Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 30 / Thursday, February 13, 2020 / Notices December 4, 2019, final rule: Streamlining and Modernizing Certified Development Company Program (504 Loan Program) Corporate Governance Requirements (84 FR 66287). SBA also made minor edits to this form to clarify reporting instructions. The burden hours to complete Form 2233 are unchanged. With the cancellation of Form 2234 (Parts A, B, and C), SBA is proposing to incorporate the non-duplicative questions into SBA Form 1244, which is approved under OMB Control Number 3245–0071. SBA is publishing a separate Federal Register notice to address the revisions to that information collection. The specific rationale for cancelling Form 2234 (Parts A, B, and C) is as follows: jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES —Form 2234 (Part A): This form serves as a cover sheet for the Form 2234 (Part B). Most of the information collected on this form is collected on the current SBA Form 1244; any information that is not duplicative will be incorporated into that form. —Form 2234 (Part B): This form collects quantifiable metrics for the application in addition to the impacts expected to be gained as a result of the project. Most of the information is already collected on Form 1244, including the credit memorandum; any non-duplicative information will be incorporated into the revised Form 1244. —Form 2234 (Part C): This form is a checklist comprised of yes/no questions. The information collected is used to determine the eligibility of the applicant and the 504 project. The content of this form will be incorporated into the SBA Form 1244. The information collected will remain substantially unchanged. Following the cancellation of Part C, some of the information will be submitted as part of the credit memorandum, which is currently an exhibit to the SBA Form 1244, and other information will be submitted as a new exhibit to the SBA Form 1244. Solicitation of Public Comments: SBA is requesting comments on (i) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the agency to properly perform its functions; (ii) whether the burden estimates are accurate; (iii) whether there are ways to minimize the burden, including through the use of automated techniques or other forms of information technology; and (iv) whether there are ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information.

AGENCY: FMCSA announces its decision to exempt 11 individuals from the vision requirement in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) to operate a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) in interstate commerce. They are unable to meet the vision requirement in one eye for various reasons. The exemptions enable these individuals to operate CMVs in interstate commerce without meeting the vision requirement in one eye. DATES: The exemptions were applicable on January 22, 2020.

Viewing Documents and Comments To view comments, as well as any documents mentioned in this notice as being available in the docket, go to http://www.regulations.gov/ docket?D=FMCSA-2019-0018 and choose the document to review. If you do not have access to the internet, you may view the docket online by visiting the Docket Operations in Room W12– 140 on the ground floor of the DOT West Building, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, Washington, DC 20590, between 9 PO 00000 Frm 00090 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 II. Background On December 19, 2019, FMCSA published a notice announcing receipt of applications from 11 individuals requesting an exemption from vision requirement in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10) and requested comments from the public (84 FR 69814). The public comment period ended on January 21, 2020, and one comment was received. FMCSA has evaluated the eligibility of these applicants and determined that granting the exemptions to these individuals would achieve a level of safety equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be achieved by complying with § 391.41(b)(10). The physical qualification standard for drivers regarding vision found in § 391.41(b)(10) states that a person is physically qualified to drive a CMV if that person has distant visual acuity of at least 20/40 (Snellen) in each eye without corrective lenses or visual acuity separately corrected to 20/40 (Snellen) or better with corrective lenses, distant binocular acuity of a least 20/40 (Snellen) in both eyes with or without corrective lenses, field of vision of at least 70° in the horizontal meridian in each eye, and the ability to recognize the colors of traffic signals and devices showing red, green, and amber. III. Discussion of Comments FMCSA received one comment in this proceeding. Matthew W submitted a comment that asks for clarification on the current process is by which individuals who are not U.S. Citizens may be able to acquire a license, and suggests that such individuals be required to hold an Operator’s License for some period of time prior to being eligible to operate a CMV. This comment is not related to Vision Exemptions and is outside the scope of the current notice. IV. Basis for Exemption Determination Under 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315(b), FMCSA may grant an exemption from the FMCSRs for no longer than a 5-year period if it finds E:\FR\FM\13FEN1.SGM 13FEN1
