Download as PDF 52518 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 152 / Monday, August 8, 2016 / Notices mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES drivers will exercise more caution than those who meet the standards. Roy Hegland stated that he is in favor of granting the exemptions based on the professional experience of his daughter who has a vision deficiency. An anonymous commenter stated that they are against granting the exemptions because of safety concerns related to the vision deficiencies of the drivers, specifically regarding depth perception of the drivers and larger blind spots while operating CMVs. As stated in section four of this notice, medical evaluations from each driver, their driving records, driving experience with the vision deficiency, and safety concerns, are all considered when determining if an exemption should be granted. Studies pertaining to the efficacy of these considerations are also referenced in section four. VI. Conclusion Based upon its evaluation of the 22 exemption applications, FMCSA exempts the following drivers from the vision requirement in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10), subject to the requirements cited above (49 CFR 391.64(b)): Lee R. Boykin (TX) Donald Carrillo (NM) Carl F. Cryer (AL) Steven W. Day (MO) Roger M. Dunaway (KY) Horace N. Goss (TX) Matt A. Guilmain (NH) Hugo N. Gutierrez (IN) Edward R. Hunt (NC) William J. Kanaris (NY) Harvey Klein (NJ) Ronnie L. McHugh (KS) Walter J. Musty (MN) John O’Boyle (PA) Michael L. Robinson (MO) Donald P. Ruckinger (PA) Mark A. Sanders (OK) Michael J. Scarano (NJ) Edward P. Schrader II (WA) Charles H. Strople (MA) Eddie Walker (NC) Trent Wipf (SC) In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315, each exemption will be valid for 2 years unless revoked earlier by FMCSA. The exemption will be revoked if: (1) The person fails to comply with the terms and conditions of the exemption; (2) the exemption has resulted in a lower level of safety than was maintained before it was granted; or (3) continuation of the exemption would not be consistent with the goals and objectives of 49 U.S.C. 31136 and 31315. If the exemption is still effective at the end of the 2-year period, the person may apply to FMCSA for a renewal under procedures in effect at that time.

