Central of Georgia Railroad Company-Abandonment Exemption-in Newton County, Ga., 84673-84674 [2016-28295]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 226 / Wednesday, November 23, 2016 / Notices implementation period of the proposal from one year to 18 months. The Commission finds that requiring members to include a reference or hyperlink to a security-specific TRACE Web page and include the time of trade on all retail customer confirmations is responsive to commenters’ requests for harmonization of the FINRA Proposal and MSRB Proposal and therefore helped the Commission find that the proposed rule change, as modified by Amendment No. 1, is consistent with Section 15A(b)(6) of the Act,244 which requires, among other things, that FINRA’s rules be designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and equitable principles of trade, and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest, and Section 15A(b)(9) of the Act,245 which requires, among other things, that FINRA’s rules do not impose any burden on competition not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. The Commission notes that the addition of the term ‘‘offsetting’’ to the rule is solely a clarification for the avoidance of doubt and that the change does not alter the substance of the rule. Furthermore, extension of the implementation period of the proposal from one year to 18 months is appropriate and responsive to the operational and implementation concerns raised by commenters. The Commission also notes that after consideration of the comments the MSRB received on its proposal to require a security-specific hyperlink to EMMA and the execution time of the transaction, the MSRB amended its proposal in a manner that is identical to the Amendment No. 1 that FINRA has filed.246 The Commission notes that it today has approved the MSRB Proposal, as modified by MSRB Amendment No. 1, and believes that in the interests of promoting efficiency in the implementation of both proposals, it is appropriate to approve FINRA’s proposal, as modified by Amendment No. 1, concurrently. Accordingly, the Commission finds good cause, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Exchange Act,247 to approve the proposed rule change, as modified by Amendment No. 1, on an accelerated basis. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES It Is Therefore Ordered, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,248 that the 244 15 U.S.C. 78o 3(b)(6).

These findings are made in recognition of the description of Federal and nonfederal responsibilities in Senate Report No. 96–52 (1990).

For one (1) of the eighteen (18) program measures there was no action required at this time. No program elements relating to new or revised flight procedures for noise abatement were proposed by the airport operator.

Documents reflecting this FAA action may be reviewed at this same location. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA has given its overall approval to the noise compatibility program for Bob Hope Airport, effective October 24, 2016. Under section 47504 of the Act, an airport operator who has previously submitted a noise exposure map may submit to the FAA a noise compatibility program which sets forth the measures taken or proposed by the airport operator for the reduction of existing non-compatible land uses and prevention of additional non-compatible land uses within the area covered by the noise exposure maps. The Act requires such programs to be developed in consultation with interested and affected parties including local communities, government agencies, airport users, and FAA personnel. Each airport noise compatibility program developed in accordance with Part 150 is a local program, not a Federal program. The FAA does not substitute its judgment for that of the airport proprietor with respect to which measures should be recommended for action. The FAA’s approval or disapproval of Part 150 program recommendations is measured according to the standards expressed in Part 150 and the Act and is limited to the following determinations: a. The noise compatibility program was developed in accordance with the provisions and procedures of Part 150; PO 00000 Frm 00128 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 b. Program measures are reasonably consistent with achieving the goals of reducing existing non-compatible land uses around the airport and preventing the introduction of additional noncompatible land uses; c. Program measures would not create an undue burden on interstate or foreign commerce, unjustly discriminate against types or classes of aeronautical uses, violate the terms of airport grant agreements, or intrude into areas preempted by the Federal Government; and d. Program measures relating to the use of flight procedures can be implemented within the period covered by the program without derogating safety, adversely affecting the efficient use and management of the navigable airspace and air traffic control systems, or adversely affecting other powers and responsibilities of the Administrator prescribed by law. Specific limitations with respect to FAA’s approval of an airport noise compatibility program are delineated in Part 150, section 150.5. Approval is not a determination concerning the acceptability of land uses under Federal, state, or local law. Approval does not by itself constitute an FAA implementing action. A request for Federal action or approval to implement specific noise compatibility measures may be required. Prior to an FAA decision on a request to implement the action, an environmental review of the proposed action may be required. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the implementation of the program nor a determination that all measures covered by the program are eligible for grant-inaid funding from the FAA. Where federal funding is sought, requests for project grants must be submitted to the FAA Los Angeles Airports District Office in the Western-Pacific Region. Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority submitted to the FAA on June 27, 2013 the noise exposure maps, descriptions and other documentation produced during the noise compatibility planning study conducted from September 13, 2011 through October 24, 2016. The Bob Hope Airport noise exposure maps were determined by FAA to be in compliance with applicable requirements on October 10, 2013. Notice of this determination was published in the Federal Register (78 FR 64048) on October 25, 2013. The Bob Hope Airport study contains a proposed noise compatibility program comprised of actions designed for phased implementation by airport management and adjacent jurisdictions from December 30, 2014 to the year E:\FR\FM\23NON1.SGM 23NON1

SURFACE TRANSPORTATION BOARD

[Docket No. AB 290 (Sub-No. 343X)]


Central of Georgia Railroad Company--Abandonment Exemption--in 
Newton County, Ga.

AGENCY: Surface Transportation Board.

ACTION: Correction to notice of exemption.

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

    On July 1, 2013, Central of Georgia Railroad Company (CGA) \1\ 
filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR pt. 1152 subpart F--
Exempt Abandonments to abandon approximately 14.90 miles of rail line 
between milepost E 65.80 and milepost E 80.70, in Newton County, Ga. 
The notice was served and published in the Federal Register on July 19, 
2013 (78 FR 43,273).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ CGA is a wholly owned subsidiary of Norfolk Southern Railway 
Company.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Before the exemption became effective, Newton County Trail-Path 
Foundation, Inc. (Newton Trail) filed a request for a notice of interim 
trail use (NITU). The Board issued a NITU on August 19, 2013, and on 
September 28, 2016, CGA and Newton Trail filed a notice informing the 
Board that they had entered into a lease agreement for interim trail 
use and rail banking for the 14.90 miles of rail line that was subject 
to abandonment.
    On October 14, 2016, CGR filed a letter stating that the map 
attached as

[[Page 84674]]

Appendix A to its July 1, 2013 verified notice did not properly depict 
the location of milepost E 65.80, and that parentheticals in the notice 
incorrectly refer to milepost E 65.80 as: ``(at the point of the Line's 
crossing of Route 229 in Newborn).'' \2\ Thus, CGR requests that the 
Board accept the corrected map attached to the October 14, 2016 letter 
and clarify the parenthetical references to milepost E 65.80 in its 
July 1, 2013 verified notice and the notice the Board served and 
published on July 19, 2013, to read: ``(a point just east of the 
Ziegler Road crossing west of downtown Newborn)''. These corrections 
are recognized here. All of the remaining information in the July 19, 
2013 notice remains unchanged.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ On October 14, 2016, CGA and Newton Trail also filed a 
letter to correct their September 28, 2016 notification that a lease 
agreement for interim trail use and rail banking had been reached. 
This filing as well as the modification of the NITU to reflect the 
correct location of milepost E 65.80 will be addressed in a separate 
decision.
