This rate is a weighted average cost of money to the government for maturities similar to the average SBA direct loan. This rate may be used as a base rate for guaranteed fluctuating interest rate SBA loans. This rate will be 2.375 percent for the January–March quarter of FY 2018. Pursuant to 13 CFR 120.921(b), the maximum legal interest rate for any third party lender’s commercial loan which funds any portion of the cost of a 504 project (see 13 CFR 120.801) shall be 6% over the New York Prime rate or, if that exceeds the maximum interest rate permitted by the constitution or laws of a given State, the maximum interest rate will be the rate permitted by the constitution or laws of the given State.

FRA assigned the request Docket Number FRA–2017–0101. As described in its request, LIRR has modified several Ml/M3 Multiple Unit passenger cars for use as AlcoholSandite (ALSA) cars for third rail ice removal and running rail adhesion conditioning. These cars were originally equipped with RT–5A brake equipment for Electric Multiple unit operation and D–1–A triple valve brake system (D–1– A) for use with conventional locomotives. As converted, the ALSA cars will operate exclusively with the original D–1–A system. With these modifications, the ALSA cars will fall under the definition of freight cars and will be subject to the single car brake testing requirements of 49 CFR 232.305. Section 232.305 requires testing in accordance with the Association of American Railroads (AAR) procedure S–486–04 or a modified procedure approved by FRA pursuant to 49 CFR 232.307. The tests in AAR S–486–04 are intended for freight cars with systems significantly different from the D–1–A system used on the ALSA cars and cannot be used for testing this equipment. LIRR has developed an alternative single car brake test procedure customized to the D–1–A system for use on the ALSA cars. The procedure, specified in LIRR’s posted Maintenance Instruction Letter MIL– 2097–M4, closely conforms to all applicable sections of S–486–04 and LIRR asserts that it provides an equivalent level of safety. LIRR requests that it be granted special approval to use MIL–2097–M4 for single car brake testing on ALSA cars. A copy of these documents and the petition, as well as any written communications concerning the petition, is available for review online at www.regulations.gov and in person at the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Docket Operations Facility, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, W12–140, Washington, DC 20590.
