Download as PDF srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 114 / Tuesday, June 14, 2011 / Notices recall campaign. See 49 CFR 573.6(c)(9). We continue to estimate that there will be about 10 tire recall campaigns per year, and that inclusion of this additional information will require an additional two hours of effort beyond the subtotal above associated with nontire recall campaigns. This additional effort consists of one hour for the NHTSA notification and one hour for the dealer notification for a total of 20 burden hours (10 tire recalls a year × 2 hours per recall). Manufacturer owned or controlled dealers are required to notify the manufacturer and provide certain information should they deviate from the manufacturer’s disposal plan. Consistent with previous analysis, we continue to ascribe zero burden hours to this requirement since to date no such reports have been provided and our original expectation that dealers would comply with manufacturers’ plans has proven true. Accordingly, we estimate 20 burden hours a year will be spent complying with the tire recall campaign requirements found in 49 CFR 573.6(c)(9). And, as we have yet to receive a single report of a defective or noncompliant tire being intentionally sold or leased in the fourteen years since this rule was proposed, our previous estimate of zero burden hours remains unchanged with this notice. In summary, our previous estimate of 21,370 total burden hours associated with this approved information collection stands. Estimated Number of Respondents: NHTSA receives reports of defect or noncompliance from roughly 175 manufacturers per year. Again, this figure fluctuates from year to year, but we do not have a basis at this juncture to suspect this annual figure will change significantly. Accordingly, we estimate that there will continue to be approximately 175 manufacturers per year filing defect or noncompliance reports and completing the other information collection responsibilities associated with those filings. We discussed above that we have yet to receive a single report filed pursuant to 49 CFR 573.10. This information collection requirement, to reiterate, requires anyone who sells or leases a defective or noncompliant tire, with knowledge of that tire’s defectiveness or noncompliance, to report that sale or lease to NHTSA. Given the lack of filing history over many years, we estimate that there will continue to be zero reports filed and therefore zero respondents as to this requirement. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:27 Jun 13, 2011 Jkt 223001 In summary, we estimate that there will be a total of 175 respondents per year associated with OMB No. 2127– 0004. 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 on: June 2, 2011. Frank Borris, Director, Office of Defects Investigation.

(AKMD) over approximately 2.57 miles of CVR’s rail line, known as the Gurdon Segment, extending between a connection with Union Pacific Railroad Company (UP) at milepost 426.88 in Gurdon, Ark. and milepost 429.5 north of Gurdon.1 The earliest this transaction may be consummated is July 7, 2011, the effective date of the exemption (30 days after the exemption was filed), unless otherwise ordered by the Board.2 1 AKMD states that the mileposts of the Gurdon Segment are slightly changed in this transaction from those listed in the emergency service proceeding involving the same line. See Ark. Midland R.R.—Alternative Rail Service—Caddo Valley R.R., FD 35416 (STB served Sept. 17, 2010, Oct. 15, 2010, and Feb. 11, 2011). Specifically, the connection with UP at Gurdon is a technical correction of one-hundredth of a mile based on AKMD’s physical observation, and at the other end of the segment, the milepost has been shortened to exclude trackage and an attendant grade crossing that was not needed or used for any rail service purpose. 2 On June 7, 2011, AKMD concurrently filed a petition requesting that the Board allow this PO 00000 Frm 00167 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 34805 The purpose of the transaction is to allow AKMD to continue to provide rail service on the Gurdon Segment pending transfer of the line to AKMD. Under 49 U.S.C. 10502(g), the Board may not use its exemption authority to relieve a rail carrier of its statutory obligation to protect the interests of its employees. Section 11326(c), however, does not provide for labor protection for transactions under §§ 11324 and 11325 that involve only Class III rail carriers. Accordingly, the Board may not impose labor protective conditions here, because all of the carriers involved are Class III carriers. This notice is filed under 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(7). 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. The filing of a petition to revoke will not automatically stay the transaction. An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to Docket No. FD 35530, 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 Thomas J. Litwiler, Fletcher & Sippel LLC, 29 North Wacker Drive, Suite 920, Chicago, IL 60606.
