SUMMARY: The Federal Communications Commission, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork burden invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on the following information collection(s), as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995, Public Law 104–13. An agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number. No person shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) that does not display a valid control number. Comments are requested concerning (a) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Commission’s burden estimate; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) ways to VerDate jul<14>2003 18:49 Feb 23, 2005 Jkt 205001 minimize the burden of the collection of information on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. DATES: Written Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) comments should be submitted on or before March 28, 2005. If you anticipate that you will be submitting PRA comments, but find it difficult to do so within the period of time allowed by this notice, you should advise the contact listed below as soon as possible.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Control No.: 3060–0823. Title: Pay Telephone Reclassification, Memorandum Opinion and Order, CC Docket No. 96–128. Form No.: N/A. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents: Business or other forprofit. Number of Respondents: 400. Estimated Time Per Response: 2–35 hours. Frequency of Response: Recordkeeping requirement, third party disclosure requirement, and on occasion, monthly, and quarterly reporting requirements. Total Annual Burden: 44,700 hours. Total Annual Cost: $480,000. Privacy Act Impact Assessment: No. Needs and Uses: The Commission is seeking extension (no change in requirements) for this information collection. The Commission is submitting this information collection to the OMB in order to obtain the full three-year clearance from them. For background, the Commission adopted and released a Memorandum Opinion and Order in March 1998, which clarified the requirements established in the Payphones Orders for the provision of payphone-specific coding digits and for tariffs that local exchange carriers (LECs) must file pursuant to the Payphone Orders. The Commission also granted a waiver of Part 69 of the Commission’s rules so that LECs can establish rate elements to recover the costs of implementing FLEX–ANI (a type of switch software) to provide PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 9077 payphone specific coding digits for percall compensation.

Estimated Time Per Response: .5–6 hours. Frequency of Response: On occasion, quarterly and annual reporting requirements and third party disclosure requirement. Total Annual Burden: 3,707 hours. Total Annual Cost: N/A. Privacy Act Impact Assessment: N/A. Needs and Uses: The Commission has revised this information collection. The information collection has been revised as a result of: (1) Certain collections associated with the election of a disaggregation path were one-time in nature and have been eliminated and removed from this burden estimate; and (2) the Commission has created a new FCC Form 525 to collect line count data required by Competitive Eligible Telecommunications Carriers (CETCs) pursuant to this and other OMB control numbers, as well as line count data related to lines provided by CETCs using unbundled network elements (UNEs). The UNE data are necessary for Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) to implement section 54.307 of the Commission’s rules. It is anticipated that the implementation of FCC Form 525 will reduce burdens in several collections by standardizing the information submission format. As collections 3060–0972, 3060–0774 and 3060–0942 are renewed, the information provided in FCC Form 525 will be eliminated from the burden estimates for these collections. The Commission will use the information requirements to determine whether and to what extent rural telecommunications carriers providing the data are eligible to receive universal service support.

The information collected through a carrier’s tariff is used by the Commission to determine whether services offered are just and reasonable as the Act requires. The tariffs and any supporting documentation are examined in order to determine if the services are offered in a just and reasonable manner. Federal Communications Commission. Marlene H.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Control Number: 3060–0185. Title: Section 73.3613, Filing of Contracts. Form Number: Not applicable. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents: Business or other forprofit entities; Not-for-profit institutions. Number of Respondents: 2,300. Estimated Time per Response: 0.25 to 0.5 hours. Frequency of Response: Recordkeeping requirement; On occasion reporting requirement; Third party disclosure requirement. Total Annual Burden: 950 hours. Total Annual Cost: $80,000. Privacy Impact Assessment: No impact(s). Needs and Uses: In June 2003, the Commission adopted changes to 47 CFR 73.3613 and the FCC’s attribution rules. As a result, radio stations located in Arbitron radio markets must now file agreements for the sale of advertising time (i.e., ‘‘Joint Sales Agreements’’ or ‘‘JSAs’’) that result in attribution under the Commission’s multiple ownership rules. 47 CFR 73.3613 requires licensees of television and radio broadcast stations to file with the Commission: (a) Contracts relating to ownership or control and personnel; and (b) time PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 brokerage agreements that result in arrangements being counted under the Commission’s multiple ownership rules. Television stations also must file network affiliation agreements. This section also requires certain contracts to be retained at the station and made available for inspection by the Commission upon request. On June 24, 2004, the Court issued an Opinion and Judgment (‘‘Remand Order’’) in which it upheld certain aspects of the new ownership rules, including the attribution of JSAs among radio stations, while requiring further explanation for certain other aspects of the new rules. The Court stated that its prior stay of the new rules would remain in effect pending the outcome of the remand proceeding. The Commission has not yet responded to the Remand Order, but in the meantime the Commission filed a petition for rehearing requesting that the Court lift the stay partially—i.e., with respect to the radio ownership and JSA attribution rules which the Court’s Remand Order upheld. On September 3, 2004, the Court issued an Order (‘‘Rehearing Order’’) which partially granted the Commission’s petition for rehearing, thus lifting the stay of the revised radio ownership and JSA attribution rules. As a result of the Rehearing Order, the Commission’s revised radio ownership and JSA attribution rules took effect on September 3, 2004. Implementation of the new radio ownership and JSA attribution rules, as required by the Rehearing Order, triggers the requirement for certain licensees to begin filing JSAs.
