L. 112–95, 126 Stat. 11), as amended, is not extended by Congress through legislation. The current authorization is set to expire on July 15, 2016. The Department is soliciting applications and nominations for new members of the Committee. DATES: Nominations for ACACP membership must be received on or before June 27, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: sradovich on DSK3TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: Background On May 24, 2012, the Secretary, as mandated by section 411 of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 (Pub. L. 112–95, 126 Stat. 11 (2012)) (2012 FAA Act), established the Advisory Committee for Aviation Consumer Protection (ACACP). The committee’s charter, drafted in VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:00 May 26, 2016 Regulation(s) affected Jkt 238001 Nature of the special permits thereof 172.102(c)(1) Special Provision 130, Part 172 Subparts C, D, and E, 173.185(c), 173.185(d). To modify the special permit to authorize lithium metal batteries with a lithium content greater than 5 grams. accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), as amended, 5 U.S.C. App. 2, sets forth policies for the operation of the advisory committee and is available online at http:// www.facadatabase.gov/committee/ charters.aspx?cid=2448&aid=47. That charter of the ACACP was set to expire on September 30, 2015, but the Airport and Airway Extension Act of 2015 (Pub. L. 114–55, 129 Stat. 522) and then the Airport and Airways Extension Act of 2016 (Pub. L. 114–141, 130 Stat 322) extended the duration of the Committee to July 15, 2016. Since the ACACP has been established, it has held nine meetings and examined a broad range of issues affecting consumers which culminated in the Committee submitting two reports to the Secretary for improving existing aviation consumer protection programs and for establishing new ones, if needed. A third report from the ACACP is currently set to be provided to the Secretary before July 15, 2016. The Department has implemented a number of the recommendations from the ACACP, such as finalizing a rulemaking mandating service animal relief areas, with limited exceptions, be located in the sterile area of each airport terminal.1 The Department has also issued a rule requiring the accessibility of airport kiosks and airline Web sites as recommended by the ACACP.2 Additionally, the Committee recommended that the Department work with the airlines to survey how they define certain terms frequently used in their contracts of carriage and customer service plans. The Department worked with Airlines for America to develop such a document, which it then placed on its Web site to assist consumers with understanding the terms and conditions of their travel. See https:// www.transportation.gov/airconsumer/ common-terms-air-travel. Various recommendations of the Committee, such as ensuring transparency in air carrier pricing, requiring ticket agents to 1 See Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Disability in Programs or Activities Receiving Federal Financial Assistance (U.S. Airports), Final Rule, 80 FR 46508 (August 5, 2015). 2 See Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Disability in Air Travel: Accessibility of Web Sites and Automated Kiosks at U.S. Airports, Final Rule, 78 FR 67882 (November 12, 2013). PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 disclose they do not offer for sale all airlines’ tickets, and expanding the airlines that report quality service data (e.g., on-time performance) to the Department, are all being considered by the Department through rulemaking.3 The ACACP has contributed significantly to the Department’s aviation consumer protection program as it provides a forum for public discussion of important consumer issues and helps air and address issues that do not have simple answers. As mentioned earlier, the statutory termination date for the ACACP was originally established by the 2012 FAA Act as September 30, 2015, but was extended by the Airport and Airway Extension Act of 2015 (Pub. L. 114–55, 129 Stat. 522), and further extended by the Airport and Airway Extension Act of 2016 (Pub. L. 114–141, 130 Stat 322) to the current termination date of July 15, 2016. If Congress extends the termination date of the ACACP through legislation, the Committee will continue as mandated by Congress. If Congress does not extend the ACACP beyond July 15, 2016, the Secretary, under the authority of FACA, will continue the ACACP as a discretionary advisory committee. The Department is currently in the process of updating the ACACP’s charter to provide for this contingency and is making other minor amendments, such as clarifying that the Committee’s work should concern aviation consumer protection issues that fall within the current statutory authority of the Department. Additionally, the Secretary is soliciting applications and nominations for membership to the ACACP. The membership of the committee shall be composed of a representative each of the following: • Air carriers; • Airport operators; • State or local governments with expertise in consumer protection matters; and • Nonprofit public interest groups with expertise in consumer protection matter. This notice requests nominations and applications for members of the ACACP 3 See Airline Pricing Transparency and Other Consumer Protection Issues, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, 79 FR 29970 (May 23, 2014).
