WETL submitted information with its petition intended to demonstrate that non-U.S. certified MY 2012 Fisker Karma PC’s, as originally manufactured, conform to many applicable FMVSS in the same manner as their U.S.-certified counterparts, or are capable of being readily altered to conform to those standards.

[Docket No. AB 55 (Sub-No. 748X)]


CSX Transportation, Inc.--Discontinuance of Service Exemption--in 
St. Clair and Clinton Counties, Ill.

    CSX Transportation, Inc. (CSXT), filed a verified notice of 
exemption under 49 CFR pt. 1152 subpart F--Exempt Abandonments and 
Discontinuances of Service to discontinue service over an approximately 
23.9-mile rail line on its Southern Region, Nashville Division, 
Illinois Subdivision between milepost BC 304.00, near Avison, Clinton 
County, Ill., to milepost BC 327.9, near Caseyville, St. Clair County, 
Ill. (the Line). The Line traverses United States Postal Service Zip 
Codes 62232, 62208, 62269, 62254, 62293, and 62216.
    CSXT has certified that: (1) No freight traffic has moved over the 
Line for at least two years; (2) no formal complaint filed by a user of 
rail service on the Line (or by a state or local government entity 
acting on behalf of such user) regarding cessation of service over the 
Line either is pending with the Surface Transportation Board or any 
U.S. District Court or has been decided in favor of a complainant 
within the two-year period; and (3) the requirements at 49 CFR 1105.12 
(newspaper publication), and 49 CFR 1152.50(d)(1) (notice to 
governmental agencies) have been met.
    As a condition to this exemption, any employee adversely affected 
by the discontinuance shall be protected under Oregon Short Line 
Railroad--Abandonment Portion Goshen Branch Between Firth & Ammon, in 
Bingham & Bonneville Counties, Idaho, 360 I.C.C. 91 (1979). To address 
whether this condition adequately protects affected employees, a 
petition for partial revocation under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) must be filed.
    Provided no formal expression of intent to file an offer of 
financial assistance (OFA) to subsidize continued rail service has been 
received, this exemption will become effective on January 9, 2016, 
unless stayed pending reconsideration. Petitions to stay that do not 
involve environmental issues and formal expressions of intent to file 
an OFA to subsidize continued rail service under 49 CFR 1152.27(c)(2) 
\1\ must be filed by December 21, 2015.\2\ Petitions to reopen must be 
filed by December 30, 2015, with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 
E Street, SW., Washington, DC 20423-0001.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Each OFA must be accompanied by the filing fee, which is 
currently set at $1,600. See 49 CFR 1002.2(f)(25).
    \2\ Because this is a discontinuance proceeding and not an 
abandonment, interim trail use/rail banking and public use 
conditions are not appropriate.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A copy of any petition filed with the Board should be sent to 
CSXT's representative: Louis E. Gitomer, Law Offices of Louis E. 
Gitomer, 600 Baltimore Avenue, Suite 301, Towson, MD 21204.
    If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, 
the exemption is void ab initio.
    Because there will be an environmental review during an 
abandonment, this discontinuance does not require an environmental 
review.
