The agency proposal follows:

Summary
The South Jersey Transportation Authority (Authority) was established pursuant to N.J.S.A. 27:25A-1 et seq., effective August 9, 1991. The Authority is the successor to the New Jersey Expressway Authority and the Atlantic County Transportation Authority. It was established to acquire, construct, maintain, operate and support expressway and transportation projects. The Authority provides a coordinated effort for the development of the transportation systems of the southern region of the State of New Jersey. N.J.S.A. 27:25A-24 specifically establishes the Atlantic City International Airport (Airport) as a transportation project of the Authority. The Authority has been assuming an increasingly larger role in the Administration of the Airport. In fact, the airport operator certificate was transferred from the Federal Aviation Administration to the Authority on April 1, 1998.
The purpose of the rules proposed for readoption with amendments is to provide the Authority with properly promulgated rules concerning the everyday operations of the Airport. Pursuant to N.J.S.A. 52:14B-5.1c, N.J.A.C. 19:76 will expire on May 18, 2007.
Subchapter 1 provides general provisions which include definitions and general conditions which govern the use of the Airport. General conditions include such topics as a permission system for the use of the Airport, conditions governing commercial and noncommercial activity, advertising at the Airport, identification and badging, personal conduct, tenant obligations, emergency actions, solicitation, picketing, and the use of the paging system.
Subchapter 2 concerns general aeronautical operations at the Airport. This subchapter provides, among other things, for the proper operation of aircraft at the Airport and responsibility for the lack of such proper operation. Topics included within operation of aircraft are provisions concerning radio communications, cleaning, maintenance and repair of aircraft, certification of aircraft, licensing of pilots, parking and taxiing of aircraft and the operation of aircraft engines. The Authority is also provided with the authority to control the use of Airport ramps. Provisions are also provided to deal with derelict and disabled aircrafts.
Subchapter 3 concerns vehicle operation procedures. This subchapter chiefly concerns the operation of vehicles within Airport areas not generally open to the public. Topics included are authorization to operate a vehicle in such areas, traffic control, manner of vehicle operation, vehicle accidents, safety, identification, permits, parking and abandonment. This subchapter also provides rules governing public parking at the Airport.
Subchapter 4 deals with fire and safety at the Airport. This subchapter includes detailed provisions concerning fueling operations at the Airport. Also included are safety provisions concerning such topics as smoking, open flame operations, storage of materials, hazardous materials, fire extinguishers, heating of hangars, doping, and cleaning operations.
Subchapter 5 concerns general commercial ground transportation services at the Airport. Thus, this subchapter provides for the efficient, convenient, and safe movement of passengers to and from the Airport by buses, limousines, vans and taxicabs. Significantly, fees are imposed on the use of the Airport by these businesses. These fees are discussed in detail in the Economic Impact Statement provided below.
Lastly, Subchapter 6 includes various miscellaneous provisions including penalties, conflicts, no grant of rights, appeals, requests for permission or approval and severability.
In short, the rules proposed for readoption with amendments are intended to provide the Authority with an organized concise set of rules which cover the entire gamut of everyday operations at the Airport.
As the Authority has provided a 60-day comment period in this notice of proposal, this notice is excepted from the rulemaking calendar requirements, pursuant to N.J.A.C. 1:30-3.3(a)(5).

