[[Page 39969]]

verified notice of exemption pursuant to 49 CFR 1150.41 to: (1) 
Continue to lease from The Kanas City Southern Railway Company (KCS) 
and operate approximately 26.5 miles of rail line between milepost 
133.0 near Bay Springs, Miss., and milepost 159.5 near Newton, Miss. 
(Bay Springs Branch), and (2) lease from KCS and operate approximately 
114.2 miles of rail line from milepost 87.2 at the switch south of the 
Columbus & Greenville Railway crossing near West Point, Miss., to 
milepost 161.7 near Newton (Louisville Subdivision), and approximately 
15.5 miles of rail line from milepost 0.0 near Union, Miss., to 
milepost 15.5 near Sebastopol, Miss. (Pearl River Industrial Lead).
    MSR, which has leased and operated the Bay Springs Branch since 
2005,\1\ states that it has reached an agreement with KCS to modify the 
lease and extend its term to November 30, 2034, through an amendment. 
MSR states that it has also agreed with KCS to a separate lease for the 
Louisville Subdivision and Pearl River Industrial Lead with a term 
expiring on July 19, 2030. According to MSR, it will provide all common 
carrier service on the lines subject to these leases.

    \1\ See Miss. S. R.R.--Lease & Operation Exemption--Kan. City S. 
Ry., Docket No. FD 34684 (STB served Apr. 21, 2005) (authorizing 
original lease and operation of the Bay Springs Branch); Miss. S. 
R.R.--Lease & Operation Exemption--Kan. City S. Ry., Docket No. FD 
36060 (STB served Sept. 9, 2016) (authorizing continued lease and 
operation).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    MSR certifies that the amended lease for the Bay Springs Branch and 
the new lease for the Louisville Subdivision and Pearl River Industrial 
Lead contain interchange commitments.\2\ Accordingly, MSR has provided 
additional information regarding the interchange commitments, as 
required by 49 CFR 1150.43(h).\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ A copy of the amended lease and the new lease were submitted 
under seal. See 49 CFR 1150.43(h)(1).
    \3\ According to the verified notice, the only interchange 
affected by the interchange commitments is with the Columbus & 
Greenville Railway (CAGY) on the Louisville Subdivision at West 
Point, but there is currently no track connection between the 
Louisville Subdivision and CAGY's rail line, and the segment of the 
Louisville Subdivision leading to that location is out of service.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    MSR certifies that its projected revenues as a result of this 
transaction will not result in the creation of a Class II or Class I 
rail carrier but states that its projected annual revenues will exceed 
$5 million following the transaction. Pursuant to 49 CFR 1150.42(e), if 
a carrier's projected annual revenues will exceed $5 million, it must, 
at least 60 days before the exemption becomes effective, post a notice 
of its intent to undertake the proposed transaction at the workplace of 
the employees on the affected lines, serve a copy of the notice on the 
national offices of the labor unions with employees on the affected 
lines, and certify to the Board that it has done so. On May 20, 2020, 
MSR certified that on May 19 it provided the required notice with 
respect to its proposed lease of the Louisville Subdivision and Pearl 
River Industrial Lead. However, along with its verified notice of 
exemption, MSR filed a petition requesting a waiver of the 60-day 
advance labor notice requirements with respect to its amended lease for 
the Bay Springs Branch. MSR's petition for waiver will be addressed in 
a separate decision. The Board will establish the effective date of the 
exemption in its separate decision on the waiver request.
    If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, 
the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption 
under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a 
petition to revoke will not automatically stay the effectiveness of the 
exemption. Petitions for stay must be filed no later than July 10, 
2020.
    All pleadings, referring to Docket No. FD 36407, must be filed with 
the Surface Transportation Board either via e-filing or in writing 
addressed to 395 E Street SW, Washington, DC 20423-0001. In addition, a 
copy of each pleading must be served on MSR's representative, Bradon J. 
Smith, Fletcher & Sippel LLC, 29 North Wacker Drive, Suite 800, 
Chicago, IL 60606-3208.
    According to MSR, this action is categorically excluded from 
environmental review under 49 CFR 1105.6(c) and from historic 
preservation reporting requirements under 49 CFR 1105.8(b).
