SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Legal Basis for the Rulemaking

    Congress delegated certain powers to regulate interstate commerce 
to the United States Department of Transportation (DOT or Department) 
in numerous pieces of legislation, most notably in section 6 of the 
Department of Transportation Act (DOT Act) (Pub. L. 85-670, 80 Stat. 
931 (1966)). Section 55 of the DOT Act transferred to the Department 
the authority of the former Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) to 
regulate the qualifications and maximum hours of service of employees, 
the safety of operations, and the equipment of motor carriers in 
interstate commerce. See 49 U.S.C. 104. This authority, first granted 
to the ICC in the Motor Carrier Act of 1935 (Pub. L. 74-255, 49 Stat. 
543, Aug. 9, 1935), now appears in chapter 315 of title 49 of the U.S. 
Code. The regulations issued under this authority became known as the 
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, appearing generally at 49 CFR 
parts 350-399. The administrative powers to enforce chapter 315 were 
also transferred from the ICC to the DOT in 1966 and appear in chapter 
5 of title 49 of the U.S. Code. The Secretary of the U.S. Department of 
Transportation (Secretary) delegated oversight of these provisions to 
the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), a predecessor agency of the 
FMCSA. The FMCSA Administrator has been delegated

[[Page 58471]]

authority under 49 CFR 1.87 to carry out the motor carrier functions 
vested in the Secretary.
    Between 1984 and 1999, a number of statutes added to FHWA's 
authority. Various statutes authorize the enforcement of the FMCSRs, 
the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMRs), and the Commercial 
Regulations, and provide both civil and criminal penalties for 
violations of these requirements. These statutes include the Motor 
Carrier Safety Act of 1984 (Pub. L. 98-554, 98 Stat. 2832, Oct. 30, 
1984), codified at 49 U.S.C. chapter 311, subchapter III; the 
Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1986 (Pub. L. 99-570, 100 Stat. 
3207-170, Oct. 27, 1986), codified at 49 U.S.C. chapter 313; the 
Hazardous Materials Transportation Uniform Safety Act of 1990, as 
amended (Pub. L. 101-615, 104 Stat. 3244, Nov. 16, 1990), codified at 
49 U.S.C. chapter 51; and the ICC Termination Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-
88, 109 Stat. 803, Dec. 29, 1995), codified at 49 U.S.C. chapters 131-
149.
    The Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act of 1999 (MCSIA) (Pub. L. 
106-159, 113 Stat. 1748, Dec. 9, 1999) established FMCSA as a new 
operating administration within the DOT, effective January 1, 2000. The 
motor carrier safety responsibilities previously assigned to both the 
ICC and the FHWA are now assigned to FMCSA. Congress expanded, 
modified, and amended FMCSA's authority in the Uniting and 
Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to 
Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism (USA PATRIOT) Act of 2001 (Pub. L. 
107-56, 115 Stat. 272, Oct. 26, 2001), the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, 
Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) 
(Pub. L. 109-59, 119 Stat. 1144, Aug. 10, 2005), the SAFETEA-LU 
Technical Corrections Act of 2008 (Pub. L. 110-244, 122 Stat. 1572, 
June 6, 2008), and the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century 
Act (MAP-21) (Pub. L. 112-141, 126 Stat. 405, July 6, 2012).
    Most of the provisions of the FMCSRs amended by this rule are based 
on the statutes detailed above. The legal authority for each of those 
provisions was explained when the requirement was originally adopted 
and is summarized at the beginning of each part in title 49 of the CFR. 
Title 49 CFR subtitle B, chapter III, contains all of the FMCSRs.
    The Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553) specifically 
provides exceptions to its notice and public comment rulemaking 
procedures where the Agency finds there is good cause (and incorporates 
the finding and a brief statement of reasons therefore in the rules 
issued) to dispense with them. Generally, good cause exists where the 
Agency determines that notice and public comment procedures are 
impractical, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest (5 U.S.C. 
553(b)). The amendments made in this final rule merely correct 
inadvertent errors and omissions, remove obsolete references, and make 
minor editorial changes to improve clarity and consistency. The 
technical amendments do not impose any new requirements, nor do they 
make any substantive changes to the CFR. For these reasons, the FMCSA 
finds good cause that notice and public comment on this final rule are 
unnecessary. For these same reasons, this rule will be effective on the 
date of publication in the Federal Register.

Background

    This document makes editorial changes to correct inaccurate 
references and citations, improve clarity, and fix errors. The reasons 
for each of these minor editorial changes are set out below, in a 
section-by-section description of the changes. These amendments do not 
impose any new requirements, nor do they make substantive changes to 
the CFR.

Section-by-Section Analysis

    This section-by-section analysis describes the technical amendment 
provisions in numerical order.

Part 325

    Section 325.1. The second sentence of paragraph (c)(6) is revised 
by removing the comma between the words ``asphalt'' and ``spreaders,'' 
to correct a typographical error.
    Section 325.13. In paragraph (d)(1), ``Federal Highway 
Administration'' is revised to read ``Federal Motor Carrier Safety 
Administration,'' which complies with the intent of the technical 
changes rule published in the Federal Register (FR) on October 1, 2001 
(66 FR 49867). The last sentence of paragraph (d)(1) is revised by 
capitalizing the word ``carrier'' in the phrase ``Federal Motor carrier 
Safety Administration'' and removing the space between the word 
``Administration'' and the comma. These changes are made to correct 
typographical errors.