Summary of Amendments
The following is the summary of the substantive amendments to the rules proposed for readoption:
Under N.J.A.C. 19:76-1.2, the definition of "advertising" is being amended to include video/dynamic signs. The definition of "Airport personnel" is being amended to include Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officers and law enforcement officers (LEO). The term "Contract Manager" has been deleted and replaced by the term "contractor." The definition of "contractor" is the same as the definition for "Contract Manager" except that a "contractor" is an entity as opposed to a person. The terms and definitions for "Customer Service," "Customer Service Desk," "LEO" and "TSA" have been added to the rules. The term "Federal Regulations" has been amended to include Transportation Security Administration Regulations, 49 CFR Chapter XII. The term "loading gate" has been deleted because it is no longer applicable. The term "Operations Office" has been deleted and replaced by the term "Operations Department."
Throughout the rules, the term "Contract Manager," which has been deleted, has been replaced with either of the new terms "Operations Department" or "contractor." Also, throughout the rules, the reference to FAR Part 107 has been replaced with 49 CFR Part 1542.
N.J.A.C. 19:76-1.4(b)5 has been amended to now require the applicant's address and/or telephone number. Previously, the applicant's address and/or telephone number was optional.
N.J.A.C. 19:76-1.5(a) has been amended to provide that a Certificate of Registration is valid for five days unless otherwise noted on the Certificate of Registration.
N.J.A.C. 19:76-1.21 has been amended to shift the responsibility for receiving lost articles at the Airport to Customer Service from the Security Office. The Customer Service Desk, as opposed to the Security Office, is now responsible for completing the lost and found report.
N.J.A.C. 19:76-1.25 has been amended reserving the right to restrict the carrying of firearms and weapons in accordance with Federal Regulations and State and local laws.
N.J.A.C. 19:76-1.35(b) has been amended to also authorize designated representatives of the Authority and an LEO to suspend the rules in an emergency at the Airport.
N.J.A.C. 19:76-2.6(c) has been amended to require the filing of an Operator Accident Report within 24 hours or as required by the Federal Aviation Administration.
N.J.A.C. 19:76-2.7(d) has been amended providing that the Airport reserves the right to recover all costs related to the removal of disabled aircraft from the owner.
N.J.A.C. 19:76-2.15, Taxiing, towing and parking, has been amended to include subparagraph (s) which provides an exemption from the requirements of said section for emergency helicopters.
N.J.A.C. 19:76-4.2(i) has been amended to require the reporting of all spillages as opposed to the reporting of spillages of fuel in excess of 10 feet in any direction or 50 square feet as previously required.
N.J.A.C. 19:76-5.2(1) has been amended to delete the Operations Office as an area to receive the entry fee ticket. Vehicle operators shall give the entry fee ticket to Airport personnel at designated locations only.

Social Impact
The rules proposed for readoption with amendments will have a positive social impact by providing a concise organized set of rules for the internal operations of the Airport. The rules will better enable the Authority to fulfill its statutory function as the entity with responsibility for the operation of the Airport and, thereby, benefit the public which utilizes this public transportation facility.
Time, place and manner limitations are placed upon the exercise of non-commercial expression to the extent they are necessary to ensure the orderly and safe flow of pedestrians and avoid service disruptions. Persons who decide to utilize the Airport for non-commercial expression must obtain a certificate of registration. These certificates are available at a cost to be determined. It is important to note that these rules do not apply to private expressions, such as reading, talking or wearing political buttons. These activities may be conducted in any public area of the Airport. Picketing and demonstrations, however, require the certificate of registration. Other restrictions are placed upon Airport customers. Again, such restrictions are limited and necessary for the safety of the public at large and the efficient operation of the Airport. For instance, N.J.A.C. 19:76-1.28 proposes to regulate personal conduct by prohibiting conduct such as bathing, urinating or defecating on any part of the Airport, sleeping in the terminals or parking lots, and roller skating. Similarly, N.J.A.C. 19:76-1.31 seeks to preserve property and N.J.A.C. 19:76-1.16 regulates bringing animals to the Airport.
The rules will have limited impact on the businesses which currently exist at the Airport. The rules will not affect existing contracts with the Authority. The rules will, however, possibly affect the general conduct of such businesses at the Airport and certainly regulate same to a degree. Thus, businesses will benefit by having a precise set of rules to guide their actions. In addition, the rules provide a procedure to appeal decisions of the Authority or its representatives.
The rules which regulate the conduct of businesses promote the safe and efficient operation of the Airport. All persons employed at the Airport must wear an identification badge. Persons who require unescorted access to restricted areas require an Airport Identification Badge issued by the Operations Department. Air cargo operators must designate a security officer. Airport tenants also have security obligations within their leased areas. The sale of cigarette lighters with flammable liquid reservoirs or similar ignition devices, as well as containers of lighter fluid, is prohibited.
There are also numerous rules proposed which address general safety concerns. For example, N.J.A.C. 19:76-1.25 essentially limits the carrying of firearms to watchmen or guards. Subchapter 2 contains general aeronautical operation rules and Subchapter 3 concerns general vehicle operations at the Airport. Fire and safety rules are contained in Subchapter 4 and smoking is limited to areas designated by the Authority. Specific rules are also provided for the storage of materials generally and hazardous materials specifically. Fire extinguishers are also required.
In short, the rules proposed for readoption with amendments should have limited impact on existing businesses at the Airport and will benefit the public at large by enabling the Authority to ensure a safe and efficient public transportation facility.

