To address whether this condition adequately protects affected employees, a petition for partial revocation under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) must be filed. Provided no formal expression of intent to file an offer of financial assistance (OFA) has been received,3 the exemption will be effective on April 16, 2021, unless stayed pending reconsideration. Petitions to stay that do not involve environmental issues must be filed by March 26, 2021.4 Formal expressions of intent to file an OFA under 49 CFR 1152.27(c)(2), and interim trail use/rail banking requests under 49 CFR 1152.29 must be filed by March 29, 2021.5 Petitions to reopen or requests for public use conditions under 49 CFR 1152.28 must be filed by April 6, 2021.

See 49 CFR 1152.27(c)(2)(i). 4 The Board will grant a stay if an informed decision on environmental issues (whether raised by a party or by the Board’s Office of Environmental Analysis (OEA) in its independent investigation) cannot be made before the exemption’s effective date. See Exemption of Out-of-Serv. Rail Lines, 5 I.C.C.2d 377 (1989).
