Background: The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), FHWA, has contracted with the Gallup Organization to conduct a survey of professionals associated with transportation and resource agencies in order to gather their views about the workings of the environmental review process for transportation projects and how the process can become more efficient. The purpose of the survey is to: (1) Collect the responses of agency professionals to questions about their involvement in conducting the decision-making processes mandated by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and other resource protection laws in order to develop benchmark performance measures; and (2) identify where the performance of the process might be improved by the application of techniques for streamlining. This is a survey conducted of only local, state, and federal officials who work with the NEPA process. Respondents: Approximately 2,000 professionals/officials from transportation and natural resource agencies. Frequency: This is the third time this survey has been conducted over a period of seven years. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: The FHWA estimates that each respondent will complete the survey in approximately 15 minutes. Respondents VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:57 Mar 27, 2008 Jkt 214001 will have the option of answering the survey’s questions either over the telephone or online. With a potential total of 2,000 survey respondents, an estimated 500 burden hours are expected for this project. Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed collection is necessary for the FHWA’s performance; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways for the FHWA to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the collected information; and (4) ways that the burden could be minimized, including the use of electronic technology, without reducing the quality of the collected information.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, before an agency submits a proposed collection of information to OMB for approval, it must first publish a document in the Federal Register providing a 60-day comment period and otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of information. The OMB has promulgated regulations describing what must be included in such a document. Under OMB’s regulation, see 5 CFR 1320.8(d), an agency must ask for public comment on the following: (i) 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; (ii) The accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (iii) How to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and PO 00000 Frm 00120 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (iv) How to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g. permitting electronic submission of responses In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for public comments on the following collection of information: Title: Defect and Noncompliance Reporting and Notification. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved information collection. OMB Control Number: 2127–0004. Affected Public: Businesses or individuals. Abstract: This notice requests comment on NHTSA’s proposed revision to approved collection of information OMB No. 2127–0004. Broadly speaking, this collection covers the information collection requirements found within various statutory sections in the Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966 (Act), 49 U.S.C. 30101, et seq., that address and require manufacturer notifications to NHTSA of safety-related defects and failures to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) in motor vehicles and motor vehicle equipment, as well as the provision of particular information related to the ensuing owner and dealers notifications and free remedy campaigns that follow those notifications. The sections of the Act imposing these requirements include 49 U.S.C. 30118, 30119, 30120, and 30166. Many of these requirements are implemented through, and addressed with more specificity in, 49 CFR Part 573, Defect and Noncompliance Responsibility and Reports (Part 573) and 49 CFR 577, Defect and Noncompliance Notification. For ease of reference and comment, we have broken the information collection requirements that OMB No. 2127–0004 covers into three categories. The first two categories summarize requirements already included in OMB No. 2127–0004; the first discussing requirements of defect and noncompliance reporting and notifications generally, and the second discussing additional requirements that pertain specifically to tire recalls and the proper disposal of tires. The third category summarizes our proposal to include another collection requirement related to tire recall campaigns, but in the past treated separately and given a different OMB information collection approval number (2127–0610).
