Department of Transportation proposing to readopt rules on aeronautical investigation and enforcement
(Trenton) - The New Jersey Department of Transportation is proposing to readopt with amendment and a new rule N.J.A.C. 16:60, the rules governing the Department’s regulations on Aeronautical Investigation and Enforcement. The rules outline the specific steps to be followed in reporting aircraft accidents, incidents, and forced landings and delineate the State's responsibilities for assistance in case of such events and investigations subsequent thereto. The rules also describe the procedures for the issuance of summons and complaints and empower specific employees of the Division of Aeronautics with the authority to function as law enforcement officers in compliance with the provisions of Title 6 of the New Jersey Statutes.
The proposed rule appears in the July 16, 2007 issue of the New Jersey Register. The public has until September 14, 2007 to comment on the proposal. Persons wishing to comment on the proposal must provide their comments in writing to Miriam Crum, Administrative Practice Officer, NJ Department of Transportation, 1035 Parkway Avenue, PO Box 600, Trenton, NJ 08625-0600. Fax: (609) 530-3841. Comments must be postmarked or sent by telefacsimile on or before September 14, 2007 which is the close of the 60-day public comment period.
Comments submitted to the Department on the proposed rulemaking are public records and are available for public inspection by prior appointment during normal Department business hours.
