Federal Highway Administration

49 CFR Part 377

RIN 2125-AD96

Payment of Transportation Charges; Authority Correction

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule; technical correction.


SUMMARY: This document makes a technical amendment to the authority 
statement for the regulation on payment of transportation charges in 
order to remove the obsolete authority citations provided in the 
subparts. This correction is necessitated by changes in the statute and 
the transfer of regulatory functions to the FHWA from the former 
Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) as a result of the ICC Termination 
Act of 1995 (ICCTA). This amendment would remove the outdated ICC 
authority citations in 49 CFR part 377 of the Code of Federal 

DATES: This final rule is effective March 10, 1998.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Michael J. Falk, Office of the 
Chief Counsel, Motor Carrier Law Division, (202) 366-1384, Federal 
Highway Administration, 400 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, D.C. 
20590. Office hours are from 7:45 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., e.t., Monday 
through Friday, except Federal holidays.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The ICCTA, Pub. L. 104-88, 109 Stat. 803, 
abolished the ICC and transferred certain functions to the Department 
of Transportation. On October 21, 1996, the FHWA published a final rule 
that transferred and redesignated certain motor carrier transportation 
regulations from 49 CFR chapter X, to the FHWA in 49 CFR chapter III. 
In part 377, of title 49 CFR, ``Payment of Transportation Charges,'' 
subparts A and B (formerly parts 1052 and 1320, respectively) included 
the new statutory authority at the part level, but inadvertently failed 
to remove the outdated ICC authority citations at the subpart levels.
    In consideration of the foregoing, the FHWA removes the former ICC 
authority at the subpart levels and retains the part level authority 
statement as set forth below:


    The authority citation for 49 CFR part 377 continues to read as 
follows and the authority citations for subparts A and B are removed:

    Authority: 49 U.S.C. 13101, 13301, 13701-13702, 13706, 13707, 
and 14101; 49 CFR 1.48.

    Issued: March 3, 1998.
Frank L. Calhoun,
Assistant Chief Counsel, Federal Highway Administration.
