Privacy Act In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31315(b)(6), DOT solicits comments from the public on the exemption request. DOT posts these comments, without edit, including any personal information the commenter provides, to www.regulations.gov, as described in the system of records notice (DOT/ALL– 14 FDMS), which can be reviewed at www.dot.gov/privacy. II. Background On January 10, 2022, FMCSA published a notice announcing its decision to renew exemptions for 91 individuals from the vision requirement in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10) to operate a CMV in interstate commerce and requested comments from the public (87 FR 1250). The public comment period ended on February 9, 2022, and no comments were received. FMCSA has evaluated the eligibility of these applicants and determined that renewing these exemptions would achieve a level of safety equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be achieved by complying with the current regulation § 391.41(b)(10). The physical qualification standard for drivers regarding vision found in § 391.41(b)(10) states that a person is physically qualified to drive a CMV if that person has distant visual acuity of at least 20/40 (Snellen) in each eye without corrective lenses or visual acuity separately corrected to 20/40 (Snellen) or better with corrective lenses, distant binocular acuity of a least 20/40 (Snellen) in both eyes with or without corrective lenses, field of vision of at least 70° in the horizontal meridian in each eye, and the ability to recognize the colors of traffic signals and devices showing red, green, and amber. III. Discussion of Comments FMCSA received no comments in this proceeding. IV. Conclusion Based on its evaluation of the 91 renewal exemption applications and comments received, FMCSA confirms its decision to exempt the following drivers from the vision requirement in § 391.41(b)(10). As of February 9, 2022, and in accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315(b), the following 85 individuals have satisfied the renewal conditions for obtaining an exemption from the vision PO 00000 Frm 00109 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 11503 requirement in the FMCSRs for interstate CMV drivers (64 FR 40404; 64 FR 66962; 65 FR 33406; 65 FR 57234; 66 FR 53826; 66 FR 63289; 66 FR 66966; 68 FR 13360; 68 FR 52811; 68 FR 61860; 68 FR 64944; 68 FR 69434; 70 FR 12265; 70 FR 17504; 70 FR 30997; 70 FR 48797; 70 FR 53412; 70 FR 57353; 70 FR 61165; 70 FR 61493; 70 FR 67776; 70 FR 71884; 70 FR 72689; 70 FR 74102; 71 