Legal Basis FMCSA has authority under 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315 to grant exemptions from certain Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs). FMCSA must publish a notice of each exemption request in the Federal Register (49 CFR 381.315(a)). The Agency must provide the public an opportunity to inspect the information relevant to the application, including any safety analyses that have VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:56 Apr 29, 2020 Jkt 250001 been conducted. The Agency must also provide an opportunity for public comment on the request. The Agency reviews safety analyses and public comments submitted, and determines whether granting the exemption would likely achieve a level of safety equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be achieved by the current regulation (49 CFR 381.305). The decision of the Agency must be published in the Federal Register (49 CFR 381.315(b)) with the reasons for denying or granting the application and, if granted, the name of the person or class of persons receiving the exemption, and the regulatory provision from which the exemption is granted. The notice must also specify the effective period and explain the terms and conditions of the exemption. The exemption may be renewed (49 CFR 381.300(b)). III. Background The SC&RA, requested a renewal of its exemption from the mandatory rest break requirement of 49 CFR 395.3(a)(3)(ii) on behalf of all specialized carriers and drivers responsible for the transportation of loads exceeding standard legal weight and dimensional limits—oversize/ overweight (OS/OW) loads—that require a permit issued by a government authority. The exemption was first published on June 18, 2015 (80 FR 34957) with an expiration date of June 18, 2017. On November 14, 2016 (81 FR 79556), FMCSA announced the extension of the SC&RA exemption notice that was published on June 18, 2015. The Agency extended the expiration date of the exemption to June 17, 2020 in response to section 5206(b)(2)(A) of the ‘‘Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act’’ (FAST Act). That section extends the expiration date of all HOS exemptions in effect on the date of enactment to five years from the date of issuance of the exemptions. SC&RA has requested a renewal of the exemption that would be effective from June 18, 2020 through June 18, 2025. A copy of SC&RA’s request is in the docket referenced at the beginning of this notice. IV.

II. Background On March 5, 2020, FMCSA published a notice announcing its decision to renew exemptions for 95 individuals from the vision requirement in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10) to operate a CMV in interstate commerce and requested comments from the public (85 FR 12959). The public comment period ended on April 6, 2020, and no comments were received. FMCSA has evaluated the eligibility of these applicants and determined that renewing these exemptions would achieve a level of safety equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be achieved by complying with the current regulation § 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 no comments in this proceeding. IV. Conclusion Based on its evaluation of the 95 renewal exemption applications and comments received, FMCSA confirms its decision to exempt the following drivers from the vision requirement in § 391.41(b)(10).

Copies of the 2021 Grant Application Package and Guidelines, IRS Publication 3319 (Rev. 5–2020), can be downloaded from the IRS internet site at www.irs.gov/ advocate or ordered by calling the IRS Distribution Center toll-free at 1–800– 829–3676. (Note, however, that the Distribution Center may be closed due to COVID–19. If so, the publication will only be available online.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Pursuant to Internal Revenue Code (IRC) section 7526, the IRS will annually award up to $6,000,000 (unless otherwise provided by specific Congressional appropriation) to qualified organizations, subject to the limitations set forth in the statute. Grants may be awarded for the development, expansion, or continuation of low-income taxpayer clinics. For calendar year 2020, Congress appropriated a total of $12,000,000 in federal funds for LITC matching grants. See Public Law 116– 93, 133 Stat. 2317, 2439 (2019). A qualified organization may receive a matching grant of up to $100,000 per year. A qualified organization is one that represents low-income taxpayers in controversies with the IRS and informs individuals for whom English is a second language (ESL taxpayers) of their taxpayer rights and responsibilities, and does not charge more than a nominal fee PO 00000 Frm 00149 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 for its services (except for reimbursement of actual costs incurred). Examples of a qualified organization include (1) a clinical program at an accredited law, business, or accounting school whose students represent lowincome taxpayers in tax controversies with the IRS and (2) an organization exempt from tax under IRC section 501(a) whose employees and volunteers represent low-income taxpayers in controversies with the IRS and may also make referrals to qualified volunteers to provide representation. A clinic will be treated as representing low-income taxpayers in controversies with the IRS if at least 90 percent of the taxpayers represented by the clinic have incomes that do not exceed 250 percent of the federal poverty level, taking into account geographic location and family size. Federal poverty guidelines are published annually in the Federal Register. See, for example, 85 FR 3060 (Jan. 17, 2020). In addition, the amount in controversy for the tax year to which the controversy relates generally cannot exceed the amount specified in IRC section 7463 (currently $50,000) for eligibility for special small tax case procedures in the United States Tax Court. The IRS may award grants to qualified organizations to fund one-year, two-year, or three-year project periods. Grant funds may be awarded for startup expenditures incurred by new clinics during the grant year. IRC section 7526(c)(5) requires dollar-for-dollar matching funds. Mission Statement Low Income Taxpayer Clinics ensure the fairness and integrity of the tax system for taxpayers who are lowincome or speak English as a second language by: Providing pro bono representation on their behalf in tax disputes with the IRS; educating them about their rights and responsibilities as taxpayers; and identifying and advocating for issues that impact them. Selection Consideration Despite the IRS’s efforts to foster parity in availability and accessibility in the selection of organizations receiving LITC matching grants and the continued increase in clinic services nationwide, there remain communities that are underrepresented by clinics. Although each application and request for continued funding for the 2021 grant year will be given due consideration, the IRS is particularly interested in applicants from the following underserved geographic areas: Arizona-Central California-Kern County E:\FR\FM\30APN1.SGM 30APN1

B. Privacy Act

    In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 553(c), DOT solicits comments from the 
public to better inform its rulemaking process. DOT posts these 
comments, without edit, including any personal information the

II. Background

    On March 5, 2020, FMCSA published a notice announcing its decision 
to renew exemptions for 95 individuals from the vision requirement in 
49 CFR 391.41(b)(10) to operate a CMV in interstate commerce and 
requested comments from the public (85 FR 12959). The public comment 
period ended on April 6, 2020, and no comments were received.
    FMCSA has evaluated the eligibility of these applicants and 
determined that renewing these exemptions would achieve a level of 
safety equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be achieved 
by complying with the current regulation Sec.  391.41(b)(10).
    The physical qualification standard for drivers regarding vision 
found in Sec.  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[deg] 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 no comments in this proceeding.

IV. Conclusion

    Based on its evaluation of the 95 renewal exemption applications 
and comments received, FMCSA confirms its decision to exempt the 
following drivers from the vision requirement in Sec.  391.41(b)(10).
    As of April 1, 2020, and in accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and
