SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Background: Section 14123 of title 49 of the United States Code 
(U.S.C.) requires certain for-hire motor carriers of property and 
household goods to file annual financial reports. The annual reporting 
program was implemented on December 24, 1938 (3 FR 3158), and it was 
subsequently transferred from the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) 
to the U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) Bureau of 
Transportation Statistics (BTS) on January 1, 1996. The Secretary of 
DOT delegated to BTS the responsibility for the program on December 17,

FR 68162). Annual financial reports are filed on Form M (for-hire 
property carriers, including household goods carriers) and Form MP-1 
(for-hire passenger carriers). Responsibility for collection of the 
reports was transferred from BTS to FMCSA on August 17, 2004 (69 FR 
51009), and the regulations were redesignated as 49 CFR part 369 on 
August 10, 2006 (71 FR 45740). FMCSA has continued to collect carriers' 
annual reports and to furnish copies of the reports requested under the 
Freedom of information Act. Motor carriers (including interstate and 
intrastate) subject to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations are 
classified on the basis of their gross carrier operating revenues.\1\

    \1\ For purposes of the Financial and Operating Statistics 
(F&OS) program, carriers are classified into the following three 
groups: (1) Class I carriers are those having annual carrier 
operating revenues (including interstate and intrastate) of $10 
million or more after applying the revenue deflator formula as set 
forth in Note A of 49 CFR 369.2; and (2) Class II carriers are those 
having annual carrier operating revenues (including interstate and 
intrastate) of at least $3 million, but less than $10 million after 
applying the revenue deflator formula as set forth in 49 CFR 369.2.

    Under the Financial and Operating Statistics (F&OS) program, FMCSA 
collects from Class I and Class II property carriers balance sheet and 
income statement data along with information on safety needs, tonnage, 
mileage, employees, transportation equipment, and other related data. 
FMCSA may also ask carriers to respond to surveys concerning their 
operations. The data and information collected would be made publicly 
available and used by FMCSA to determine a motor carrier's compliance 
with the F&OS program requirements prescribed at chapter III of title 
of 49 CFR part 369.
