This rate may be used as a base rate for guaranteed fluctuating interest rate SBA loans. This rate will be 2.88 percent for the April– June quarter of FY 2019.

W&LE states that the agreements with NSR governing the Huron Dock lease and the Bellevue-Huron Trackage Rights have now expired and the requested discontinuance exemption will terminate W&LE’s remaining common carrier status with respect to those rights and permit NSR to pursue abandonment and disposition of the Huron Dock. 1 W&LE leased the Huron Dock and acquired the related Bellevue-Huron Trackage Rights from the Norfolk and Western Railway Company (N&W), a predecessor to NSR, in 1994. See Wheeling & Lake Erie Ry.—Lease & Operation Exemption—Norfolk & W. Ry.’s Dock at Huron, Ohio, FD 32516 (ICC served June 27, 1994); Wheeling & Lake Erie Ry.—Trackage Rights Exemption—Norfolk & W.

PO 00000 Frm 00113 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 W&LE has certified that: (1) No W&LE revenue traffic has moved over the Huron Dock or the Bellevue-Huron Trackage Rights for at least two years; 2 (2) any W&LE overhead traffic formerly handled via the Huron Dock or the Bellevue-Huron Trackage Rights could be rerouted over other lines; (3) no formal complaint filed by a user of rail service on the Huron Dock or the Bellevue-Huron Trackage Rights (or a state or local government entity acting on behalf of such user) regarding cessation of service either is pending before the Surface Transportation Board (Board) or any U.S. District Court or has been decided in favor of the complainant within the two-year period; and (4) the requirements at 49 CFR 1105.12 (newspaper publication) and 49 CFR 1152.50(d)(1) (notice to governmental agencies) have been met. As a condition to this exemption, any employee adversely affected by the discontinuance of service shall be protected under Oregon Short Line Railroad—Abandonment Portion Goshen Branch Between Firth & Ammon, in Bingham & Bonneville Counties, Idaho, 360 I.C.C. 91 (1979). To address whether this condition adequately protects affected employees, a petition for partial revocation under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) must be filed. Provided no formal expression of intent to file an offer of financial assistance (OFA) 3 to subsidize continued rail service has been received, this exemption will be effective on April 21, 2019, unless stayed pending reconsideration. Petitions to stay that do not involve environmental issues and formal expressions of intent to file an OFA under 49 CFR 1152.27(c)(2) 4 must be filed by April 1, 2019.5 Petitions for reconsideration must be filed by April 2 W&LE states that it has received railroad ballast for its own use at Huron Dock within the last two years. Such non-revenue movements, however, do not affect the availability of the class exemption for abandonment or discontinuance of out-of-service rail lines. See, e.g., Cambria & Ind. R.R.—Aban. Exemption—in Cambria Cty., Pa., AB 240 (Sub-No. 4X) (ICC served Nov. 23, 1994). 3 The Board modified its OFA procedures effective July 29, 2017. Among other things, the OFA process now requires potential offerors, in their formal expression of intent, to make a preliminary financial responsibility showing based on a calculation using information contained in the carrier’s filing and publicly available information. See Offers of Financial Assistance, EP 729 (STB served June 29, 2017); 82 FR 30,997 (July 5, 2017). 4 Each OFA must be accompanied by the filing fee, which currently is set at $1,800. See 49 CFR 1002.2(f)(25). 5 Because this is a discontinuance proceeding and not an abandonment, trail use/rail banking and public use conditions are not appropriate. Because there will be an environmental review during abandonment, this discontinuance does not require environmental review. E:\FR\FM\22MRN1.SGM 22MRN1

In the Matter of the Review and Amendment of the Designation of 
ISIS (and Other Aliases) as a Foreign Terrorist Organization Pursuant 
to the Immigration and Nationality Act, as Amended

    Based upon a review of the Administrative Record assembled pursuant 
to Section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act, as amended (8 
U.S.C. 1189) (``INA''), and in consultation with the Attorney General 
and the Secretary of the Treasury, I conclude that the circumstances 
that were the basis for the designation of the aforementioned 
organization (and other aliases) as a Foreign Terrorist Organization 
have not changed in such a manner as to warrant revocation of the 
designation, and that

[[Page 10882]]

the national security of the United States does not warrant a 
revocation of the designation. I also conclude that there is a 
sufficient factual basis to find that the aforementioned organization 
(and other aliases) uses the additional aliases: Amaq News Agency and 
Al Hayat Media Center, also known as Al-Hayat Media Center, also known 
as Al Hayat.
    Therefore, I hereby determine that the designation of the 
aforementioned organization (and other aliases) as a Foreign Terrorist 
Organization, pursuant to Section 219 of the INA, as amended (8 U.S.C. 
1189), shall be maintained. Additionally, pursuant to Section 219(b) of 
the INA, as amended (8 U.S.C. 1189(b)), I hereby amend the designation 
of the aforementioned organization as a Foreign Terrorist Organization 
to include the following new aliases: Amaq News Agency and Al Hayat 
Media Center, also known as Al-Hayat Media Center, also known as Al 
Hayat.
    This determination shall be published in the Federal Register.

    Dated: December 21, 2018.
