Other Minor Changes. The Board will also revise Form R–1 reporting schedules and quarterly operating reports to make minor clarifications, formatting changes, and grammatical corrections.

Revisions include updating schedule titles, cross-checks, page numbering, layout, and parenthetical references for specific line items with current USOA accounts. These revisions will ensure proper reporting of data collected. Below are some of the notable revisions: • Form R–1 Schedule 210 A, Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Income: References to certain line items that improperly instruct how to calculate Comprehensive Income, Other Comprehensive Income, and Comprehensive Income Attributable to Reporting Railroads will be removed. • Form R–1 Schedule 245, Working Capital: This schedule will be updated to reflect a line numbering change that occurred among other changes in Schedule 200. • Form R–1 Schedule 510, Separation of Debtholdings Between Road Property and Equipment: The sources for Lines 1 through 8 will be updated to show the line numbering change in Schedule 200, and the sources for Lines 16, 17, and 21 will be modified to properly show total road property and equipment debt and total interest. • Form R–1 Schedule 342, Accumulated Depreciation— Improvements to Road and Equipment Leased from Others: Instructions 2 and 3 will be amended to instruct users to refer to the notes and remarks section for Schedule 342 and no longer specifically to page number 39. These and other minor changes (except for non-substantive formatting changes) are highlighted and annotated in appendices attached to the Board’s served decision.

Regulatory Flexibility Act Statement The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA), 5 U.S.C. 601–612, generally requires a description and analysis of new rules that would have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. In drafting a rule, an agency is required to: (1) Assess the effect that its regulation will have on small entities; (2) analyze effective alternatives that may minimize a regulation’s impact; and (3) make the analysis available for public comment. 5 U.S.C. 601–604. Under section 605(b), an agency is not required to perform an initial or final regulatory flexibility analysis if it certifies that the proposed or final rules will not have a ‘‘significant impact on a substantial number of small entities.’’ Because the goal of the RFA is to reduce the cost to small entities of complying with federal regulations, the RFA requires an agency to perform a regulatory flexibility analysis of small entity impacts only when a rule directly regulates those entities. In other words, the impact must be a direct impact on small entities ‘‘whose conduct is circumscribed or mandated’’ by the proposed rule. White Eagle Coop. Ass’n v. Conner, 553 F.3d 467, 478, 480 (7th Cir. 2009). The reporting requirements modified here will not have a significant economic impact upon a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the RFA. The reporting requirements will apply only to Class I rail carriers. 49 CFR 1241.1. Accordingly, there will be no impact on small railroads (small entities).3 3 Effective June 30, 2016, for the purpose of RFA analysis for rail carriers subject to the Board’s jurisdiction, the Board defines a ‘‘small business’’ as a Class III rail carrier under 49 CFR 1201.1–1. See Small Entity Size Standards Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act, EP 719 (STB served June PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Therefore, the Board certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that these modifications will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the RFA. A copy of this decision will be served upon the Chief Counsel for Advocacy, Office of Advocacy, U.S. Small Business Administration, Washington, DC 20416. Authority: 49 U.S.C. 11142 and 11164. It is ordered: 1. The modifications set forth in this decision are adopted and will be effective beginning with the annual R– 1 reports for the year ending December 31, 2017, and the quarterly operating reports for the second calendar quarter of 2017. Notice of the modifications adopted here will be published in the Federal Register. 2. A copy of this decision will be served upon the Chief Counsel for Advocacy, Office of Advocacy, U.S. Small Business Administration. 3. This decision is effective on May 24, 2017.

ACTION: Notice of final disposition. AGENCY: FMCSA announces its decision to exempt 14 individuals from the vision requirement in the Federal SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:48 Apr 21, 2017 Jkt 241001 On March 6, 2017, FMCSA published a notice of receipt of exemption applications from certain individuals, and requested comments from the public (82 FR 12678). That notice listed 14 applicants’ case histories. The 14 individuals applied for exemptions from the vision requirement in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10), for drivers who operate CMVs in interstate commerce. PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 18949 Under 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315, FMCSA may grant an exemption for a 2-year period if it finds ‘‘such exemption would likely achieve a level of safety that is equivalent to or greater than the level that would be achieved absent such exemption.’’ The statute also allows the Agency to renew exemptions at the end of the 2-year period. Accordingly, FMCSA has evaluated the 14 applications on their merits and made a determination to grant exemptions to each of them. III. Vision and Driving Experience of the Applicants The vision requirement in the FMCSRs provides: A person is physically qualified to drive a commercial motor vehicle if that person has distant visual acuity of at least 20/40 (Snellen) in each eye without corrective lenses or visual acuity separately corrected to 20/40 (Snellen) or better with corrective lenses, distant binocular acuity of a least 20/40 (Snellen) in both eyes with or without corrective lenses, field of vision of at least 70° in the horizontal meridian in each eye, and the ability to recognize the colors of traffic signals and devices showing red, green, and amber (49 CFR 391.41(b)(10)). FMCSA recognizes that some drivers do not meet the vision requirement but have adapted their driving to accommodate their limitation and demonstrated their ability to drive safely. The 14 exemption applicants listed in this notice are in this category. They are unable to meet the vision requirement in one eye for various reasons, including amblyopia, cataract, complete loss of vision, macular hole, optic atrophy, poor vision, prosthetic eye, and retinal detachment. In most cases, their eye conditions were not recently developed. Twelve of the applicants were either born with their vision impairments or have had them since childhood. The 2 individuals that sustained their vision conditions as adults have had it for a range of 5 to 13 years. Although each applicant has one eye which does not meet the vision requirement in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10), each has at least 20/40 corrected vision in the other eye, and in a doctor’s opinion, has sufficient vision to perform all the tasks necessary to operate a CMV. Doctors’ opinions are supported by the applicants’ possession of valid commercial driver’s licenses (CDLs) or non-CDLs to operate CMVs. Before issuing CDLs, States subject drivers to knowledge and skills tests designed to evaluate their qualifications to operate a CMV. E:\FR\FM\24APN1.SGM 24APN1
