AppalCART, the transportation authority serving all of Watauga County, used the location as an administrative and maintenance facility from 1981– 2013 (32 yrs). AppalCART can no longer use the property because construction on a new administrative and maintenance facility was completed in August 2013. Watauga County will be utilizing the property as a County maintenance department. Watauga County is charged with maintaining all county vehicles and facilities, including snow removal. This transfer would provide a number of benefits to the county and its residents. The site is more centrally located than the current location of the County maintenance department; the new location would allow quicker and more efficient dispatch of maintenance crews for snow removal and other services to County facilities. The interior space at this property will allow maintenance equipment and vehicles to be sheltered and maintained indoors, saving them from the wear currently experienced due to the harsh climate of the area. Also, the site and facilities have adequate space for other county usage, such as storage for other departments and a possible impound lot for the Sheriff’s Office. The transfer will allow the property to be put to good use. The County has agreed to ensure that this use will be maintained for no less than five (5) years. DATES: Effective Date: Any Federal agency interested in acquiring the facility must notify the FTA Region IV office of its interest no later than 30 days from the date of publication of the Federal Register notice. ADDRESSES: Interested parties should notify the Regional Office by writing to Yvette G. Taylor, Regional Administrator, Federal Transit Administration, 230 Peachtree NW., Suite 1400, Atlanta, GA 30303. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Micah M. Miller, Regional Counsel, (404) 865–5474. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background 49 U.S.C. 5334(h) provides guidance on the transfer of capital assets. Specifically, if a recipient of FTA assistance decides an asset acquired under this chapter at least in part with that assistance is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was acquired, the Secretary of Transportation may authorize the recipient to transfer the asset to a local governmental authority VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:32 Mar 30, 2015 Jkt 235001 to be used for a public purpose with no further obligation to the Government. 49 U.S.C. 5334(h)(1). Determinations The Secretary may authorize a transfer for a public purpose other than mass transportation only if the Secretary decides: (A) The asset will remain in public use for at least 5 years after the date the asset is transferred; (B) There is no purpose eligible for assistance under this chapter for which the asset should be used; (C) The overall benefit of allowing the transfer is greater than the interest of the Government in liquidation and return of the financial interest of the Government in the asset, after considering fair market value and other factors; and (D) Through an appropriate screening or survey process, that there is no interest in acquiring the asset for Government use if the asset is a facility or land. Federal Interest in Acquiring Land or Facility This document implements the requirements of 49 U.S.C. 5334(h)(1)(D) of the Federal Transit Laws. Accordingly, FTA hereby provides notice of the availability of the facility further described below. Any Federal agency interested in acquiring the affected facility should promptly notify the FTA. If no Federal agency is interested in acquiring the existing facility, FTA will make certain that the other requirements specified in 49 U.S.C. 5334(h)(1)(A) through (C) are met before permitting the asset to be transferred. Additional Description of Land or Facility The subject property is identified as parcel identification number 2910–23– 0273–000 by the Watauga County Tax Supervisor’s office. The subject property contains 1.549-acres improved with a one-story metal & brick garage/office/ warehouse building and a one-story brick equipment vehicle wash building, both in fair condition. Site improvements include asphalt pavement, chain-link fencing, and landscaping. The subject was formerly used as an office and maintenance facility for AppalCART, a public transportation system serving Watauga County.

ACTION: Notice of final disposition. AGENCY: FMCSA announces its decision to grant requests from 3 individuals for exemptions from the regulatory requirement that interstate SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:32 Mar 30, 2015 Jkt 235001 commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers have ‘‘no established medical history or clinical diagnosis of epilepsy or any other condition which is likely to cause loss of consciousness or any loss of ability to control a CMV.’’ The regulation and the associated advisory criteria published in the Code of Federal Regulations as the ‘‘Instructions for Performing and Recording Physical Examinations’’ have resulted in numerous drivers being prohibited from operating CMVs in interstate commerce based on the fact that they have had one or more seizures and are taking antiseizure medication, rather than an individual analysis of their circumstances by a qualified medical examiner. The Agency concluded that granting exemptions for these CMV drivers will provide a level of safety that is equivalent to or greater than the level of safety maintained without the exemptions. FMCSA grants exemptions that will allow these 3 individuals to operate CMVs in interstate commerce for a 2-year period. The exemptions preempt State laws and regulations and may be renewed. DATES: The exemptions are effective March 31, 2015. The exemptions expire on March 31, 2017. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Charles A.

PO 00000 Frm 00115 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 17139 B. Background Under 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315(b), FMCSA may grant an exemption from the safety regulations for a 2-year period if it finds ‘‘such exemption would likely achieve a level of safety that is equivalent to or greater than the level that would be achieved absent such exemption.’’ The statute also allows the Agency to renew exemptions at the end of the 2-year period. FMCSA grants 3 individuals an exemption from the regulatory requirement in section 391.41(b)(8), to allow these individuals who take antiseizure medication to operate CMVs in interstate commerce for a 2-year period. The Agency’s decision on these exemption applications is based on an individualized assessment of each applicant’s medical information, including the root cause of the respective seizure(s), the length of time elapsed since the individual’s last seizure, and each individual’s treatment regimen. In addition, the Agency reviewed each applicant’s driving record found in the Commercial Driver’s License Information System (CDLIS) 1 for commercial driver’s license (CDL) holders, and interstate and intrastate inspections recorded in Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS).2 For non-CDL holders, the Agency reviewed the driving records from the State licensing agency. The Agency acknowledges the potential consequences of a driver experiencing a seizure while operating a CMV. However, the Agency believes the drivers covered by the exemptions granted here have demonstrated that they are unlikely to have a seizure and their medical condition does not pose a risk to public safety. In reaching the decision to grant these exemption requests, the Agency considered both current medical literature and information and the 2007 recommendations of the Agency’s Medical Expert Panel (MEP). The Agency previously gathered evidence for potential changes to the regulation at 49 CFR 391.41(b)(8) by conducting a comprehensive review of scientific literature that was compiled into the 1 Commercial Driver License Information System (CDLIS) is an information system that allows the exchange of commercial driver licensing information among all the States. CDLIS includes the databases of fifty-one licensing jurisdictions and the CDLIS Central Site, all connected by a telecommunications network. 2 Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) is an information system that captures data from field offices through SAFETYNET, CAPRI, and other sources. It is a source for FMCSA inspection, crash, compliance review, safety audit, and registration data. E:\FR\FM\31MRN1.SGM 31MRN1
