Then, this legislation requires that a notice of proposed rulemaking be published within 120 days of enactment of MAP– 21. Respondents: State, Local, and Tribal Governments.

The target groups identified in legislation include individuals with this knowledge and experience who work at State Departments of Transportation, Transit authorities, Metropolitan Planning Organizations and other agencies. State Departments of Transportation = 52, MPOs = about 375, Transit agencies = about 50, Tribal and other government agencies = as many as 600. Total respondents = 1077. Total burden hours = 2154 (2 hours per response). Estimated Average Burden per Response: The estimated average reporting burden per response is two hours.
