Individuals can obtain copies of the OMB clearance package by writing to OR.Reports.Clearance@ssa.gov. Response to Notice of Revised Determination—20 CFR 404.913– 404.914, 404.992(b), 416.1413– 416.1414, and 416.1492(d)—0960–0347. When SSA determines: (1) Claimants for initial disability benefits do not actually have a disability, or (2) current disability recipients’ records show their disability ceased, SSA notifies the disability claimants or recipients of this decision. In response to this notice, the affected claimants and disability recipients have the following recourse: (1) They may request a disability hearing to contest SSA’s decision and (2) they may submit additional information or evidence for SSA to consider. Disability claimants, recipients, and their representatives use Form SSA–765 to accomplish these two actions. If respondents request the first option, SSA’s Disability Hearings Unit uses the form to schedule a hearing; ensure an interpreter is present, if required; and ensure the disability recipients or claimants and their representatives receive a notice about the place and time of the hearing. If respondents choose the second option, SSA uses the form and other evidence to reevaluate the claimant’s case and determine if the new information or evidence will change SSA’s decision. The respondents are disability claimants, current disability recipients, or their representatives. Type of Request: Extension of an OMB-approved information collection.

ACTION: As required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3501– 3521 (PRA), the Surface Transportation Board (STB or Board) gives notice of its intent to seek approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for an extension of the Waybill Compliance Survey. This information collection is described in detail below. Comments are requested concerning: (1) The accuracy of the Board’s burden estimates; (2) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; (3) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology, when appropriate; and (4) whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Board, including whether the collection has practical utility. Submitted comments will be summarized and included in the Board’s request for OMB approval. SUMMARY: Description of Collection Title: Waybill Compliance Survey. OMB Control Number: 2140–0010.

Number of Respondents: 523. Estimated Time per Response: .5 hours. Frequency: Annually. Total Burden Hours (annually including all respondents): 60. Total ‘‘Non-hour Burden’’ Cost: None identified. Filings are submitted electronically to the Board. Needs and Uses: Under the Interstate Commerce Act, as amended by the ICC Termination Act of 1995, Pub. L. 104– 88, 109 Stat. 803 (1995), the Board is responsible for the economic regulation of common carrier rail transportation, including the collection and administration of the Carload Waybill Sample. Under 49 CFR part 1244, a railroad terminating 4,500 or more carloads, or terminating at least 5% of the total revenue carloads that terminate in a particular state, in any of the three preceding years is required to file carload waybill sample information (Waybill Sample) for all line-haul revenue waybills terminating on its lines. (The Waybill Sample collection is approved under OMB Control Number 2140–0015, which expires on June 30, 2017.) The information in the Waybill Sample is used to monitor traffic flows and rate trends in the industry. In order to determine whether any of the surveyed railroads should be filing a Waybill Sample, the Board needs to collect the information in the Waybill Compliance Survey—information on the number of carloads of traffic terminated each year by U.S. railroads—from railroads that are not filing a Waybill Sample. In addition, information collected in the Waybill Compliance Survey, on a voluntary basis, about the total operating revenue of each railroad helps to determine whether respondents are subject to other statutory or regulatory requirements. Because many of the Board’s reporting requirements apply only to railroads with large operating revenues, accurate determinations regarding the size of a railroad’s operating revenues help the Board minimize the reporting burden for smaller railroads. The Board has authority to collect this information under 49 U.S.C. 11144–45, and under 49 CFR 1244.2. DATES: Comments on this information collection should be submitted by December 29, 2015. ADDRESSES: Direct all comments to Chris Oehrle, Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street SW., Washington, DC 20423–0001, or to PRA@stb.dot.gov.

[Assistance for the hearing impaired is available through the Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) at 1–800–877–8339.] SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA, a federal agency that conducts or sponsors a collection of information must display a currently valid OMB control number. A collection of information, which is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c), includes agency requirements that persons submit reports, keep records, or provide information to the agency, third parties, or the public. Under § 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, federal agencies are required to provide, prior to an agency’s submitting a collection to OMB for approval, a 60-day notice and comment period through publication in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension of an existing collection of information.

