Background: Under the provisions of the Sport Pilot and Light-Sport Aircraft rule, and revised Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A–119, ‘‘Federal Participation in the Development and Use of Voluntary Consensus Standards and in Conformity Assessment Activities,’’ revised January 27, 2016, industry and the FAA have been working with ASTM International to develop consensus standards for light-sport aircraft. These consensus standards satisfy the FAA’s goal for airworthiness certification and a verifiable minimum safety level for light-sport aircraft. Instead of developing airworthiness standards through the rulemaking process, the FAA participates as a member of Committee F37 in developing these standards. The use of the consensus standard process facilitates government and industry discussion and agreement on appropriate standards for the required level of safety. Comments on Previous Notices of Availability In the previous NOA issued on March 27, 2017, and published in the Federal Register on April 3, 2017 (82 FR 16271), the FAA asked for public comments on the revised consensus standards accepted by that NOA. The comment period closed on June 2, 2017. No public comments were received. Consensus Standards in This Notice of Availability The FAA has reviewed the standards presented in this NOA for compliance with the regulatory requirements of the rule. Any light-sport aircraft issued a special light-sport airworthiness certificate, which has been designed, manufactured, operated, and maintained in accordance with these and previously accepted ASTM consensus standards provides the public with the appropriate level of safety established under the regulations. Manufacturers who choose to produce PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 these aircraft and certificate these aircraft under 14 CFR 21.190 or 14 CFR 21.191 are subject to the applicable consensus standard requirements. The FAA maintains a listing of the latest FAA-accepted standards specific to special light-sport aircraft and information on previously accepted standards on the following FAA website: http://www.faa.gov/aircraft/ gen_av/light_sport/. The FAA also maintains a separate general listing of standards accepted by the FAA that have or may have applicability to other types of certifications. This general listing includes the FAA-accepted standards specific to special light-sport aircraft. A link to this general listing of standards is available on the following FAA website: http://www.faa.gov/ aircraft/gen_av/light_sport/. The Revised Consensus Standard and Effective Period of Use The following previously accepted consensus standards have been revised, and this NOA is accepting the later revision. Either the previous revision or the later revision may be used for the initial airworthiness certification of special light-sport aircraft until October 3, 2019. This overlapping period of time will allow aircraft that have started the initial airworthiness certification process using the previous revision level to complete that process. After October 3, 2019, manufacturers must use the later revision and must identify the later revision in the Statement of Compliance for initial airworthiness certification of special light-sport aircraft unless the FAA publishes a specific notification otherwise.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP– 21) established the Surface Transportation Project Delivery Program that allows a State to assume FHWA’s environmental responsibilities for environmental review, consultation, and compliance under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) for Federal highway projects. When a State assumes these Federal responsibilities, the State becomes solely responsible and liable for the responsibilities it has assumed, in lieu of FHWA. This program mandates annual audits during each of the first 4 years to ensure the State’s compliance with program requirements. This notice makes available the final report of Ohio Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) second audit under the program. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. James G. Gavin, Office of Project Development and Environmental Review, (202) 366–1473, James.Gavin@ dot.gov, or Mr. David Sett, Office of the Chief Counsel, (404) 562–3676, David.Sett@dot.gov, Federal Highway Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation, 61 Forsyth Street 17T100, Atlanta, GA 30303.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Electronic Access An electronic copy of this notice may be downloaded from the specific docket page at www.regulations.gov. Background The Surface Transportation Project Delivery Program, codified at 23 U.S.C. 327, commonly known as the NEPA Assignment Program, allows a State to assume FHWA’s responsibilities for environmental review, consultation, and compliance for Federal highway projects. When a State assumes these Federal responsibilities, the State becomes solely liable for carrying out the responsibilities, in lieu of FHWA. The ODOT published its application for assumption under the NEPA PO 00000 Frm 00069 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 49973 Assignment Program on April 12, 2015, and made it available for public comment for 30 days. After considering public comments, ODOT submitted its application to FHWA on May 27, 2015. The application served as the basis for developing the memorandum of understanding (MOU) that identifies the responsibilities and obligations that ODOT would assume. The FHWA published a notice of the draft MOU in the Federal Register on October 15, 2015, at 80 FR 62153, with a 30-day comment period to solicit the views of the public and Federal agencies. After the comment period closed, FHWA and ODOT considered