Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 115 / Friday, June 16, 2017 / Notices Athens states that the proposed transaction does not involve any provision or agreement that may limit future interchange commitments. Athens certifies that its projected annual revenues would not exceed those that would qualify it as a Class III rail carrier and that its projected annual revenues will not exceed $5 million. The transaction may be consummated on or after June 30, 2017, the effective date of the exemption (30 days after the verified notice was filed). If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a petition to revoke will not automatically stay the effectiveness of the exemption. Petitions to stay must be filed no later than June 23, 2017 (at least seven days before the exemption becomes effective). An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to Docket No. FD 36122, must be filed with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street SW., Washington, DC 20423–0001. In addition, a copy of each pleading must be served on applicant’s representative, Richard H. Streeter, Law Office of Richard H. Streeter, 5255 Partridge Lane NW., Washington, DC 20016. According to Athens, this action is categorically excluded from environmental review under 49 CFR 1105.6(c). Board decisions and notices are available on our Web site at WWW.STB.GOV. Decided: June 13, 2017. By the Board, Rachel D. Campbell, Director, Office of Proceedings. Raina S. Contee, Clearance Clerk. [FR Doc. 2017–12560 Filed 6–15–17; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4915–01–P SURFACE TRANSPORTATION BOARD [Docket No. FD 36121] sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Progressive Rail Incorporated— Continuance in Control Exemption— Piedmont and Northern Railroad LLC Progressive Rail Incorporated (PGR), a Class III rail carrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(2) to continue in control of Piedmont and Northern Railroad LLC (PDMT), upon PDMT’s becoming a Class III rail carrier. This transaction is related to a concurrently filed verified notice of exemption in Piedmont & Northern Railroad—Change in Operator VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:12 Jun 15, 2017 Jkt 241001 Exemption—Piedmont Railway, Docket No. FD 36120. In that proceeding, PDMT seeks an exemption under 49 CFR 1150.31 to assume operations over approximately 13.04 miles of rail line between Mt. Holly and Gastonia (including the Belmont spur between Mt. Holly and Belmont), in Gaston County, N.C. The earliest this transaction may be consummated is July 1, 2017, the effective date of the exemption (30 days after the verified notice was filed). PGR states that it intends to consummate the transaction on July 1, 2017. PGR will continue in control of PDMT upon PDMT’s becoming a Class III rail carrier, and remains in control of Class III carriers Airlake Terminal Railway Company, LLC, Central Midland Railway Company, Iowa Traction Railway Company, and Iowa Southern Railway Company. PGR certifies that: (1) The rail line to be operated by PDMT does not connect with any other railroads in the PGR corporate family; (2) the continuance in control is not part of a series of anticipated transactions that would connect this line with any other railroad in the PGR corporate family; and (3) the transaction does not involve a Class I rail carrier. Therefore, the transaction is exempt from the prior approval requirements of 49 U.S.C. 11323. See 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(2). Under 49 U.S.C. 10502(g), the Board may not use its exemption authority to relieve a rail carrier of its statutory obligation to protect the interests of its employees. Section 11326(c), however, does not provide for labor protection for transactions under 11324 and 11325 that involve only Class III rail carriers. Accordingly, the Board may not impose labor protective conditions here because all of the carriers involved are Class III carriers. If the notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a petition to revoke will not automatically stay the effectiveness of the exemption. Petitions for stay must be filed no later than June 23, 2017 (at least 7 days before the exemption becomes effective). An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to Docket No. FD 36121, must be filed with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street SW., Washington, DC 20423–0001. In addition, one copy of each pleading must be served on Michael J. Barron, Jr., Fletcher & Sippel LLC, 29 North Wacker Drive, Suite 920, Chicago, IL 60606.
