NHTSA intends to use the National 9–1–1 Program to work cooperatively with public and private 9–1–1 stakeholders to establish a vision for the future of 9–1–1 services in the Nation. The RFIs will solicit comments on the priorities and strategies of the National 9–1–1 Program to accomplish its functions, goals and vision. In addition, the RFIs will obtain expressions of interest in participating as partners and will request responses to specific questions, including critical 9–1–1 issues, benefits to stakeholders, available data and methods of collection. These RFIs will NOT seek comment on the 9–1–1 grant program administered by the NHTSA. The RFIs will not include requests for proposals or invitations for bids. In order to collect information needed to develop and implement effective strategies for the National 9–1–1 Program to provide leadership, coordination, guidance and direction to the enhancement of the Nation’s 9–1–1 services, NHTSA must utilize efficient and effective means of eliciting the input and opinions of its constituency groups. If approved, the proposed annual RFIs would assist the National 9–1–1 Program in addressing the myriad of issues posed by implementing new technologies in 9–1–1 services in a systematic, prioritized fashion, with active involvement of its constituency. The results of the proposed annual RFIs would be used to: (1) Identify areas to target programs and activities to achieve the greatest benefit; (2) Develop programs and initiatives aimed at cooperative efforts to enhance 9–1–1 services nationwide; and (3) to provide informational support to States, regions, and localities in their own efforts to enhance 9–1–1 services. Affected Public: Under this proposed effort, the National 9–1–1 Program would issue annual RFIs, seeking responses to specific questions and soliciting comments on the priorities and strategies used by the National 9–1–1 Program to accomplish its functions, goals and vision, and to obtain expressions of interest in participating as partners. The various entities included in the constituency of the National 9–1–1 Program would be notified of the issuance of each RFI. Likely respondents would include companies, agencies and organizations from all of the constituency groups listed above, particularly local and State emergency communications agencies, professional and industry associations, ‘‘traditional’’ telecommunication service providers, ‘‘public safety/emergency’’ service providers and special interest advocacy organizations. Response is VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:51 Jan 21, 2011 Jkt 223001 voluntary. The total number of respondents is estimated at 50. Estimated Total Annual Burden: NHTSA estimates that responses to the questions included in the proposed RFIs would require an average of one hour to complete, for a total of 50 hours. The respondents would not incur any reporting costs from the information collection. The respondents also would not incur any recordkeeping burden or recordkeeping costs from the information collection. 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 January 19, 2011. Michael L.

(CSXT) temporary overhead trackage rights generally between CSXT’s connection to NSR’s tracks at Deepwater, W.Va., milepost V434.1 located on the Vaco Branch via Alloy, W.Va., east to the connection with the Vaughn Railroad Company at milepost WV227.6, including all necessary tracks designated for the purposes of movement by NSR’s operating officer, including head and tail room as necessary. The lines in question total 12.3 miles of track. The exemption became effective on January 18, 2011, and will expire on July 1, 2011.1 CSXT explains that the temporary trackage rights will permit it to resume overhead rail service to the Fola Coal Mine at Bickmore, W.Va.2 As a condition to this exemption, any employees affected by the temporary trackage rights will be protected by the conditions imposed in Norfolk and Western Railway—Trackage Rights— Burlington Northern, 354 I.C.C. 605 (1978), as modified in Mendocino Coast Railway—Lease and Operate— California Western Railroad, 360 I.C.C. 653 (1980), and any employees affected by the discontinuance of those trackage rights will be protected by the conditions set out in Oregon Short Line Railroad—Abandonment Portion Goshen Branch Between Firth and Ammon, in Bingham and Bonneville Counties, Idaho, 360 I.C.C. 91 (1979). This notice is filed under 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(8). If it 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. The filing of a petition to revoke will not automatically stay the effectiveness of the exemption. An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to Docket No. FD 35460, must be filed with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street, SW., Washington, DC 20423–0001. In addition, a copy of each pleading must be served on Louis E. Gitomer, Law Offices of Louis E. Gitomer, 600 Baltimore Avenue, Suite 301, Towson, MD 21204. 1 By decision served on January 18, 2011, the Board granted CSXT’s request for waiver of 49 CFR 1180.4(g) and allowed the exemption to become effective immediately. 2 CSXT used to use its own line to serve this mine, but it cannot do so now, because a necessary bridge has been closed due to safety concerns since September 2010. After the closure, CSXT had been providing service to the mine over NSR lines pursuant to a detour agreement. That agreement has now expired. NSR is willing to continue to allow CSXT to use its lines to reach the mine, but NSR now wishes that such service be provided through temporary trackage rights. CSXT expects the bridge to be in service again by July 1, 2011. PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Board decisions and notices are available on our Web site at http:// www.stb.dot.gov.
