SUMMARY: The Federal Communications Commission, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork burden, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on the following information collection(s), as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), Public Law 104–13. An agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a current valid control number. No person shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information subject to the PRA that does not display a valid control number. Comments are requested concerning: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Commission’s burden estimate; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. DATES: Written PRA comments should be submitted on or before October 15, 2007. If you anticipate that you will be submitting comments, but find it difficult to do so within the period of time allowed by this notice, you should advise the contact listed below as soon as possible.

Obligation To Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. Total Annual Burden: 37,500 hours. Total Annual Cost: None. Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: There is no need for confidentiality, except for personally identifiable information (PII) individuals may submit, which is covered by a system of records notice (SORN), FCC/OMD–9, ‘‘Commission Registration System (CORES).’’ Privacy Impact Assessment: No, the FCC will conduct a Privacy Impact Assessment when it revises the information system(s) covered by FCC/ OMD–9, ‘‘Commission Registration System (CORES),’’ SORN.

The Commission created a streamlined electronic form, FCC Form 159–E, to associate a mailed or faxed payment with regulatory fees, which are filed on-line. Pertinent information is taken directly from the regulatory fee electronic filing system (Fee Filer) and populated on the FCC Form 159–E, which can be printed by the filer.

The Commission uses this information to apply credit for the remittance against all regulatory fees within the associated electronic submission.

The FCC bills telecommunications licensees and permittees using the FCC Form 159–W as the invoice. The FCC developed FCC Form 159–W to provide a convenient format for these telecommunications licensees and permittees to verify the information that is extracted from the interstate revenue information (which are already ‘‘populated’’ on this form) and to verify the simple calculation of the fee amount that is due, correcting any inaccuracies as necessary. The FCC uses this form to bill the telecommunications licensee or permittee the amount of its regulatory fee. The FCC is making minor revisions to FCC Form 159–W to provide a clearer format.
