Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 198 / Wednesday, October 14, 2015 / Notices activity is affecting rail transportation of flammable liquids and allow PHMSA to make data-driven decisions in advance of the compliance milestones in the retrofit schedule. The Oklahoma DOT states that it does not object to the tank car retrofitting reporting requirements but encourages PHMSA to reemphasize the importance of evaluating the causes of oil by rail accidents so as to prevent them in the future. We estimate that this reporting requirement will result in a revised information collection and recordkeeping burden as follows: OMB No. 2137–0628, ‘‘Flammable Hazardous Materials by Rail Transportation.’’ Additional Burden request: Additional Number of Respondents: 50. Additional Annual Responses: 50. Additional Annual Burden Hours: 25. Additional Total Annual Burden Cost: $1,000. Revised Total First Year Burden: Revised Total Annual Number of Respondents: 2,039. Revised Total Annual Responses: 2,609. Revised Total Annual Burden Hours: 103,814. Revised Total Annual Burden Cost: $7,384,633.55. Revised Subsequent Year Burden: Revised Total Annual Number of Respondents: 2,039. Revised Total Annual Responses: 2,609. Revised Total Annual Burden Hours: 29,054. Revised Total Annual Burden Cost: $2,038,988. Signed in Washington, DC, on October 7, 2015. William S.
