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. On June 2, 2014, the comment period closed without any interested parties submitting comments. On April 27, 2015, we published a notice of delay in processing ATA’s application in order to conduct additional fact-finding and legal analysis in response to the application. 80 FR 23328. In order to ensure PHMSA has all of the relevant information before making a determination, we sent a letter to the FDNY and requested that it submit comments as to whether Federal hazardous material transportation law preempts the New York City requirements that are the subject of this proceeding. On August 20, 2015, the FDNY submitted its comments on ATA’s application. Therefore, on October 1, 2015, we published a notice announcing that we were reopening the comment period in the proceeding to provide interested parties the VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:00 Nov 03, 2015 Jkt 238001 opportunity to address any of the issues raised by the FDNY in its comments. 80 FR 59244. On October 21, 2015, ATA asked us for an extension of time in which to file comments, and after review of ATA’s request, we have granted its request. Issued in Washington, DC, on October 29, 2015.
