SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On October 18, 2018, the ABA and the UMA submitted a petition to FMCSA requesting a determination that the SFO vehicle inspection requirement is preempted by Federal law. According to the petition, the Airport Commission of the City and County of San Francisco has adopted Rules and Regulations to govern the general conduct of the public, tenants, employees, and commercial users of SFO as their activities relate to the possession, VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:39 May 08, 2019 Jkt 247001 management, supervision, operation, and control of the Airport. The current Rules and Regulations became effective on January 1, 2018 and contain provisions that govern commercial ground transportation operations (Rule 4.7). The petition states that under Rule 4.7, transportation companies that pick up and drop off passengers at SFO must apply for a Ground Transportation Operating Permit and that to obtain a permit, companies must first be licensed with the California Public Utilities Commission or have been granted Operating Authority by FMCSA for outof-state carriers. The petition states that SFO’s website provides notice of a requirement that, upon application for a Ground Transportation Operating Permit and annually thereafter, ground transportation vehicles must be inspected by airport mechanics. An offsite inspection is allowed, with fees attached, for fleets of 25 or more vehicles. The petition also alleges that while the SFO website includes a ‘‘San Francisco International Airport Vehicle Safety Inspection Checklist,’’ neither the checklist nor Rule 4.7 identifies the standards used to determine whether a particular vehicle component has passed or failed the inspection, nor is there any indication as to what overall score is necessary for a commercial motorcoach to pass such an inspection. While the petition states that all vehicles operating at SFO are required to display a transponder and permitspecific decals, the petition seeks a preemption determination concerning only the vehicle inspection requirement. Applicable Law Section 31141 of title 49 of the United States Code prohibits States from enforcing a law or regulation on CMV safety that the Secretary of Transportation (Secretary) has determined to be preempted. To determine whether a State law or regulation is preempted, the Secretary must decide whether a State law or regulation: (1) Has the same effect as a regulation prescribed under 49 U.S.C. 31136, which is the authority for much of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs); (2) is less stringent than such a regulation; or (3) is additional to or more stringent than such a regulation 49 U.S.C. 31141(c)(1). If the Secretary decides that a State law or regulation has the same effect as a regulation prescribed under 49 U.S.C. 31136, the State law or regulation may be enforced. 49 U.S.C. 31141(c)(2). If the Secretary decides that a State law or regulation is less stringent than a regulation prescribed under 49 U.S.C. 31136, the State law or regulation may PO 00000 Frm 00146 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 20467 not be enforced. 49 U.S.C. 31141(c)(3). If the Secretary decides that a State law or regulation is additional to or more stringent than a regulation prescribed by the Secretary under 49 U.S.C. 31136, the State law or regulation may be enforced unless the Secretary decides that the State law or regulation (1) has no safety benefit; (2) is incompatible with the regulation prescribed by the Secretary; or (3) would cause an unreasonable burden on interstate commerce. 49 U.S.C. 31141(c)(4). To determine whether a State law or regulation will cause an unreasonable burden on interstate commerce, the Secretary may consider the cumulative effect that the State’s law or regulation and all similar laws and regulations of other States will have on interstate commerce. 49 U.S.C. 31141(c)(5). The Secretary’s authority under 49 U.S.C. 31141 is delegated to the FMCSA Administrator pursuant to 49 CFR 1.87(f). Request for Comments Although preemption under 49 U.S.C. 31141 is a legal determination reserved to the judgment of the Agency, FMCSA seeks comments on any issues raised in the petition or otherwise relevant ones. The Agency has placed the petition in the docket. Issued on: May 3, 2019. Raymond P. Martinez, Administrator.
