The petitions, which were filed by Paul J. Connor and Shirley Strader (Petitioners), are both postmarked May 11, 2011, and were posted on the Commission’s Web site May 17, 2011. The Commission hereby institutes a proceeding under 39 U.S.C. 404(d)(5) and designates the case as Docket No. A2011–16 to consider Petitioners’ appeals.

[FR Doc. 2011–12821 Filed 5–24–11; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 7710–FW–P RAILROAD RETIREMENT BOARD WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with NOTICES Agency Forms Submitted for OMB Review, Request for Comments Summary: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) is forwarding an Information Collection Request (ICR) to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Our ICR describes the information we seek to collect from the public. Review and approval by OIRA ensures that we impose appropriate paperwork burdens. The RRB uses a Personal Identification Number (PIN)/Password system that allows RRB customers to conduct business with the agency electronically. As part of the system, the RRB collects information needed to VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:12 May 24, 2011 Jkt 223001 establish a unique PIN/Password that allows customer access to RRB Internetbased services. The information collected is matched against records of the railroad employee that are maintained by the RRB. If the information is verified, the request is approved and the RRB mails a Password Request Code (PRC) to the requestor. If the information provided cannot be verified, the requestor is advised to contact the nearest field office of the RRB to resolve the discrepancy. Once a PRC is obtained from the RRB, the requestor can apply for a PIN/Password online. Once the PIN/Password has been established, the requestor has access to RRB Internet-based services. The RRB estimates that approximately 9,613 requests for PRCs and 9,613 PIN/ Passwords are received annually and that it takes 5 minutes per response to secure a PRC and 1.5 minutes to establish a PIN/Password. Two responses are requested of each respondent and completion is voluntary. However, the RRB will be unable to provide a PRC or allow a requestor to establish a PIN/Password PO 00000 Frm 00106 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (thereby denying system access), if the requests are not completed. The RRB invites comments on the proposed collection of information to determine (1) The practical utility of the collection; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden of the collection; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information that is the subject of collection; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of collections on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments to the RRB or OIRA must contain the OMB control number of the ICR. For proper consideration of your comments, it is best if the RRB and OIRA receive them within 30 days of the publication date. Previous Requests for Comments: The RRB has already published the initial 60-day notice (76 FR 15351) required by 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2) on March 21, 2011. That request elicited no comments.
