VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:37 Dec 18, 2014 Jkt 235001 Notice of proposed Buy America waiver and request for comment. The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) is providing notice of a request from the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) to waive Buy America requirements for the purchase of components of high-speed track turnouts that do not meet FTA’s Buy America requirements. The LIRR submitted the request in connection with three projects: (1) LIRR’s 2015 State of Good Repair Program; (2) the East Side Access Project; and (3) LIRR’s Jamaica Capacity Improvement Project. Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 5323(j)(3)(A), FTA is providing notice of the waiver request and is seeking public comment before deciding whether to grant the request. If granted, the waiver would apply only to the FTA-funded procurements in LIRR’s 2015 State of Good Repair Program, the East Side Access Project, and LIRR’s Jamaica Capacity Improvement Project, and only to the procurement of components—the turnouts will be manufactured in the United States. This proposed Buy America waiver does not include the turnout components for the Northeast Corridor Congestion Relief Project at Harold Interlocking, which is being addressed in a separate waiver request published by the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), as FRA funds are being used for that project. DATES: Comments must be received by January 20, 2015. FTA will consider late-filed comments to the extent practicable. Please submit your comments by one of the following means, identifying your submissions by docket number FTA–2014–0025: 1. Web site: http:// www.regulations.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Richard L. Wong, FTA AttorneyAdvisor, at (202) 366–4011 or Richard.Wong@dot.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FTA seeks comment on whether it should a grant a non-availability waiver for LIRR’s procurements of turnouts needed for LIRR’s 2015 State of Good Repair Program, the East Side Access Project, and LIRR’s Jamaica Capacity Improvement Project, which are utilizing FTA funding. With certain exceptions, FTA’s Buy America requirements prevent FTA from obligating an amount that may be appropriated to carry out its program for a project unless ‘‘the steel, iron, and manufactured goods used in the project are produced in the United States.’’ 49 U.S.C. 5323(j)(1). A manufactured product is produced in the United States if: (1) all of the manufacturing processes for the product take place in the United States; and (2) all of the components of the product are of U.S. origin. 49 CFR 661.5(d). A component is of U.S. origin if it is manufactured in the United States, regardless of the origin of its subcomponents. 49 CFR 661.5(d)(2). If FTA determines that ‘‘the steel, iron, and goods produced in the United States are not produced in a sufficient and reasonably available amount or are not of a satisfactory quality,’’ then FTA may issue a non-availability waiver. 49 U.S.C. 5323(j)(2)(B); 49 CFR 661.7(c). LIRR is requesting a non-availability waiver for its procurement of turnouts needed for LIRR’s 2015 State of Good Repair Program, the East Side Access Project, and LIRR’s Jamaica Capacity Improvement Project. The turnouts consist of multiple components, including Schwihag roller assemblies, Schwihag plates, ZU1–60 steel switch point rail sections, and movable point frogs, which LIRR asserts are not available and are not manufactured in the United States.