Part 350

    Section 350.205. In paragraph (b), the phrase ``Division 
Administrator/'' is inserted in front of ``State Director.'' The head 
of each FMCSA State office is the Division Administrator. The Agency, 
however, has one remaining State Director, in the Puerto Rico Division.
    Section 350.341. In paragraph (h)(2), the word ``affect'' is 
changed ``effect'' to correct an erroneous word choice.

Part 355

    Appendix A to part 355. Under the section for ``State 
Determinations,'' paragraph 2.b is revised by capitalizing the first 
word ``do,'' to be consistent with paragraphs 2.a and 2.c.

Part 365

    Appendix A to Subpart E of Part 365. In Appendix A to subpart E of 
part 365, FMCSA corrects several cross references. These errors reflect 
proofreading mistakes that were part of the original publication of the 
appendix on March 19, 2002 (67 FR 12715). In Section I titled, 
``General,'' paragraph (c)(6), the reference to ``Sec.  385.103(d)'' is 
replaced by a reference to ``Sec.  385.103(c),'' which is the paragraph 
that discusses requirements for a decal. In Section III titled, 
``Overall Determinations of the Carrier's Basic Safety Management 
Controls,'' paragraph (b), the reference to sections ``II (a)(1) 
through (5)'' is replaced by a reference to sections ``III (a)(1) 
through (5)'' and the reference to ``part III'' is replaced by a 
reference to ``part IV.'' In Section IV titled, ``Evaluation of 
Regulatory Compliance,'' paragraph (k)(2), the reference to section 
``III (k)(1)(i)'' is replaced by a reference to section ``IV 
(k)(1)(i).'' Also in Section IV, paragraph (k)(3), the reference to 
``paragraph III (k)(1)(vi)'' is replaced by a reference to ``paragraph 
IV (k)(1)(vi).'' In Section IV, the introductory text of paragraph (l), 
the reference to ``part II (a)(1)'' is replaced by a reference to 
``part III (a)(1),'' and the reference to ``part III'' is replaced by a 
reference to ``part IV.''
    In Section II, paragraph (b)(2), the word ``Section'' is revised by 
making the capital ``S'' a lower case ``s.'' This correction is made to 
conform to Government Printing Office style.\1\

4. The ``Style Manual'' is available at: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/GPO-STYLEMANUAL-2008/content-detail.html.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Part 369

    Sections 369.2 and 369.3. The phrase ``Producers Price Index'' in 
notes to these sections is changed to read ``Producer Price Index'' to 
correct typographical errors.

Part 370

    Section 370.9. In paragraph (b), the reference to ``Sec.  
375.1(b)(1)'' is changed to ``Sec.  375.103.'' The definition for the 
term ``household goods motor carrier'' is located in Sec.  375.103.

[[Page 58472]]

Part 372

    Section 372.109. Paragraph (a) is amended by replacing the phrase 
``federation of cooperation association'' with the phrase ``federation 
of cooperative associations'' in the first sentence to correct a 
typographical error.
    Section 372.117. Paragraph (a) is amended by replacing the 
reference to ``section (c) herein,'' with a reference to ``paragraph 
(c) of this section,'' to conform to Office of the Federal Register 
style.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The Office of the Federal Register publishes the ``Document 
Drafting Handbook,'' which provides Federal Agencies with guidance 
and examples for complying with the OFR's format and editorial 
requirements for Federal Register documents. It is available at: 
http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/write/handbook/ddh.pdf. See 
page 2-45.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Section 372.211. Paragraph (e) is amended by inserting the word 
``or'' between the phrase ``by the municipality of Pittsburgh'' and the 
phrase ``by any other municipality[hellip]'' to correct a typographical 
error.
    Sections 372.227, 372.229, and 372.231. In these three sections, 
the word ``paragraph'' is added before the paragraph references in a 
number of places. The addition of the word ``paragraph(s)'' in these 
instances provides added clarity and conforms to Office of the Federal 
Register style.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ ``Document Drafting Handbook,'' page 2-45.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Sections 372.213 and 372.233. In these two sections, FMCSA adds a 
reference to the specific municipality affected by the sections. This 
is to clarify which municipalities are included within the scope of the 
section and to make the language of these sections consistent with 
other sections in part 372. Section 372.213(e) is amended by adding the 
phrase ``of Pueblo or by any other municipality''; Sec.  372.233(e) is 
amended by adding the words ``of Chicago or any other municipality.''

Part 375

    Section 375.105. In paragraph (b), the word ``Section'' that 
precedes each section number is removed and instead two section symbols 
(Sec. Sec.  ) are added at the beginning of the list, before the 
reference to Sec.  375.205. This conforms to Government Printing Office 
style \4\ and eliminates needless repetition.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ ``Style Manual,'' 10.6.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Part 376

    Section 376.11. In the last sentence of paragraph (d)(1), the 
phrase ``the balance f documentation'' is corrected to read ``the 
balance of documentation.''

Part 380

    Sections 380.502 and 380.513. In both Sec.  380.502(b) and Sec.  
380.513(e), the words ``whistle blower'' are replaced by the word 
``whistleblower,'' to correct a spelling error.
    Appendix to Part 380. Section 3 titled, ``Safe Operating 
Practices,'' ``Unit 3.5--Security issues,'' is amended by removing the 
words ``Research and Special Programs Administration'' and adding, in 
their place, the words ``Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety 
Administration.'' In November 2004, an act of Congress abolished the 
Research and Special Programs Administration (RSPA) and certain of its 
duties were transferred to the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety 
Administration (PHMSA). This change is required to reflect the current 
name of the agency with the statutory authority to regulate the 
transportation of hazardous materials.

