Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: Respondents may request materials or information submitted to the Commission be withheld from public inspection under 47 CFR 0.459 of the Commission’s rules. The Commission has in place the following policy and procedures for records retention and disposal: Records will be actively maintained as long as the entity remains a tower owner. Paper records will be archived after being keyed or scanned into the Antenna Structure Registration (ASR) database and destroyed when twelve (12) years old. Needs and Uses: As discussed below, the Commission is revising the FCC Form 854 to implement measures adopted in a recent Report and Order, and is seeking Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval for this information collection as revised. The Commission is also reporting an adjustment in the annual burden and annual cost due to an increase in the number of responses and minor increases in hourly wages. After the comment period, the Commission will submit the revised information collection to OMB to obtain the full three year clearance. The purpose of the FCC Form 854 is to register antenna structures (radio towers) that are used for communication services regulated by the Commission; to make changes to existing antenna structure registrations or pending applications for registration; or to notify the Commission of the completion of construction or dismantlement of such structures, as required by Title 47 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Chapter 1. In addition, for proposed new antenna structures, the FCC Form 854 is used to facilitate a preapplication public notification process, including a required 30-day period of local and national notice to provide members of the public with a meaningful opportunity to comment on the environmental effects of proposed antenna structures that require registration with the Commission. The Commission is revising this current information collection due to the adoption of FCC 14–153, Report and Order, which altered the public notification process for certain temporary towers. In the Report and Order, the Commission adopted a narrow exemption from the public notification process for proposed temporary antenna structures meeting VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:00 Nov 20, 2014 Jkt 235001 defined criteria, including limits on the size and duration of the installation, that greatly reduce the likelihood of any significant environmental effects. Specifically, the exemption from the environmental notification process applies only to temporary antenna structures that: (1) Do not require an Environmental Assessment under the Commission’s rules; (2) will be in place for 60 days or less; (3) require notice of construction to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA); (4) do not require marking or lighting under FAA regulations; (5) will be less than 200 feet above ground level; and (6) will involve minimal or no ground excavation. The Report and Order also provided that applicants may request and obtain a single extension of up to 60 additional days upon an appropriate showing. As a result, the FCC Form 854 is being revised to permit applicants to indicate that they are claiming the new exemption and certify that they meet the relevant requirements, and to request an extension. These changes are necessary to implement the new exemption from the public notification process for temporary antenna structures. They will therefore enable the Commission to more efficiently process antenna structure registrations and, by allowing licensees to deploy covered temporary structures without first having to complete the notification process, will enable them to more effectively respond to emergencies, natural disasters, and other planned and unplanned shortterm spikes in demand without undermining the purposes of the notification process.

Total Annual Cost: None. Privacy Impact Assessment: This information collection may affect individuals or households. However, the information collection consists of third-party disclosures in which the Commission has no direct involvement. Personally identifiable information (PII) is not being collected by, made available to, or made accessible by the Commission. There are no additional impacts under the Privacy Act. Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: No known confidentiality between third parties. Needs and Uses: The Commission will submit this information collection for approval after the comment period to obtain the full three year clearance from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The Commission is requesting OMB approval for new disclosure requirements pertaining to Subpart CC of Part 1 of the Commission’s rules. This Subpart was adopted to implement and enforce Section 6409(a) of the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012. Section 6409(a) provides, in part, that ‘‘a State or local government may not deny, and shall approve, any eligible facilities request for a modification of an existing wireless tower or base station that does not substantially change the physical dimensions of such tower or base station.’’ 47 U.S.C. 1455(a)(1). In Subpart CC, the Commission adopted definitions of ambiguous terms, procedural requirements, and remedies to provide guidance to all stakeholders on the proper interpretation of the provision and to enforce its requirements, reducing delays in the review process for wireless infrastructure modifications and facilitating the rapid deployment of wireless infrastructure. The following are the information collection requirements in connection with Subpart CC of Part 1 of the Commission’s rules: • 47 CFR 1.40001(c)(3)(i)—To toll the 60-day review timeframe on grounds that an application is incomplete, the reviewing State or local government must provide written notice to the applicant within 30 days of receipt of the application, clearly and specifically delineating all missing documents or information. Such delineated information is limited to documents or information meeting the standard under paragraph (c)(1) of Section 1.140001. • 47 CFR 1.140001(c)(3)(iii)— Following a supplemental submission from the applicant, the State or local E:\FR\FM\21NON1.SGM 21NON1 69474 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 225 / Friday, November 21, 2014 / Notices government will have 10 days to notify the applicant in writing if the supplemental submission did not provide the information identified in the State or local government’s original notice delineating missing information. The timeframe for review is tolled in the case of second or subsequent notices of incompleteness pursuant to the procedures identified in paragraph (c)(3). Second or subsequent notices of incompleteness may not specify missing documents or information that were not delineated in the original notice of incompleteness. • 47 CFR 1.140001(c)(4)—If a request is deemed granted because of a failure to timely approve or deny the request, the deemed grant does not become effective until the applicant notifies the applicable reviewing authority in writing after the review period has expired (accounting for any tolling) that the application has been deemed granted. These collections are necessary to effectuate the rule changes that implement and enforce the requirements of Section 6409(a). Federal Communications Commission. Marlene H.

