On April 4, 2000, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) published a notice in the Federal Register (65 FR 17704) announcing that a public hearing will be held based upon the Northeast Illinois Railroad Corporation's (Metra) request seeking a permanent waiver of compliance with the Passenger Equipment Safety Standards, 49 CFR part 238.303, which requires exterior calendar day inspection, and 238.313, which requires a class one brake test be performed by a qualified maintenance person. Metra has withdrawn its request; therefore, the hearing scheduled for Tuesday, May 16, 2000, in Chicago, Illinois, has been canceled.
FRA regrets any inconvenience occasioned by the cancellation of this hearing.Start Signature
