Assistance for the hearing impaired is available through the Federal Relay Service at (800) 877–8339. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 14, 2019, the Association of American Railroads (AAR) filed a petition to institute a rulemaking to adopt procedural rules that would require a cost-benefit analysis in certain Board rulemaking proceedings and would set SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00094 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 certain data requirements. In response to the petition, the Board received filings from the Competitive Enterprise Institute, the Western Coal Traffic League, the Joint Shippers,1 the National Grain and Feed Association, the American Forest & Paper Association, and the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers. On July 10, 2019, the Board issued a decision waiving the provision at 49 CFR 1110.2(d), which requires the Board to rule on a petition for a rulemaking within 120 days of the filing of the petition. In that decision, the Board deferred action to allow the Board to further consider the issues raised in the petition.2 The Board continues to consider the practices at other agencies, including other independent agencies that do not have cost-benefit analysis procedural rules,3 and the Board now finds that it would be helpful to solicit additional information. To assist the Board’s evaluation of whether and how particular cost-benefit analysis approaches might be more formally integrated into its rulemaking process, the Board seeks the following information: 1. Methods. The Board requests information on specific methods—not just general criteria and processes in best practices guides, which the Board has reviewed—that would assist in the qualitative or quantitative analysis of a final rule by the Board. Commenters may wish to draw upon academic literature, other economic regulatory agencies’ analyses, or other sources to 1 The Joint Shippers consist of the Agricultural Retailers Association, American Chemistry Council, American Malting Barley Association, Corn Refiners Association, Freight Rail Customer Alliance, Industrial Minerals Association—North America, Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, Louisiana Chemical Association, National Association of Chemical Distributors, National Industrial Transportation League, Private Railcar Food and Beverage Association, The Chlorine Institute, The Fertilizer Institute, and the Vinyl Institute. 2 AAR filed a petition for reconsideration of the Board’s July 10 decision. Because the 120-day deadline waived in the Board’s decision passed on July 12, 2019, the petition to reconsider the waiver is moot. Further, with respect to the additional Board action AAR requests in its reconsideration petition, that request is also moot because, in this decision, the Board is soliciting additional information as specified, infra, so that it can give further consideration to the AAR petition to institute a rulemaking, just as the Board indicated it would do in its July 10 decision. The Board expects the responses to this solicitation will be helpful to its consideration of the issues, and at this time, the Board is not denying or granting the AAR petition to institute a rulemaking. 3 Neither the Board’s authorizing legislation nor the Administrative Procedure Act requires the Board to conduct formal cost-benefit analysis.
