FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For questions contact Nicholas Englund in the Office of the Chief Counsel at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, telephone (202) 366– 5263. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, before an agency submits a proposed collection of information to OMB for approval, it must publish a document in the Federal Register providing a 60-day comment period and otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of information. The OMB has promulgated regulations describing what must be included in such a document. Under OMB’s regulations (at VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:43 Oct 08, 2010 Jkt 223001 5 CFR 1320.8(d)), an agency must ask for public comment on the following: (i) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (ii) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (iii) how to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (iv) how to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for public comment on the following extension of clearance for a currently approved collection of information: Confidential Business Information Type of Request—Extension of clearance. OMB Clearance Number—2127–0025. Form Number—This collection of information uses no standard forms. Requested Expiration Date of Approval—Three (3) years from the date of approval of the collection. Summary of the Collection of Information—Persons who submit information to the agency and seek to have the agency withhold some or all of that information from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act (‘‘FOIA’’), 5 U.S.C. 552, must provide the agency with sufficient support that justifies the confidential treatment of that information. In addition, a request for confidential treatment must be accompanied by: (1) A complete copy of the submission; (2) a copy of the submission containing only those portions for which confidentiality is not sought with the confidential portions redacted; and (3) either a second complete copy of the submission or alternatively those portions of the submission that contain the information for which confidentiality is sought. Furthermore, the requestor must submit a completed certification as provided in 49 CFR Part 512, Appendix A. See generally 49 CFR Part 512 (NHTSA Confidential Business Information regulations). Part 512 ensures that information submitted under a claim of confidentiality is properly evaluated in an efficient manner under prevailing PO 00000 Frm 00129 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 legal standards and, where appropriate, accorded confidential treatment. To facilitate the evaluation process, in their requests for confidential treatment, submitters of information may make reference to certain limited classes of information that are presumptively treated as confidential, such as blueprints and engineering drawings, future specific model plans (under limited conditions), and future vehicle production or sales figures for specific models (under limited conditions). Further, most early warning reporting (EWR) data are confidential under class determinations provided in 49 CFR Part 512, with the exception of information on death, injury, and property damage claims and notices, which would be handled on an individual basis according to the procedures of Part 512 and are, therefore, covered by this notice. 72 FR 59434 (Oct. 19, 2007). Description of the Need for the Information and Use of the Information—NHTSA receives confidential information for use in its activities, which include investigations, rulemaking actions, program planning and management, and program evaluation. The information is needed to ensure the agency has sufficient relevant information for decisionmaking in connection with these activities. Some of this information is submitted voluntarily, as in rulemaking, and some is submitted in response to compulsory information requests, as in investigations. Description of the Likely Respondents, Including Estimated Number and Proposed Frequency of Response to the Collection of Information—This collection of information applies to entities that submit to the agency information that the entities wish to have withheld from disclosure under the FOIA. Thus, the collection of information applies to entities that are subject to laws administered by the agency or agency regulations and are under an obligation to provide information to the agency. It also includes entities that voluntarily submit information to the agency. Such entities would include manufacturers of motor vehicles and of motor vehicle equipment. Importers are considered to be manufacturers. It may also include other entities that are involved with motor vehicles or motor vehicle equipment but are not manufacturers. Estimate of the Total Annual Reporting and Recordkeeping Burdens Resulting from the Collection of Information—3,600 hours. The agency receives requests for confidential treatment that vary in size from requests that ask the agency to E:\FR\FM\12OCN1.SGM 12OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 196 / Tuesday, October 12, 2010 / Notices withhold as little as a portion of one page to multiple boxes of documents. NHTSA estimates that it will take on average approximately eight (8) hours for an entity to prepare a submission requesting confidential treatment. This estimate will vary based on the size of the submission, with smaller and voluntary submissions taking considerably less time to prepare. The agency based this estimate on the volume of requests received over the past three years. NHTSA estimates that it will receive approximately 450 requests for confidential treatment annually. This figure is based on the average number of requests received over the past three years. We selected this period because it provides an estimate based on incoming requests for the most recent three years. The agency estimates that the total burden for this information collection will be approximately 3,600 hours, which is based on the number of requests (450) multiplied by the estimated number of hours to prepare each submission (8 hours). Since nothing in the rule requires those persons who request confidential treatment pursuant to Part 512 to keep copies of any records or requests submitted to us, recordkeeping costs imposed would be zero hours and zero costs.

ACTION: Notice of cancellation of preparation of environmental impact statement. AGENCY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces that it has decided to discontinue preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the proposed relocation of Runway 11R/29L and associated development at Tucson International Airport. The FAA’s decision to discontinue preparation of the EIS is based upon the results from a planning srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:43 Oct 08, 2010 Jkt 223001 effort completed by the Tucson Airport Authority (TAA), the owner and operator of the airport. This planning effort reveled the project purpose and need has changed significantly. As a result, FAA has determined the new runway proposal at Tucson International Airport is not ripe for decision at this time.

