However, since that time OMB has determined that our proposed revisions were non-substantive in nature and has approved them. We are therefore now listing this collection as an extension. A list of the nonsubstantive changes SSA made are available if the public requests them. (2) The number of respondents completing the i1020 is greater and the number of respondents using the paper SSA–1020 is less than the numbers reported in the 60-day Federal Register Notice for this collection. The reason for this change is that SSA received updated data on the percentage of respondents using the i1020 since the 60-day Federal Register Notice published. 6.

Christine Reed, P.E., Deputy Director of Highways, Region 4 Engineer, District 7, Illinois Department of Transportation, 400 W. Wabash, Effingham, Illinois 62401, Phone: (217) 342–8201. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA, in cooperation with the Illinois Department of Transportation, will prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) on a proposal to improve US Route 51 located in the Illinois counties of Christian, Shelby, Fayette, Marion, Clinton, Jefferson, and Washington. The proposed improvement would involve the expansion of the existing 70-mile roadway facility between CR 900 N (South of Pana) to CR 2150 N (East of Irvington). Improvements to the corridor are considered necessary due to increases in traffic volumes, operational issues, and State economic initiatives. Alternatives that may be considered include (1) taking no action; (2) combining the existing two-lane highway with widening to four lanes on existing and/ or new location; and (3) constructing a four-lane highway on new location. Improvements to US 51 have the potential to affect agricultural, biological, historical, and natural resources within the corridor. The corridor contains moderately prime farmland in rural areas. A nature preserve exists along the abandoned railroad right-of-way north of Ramsey and the palustrine wetlands of the Kaskaskia River basin area may be habitat for plant and animal species listed by State and Federal endangered and threatened wildlife and plants programs. The Kaskaskia drainage basin has potential to contain prehistoric archaeological sites. Historical resources located along US 51 include the Vandalia Statehouse and the First Presbyterian church in Vandalia. Hazardous waste sites exist within the corridor, including the Sandoval zinc smelter site and several tank farms east of US 51 near Patoka. In the urban limits of the corridor, residential areas adjacent to US 51 may be affected. Letters describing the proposed action and soliciting comments will be sent to appropriate Federal, State, and local agencies. A public scoping meeting is planned for January 2008 and agency scoping meeting is planned for February 2008. Due to the length of the corridor, public meetings will be held in each region; north, central, and south. The first public meetings will take place in January 2008. Illinois’ Context Sensitive Solutions (CSS) process will be used for public involvement. The project Web PO 00000 Frm 00084 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 67779 site is www.US51-IDOT.com. In addition to the public meetings, a public hearing and comment period will be held following the release of the Draft EIS. Public notice will be given for the time and place of the public meetings and hearing. To ensure that the full range of issues related to this proposed action are addressed and all significant issues identified, comments, and suggestions are invited from all interested parties. Comments or questions concerning this proposed action and the EIS should be directed to the FHWA at the address provided above.

ACTION: Notice of application for exemption; request for comments. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The FMCSA announces that it has received from Verigo, Incorporated (Verigo) an application for an exemption from the signature requirement for a driver on the record of duty status (RODS). Verigo’s application is being made on behalf of all drivers and carriers operating commercial motor vehicles in the U.S. and using the Verigo Wireless Logbook. The exemption would allow a signature entered on an electronic ‘‘signature pad’’ to be the functional equivalent of a handwritten signature on the RODS. Verigo states that this will allow the trucking industry to reduce administrative costs and increase productivity by providing a simple and effective alternative to paper RODS. The FMCSA requests public comment on Verigo’s application for exemption. DATES: Comments must be received on or before December 31, 2007. E:\FR\FM\30NON1.SGM 30NON1

steps have been taken to mitigate any law enforcement concerns. The 
Department of State, after consultation with other agencies, has 
determined that ROTHCO has taken appropriate steps to address the 
causes of the violations and to mitigate any law enforcement concerns.
