Title 49 published on 09-May-2017 04:41
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 49 CFR Part 1244 after this date.
The Surface Transportation Board is withdrawing the proposed rules and discontinuing the EP 385 (Sub-No. 7) rulemaking proceeding which proposed to expand the Waybill Sample collection with respect to traffic movements designated as a Toxic Inhalation Hazard.
The Surface Transportation Board (Board) is revising, correcting, and updating its regulations. These modifications include replacing obsolete statutory references, updating office and address references, and correcting spelling, grammatical, terminology, explanatory, and typographical errors. The Board is also making changes to certain authority citations and to certain regulations related to reporting requirements.
The Board is withdrawing the proposed rules and discontinuing the EP 701 rulemaking proceeding which proposed to accelerate the filing deadlines for certain financial, employee, and traffic reports submitted by Class I railroads.
The Surface Transportation Board (Board or STB) proposes to revise its regulations to accelerate the filing deadlines for eight reports submitted by Class I railroads: Schedule 250 (required under the Annual Report Form R-1); Quarterly Condensed Balance Sheet Forms (CBS); Quarterly Revenue, Expenses, and Income Reports (RE&I); Quarterly and Annual Wage Forms A&B; Quarterly Reports of Fuel Cost, Consumption, and Surcharge Revenue; Quarterly and Annual Freight Commodity Statistics Report Forms (QCS); Annual Report of Cars Loaded and Terminated (Form STB-54); and Monthly Report of Number of Employees (Form C).
When a shipper files a formal complaint that a railroad's rate is too high, the Surface Transportation Board (Board) must determine whether the challenged rate is reasonable. To present its case using the Board's procedures for small cases, the complaining shipper needs to obtain from the Board confidential information that the Board collects regarding the rates that the defendant railroad charges other shippers for similar shipments. Pursuant to the notice of proposed rulemaking published in the Federal Register on October 27, 2010, the Board is formalizing its rules with respect to the Three-Benchmark methodology for adjudicating simplified rate case complaints, making the most recent four years of this confidential information available to parties and permitting the parties to use any combination of the four years of confidential information when presenting their cases.