FR 4632; 72 FR 8417; 72 FR 27624; 72 FR 36099; 72 FR 39879; 72 FR 40362; 72 FR 52419; 72 FR 62897; 72 FR 64273; 73 FR 5259; 73 FR 15567; 73 FR 27015; 74 FR 19270; 74 FR 34394; 74 FR 37295; 74 FR 41971; 74 FR 43217; 74 FR 48343; 74 FR 49069; 74 FR 53581; 74 FR 57551; 74 FR 60021; 74 FR 60022; 74 FR 62632; 75 FR 1451; 75 FR 4623; 75 FR 19674; 75 FR 72863; 75 FR 77492; 76 FR 2190; 76 FR 5425; 76 FR 7894; 76 FR 9856; 76 FR 17481; 76 FR 20076; 76 FR 20078; 76 FR 25762; 76 FR 25766; 76 FR 2812576 FR 37885; 76 FR 53708; 76 FR 54530; 76 FR 62143; 76 FR 64164; 76 FR 64171; 76 FR 66123; 76 FR 70210; 76 FR 70215; 76 FR 73769; 76 FR 75940; 76 FR 75942; 77 FR 545; 77 FR 3547; 77 FR 3554; 77 FR 17109; 77 FR 23797; 77 FR 27845; 77 FR 74273; 78 FR 800; 78 FR 12813; 78 FR 16762; 78 FR 20376; 78 FR 24300; 78 FR 34141; 78 FR 34143; 78 FR 37270; 78 FR 47818; 78 FR 52602; 78 FR 62935; 78 FR 63302; 78 FR 63307; 78 FR 64274; 78 FR 64280; 78 FR 66099; 78 FR 67452; 78 FR 67454; 78 FR 67460; 78 FR 68137; 78 FR 76395; 78 FR 77778; 78 FR 77780; 78 FR 77782; 78 FR 78475; 78 FR 78477; 79 FR 2247; 79 FR 2248; 79 FR 3919; 79 FR 4803; 79 FR 23797; 79 FR 53708; 79 FR 73687; 80 FR 2473; 80 FR 3723; 80 FR 12248; 80 FR 14223; 80 FR 15863; 80 FR 18693; 80 FR 18696; 80 FR 26139; 80 FR 29149; 80 FR 29152; 80 FR 31635; 80 FR 31640; 80 FR 33011; 80 FR 37718; 80 FR 44188; 80 FR 48402; 80 FR 48409; 80 FR 49302; 80 FR 59225; 80 FR 59230; 80 FR 62161; 80 FR 63869; 80 FR 67472; 80 FR 67481; 80 FR 70060; 80 FR 76345; 80 FR 79414; 80 FR 80443; 81 FR 1284; 81 FR 11642; 81 FR 15401; 81 FR 16265; 81 FR 20435; 81 FR 44680; 81 FR 60117; 81 FR 70253; 81 FR 81230; 81 FR 86063; 81 FR 96165; 81 FR 96180; 81 FR 96191; 82 FR 12683; 82 FR 13045; 82 FR 13048; 82 FR 15277; 82 FR 18949; 82 FR 18956; 82 FR 20962; 82 FR 22379; 82 FR 24430; 82 FR 32919; 82 FR 33542; 82 FR 35050; 82 FR 37499; 82 FR 37504; 82 FR 43647; 82 FR 47309; 82 FR 47312; 83 FR 2289; 83 FR 2306; 83 FR 3861; 83 FR 4537; 83 FR 6922; 83 FR 6925; 83 FR 28325; 83 FR 33292; 83 FR 53724; 83 FR 54644; 84 FR 2326; 84 FR 10389; 84 FR 12665; 84 FR 16320; 84 FR 21393; 84 FR 21397; 84 FR 21401; 84 FR 23629; 84 FR 33801; 84 FR 46088; 84 FR 47045; 84 FR 47047; 84 FR 47050; 84 FR 47057; 84 FR 52160; 84 FR 52166; E:\FR\FM\01MRN1.SGM 01MRN1 jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with NOTICES1 11504 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 40 / Tuesday, March 1, 2022 / Notices 84 FR 58437; 84 FR 58448; 84 FR 58450; 84 FR 58453; 84 FR 66442; 84 FR 66444; 84 FR 68288; 84 FR 69814; 85 FR 4764; 85 FR 4769; 85 FR 8334): Dakota A.

