On July 9, 2019, Brookfield Asset Management, Inc. (Brookfield), and DJP XX, LLC (DJP), filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(2) to allow DJP and Brookfield to control Genesee & Wyoming Inc. (GWI) and the 106 rail carriers that are subject to the jurisdiction of the Board and that GWI controls (GWI Railroads). According to the verified notice, Brookfield is an alternative asset manager, and DJP 1 is a limited liability company specially formed to acquire GWI, which is a publicly-traded non-carrier holding company that controls, through direct or indirect equity ownership, the GWI Railroads. As a result of the proposed transaction, GWI would become a privately-held company and a whollyowned subsidiary of DJP. Brookfield and DJP state, among other things, that the proposed transaction falls within the class exemption set forth at 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(2), because (i) the GWI Railroads do not connect with any rail line owned or controlled by DJP or Brookfield; 2 (ii) the proposed transaction is not part of a series of anticipated transactions that would connect any railroad owned or controlled by DJP or Brookfield with any GWI Railroad, or that would connect any of the GWI Railroads with each other; and (iii) the proposed transaction does not involve a Class I carrier. (Verified Notice 2–3.) The Board is considering the issues presented here, including whether the class exemption is appropriate for this transaction. See 49 U.S.C. 10502(d).

Spokane, Spangle & Palouse Railway, L.L.C.--Lease and Operation 
Exemption--Washington State Department of Transportation

    Spokane, Spangle & Palouse Railway, L.L.C. (SSPR), a noncarrier, 
has filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.31 to lease 
from the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) and 
operate approximately 102.6 miles of rail line (the Lines). SSPR states 
that the Lines consist of: (1) The Colfax-Moscow Line (a) between 
milepost 3.0 at Colfax, Wash., and milepost 18.7 at Pullman, Wash., and 
(b) between milepost 75.9 at Pullman and milepost 84.05 at the 
Washington-Idaho state line; (2) the Washington, Idaho, and Montana 
Line between milepost 0.0 at Palouse, Wash., and milepost 3.85 at the 
Washington state line; and (3) the Palouse and Lewiston Line between 
milepost 1.0 at Marshall, Wash., and milepost 75.9 at Pullman.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Although SSPR's original submission stated that the Lines 
are ``located in Washington and Idaho,'' (Verified Notice 1), on 
July 12, 2019, SSPR filed a supplement clarifying that the Lines are 
located within the State of Washington and none are located in the 
State of Idaho.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    SSPR states that it will shortly enter into an agreement with WSDOT 
to lease the Lines from WSDOT and SSPR will be the operator of the 
Lines.
    According to SSPR, the lease does not contain any provision that 
prohibits SSPR from interchanging traffic with a third party or limits 
SSPR's ability to interchange with a third party.
    SSPR certifies that its projected revenues as a result of the 
transaction will not result in the creation of a Class II or Class I 
rail carrier and will not exceed $5 million.
    The earliest this transaction may be consummated is August 11, 2019 
(30 days after the verified notice of exemption was filed).\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The date of SSPR's supplement (July 12, 2019) will be 
considered the filing date for the purposes of calculating the 
effective date of the exemption.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, 
the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption 
under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a 
petition to revoke will not automatically stay the effectiveness of the 
exemption. Petitions for stay must be filed no later than August 2, 
2019 (at least seven days before the exemption becomes effective).
    All pleadings, referring to Docket No. FD 36325, must be filed with 
the Surface Transportation Board either via e-filing or in writing 
addressed to 395 E Street SW, Washington, DC 20423-0001. In addition, a 
copy of each pleading must be served on SSPR's representative, Karl 
Morell, Karl Morell and Associates, 440 1st Street NW, Suite 440, 
Washington, DC 20001.
    According to SSPR, this action is categorically excluded from 
environmental review under 49 CFR 1105.6(c) and from historic 
preservation reporting requirements under 49 CFR 1105.8(b)(1).
