Proposed Agency Information Collection Activities; Comment Request, 38249-38250 [2020-13716]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 123 / Thursday, June 25, 2020 / Notices Meeting Agenda The MCSAC will take up the following issues: • Task 20–1 will provide the MCSAC with the opportunity to discuss changes to the package and small goods delivery sector. A number of companies are now using small vehicles (e.g., vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating less than 10,000 pounds, etc.) to deliver goods and there appears to be a gap in safety oversight of both drivers and vehicles. For this task, members will hear from Agency experts on trends in the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) and Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) crash and highway safety data. • Task 20–2 will focus on the impact of the aging demographic of the commercial motor vehicle driver workforce on the truck and bus industries and whether this trend will exacerbate the driver shortage problem. Stakeholders have expressed concerns about the need to address the driver shortage, including options for allowing younger drivers to enter the industry. How would an aging workforce impact motor carriers’ ability to deliver services and goods safely in interstate commerce? For this task, FMCSA will consider data by agency experts on the distribution of age among CMV drivers. • Additionally, FMCSA will brief the MCSAC members on the impact of the legalization of hemp on the safety oversight of CMV drivers. While FMCSA’s safety regulations prohibit drivers’ use or transportation of illegal drugs, what actions should be considered to ensure motor carriers, drivers and enforcement officials have appropriate guidance concerning hemp and what happens if drivers test positive for tetrahydrocannabinol. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES II.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PHMSA received a special permit renewal request from FNG to renew the special permit and to continue the exemption from 49 CFR 193.2155(b): Structural requirements. Although the present special permit term ended on May 13, 2019, in accordance with 49 CFR 190.341(e), the special permit will not expire until final administrative action on the application for renewal has been taken. The original special permit was granted to FNG by PHMSA on May 13, 2014. FNG’s special permit renewal request, submitted on November 5, 2018, seeks to waive compliance from the requirements in 49 CFR 193.2155(b) that an LNG storage tank must not be located within one (1) mile from the ends, or 1⁄4 mile from the nearest point of an airport runway, whichever is longer. FNG installed one (1) 125,000-barrel (5,250,000 gallons) LNG storage tank at its existing storage and vaporization site (FNG LNG Plant) located in Fairbanks, Alaska and includes all ancillary facilities required to operate the LNG storage tank. The special permit renewal request includes a design change of the LNG storage tank at the FNG LNG Plant from a single containment LNG storage tank to a full-containment LNG storage tank. The secondary containment for the full-containment LNG storage tank consists of a concrete outer wall around the primary liquid container, whereas the design for the single containment LNG storage tank had an outer dike around the LNG storage tank as secondary containment. The 125,000barrel full-containment storage tank was also relocated from the original location of the single containment tank to better fit the property for setbacks and other E:\FR\FM\25JNN1.SGM 25JNN1
