Please identify the relevant collection of information by referring to its OMB Control Number. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for public comments on the following proposed collection of information. Title: Racial Profiling, State Traffic Data, and Child Booster Seat Grant Program. OMB Control Number: 2127–0653. Type of Request: Extension of currently approved collection. Affected Public: State Governments. Abstract: The Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act—A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA– LU), Public Law 109–59, authorizes several grant programs covering fiscal years (FY) 2006–2009, to be administered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Specifically, these grant programs include the following: Section 1906 authorizing a grant program for States that enact and enforce a law that prohibits racial profiling in the enforcement of traffic laws on Federalaid highways; Section 2006 (codified at 23 U.S.C. 408) authorizing a grant program for States to support the development and implementation of State traffic safety information systems; and Section 2011 authorizing a grant program for States for child safety seats and child booster seats. Under each program, a State must indicate to NHTSA how it intends to obligate and expend grant funds for each fiscal year, and how grant funds were expended and spent each fiscal year. It is important for NHTSA to be notified about these activities so that it can effectively administer the programs and account for the expenditure of funds. To reduce burdens, a State will document these activities by submitting the information on its Uniform Safety Program Cost Summary Form (HS–217), a form with existing PRA clearance (OMB Control Number 2127–0003). The information is submitted electronically in the agency’s grants tracking systems and periodically updated. Estimated Annual Burden: 5,130. Estimated Number of Respondents: 56 (fifty States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands) for Section 1906; 57 (fifty VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:20 Jun 21, 2012 Jkt 226001 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the Bureau of Indian Affairs) for Section 2006 (codified at 23 U.S.C. 408); and 52 (fifty States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico) for Section 2011.