Part 381

    Sections 381.310 and 381.410. In Sec.  381.310(c)(5) and Sec.  
381.410(c)(8), the words ``achieve a level a safety'' are replaced by 
the words ``achieve a level of safety,'' to correct typographical 
errors.

Part 382

    Section 382.401. To conform to the structure of paragraph (b), 
paragraph (b)(2) is changed to a full sentence by appending to the end 
of the paragraph the phrase ``shall be maintained for a minimum of 2 
years.'' In addition, two cross references, which were incorrect in the 
original publication of the rule (66 FR 43103, August 17, 2001), are 
corrected here. The reference to ``Sec.  40.213(a)'' in paragraph 
(c)(5)(iv) is corrected to read ``Sec.  40.213(g),'' which discusses 
documentation of training for breath alcohol technicians. Finally, the 
reference to ``Sec.  390.31'' in paragraph (d) is corrected to read 
``Sec.  390.29,'' which discusses locations of records.
    Section 382.403. In paragraph (e), the term ``Consortia/Third party 
administrator'' is changed to ``Consortium/Third party administrator,'' 
as it is defined in Sec.  382.107.
    Section 382.601. In paragraph (b)(11), the phrase ``. . . program 
and or referral to management'' is replaced by the phrase ``. . . 
program and/or referral to management,'' to correct a typographical 
error.

Part 383

    Section 383.3. In paragraph (f), the words ``(except in the 
instances specified in Sec.  383.21)'' are removed because the 
exceptions previously referenced under Sec.  383.21 were removed in a 
September 2, 1999, rulemaking (64 FR 48110).
    Section 383.5. Under the definition for ``Conviction,'' the closed 
quotation mark following the word ``probated'' is removed to correct a 
typographical error.
    Section 383.51. In Table 2 to Sec.  383.51, footnote 1 is changed 
to add a reference to the commercial learner's permit (CLP), so that 
the footnote agrees with the regulatory text in Sec.  383.51(c)(7).
    Section 383.53. In paragraph (b)(2), the reference to ``Sec.  
383.37(c)'' is changed to read ``Sec.  383.37(d).'' Also, in paragraph 
(c), the reference to ``Sec.  383.37(d)'' is changed to read ``Sec.  
383.37(e).'' When 49 CFR 383.37 was revised on May 9, 2011 (76 FR 
26979), old paragraphs (c) and (d) became paragraphs (d) and (e), 
respectively, but the corresponding changes in Sec.  383.53 were not 
made.
    Sections 383.71, 383.73, and 383.153. In these three sections, 
FMCSA corrects the date ``July 8, 2014'' to read ``July 8, 2015.'' This 
compliance date, which appears in Sec.  384.301(f), was changed on 
March 25, 2013 (78 FR 17882). FMCSA, however, failed to change 
references to the compliance date in Sec. Sec.  383.71(a)(1) and (2), 
383.73(a)(1) and (2), and 383.153(g) and (h).
    On October 1, 2012, Sec.  383.71(b)(1)(i) was removed because it 
was obsolete, and paragraph (b)(1)(ii) of that section was redesignated 
as paragraph (b)(1) (77 FR 59825). The Agency, however, failed to 
change numerous affected cross references throughout Sec. Sec.  383.71 
and 383.73. It is correcting that oversight in this rulemaking.

Part 384

    Section 384.206. As previously described, Sec.  383.71(b)(1)(ii) 
was redesignated as Sec.  383.71(b)(1) on October 1, 2012 (77 FR 
59825). Therefore, the references to ``Sec. Sec.  383.71(b)(1)(ii)(A)'' 
and ``383.71(b)(1)(ii),'' in Sec.  384.206(a)(1)(ii) and (a)(2)(iii), 
respectively, are corrected. In paragraph (a)(2)(iii), the reference to 
``Sec.  383.73(j)(4)'' is corrected to read ``Sec.  383.73(o)(4).'' 
This reference changed when Sec.  383.73 was revised on May 9, 2011 (76 
FR 26883), but the Agency inadvertently did not change this cross 
reference.
    Section 384.216. Paragraph (b) is amended by correcting the cross 
reference to ``Sec.  383.51(a)(5)'' to read ``Sec.  383.51(a)(6).'' 
When Sec.  383.51(a) was revised on May 9, 2011 (76 FR 26879), this 
change was not made.
    Sections 384.222 and 384.223. When Sec.  383.37 was revised on May 
9, 2011 (76 FR 26879), the Agency did not make the necessary changes to 
the cross

[[Page 58473]]

references in Sec. Sec.  384.222 and 384.223. The reference to ``Sec.  
383.37(c)'' in Sec.  384.222 is removed and replaced by a reference to 
``Sec.  383.37(d),'' which discusses out-of-service orders. In Sec.  
384.223, the reference to ``Sec.  383.37(d)'' is changed to reference 
``Sec.  383.37(e),'' which discusses railroad-highway grade crossings.
    Section 384.225. Paragraph (a)(2)(i) is changed by replacing the 
reference to ``Sec.  383.71(b)(1)(ii)'' with a reference to ``Sec.  
383.71(b)(1).'' Section 383.71(b)(1)(ii) was redesignated as Sec.  
383.71(b)(1) on October 1, 2012 (77 FR 59825).
    Section 384.229. In paragraph (a), the last sentence is removed 
because the cross- referenced exception in Sec.  383.75(a)(7) was 
eliminated in a March 25, 2013 final rule (78 FR 17881).
    Section 384.305. In paragraph (a), the phrase ``Division 
Administrator/'' is inserted in front of the words ``State Director.'' 
As previously noted, generally, the head of each FMCSA State office is 
the Division Administrator. However, the Agency has one remaining State 
Director, in the Puerto Rico Division.
    Section 384.309. Paragraph (a)(2) incorrectly references Sec.  
384.307(c). The correct reference is to Sec.  384.307(d), which 
addresses final FMCSA determinations. When Sec.  384.307 was revised on 
July 31, 2002 (67 FR 49763), this change was not made.
    Section 384.403. Paragraph (a) references Sec.  384.401(a)(1) or 
(b)(1). However, since July 5, 2007 (72 FR 36788), paragraphs (a) and 
(b) in Sec.  384.401 no longer have subparagraphs. The references in 
Sec.  384.403(a) are corrected to read ``Sec.  384.401(a) or (b).''

