Marie Bridge Company; Bessemer and Lake Erie Railroad Company; and Pittsburgh and Conneaut Dock Company (collectively, ‘‘CN’’) have petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) for a waiver from certain provisions of 49 CFR 240.111 regarding motor vehicle operation safety conduct data required for the initial certification and recertification of locomotive engineers. The request was assigned Docket Number FRA–2015–0095. The waiver requested would permit CN to initially certify or recertify locomotive engineers for a period of 60 days, and would conform to current provisions under 49 CFR 242.111(c) and (d) for the initial certification and recertification of conductors. CN believes there is no railroad safety basis that exists for not extending this same provision to locomotive engineer certification. A copy of the petition, as well as any written communications concerning the petition, is available for review online at www.regulations.gov and in person at the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Docket Operations Facility, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., W12–140, Washington, DC 20590.

In addition, the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Attorney General, the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of State, and the Secretary of Homeland Security, may designate and block the property and interests in property, subject to U.S. jurisdiction, of persons who are found to be: (1) Materially assisting in, or providing financial or technological support for or to, or providing goods or services in support of, the international narcotics trafficking activities of a person designated pursuant to the Kingpin Act; (2) owned, controlled, or directed by, or acting for or on behalf of, a person designated pursuant to the Kingpin Act; or (3) playing a significant role in international narcotics trafficking.
