SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 1. Title: A Guide to Reporting Highway Statistics. OMB Control Number: 2125–0032 (Expiration Date: March 31, 2006). Abstract: A Guide to Reporting Highway Statistics provides for the collection of information by describing policies and procedures for assembling informational data from the existing files of State agencies. The data includes motor-vehicle registration and fees, motor-fuel use and taxation, driver licensing, and highway taxation and finance. Federal, State, and local governments use the data for transportation policy discussions and decisions. Motor-fuel data are used in attributing receipts to the Highway Trust Fund and subsequently in the apportionment formulae that are used to distribute Federal-Aid Highway Funds. The data are published annually in the FHWA’s Highway Statistics. Information from Highway Statistics is used in the joint FHWA and Federal Transit Administration required biennial report to Congress, The Status of the Nation’s Highways, Bridges, and Transit: Conditions and Performance Report to Congress, which contrasts present status to future investment needs. Respondents: State and local governments of the 50 States, the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Estimated Average Burden Per Response: The estimated average reporting burden per response for the annual collection and processing of the data is 825 hours for each of the States (including local governments), the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Estimated Total Annual Burden: The estimated total annual burden for all respondents is 42, 900 hours.

OMB Control Number: 2125–0028 (Expiration Date: April 30, 2006). Abstract: The HPMS data that is collected is used for management decisions that affect transportation, including estimates of the Nation’s future highway needs and assessments of highway system performance. The information is used by the FHWA to develop and implement legislation and by State and Federal transportation officials to adequately plan, design, and administer effective, safe, and efficient transportation systems. This data is essential to the FHWA and Congress in evaluating the effectiveness of the Federal-aid highway program. The HPMS also provides miles, lane-miles and travel components of the FederalAid Highway Fund apportionment formulae. The data that is required by the HPMS is continually reassessed and streamlined by the FHWA. Respondents: State governments of the 50 States, the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Estimated Average Burden per Response: The estimated average burden per response for the annual collection and processing of the HPMS data is 1,440 hours for each State, the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Estimated Total Annual Burden: The estimated total annual burden for all respondents is 74,880 hours.

Office hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. Public Comments Invited You are asked to comment on any aspect of these information collections, including: (1) Whether the proposed collections are necessary for the FHWA’s performance; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burdens; (3) ways for the FHWA to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the collected information; and (4) ways that the burdens could be minimized, including use of electronic technology, without reducing the quality of the collected E:\FR\FM\28NON1.SGM 28NON1
