FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Levern McElveen, Safety Team Leader, Office of Safety and Security, (202) 366– 1651, or e-mail: Levern.McElveen@dot.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Interested parties are invited to send comments regarding any aspect of this information collection, including: (1) The necessity and utility of the information collection for the proper performance of the functions of the FTA; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the collected information; and (4) ways to minimize the collection burden without reducing the quality of the collected information. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval of this information collection. Title: 49 U.S.C. Section 5330—Rail Fixed Guideway Systems, State Safety Oversight (OMB Number: 2132–0558). Background: 49 U.S.C. Section 5330 requires States to designate a State Safety Oversight (SSO) agency to oversee the safety and security of each rail transit agency within the State’s jurisdiction. To comply with Section 5330, SSO agencies must develop program standards which meet FTA’s minimum requirements. In the Program Standard, which must be approved by FTA, each SSO agency must require each rail transit agency in the State’s jurisdiction to prepare and implement a System Safety Program Plan (SSPP) and System Security Plan (SSP). The SSO agency also requires the rail transit agencies in its jurisdiction to conduct specific activities, such as accident investigation, implementation of a hazard management program, and the management of an internal safety and security audit process. SSO agencies review and approve the SSPPs and SSPs of the rail transit agencies. Once every three years, States conduct an on-site review of the rail transit agencies in their jurisdictions to assess SSPP/SSP VerDate Aug<31>2005 01:51 Jun 21, 2008 Jkt 214001 implementation and to determine whether these plans are effective and if they need to be updated. SSO agencies develop final reports documenting the findings from these on-site reviews and require corrective actions. SSO agencies also review and approve accident investigation reports, participate in the rail transit agency’s hazard management program, and oversee implementation of the rail transit agency’s internal safety and security audit process. SSO agencies review and approve corrective action plans and track and monitor rail transit agency activities to implement them. Collection of this information enables each SSO agency to monitor each rail transit agency’s implementation of the State’s requirements as specified in the Program Standard approved by FTA. Without this information, States would not be able to oversee the rail transit agencies in their jurisdictions. Recent recommendations from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and the Government Accountability Office (GAO) have encouraged States and rail transit agencies to devote additional resources to these safety activities and safety oversight in general. SSO agencies also submit an annual certification to FTA that the State is in compliance with Section 5330 and an annual report documenting the State’s safety and security oversight activities. FTA uses the annual information submitted by the States to monitor implementation of the program. If a State fails to comply with Section 5330, FTA may withhold up to five percent of the funds appropriated for use in a State or urbanized area in the State under section 5307. The information submitted by the States ensures FTA’s compliance with applicable federal laws, OMB Circular A–102, and 49 CFR Part 18, ‘‘Uniform Administrative Requirements for Grants and Cooperative Agreements with State and Local Governments.’’ Respondents: State and local government agencies. Estimated Annual Burden on Respondents: Annually, each designated SSO agency devotes approximately 767 hours to information collection activities for each of the rail transit agencies in the State’s jurisdiction. Combined, the SSO agencies spend approximately 33,770 hours on information collection activities each year, or roughly half of the total level of effort devoted to implement Section 5330 requirements in a given year. The local governments affected by Section 5330, including the rail transit agencies, spend an annual total of 108,623 hours on information collection activities to PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 35437 support implementation of Section 5330, or approximately 2,469 hours each. This amount also equals approximately half of the total level of effort devoted to implement Section 5330 requirements in a given year. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 142,393 hours. Frequency: Annual. Issued: June 16, 2008. Ann M. Linnertz, Associate Administrator for Administration. [FR Doc.
