washington, DC, on September 30, 2014, under authority 
delegated in 49 CFR part 1.95.
