Effective 10/01/2019, small businesses employing military reservists may apply for economic injury disaster loans if those employees are called up to active duty during a period of military conflict or have received notice of an expected call-up, and those employees are essential to the success of the small business daily operations. The purpose of the MREIDL program is to provide funds to an eligible small business to meet its ordinary and necessary operating expenses that it could have met, but is unable to meet, because an essential employee was called-up or expects to be called-up to active duty in his or her role as a military reservist. These loans are intended only to provide the amount of working capital needed by a small business to pay its necessary obligations as they mature until operations return to normal after the essential employee is released from active duty. For information/applications contact 1– 800–659–2955 or visit www.sba.gov. Applications for the Military Reservist Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program may be filed at the above address.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: On January 23, 2018, the President imposed a safeguard measure on imports of certain solar products pursuant to a section 201 investigation. On February 14, 2018, the U.S. Trade Representative established procedures for interested persons to request product-specific exclusions from application of the safeguard measure. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00143 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 On June 13, 2019, the U.S. Trade Representative published a notice granting certain requests for exclusions and excluding the products at issue from the safeguard measure’s application. In particular, the U.S. Trade Representative excluded bifacial solar panels consisting only of bifacial solar cells. Since publication of that notice, the U.S. Trade Representative has evaluated this exclusion further and, after consultation with the Secretaries of Commerce and Energy, determined it will undermine the objectives of the safeguard measure. Accordingly, the U.S. Trade Representative has modified the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) to withdraw the exclusion of bifacial solar panels from application of the safeguard measure. The U.S. Trade Representative also has modified the HTSUS to make certain technical changes in connection with the safeguard measure. DATES: The withdrawal of the exclusion for bifacial solar panels from application of the safeguard measure and technical changes will apply as of October 28, 2019.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Background On January 23, 2018, the President issued Proclamation 9693 (83 FR 3541) to impose a safeguard measure under section 201 of the Trade Act of 1974 (19 U.S.C. 2251) with respect to certain crystalline silicon photovoltaic (CSPV) cells and other products (CSPV products) containing these cells. The Proclamation directed the U.S. Trade Representative to establish procedures for interested persons to request the exclusion of particular products from the safeguard measure. It also authorized the U.S. Trade Representative, after consultation with the Secretaries of Commerce and Energy, to exclude products by modifying the HTSUS with publication of a determination in the Federal Register regarding the exclusion of such products. On February 14, 2018, the U.S. Trade Representative issued a notice setting out the procedures to request a product exclusion and opened a public docket. See 83 FR 6670 (the February 2018 notice). Under the February 2018 notice, requests for exclusion were to identify the particular product in terms of its E:\FR\FM\09OCN1.SGM 09OCN1

SURFACE TRANSPORTATION BOARD

[Docket No. AB 303 (Sub-No. 53X)]


Wisconsin Central Ltd.--Discontinuance of Service Exemption--in 
Baraga County, Mich.

    Wisconsin Central Ltd. (WCL) has filed a verified notice of 
exemption under 49 CFR part 1152 subpart F--Exempt Abandonments and 
Discontinuances of Service to discontinue common carrier service over 
approximately 4.9 miles of rail line in Baraga County, Mich., extending

[[Page 54244]]

between milepost 219.0 at L'Anse (southwest of the intersection of U.S. 
41 and Menge Creek Rd.) and milepost 223.9 at Baraga (the Line). The 
Line traverses U.S. Postal Service Zip Codes 49946 and 49908.
    WCL has certified that: (1) No local traffic has moved over the 
Line for at least two years; (2) overhead traffic (to the extent any 
exists) can be rerouted over other lines; (3) no formal complaint filed 
by a user of rail service on the Line (or by a state or local 
government entity acting on behalf of such user) regarding cessation of 
service over the Line either is pending with the Surface Transportation 
Board (Board) or with any U.S. District Court or has been decided in 
favor of 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) \1\ to subsidize continued rail service has 
been received, this exemption will be effective on November 8, 2019, 
unless stayed pending reconsideration. Petitions to stay that do not 
involve environmental issues must be filed by October 18, 2019, and 
formal expressions of intent to file an OFA to subsidize continued rail 
service under 49 CFR 1152.27(c)(2) \2\ must be filed by October 21, 
2019.\3\ Petitions for reconsideration must be filed by October 29, 
2019, with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street SW, 
Washington, DC 20423-0001.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Persons interested in submitting an OFA to subsidize 
continued rail service must first file a formal expression of intent 
to file an offer, indicating the intent to file an OFA for subsidy 
and demonstrating that they are preliminarily financially 
responsible. See 49 CFR 1152.27(c)(2)(i).
    \2\ The filing fee for OFAs can be found at 49 CFR 
1002.2(f)(25).
    \3\ 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A copy of any petition filed with the Board should be sent to WCL's 
representative, Bradon J. Smith, Fletcher & Sippel LLC, 29 North Wacker 
Drive, Suite 800, Chicago, IL 60606.
    If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, 
the exemption is void ab initio.
    Board decision and notices are available at www.stb.gov.

    Decided: October 2, 2019.
