FMCSA has analyzed the exemption application and 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.
General Motors LLC, Receipt of Third Petition for Inconsequentiality and Notice of Consolidation
Document Number: 2018-07188
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-04-09
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
On January 2, 2018, TK Holdings Inc. (Takata) filed a defect information report (DIR), in which it determined that a defect existed in certain passenger-side air bag inflators that it manufactured, including passenger inflators that it supplied to General Motors, LLC (GM) for use in certain GMT900 vehicles. GM has petitioned the Agency for a decision that, because of differences in inflator design and vehicle integration, the equipment defect determined to exist by Takata is inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety in the GMT900 vehicles, and that GM should therefore be relieved of its notification and remedy obligations. This notice serves to make the public aware of GM's pending request to the agency and the period for public comment. It does not address GM's substantive claims, nor legal arguments or interpretations asserted by GM.

Parts and Accessories Necessary for Safe Operation; Stoneridge, Inc. Application for an Exemption
Document Number: 2018-06964
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-04-05
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requests public comment on an exemption application from Stoneridge, Inc. (Stoneridge) to allow motor carriers to operate commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) with the company's MirrorEyeTM Camera Monitor System (CMS) installed as an alternative to the two rear-vision mirrors required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs). Stoneridge explained that it has developed, tested and manufactured the CMS to improve CMV safety by providing driver with an enhanced field of view around the cab of the truck. The company states that its MirrorEyeTM CMS meets the performance requirements provided for conventional mirrors under the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)'s standards which are cross-referenced by the FMCSRs. Stoneridge believes the exemption would maintain a level of safety that is equivalent to, or greater than, the level of safety achieved without the exemption because CMS meets or exceeds the performance requirements for traditional mirrors.

Also, an editorial change would be made to the airspace designation in both Class D and E airspace.
Amendment of Class B Airspace Description; St. Louis, MO
Document Number: 2018-06750
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-04-05

Airworthiness Directives; Bell Helicopter Textron Canada Limited Helicopters
Document Number: 2018-06640
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-04-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2017-13- 03 for Bell Helicopter Textron Canada Limited (Bell) Model 429 helicopters. AD 2017-13-03 requires adding an identification number to life-limited rod ends that do not have a serial number (S/N). Since we issued AD 2017-13-03, an additional life-limited rod end was identified that is affected by the same unsafe condition. This proposed AD would retain the requirements of AD 2017-13-03 and revise the Applicability paragraph by adding that rod end. The actions of this proposed AD are intended to address an unsafe condition on these products.

Hours of Service of Drivers: Application for Exemption; Wilcox Truck Line, Inc.
Document Number: 2018-06861
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-04-04
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces that Wilcox Truck Line, Inc.

FMCSA announces its decision to renew the Oregon Department of Transportation's (ODOT) exemption from the commercial learner's permit (CLP) requirements in 49 CFR part 383. All State Driver's Licensing Agencies (SDLAs) are allowed to use this exemption at their discretion. The exemption will allow ODOT and participating SDLAs to extend to one year the 180-day timeline for the CLP from the date of issuance, without requiring the CLP holder to retake the general and endorsement knowledge tests. Under the exemption, an applicant wishing to have a new CLP after the previous one expires will be required to take all applicable tests before a new CLP is issued.

Notice of Submission of Proposed Information Collection to OMB
Document Number: 2018-06857
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-04-04
Agency: Department of Transportation, Office of the Secretary
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35, as amended) this notice announces the Department of Transportation's (Department) intention to reinstate and partially- modify an Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number as related to the Disclosure of Code-Sharing Arrangements and Long-Term Wet Leases. The growth in the use of code-sharing, wet-leasing, and similar marketing tools, particularly in international air transportation, led the Department on March 15, 1999, to adopt specific regulations requiring the disclosure of code-sharing arrangements and long-term wet leases by carriers (U.S. and foreign) and ticket agents via oral, written, and internet communications. In a recent final rule titled ``Enhancing Airline Passenger Protections'' (See, 81 FR 76800, November 3, 2016), the Department, among other things, amended the code-share disclosure regulation to require that carriers and ticket agents must disclose any code-share arrangements on their websites, including mobile websites and applications; clarify the format in which that information must be displayed; and specify that verbal code-share disclosures should be made the first time a flight involving a code- share arrangement is offered to consumers or the first time a consumer inquiries about such a flight whether by telephone or in person conversations. In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this notice also announces that the request for reinstatement and partial- modification of an OMB Control Number for the Information Collection Request (ICR) abstracted below is being forwarded to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and comments. A Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following information collection was published on September 12, 2017.
