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 26 after this date.
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT or Department) is amending its disadvantaged business enterprise (DBE) program regulations to improve program implementation in three major areas or categories. First, the rule revises the uniform certification application and reporting forms, creates a uniform personal net worth form, and collects data required by the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), on the percentage of DBEs in each State. Second, the rule strengthens the certification-related program provisions, which includes adding a new provision authorizing summary suspensions under specified circumstances. Third, the rule modifies several other program provisions concerning such subjects as: Overall goal setting, good faith efforts, transit vehicle manufacturers, and counting for trucking companies. The revision also makes minor corrections to the rule.
On September 18, 2013, the Department of Transportation (DOT) issued a notice announcing a public listening session on October 9, 2013 concerning the proposed changes to the Department's Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program found in the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) published on September 6, 2012. The Department also announced that it would be reopening the public comment period from the date of publication until October 30, 2013. However, due to the lapse in government funding on October 1, 2013, the Department canceled the October 9, 2013 meeting. The Department is rescheduling the public listening session on this rulemaking to December 5, 2013 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. The comment period is extended to December 26, 2013.
On September 6, 2012, the Department of Transportation (DOT) issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) concerning various modifications to the Department's Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program. In a later notice published on October 25, 2012, the Department extended the public comment period until December 24, 2012. Various commenters to the NPRM expressed interest in the Department holding a public meeting on the proposed changes prior to issuing a final rule. The Department agrees. The Department will hold a public listening session on the changes proposed in the NPRM on October 9, 2013, from 12:00 p.m. EDT to 4:00 p.m. EDT in the Department's Washington, DC headquarters. The Department is simultaneously reopening the comment period from September 18, 2013 to October 30, 2013. Interested persons from both the public and private sectors are invited to offer their views orally or in writing on specific aspects of the NPRM noted below.
The Department is correcting a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) published in the Federal Register . In that document, the Department proposed, among other modifications, to change the Uniform Report of DBE Commitments/Awards and Payments form found in our regulations. As this is an information collection covered by the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), the Department should have included a discussion of this collection in the “Paperwork Reduction Act” section of the NPRM in order to comply with the PRA's procedural requirements. Today, the Department is correcting this omission by including discussion of the Uniform Report collection and providing the public with 60 days from today to comment both on this collection and all other aspects of the NPRM. Thus, the original end of the comment period, November 5, 2012, has been extended until December 24, 2012.
This notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) proposes three categories of changes to improve implementation of the Department of Transportation's disadvantaged business enterprise (DBE) rule. First, the NPRM proposes revisions to personal net worth, application, and reporting forms. Second, the NPRM proposes modifications to certification-related provisions of the rule. Third, the NPRM would modify several other provisions of the rule, concerning such subjects as good faith efforts, transit vehicle manufacturers and counting of trucking companies.
