The Administrator of the FAA and the Director of NPS (or their designees) serve as ex officio members of the group. Representatives of the Administrator and Director serve alternating 1-year terms as chairman of the advisory group.

NPOAG members’ 3-year terms commence on the publication date of this Federal Register notice. No selection was made for the additional opening to represent Native American concerns.

Therefore, before appointing an applicant to serve on the NPOAG, the FAA and NPS will require the prospective candidate to certify that they are not a federally registered lobbyist.

(Navistar) Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), DOT. ACTION: Notice of application for exemption; request for comments. AGENCY: FMCSA announces that Navistar, Inc. (Navistar) has requested an exemption for five commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) drivers from the Federal requirement to hold a U.S. commercial driver’s license (CDL). The requested exemption will cover five Swedish Project Engineers who will test-drive commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) for Navistar within the United States. All five engineers work for Scania AB in Sweden (part of the Volkswagen Group), which is partnering with Navistar to develop improved fuel economy and emissions reductions. The Scania drivers all hold valid Swedish commercial licenses and need to testdrive Navistar vehicles on U.S. roads to better understand product requirements in ‘‘real world’’ environments and to verify results. Navistar believes the requirements for a Swedish commercial license ensure that operation under the exemption will likely achieve a level of safety equivalent to or greater than the level that would be obtained in the absence of the exemption. FMCSA requests public comments on Navistar’s application for exemption. DATES: Comments must be received on or before October 21, 2019.
