Background On April 7, 2020, FMCSA published a notice announcing its decision to renew exemptions for 13 individuals from the hearing standard in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(11) to operate a CMV in interstate commerce and requested comments from the public (85 FR 19573). The public comment period ended on May 7, 2020, and no comments were received. PO 00000 Frm 00087 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30005 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 § 391.41(b)(11). The physical qualification standard for drivers regarding hearing found in § 391.41(b)(11) states that a person is physically qualified to drive a CMV if that person first perceives a forced whispered voice in the better ear at not less than 5 feet with or without the use of a hearing aid or, if tested by use of an audiometric device, does not have an average hearing loss in the better ear greater than 40 decibels at 500 Hz, 1,000 Hz, and 2,000 Hz with or without a hearing aid when the audiometric device is calibrated to American National Standard (formerly ASA Standard) Z24.5—1951. This standard was adopted in 1970 and was revised in 1971 to allow drivers to be qualified under this standard while wearing a hearing aid, 35 FR 6458, 6463 (April 22, 1970) and 36 FR 12857 (July 3, 1971). III. Discussion of Comments FMCSA received no comments in this proceeding. IV. Conclusion Based upon its evaluation of the 13 renewal exemption applications, FMCSA announces its decision to exempt the following drivers from the hearing requirement in § 391.41(b)(11). As of March 27, 2020, and in accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315(b), the following 13 individuals have satisfied the renewal conditions for obtaining an exemption from the hearing requirement in the FMCSRs for interstate CMV drivers (85 FR 19573): Deontae Blanks (TX) Marquarius Boyd (MS) Arthur Brown (FL) Michael Bunjer (MD) Marco Cisneros (CA) Keith Drown (ID) Edison Garcia (MD) David Garland (ME) James Gooch (MO) Joseph Piros (CA) Robert Quintero (IL) Ronald Rumsey (IA) Charles Wirick (MD) The drivers were included in docket number FMCSA–2013–0124, FMCSA– 2013–0125, FMCSA–2013–0126, FMCSA–2014–0104, FMCSA–2015– 0327, FMCSA–2016–0003, FMCSA– 2017–0057, or FMCSA–2017–0058.
