If questions arise concerning the precise relationship of specific properties to noise exposure contours depicted on a noise exposure map submitted under section 47503 of the Act, it should be noted that the FAA is not involved in any way in determining the relative locations of specific properties with regard to the depicted noise contours, or in interpreting the noise exposure maps to resolve questions concerning, for example, which properties should be covered by the provisions of section 47506 of the Act. These functions are inseparable from the ultimate land use control and planning responsibilities of local government. These local responsibilities are not changed in any way under Part 150 or through FAA’s review of noise exposure maps. Therefore, the responsibility for the detailed overlaying of noise exposure contours onto the map depicting properties on the surface rests exclusively with the airport operator that submitted those maps, or with those public agencies and planning agencies with which consultation is required under section 47503 of the Act. The FAA has relied on the certification by the airport operator, under section 150.21 of FAR Part 150, that the statutorily required consultation has been accomplished. Preliminary review of the submitted noise compatibility program for Akron-Canton Airport indicates that it conforms to the requirements for the submittal of noise compatibility programs, but that further review will be necessary prior to approval or disapproval of the program. The formal review period, limited by law to a maximum of 180 days, will be completed on or before January 18, 2017. A public hearing was held on September 17, 2014 at the Akron-Canton Airport Terminal Building, 2nd Floor. The FAA’s detailed evaluation will be conducted under the provisions of 14 CFR part 150, section 150.33. The primary considerations in the evaluation process are whether the proposed measures may reduce the level of aviation safety, create an undue burden on interstate or foreign commerce, or be reasonably consistent with obtaining the goal of reducing existing non-compatible land uses and preventing the introduction of additional non-compatible land uses. Interested persons are invited to comment on the proposed program with specific reference to these factors. All comments, other than those properly addressed to local land use authorities; will be considered by the FAA to the extent practicable.

Legal Basis Before operating for hire in interstate commerce, a motor carrier must obtain commercial registration under 49 U.S.C. 13902 and comply with the requirements of § 13902(a)(1). To provide transportation of HHG, a motor carrier must also comply with the requirements of § 13902(a)(2). However, under 49 U.S.C. 13541(a), the Secretary of Transportation ‘‘shall exempt a person, class of persons, or a transaction or service from the application, in whole or in part, of a provision of this part [part B of subtitle IV of title 49, United States Code, i.e., 49 U.S.C. chapters 131–149], or use this exemption authority to modify the application of a provision of this part as it applies to such person, class, transaction, or service, when the Secretary . . . finds that the application of that provision—(1) is not necessary to carry out the transportation policy of section 13101; (2) is not needed to protect shippers from the abuse of market power or that the transaction or service is of limited scope; and (3) is in the public interest.’’ Nonetheless, ‘‘The exemption authority under this section may not be used to relieve a person from the application of, and compliance with, any law, rule, regulation, standard, or order pertaining to cargo loss and damages, insurance, [or] safety fitness . . .’’ [49 U.S.C. 13541(e)(1)]. The Secretary’s authority to enforce 49 U.S.C. 13902 and 13541 have been delegated to FMCSA by 49 CFR 1.87(a)(5) and 1.87(a)(3), respectively.