Economic Impact
The rules proposed for readoption with amendments will have an economic impact on the Authority, providers of ground transportation services and to a limited degree the general public. The rules impose an annual permit fee of $ 350.00 per taxicab and $ 100.00 per courtesy vehicle. Motor buses are subject to a $ 5.00 entry fee and limousines and limousine vans are subject to a $ 2.00 entry fee. The Authority believes such fees are long overdue. The providers of ground transportation services have been able to take advantage of the revenue opportunity available at the Airport without paying anything towards the costs of making this profit opportunity available. The Authority has also expended considerable sums of money on expanding and renovating the Airport. These improvements result in greater utilization of the Airport and subsequently increase the revenue opportunities for the providers of ground transportation services. In addition, the Authority continues to maintain the Airport and provide adjunct services such as lighting, other utilities and security. Simply, it is no longer fair or feasible for the Authority's general airline revenues to continue to pay all costs which allow these private ventures to make considerable profit. The new fees represent a reasonable contribution towards the costs incurred by the Authority. The Authority, thusly believes these rules are necessary for the management, use, maintenance and operation of the Airport and are expressly permitted pursuant to N.J.S.A. 27:25A-7(q).
Other businesses which operate at the Airport are not adversely economically impacted. All businesses shall operate at the Airport pursuant to an agreement with the Authority. The rules do not alter these existing contractual agreements. Future contracts will be negotiated between the parties with full knowledge of the rules. Thus, costs, if any, are imposed by virtue of contract and not these rules. No fees are imposed for such approvals, permissions and permits except as noted previously for ground transportation permits.
There are also few indirect compliance costs associated with these rules. Each airline is required to post a sign at its interline baggage receiving center which indicates the hours when the bags may be received. The minimal sign cost is offset by the necessity to provide such information to customers. Tenants are required to file a construction/alteration application with the Airport Manager before changing their leased property. Drawings are required with the application. Such drawings would be necessary for the proper completion of construction in any event and, therefore, the cost for additional drawing copies is negligible. Access to restricted areas requires an Airport Identification Badge. A reasonable cost is imposed to offset Authority costs for badge production, including replacement of lost badges. Tenants are also responsible for internal security of their leased premises. The costs of such security is justified by both the protection of the tenants' own property and the safety provided for the public at large. Federal rules also require such security. If the Airport is assessed a fine due to the action or inaction of a tenant, said tenant must reimburse the Authority the amount of the fine together with legal costs. Tenants are also assigned housekeeping responsibilities. Keeping the leased premises clean benefits both the tenant and the Airport.
As noted previously, the rules contain a specific process for requests for permission or approval. The nature of the request may result in some professional and/or administrative costs. Requirements include a drawing which indicates the location for which the request is made and a detailed explanation of the reasons for the request, and the impact of the request on efficient and safe air travel. Obviously, a complex request may result in some professional and/or administrative costs to meet these requirements.
Furthermore, many of the activities at the Airport are subject to Federal regulations. The rules expressly state that the intent is for these rules to operate in conjunction with Federal rules and not to supersede said rules. In this vein the Authority has received and hopefully will continue to receive, Federal monies to support Airport improvements. The Master Agreement with the United States Department of Transportation specifically states that the Authority will maintain a fee and rental structure for the facilities and services being provided Airport users which will make the Airport as self-sustaining as possible taking into account the volume of traffic and economy of collection. The proposed ground transportation fees are in accord with this Federal mandate.
Lastly, N.J.S.A. 27:25A-21 allows for the assessment of fines for certain violations on Authority projects and penalties may be imposed pursuant to rules adopted under the broad powers granted in N.J.S.A. 27:25A-7(q). The Authority believes efficient management of its affairs requires violators to be subject to an administrative fee of $ 50.00 in addition to any Court imposed penalty. If rule violations are unsuccessfully contested in Court, the administrative fee is $ 150.00. The purpose of this administrative fee is to at least partially recover the costs associated with pursuing rule violations. The additional amount for contested cases represents an attempt to partially recover costs associated with work time lost testifying in Court. While the administrative fee is intended to partially recover costs associated with violations, it also serves as a deterrent. Obviously, such costs can be avoided through rule compliance.

