On March 22, 2006, FTA issued a notice soliciting comments and expressions of preliminary interest with respect to the Secretary of Transportation's establishment and implementation of FTA's Public-Private Partnership Pilot Program (the Pilot Program) (71 FR 14568). FTA received comments from nineteen parties in response to this notice. On January 19, 2007, FTA issued a Notice of Establishment of Public-Private Partnership Pilot Program, which set forth the definitive terms of the Pilot Program and invited interested parties to submit applications to the Pilot Program by March 31, 2007 (72 FR 2583). In this notice, FTA indicated that it would, by separate notice, summarize and respond to comments on the March 22, 2006 notice no later than March 31, 2007.
The volume of work underway within FTA has prevented publication of response to comments by the date previously indicated. Therefore, FTA intends to summarize and respond to comments on the March 22, 2006 notice no later than April 30, 2007.
This notice does not affect the application deadlines to the Pilot Program. Therefore, to be considered in Start Printed Page 15184FTA's first quarterly review of applications to the Pilot Program, applications must be received by FTA on or before March 31, 2007. Applications received by FTA between March 31, 2007, and July 1, 2007, will be reviewed in FTA's second quarterly review of applications to the Pilot Program.Start Signature
