Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), DOT.

ACTION:

Final rule; corrections.

SUMMARY:

FRA published in the Federal Register of November 8, 1999, (64 FR 60966), a document making miscellaneous amendments to its requirements for the qualification and certification of locomotive engineers (49 CFR part 240). Inadvertently, mistakes were made in four different items in that publication.

First, in § 240.7, a revised definition of locomotive is missing a parenthesis.

Second, in § 240.7, an added definition of service has one misplaced quotation mark.

Third, a new § 240.309(e)(6) was published without describing the amendment as a revision of the existing paragraph (e)(6). Without a correction, the section would contain two different paragraphs numbered (e)(6). This document removes the older paragraph (e)(6).

Fourth, two revisions were made to the penalty schedule regarding § 240.123 without describing the amendments. Without a correction, the penalty schedule would not be amended; instead, the revision would be published separately after the penalty schedule.

DATES:

Effective on September 29, 2000.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

FRA published a document in the Federal Register of November 8, 1999, (64 FR 60966) amending § 240.7. A revised definition of locomotive was published. However, the revision was missing a parenthesis. A second close parenthesis should have been added prior to the colon.

FRA published a document in the Federal Register of November 8, 1999, (64 FR 60966) amending § 240.7. A definition of service was added. However, the new definition has one misplaced quotation mark. The last sentence should only have quotation marks around the word “filing” instead of quotation marks around the phrase “filing in this section.”

FRA published a document in the Federal Register of November 8, 1999, (64 FR 60966) amending § 240.309. This section was amended by revising paragraphs (e), (e)(3), (e)(5), (e)(7), and (e)(8), removing paragraph (e)(10) and correcting a clerical error, which had created a second paragraph (e), by redesignating this second paragraph (e) as paragraph (h). A paragraph numbered (e)(6) was published without an explanation of how to treat it in the amendatory language. Although this mistake occurred, the preamble in that Start Printed Page 58483document explained that FRA intended to revise paragraph (e)(6). This correction removes the old paragraph (e)(6) so that only the revised paragraph (e)(6) that was published on November 8, 1999, will remain part of the rule.

FRA published a document in the Federal Register of November 8, 1999, (64 FR 60966) amending “Appendix A to Part 240-Schedule of Civil Penalties.” The appendix was amended by “adding penalty entries for §§ 240.104 and 240.231 and by revising the penalty entries for §§ 240.105, 240.111, 240.117, 240.121, 240.225, 240.229, 240.305, 240.307, 240.309 and footnote number 1.” Two revisions to § 240.123 were published without any explanation of how to treat them in the amendatory language. By revising the penalty schedule for this section, the paragraph citations will match up better with the paragraphs cited to in the regulatory text. The sum total of these corrections are to change “(a)” to “(b)” and “(b)” to “(c).” Thus, only the revised penalty schedule entry for § 240.123 that was published on November 8, 1999, will remain part of the rule.