Part 385

    Sections 385.3, 385.407, and 385.421. As previously mentioned, an 
Act of Congress abolished RSPA and certain of its duties were 
transferred to PHMSA. In several sections, FMCSA changes a reference to 
RSPA to a reference to PHMSA to reflect the current name of the agency 
with the statutory authority to regulate the transportation of 
hazardous materials. Section 385.3 is changed by removing ``RSPA means 
the Research and Special Programs Administration'' and adding, in 
alphabetical order, ``PHMSA means the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials 
Safety Administration.'' Sections 385.407(c) and 385.421(a)(9) are both 
changed to remove terms related to the obsolete Research and Special 
Programs Administration and add, in their place, the term ``Pipeline 
and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration'' or the acronym 
``PHMSA.''
    Section 385.4. In this section, FMCSA removes the name ``Mr. Thomas 
Kelly'' and adds the title ``Chief, Compliance Division'' in its place. 
This change makes clear that any questions should be addressed to the 
current Chief of the Compliance Division. Paragraph (b) is changed to 
correct a typographical error in the address.

Part 386

    Sections 386.2, 386.7, and 386.8. As part of a reorganization in 
DOT, the Docket Management Facility was renamed Docket Operations. 
FMCSA corrects Sec. Sec.  386.2, 386.7, and 386.8 to be consistent with 
the official title used by the facility. In the definition of 
``Dockets'' in Sec.  386.2, the run-in, italic heading is changed to 
read ``Docket Operations.'' The address in Sec.  386.7 is changed from 
``Department of Transportation Docket Management Facility'' to 
``Department of Transportation Docket Operations.'' In Sec.  
386.8(c)(2), the name of the facility is changed from ``Dockets'' to 
``Docket Operations.''
    Section 386.11. The Agency updates the title of the office in 
paragraph (a) to read ``Director, Office of Carrier, Driver, and 
Vehicle Safety Standards (MC-PS)'' to reflect current usage and makes 
editorial changes to paragraph (b) for consistency.
    Section 386.13. Paragraph (a)(5) is changed to clarify that the 
information in the paragraph refers to a petition and not a reply. In 
addition, the cross reference is changed from ``Sec.  386.31'' to 
``Sec.  386.6(c)'' because on May 18, 2005, former Sec.  386.31 was 
superseded by Sec.  386.6 (70 FR 28480).
    Section 386.22. In paragraphs (d) and (e), the comma following 
``reject it'' is removed to correct a typographical error and to be 
consistent with Sec.  386.22(c).
    Section 386.48. The Agency updates the title of the office to read 
``Director, Office of Carrier, Driver, and Vehicle Safety Standards 
(MC-PS)'' to reflect current usage.
    Section 386.51. In paragraph (a), the word ``anytime'' is changed 
to read ``any time'' to correct a typographical error and to be 
consistent with Sec.  386.51(b).
    Section 386.72. In paragraph (b)(3), the Agency adds a reference to 
``employee'' to the definition of ``imminent hazard'' to reflect the 
wording of the statute at 49 U.S.C. 521(b)(5)(B).
    Section 386.73. Paragraph (g)(8)(iii) is amended by replacing the 
reference to ``(g)(5)'' with ``(g)(7),'' the correct reference to the 
30-day period for review of a petition. This cross reference was 
incorrect when the section was added April 26, 2012 (77 FR 24870).
    Section 386.83. Section 386.83 contains a reference to 49 CFR part 
386 Appendix A (h) that was not updated after that paragraph was re-
numbered. This rule corrects that so that it properly references 49 CFR 
part 386 Appendix A (i).

Part 387

    Sections 387.5 and 387.29. The word ``means'' is inserted between 
the term being defined and the definition for several terms defined in 
these sections. This change provides added clarity and readability, and 
conforms to other sections throughout the CFR.
    Sections 387.307, 387.315, and 387.409. Each instance of the terms 
``state'' and ``federal'' are capitalized in these sections, to be 
consistent with the Government Printing Office style.\5\ In Sec.  
387.307, paragraph (d)(1), the term ``subsection (a)'' after the phrase 
``. . . full security limits under. . .'' is replaced by the phrase 
``paragraph (a) of this section,'' to conform to Office of the Federal 
Register style.\6\

Part 389

    Section 389.25. Section 389.25 is revised to correct typographical 
and grammatical errors. The phrase ``or example'' is replaced by the 
phrase ``For example''. Also, the word ``to'' is inserted between the 
words ``. . . minutes are kept, or'' and ``participate in any other 
proceeding. . . .''

