MMRR has certified that: (1) No local traffic has moved over the line for at least 2 years; (2) any overhead traffic on the line can be rerouted over other lines; (3) no formal complaint filed by a user of rail service on the line (or by a state or local government entity acting on behalf of such user) regarding cessation of service over the line either is pending with the Surface Transportation Board (Board) or with any U.S. District Court or has been decided in favor of complainant within the 2-year period; and (4) the requirements at 49 CFR 1105.7 (environmental reports), 49 CFR 1105.8 (historic reports), 49 CFR 1105.11 (transmittal letter), 49 CFR 1105.12 (newspaper publication), and 49 CFR 1152.50(d)(1) (notice to governmental agencies) have been met. As a condition to this exemption, any employee adversely affected by the abandonment shall be protected under Oregon Short Line R. Co.— Abandonment—Goshen, 360 I.C.C. 91 (1979). To address whether this condition adequately protects affected employees, a petition for partial revocation under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) must be filed. Provided no formal expression of intent to file an offer of financial assistance (OFA) has been received, this exemption will be effective on May 20, 2009, unless stayed pending reconsideration. Petitions to stay that do not involve environmental issues,2 formal expressions of intent to file an OFA under 49 CFR 1152.27(c)(2),3 and trail use/rail banking requests under 49 CFR 1152.29 must be filed by April 30, 2009. Petitions to reopen or requests for public use conditions under 49 CFR 1152.28 must be filed by May 11, 2009, 1 The Board previously exempted the abandonment of the 3.35-mile line in Mid-Michigan Railroad, Inc.—Abandonment Exemption—in Muskegon County, MI, STB Docket No. AB–364 (Sub-No. 13X) (STB served Dec. 10, 2007). However, the authority to abandon the line expired because MMRR did not file its notice of consummation by the December 10, 2008 deadline. In a decision served on February 25, 2009, MMRR was advised that, should it wish to abandon the line, it must seek appropriate Board authority with a new filing. 2 The Board will grant a stay if an informed decision on environmental issues (whether raised by a party or by the Board’s Section of Environmental Analysis (SEA) in its independent investigation) cannot be made before the exemption’s effective date. See Exemption of Outof-Service Rail Lines, 5 I.C.C.2d 377 (1989). Any request for a stay should be filed as soon as possible so that the Board may take appropriate action before the exemption’s effective date. 3 Each OFA must be accompanied by the filing fee, which currently is set at $1,500. See 49 CFR 1002.2(f)(25). VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:02 Apr 17, 2009 Jkt 217001 with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street, SW., Washington, DC 20423–0001. A copy of any petition filed with the Board should be sent to MMRR’s representative: Louis E. Gitomer, Law Offices of Louis E. Gitomer, 600 Baltimore Avenue, Suite 301, Towson, MD 21204. If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab initio. MMRR has filed a combined environmental report and historic report which addresses the effects, if any, of the abandonment on the environment and historic resources. SEA will issue an environmental assessment (EA) by April 24, 2009. Interested persons may obtain a copy of the EA by writing to SEA (Room 1100, Surface Transportation Board, Washington, DC 20423–0001) or by calling SEA, at (202) 245–0305. [Assistance for the hearing impaired is available through the Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) at 1–800–877–8339.] Comments on environmental and historic preservation matters must be filed within 15 days after the EA becomes available to the public. Environmental, historic preservation, public use, or trail use/rail banking conditions will be imposed, where appropriate, in a subsequent decision. Pursuant to the provisions of 49 CFR 1152.29(e)(2), MMRR shall file a notice of consummation with the Board to signify that it has exercised the authority granted and fully abandoned the line. If consummation has not been effected by MMRR’s filing of a notice of consummation by April 20, 2010, and there are no legal or regulatory barriers to consummation, the authority to abandon will automatically expire. Board decisions and notices are available on our Web site at http:// www.stb.dot.gov. Decided: April 10, 2009. By the Board, Joseph H. Dettmar, Acting Director, Office of Proceedings. Jeffrey Herzig, Clearance Clerk. [FR Doc.

ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), this notice announces that the Information Collection Request (ICR) abstracted below has been forwarded to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and comment. The ICR describes the nature of the information collections and their expected burden. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period was published on January 16, 2009 (74 FR 3134). The agency received no comments. This is a request for an extension of an existing collection. DATES: Comments must be submitted on or before May 20, 2009. ADDRESSES: Send comments, within 30 days, to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725 17th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention NHTSA Desk Officer.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Title: 49 CFR 575—Consumer Information Regulations (sections 103 and 105). OMB Control Number: 2127–0049. Form Number: None. Affected Public: Vehicle manufacturers. Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three years from approval date. Abstract: NHTSA must ensure that motor vehicle manufacturers comply with 49 CFR Part 575, Consumer Information Regulation part 575.103 Truck-camper loading and Part 575.105 Utility Vehicles. Part 575.103, requires that manufacturers of light trucks that are capable of accommodating slide-in campers provide information on the cargo weight rating and the longitudinal limits within which the center of gravity for the cargo weight rating should be E:\FR\FM\20APN1.SGM 20APN1 rmajette on PRODPC74 with NOTICES 18022 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 74 / Monday, April 20, 2009 / Notices located. Part 575.105, requires that manufacturers of utility vehicles affix a sticker in a prominent location alerting drivers that the particular handling and maneuvering characteristics of utility vehicles require special driving practices when these vehicles are operated. Estimated Annual Burden: 300 hours. Number of Respondents: 15. Based on prior years’ manufacturer submissions, the agency estimates that 15 responses will be submitted annually. Currently 12 light truck manufacturers comply with 49 CFR part 575. These manufacturers file one response annually and submit an additional response when they introduce a new model. Changes are rarely filed with the agency, but we estimate that three manufacturers will alter their information because of model changes. The light truck manufacturers gather only pre-existing data for the purposes of this regulation. Based on previous years’ manufacturer information, the agency estimates that light truck manufacturers use a total of 20 hours. Specifically, manufacturers use 9 hours to gather and arrange the data in its proper format, 4 hours to distribute the information to its dealerships and attach labels to light trucks that are capable of accommodating slide-in campers, and 7 hours to print the labels and utility vehicle information in the owner’s manual or a separate document included with the owner’s manual. The estimated annual burden hour is 300 hours. This number reflects the total responses (15) times the total hours (20). Prior years’ manufacturer information indicates that it takes an average of $35.00 per hour for professional and clerical staff to gather data, distribute and print material. Therefore, the agency estimates that the cost associated with the burden hours is $10,500 ($35.00 per hour x 300 burden hours). Estimated Annual Cost: $2,262,631. The annual cost is based on light truck production. In model year 2008, light truck manufacturers produced about 6,464,659 units. By assuming that all light truck manufacturers (both large and small volume manufacturers) incur the same cost, the total annual cost to comply with statutory requirements, § 575.103 and § 575.105 is $2,262,631 (or $0.35 each unit). Comments Are Invited On: • Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Department, including whether the information will have practical utility. VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:02 Apr 17, 2009 Jkt 217001 • Whether the Department’s estimate for the burden of the proposed information collection is accurate. • Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

    Title: 49 CFR 575--Consumer Information Regulations (sections 103 
and 105).
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0049.
    Form Number: None.
    Affected Public: Vehicle manufacturers.
    Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three years from approval 
date.
    Abstract: NHTSA must ensure that motor vehicle manufacturers comply 
with 49 CFR Part 575, Consumer Information Regulation part 575.103 
Truck-camper loading and Part 575.105 Utility Vehicles. Part 575.103, 
requires that manufacturers of light trucks that are capable of 
accommodating slide-in campers provide information on the cargo weight 
rating and the longitudinal limits within which the center of gravity 
for the cargo weight rating should be

located. Part 575.105, requires that manufacturers of utility vehicles 
affix a sticker in a prominent location alerting drivers that the 
particular handling and maneuvering characteristics of utility vehicles 
require special driving practices when these vehicles are operated.
    Estimated Annual Burden: 300 hours.
    Number of Respondents: 15.
    Based on prior years' manufacturer submissions, the agency 
estimates that 15 responses will be submitted annually. Currently 12 
light truck manufacturers comply with 49 CFR part 575. These 
manufacturers file one response annually and submit an additional 
response when they introduce a new model. Changes are rarely filed with 
the agency, but we estimate that three manufacturers will alter their 
information because of model changes. The light truck manufacturers 
gather only pre-existing data for the purposes of this regulation. 
Based on previous years' manufacturer information, the agency estimates 
that light truck manufacturers use a total of 20 hours. Specifically, 
manufacturers use 9 hours to gather and arrange the data in its proper 
format, 4 hours to distribute the information to its dealerships and 
attach labels to light trucks that are capable of accommodating slide-
in campers, and 7 hours to print the labels and utility vehicle 
information in the owner's manual or a separate document included with 
the owner's manual. The estimated annual burden hour is 300 hours. This 
number reflects the total responses (15) times the total hours (20). 
Prior years' manufacturer information indicates that it takes an 
average of $35.00 per hour for professional and clerical staff to 
gather data, distribute and print material. Therefore, the agency 
estimates that the cost associated with the burden hours is $10,500 
($35.00 per hour x 300 burden hours).
    Estimated Annual Cost: $2,262,631.
    The annual cost is based on light truck production. In model year 
2008, light truck manufacturers produced about 6,464,659 units. By 
assuming that all light truck manufacturers (both large and small 
volume manufacturers) incur the same cost, the total annual cost to 
comply with statutory requirements, Sec.  575.103 and Sec.  575.105 is 
$2,262,631 (or $0.35 each unit).
    Comments Are Invited On:
     Whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the 
Department, including whether the information will have practical 
utility.
     Whether the Department's estimate for the burden of the 
proposed information collection is accurate.
     Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on respondents, including the use of automated collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology.
    A comment to OMB is most effective if OMB receives it within 30 
days of publication.
