SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On April 9, 2012, FRA published a final rule related to locomotive safety standards. See 77 FR 21312. The final rule established a public docket to receive petitions for reconsideration in response to FRA's final rule related to locomotive safety standards and comments on such petitions. That final rule mistakenly lists FR-2009-0095 (“incorrect docket”) as the docket number for the final rule. The correct docket number for this proceeding is FRA-2009-94 (“correct docket”). FRA requests that petitions for reconsideration related to the final rule and comments on such petitions be submitted to the correct docket.

Petitions for reconsideration and comments on such petitions submitted to the incorrect docket will be fully considered as part of the locomotive safety standards rulemaking. Because the incorrect docket is listed in the April 9, 2012, Federal Register document issuing the final rule, petitions for reconsideration and comments on such petitions submitted to the incorrect docket will remain valid. FRA will transfer all comments and information that are received in the incorrect docket to the correct docket. As such, interested parties that wish to read petitions for reconsideration related to the final rule and comments on such petitions should access docket FRA-2009-0094 to locate them.

Issued in Washington, DC, on April 12, 2012.

Ron Hynes,

Acting Deputy Associate Administrator for Regulatory and Legislative Operations.
