Please note that comments submitted in response to this Notice are public record. Before including any detailed personal information, you should be aware that your comments as submitted, including your personal information, will be available for public review. Abstract of proposed collection: The DS–11 solicits data necessary for Passport Services to issue a United States passport (book and/or card format) pursuant to authorities granted to the Secretary of State by 22 U.S.C. 211a et seq. and E.O. 11295 (August 5, 1966) for the issuance of passports to U.S. nationals. The issuance of U.S. passports requires the determination of identity, nationality, and entitlement with reference to the provisions of Title III of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) (8 U.S.C. 1401–1504), the 14th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, other applicable treaties and laws, and implementing regulations at 22 CFR parts 50 and 51. The specific regulations pertaining to the Application for a U.S. Passport are at 22 CFR 51.20 through 51.28. Methodology: The information collected on the DS– 11 is used to facilitate the issuance of passports to U.S. citizens and nationals. The primary purpose of soliciting the information is to establish citizenship, identity, and entitlement to the issuance of the U.S. passport or related service, and to properly administer and enforce the laws pertaining to the issuance thereof. Passport Services collects information from U.S. citizens and non-citizen nationals when they complete and submit the Application for a U.S. Passport. Passport applicants can either download the DS–11 from the internet or obtain one from an Acceptance Facility/Passport Agency. The form must be completed and executed at an acceptance facility or passport agency, and submitted with evidence of citizenship and identity. Additional information: The proposed renewal of the DS–11 includes an advisory on the instructions that lawful permanent resident cards (green cards) that are submitted with Form DS–11 will be forwarded to U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services if the applicant is found to be a U.S. citizen. This advisory is consistent with an arrangement between the Department of State and the Department of Homeland Security, as green cards are property of the Department of Homeland Security. The proposed renewal of Form DS–11 also includes a new instruction to VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:03 Apr 01, 2016 Jkt 238001 applicants requiring submission of a photocopy of the applicant’s evidence of U.S. citizenship, in addition to the official or certified copy that is currently required. The official or certified copy will continue to be used to determine whether the applicant has a valid claim to U.S. citizenship. The photocopy will be retained by the Department so that the Department has a complete and accurate record of what the applicant submitted with his or her U.S. passport application. Evidence of U.S. citizenship, however, is only annotated on the application, and a certified copy is generally not retained. The Department considered different alternatives to having the applicant submit a photocopy in addition to the official or certified copy; however, none of these alternatives were logistically feasible or cost effective. Based on a resource analysis study, the additional costs for labor, equipment, supplies, facility modifications and obtaining additional space makes it not feasible for the Department to make photocopies of primary citizenship evidence without significantly affecting agency operations and passport processing times. The Department determined that adding the requirement for a photocopy of the applicant’s evidence of U.S. citizenship is the only feasible way to create a complete record of the documentation submitted with applications. The Department also believes that retaining copies of applicants’ evidence of U.S. citizenship will help the Department develop and deliver online passport applicant services. Applicants currently submit a photocopy of their photo identification. The Privacy Act statement has been amended to clarify that an applicant’s failure to provide his or her Social Security number may result in the denial of an application, consistent with Section 32101 of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (Pub. L. 114–94) which authorizes the Department to deny U.S. passport applications when the applicant failed to include his or her Social Security number. It also makes clear that failure to include one’s Social Security number may also subject the applicant to a penalty enforced by the International Revenue Service. These requirements and the underlying legal authorities are further described on page 3 of the instructions titled ‘‘Federal Tax Law’’ which has also been amended to include a reference to Public Law 114– 94.

