Docket: For access to the docket to read background documents or comments, go to http:// VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:18 Sep 07, 2017 Jkt 241001 FMCSA received applications from 24 individuals who requested an exemption from the FMCSRs prohibiting persons with a clinical diagnosis of epilepsy or any other condition that is likely to cause a loss of consciousness or any loss of ability to operate a CMV from operating CMVs in interstate commerce. FMCSA has evaluated the eligibility of these applicants and concluded that granting these exemptions would not provide a level of safety that would be equivalent to or greater than, the level of safety that would be obtained by complying with the regulation 49 CFR 391.41(b)(8). III. Basis for Exemption Determination Under 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315, FMCSA may grant an exemption for two years if it finds ‘‘such an exemption would likely achieve a level of safety that is equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be achieved absent such an exemption.’’ The Agency’s decision regarding these exemption applications is based on the eligibility criteria, the terms and conditions for Federal exemptions, and an individualized assessment of each applicant’s medical information provided by the applicant. IV. Conclusion The Agency has determined that these applicants do not satisfy the criteria eligibility or meet the terms and conditions of the Federal exemption and granting these exemptions would not provide a level of safety that would be equivalent to or greater than, the level of safety that would be obtained by complying with the regulation 49 CFR 391.41(b)(8). Therefore, the 24 applicants in this notice have been denied exemptions from the physical qualification standards in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(8).

Those decision letters fully outlined the basis for the denial and constitutes final action by the Agency. This notice summarizes the Agency’s recent denials as required under 49 U.S.C. 31315(b)(4) by periodically publishing names and reasons for denial. The following 24 applicants do not meet the minimum time requirement for being seizure-free, either on or off of anti-seizure medication: Bigler, David (MN) Borrell, Clinton (PA) Callahayre, Jessa (MN) Calvin, Vincent (IN) Cross, James (MA) Darden, John (CA) Gold, Allan (NV) Gonzales, Jeremiah (CO) Gress, Gary (PA) Hitchcock, Cody (PA) La Canne, Harold (MN) Lewis, Jeffrey (IN) Lloyd, Craig (GA) Mareda, Michael (OH) Marrill, Timothy (MO) Moore, Phillip (CT) Nardi, Donna (NJ) Oglenski, Daniel (MI) Paul, Steven (WI) Prynn, Roger (NY) Rhone, Corey (MD) Schumake, Michael (VA) Stevens, Mark (FL) Zeigler, Jesse (PA) Issued on: August 31, 2017.
