ACTION: Notice and request for comments. SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FMCSA announces its plan to submit the Information Collection Request (ICR) described below to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for its review and approval. The FMCSA requests OMB approval to revise and renew a currently-approved ICR entitled, ‘‘Financial Responsibility, Trucking and Freight Forwarding,’’ to reflect an increase in burden hours due to an increase in the estimated number of annual responses. In addition, the title of the ICR is being changed to ‘‘Financial Responsibility—Motor Carriers, Freight Forwarders and Brokers,’’ to better describe its purpose. This ICR sets forth the financial responsibility documentation requirements for motor carriers (property and passenger), freight forwarders and property brokers so they can maintain the minimum levels of financial responsibility required under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) to operate in interstate, foreign or intrastate commerce. On November 24, 2008, FMCSA published a Federal Register notice allowing for a 60-day comment period on the ICR. No comments were received. DATES: Please send your comments by March 9, 2009. OMB must receive your comments by this date in order to act quickly on the ICR. ADDRESSES: Interested persons are invited to submit written comments on the proposed information collection to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and E:\FR\FM\05FEN1.SGM 05FEN1
