In that document, there were several errors that need to be corrected before the rule becomes effective. This document addresses those errors. DATES: This correction is effective on August 5, 2016. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Cole R. Milliard, Attorney, Office of the Chief Counsel, Enforcement Division, AGC– 300, Federal Aviation Administration, 800 Independence Avenue SW., Washington, DC 20591; telephone (202) 267–3452; email Cole.Milliard@faa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Prior to the July 5 final rule’s publication, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), the Department of Transportation (DOT) agency primarily responsible for developing and enforcing hazardous materials regulations, published its catch-up adjustments for civil penalties, including those for violations of 49 U.S.C. 5123(a)(3). The FAA is amending its catch-up adjustment for 49 U.S.C. 5123(a)(3) to harmonize it with PHMSA’s. Background On July 5, 2016, the FAA published an interim final rule titled ‘‘Revisions to the Civil Penalty Inflation Adjustment Tables’’ (81 FR 43463). The intent of that rule is to implement the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act of 1990 (FCPIAA), Public Law (Pub. L.) 101–410, as amended by the Debt Collection Improvement Act (DCIA) of 1996, Pub. L. 104–134, and the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015 (2015 Act), Pub. L. 114–74, codified at 28 U.S.C. 2461 note. The FCPIAA, DCIA, and the 2015 Act require Federal agencies to adjust minimum and maximum civil penalty amounts for inflation to preserve their deterrent impact. The 2015 Act amended the formula and frequency of inflation adjustments. It required an initial catch-up adjustment in the form of an interim final rule, followed by annual adjustments of penalty amounts. The amount of the adjustment must be made using a strict statutory formula that was discussed in the final rule and is corrected as indicated below. As mentioned above, the FAA’s interim final rule was published on July 5, 2016, and included an inflation adjustment for civil penalties associated with hazardous materials training PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 51079 violations under 49 U.S.C. 5123(a)(3). On June 29, 2016, prior to the FAA’s civil penalty inflation adjustment publication, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), the DOT agency primarily responsible for developing and enforcing hazardous materials regulations, also published its catch-up adjustments for civil penalties, including those for violations of 49 U.S.C. 5123(a)(3). PHMSA, however, came up with a different adjustment to the minimum penalty for training than the FAA. PHMSA read technical amendments made to section 5123(a)(3) in 2012 to be adjusting the minimum penalty back down from a 2009 PHMSA inflation adjustment. See Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP–21), Pub. L. 112–141, 33010, 126 Stat. 405, 837, (2012); 74 FR 68701 (Dec. 29, 2009). It therefore concluded that 2012 was the year the minimum penalty was established or adjusted. FAA concluded that 2005 was the correct year upon which to base adjustments because Congress established the $450 minimum that year and did not change it in its 2012 amendments. Compare Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU), Pub. L. 109–59, 7120, 119 Stat. 1144, 1905 (2005) with MAP–21, 126 Stat. at 837. Because PHMSA is the primary DOT agency in the area of hazardous materials safety, and because its calculation is reasonable, the FAA is correcting its catch-up adjustment to harmonize it with PHMSA’s. The FAA is also making technical corrections to its interim final rule. First, it is correcting the effective date noted in the table included in 14 CFR 13.301(c), to reflect the correct effective date of August 5, 2016 (not August 1, 2016). Second, the word ‘‘established’’ is replacing the word ‘‘set’’ when used in reference to the ‘‘catch-up adjustment’’ formula provided by the 2015 Act to make the text of the interim final rule consistent with the statutory text of the 2015 Act. Finally, the FAA is correcting the reference to ‘‘section 5123’’ in the hazmat adjustment example for 49 U.S.C. 5123(a)(1), provided in the background section of the interim final rule, to specifically reference section 5123(a)(1). Correction In FR Doc. 2016–7004, beginning on page 43463 in the Federal Register of July 5, 2016, make the following corrections: 1. On page 43464, in the second column, under the heading ‘‘Background’’, in the second paragraph, E:\FR\FM\03AUR1.SGM 03AUR1 51080 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 149 / Wednesday, August 3, 2016 / Rules and Regulations correct the seventh line by replacing the word ‘‘set’’ with ‘‘established’’. 2. On page 43464, in the third column, correct the ninth line from the top by replacing the word ‘‘set’’ with ‘‘established’’. 3. On page 43464, in the third column, correct subparagraph (1) by replacing the word ‘‘set’’ with ‘‘established’’ in both places it is used, replacing the word ‘‘reset’’ with ‘‘adjusted’’ and replacing the words ‘‘Section 5123’’ with ‘‘Section 5123(a)(1)’’. 4. On page 43464, correct the heading of the second column of the table by replacing the word ‘‘set’’ with ‘‘established’’. 5. On page 43464, correct the heading of the third column of the table by replacing the word ‘‘set’’ with ‘‘established’’. 6.

