Title 3--
The President
                Memorandum of January 1, 1994

 

Determination Under the Bus Regulatory Reform Act 
                of 1982

                Memorandum for the Secretary of Transportation

                Section 6 of the Bus Regulatory Reform Act of 1982 
                imposed a moratorium on the issuance of certificates or 
                permits to motor carriers domiciled in, or owned or 
                controlled by, persons of a contiguous foreign country. 
                The Act authorized the President to remove the 
                moratorium in whole or in part for any country or 
                political subdivision thereof upon determining that 
                such action is in the national interest. Sixty days' 
                advance notice to the Congress is required whenever the 
                removal or modification applies to a foreign contiguous 
                country or political subdivision thereof that 
                substantially prohibits the granting of motor carrier 
                authority to persons from the United States.

                As set forth in the Statement of Administrative Action 
                regarding the North American Free Trade Agreement 
                (NAFTA) that I submitted to the Congress on November 3, 
                1993, the moratorium with respect to Mexico will be 
                lifted in phases to coincide with the schedule of 
                liberalization in the relevant provisions of the NAFTA. 
                The NAFTA specifically states that the moratorium will 
                not apply to the provision of cross-border charter or 
                tour bus services as of the date of entry into force of 
                the Agreement.

                This is to give public notice that, pursuant to section 
                6 of the Bus Regulatory Reform Act of 1982, 49 U.S.C. 
                section 10922(l)(2)(A), on November 3, 1993, I gave the 
                Congress notice of my intention to make a limited 
                modification to the moratorium imposed by that section 
                and all actions taken by my predecessors under that 
                section on the issuance of certificates or permits to 
                motor carriers domiciled in, or owned or controlled by, 
                persons of Mexico. This modification will take effect 
                on January 1, 1994, the 60th day after my notice to the 
                Congress.

                The moratorium is modified only to authorize the 
                Interstate Commerce Commission to grant Mexican motor 
                carriers authority to transport passengers in charter 
                or tour bus operations, in foreign commerce, in round-
                trip or one-way service between Mexico and the United 
                States.

                This action applies only to international charter or 
                tour bus operations, does not allow for point-to-point 
                bus service within the United States, and does not 
                authorize companies to conduct cross-border regular 
                route bus service.

                Effective January 1, 1994, the Interstate Commerce 
                Commission will begin to accept and process 
                expeditiously all applications for operating authority 
                from Mexican owned, controlled, or domiciled charter 
                and tour bus firms.

                This determination shall be published in the Federal 
                Register.

                    (Presidential Sig.)>

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    Washington, January 1, 1994.
