Form Number: HS–217 Abstract: The Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:54 May 11, 2006 Jkt 208001 Act—A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA– LU), Public Law 109–59, authorizes several grant programs covering fiscal years (FY) 2006–2009, to be administered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Section 1906 authorizes a grant program for States that enact and enforce a law that prohibits the use of racial profiling in the enforcement of traffic laws on Federal-aid highways. To be eligible for a grant, a State must have such a law and maintain and allow public inspection of statistical information for each motor vehicle stop in the state showing the race and ethnicity of the driver and any passengers. A State may also receive a grant if it provides assurances satisfactory to the Secretary of Transportation that the State is undertaking activities that will lead to compliance with the requirements of this section. Section 2006 authorizes a grant program to support the development and implementation of State traffic safety information systems. The program provides grants to eligible States to support the development of effective programs to improve State traffic safety data and the compatibility and interoperability of State data systems with national and State data systems. Section 2011 authorizes a grant program for child safety seats and child booster seats. The program provides grant funds to States that enforce a law requiring that all children under the age of 8 be secured in a child restraint meeting applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00127 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 27787 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: 5,130. 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. ADDRESSES: Send comments, within 30 days, to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725 17th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention NHTSA Desk Officer. The Comments are invited on: Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Department, including whether the information will have practical utility; the accuracy of the Department’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

    Abstract: The Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation 
Equity Act--A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU), Public Law 109-59, 
authorizes several grant programs covering fiscal years (FY) 2006-2009, 
to be administered by the National Highway Traffic Safety 
Administration (NHTSA).
    Section 1906 authorizes a grant program for States that enact and 
enforce a law that prohibits the use of racial profiling in the 
enforcement of traffic laws on Federal-aid highways. To be eligible for 
a grant, a State must have such a law and maintain and allow public 
inspection of statistical information for each motor vehicle stop in 
the state showing the race and ethnicity of the driver and any 
passengers. A State may also receive a grant if it provides assurances 
satisfactory to the Secretary of Transportation that the State is 
undertaking activities that will lead to compliance with the 
requirements of this section.
    Section 2006 authorizes a grant program to support the development 
and implementation of State traffic safety information systems. The 
program provides grants to eligible States to support the development 
of effective programs to improve State traffic safety data and the 
compatibility and interoperability of State data systems with national 
and State data systems.
    Section 2011 authorizes a grant program for child safety seats and 
child booster seats. The program provides grant funds to States that 
enforce a law requiring that all children under the age of 8 be secured 
in a child restraint meeting applicable Federal motor vehicle safety 
standards.
    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: 5,130.
    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.

ADDRESSES: Send comments, within 30 days, to the Office of Information 
and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725 17th 
Street, NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention NHTSA Desk Officer.
    The Comments are invited on: Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the Department, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; the accuracy of the Department's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility 
and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize 
the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including