Box 92007, Los Angeles, CA 90009–2007, Telephone: (310) 725– 3614. On October 13, 2005, the FAA, published in the Federal Register a Notice of Intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and hold a Public Scoping Meeting at Tucson International Airport (Volume 70, Number 197, FR 59800–59801). The EIS and Public Scoping Meeting were to address the proposed relocation of Runway 11R/29L and associated development at airport. In 2005, the FAA based its decision to prepare the EIS on the procedures described in FAA Order 5050.4A, Airport Environmental Handbook, and FAA Order 1050.1E, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures. FAA also based its decision to prepare a federal EIS primarily on TAA’s proposal to relocate Runway 11R/29L, 450 feet to the southwest, creating a centerline to centerline separation of 1,156 feet between the existing Runway 11L29R. The length of the relocated Runway 11R/29L would have been 11,000 feet long by 150 feet wide. Recently, the TAA completed a planning effort that reveled that the project’s purpose and need changed significantly. Therefore, when the TAA submits a new Airport Layout Plan with a revised project depicted on it, the FAA will determine the appropriate National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documentation necessary to assess the environmental effects of those improvements pursuant to FAA Order 5050.4B, National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Implementing Instructions for Airport Actions, and FAA Order 1050.1E, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 
before an agency submits a proposed collection of information to OMB 
for approval, it must publish a document in the Federal Register 
providing a 60-day comment period and otherwise consult with members of 
the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of 
information. The OMB has promulgated regulations describing what must 
be included in such a document. Under OMB's regulations (at 5 CFR 
1320.8(d)), an agency must ask for public comment on the following:
    (i) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for 
the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including 
whether the information will have practical utility;
    (ii) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
    (iii) how to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
    (iv) how to minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic 
submission of responses.
    In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for public 
comment on the following extension of clearance for a currently 
approved collection of information:

Confidential Business Information

    Type of Request--Extension of clearance.
    OMB Clearance Number--2127-0025.
    Form Number--This collection of information uses no standard forms.
    Requested Expiration Date of Approval--Three (3) years from the 
date of approval of the collection.
    Summary of the Collection of Information--Persons who submit 
information to the agency and seek to have the agency withhold some or 
all of that information from disclosure under the Freedom of 
Information Act (``FOIA''), 5 U.S.C. 552, must provide the agency with 
sufficient support that justifies the confidential treatment of that 
information. In addition, a request for confidential treatment must be 
accompanied by: (1) A complete copy of the submission; (2) a copy of 
the submission containing only those portions for which confidentiality 
is not sought with the confidential portions redacted; and (3) either a 
second complete copy of the submission or alternatively those portions 
of the submission that contain the information for which 
confidentiality is sought. Furthermore, the requestor must submit a 
completed certification as provided in 49 CFR Part 512, Appendix A. See 
generally 49 CFR Part 512 (NHTSA Confidential Business Information 
regulations).
    Part 512 ensures that information submitted under a claim of 
confidentiality is properly evaluated in an efficient manner under 
prevailing legal standards and, where appropriate, accorded 
confidential treatment. To facilitate the evaluation process, in their 
requests for confidential treatment, submitters of information may make 
reference to certain limited classes of information that are 
presumptively treated as confidential, such as blueprints and 
engineering drawings, future specific model plans (under limited 
conditions), and future vehicle production or sales figures for 
specific models (under limited conditions). Further, most early warning 
reporting (EWR) data are confidential under class determinations 
provided in 49 CFR Part 512, with the exception of information on 
death, injury, and property damage claims and notices, which would be 
handled on an individual basis according to the procedures of Part 512 
and are, therefore, covered by this notice. 72 FR 59434 (Oct. 19, 
2007).
    Description of the Need for the Information and Use of the 
Information--NHTSA receives confidential information for use in its 
activities, which include investigations, rulemaking actions, program 
planning and management, and program evaluation. The information is 
needed to ensure the agency has sufficient relevant information for 
decision-making in connection with these activities. Some of this 
information is submitted voluntarily, as in rulemaking, and some is 
submitted in response to compulsory information requests, as in 
investigations.
    Description of the Likely Respondents, Including Estimated Number 
and Proposed Frequency of Response to the Collection of Information--
This collection of information applies to entities that submit to the 
agency information that the entities wish to have withheld from 
disclosure under the FOIA. Thus, the collection of information applies 
to entities that are subject to laws administered by the agency or 
agency regulations and are under an obligation to provide information 
to the agency. It also includes entities that voluntarily submit 
information to the agency. Such entities would include manufacturers of 
motor vehicles and of motor vehicle equipment. Importers are considered 
to be manufacturers. It may also include other entities that are 
involved with motor vehicles or motor vehicle equipment but are not 
manufacturers.
    Estimate of the Total Annual Reporting and Recordkeeping Burdens 
Resulting from the Collection of Information--3,600 hours.
    The agency receives requests for confidential treatment that vary 
in size from requests that ask the agency to

[[Page 62627]]

withhold as little as a portion of one page to multiple boxes of 
documents. NHTSA estimates that it will take on average approximately 
eight (8) hours for an entity to prepare a submission requesting 
confidential treatment. This estimate will vary based on the size of 
the submission, with smaller and voluntary submissions taking 
considerably less time to prepare. The agency based this estimate on 
the volume of requests received over the past three years.
    NHTSA estimates that it will receive approximately 450 requests for 
confidential treatment annually. This figure is based on the average 
number of requests received over the past three years. We selected this 
period because it provides an estimate based on incoming requests for 
the most recent three years. The agency estimates that the total burden 
for this information collection will be approximately 3,600 hours, 
which is based on the number of requests (450) multiplied by the 
estimated number of hours to prepare each submission (8 hours).
    Since nothing in the rule requires those persons who request 
confidential treatment pursuant to Part 512 to keep copies of any 
records or requests submitted to us, recordkeeping costs imposed would 
be zero hours and zero costs.

1.50.
