the Federal Register would follow within a few days of completion of this review. In addition, these dates are based on current schedules. Information received subsequent to the issuance of this agenda could result in a decision not to take regulatory action or in changes to proposed publication dates. For example, the need for further evaluation could result in a later publication date; evidence of a greater need for the regulation could result in an earlier publication date. Finally, a dot (<bullet>) preceding an entry indicates that the entry appears in the agenda for the first time. Mailing Lists for Regulatory Documents To assist the public in obtaining regulatory documents issued within the Department of Transportation, an Appendix A has been included in this document. The appendix contains instructions on how to be placed on mailing lists for, or to obtain copies of, specific regulatory documents, including the Department's semiannual regulations agenda issued by the operating administrations of the Department and the Office of the Secretary. There is no charge for this service; however, because of the costs involved, the number of copies of a document forwarded to an individual requestor may be limited. Persons already on mailing lists for particular documents within the Department will remain on those lists and should not reapply. By following the instructions specified in the appendix, a person can be placed on a mailing list for future copies of the Department's regulations agenda, which will be updated and published in the Federal Register every year during April and October. By using the agenda, individuals can determine which notice or advance notice of proposed rulemaking, to be issued by elements of the Department, is of interest to them. Then, using the instructions in the appendix, such persons also can be placed on a mailing list to ensure that, after the document of interest is issued, a copy will be mailed to them for their review and comment. In this way, individuals will be relieved of the burden of having to review the Federal Register, perhaps on a daily basis. The Department expects that this process will ensure that those people placed on mailing lists will receive early notice so that their views on the document can be adequately prepared and presented within the established comment period. General Rulemaking Contact Persons To assist persons desiring to obtain general information concerning the rulemaking process within the Department's operating administrations, an Appendix B has been added to the agenda. This appendix sets forth the addresses and the telephone numbers of the persons who can respond quickly to requests for general rulemaking information. Please note, however, that questions related to particular rulemaking actions should still be referred to the contact person listed with the particular rulemaking on the agenda. Public Rulemaking Dockets To facilitate the inspection of docket files and the submission of comments by the public, an Appendix C sets forth the addresses and working hours for the Rules Docket for each operating administration. Request for Comments Agenda Our agenda is intended primarily for the use of the public. Since its inception, we have made modifications and refinements that we believe provide the public with more helpful information, as well as make the agenda easier to use. We would also like you, the public, to make suggestions or comments on how the agenda could be further improved. For example, do you find the information presented in an easily understandable manner? Do you find it easy to follow a regulation's development from agenda to agenda? Do you find that the format for setting out the information enables you to use the agenda easily? Do you find that the presentation of the information in the agenda is clearly explained in the preamble to the agenda? Your responses to these questions or any other comments or suggestions you may have should be sent to Neil R. Eisner, whose address appears above. Reviews In an effort to comply further with the spirit of Executive Order 12866 and the Regulatory Flexibility Act, we are also seeking suggestions on existing regulations that should be included in our review of existing regulations; that is, which existing regulations issued by an operating administration of the Department or the Office of the Secretary do you believe need to be reviewed to determine whether they should be revised or revoked? The Department is particularly interested in obtaining information on requirements that have a ``significant economic impact on small entities'' and, therefore, must be reviewed under the Regulatory Flexibility Act. If you have any suggested regulations, please send them, along with your explanation of why they should be reviewed, to the concerned operating administration or the Office of the Secretary. To ease the process for submission of suggestions of regulations warranting review by departmental entities, each operating administration and the Office of the Secretary maintains a continuously open regulatory review docket. Suggestions should be submitted to the docket section of the relevant modal administration or Office of the Secretary, attention ``Regulatory Review Docket,'' with the following specific rulemaking docket numbers: Federal Aviation Administration, Docket 26768; Federal Highway Administration, Docket 92-12; Federal Railroad Administration, Docket RSS-1-92-1; Federal Transit Administration, Docket 92A; Maritime Administration, Docket R-141; National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Docket 92-04; Office of the Secretary, Docket 47978; Research and Special Programs Administration, Docket RR-1; Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation, Attn: Marc Owen, Chief Counsel; United States Coast Guard, Docket 92-005. The addresses of the docket sections are contained in Appendix C. Multiple copies of the suggestions would be appreciated but are not required. In accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act, comments are specifically invited on regulations that are targeted for review under the RFA. Those comments should be addressed to the ``contact'' person of the operating administration involved. Purpose The Department is publishing this regulations agenda in the Federal Register to share with interested members of the public the Department's preliminary expectations regarding its future regulatory actions. This should enable the public to be more aware of the Department's regulatory activity. Knowledge of the nature and scope of this activity, as well as the specific proposals and reviews being considered, should result in more effective public participation in the Department's regulatory activity. For example, awareness of the dates when notices may be issued seeking public comment should allow appropriate planning and more efficient use of the comment period. By providing the expected date for a decision on whether to issue a final rule, the Department expects that more appropriate planning by those concerned with the regulation will also be possible. This publication in the Federal Register does not impose any binding obligation on the Department or any of the offices within the Department with regard to any specific item on the agenda. Regulatory action, in addition to the items listed, is not precluded. If further information is desired on any of the items listed in the agenda, the public is encouraged to contact the individual listed for the particular item. Additional information concerning the agenda in general or the Department's Regulatory Policies and Procedures may be obtained from Neil R. Eisner, whose address and telephone number appear above.
