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 1150 after this date.
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.
Pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501—3519 (PRA) and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regulations at 5 CFR 1320.11, the Surface Transportation Board has obtained OMB approval for the collection of information adopted by the Board in Information Required in Notices and Petitions Containing Interchange Commitments, STB Ex Parte No. 714 (STB served Sept. 5, 2013). See also 78 FR 54589 (Sept. 5, 2013). This collection, which is codified at 49 CFR Parts 1121, 1150, and 1180, has been assigned OMB Control No. 2140-0016. Unless renewed, OMB approval expires on November 30, 2016. The display of a currently valid OMB control number for this collection is required by law. Under the PRA and 5 CFR 1320.8, an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless the collection displays a currently valid OMB control number.
On November 1, 2012, the Board issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPR) proposing rules that would establish additional disclosure requirements for notices and petitions for exemption where the underlying lease or line sale includes an interchange commitment. Based on the comments received and further evaluation, the Board now adopts as final the proposed rules, with modifications that reduce the amount of information required to be submitted. The final rules are set forth below.
Through this Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPR), the Board is proposing a rule establishing additional disclosure requirements for notices and petitions for exemption where the underlying lease or line sale includes an interchange commitment.
