ACTION: Notice of Land-Use Change Application to Amend Grant Agreement Obligations. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to rule and invites public comment on the application for a land-use change authorization effecting approximately 12.2 acres of airport property at the Elko Regional Airport, Elko, Nevada which will provide for an amendment of the SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:43 Oct 01, 2015 Jkt 238001 Grant Agreement Assurance obligation that requires use of airport land for aeronautical purposes. Since the City of Elko, sponsor of the Elko Regional Airport, acquired the land in 1930, the property does not have an aeronautical purpose or planned to be used for an aeronautical purpose. The land-use change will authorize the release of the aeronautical-use obligation from the Grant Assurance Agreement for a proposed long term non-aeronautical commercial development. The 12.2 acres of airport land is identified as ‘‘future commercial’’ on the FAA conditionally approved Airport Layout Plan (ALP). The approximately 12.2 acres of airport property is currently zoned as ‘‘light industrial business park’’ and the land is proposed for retail mall development. The proposed developer will pay the costs to develop, manage, and improve the property for non-aeronautical commercial businesses. The City of Elko will lease the land at fair market value (FMV) to earn revenue for the airport thereby benefiting the airport and serving the interest of civil aviation. The proposed use will be compatible with the airport and will not interfere with the airport or its operation. DATES: Comments must be received on or before November 2, 2015. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Comments on the request may be mailed or delivered to the FAA at the following address Mike N. Williams, Manager, Federal Aviation Administration, Phoenix Airports District Office, Federal Register Comment, 3800 N. Central Avenue, Suite 1025, 10th Floor, Phoenix, Arizona 85012. In addition, one copy of the comment submitted to the FAA must be mailed or delivered to Mr. Mark Gibbs, Airport Director, Elko Regional Airport, 975 Terminal Way, Elko, Nevada 89801. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Wendell H. Ford Aviation Investment and Reform Act for the 21st Century (AIR 21), Public Law 106–181 (Apr. 5, 2000; 114 Stat. 61), this notice must be published in the Federal Register 30 days before the Secretary may waive any condition imposed on a federally obligated airport by surplus property conveyance deeds or grant agreements. The following is a brief overview of the request: The City of Elko, Nevada, owner of the Elko Regional Airport, requested the Federal Aviation Administration to authorize a land-use change on approximately 12.2 acres of airport land at the Elko Regional Airport. The landuse change authorization will amend PO 00000 Frm 00128 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 59847 the Grant Agreement Assurance obligations that require the use of the 12.2 acres of airport land for aviation purposes to allow for long term nonaeronautical use for revenue generating purposes. The City of Elko has owned this portion of land in fee simple since 1930 and was acquired for the airport without any use of federal funding or for noise abatement purposes. The land has been cleared and graded many years ago with no additional encumbrances. With the exception of a portion of the subject land being used for unsecured equipment storage by the Nevada Department of Transportation, the land is vacant and unimproved and has not been used for aeronautical purposes since the parcel of land was acquired. The City of Elko has intended the property for non-aeronautical development because the adjacent topography has made the land unsuitable for most aeronautical use. The parcels of land are located northeast of the secondary runway area, outside of the airport fence line adjacent to Taxiway B and Nevada State Highway 225 (Mountain City Highway). The City of Elko has determined the fair market value of the land and will ensure the FMV rental income will be devoted to airport maintenance, operations and capital projects which will benefit the airport. The reuse of the property will not interfere with the airport or its operation; thereby, serve the interests of civil aviation. Issued in Phoenix, Arizona, on September 20, 2015. Mike N.

ACTION: Notice of final disposition; grant of application for exemption. AGENCY: FMCSA announces its decision to grant the R&R Transportation Group (R&R) an exemption from the minimum 30minute rest break requirement of the Agency’s hours-of-service (HOS) regulations for commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers. FMCSA has analyzed the exemption application and the public comments and has determined that the exemption, subject to the terms and conditions imposed, will achieve a level of safety that is equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be achieved absent such exemption. The exemption is available only to R&R’s drivers engaged in the transportation of materials that by their nature must be attended, such as radioactive materials, pharmaceuticals, and ammunition. The exemption provides these drivers the same regulatory flexibility that the HOS regulations allow drivers transporting explosives, i.e., to use 30 minutes or more of on-duty attendance time to meet the HOS rest break requirements, provided they do not perform any other work during the break. DATES: The exemption is effective October 2, 2015 and expires on October 2, 2017. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Robert Schultz, FMCSA Driver and Carrier Operations Division; Office of Carrier, Driver and Vehicle Safety Standards, FMCSA; Telephone: 202– 366–4325. Email: MCPSD@dot.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background FMCSA has authority under 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315 to grant exemptions from certain parts of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. FMCSA must publish a notice of each exemption request in the Federal Register (49 CFR 381.315(a)). The Agency must provide the public an opportunity to inspect the information relevant to the application, including any safety analyses that have been conducted. The Agency must also provide an opportunity for public comment on the request. PO 00000 Frm 00129 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The Agency reviews safety analyses and public comments submitted, and determines whether granting the exemption would likely achieve a level of safety equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be achieved by the current regulation (49 CFR 381.305). The decision of the Agency must be published in the Federal Register (49 CFR 381.315(b)) with the reasons for denying or granting the application and, if granted, the name of the person or class of persons receiving the exemption, and the regulatory provision from which the exemption is granted. The notice must also specify the effective period and explain the terms and conditions of the exemption. The exemption may be renewed (49 CFR 381.300(b)). On December 27, 2011, FMCSA published a final rule amending the HOS regulations (49 CFR part 395) for drivers of CMVs (76 FR 81133). The final rule included a new provision requiring certain drivers to take a rest break during their duty day. Specifically, the rule states that ‘‘driving is not permitted if more than 8 hours have passed since the end of the driver’s last off-duty or sleeper-berth period of at least 30 minutes’’ [49 CFR 395.3(a)(3)(ii)]. This provision took effect on July 1, 2013. Under the HOS rules, a driver is on duty if he or she is ‘‘performing any other work in the capacity, employ, or service of a motor carrier’’ (§ 395.2). A driver is off duty when relieved of all duty and responsibility for the care and custody of the vehicle, its accessories, and any cargo it may be carrying. However, the Agency has recognized that under certain circumstances it is unsafe for CMVs to be left unattended so that the driver can take 30 minutes off duty. By regulation, FMCSA allows operators of CMVs transporting certain explosives to satisfy the rest-break requirement by using 30 minutes or more of on-duty attendance time providing they perform no other work during the break [49 CFR 395.1(q)]. Drivers employing this provision are required to annotate their duty-status record to indicate that they have used the exception. The Agency has granted temporary exemptions of the type provided by 49 CFR 395.1(q) to drivers transporting security-sensitive radioactive materials (78 FR 32700, May 31, 2013), weapons, munitions, and sensitive/classified cargo (80 FR 20556, April 16, 2015), and oversize/overweight (OS/OW) loads (80 FR 34957, June 18, 2015).
