STB Form Number: None. Type of Review: Extension without change. Respondents: Regulated railroads that did not submit carload waybill sample information to the STB in the previous year. Number of Respondents: 120. Estimated Time per Response: .5 hours. Frequency: Annually. Total Burden Hours (annually including all respondents): 60. Total ‘‘Non-hour Burden’’ Cost: No ‘‘non-hour cost’’ burdens associated with this collection have been identified. Needs and Uses: The ICC Termination Act of 1995, Public Law 104–88, 109 Stat. 803 (1995), which took effect on January 1, 1996, abolished the Interstate Commerce Commission and transferred to the STB the responsibility for the economic regulation of common carrier rail transportation, including the collection and administration of the Carload Waybill Sample. Under 49 CFR 1244, a railroad terminating 4, 500 or more carloads, or terminating at least 5% of the total revenue carloads that terminate in a particular state, in any of the three preceding years is required to file carload waybill sample information (Waybill Sample) for all line-haul revenue waybills terminating on its lines. The information in the Waybill Sample is used to monitor traffic flows and rate trends in the industry. The Board needs to collect information in the Waybill Compliance Survey— information on carloads of traffic terminated each year by U.S. railroads— in order to determine which railroads are required to file the Waybill Sample. In addition, information collected in the Waybill Compliance Survey, on a voluntary basis, about the total operating revenue of each railroad helps to determine whether respondents are subject to other statutory or regulatory requirements. Accurate determinations regarding the size of a railroad helps the Board minimize the reporting burden for smaller railroads. The Board has authority to collect this information PO 00000 Frm 00107 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 under 49 U.S.C. 11144 and 11145 and under 49 CFR 1244.2.

carloads that terminate in a particular state, in any of the three 
preceding years is required to file carload waybill sample information

flows and rate trends in the industry. The Board needs to collect 
information in the Waybill Compliance Survey--information on carloads 
of traffic terminated each year by U.S. railroads--in order to 
determine which railroads are required to file the Waybill Sample. In 
addition, information collected in the Waybill Compliance Survey, on a 
voluntary basis, about the total operating revenue of each railroad 
helps to determine whether respondents are subject to other statutory 
or regulatory requirements. Accurate determinations regarding the size 
of a railroad helps the Board minimize the reporting burden for smaller
