Explain your views as clearly as possible and provide specific examples. 2. Describe any assumptions that you used. 3. Provide copies of any technical information and/or data you used that support your views. 4. If you estimate potential burden or costs, explain how you arrived at the estimate that you provide. 5.

Affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are individual owners of light duty passenger cars and trucks. Title: Determine Percentage of High Evaporative Emission Vehicles in Onroad Fleet of Motor Vehicle Passenger Cars and Light Trucks ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 2292.01, OMB Control No. 2060–NEW. ICR status: This ICR is for a new information collection activity. An Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control E:\FR\FM\14FEN1.SGM 14FEN1 rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 31 / Thursday, February 14, 2008 / Notices number. The OMB control numbers for EPA’s regulations in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, are displayed either by publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate the fractions of passenger cars and light trucks in the on-road fleet that have atypically high emissions of evaporative hydrocarbons. In past and current programs, vehicles with high evaporative emissions have been measured in the laboratory. In some cases, high emissions represented the state of the vehicle in use, and in others, high emissions were induced for experimental purposes. However, a critical data gap in the utilization of these data is reasonably accurate estimates for the prevalence of high emitting vehicles in the fleet. In addressing this need, the results of this study will be used to improve the accuracy of evaporative emission inventories for EPA’s planning and regulations as well as for States in analyses supporting compliance with the Clean Air Act. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 1.0 hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements which have subsequently changed; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information. The ICR provides a detailed explanation of the Agency’s estimate, which is only briefly summarized here: Estimated total number of potential respondents: 4350. Frequency of response: One time for 95%, twice for 5%. Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 2.88. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:49 Feb 13, 2008 Jkt 214001 Estimated total annual burden hours: 3785. Estimated total annual costs: $111,934. This includes an estimated burden cost of $111,934 and an estimated cost of $0 for capital investment or maintenance and operational costs. What is the next step in the process for this ICR? EPA will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as appropriate. The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and approval pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.12. At that time, EPA will issue another Federal Register notice pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.5(a)(1)(iv) to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB. If you have any questions about this ICR or the approval process, please contact the technical person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. Dated: February 7, 2008.

    ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 2292.01, OMB Control No. 2060-NEW.
    ICR status: This ICR is for a new information collection activity. 
An Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to 
respond to, a collection of information, unless it displays a currently 
valid OMB control

number. The OMB control numbers for EPA's regulations in title 40 of 
the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are 
listed in 40 CFR part 9, are displayed either by publication in the 
Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such as on the related 
collection instrument or form, if applicable. The display of OMB 
control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR 
part 9.
    Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate the fractions 
of passenger cars and light trucks in the on-road fleet that have 
atypically high emissions of evaporative hydrocarbons. In past and 
current programs, vehicles with high evaporative emissions have been 
measured in the laboratory. In some cases, high emissions represented 
the state of the vehicle in use, and in others, high emissions were 
induced for experimental purposes. However, a critical data gap in the 
utilization of these data is reasonably accurate estimates for the 
prevalence of high emitting vehicles in the fleet. In addressing this 
need, the results of this study will be used to improve the accuracy of 
evaporative emission inventories for EPA's planning and regulations as 
well as for States in analyses supporting compliance with the Clean Air 
Act.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 1.0 
hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial 
resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or 
disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This 
includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, 
install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of 
collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and 
maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; 
adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable 
instructions and requirements which have subsequently changed; train 
personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search 
data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and 
transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
    The ICR provides a detailed explanation of the Agency's estimate, 
which is only briefly summarized here:
    Estimated total number of potential respondents: 4350.
    Frequency of response: One time for 95%, twice for 5%.
    Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 
2.88.
    Estimated total annual burden hours: 3785.
    Estimated total annual costs: $111,934. This includes an estimated 
burden cost of $111,934 and an estimated cost of $0 for capital 
investment or maintenance and operational costs.

What is the next step in the process for this ICR?

    EPA will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as 
appropriate. The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for 
review and approval pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.12. At that time, EPA will 
issue another Federal Register notice pursuant to 5 CFR 
1320.5(a)(1)(iv) to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the 
opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB. If you have any 
questions about this ICR or the approval process, please contact the 
technical person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.
