30-Day Notice of Proposed Information Collection: Housing Finance Agency Risk-Sharing Program; OMB Control No.: 2502-0500, 68358-68359 [2020-23829]

Download as PDF 68358 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 209 / Wednesday, October 28, 2020 / Notices jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES individuals to conduct recurrent vetting against terrorism watch lists and databases to ensure that they continue to meet TSA requirements for having an HME. The exemption permits states to extend the expiration date for an HME for up to 180 days for individuals with an HME that expires on or after March 1, 2020, even if the individual did not initiate or complete submission of required information for an STA at least 60 days before expiration of the HME.12 With the extension TSA announces in this notice, states may continue this procedure through December 31, 2020. Individuals who were eligible for an extension of their HMEs during the initial exemption may continue to be eligible under this notice of extension of the exemption. Federal partners, States, the American Trucking Associations and the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators asked TSA to consider extending the exemption to align with the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s exemptions and waivers for drivers and States impacted by the COVID–19 crisis.13 Some states continue to face challenges maintaining regular operations at state Drivers Licensing Centers due to public health considerations related to the inability to predict how or where COVID–19 may spread in the future. Although most TSA enrollment centers have remained open during the pandemic, temporary closures in states and regions with limited enrollment center alternatives have complicated drivers’ ability to enroll for an STA. TSA’s enrollment provider has re-opened sites that were temporarily closed, but due to the uncertain nature of the spread of COVID–19, applicants may encounter renewed closures in the coming months. The extension will help ensure that drivers can continue to perform critical services during the pandemic. For these reasons, TSA is extending the exemption through December 31, 2020. 12 This exemption remains in effect through December 31, 2020, unless otherwise modified by TSA through a notice published in the Federal Register. TSA considered tying the duration of the exemption to the duration of a public health emergency declaration, but believes that the option for further modification as noted above provides clearer notice to and better certainty for states administering the program. 13 See FMCSA, Waiver in Response to the COVID–19 National Emergency—For States, CDL Holders, CLP Holders, and Interstate Drivers Operating Commercial Motor Vehicles (Sept. 18, 2020), available at https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/ emergency/waiver-response-covid-19-nationalemergency-states-cdl-holders-clp-holders-and-0.
