SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 19, 2014, the Commission 
published an NPR in the Federal Register proposing standards that would 
apply to ROVs. (79 FR 68964). The Commission issued the proposed rule 
under the authority of the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA). The 
Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle Association (ROHVA) requested a 
minimum 60-day extension of the comment period to receive information 
ROHVA had requested from CPSC and also to review and analyze ROV 
incident data, proposed findings, and proposed requirements in the NPR. 
The Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI) also requested an 
extension of the ROV NPR comment period to receive and analyze 
information that OPEI requested from CPSC and also to review ROV 
incident data and conduct testing on ROVs. OPEI asked that the comment 
period be extended to August 30, 2015.
    The Commission has considered the requests and is extending the 
comment period until April 8, 2015.\1\ This date is approximately 75 
days (the length of the original comment period) from the date that the 
CPSC made the information requested by ROHVA and OPEI available to the 
public at http://www.cpsc.gov/Newsroom/FOIA/Investigations-and-Incident-Reports/. The Commission believes that this extension allows 
adequate time for interested persons to submit comments on any aspect 
of the proposed rule, including the newly-available information, 
without significantly delaying the rulemaking.

    \1\ The Commission voted 5-0 to publish this notice in the 
Federal Register. Commissioner Robert S. Adler issued a statement 
regarding the matter (available at http://www.cpsc.gov/en/About-CPSC/Commissioners/Robert-Adler/Commissioner-Adler-Statements/Statement-of-Commissioner-Robert-Adler-on-the-Request-for-an-Extension-of-the-Comment-Period-for-the-Notice-of-Proposed-Rulemaking-for-Recreational-Off-Highway-Vehicles/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=Adler+Statements.)

Acting Secretary, U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
