The information collected for these grant programs is to include various reporting requirements. A State that receives grant funds must indicate to NHTSA how it intends to obligate and expend grant funds for each fiscal year, and how grant funds were expended and spent each fiscal year. It is important for NHTSA to be notified about these activities so that it can effectively administer the programs and account for the expenditure of funds. To reduce burdens, A State will document these activities largely by making use of mechanisms that have received PRA clearance for other similar highway safety programs. A State will first notify NHTSA of its obligation of funds in accordance with the applicable provisions of SAFETEA–LU by submitting a Program Cost Summary (HS–217), a form with existing PRA clearance, within 30 days of the award notification. A State will also report to NHTSA, as part of its annual Highway Safety Plan under 23 U.S.C. 402, on how it intends to obligate and expend grant funds for each fiscal year. This reporting requirement, however, will not be a significant extra burden for the States because they are already required by statute to submit an annual Highway Safety Plan. Finally, a State that receives grants funds must submit each fiscal year, as part of the Annual Report for its highway safety program pursuant to 23 CFR 1200.33, a report indicating how grant funds were expended and identifying the programs carried out with the grant funds. Again, this reporting requirement will not be a significant extra burden for the States because they are already required by regulation to submit an Annual Report for their highway safety program. In addition, for the Section 2011 program, this report is required by provisions of SAFETEA–LU. Estimated Annual Burden: 5130. Estimated Number of Respondents: 52 (fifty States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico) for Child Safety and Child Booster Seat Incentive Grants; 56 (fifty States, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands) for Grant Program to Prohibit Racial Profiling; and 57 (fifty States, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the Bureau of Indian Affairs) for the State Traffic Safety Information System Improvements.

Brown’s operating revenues for the year 2005 were in excess of $15 million. RCXLLC and RCXCORP propose to continue to control carriers RMI and JLS, each of which holds, in addition to its federally issued operating authority, intrastate operating authorities. RMI holds authorities issued by the states of Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. JLS holds authorities issued by the states of Alabama, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. Under 49 U.S.C. 14303(b), the Board must approve and authorize a transaction found to be consistent with the public interest, taking into consideration at least: (1) The effect of the transaction on the adequacy of transportation to the public; (2) the total fixed charges that result; and (3) the interest of affected carrier employees.

company that holds all of the stock of and controls RCXCORP, also a 
Delaware corporation. In turn, RCXCORP owns all of the stock of and 
controls RMI and JLS.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ In August 2005, RCXCORP acquired all of the stock of RMI and 
JLS. However, according to applicants, they were unaware at that 
time that such transactions required Board authority under 49 U.S.C. 
14303(a)(4). RCXCORP and RCXLLC, through control of RCXCORP, now 
seek such approval. Accordingly, RCXCORP has been added as an 
applicant in this proceeding.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In addition to its federally issued operating authority, Brown's 
also holds authorities issued by the states of California, Colorado, 
Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming. Brown's operating 
revenues for the year 2005 were in excess of $15 million. RCXLLC and 
RCXCORP propose to continue to control carriers RMI and JLS, each of 
which holds, in addition to its federally issued operating authority, 
intrastate operating authorities. RMI holds authorities issued by the 
states of Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. JLS holds authorities issued by 
the states of Alabama, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, New 
Mexico, and Oklahoma.
    Under 49 U.S.C. 14303(b), the Board must approve and authorize a 
transaction found to be consistent with the public interest, taking 
into consideration at least: (1) The effect of the transaction on the 
adequacy of transportation to the public; (2) the total fixed charges 
that result; and (3) the interest of affected carrier employees.
    Applicants have submitted information, as required by 49 CFR 
1182.2, including the information to demonstrate that the proposed 
transactions are consistent with the public interest under 49 U.S.C.

14303(b). Applicants state that the proposed transactions will have no 
impact on the adequacy of transportation services available to the

on total fixed charges, and that the interest of employees of the 
carriers to be acquired will not be adversely impacted. Additional 
information, including a copy of the application, may be obtained from 
applicants' representatives.
    On the basis of the application, we find that the proposed 
acquisitions of control are consistent with the public interest and 
should be authorized. If any opposing comments are timely filed, this 
finding will be deemed vacated, and unless a final decision can be made 
on the record as developed, a procedural schedule will be adopted to 
reconsider the application. See 49 CFR 1182.6(c). If no opposing