Federal Standards Statement
These rules proposed for readoption with amendments are intended to complement Federal standards governing Airport operations, particularly Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR), set forth under Title 14, Aeronautics and Space, of the Code of Federal Regulations, and Transportation Security Administration Regulations (TSR), set forth under Title 49, Transportation, of the Code of Federal Regulations, as described below.
FAR Part 13 - Investigation and Enforcement Procedures
FAR Part 16 - Rules of Practice for Federally Assisted Airport Enforcement Proceedings
FAR Part 36 - Noise Standards: Aircraft Type and Airworthiness Certification
FAR Part 77 - Objects Affecting Navigable Airspace
FAR Part 91 - (Subpart I) - Operating Noise Limits
FAR Part 93 - Special Air Traffic Rules (Subpart K) - High Density Traffic Airports (Subpart S) - Allocation of Commuter and Air Carrier IFR Operations at High Density Traffic Airports
FAR Part 103 - Ultralight Vehicles

FAR Part 171 - Non-Federal Navigation Facilities
TSR Part 1542 - Airport Security
In an attempt to avoid inconsistencies and conflict, the rules occasionally make reference to the Federal rule on a particular topic. The rules do not exceed any Federal standards. In fact, proposed N.J.A.C. 19:76-6.2(b) specifically indicates that these rules shall not supersede or abrogate the regulations established by the Federal Aviation Administration or other Federal agencies.

Jobs Impact
The Authority does not anticipate that any jobs will be generated or lost as a result of the rules proposed for readoption with amendments.

Agriculture Industry Impact
The rules proposed for readoption with amendments have no impact on the agriculture industry.

