The Act’s legislative history indicates that one of its statutory goals is to prevent candidates for Federal political office from incurring large amounts of unsecured debt with regulated transportation companies (e.g. airlines). This information collection allows the Department to monitor and disclose the amount of unsecured credit extended by airlines to candidates for Federal office. All certificated air carriers are required to submit this information. The Confidential Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act of 2002 (44 U.S.C. 3501 note), requires a statistical agency to clearly identify information it collects for non-statistical purposes. BTS hereby notifies the respondents and the public that BTS uses the information it collects under this OMB approval for non-statistical purposes including, but not limited to, publication of both Respondent’s identity and its data, submission of the information to agencies outside BTS for review, analysis and possible use in regulatory and other administrative matters. ADDRESSES: Send comments to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 715–17th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention RITA Desk Officer. Comments are invited on whether the proposed retention of records is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Department of Transportation.

Earlier, a Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period was published on February 3, 2006 (71 FR 5903). The agency did not receive any comments to its previous notice.

Comments: Comments should be sent to OMB at the address that appears below and should identify the associated OMB Approval Number 2138–0006 and Docket RITA–2005– 23342. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Approval No.: 2138–0006. Title: Preservation of Air Carrier Records—14 CFR Part 249 . Form No.: None. Type Of Review: Extension of a currently approved recordkeeping requirement. Respondents: Certificated air carriers and charter operators. Number of Respondents: 120 certificated air carriers. 300 charter operators. Estimated Time per Response: 3 hours per certificated air carrier. 1 hour per charter operator. Total Annual Burden: 660 hours. Needs and Uses: Part 249 requires the retention of records such as: General and subsidiary ledgers, journals and journal vouchers, voucher distribution registers, accounts receivable and payable journals and legers, subsidy records documenting underlying financial and statistical reports to DOT, funds reports, consumer records, sales reports, auditors’ and flight coupons, air waybills, etc. Depending on the nature of the document, the carrier may be required to retain the document for a period of 30 days to 3 years. Public charter operators and overseas military personnel charter operators must retain documents which evidence or reflect deposits made by each charter participant and commissions received by, paid to, or deducted by travel agents, and all statements, invoices, bills and receipts from suppliers or furnishers of goods and services in connection with the tour or charter. These records are PO 00000 Frm 00086 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 25645 retained for 6 months after completion of the charter program. Not only is it imperative that carriers and charter operators retain source documentation, but it is critical that we ensure that DOT has access to these records. Given DOT’s established information needs for such reports, the underlying support documentation must be retained for a reasonable period of time. Absent the retention requirements, the support for such reports may or may not exist for audit/validation purposes and the relevance and usefulness of the carrier submissions would be impaired, since the data could not be verified to the source on a test basis.