ACTION: Notice AGENCY: This notice provides the most current revisions to the National Hazardous Materials Route Registry (NHMRR) and procedures to facilitate the update of the NHMRR by State and Tribal government routing agencies. The NHMRR is a listing, as reported by States and Tribal governments, of all designated and restricted road and preferred highway routes for transportation of highway route controlled quantities (HRCQ) of Class 7 radioactive materials (RAM) (HRCQ/ RAM) and non-radioactive hazardous materials (NRHMs). DATES: Effective date: August 8, 2016. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Vincent Babich (202) 366–4871, or vincent.babich@dot.gov, Hazardous Materials Division, Office of Enforcement and Compliance, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE., Washington, DC 20590. Office hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., E.T., Monday through Friday, except for Federal holidays. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background Paragraphs (a)(2) and (b) of section 5112 of title 49, United States Code (U.S.C.) permit States and Tribal governments to designate and limit highway routes over which HRCQ/RAM and NRHM may be transported, provided that the State or Tribal government complies with standards prescribed by the Secretary of Transportation (the Secretary) and meets publication requirements in section 5112(c). To establish standards under paragraph (b), the Secretary must consult with the States, and, under section 5112(c), coordinate with the States to publish periodically a list of currently effective HRCQ/RAM and NRHM highway routing designations and restrictions. The requirements that States and Tribal governments must PO 00000 Frm 00122 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 follow to establish, maintain, or enforce routing designations for the transport of placardable quantities of NRHM are set forth in 49 CFR part 397, subpart C. Subpart D of part 397 sets out the requirements for designating preferred routes for HRCQ/RAM shipments as an alternative, or in addition, to Interstate System highways. For HRCQ/RAM shipments, § 397.101 defines a preferred route as an Interstate Highway for which no alternative route is designated by the State; a route specifically designated by the State; or both. See § 397.65 for the definition of ‘‘NRHM’’ and ‘‘routing designations.’’ Under a delegation from the Secretary,1 FMCSA has authority to implement 49 U.S.C. 5112. Currently, 49 CFR part 397, subpart C, (Routing of NRHM) and subpart D (Routing of Class 7 RAM) address the routing requirements and procedures that State and tribal government are required to follow. Section 397.73 establishes public information and reporting requirements for NRHM. States or Tribal governments are required to furnish information regarding any new or changed routes to FMCSA within 60 days after establishment. Under 49 CFR 397.103, a State routing designation for HRCQ/ RAM routes (preferred routes) as an alternative, or in addition, to an Interstate System highway, is effective when the authorized routing agency provides FMCSA with written notification, FMCSA acknowledges receipt in writing, and the route is published in FMCSA’s Hazardous Material Route Registry. The Office of Management and Budget has approved these collections of information under control number 2126–0014, Transportation of Hazardous Materials, Highway Routing. This notice serves only to provide the most current updates to the NHMRR, and to communicate to States and Tribal government routing agencies procedures to facilitate timely reporting and efficient update of the NHMRR as required by 49 U.S.C. 5112 and 49 CFR part 397; it does not establish any new public information and reporting requirements. Procedural Changes Section 33013 of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act of 2012 (MAP–21) [Pub. L. 112–141, July 6, 2012, 126 Stat. 405, 839] amended 49 U.S.C. 5112(c), which addresses the form, manner, and timetable for State and Tribal Governments to issue and update routing information for 1 49 E:\FR\FM\08AUN1.SGM CFR 1.87(d)(2). 08AUN1 52519 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 152 / Monday, August 8, 2016 / Notices commercial motor vehicles transporting hazardous material in commerce for which DOT regulations require placarding of the vehicle .In October 2014, FMCSA published a Technical Amendments Rule that included amendments to 49 CFR 397.69 to address section 33013 of the statute [79 FR 59450; October 2, 2014]. Among the amendments was a State reporting requirement to include the name of the agency responsible for the highway route designations, and another to clarify that any State- or Tribalgovernment-designated route is effective only after publication in the NHMRR. This notice further addresses the form and manner for updating this information by establishing a procedure for updating the NHMRR in accordance with the statute and regulations.

National Hazardous Materials Route Registry Revisions and 
Procedures

AGENCY: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), Department 
of Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Notice

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

SUMMARY: This notice provides the most current revisions to the 
National Hazardous Materials Route Registry (NHMRR) and procedures to 
facilitate the update of the NHMRR by State and Tribal government 
routing agencies. The NHMRR is a listing, as reported by States and 
Tribal governments, of all designated and restricted road and preferred 
highway routes for transportation of highway route controlled 
quantities (HRCQ) of Class 7 radioactive materials (RAM) (HRCQ/RAM) and 
non-radioactive hazardous materials (NRHMs).