Regulatory Flexibility Analysis
The rules proposed for readoption with amendments do not impose any reporting or recordkeeping requirements, which differ from current practices, however, the rules do impose compliance requirements upon businesses which conduct commercial activities at the Airport and some of these businesses may qualify as small businesses, as that term is defined in the Regulatory Flexibility Act, N.J.S.A. 52:14B-16 et seq. The employment of professionals should not be necessary and any costs to small businesses should be minimal administrative costs.
It is believed that most of the businesses upon which the rules impose compliance requirements employ more than 100 full-time employees and thusly do not constitute small businesses. In some cases, however, affected businesses may possibly include small businesses. Specific compliance requirements are imposed upon baggage handling operators, personal baggage cart concessionaires, loading bridge operators, commercial photographers, businesses distributing materials at the Airport, Airport tenants, tour operators, tug and trailer operators, operators of limousines, limousine vans and motor buses, courtesy vehicle operators, taxicab operators and air cargo operators.
Baggage handling operators are required to comply with the provided procedures for the actual operation of their business at the Airport. In addition their employees must wear an identification card issued by the Operations Department. Use of personal baggage carts is restricted to rented units. Competition with or hindrance of the services provided by the Airport Skycaps is expressly prohibited. The personal baggage cart concessionaire is required to collect unreturned units. In addition, other safety related procedures are imposed. Air cargo operators are required to designate a security officer and all employees must wear an identification badge. Apron or ramp employees must wear a reflective color-coded vest type garment. The air cargo operator must also establish a barrier or paint a yellow line, which is distinguishable from a taxi-way line, beyond which no unescorted individual is permitted. Air cargo rules must be conspicuously posted within the Air Operations Area. Missing cargo valued at $ 100.00 or more must be reported to the Operations Department. Escorts are required for certain high value cargo valued in excess of $ 25,000. Finally, each air cargo operator must designate a high value cargo storage area and maintain a log for this area. Loading bridges may only be operated by personnel who have completed an Authority approved training program. Operators must provide evidence of insurance to the Authority. All other loading bridge rule provisions relate to safe operation. Commercial photography is prohibited except by written permission of the Operations Department. N.J.A.C. 19:76-6.5 contains the requirements to obtain permission or approval. The prohibition on commercial photography does not apply to bonafide news coverage by the media in authorized areas. No business can sell or distribute materials without a Certificate of Registration. The process to obtain a Certificate is included in N.J.A.C. 19:76-1.4. Tour operators are also required to obtain an identification badge and conduct activities in areas designated by the Operations Department. Tour operators must also provide a greeter/coordinator for each flight. Safety requirements are imposed upon tug and trailer operators. In addition, such operators may not tow a train in excess of four baggage or cargo carts without Authority or Operations Department approval.
Airport tenants are largely governed by the terms and conditions of their agreement with the Authority. The rules do, however, impose certain general safety, public health and welfare requirements. In addition, tenants who desire to alter, repair or change their leased space must file a construction/alteration application. The application requirements include a description of the work, names of any professionals and six drawings. Specific security obligations are also imposed upon tenants for their leased area. Tenants are also liable to the Authority for any penalty imposed upon it for a violation of Federal Aviation Administration regulations due to the tenant's failure to provide appropriate security. The rules also impose specified housekeeping and storage requirements upon tenants.
Subchapter 5 is entirely devoted to the regulation of ground transportation services. Many of the requirements are related to safety and efficiency of operation. Ground transportation providers are prohibited from cruising and solicitation of business is prohibited except by arrangement with the Authority. Insurance coverage is required to be in accordance with the ordinances of the Township of Egg Harbor. Specific rules for limousines, limousine vans and motor buses require that rates must be posted and available to the customer. The operator must also provide an individual to perform meet and greet functions, handle baggage and any special assistance needed by disabled customers. Only pre-arranged customers may be picked up. Motor bus operators must pay an entry fee of $ 5.00 and limousine/limousine van operators must pay a $ 2.00 fee. Courtesy vehicle operators and taxicabs must obtain an annual permit. Taxicab operators must display the license, permit, fares and insignia issued by Egg Harbor Township and the Authority. Specific operation procedures are imposed upon taxicab operators at the Airport to ensure the safe, orderly and efficient flow of vehicles and pedestrians and also to avoid disruption of Airport services.
The Economic Impact statement provided above discussed in detail the limited compliance costs which may be imposed upon small businesses. In addition, the Economic Impact statement specifically discussed in some detail the fees imposed on the providers of ground transportation services. While many large companies are involved with such services, some of the businesses providing these services are likely to qualify as small businesses under the Act. Obviously, these fees will constitute a direct cost to such businesses and not an indirect cost such as professional fees or administrative costs associated with recordkeeping, reporting or other compliance requirements. As previously noted, the large sums of money expended on Airport improvements have resulted in increased Airport traffic. Thus, business has increased for the providers of ground transportation services. A small annual fee of $ 350.00 per taxicab should easily be absorbed within this increased revenue. Similarly, the entry fee of $ 5.00 per bus and $ 2.00 per limousine should also be absorbed. Additionally, the entry fees are only payable upon commencement of a profit opportunity and should be an extremely small portion of the total revenue realized per bus or limousine pick-up.
It is doubtful that compliance will require small businesses to employ outside professional services. Generally, applications for permits, Certificate of Registration or Authority permission are not very complex. In addition, such matters are already being handled routinely without outside professionals. Of course, it is possible that a particular matter would be complex enough to require outside assistance. For instance, tenant alteration plans to be submitted with a construction application may require the services of an engineer or architect. It is, however, believed that such complex situations are not likely to involve small businesses.
As noted above, the Authority has minimized the direct costs which may be imposed upon small businesses. The fees are only payable upon the commencement of a profit seeking opportunity. Such opportunities have been greatly enhanced by the increased traffic generated by large Authority expenditures for Airport improvements. Certainly such fees represent a small fraction of the revenues generated through these improvements.
Obviously, the overwhelming majority of compliance requirements discussed above are not monetary in nature. Rather, they relate to security, safety and orderly flow of pedestrian/vehicle traffic and efficiency of operation. Thus, employees and vehicles are required to wear identification and specified activities are limited to certain areas. Certificates of Registration or permits are required to regulate the use of the Airport for obvious security and safety reasons. In short, such requirements are typical of any airport and are imposed for the protection of public health, safety and welfare.

Smart Growth Impact
The rules proposed for readoption with amendments will have no impact on the achievement of smart growth in the implementation of the State Development and Redevelopment Plan.