Needs and Uses: A request for extension of this information collection (no change in requirements) will be submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) after this 60-day comment period in order to obtain the full three year clearance from OMB. The Commission’s auction rules and requirements are designed to ensure that the competitive bidding process is limited to serious qualified applicants, deter possible abuse of the bidding and licensing process, and enhance the use of competitive bidding to assign Commission licenses in furtherance of the public interest. The information collected on FCC Form 175 is used by the Commission to determine if an applicant is legally, technically, and financially qualified to participate in a Commission auction. Additionally, if an applicant applies for status as a particular type of auction participant pursuant to Commission rules, the Commission uses information collected on Form 175 to determine whether the applicant is eligible for the status requested. Commission staff reviews the information collected on FCC Form 175 for a particular auction as part of the pre-auction process, prior to the auction being held. Staff determines whether each applicant satisfies the Commission’s requirements to participate in the auction and, if applicable, is eligible for the status as a particular type of auction participant it requested. 47 CFR sections 2.106, US note 91 and 27.1134(f) require commercial licensees in the 1755–1780 MHz band to operate on a co-equal, primary operations with Federal systems within specified geographic zones and require such licensees to accept interference from Federal systems as long as such systems remain in the band. To implement these requirements, an applicant in any auction for licenses in the 1755–1780 MHz band will be required to submit a signed statement with its FCC Form 175 acknowledging these requirements.

Information Collections Being Reviewed by the Federal 
Communications Commission

AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION: Notice and request for comments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: As part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork burdens, 
and as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995 (44 U.S.C.

Statutory authority for this information collection is contained in 
Sections 1, 2, 4(i), 303, and 309(j) of the Communications Act of 1934, 
as amended, 47 U.S.C. 151, 152, 154(i), 303, and 309(j), Section 102(C) 
of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 
4332(C), and Section 1506.6 of the regulations of the Council on 
Environmental Quality, 40 CFR 1506.6.
    Total Annual Burden: 24,222 hours.
    Total Annual Cost: $1,176,375.
    Privacy Act Impact Assessment: Yes. This information collection 
contains personally identifiable information on individuals which is 
subject to the Privacy Act of 1974. Information on the FCC Form 854 is 
maintained in the Commission's System of Records, FCC/WTB-1, ``Wireless 
Services Licensing Records.'' These licensee records are publicly 
available and routinely used in accordance of subsection b of the 
Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. 552a(b), as amended. Taxpayer Identification 
Numbers (TINs) and materials that are