DATES: Effective date: August 8, 2016.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: 
    Mr. Vincent Babich (202) 366-4871, or vincent.babich@dot.gov, 
Hazardous Materials Division, Office of Enforcement and Compliance, 
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE., 
Washington, DC 20590. Office hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., E.T., 
Monday through Friday, except for Federal holidays.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Paragraphs (a)(2) and (b) of section 5112 of title 49, United 
States Code (U.S.C.) permit States and Tribal governments to designate 
and limit highway routes over which HRCQ/RAM and NRHM may be 
transported, provided that the State or Tribal government complies with 
standards prescribed by the Secretary of Transportation (the Secretary) 
and meets publication requirements in section 5112(c). To establish 
standards under paragraph (b), the Secretary must consult with the 
States, and, under section 5112(c), coordinate with the States to 
publish periodically a list of currently effective HRCQ/RAM and NRHM 
highway routing designations and restrictions. The requirements that 
States and Tribal governments must follow to establish, maintain, or 
enforce routing designations for the transport of placardable 
quantities of NRHM are set forth in 49 CFR part 397, subpart C. Subpart 
D of part 397 sets out the requirements for designating preferred 
routes for HRCQ/RAM shipments as an alternative, or in addition, to 
Interstate System highways. For HRCQ/RAM shipments, Sec.  397.101 
defines a preferred route as an Interstate Highway for which no 
alternative route is designated by the State; a route specifically 
designated by the State; or both. See Sec.  397.65 for the definition 
of ``NRHM'' and ``routing designations.''
    Under a delegation from the Secretary,\1\ FMCSA has authority to 
implement 49 U.S.C. 5112.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ 49 CFR 1.87(d)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Currently, 49 CFR part 397, subpart C, (Routing of NRHM) and 
subpart D (Routing of Class 7 RAM) address the routing requirements and 
procedures that State and tribal government are required to follow. 
Section 397.73 establishes public information and reporting 
requirements for NRHM. States or Tribal governments are required to 
furnish information regarding any new or changed routes to FMCSA within 
60 days after establishment. Under 49 CFR 397.103, a State routing 
designation for HRCQ/RAM routes (preferred routes) as an alternative, 
or in addition, to an Interstate System highway, is effective when the 
authorized routing agency provides FMCSA with written notification, 
FMCSA acknowledges receipt in writing, and the route is published in 
FMCSA's Hazardous Material Route Registry. The Office of Management and 
Budget has approved these collections of information under control 
number 2126-0014, Transportation of Hazardous Materials, Highway 
Routing. This notice serves only to provide the most current updates to 
the NHMRR, and to communicate to States and Tribal government routing 
agencies procedures to facilitate timely reporting and efficient update 
of the NHMRR as required by 49 U.S.C. 5112 and 49 CFR part 397; it does 
not establish any new public information and reporting requirements.

commercial motor vehicles transporting hazardous material in commerce 
for which DOT regulations require placarding of the vehicle .In October 
2014, FMCSA published a Technical Amendments Rule that included 
amendments to 49 CFR 397.69 to address section 33013 of the statute [79 
FR 59450; October 2, 2014]. Among the amendments was a State reporting 
requirement to include the name of the agency responsible for the 
highway route designations, and another to clarify that any State- or 
Tribal-government-designated route is effective only after publication 
in the NHMRR. This notice further addresses the form and manner for 
updating this information by establishing a procedure for updating the 
NHMRR in accordance with the statute and regulations.

Updates to the NHMRR

    The most up-to-date version of the NHMRR, was published in the 
Federal Register on April 29, 2015 (80 FR 23860) and can be accessed on 
the internet at: http://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/regulations/hazardous-materials/national-hazardous-materials-route-registry. Further, this 
Web page provides a link to http://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/regulations/hazardous-materials/national-hazardous-materials-route-registry-state 
which provides the Route Registry listing of each individual State and 
Tribal government as well as information on the official routing 
agency. This information, available for use by the routing agencies as 
well as the general public, is presented, in three formats; a 
spreadsheet, a PDF file, and as available, an interactive map. In 
addition, FMCSA has established an internet mailbox at 
hmrouting@dot.gov to facilitate communication with routing agencies.
    While the route designation reporting requirements of 49 CFR 397.73 
and 397.103 do not provide a specific procedure to follow whenever 
there is change in routing designations, the FMCSA is providing the 
following procedure to facilitate State and Tribal government routing 
agencies in updating their Route Registry listing:
    1. From http://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/regulations/hazardous-materials/national-hazardous-materials-route-registry-state, open the appropriate 
Route Registry spreadsheet for your jurisdiction.
    2. Modify the spreadsheet as necessary following the instructions 
on the Web page and the spreadsheet.
    3. Revisions made to the spreadsheet cannot be saved directly to 
the Web page. The revised spreadsheet must be saved to a different 
location.
    4. Forward the revised spreadsheet file as an attachment to an 
email to hmrouting@dot.gov; Or forward a printout of the revised 
spreadsheet via certified mail (return receipt requested) to FMCSA, 
Office of Enforcement and Compliance (MC-EC), 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE., 
Washington, DC 20590-0001. Attention: National Hazardous Materials 
Route Registry.
    5. FMCSA will acknowledge via email the receipt of all changes 
received via the ``HM Routing'' internet mailbox.
    6. FMCSA will publish the revisions as a Notice in the Federal 
Register and incorporate the revisions, as applicable, into the
