SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On May 24, 2012, the Department established an advisory committee on aviation consumer protection, known as the Advisory Committee on Aviation Consumer Protection, as mandated by section 411 of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 (Pub. L. 112– 95, 126 Stat. 11 (2012)) (2012 FAA Act) and the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), as amended. The original Committee held nine meetings and examined a broad range of issues affecting consumers. The Committee has contributed significantly to the Department’s aviation consumer protection program as it provides a forum for stakeholders, including representatives of airlines, airports and consumers, to discuss important consumer issues. The statutory termination date for the Committee was originally established by the 2012 FAA Act as September 30, 2015, but has been extended several times, most recently by the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 (Pub. L. No: 115–254) (2018 FAA Act) to the current termination date of September 30, 2023. The Department has updated the Committee’s charter to clarify that the PO 00000 Frm 00094 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Responses 50 15 Hours per response 0.5 2 Total hours 25 30 Committee’s work should concern aviation consumer protection issues that fall within the current statutory authority of the Department and establish a subcommittee to be called the ‘‘National In-Flight Sexual Misconduct Task Force.’’ Appointment of New Members The Secretary has appointed four new members to the Committee. The appointed members are: (1) Patricia Vercelli, General Counsel, Airlines for America, as the airline representative; (2) Mario Rodriguez, Executive Director of the Indianapolis Airport Authority, as the airport operator representative; (3) Pete K. Rahn, Maryland Secretary of Transportation, as the State or local government representative; and (4) Frances Smith, Adjunct Fellow, Competitive Enterprise Institute, as the consumer representative. Mr. Rahn will serve as the Chair of the Committee. The Department chose the Committee members based on two main criteria: (1) Representativeness (does the individual represent one of the four groups mentioned above); and (2) expertise (does the individual bring essential knowledge, expertise, or experience regarding consumer protection). National In-Flight Sexual Misconduct Task Force Subcommittee Recent reports of increased incidents of sexual assault and misconduct onboard aircraft have highlighted concerns regarding the response to such incidents. The Joint Explanatory Statement of the 2018 Consolidated Appropriations Act requested that the Department establish a Task Force to provide recommendations in this area. In addition, the Task Force is mandated by the 2018 FAA Act. Accordingly, a Task Force has been established as a subcommittee under the ACPAC to consider best practices and protocols for air carriers relating to training, reporting, and data collection of sexual misconduct by passengers onboard commercial aircraft. The Task Force will include representatives from the Department of Transportation, Department of Justice (including the Federal Bureau of Investigations, Office of Victims of Crime and Office on Violence Against Women), Department of Health and Human Services, national organizations which specialize in providing services to sexual assault E:\FR\FM\23NON1.SGM 23NON1
