Amendment to Emergency Relief Exemptions Pursuant to the Reliable Home Heating (RHH) Act
Document Number: 2014-25127
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-10-22
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA adopts, as final, certain amendments to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) required by the Reliable Home Heating (RHH) Act. Currently, the FMCSRs include a provision which enables motor carriers providing direct assistance in responding to an emergency declared by a governor to do so without having to comply with certain Federal safety regulations. However, the duration of the relief is limited to 30 days unless FMCSA extends the exemption. This final rule amends the emergency relief provision in the FMCSRs so that the safety requirements in 49 CFR parts 390-399 will not apply if a Governor: Declares a state of emergency caused by a shortage of residential heating fuel; determines at the end of the 30-day exemption period currently authorized by the regulations that the emergency shortage has not ended; and extends the declaration of emergency for up to 2 additional 30-day periods. Because the rule is a non- discretionary, ministerial action as required by the RHH Act, it is issued without prior notice and opportunity for comment, pursuant to the good cause exception in the Administrative Procedure Act (APA).

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has recently submitted to OMB for review the following proposal for the collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). The NRC hereby informs potential respondents that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and that a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The NRC published a Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment period on this information collection on July 14, 2014. 1. Type of submission, new, revision, or extension: Extension. 2. The title of the information collection: 48 CFR 20 U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Acquisition Regulation (NRCAR). 3. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0169. 4. The form number if applicable: N/A. 5. How often the collection is required: On occasion, one time. 6. Who will be required or asked to report: NRC contractors and potential contractors. 7. An estimate of the number of annual responses: 4,871. 8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 2,473. 9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 20,095 (18,750 reporting plus 1,345 recordkeeping). 10. Abstract: The mandatory requirements of the NRCAR implement and supplement the government-wide Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), and ensure that the regulations governing the procurement of goods and services with the NRC satisfy the particular needs of the agency. Because of differing statutory authorities among Federal agencies, the FAR permits agencies to issue regulation to implement FAR policies and procedures internally to satisfy the specific need of the agency.
