SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Maritime Administration (MARAD). Title: MARAD Maritime Operator Survey Concerning Mariner Availability. OMB Control Number: 2133–NEW. Type of Request: New collection. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:57 Jul 02, 2007 Jkt 211001 Affected Public: Vessel operating companies representing different sectors of the U.S. maritime industry. Form(s): MA–1048. Abstract: Part of the stated statutory policy of the Merchant Marine Act, 1936, is to foster the development and maintenance of an adequate U.S.-flag merchant marine manned with trained and efficient citizen personnel. In order to successfully meet this mandate, MARAD must determine whether a current or projected shortage of mariners exists and if there is an operational or business impact on the merchant marine. MARAD believes that a brief preliminary survey is necessary at this time because it has received an abundance of anecdotal information indicating that there is a serious existing and projected mariner shortage in different market sectors. If the preliminary survey indicates that there is a projected shortage that appears to be more than short-term, MARAD will follow-up with a more detailed survey to analyze the shortage and ascertain the best means to address it. Annual Estimated Burden Hours: 33.34 hours (20 minutes per respondent). Addressee: Send comments to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725 17th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention MARAD Desk Officer. Comments Are Invited On: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) 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. A comment to OMB is best assured of having its full effect if OMB receives it within 30 days of publication. (Authority: 49 CFR 1.66.) Issued in Washington, DC on June 25, 2007. Daron T. Threet, Secretary, Maritime Administration. [FR Doc.

    Columbus and Greenville Railway Company (CAGY) has filed a verified 
notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1152 Subpart F--Exempt Abandonments 
and Discontinuances of Service to discontinue service over an out-of-
service line of railroad between milepost 21.2 in West Point, MS, and 
milepost 110.7 in Greenwood, MS, a distance of approximately 89.5 miles 
in Clay, Oktibbeha, Webster, Montgomery, Carroll, and Leflore Counties, 
MS. The line traverses United States Postal Service Zip Codes 39773, 
39741, 39755, 39750, 39752, 39744, 39767, 39747, 38967, 38943, 38947, 
and 38930.
    CAGY has certified that: (1) No local traffic has moved over the 
line for at least 2 years; (2) any overhead traffic on the line can be 
rerouted over other lines; (3) no formal complaint filed by a user of 
rail service on the line (or by a state or local government entity 
acting on behalf of such user) regarding cessation of service over the 
line either is pending with the Surface Transportation Board or with 
any U.S. District Court or has been decided in favor of complainant 
within the 2-year period; and (4) the requirements at 49 CFR 1105.12 
(newspaper publication) and 49 CFR 1152.50(d)(1) (notice to 
governmental agencies) have been met.
    As a condition to this exemption, any employee adversely affected 
by the discontinuance of service shall be protected under Oregon Short 
Line R. Co.--Abandonment--Goshen, 360 I.C.C. 91 (1979). To address 
whether this condition adequately protects affected employees, a 
petition for partial revocation under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) must be filed.
    Provided no formal expression of intent to file an offer of 
financial assistance (OFA) has been received, this exemption will be 
effective on August 3, 2007, unless stayed pending reconsideration.

    \1\ Each OFA must be accompanied by the filing fee, which 
currently is set at $1,300. See 49 CFR 1002.2(f)(25).
    \2\ Because this is a discontinuance proceeding and not an 
abandonment, trail use/rail banking and public use conditions are 
not appropriate. Likewise, no environmental or historical 
documentation is required here under 49 CFR 1105.6(c) and 1105.8(b), 
respectively.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A copy of any petition filed with the Board should be sent to
