Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 5931-5932 [2022-02125]

Download as PDF jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with NOTICES1 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 22 / Wednesday, February 2, 2022 / Notices transportation policy of 49 U.S.C. 10101; and (2) either (a) the transaction or service is of limited scope, or (b) regulation is not needed to protect shippers from the abuse of market power. Detailed scrutiny of the proposed transaction through an application for review and approval under 49 U.S.C. 11323–25 is not necessary here to carry out the rail transportation policy. The proposed transaction would simply permit maintenance responsibilities for the Line to shift to BNSF, the sole user of the Line. As described in the petition, the lease is intended to streamline maintenance activity and would produce more efficient rail operations over the Line with no adverse competitive impacts. Therefore, the proposed transaction would promote a safe and efficient rail transportation system, (49 U.S.C. 10101(3)), foster sound economic conditions in transportation and ensure effective competition, (49 U.S.C. 10101(5)), encourage honest and efficient management, (49 U.S.C. 10101(9)), and promote energy conservation, (49 U.S.C. 10101(14)). Further, an exemption from the application process would expedite regulatory action, (49 U.S.C. 10101(2)), and reduce regulatory barriers to entry and exit, (49 U.S.C. 10101(7)). Other aspects of the rail transportation policy would not be adversely affected. Regulation of the proposed transaction is also not necessary to protect shippers from the abuse of market power.5 Nothing in the record indicates that any shipper would lose an existing rail service option as a result of the proposed lease transaction. According to the petition, the transaction will have no adverse impact on commercial or operational access to the Line. (See Pet. 5 (noting that the lease agreement specifically states that nothing contained in the lease would ‘‘amend, change or supersede the commercial access . . . terms as provided for in the Trackage Rights Agreement’’).) BNSF states that it will continue to provide common carrier service to shippers over the Line and that there will be no material change in the service provided to shippers, because the lease simply shifts the Line’s maintenance responsibilities to BNSF, the sole user of the Line. (Id. at 6.) Indeed, the lease transaction should benefit shippers by producing more efficient rail operations by streamlining the Line’s maintenance activities. Moreover, no shippers or other parties have filed any objections to the proposed transaction. Under 49 U.S.C. 10502(g), the Board may not use its exemption authority to relieve a carrier of its statutory obligation to protect the interests of employees. Accordingly, as a condition to granting this exemption, the Board will impose the standard employee protective conditions in Norfolk & Western Railway—Trackage Rights— Burlington Northern, Inc., 354 I.C.C. 605 (1978), as modified in Mendocino Coast Railway—Lease & Operate—California Western Railroad, 360 I.C.C. 653 (1980). The proposed lease is exempt from both the environmental reporting requirements under 49 CFR 1105.6(c) and the historic reporting requirements under 49 CFR 1105.8(b). It is ordered: 1. Under 49 U.S.C. 10502, the Board exempts from the prior approval requirements of 49 U.S.C. 11323–25 BNSF’s lease of the Line, subject to the employee protective conditions in Norfolk & Western Railway—Trackage Rights—Burlington Northern, Inc., 354 I.C.C. 605 (1978), as modified in Mendocino Coast Railway—Lease & Operate—California Western Railroad, 360 I.C.C. 653 (1980). 2. Notice of the exemption will be published in the Federal Register on February 2, 2022. 3. The exemption will become effective on March 4, 2022. 4. Petitions to stay must be filed by February 14, 2022. 5. Petitions for reconsideration and petitions to reopen must be filed by February 22, 2022. 5 Because the Board concludes that regulation is not needed to protect shippers from the abuse of market power, it is unnecessary to determine whether the transaction is limited in scope. See 49 U.S.C. 10502(a). SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:31 Feb 01, 2022 Jkt 256001 Decided: January 25, 2022. By the Board, Board Members Fuchs, Hedlund, Oberman, Primus, and Schultz.
