This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

On July 9, 2003, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of lottery and allocation procedures for slots at Washington Reagan National Airport (DCA) (68 FR 41037). In this notice the FAA stated that Title 49 of the United States Code (U.S.C.) 41714(h)(5)(A) amends the regulatory definition of a limited incumbent carrier to a carrier that holds or operates fewer than 20 lots and includes slot exemptions in the term “slots.”
The FAA has further reviewed this matter and clarifies that the definitions set forth in 49 U.S.C. 41714(h) apply to sections 41714-41718 and 41734(h) only. Therefore, the regulatory definitions of a “new entrant” carrier and a “limited incumbent” carrier, as set forth respectively in 14 CFR 93.213(a)(1) and 93.213(a)(5) are applicable for purposes of the lottery at DCA.Start Signature