Part 390

    Section 390.3. In paragraph (f)(1), the list of exceptions is 
amended to include Sec.  391.15(e), Disqualification for violation of 
prohibition of texting while driving a commercial motor vehicle, and 
Sec.  391.15(f), Disqualification for violation of a restriction on 
using a hand-held mobile telephone while driving a commercial motor 
vehicle. The first citation (Sec.  391.15(e)) was originally included 
in the September 25, 2010, texting final rule (75 FR 59118). When the 
paragraph was revised by the cell phone rule to add that exception in 
Sec.  391.15(f) on December 2, 2011 (76 FR 75470), Sec.  391.15(e)--the 
texting rule disqualification--was inadvertently omitted from the list 
of exceptions. Also, paragraph (f)(6) is amended to include an 
additional exception (Sec.  391.15(e)) for the texting provisions. This 
citation was included in the 2010 texting final rule, but inadvertently 
removed by the 2011 cell phone rule.
    Section 390.5. In the definition of ``Bus,'' the phrase ``and or 
used'' is

[[Page 58474]]

changed to ``and/or used'' to correct a typographical error.
    Section 390.19. The section heading is changed to correspond to the 
entities listed in paragraph Sec.  390.19(a)(2) required to submit Form 
MCS-150B to the Agency. The new heading reads ``Sec.  390.19 Motor 
carrier, hazardous material safety permit applicant/holder, and 
intermodal equipment provider identification reports.''
    Section 390.21. In paragraph (e)(2)(iv), the word ``part'' is 
inserted between the words ``CFR'' and ``376,'' to conform to Office of 
the Federal Register style.\7\ Also, in paragraph (g)(4)(iii), the 
acronyms ``SCAC'' and ``VIN'' are used, but they not defined until 
Sec.  390.21(g)(4)(v)(A). For clarity, the acronyms SCAC and VIN are 
spelled out in Sec.  390.21(g)(4)(iii) as follows: ``Standard Carrier 
Alpha Code (SCAC)'' and ``Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)'' the 
first time they are used, but the acronyms alone are used in paragraph 
(g)(4)(v)(A).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Section 390.40. In paragraph (f), the reference to ``Sec.  396.12'' 
is replaced with a reference to ``Sec.  396.3(b)(3),'' which is the 
correct citation for records of inspection, repair and maintenance. 
Also, paragraph (j) included a reference to Sec.  386.72(b)(1), which 
is incorrect because the definition of ``imminent hazard'' is no longer 
contained in that paragraph. Thus, in paragraph (j) of Sec.  390.40, 
the reference to ``Sec.  396.72(b)(1)'' is removed and replaced with a 
reference to ``Sec.  396.72(b)(3).
    Section 390.107. In the introductory text of Sec.  390.107, the 
comma is removed between the word ``* * * in'' and the phrase 
``accordance with the minimum specifications * * *'' to correct a 
typographical error.

Part 391

    Section 391.2. In paragraphs (a), (b), and (c) of Sec.  391.2, the 
references to ``Sec.  391.15(e) and (g)'' are removed and replaced with 
references to ``Sec.  391.15(e) and (f),'' to correct a typographical 
error. Section 391.2 was revised and Sec.  391.15(f) was added on 
December 2, 2011 (76 FR 75487), with this incorrect cross reference. 
There has never been a Sec.  391.15(g).
    Section 391.15. In paragraph (c)(1)(ii), the reference to ``Sec.  
395.2(a)'' is removed and replaced with a reference to ``Sec.  395.2,'' 
to correct a typographical error. Because it is a definitions section, 
Sec.  395.2 is arranged alphabetically, rather than by paragraphs. 
Also, in paragraph (c)(1)(ii), the semicolon is removed following the 
phrase ``* * * or foreign commerce'' and replaced with a period, to 
correct a typographical error and to be consistent with other instances 
in this section.
    Section 391.47. In paragraphs (c), (d)(1) and (d)(2), and (f), the 
phrase ``Director of Bus and Truck Operations (MC-PSDPSD)'' is changed 
to correctly refer to the position title and mail routing symbol, 
respectively, as ``Director, Office of Carrier, Driver and Vehicle 
Safety Standards (MC-PS).''
    Section 391.49. In paragraphs (g), (h), (j)(1), (j)(2), and (k), 
the phrase ``Division Administrator/'' is added before the words 
``State Director'' in each instance the term is used. As noted 
previously, except for the Puerto Rico Division, the head of each FMCSA 
State office is the Division Administrator.
    Section 391.65. In paragraphs (a) introductory text, (a)(1), 
(a)(2), (a)(2)(i), (a)(2)(ii), (a)(2)(iii), and the certification 
statement in (a)(2)(vii), the words ``regularly employed'' or 
variations of that phrase are replaced by the words ``single-employer 
driver'' or variations of that phrase. The reference in paragraph 
(a)(2)(iii) to the definition of a regularly employed driver in Sec.  
390.5 is no longer correct. The definition of ``regularly employed 
driver'' has been replaced by the definition of ``single-employer 
driver'' (see 63 FR 33276, June 18, 1998).

