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 March 9, 2009 74 FR 44, pages 10122 and 10123, or U.S. DOT Docket Number NHTSA– 2009–0032. DATES: Comments must be submitted on or before June 8, 2009.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Title: Vehicle Information for the General Public. OMB Number: 2127–0629. Type of Request: Regular. Abstract: NHTSA’s mission is to save lives, prevent injury, and reduce motor vehicle crashes. Providing consumer information on vehicle safety is an important means of improving vehicle safety through market forces. NHTSA provides consumers with vehicle safety information such as front and side crash results, rollover propensity, and the availability of a wide array of safety features provided on each vehicle model. NHTSA also uses this safety feature information when responding to public inquiries and analyzing rulemaking petitions which ask the agency to mandate certain safety features. VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:03 May 06, 2009 Jkt 217001 The agency has attempted to coordinate and reduce the reporting burden associated with this information collection. Another information collection obtains data related to motor vehicle compliance with the agency’s Federal motor vehicle safety standards. Although the consumer information collection data is distinct and unique from the compliance data, respondents to both collections are the same. Consequently, the consumer information collection is closely coordinated with the compliance collection to enable responders to assemble the data most efficiently. The burden is further made easier by sending electronic files to the respondents in which the data is entered and electronically returned to the agency. The consumer information collected is used on the agency’s http:// www.safercar.gov Web site, in the ‘‘Buying a Safer Car’’ and ‘‘Buying a Safer Car for Child Passengers’’ brochures, in other consumer publications, as well as for internal agency analyses and responses to consumer inquiries. Affected Public: Manufacturers that sell motor vehicles in the United States under 10,000 lbs of Gross Vehicle Weight Rating. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 924 hours. 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. 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; the accuracy of the Department’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and 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. Issued in Washington, DC, on May 1, 2009. Stephen R. Kratzke, Associate Administrator for Rulemaking. [FR Doc.

NSR and BB have reached an agreement under which BB will lease and operate the Keysville Line. BB will accept transfer and/or assignment of NCVA’s common carrier obligations. BB certifies that its projected annual revenue as a result of this transaction will not result in the creation of a Class II or Class I rail carrier. However, because its projected annual revenues will exceed $5 million, BB also certifies that it has complied with the notice requirements of 49 CFR 1150.42(e). The transaction is expected to be consummated on or after May 23, 2009, 60 days after BB’s certification of the notice requirements of section 1150.42(e). If the notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time.