SteelRiver Infrastructure Fund North America LP (SteelRiver), SteelRiver Devco Holdings LLC (Devco), and SR Transportation Holdings LLC (SRTH) (collectively, Applicants), all noncarriers, have jointly filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(2) to acquire control of Georgia Northeastern Railroad Company, Inc. (GNRR) and its subsidiary, Blue Ridge Scenic Excursions, Inc. (BRSE).1 1 Applicants seek to acquire control of GNRR, a Class III carrier, and BRSE, which, according to Applicants, ‘‘operates a scenic excursion train service over track leased from GNRR during March through December between Blue Ridge and PO 00000 Frm 00104 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 66969 Applicants state that SRTH intends to acquire the shares of GNRR on or after November 15, 2015, the effective date of the exemption (30 days after the verified notice of exemption was filed). SRTH is owned by Devco, which in turn is owned by SteelRiver. Devco and SRTH do not control any carriers. SteelRiver is owned by a diverse group of U.S. and foreign pension funds, insurance companies, and other investors. SteelRiver controls PRC Funding LLC, a noncarrier, which controls Patriot Funding LLC, a noncarrier, which controls PRC Holdings LLC, a noncarrier, which controls PRC Midco LLC, a noncarrier, which controls Patriot Rail Company LLC, (Patriot), a noncarrier. Patriot controls 13 Class III railroads (collectively, the Subsidiary Railroads). For a complete list of these rail carriers, and the states in which they operate, see the notice of exemption filed on October 16, 2015, in this proceeding. The notice is available on the Board’s web at WWW.STB.DOT.GOV. GNRR operates approximately 105.92 miles of railroad between Marietta and Mineral Bluff, Ga. GNRR owns about 48 miles, leases about 32.74 miles from the CSX Transporation, Inc., and leases about 25.18 miles from the Georgia Department of Transportation, including industrial, spur and other track. According to Applicants, SRTH entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the Agreement) 2 dated October 16, 2015, with GNRR; BRSE; Wilds L. Pierce; Kevin F. O’Gara, Sr.; Carolyn T. McAfee; Estate of Charles C. Schoen, III; Michael L. Pierce; Stephen K. Slayden; Kevin S. Slayden; The John Randolph Seckman Residuary Trust; Donnie L. Plumley; James A. Day; B. Thomas Lockett; and Joy F. Hardin. Under the Agreement, SRTH will acquire all of the common stock of GNRR. The notice therefore seeks exemption for SRTH to acquire control, and for Devco and SteelRiver to indirectly acquire control, of GNRR and BRSE. Applicants state that: (1) The Subsidiary Railroads will not connect with GNRR and BRSE; (2) the proposed transaction is not part of a series of anticipated transactions that would connect the railroads with each other or Copperhill, Ga.’’ BRSE does not appear to be a Class III carrier, and, if it is not, the exemption will apply only to GNRR. 2 A redacted version of the Agreement was filed with the notice of exemption. Applicants simultaneously filed a motion for protective order to protect the confidential and commercially sensitive information contained in the unredacted version of the Agreement, which Applicants submitted under seal. That motion will be addressed in a separate decision. E:\FR\FM\30OCN1.SGM 30OCN1

Surface Transportation Board


Notice and Request for Comments

AGENCY: Surface Transportation Board, DOT.

ACTION: 60-Day notice of intent to seek extension of approval: Waybill 
Compliance Survey.

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

SUMMARY: As required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 
3501-3521 (PRA), the Surface Transportation Board (STB or Board) gives 
notice of its intent to seek approval from the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) for an extension of the Waybill Compliance Survey. This 
information collection is described in detail below.
    Comments are requested concerning: (1) The accuracy of the Board's 
burden estimates; (2) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity 
of the information collected; (3) ways to minimize the burden of the 
collection of information on the respondents, including the use of 
automated collection techniques or other forms of information 
technology, when appropriate; and (4) whether the collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the Board, including whether the collection has practical utility. 
Submitted comments will be summarized and included in the Board's 
request for OMB approval.

Description of Collection

    Title: Waybill Compliance Survey.
    OMB Control Number: 2140-0010.
    STB Form Number: None.
    Type of Review: Extension without change.

[[Page 66969]]

    Respondents: Regulated railroads that did not submit carload 
waybill sample information to the STB in the previous year.
    Number of Respondents: 523.
    Estimated Time per Response: .5 hours.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Total Burden Hours (annually including all respondents): 60.
    Total ``Non-hour Burden'' Cost: None identified. Filings are 
submitted electronically to the Board.
    Needs and Uses: Under the Interstate Commerce Act, as amended by 
the ICC Termination Act of 1995, Pub. L. 104-88, 109 Stat. 803 (1995), 
the Board is responsible for the economic regulation of common carrier 
rail transportation, including the collection and administration of the 
Carload Waybill Sample. Under 49 CFR part 1244, a railroad terminating 
4,500 or more carloads, or terminating at least 5% of the total revenue 
carloads that terminate in a particular state, in any of the three 
preceding years is required to file carload waybill sample information 
(Waybill Sample) for all line-haul revenue waybills terminating on its 
lines. (The Waybill Sample collection is approved under OMB Control 
Number 2140-0015, which expires on June 30, 2017.) The information in 
the Waybill Sample is used to monitor traffic flows and rate trends in 
the industry.
    In order to determine whether any of the surveyed railroads should 
be filing a Waybill Sample, the Board needs to collect the information 
in the Waybill Compliance Survey--information on the number of carloads 
of traffic terminated each year by U.S. railroads--from railroads that 
are not filing a Waybill Sample. In addition, information collected in 
the Waybill Compliance Survey, on a voluntary basis, about the total 
operating revenue of each railroad helps to determine whether 
respondents are subject to other statutory or regulatory requirements. 
Because many of the Board's reporting requirements apply only to 
railroads with large operating revenues, accurate determinations 
regarding the size of a railroad's operating revenues help the Board 
minimize the reporting burden for smaller railroads. The Board has 
authority to collect this information under 49 U.S.C. 11144-45, and 
under 49 CFR 1244.2.

DATES: Comments on this information collection should be submitted by 
December 29, 2015.

ADDRESSES: Direct all comments to Chris Oehrle, Surface Transportation 
Board, 395 E Street SW., Washington, DC 20423-0001, or to 
PRA@stb.dot.gov. When submitting comments, please refer to ``Waybill 
Compliance Survey.'' For further information regarding this collection 
or to obtain a copy of this collection form, the ``Annual Waybill 
Compliance Survey,'' contact Pedro Ramirez at (202) 245-0333 or at 
pedro.ramirez@stb.dot.gov. [Assistance for the hearing impaired is 
available through the Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) at 1-
800-877-8339.]

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA, a federal agency that 
conducts or sponsors a collection of information must display a 
currently valid OMB control number. A collection of information, which 
is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c), includes agency 
requirements that persons submit reports, keep records, or provide 
information to the agency, third parties, or the public. Under Sec.  
3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, federal agencies are required to provide, 
prior to an agency's submitting a collection to OMB for approval, a 60-
day notice and comment period through publication in the Federal 
Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including 
each proposed extension of an existing collection of information.