On page 43464, correct the fourth column of the table by replacing ‘‘1.19397’’ with ‘‘1.02819’’ in the third line (referencing 49 U.S.C. Statute 5123(a)(3)). 8. On page 43464, correct the fifth column of the table by replacing ‘‘537’’ with ‘‘463’’ in the third line (referencing 49 U.S.C. Statute 5123(a)(3)). § 13.301 [Corrected] 9.

Revisions to the Civil Penalty Inflation Adjustment Tables; 
Correction

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Interim final rule; correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The FAA is correcting an interim final rule titled ``Revisions 
to the Civil Penalty Inflation Adjustment Tables'' that it published in 
the Federal Register on July 5, 2016. That interim final rule was the 
catch-up inflation adjustment to civil penalty amounts that may be 
imposed for violations of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) 
regulations, as required by the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation 
Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015. In that document, there were 
several errors that need to be corrected before the rule becomes 
effective. This document addresses those errors.

DATES: This correction is effective on August 5, 2016.

the Chief Counsel, Enforcement Division, AGC-300, Federal Aviation 
Administration, 800 Independence Avenue SW., Washington, DC 20591; 
telephone (202) 267-3452; email Cole.Milliard@faa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Prior to the July 5 final rule's 
publication, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration 
(PHMSA), the Department of Transportation (DOT) agency primarily 
responsible for developing and enforcing hazardous materials 
regulations, published its catch-up adjustments for civil penalties, 
including those for violations of 49 U.S.C. 5123(a)(3). The FAA is 
amending its catch-up adjustment for 49 U.S.C. 5123(a)(3) to harmonize 
it with PHMSA's.

Background

    On July 5, 2016, the FAA published an interim final rule titled 
``Revisions to the Civil Penalty Inflation Adjustment Tables'' (81 FR 
43463). The intent of that rule is to implement the Federal Civil 
Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act of 1990 (FCPIAA), Public Law (Pub. 
L.) 101-410, as amended by the Debt Collection Improvement Act (DCIA) 
of 1996, Pub. L. 104-134, and the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation 
Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015 (2015 Act), Pub. L. 114-74, 
codified at 28 U.S.C. 2461 note.
    The FCPIAA, DCIA, and the 2015 Act require Federal agencies to 
adjust minimum and maximum civil penalty amounts for inflation to 
preserve their deterrent impact. The 2015 Act amended the formula and 
frequency of inflation adjustments. It required an initial catch-up 
adjustment in the form of an interim final rule, followed by annual 
adjustments of penalty amounts. The amount of the adjustment must be 
made using a strict statutory formula that was discussed in the final 
rule and is corrected as indicated below.
    As mentioned above, the FAA's interim final rule was published on 
July 5, 2016, and included an inflation adjustment for civil penalties 
associated with hazardous materials training violations under 49 U.S.C. 
5123(a)(3). On June 29, 2016, prior to the FAA's civil penalty 
inflation adjustment publication, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials 
Safety Administration (PHMSA), the DOT agency primarily responsible for 
developing and enforcing hazardous materials regulations, also 
published its catch-up adjustments for civil penalties, including those 
for violations of 49 U.S.C. 5123(a)(3). PHMSA, however, came up with a 
different adjustment to the minimum penalty for training than the FAA. 
PHMSA read technical amendments made to section 5123(a)(3) in 2012 to 
be adjusting the minimum penalty back down from a 2009 PHMSA inflation 
adjustment. See Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-
21), Pub. L. 112-141, 33010, 126 Stat. 405, 837, (2012); 74 FR 68701 
(Dec. 29, 2009). It therefore concluded that 2012 was the year the 
minimum penalty was established or adjusted. FAA concluded that 2005 
was the correct year upon which to base adjustments because Congress 
established the $450 minimum that year and did not change it in its 
2012 amendments. Compare Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient 
Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU), Pub. L. 
109-59, 7120, 119 Stat. 1144, 1905 (2005) with MAP-21, 126 Stat. at 
837. Because PHMSA is the primary DOT agency in the area of hazardous 
materials safety, and because its calculation is reasonable, the FAA is 
correcting its catch-up adjustment to harmonize it with PHMSA's.
    The FAA is also making technical corrections to its interim final 
rule. First, it is correcting the effective date noted in the table 
included in 14 CFR 13.301(c), to reflect the correct effective date of 
August 5, 2016 (not August 1, 2016). Second, the word ``established'' 
is replacing the word ``set'' when used in reference to the ``catch-up 
adjustment'' formula provided by the 2015 Act to make the text of the 
interim final rule consistent with the statutory text of the 2015 Act. 
Finally, the FAA is correcting the reference to ``section 5123'' in the 
hazmat adjustment example for 49 U.S.C. 5123(a)(1), provided in the 
background section of the interim final rule, to specifically reference 
section 5123(a)(1).