ACTION: Notice of final disposition; grant of application for exemption. AGENCY: FMCSA announces its decision to grant the exemption request of the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA). AAMVA requested a multi-year exemption on behalf of the State Driver Licensing Agencies (SDLAs) in Maryland, New Hampshire, and Virginia to allow the three States to continue using revised Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) pre-trip vehicle inspection and revised control skills test procedures following the completion of field tests conducted under a waiver granted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). AAMVA believes that the requested exemption would enable these States to continue operating under the pilot model without the burden of reverting to the current CDL test model generating costs and delays associated with the reconfiguration of testing locations and retraining of CDL test examiners. FMCSA has analyzed the exemption application and the public comments and has determined that the exemption, subject to the terms and conditions imposed, will achieve a level of safety that is equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be achieved absent such exemption. DATES: The exemption is effective February 22, 2022, and expires on February 22, 2027.

Legal Basis FMCSA has authority under 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315(b) to grant exemptions from certain Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs). FMCSA must publish a notice of each exemption request in the Federal Register (49 CFR 381.315(a)). The Agency must provide the public an opportunity to inspect the information relevant to the application, including any safety analyses that have been conducted. The Agency must also provide an opportunity for public comment on the request. FMCSA reviews safety analyses and public comments submitted to the Agency and determines whether granting the exemption would likely achieve a level of safety equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be achieved by the current regulation (49 CFR 381.305). The Agency’s decision must be published in the Federal Register (49 CFR 381.315(b)) with the reasons for denying or granting the application and, if granted, the name of the person or class of persons receiving the exemption, and the regulatory provision from which the exemption is granted. The notice must also specify the effective period (up to 5 years) and explain the terms and conditions of the exemption. The exemption may be renewed (49 CFR 381.300(b)). PO 00000 Frm 00111 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 11505 III. Background Current Regulatory Requirements The CDL requirements in 49 CFR part 383, subpart G, Required Knowledge and Skills, specifically section 49 CFR 383.133(c)(1) and (2), require the following: Test methods: (1) A State must develop, administer and score the skills tests based solely on the information and standards contained in the driver and examiner manuals referred to in § 383.131(a) and (b); and (2) a State must use the standardized scores and instructions for administering the tests contained in the examiner manual referred to in § 383.131(b). Applicant’s Request On October 25, 2021, the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) requested that FMCSA consider granting SDLAs in Maryland, New Hampshire, and Virginia (the pilot States) a multi-year exemption to allow these States to continue using revised CDL vehicle inspection and revised control skills procedures they had previously evaluated during field tests covered by a waiver from FMCSA. The requested exemption would permit these States to continue CDL testing without the burden of reverting back to the older CDL test model which would generate costs and delays associated with reconfiguration of testing locations and retraining of CDL test examiners. Previously, AAMVA requested a 90day waiver from 49 CFR 383.133 to enable the pilot States to complete field tests of the new CDL skills test procedures. FMCSA determined that the waiver achieved an equivalent level of safety to the current regulations and therefore granted the request for the period of June 1, 2021, through September 1, 2021, for the first round of field tests; the Agency granted a separate waiver to cover additional field tests through December 1, 2021. FMCSA subsequently granted another waiver, effective through February 22, 2022, to avoid requiring the three States to revert to the current skills test procedures while the Agency considered the multiyear exemption. In its current request, AAMVA is seeking a multi-year exemption to allow Maryland, New Hampshire, and Virginia to continue using the revised CDL vehicle inspection and revised control skills procedures once the field test waiver period has concluded. According to AAMVA, this exemption would permit the pilot States to continue CDL testing without the burden of reverting back to the older E:\FR\FM\01MRN1.SGM 01MRN1

B. Privacy Act

    In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31315(b)(6), DOT solicits comments 
from the public on the exemption request. DOT posts these comments, 
without edit, including any personal information the commenter 
provides, to www.regulations.gov, as described in the system of records 
notice (DOT/ALL-14 FDMS), which can be reviewed at www.dot.gov/privacy.

II. Background

    On January 10, 2022, FMCSA published a notice announcing its 
decision to renew exemptions for 91 individuals from the vision 
requirement in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10) to operate a CMV in interstate 
commerce and requested comments from the public (87 FR 1250). The 
public comment period ended on February 9, 2022, and no comments were 
received.
    FMCSA has evaluated the eligibility of these applicants and 
determined that renewing these exemptions would achieve a level of 
safety equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be achieved 
by complying with the current regulation Sec.  391.41(b)(10).
    The physical qualification standard for drivers regarding vision 
found in Sec.  391.41(b)(10) states that a person is physically 
qualified to drive a CMV if that person has distant visual acuity of at 
least 20/40 (Snellen) in each eye without corrective lenses or visual 
acuity separately corrected to 20/40 (Snellen) or better with 
corrective lenses, distant binocular acuity of a least 20/40 (Snellen) 
in both eyes with or without corrective lenses, field of vision of at 
least 70[deg] in the horizontal meridian in each eye, and the ability 
to recognize the colors of traffic signals and devices showing red, 
green, and amber.

III. Discussion of Comments

    FMCSA received no comments in this proceeding.

IV. Conclusion

    Based on its evaluation of the 91 renewal exemption applications 
and comments received, FMCSA confirms its decision to exempt the 
following drivers from the vision requirement in Sec.  391.41(b)(10).
    As of February 9, 2022, and in accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) 
and 31315(b), the following 85 individuals have satisfied the renewal 
conditions for obtaining an exemption from the vision requirement in 
the FMCSRs for interstate CMV drivers (64 FR 40404; 64 FR 66962; 65 FR