Part 393

    Section 393.3. The negative implications in Sec.  393.3--that 
additional equipment or accessories that reduce operation safety are 
prohibited--is re-phrased as an affirmative prohibition.
    Section 393.11. In Footnote 12, the reference to ``Sec.  392-
22(a)'' is replaced by a reference to ``Sec.  392.22(a).'' In Footnote 
15(l), the reference to ``Section 393.11'' is replaced by a reference 
to ``Sec.  393.11.'' These changes correct a typographical error and 
conform the footnotes to Office of the Federal Register style.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ ``Document Drafting Handbook,'' page 2-44, et seq.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Section 393.49. In paragraph (a), the word ``busses'' is replaced 
with the word ``buses,'' to correct a typographical error.
    Subpart E of Part 393. FMCSA removes the outdated authority 
citation for subpart E--Fuel Systems, which follows the subpart 
heading. The authority citation for part 393 adequately covers subpart 
E.
    Section 393.67. In paragraphs (a)(2) and (a)(3), the reference to 
``paragraph (c)(7)(iii)'' is replaced with a reference to ``paragraph 
(c)(7)(ii),'' which is the correct citation for diesel fuel tanks. In 
paragraph (c)(9), the word ``systems test'' is replaced with the words 
``system test'' to correct a typographical error.
    Section 393.71. In paragraph (h)(7), the words ``Tow-bars of such 
design on in our condition as to permit . . .'' are replaced with the 
words ``Tow-bars of such design or in such condition as to permit . . 
.'' to correct typographical errors. FMCSA removes the authority 
citation at the end of Sec.  393.71 because it is outdated and because 
the authority citation for part 393 accurately describes the authority 
for the section.
    Section 393.77. Paragraph ``(b)(15)(i) Exception'' is redesignated 
as ``(c) Exception'' to maintain alphabetical continuity with paragraph 
``(b) Heater,'' the preceding paragraph.
    Section 393.95. In paragraph (j), the words ``See Sec.  393.7(c)'' 
are replaced with the words ``See Sec.  393.7'' to correct the 
reference to matters or material incorporated by reference.
    Section 393.102. In paragraph (b), the reference to ``Sec.'' in 
``Sec. 393.106(b)'' is replaced with the section symbol (Sec.  ), to 
read ``Sec.  393.106(b).'' In paragraph (c), the quotation mark ('') 
following the words ``if the cargo is'' is replaced with a colon (:) to 
correct a typographical error.
    Section 393.118. In paragraph (d)(3)(iv)(B)(2)(i), the word 
``about'' between the words ``6 feet'' and ``the deck'' is replaced 
with the word ``above'' to correct a typographical error. Also, 
paragraph (d)(5) is redesignated as paragraph (e), since the content in 
paragraph (d)(5) is not included within the scope of ``securement of 
bundles transported using more than one tier.''
    Section 393.120. In the italic, run-in headings of paragraphs (b), 
(c), and (d), the words ``in an'' are added after the words ``. . . in 
a sided vehicle or'' and before the words ``intermodal container.'' In 
paragraph (b)(1)(iv), the words ``must be used'' are removed. In the 
introductory text of paragraph (b)(2), the word ``the'' is removed 
after the words ``longitudinal row,'' and, in its place, is added the 
word ``then.'' In paragraph (d)(1)(v), the comma is removed between the 
words ``Either blocking'' and ``or friction mats.'' In the last 
sentence of paragraph (d)(3)(iv), the extraneous phrase ``he forward 
direction.'' is deleted to correct a typographical error.
    Section 393.124. The paragraph that follows Sec.  393.124(d)(5)(vi) 
is redesignated from paragraph ``(a)'' to paragraph ``(e).'' Currently, 
the paragraph is mislabeled as paragraph (a). In newly redesignated 
paragraph (e)(2)(ii)(B), the period at the end of the paragraph is 
replaced with a semicolon. In paragraph (f)(2)(i), the period at the

[[Page 58475]]

end of the paragraph is removed and replaced with a semicolon.
    Section 393.136. In paragraph (b)(2), the words ``hard wood'' are 
replaced with the word ``hardwood'' to correct a typographical error.
    Section 393.203. In paragraph (a), the word ``exist'' is replaced 
with the word ``exit'' to correct a typographical error.

Part 395

    Section 395.1. On August 25, 2005, the Agency modified 
substantially the sleeper berth regulations in Sec.  395.1(g) (70 FR 
50071). Among other things, the 2005 sleeper berth provisions referred 
to the 11- and 14-hour limits, which do not apply in Alaska. 
Inadvertently, FMCSA did not include alternative Alaska limits in that 
rulemaking. As a result, the current sleeper berth rules say that 
drivers can drive only 11 hours in a 14-hour window, while Alaska 
drivers can drive 15 hours in a non-consecutive 20-hour window. This 
rulemaking corrects that oversight by adding the alternative limits for 
Alaska drivers to Sec.  395.1(g).
    The title of paragraph (m) in Sec.  395.1, ``Construction materials 
and equipment,'' is italicized to stylistically conform to the titles 
of the other paragraphs in that section.
    Section 395.3. Paragraph (d), dealing with the once-a-week limit on 
restarting the 60- and 70-hour rules, is amended to include references 
to a weekly limit on restarting the special 70- and 80-hour rules 
effective in Alaska.
    Section 395.8. In the note to paragraph (c), the word ``nerest'' is 
replaced by the word ``nearest,'' and in paragraph (f)(11) ``ff duty'' 
is replaced by ``off duty'' to correct typographical errors.

Part 396

    Section 396.9. In paragraph (c)(1), the phrase ``out-of-Service 
Vehicle sticker'' is replaced by the phrase ``Out-of-Service Vehicle 
sticker,'' to correct a typographical error.
    Section 396.11. Section 396.11 is amended to correct grammatical 
errors. In paragraph (a)(1)(xi), the semicolon at the end of the 
paragraph is replaced by a period. In paragraph (b)(1)(ix), a period is 
added at the end of the paragraph. In paragraph (b)(2)(ix), the 
semicolon at the end of the paragraph is replaced by a period. In 
paragraph (b)(2)(iv)(B), a period is added at the end of the paragraph.
    Section 396.15. In paragraphs (b) and (c), the word ``towbar'' is 
replaced by the word ``tow-bar'' to correct a typographical error.

