The Small Business Act and the Small Business Investment Act mandate that all guaranteed loans provided by the SBA to small business concerns (SBCs) must have a reasonable assurance of ability to repay. See 15 U.S.C. 636(a) (6) and 687(f); see also 13 CFR 120.150. The information collections described below—SBA Form 1244 and SBA Form 2450—are part of the application process for a 504 loan. SBA is proposing to make changes to Form 2450 to remove duplicative questions as well as questions that are no longer applicable to the 504 Loan Program. Solicitation of Public Comments Comments may be submitted on (a) whether the collection of information is necessary for the agency to properly perform its functions; (b) whether the burden estimates are accurate; (c) whether there are ways to minimize the burden, including through the use of automated techniques or other forms of information technology; and (d) whether there are ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Summary of Information Collections (1) Title: Application for Section 504 Loan Description of Respondents: Small Business Concerns applying for a Section 504 loan and Certified Development Companies. Form Number: SBA Form 1244 collects information that is used to determine the creditworthiness and repayment ability of the small business concern and its eligibility for SBA financial assistance; as well as the terms and conditions of the 504 loan. Form 1244 is also used by CDCs to request SBA’s guarantee on the debenture. SBA Form 2450 is the Eligibility Checklist used to document the 504 loan’s eligibility based on program requirements.

ACTION: Safety Advisory Notice. AGENCY: PHMSA is issuing this safety advisory to provide guidance on the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR, parts 171–180) to persons who prepare, offer, and transport materials contaminated or suspected of being contaminated with the Ebola virus.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This Safety Advisory provides guidance on the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR, parts 171–180) to persons who prepare, offer and transport materials contaminated or suspected of being contaminated with the Ebola virus. The HMR apply to any material that the DOT determines is capable of posing an unreasonable risk to health, safety, and property when transported in commerce.1 Material contaminated or suspected of being contaminated with Ebola is regulated as a Category A infectious substance under the HMR. To ensure their safe transportation, the Ebola contaminated materials must be packaged in conformity with the applicable requirements in the HMR for Category A infectious substances. Ebola contaminated materials that have been SUMMARY: 1 The HMR applies to interstate, intrastate, and foreign commerce. PO 00000 Frm 00084 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 appropriately incinerated, autoclaved, or otherwise inactivated are not considered Category A infectious substances and are not subject to the requirements of the HMR. For more information on the HMR requirements see http://phmsa.dot.gov/hazmat/ transporting-infectious-substances. For guidance on how to handle infectious substances before transporting them, refer to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (see http:// www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/hcp/ index.html). This document is intended to provide general guidance and does not address many of the specific provisions and exceptions contained in the HMR. It should not be used as a substitute for the HMR to determine compliance. Strict compliance with the HMR is required, unless you have been granted a special permit. Transportation of a hazardous material in a motor vehicle, aircraft, or vessel operated by a Federal, state, or local government employee solely for noncommercial Federal, state, or local government purposes is not subject to the HMR. Accordingly, waste generated from the treatment of a patient contaminated or suspected of being contaminated with the Ebola virus transported by a Federal, state, or local government employee to a disposal facility is not subject to the HMR. DOT, however, recommends that Federal, state, or local governments comply with appropriate safety requirements provided in the HMR to ensure the safe transportation of waste contaminated or suspected of being contaminated with the Ebola virus. We also recommend compliance with all conditions and operational controls specified in any applicable special permit issued for the transportation of waste contaminated or suspected of being contaminated with the Ebola virus and our guidance referred to below. To transport materials contaminated or suspected of being contaminated with the Ebola virus, a special permit may be necessary to allow for a variance of the HMR packaging requirements to handle the larger volume of contaminated waste generated during the treatment of Ebola patients. DOT may grant a special permit if the applicant can demonstrate that an alternative packaging will achieve a safety level that is at least equal to the safety level required under HMR or is consistent with the public interest if a required safety level does not exist. Emergency processing of special permits applies when the special permit is necessary to prevent significant injury to persons or property not preventable under normal E:\FR\FM\30OCN1.SGM 30OCN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    The FAA's System Wide Information Management (SWIM) program is one 
of seven transformational programs of the NextGen portfolio. SWIM 
utilizes a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) to exchange aviation 
data and services without the restrictive, time consuming and expensive 
process of developing unique interfaces for the multitude of systems 
and equipment used by the National Airspace System (NAS).
    The Aircraft Access to SWIM (AAtS) initiative provides a global 
extension of the NAS SOA to aircraft using air to ground network 
services, selected and funded by aircraft operators, exchanging data 
between aircraft and the NAS. The AAtS capabilities established in 
Phase 1 are significant in that near real-time

[[Page 64646]]

NAS data is now available to support strategic and tactical traffic 
management and flight operations up to, but not including, those uses 
directly affecting aircraft trajectories. Through AAtS, aircraft are 
provided a means to connect to a collection of common aeronautical, 
meteorological, and traffic management information sources from 
multiple services including the FAA, National Weather Service (NWS), 
Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and airports, creating a shared 
and globally interoperable aviation information environment.
    Phase 2 of the AAtS initiative facilitates a common information 
environment supporting flight crew involvement in the collaborative 
decision making process even further. AAtS will not implement a 
specific infrastructure for the creation of the service link to the 
aircraft. The AAtS Demonstrations and Concept development teams will 
define a set of operational and technical recommendations to be used as 
guidance to drive infrastructure development. Furthermore, AAtS 
provides information which is non-critical only.
    The AAtS Phase 2 Working Group Meeting will be a forum for 
discussions regarding the operational needs for a capability such as 
AAtS. Questions to be answered in the next phase of AAtS activities 
include: What information is needed for a more successful operation, 
how the information is used, and what information could the operator 
provide back to the FAA for other operators to base decisions upon. 
Individuals attending the meeting will have an opportunity to 
participate in AAtS Working Group discussions involving Title 14 Code 
of Federal Regulation parts 121, 135 and 91 Operational demonstrations 
with an Electronic Flight Bag application as well as developmental 
discussions regarding AAtS utility in defining, updating, and 
manipulating trajectories. Participant insight is valuable in 
progressing AAtS IP Data Link capabilities into a bi-directional 
exchange of data between ground to ground and air to ground operational 
functionality.
