49 CFR 601.33 - Processing of petitions.
(a) Each petition received under § 601.32 of this part is referred to the head of the office responsible for the subject matter of that petition. Unless the Administrator otherwise specifies, no public hearing, argument or other proceeding is held directly on a petition before its disposition under this section.
(b) Grants. If the Administrator determines the petition contains adequate justification, he/she initiates rulemaking action under this Subpart C or grants the exemption, as the case may be.
(c) Denials. If the Administrator determines the petition does not justify rulemaking or granting the exemption, he/she denies the petition.
