SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:41 Apr 24, 2015 Jkt 235001 Background In 2012, pursuant to section 415 of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012, 49 U.S.C. 42301, (‘‘the Act’’) U.S. carriers operating scheduled passenger service or public charter service using any aircraft with a design capacity of 30 or more seats, and airport operators of large hub, medium hub, small hub, or non-hub U.S. airports were required to submit contingency plans for lengthy tarmac delay plans to the Secretary of Transportation for review and approval by May 14, 2012. Covered carriers and airports submitted their tarmac delay plans by the statutory deadline of May 14, 2012, and within 60 days of receipt of a tarmac delay plan, the Enforcement Office reviewed, approved, or, if necessary, required modifications to submitted plans. The Enforcement Office completed the process on August 23, 2012, after reviewing, requesting modifications, and approving 451 plans. The purpose of this notice is to address the Act’s recurring ‘‘updates’’ provision, 49 U.S.C. 42301(d)(1), which requires covered air carriers to resubmit updated plans every three years to the Secretary for review and approval.1 As such, covered carriers are required to update their plans and submit the updated plan for review and approval by May 14, 2015. The submission and review process will be identical to the process used in May 2012. Similar to 2012, the Department’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) has identified a preliminary list of those carriers that the Department believes to be covered by the statute. The preliminary list can be found on the Department’s Aviation Consumer Protection Division Web site at www.dot.gov/airconsumer/flight-delays. Any U.S. carrier on the referenced list that believes it is not covered by the statute and should not be on the list should notify one of the Department contacts listed above as soon as possible. Similarly, if any U.S. carrier believes it is covered by the statute but does not appear on the list, that carrier should notify one of the Department contacts noted above. Regarding the submission of updated plans, we request that carriers submit their plans through the established Web site: https:// filingtarmacdelayplan.dot.gov. Most covered carriers already have an account created, but for any questions (e.g., forgotten usernames or passwords), 1 Airports are also required to submit updated plans on a recurring basis. 49 U.S.C. 42301(d)(2). The requirement for airports is every five years, thus the next submission deadline for covered airports will occur in May 2017. PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23329 please contact one of the Department contacts noted above. If a carrier needs to register for the first time and create an account, click on the hyperlink titled ‘‘Create Account to Submit Tarmac Delay Contingency Plan’’ in the blue sign-in box on the home page of the established Web site. For further reference, more detailed instructions regarding registering an account and submitting plans can be found at www.dot.gov/airconsumer/flight-delays. See May 2, 2012 Notice. Pursuant to the Act, the Enforcement Office will have 60 days from receipt of a plan to review and approve a plan or, if necessary, require modifications to the updated plan. 49 U.S.C. 42301(e)(1). If the Enforcement Office fails to approve or require modifications to an updated plan within the 60-day timeframe, the plan shall be deemed approved. 49 U.S.C. 42301(e)(2). To the extent carriers do not have any updates for their plans, the Enforcement Office will accept resubmission of the same plan. The language of the statute is clear, ‘‘an air carrier shall update each emergency contingency plan submitted by the carrier [] every 3 years and submit the update to the Secretary for review and approval.’’ 49 U.S.C. 42301(d)(1).

DOT.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: In accordance with statutory requirements, PHMSA is publishing 
a notice of delay in processing the American Trucking Associations, 
Inc.'s (ATA) application for a preemption determination concerning 
requirements of the New York City Fire Department for a permit to 
transport certain hazardous materials by motor vehicle through New York 
City, or for transshipment from New York City, and the fee for the 
permit. PHMSA is conducting fact-finding and legal analysis in response 
to the request, and is delaying issuance of its determination in order 
to allow time for appropriate consideration of the issues raised by the 
application.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Vincent Lopez, Office of Chief Counsel 
(PHC-10), Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, U.S.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ATA applied for an administrative 
determination concerning whether Federal hazardous material 
transportation law, 49 U.S.C. 5101 et seq., preempts requirements of 
the New York City Fire Department for a permit to transport certain 
hazardous materials by motor vehicle through New York City, or for 
transshipment from New York City, and the fee for the permit. PHMSA 
published notice of ATA's application in the Federal Register on April 
17, 2014. 79 FR 21838.
    Title 49 U.S.C. 5125(d)(1) requires PHMSA to issue a decision on an 
application for a preemption determination ``within 180 days after

[[Page 23329]]

the date of the publication of the notice of having received such 
application, or the Secretary shall publish a statement in the Federal 
Register of the reason why the Secretary's decision on the application 
is delayed, along with an estimate of the additional time necessary 
before a decision is made.''
    ATA's application for a preemption determination is still under 
consideration by PHMSA. The Agency is currently conducting fact-finding 
and legal analysis in response to the application. Because of this 
additional fact-finding and legal analysis, it was impracticable to 
issue a decision within the 180-day timeframe. In order to allow time 
for full consideration of the issues raised by the application, PHMSA 
delays issuance of its determination, and estimates a decision will be 
published in approximately 120 days.
