Document Number: E6-17759
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-10-24
Agency: Surface Transportation Board, Department of Transportation
The Surface Transportation Board is modifying the timeframes in its rules for certain class exemptions to provide greater public notice in advance of the possible consummation of an exempt transaction. The proposed changes will ensure that the public is given notice of a proposed transaction before the exemption becomes effective; and that the Board may process such notices of exemption, and related petitions for stay, if any, in an orderly and timely fashion.
