Download as PDF 66002 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 215 / Thursday, November 6, 2014 / Notices consultation is required under Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act. Likewise, the NRC staff has determined that the proposed action does not have the potential to cause effects on historic properties even if they were present. The identified LANL waste is being stored in the FWF, the bottom of which is more than 100 feet below grade, and no ground disturbing activities are associated with the proposed action. Therefore, no consultation is required under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. III. Finding of No Significant Impact The NRC has reviewed WCS’s July 18, 2014, request to amend the 2009 Order. The NRC has found that effluent releases and potential radiological doses to the public are not anticipated to change as a result of this action and that occupational exposures are expected to remain within regulatory limits and as low as reasonably achievable. On the basis of the environmental assessment, the NRC concludes that the proposed action did not have a significant effect on the quality of the human environment. Accordingly, the NRC has determined not to prepare an environmental impact statement for the proposed action. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 30th day of October 2014.

collection is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the agency, including whether the information has practical utility;

    2. Title and purpose of information collection: Medicare; OMB 3220-
0082.
    Under Section 7(d) of the Railroad Retirement Act (RRA), the 
Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) administers the Medicare program for 
persons covered by the railroad retirement system. The RRB uses Form 
AA-6, Employee Application for Medicare; Form AA-7, Spouse/Divorced 
Spouse Application for Medicare; and Form AA-8, Widow/Widower 
Application for Medicare; to obtain the information needed to determine 
whether individuals who have not yet filed for benefits under the RRA

Social Security Act.
    Further, in order to determine if a qualified railroad retirement 
beneficiary who is claiming supplementary medical insurance coverage 
under Medicare is entitled to a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) and/or 
premium surcharge relief because of coverage under an Employer Group 
Health Plan (EGHP), the RRB needs to obtain information regarding the 
claimant's EGHP coverage, if any. The RRB uses Form RL-311-F, Evidence 
of Coverage Under An Employer Group Health Plan, to obtain the basic 
information needed to establish EGHP coverage for a qualified railroad 
retirement beneficiary.
    Completion of the forms is required to obtain a benefit. One

to the forms in the collection.

    3. Request to Non-Railroad Employer for Information About 
Annuitant's Work and Earnings; OMB 3220-0107.
    Under Section 2 of the Railroad Retirement Act (RRA), a railroad 
employee's retirement annuity or an annuity paid to the spouse of a 
railroad employee is subject to work deductions in the Tier II 
component of the annuity and any employee supplemental annuity for any 
month in which the annuitant works for a Last Pre-Retirement Non-
Railroad Employer (LPE). The LPE is defined as the last person, 
company, or institution, other than a railroad employer, that employed 
an employee or spouse annuitant. In addition, the employee, spouse, or 
divorced spouse Tier I annuity benefit is subject to work deductions 
under Section 2(f)(1) of the RRA for earnings from any non-railroad 
employer that are over the annual exempt amount. The regulations 
pertaining to non-payment of annuities by reason of work and LPE are 
contained in 20 CFR 230.1 and 230.2.
    The RRB utilizes Form RL-231-F, Request to Non-Railroad Employer 
for Information About Annuitant's Work and Earnings, to obtain the 
information needed to determine if a work deduction should be applied 
because an annuitant worked in non-railroad employment after the 
annuity beginning date. One response is requested of each respondent. 
Completion is voluntary. The RRB proposes no changes to Form RL-231-F.

    4. Title and purpose of information collection: Gross Earnings 
Report; OMB 3220-0132.
    In order to carry out the financial interchange provisions of 
section 7(c)(2) of the Railroad Retirement Act (RRA), the RRB obtains 
annually from railroad employer's the gross earnings for their 
employees on a one-percent basis, i.e., 1% of each employer's railroad 
employees. The gross earnings sample is based on the earnings of 
employees whose social security numbers end with the digits ``30.'' The 
gross earnings are used to compute payroll taxes under the financial 
interchange.
    The gross earnings information is essential in determining the tax 
amounts involved in the financial interchange with the Social Security 
Administration and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Besides 
being necessary for current financial interchange calculations, the 
gross earnings file tabulations are also an integral part of the data 
needed to estimate future tax income and corresponding financial 
interchange amounts. These estimates are made for internal use and to 
satisfy requests from other government agencies and interested groups. 
In addition, cash flow projections of the social security equivalent 
benefit account, railroad retirement account and cost estimates made 
for proposed amendments to laws

administered by the RRB are dependent on input developed from the 
information collection.
    The RRB utilizes Form BA-11 to obtain gross earnings information 
from railroad employers. Employers have the option of preparing and 
submitting BA-11 reports online via the RRB's Employer Reporting System 
or on paper (or in like format) on magnetic tape cartridges, by File 
Transfer Protocol (FTP), or secure Email. The online BA-11 includes the 
option to file a ``negative report'' (no employees, or no employees 
with the digits ``30''). Completion is mandatory. One response is 
requested of each respondent. The RRB proposes to formally eliminate 
the paper and magnetic tape cartridge versions of Form BA-11 from the 
information collection.