Part 397

    Section 397.65. Under the definition of ``Indian tribe,'' the 
symbol (Sec.  ) that precedes the section number of the statute is 
replaced by the term ``section,'' to conform to Government Printing 
Office style.\9\ The definition of ``Radioactive material'' is updated 
to reflect changes to the definition of the ``radioactive material'' as 
defined in 49 CFR 173.403. This definition was revised on January 26, 
2004 (69 FR 3670).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ ``Style Manual,'' 9.39.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Sections 397.67, 397.69, and 397.71. These three paragraphs are 
amended to correct certain grammatical errors. In the introductory text 
of Sec.  397.67(b), the phrase ``a NRHM routing designations,'' is 
replaced by the phrase ``NRHM routing designations.'' In Sec.  397.67 
(d), the word ``or'' is added after the words ``Division 1.1, 1.2''. 
The Agency corrects Sec.  397.69(b) and Sec.  397.71(b)(6), (b)(9)(i), 
and (b)(9)(iv) by replacing the words ``a NRHM'' with the words ``an 
NRHM'' wherever they appear. In addition, in Sec.  397.71(b)(2)(ii), 
the word ``their'' following ``. . . the public will be afforded the 
opportunity to present'' is replaced by the word ``its.''
    Section 397.73. In paragraph (a), the reference to ``Section 2B-
43'' is replaced by a reference to ``Section 2B-62,'' to reflect 
revisions in the updated ``Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices.'' 
\10\ In paragraph (b), the phrase ``their jurisdictions'' following ``. 
. . shall provide information identifying all NRHM routing designations 
which exist within'' is replaced by the phrase ``its jurisdiction'' to 
correct a grammatical error.

published by the Federal Highway Administration, is available from: 
http://mutcd.fhwa.dot.gov/pdfs/2009r1r2/pdf_index.htm.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Section 397.101. In paragraph (d), the words ``shall prepared'' are 
replaced by the words ``shall prepare'' to correct a typographical 
error. The introductory text to paragraph (g) is clarified to correctly 
refer the reader to 49 CFR 173.403 instead of 49 CFR 173.401(l) for the 
definition of a ``Highway route controlled quantity'' of a radioactive 
material. This corrects a misprint.
    Section 397.201. In paragraph (c), under the definition of 
``Administrator,'' the phrase ``Federal Highway Administrator'' is 
replaced by ``Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administrator'' to comply 
with the intent of the technical changes rule published in the Federal 
Register on October 1, 2001 (66 FR 49867).
    Section 397.213. In paragraph (b)(4), the phrase ``subdivision 
thereof, our Indian tribe'' is replaced by the phrase ``subdivision 
thereof or Indian tribe'' to correct a typographical error.

Appendix G to Subchapter B of Chapter III

    FMCSA changes Appendix G to Subchapter B of Chapter III in multiple 
places to conform to Office of the Federal Register style.\11\ Under 
``5. Lighting Devices,'' the term ``Section'' in the reference to 
``Section 393'' is replaced with ``part.'' In subparagraph a(9), under 
``10. Tires,'' the reference to ``393.75(e)'' is replaced with a 
reference to ``Sec.  393.75(e).'' Under ``12. Windshield Glazing,'' the 
reference to ``393.60'' is replaced with ``Sec.  393.60.'' In addition, 
under the heading, ``Differences Between the Out-of-Service Criteria & 
FMCSA's Annual Inspection,'' the Agency makes all the following 
changes. Under the heading ``3. Exhaust System,'' in both instances in 
which the term ``Section'' is used to reference ``Section 393.83,'' 
that term is replaced with the section symbol (Sec.  ). Under ``5. 
Lighting Devices,'' the term ``Section'' in the reference to ``Section 
393'' is replaced with ``part.'' Under ``9. Frame,'' the reference to 
``393.201'' is replaced with ``Sec.  393.201.'' The reference to 
``393.75'' under ``10. Tires,'' is replaced with ``Sec.  393.75.'' 
Under ``11. Wheel and Rims,'' the reference to ``393.205'' is replaced 
with ``Sec.  393.205.'' Finally, under ``12. Windshield Glazing,'' the 
reference to ``393.60'' is replaced with ``Sec.  393.60.''

Rulemaking Analyses

Executive Order 12866 (Regulatory Planning and Review) and DOT 
Regulatory Policies and Procedures

    FMCSA has determined that this action is not a significant 
regulatory action within the meaning of Executive Order 12866, as 
supplemented by Executive Order 13563 (76 FR 3821, January 18, 2011), 
or within the meaning of the DOT regulatory policies and procedures (44 
FR 1103, February 26, 1979). Thus, the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) did not review this document. We expect the final rule will have 
minimal, if any, costs; therefore, a full regulatory evaluation is 
unnecessary.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    In compliance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (5 U.S.C. 
601-612), FMCSA has evaluated the effects of this rule on small 
entities. Because the rule only makes minor editorial corrections and 
places no new

[[Page 58476]]

requirements on the regulated industry, I certify that this action will 
not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities.

