Chapter 35) requires that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) provide interested Federal agencies and the public an early opportunity to comment on information collection requests. OMB may amend or waive the requirement for public consultation to the extent that public participation in the approval process would defeat the purpose of the information collection, violate State or Federal law, or substantially interfere with any agency’s ability to perform its statutory obligations. The IC Clearance Official, Regulatory Information Management Services, Office of Management, publishes that notice containing proposed information collection requests prior to submission of these requests to OMB. Each proposed information collection, grouped by office, contains the following: (1) Type of review requested, e.g. new, revision, extension, existing or reinstatement; (2) title; (3) summary of the collection; (4) description of the need for, and proposed use of, the information; (5) respondents and frequency of collection; and (6) Reporting and/or Recordkeeping burden. OMB invites public comment. The Department of Education is especially interested in public comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is this collection necessary to the proper functions of the Department; (2) will this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the Department enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the Department minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use of information technology.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 59097 Description The information collection submitted for OMB review contains the following: 1. Collection of Information: FERC 592 ‘‘Marketing Affiliates of Interstate Pipelines’’. 2. Sponsor: Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. 3. Control No.: 1902–0157. The Commission is now requesting that OMB approve and extend the expiration date for an additional three years with no changes to the existing collection. The information filed with the Commission is mandatory. 4. Necessity of the Collection of Information: Submission of the information is necessary for the Commission to carry out its responsibilities in implementing the Statutory provisions of sections 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 14, 16, and 20 of the Natural Gas Act (NGA) 15 U.S.C. 717–717w and Title II, section 311 and sections 501 and 504 of the Natural Gas Policy Act (Pub. L. 95–621). The FERC–592 requirements apply to ‘‘Transmission Providers’’ who are defined as any interstate natural gas pipeline that transports gas for others, subject to the Natural Gas Act (i.e., pursuant to subpart A of part 157 or subparts B or G of part 284). See 18 CFR 358.3(a)(1) and (2). A Transmission Provider does not include a natural gas storage provider authorized to charge market-based rates that is not interconnected with the jurisdictional facilities of any affiliated interstate natural gas pipeline, has no exclusive franchise area, no captive ratepayers or no market power, 18 CFR 358.3(a)(3). Initially, FERC–592 was adopted when the Commission issued the Standards of Conduct in Order No. 497, 53 FR 22161, June 14, 1988. The Standards of Conduct prevent Transmission Providers from discriminating against non-affiliated shippers or from granting undue preferences to their marketing affiliates. In response to growing competition in the natural gas marketplace and to further ensure that it could monitor transactions for the exercise of market power, the Commission revised its reporting requirements in Order No. 637, 65 FR 10219, on February 25, 2000. The Commission required pipelines to post more transmission information on their Internet websites to improve transparency of transmission information. With the revisions in Order No. 637, the Commission also eliminated many of the requirements of the original FERC–592s. First the Commission eliminated the requirement to submit E:\FR\FM\06OCN1.SGM 06OCN1
