Watco Holdings, Inc. (Watco), a noncarrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(2) to continue in control of Verdigris 1 Public and confidential versions of the Agreement were filed with the verified notice. The confidential version was submitted under seal concurrently with a motion for protective order, which is addressed in a separate decision.

This transaction is related to a verified notice of exemption filed concurrently in Verdigris Southern Railroad, L.L.C.—Lease and Operation Exemption—Track in Rogers County, Okla., Docket No. FD 36571, in which VESO seeks to lease from the City of Tulsa–Rogers County Port Authority (the Port), and to commence common carrier operations over, approximately 13,883 feet of track owned by the Port in Rogers County, Okla. The transaction may be consummated on or after February 6, 2022, the effective date of the exemption (30 days after the verified notice was filed). According to the verified notice of exemption, Watco currently controls indirectly 40 Class III railroads and one Class II railroad, collectively operating in 28 states. For a complete list of these rail carriers and the states in which they operate, see the Appendix to Watco’s January 7, 2022 verified notice of exemption, available at www.stb.gov. Watco represents that: (1) The rail line to be operated by VESO does not connect with the rail lines of any of the rail carriers currently controlled by Watco; (2) this transaction is not part of a series of anticipated transactions that would connect VESO with any railroad in the Watco corporate family; and (3) the transaction does not involve a Class I rail carrier. The proposed transaction is therefore exempt from the prior approval requirements of 49 U.S.C. 11323 pursuant to 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(2). Under 49 U.S.C. 10502(g), the Board may not use its exemption authority to relieve a rail carrier of its statutory obligation to protect the interests of its employees. Because the transaction involves the control of one Class II and one or more Class III rail carriers, the transaction is subject to the labor protection requirements of 49 U.S.C. 11326(b) and Wisconsin Central Ltd.— Acquisition Exemption—Lines of Union Pacific Railroad, 2 S.T.B. 218 (1997). 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 January 28, 2022 (at least seven days before the exemption becomes effective).

The FAA determined the request to release property at the Ottumwa Regional Airport (OTM) submitted by the Sponsor meets the procedural requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration and the release of the property does not and will not impact future aviation needs at the airport.

The release of land is necessary to comply with Federal Aviation Administration Grant Assurances that do not allow federally acquired airport property to be used for non-aviation purposes. The sale of the subject property will result in the land at the Ottumwa Regional Airport (OTM) being changed from aeronautical to nonaeronautical use and release the lands from the conditions of the Airport Improvement Program Grant Agreement Grant Assurances in order to dispose of the land. In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 47107(c)(2)(B)(i) and (iii), the airport will receive fair market value for the property, which will be subsequently reinvested in another eligible airport improvement project for general aviation use.

ACTION: Grant of petition. AGENCY: Hankook Tire America Corporation (Hankook) has determined that certain Hankook Dynapro MT2 tires, do not fully comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 139, New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles. Hankook filed a noncompliance report dated February 19, 2020, and subsequently petitioned NHTSA on March 11, 2020, for a decision that the subject noncompliance is inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety. This notice announces the grant of Hankook’s petition. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jayton Lindley, Office of Vehicle Safety Compliance, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), (325) 655–0547, jayton.lindley@dot.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Overview Hankook has determined that certain Hankook Dynapro MT2 tires, do not fully comply with paragraph S5.5(f) of FMVSS No. 139, New pneumatic radial tires for light vehicles (49 CFR 571.139). Hankook filed a noncompliance report dated February 19, 2020, pursuant to 49 CFR part 573, Defect and Noncompliance Responsibility and Reports, and subsequently petitioned NHTSA on March 11, 2020, for an exemption from the notification and remedy requirements of 49 U.S.C. Chapter 301 on the basis that this noncompliance is inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety, pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h) and 49 CFR part 556, Exemption for Inconsequential Defect or Noncompliance. Notice of receipt of Hankook’s petition was published with a 30-day public comment period, on August 28, 2020, in the Federal Register (85 FR 53436). One comment was received. To view the petition and all supporting documents log onto the Federal Docket Management System (FDMS) website at https://www.regulations.gov/. Then follow the online search instructions to locate docket number ‘‘NHTSA–2020– 0020.’’ PO 00000 Frm 00101 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 II. Tires Involved Approximately 175 Hankook Dynapro MT2 tires, size LT215/85R16, manufactured between October 20, 2019, and November 30, 2019, are potentially involved. III. Noncompliance Hankook explains that the noncompliance is that the subject tires were marked with the incorrect number of nylon plies in the tread; and, therefore, do not meet the requirements of paragraph S5.5(f) of FMVSS No. 139. Specifically, the tires were marked ‘‘TREAD 2 STEEL + 2 POLYESTER + 1 NYLON; SIDEWALL 2 POLYESTER’’, when they should have been marked ‘‘TREAD 2 STEEL + 2 POLYESTER + 2 NYLON; SIDEWALL 2 POLYESTER.’’ IV. Rule Requirements Paragraph S5.5(f) of FMVSS No. 139, includes the requirements relevant to this petition. Each tire must be marked on one sidewall with the actual number of plies in the sidewall and the actual number of plies in the tread area, if different, as specified in paragraph S5.5(f). V. Summary of Hankook’s Petition The following views and arguments presented in this section, ‘‘V. Summary of Hankook’s Petition,’’ are the views and arguments provided by Hankook and do not reflect the views of the Agency. In its petition, Hankook describes the subject noncompliance and contends that the noncompliance is inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety. In support of its petition, Hankook offers the following reasoning: 1. The incorrect ply labeling information does not affect the operational safety of vehicles on which the tires are mounted. 2. The tires meet or exceed the performance requirements of FMVSS No. 139, and they otherwise comply with the labeling and performance requirements of FMVSS No. 139. 3. Hankook is not aware of any warranty claims, field reports, customer complaints, or any incidents, accidents, or injuries related to the subject condition. 4. Hankook cites the Transportation Recall, Enhancement, Accountability and Documentation (TREAD) Act (Pub. L. 106–414) and several of NHTSA’s past grant notices of petitions for decisions of inconsequential noncompliance concerning the mislabeling of ply information and contend those are similar to the subject petition. Hankook states that NHTSA has routinely concluded the number of E:\FR\FM\21JAN1.SGM 21JAN1