Assistance for Small Entities

    In accordance with section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory 
Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, FMCSA wants to assist small entities 
in understanding this rule so that they can better evaluate its effects 
on themselves and participate in the rulemaking initiative. If the rule 
would affect your small business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or 
options for compliance; please consult the FMCSA point of contact, 
Elaine Walls, listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section of 
this rule.
    Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal 
employees who enforce or otherwise determine compliance with Federal 
regulations to the Small Business Administration's Small Business and 
Agriculture Regulatory Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small 
Business Regulatory Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these 
actions annually and rates each agency's responsiveness to small 
business. If you wish to comment on actions by employees of FMCSA, call 
1-888-REG-FAIR (1-888-734-3247). DOT has a policy regarding the rights 
of small entities to regulatory enforcement fairness and an explicit 
policy against retaliation for exercising these rights.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The final rule will not impose an unfunded Federal mandate, as 
defined by the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1532, et 
seq.), that will result in the expenditure by State, local and tribal 
governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $143.1 
million (which is the value equivalent of $100,000,000 in 1995, 
adjusted for inflation to 2010 levels) or more in any 1 year.

E.O. 13132 (Federalism)

    A rule has implications for Federalism under section 1(a) of 
Executive Order 13132 if it has ``substantial direct effects on the 
States, on the relationship between national government and the States, 
or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among various 
levels of government.'' FMCSA has determined that this rule will not 
have substantial direct effects on States, nor will it limit the 
policymaking discretion of States. Nothing in this document preempts or 
modifies any provision of State law or regulation, imposes substantial 
direct unreimbursed compliance costs on any State, or diminishes the 
power of any State to enforce its own laws. Accordingly, this 
rulemaking does not have Federalism implications warranting the 
application of E.O. 13132.

E.O. 12372 (Intergovernmental Review)

    The regulations implementing E.O. 12372 regarding intergovernmental 
consultation on Federal programs and activities do not apply to this 
rule.

Indian Tribal Governments

    This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 
13175 titled, ``Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal 
Governments,'' because it would not have a substantial direct effect on 
one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal 
Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and 
responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501 et 
seq.), Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they 
conduct, sponsor, or require through regulations. FMCSA determined that 
no new information collection requirements are associated with this 
final rule.

National Environmental Policy Act and Clean Air Act

    FMCSA analyzed this final rule for the purpose of ascertaining the 
applicability of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 
U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) and determined under our Environmental Procedures 
Order 5610.1, issued March 1, 2004 (69 FR 9680), that this action would 
not have any effect on the quality of the environment. In addition, 
this final rule is categorically excluded from further analysis and 
documentation under the Categorical Exclusion (CE) in paragraph 6(b) of 
Appendix 2 of FMCSA Order 5610.1. This CE addresses minor editorial 
corrections such as those addressed in this rulemaking; therefore 
preparation of an environmental assessment or environmental impact 
statement is not necessary.
    The FMCSA also analyzed this rule under the Clean Air Act, as 
amended (CAA), section 176(c) (42 U.S.C. 42 U.S.C. 7506(c)), and 
implementing regulations promulgated by the Environmental Protection 
Agency. Approval of this action is exempt from the CAA's general 
conformity requirement since it does not affect direct or indirect 
emissions of criteria pollutants.

E.O. 12898 (Environmental Justice)

    This technical amendment final rule is not subject to Executive 
Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994). Executive Order 12898 
establishes Federal executive policy on environmental justice. Its main 
provision directs Federal agencies, to make environmental justice part 
of their mission by identifying and addressing, as appropriate, 
disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental 
effects of their programs, policies, and activities on minority 
populations and low-income populations in the United States. FMCSA 
determined that this rule will not have disproportionately high and 
adverse human health or environmental effects on minority or low-income 
populations because it does not change the substance of any of the 
FMCSRs.

E.O. 13211 (Energy Effects)

    FMCSA has analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211 titled, 
``Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy 
Supply, Distribution, or Use.'' The Agency has determined that it is 
not a ``significant energy action'' under that Executive Order because 
it is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under Executive Order 
12866 and is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the 
supply, distribution, or use of energy. Therefore, no Statement of 
Energy Effects is required.

E.O. 13045 (Protection of Children)

    Executive Order 13045 titled, ``Protection of Children From 
Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks'' (62 FR 19885, Apr. 23, 
1997), requires agencies issuing ``economically significant'' rules, if 
the regulation also concerns an environmental health or safety risk 
that an agency has reason to believe may disproportionately affect 
children, to include an evaluation of the regulation's environmental 
health and safety effects on children. As discussed previously, this 
rule is not economically significant. Therefore, no analysis of the 
impacts on children is required.

E.O. 12988 (Civil Justice Reform)

    This action meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) 
of E.O. 12988 titled, ``Civil Justice Reform,'' to minimize litigation, 
eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

[[Page 58477]]

E.O. 12630 (Taking of Private Property)

    This rule will not effect a taking of private property or otherwise 
have taking implications under E.O. 12630 titled, ``Governmental 
Actions and Interference With Constitutionally Protected Property 
Rights.''

National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act

    The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (15 U.S.C. 272 
note) requires Federal agencies proposing to adopt technical standards 
to consider whether voluntary consensus standards are available. If the 
Agency chooses to adopt its own standards in place of existing 
voluntary consensus standards, it must explain its decision in a 
separate statement to OMB. Because FMCSA does not intend to adopt 
technical standards, there is no need to submit a separate statement to 
OMB on this matter.

Privacy Impact Assessment

    Section 522(a)(5) of the Transportation, Treasury, Independent 
Agencies, and General Government Appropriations Act, 2005 (Pub. L. 108- 
447, Division H, Title I, 118 Stat. 2809 at 3268, Dec. 8, 2004) 
requires DOT and certain other Federal agencies to conduct a privacy 
impact assessment of each rule that will affect the privacy of 
individuals. Because this final rule will not affect the privacy of 
individuals, FMCSA did not conduct a separate privacy impact 
assessment.