comments and executed the MOU. Section 327(g) of Title 23, U.S.C., requires the Secretary to conduct annual audits to ensure compliance with the MOU during each of the first 4 years of State participation and, after the fourth year, monitor compliance. The results of each audit must be made available for public comment. The FHWA published a notice in the Federal Register on April 18, 2018, soliciting public comment for 30-days, pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327(g). This notice is available at 83 FR 17212. The FHWA received comments on the draft report from the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA). The ARTBA’s comments were supportive of the Surface Transportation Project Delivery Program and did not relate specifically to Audit 2. The team has considered these comments in finalizing this audit report. This notice makes available the final report of ODOT’s second audit under the program. Authority: Section 1313 of Public Law 112–141; Section 6005 of Public Law 109–59; 23 U.S.C. 327; 23 CFR 773. Issued on: September 26, 2018. Brandye L. Hendrickson, Deputy Administrator, Federal Highway Administration. Surface Transportation Project Delivery Program Final FHWA Audit of the Ohio Department of Transportation August 6, 2016–August 4, 2017 Executive Summary This is the second audit of the Ohio Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) assumption of National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) responsibilities, conducted by a team of Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) staff (the team). The ODOT made the effective date of the project-level NEPA and environmental review responsibilities it assumed from FHWA on December 28, 2015, as specified in a E:\FR\FM\03OCN1.SGM 03OCN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces the availability of 
two new and two revised consensus standards that supersede previously 
accepted consensus standards relating to the provisions of the Sport 
Pilot and Light-Sport Aircraft rule. ASTM International Committee F37 
on Light-Sport Aircraft developed the new and revised standards. The 
FAA expects a suitable consensus standard to be reviewed periodically. 
The review cycle will result in a standard revision or reapproval. A 
standard is revised to make changes to its technical content or is 
reapproved to indicate a review cycle has been completed with no 
technical changes. A standard is issued under a fixed designation 
(e.g., F2245); the number immediately following the designation 
indicates the year of original adoption or, in the case of revision, 
the year of last revision. A number in parentheses following the year 
of original adoption or revision indicates the year of last reapproval. 
For example, F2242-05(2013) designates a standard that was originally 
adopted (or revised) in 2005 and reapproved in 2013. A superscript 
epsilon ([egr]) indicates an editorial change since the last revision 
or reapproval. A notice of availability (NOA) will only be issued for 
new or revised standards. Reapproved standards issued with no technical 
changes or standards issued with editorial changes only (i.e., 
superscript epsilon [[egr]]) are considered accepted by the Federal 
Aviation Administration (FAA) without need for an NOA.
    Comments Invited: Interested persons are invited to submit such 
written data, views, or arguments as they may desire. Communications 
should identify the consensus standard number and be submitted to the 
address specified above. All communications received on or before the 
closing date for comments will be forwarded to ASTM International 
Committee F37 for consideration. The standard may be changed in light 
of the comments received. The FAA will address all comments received 
during the recurring review of the consensus standard and will 
participate in the consensus standard revision process.
    Background: Under the provisions of the Sport Pilot and Light-Sport 
Aircraft rule, and revised Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
Circular A-119, ``Federal Participation in the Development and Use of 
Voluntary Consensus Standards and in Conformity Assessment 
Activities,'' revised January 27, 2016, industry and the FAA have been 
working with ASTM International to develop consensus standards for 
light-sport aircraft. These consensus standards satisfy the FAA's goal 
for airworthiness certification and a verifiable minimum safety level 
for light-sport aircraft. Instead of developing airworthiness standards 
through the rulemaking process, the FAA participates as a member of 
Committee F37 in developing these standards. The use of the consensus 
standard process facilitates government and industry discussion and 
agreement on appropriate standards for the required level of safety.

provides the public with the appropriate level of safety established 
under the regulations. Manufacturers who choose to produce these 
aircraft and certificate these aircraft under 14 CFR 21.190 or 14 CFR 
21.191 are subject to the applicable consensus standard requirements.
    The FAA maintains a listing of the latest FAA-accepted standards 
specific to special light-sport aircraft and information on previously 
accepted standards on the following FAA website: http://www.faa.gov/aircraft/gen_av/light_sport/. The FAA also maintains a separate general 
listing of standards accepted by the FAA that have or may have 
applicability to other types of certifications. This general listing 
includes the FAA-accepted standards specific to special light-sport 
aircraft. A link to this general listing of standards is available on 
the following FAA website: http://www.faa.gov/aircraft/gen_av/light_sport/.

The Revised Consensus Standard and Effective Period of Use
