ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: This notice provides information regarding FHWA’s finding that a Buy America waiver is appropriate for the procurement of a John Deere 640R Standard Farm Loader for recreational trail maintenance by the St. Marys Area Snowmobile Association (through the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources) because the equipment is not available to be produced using 100 percent domestic steel or iron.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Electronic Access An electronic copy of this document may be downloaded from the Federal Register’s home page at: http:// www.archives.gov and the Government Publishing Office’s database at: http:// www.access.gpo.gov/nara. Background The FHWA’s Buy America policy in 23 CFR 635.410 requires a domestic manufacturing process for any steel or iron products (including protective coatings) that are permanently incorporated in a Federal-aid construction project. The regulation also provides for a waiver of the Buy America requirements when the application would be inconsistent with the public interest or when satisfactory quality domestic steel and iron products are not sufficiently available. This notice provides information regarding FHWA’s finding that a Buy America waiver is appropriate for a John Deere 640R Standard Farm Loader for recreational trail maintenance by the St. Marys Area Snowmobile Association in Pennsylvania because this equipment is not available to be produced by domestic manufacturers using 100 percent domestic steel or iron. Consistent with the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2017 (Pub. L. 115–31), FHWA published a notice on its Web site, https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/ construction/contracts/waivers.cfm? id=148 on March 22 seeking comments on whether a waiver of Buy America requirements is appropriate. The FHWA received no comments in response to the publication. Both the St. Marys Area Snowmobile Association and Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources were unable to verify that equipment meeting its specifications could be produced by domestic manufacturers. The applicant requires and all-terrain, all-season, medium frame tractor to pull snow grooming equipment and clear the trail of vegetation. The applicant could not locate a domestically manufactured model of all season, medium frame tractors that can accommodate its existing snow grooming equipment. The FHWA also contacted a potential domestic manufacturer and a domestic vendor to verify whether the subject materials or a suitable substitute were reasonably available. Based on all the information available to the agency, FHWA concludes that there are no domestic manufacturers of a John Deere PO 00000 Frm 00122 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 47075 640R Standard Farm Loader for recreational trail maintenance by the St. Marys Area Snowmobile Association in Pennsylvania for which all its iron and steel is domestically manufactured. The St. Marys Area Snowmobile Association, the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Pennsylvania DOT, contractors, and subcontractors involved in the procurement of John Deere 640R are reminded of the need to comply with the Cargo Preference Act in 46 CFR part 38, if applicable. In accordance with the provisions of section 117 of the SAFETEA–LU Technical Corrections Act of 2008 (Pub. L. 110–244, 122 Stat. 1572), FHWA is providing this notice as its finding that a waiver of Buy America requirements is appropriate. The FHWA invites public comment on this finding for an additional 15 days following the effective date of the finding. Comments may be submitted to FHWA’s Web site via the link provided to the waiver page noted above. Authority: (23 U.S.C. 313; Pub. L. 110–161, 23 CFR 635.410) Issued on: October 2, 2017. Brandye L.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Under 49 U.S.C. 30141(a)(1)(A), a motor vehicle that was not 
originally manufactured to conform to all applicable FMVSS shall be 
refused admission into the United States unless NHTSA has decided that 
the motor vehicle is substantially similar to a motor vehicle 
originally manufactured for importation into and sale in the United 
States, certified as required under 49 U.S.C. 30115, and of the same 
model year as the model of the motor vehicle to be compared, and is

manufacturers or importers who have registered with NHTSA pursuant to 
49 CFR part 592. As specified in 49 CFR 593.7, NHTSA publishes notice 
in the Federal Register of each petition that it receives, and affords

NHTSA's Conclusions

    NHTSA has reviewed the petition and has concluded that the vehicles 
covered by the petition are substantially similar to MY 2010 
Lamborghini Murcielago PCs and are capable of being readily altered to 
comply with all applicable FMVSS.
    NHTSA has also concluded that each RI who imports and modifies one 
of these vehicles must include in the statement of conformity and 
associated documents (``conformity package'') it submits to the NHTSA 
under 49 CFR part 592.6(d) explicit proof to confirm that the vehicle 
was, where applicable, originally manufactured to conform to, or was 
successfully altered to conform to, FMVSS No. 101 Controls and 
Displays, FMVSS No. 138, Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems, FMVSS No. 
208, Occupant Crash Protection, and FMVSS No. 301 Fuel System 
Integrity. This proof must include detailed descriptions of all 
modifications made, including a detailed description of systems in 
place (if any) on the vehicle as delivered to the RI, and a similarly 
detailed description of alterations made to the vehicle and said 
systems, including photographs of all required labeling. The 
descriptions must also include parts assembly diagrams and associated 
part numbers for all components that were removed from or installed in 
the vehicle, an accounting of any computer programming modifications 
undertaken and a description of how compliance was verified after 
alteration of the vehicle.
    In addition to the information specified above, each conformity 
package must also include evidence showing how the RI verified that the 
changes it made in loading or reprograming vehicle software to achieve 
conformity with each separate FMVSS, did not also cause the vehicle to 
fall out of compliance with any other applicable FMVSS.

Decision

    Accordingly, on the basis of the foregoing, NHTSA hereby decides 
that MY 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago passenger cars that were not 
originally manufactured to comply with all applicable FMVSS, are 
substantially similar to MY 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago passenger cars 
manufactured for importation into and/or sale in the United States, and 
certified under 49 U.S.C. 30115, and are capable of being readily 
altered to conform to all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety 
Standards.

Vehicle Eligibility Number for Subject Vehicles

    The importer of a vehicle admissible under any final decision must 
indicate on the form HS-7 accompanying entry the appropriate vehicle 
eligibility number indicating that the vehicle is eligible for entry.