afforded confidential treatment pursuant to a request made under 47 CFR 
0.459 of the Commission's rules will not be available for public 
inspection.
    Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: Respondents may request 
materials or information submitted to the Commission be withheld from 
public inspection under 47 CFR 0.459 of the Commission's rules.
    The Commission has in place the following policy and procedures for 
records retention and disposal: Records will be actively maintained as 
long as the entity remains a tower owner. Paper records will be 
archived after being keyed or scanned into the Antenna Structure 
Registration (ASR) database and destroyed when twelve (12) years old.
    Needs and Uses: As discussed below, the Commission is revising the 
FCC Form 854 to implement measures adopted in a recent Report and 
Order, and is seeking Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval 
for this information collection as revised. The Commission is also 
reporting an adjustment in the annual burden and annual cost due to an 
increase in the number of responses and minor increases in hourly 
wages. After the comment period, the Commission will submit the revised 
information collection to OMB to obtain the full three year clearance.
    The purpose of the FCC Form 854 is to register antenna structures 
(radio towers) that are used for communication services regulated by 
the Commission; to make changes to existing antenna structure 
registrations or pending applications for registration; or to notify 
the Commission of the completion of construction or dismantlement of 
such structures, as required by Title 47 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations (CFR), Chapter 1. In addition, for proposed new antenna 
structures, the FCC Form 854 is used to facilitate a pre-application 
public notification process, including a required 30-day period of 
local and national notice to provide members of the public with a 
meaningful opportunity to comment on the environmental effects of 
proposed antenna structures that require registration with the 
Commission.
    The Commission is revising this current information collection due 
to the adoption of FCC 14-153, Report and Order, which altered the 
public notification process for certain temporary towers. In the Report 
and Order, the Commission adopted a narrow exemption from the public 
notification process for proposed temporary antenna structures meeting 
defined criteria, including limits on the size and duration of the 
installation, that greatly reduce the likelihood of any significant 
environmental effects. Specifically, the exemption from the 
environmental notification process applies only to temporary antenna 
structures that: (1) Do not require an Environmental Assessment under 
the Commission's rules; (2) will be in place for 60 days or less; (3) 
require notice of construction to the Federal Aviation Administration 
(FAA); (4) do not require marking or lighting under FAA regulations; 
(5) will be less than 200 feet above ground level; and (6) will involve 
minimal or no ground excavation. The Report and Order also provided 
that applicants may request and obtain a single extension of up to 60 
additional days upon an appropriate showing.
    As a result, the FCC Form 854 is being revised to permit applicants 
to indicate that they are claiming the new exemption and certify that 
they meet the relevant requirements, and to request an extension. These 
changes are necessary to implement the new exemption from the public 
notification process for temporary antenna structures. They will 
therefore enable the Commission to more efficiently process antenna 
structure registrations and, by allowing licensees to deploy covered 
temporary structures without first having to complete the notification 
process, will enable them to more effectively respond to emergencies, 
natural disasters, and other planned and unplanned short-term spikes in 
demand without undermining the purposes of the notification process.

    Total Annual Burden: 3,535 hours.
    Total Annual Cost: None.
    Privacy Impact Assessment: This information collection may affect 
individuals or households. However, the information collection consists 
of third-party disclosures in which the Commission has no direct 
involvement. Personally identifiable information (PII) is not being 
collected by, made available to, or made accessible by the Commission. 
There are no additional impacts under the Privacy Act.
    Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: No known confidentiality 
between third parties.
    Needs and Uses: The Commission will submit this information 
collection for approval after the comment period to obtain the full

The Commission is requesting OMB approval for new disclosure 
requirements pertaining to Subpart CC of Part 1 of the Commission's 
rules. This Subpart was adopted to implement and enforce Section 
6409(a) of the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012. 
Section 6409(a) provides, in part, that ``a State or local government 
may not deny, and shall approve, any eligible facilities request for a 
modification of an existing wireless tower or base station that does 
not substantially change the physical dimensions of such tower or base 
station.'' 47 U.S.C. 1455(a)(1). In Subpart CC, the Commission adopted 
definitions of ambiguous terms, procedural requirements, and remedies 
to provide guidance to all stakeholders on the proper interpretation of 
the provision and to enforce its requirements, reducing delays in the 
review process for wireless infrastructure modifications and 
facilitating the rapid deployment of wireless infrastructure.
    The following are the information collection requirements in 
connection with Subpart CC of Part 1 of the Commission's rules:
     47 CFR 1.40001(c)(3)(i)--To toll the 60-day review 
timeframe on grounds that an application is incomplete, the reviewing 
State or local government must provide written notice to the applicant 
within 30 days of receipt of the application, clearly and specifically 
delineating all missing documents or information. Such delineated 
information is limited to documents or information meeting the standard 
under paragraph (c)(1) of Section 1.140001.

submission from the applicant, the State or local

government will have 10 days to notify the applicant in writing if the 
supplemental submission did not provide the information identified in 
the State or local government's original notice delineating missing 
information. The timeframe for review is tolled in the case of second 
or subsequent notices of incompleteness pursuant to the procedures 
identified in paragraph (c)(3). Second or subsequent notices of 
incompleteness may not specify missing documents or information that 
were not delineated in the original notice of incompleteness.
     47 CFR 1.140001(c)(4)--If a request is deemed granted 
because of a failure to timely approve or deny the request, the deemed 
grant does not become effective until the applicant notifies the 
applicable reviewing authority in writing after the review period has 
expired (accounting for any tolling) that the application has been 
deemed granted.
    These collections are necessary to effectuate the rule changes that 
implement and enforce the requirements of Section 6409(a).