The OCC is proposing to extend the approval for the following information collection: Title: Examination Questionnaire. OMB Control No.: 1557–0199. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Abstract: The OCC provides each national bank or Federal savings association with an Examination Survey at the end of its supervisory cycle (12or 18-month period). This information collection permits banks to assess the OCC’s bank supervisory activities, including the: • Effectiveness of OCC communications with the bank; • Reasonableness of OCC requests for data and information; • Quality of OCC decisionmaking during the exam process; • Professionalism of OCC examining staff; and • Responsiveness of OCC examiners. The OCC developed the survey at the suggestion of the banking industry. Banking industry members expressed a desire to provide examination-related feedback to the OCC. The Comptroller of the Currency and OCC supervisory staff considered that expressed need and concurred. Further, the Comptroller of the Currency and OCC supervisory staff find this information collection to be an important tool for measuring OCC examination performance, designing more efficient and effective examinations, and targeting examiner training. This information collection continues to formalize and promote a longstanding OCC program. The OCC always has given the institutions it supervises the opportunity to provide input regarding the examination process. The Post Exit Survey is no longer being used and has been deleted from this collection. Burden Estimates: Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,212. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent per Year: 0.65. Estimated Number of Responses: 788. Estimated Time per Response: 10 minutes. E:\FR\FM\04APN1.SGM 04APN1

CSX Transportation, Inc.--Discontinuance of Service Exemption--in 
Greenbrier and Fayette Counties, W. Va.

    CSX Transportation, Inc. (CSXT), filed a verified notice of 
exemption under 49 CFR part 1152 subpart F--Exempt Abandonments and 
Discontinuances of Service to discontinue service over an approximately 
6.0-mile rail line on its Southern Region, Huntington Division, Sewell 
Valley Subdivision, Engineering C&O Division, from milepost CAF 21.0 to 
milepost CAF 27.0, near Rainelle, in Greenbrier and Fayette Counties, 
W. Va. (the Line). The Line traverses U.S. Postal Service Zip Code 
25962, and includes the station of Rainelle Jct., at milepost CAF 21.0 
(FSAC 83044/OPSL 62375).
    CSXT has certified that: (1) No local freight traffic has moved 
over the Line for at least two years; (2) because the Line is not a 
through line, no overhead traffic has operated or needs to be rerouted; 
(3) no formal complaint filed by a user of rail service on the Line (or 
by a state or local government entity acting on behalf of such user) 
regarding cessation of service over the Line is pending either with the 
Surface Transportation Board or any U.S. District Court or has been 
decided in favor of a complainant within the two-year period; and (4) 
the requirements at 49 CFR 1105.12 (newspaper publication) and 49 CFR 
1152.50(d)(1) (notice to governmental agencies) have been met.
    As a condition to this exemption, any employee adversely affected 
by the discontinuance of service shall be protected under Oregon Short 
Line Railroad--Abandonment Portion Goshen Branch Between Firth & Ammon, 
in Bingham & Bonneville Counties, Idaho, 360 I.C.C. 91 (1979). To 
address whether this condition adequately protects affected employees, 
a petition for partial revocation under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) must be 
filed.
    Provided no formal expression of intent to file an offer of 
financial assistance (OFA) to subsidize continued rail service has been 
received, this

exemption will become effective on May 4, 2016,\1\ unless stayed 
pending reconsideration. Petitions to stay that do not involve 
environmental issues and formal expressions of intent to file an OFA to 
subsidize continued rail service under 49 CFR 1152.27(c)(2) \2\ must be 
filed by April 14, 2016.\3\ Petitions to reopen must be filed by April 
25, 2016, with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street SW., 
Washington, DC 20423-0001.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Pursuant to 49 CFR 1152.50(d)(2), the railroad must file a 
verified notice with the Board at least 50 days before an 
abandonment or discontinuance is to be consummated. CSXT has 
indicated a proposed consummation date of May 3, 2016, but, because 
the verified notice was filed on March 15, 2016, the earliest this 
transaction may be consummated is May 4, 2016.
    \2\ Each OFA must be accompanied by the filing fee, which is 
currently set at $1,600. See 49 CFR 1002.2(f)(25).
    \3\ Because this is a discontinuance proceeding and not an 
abandonment, interim trail use/rail banking and public use 
conditions are not appropriate. Because there will be an 
environmental review during abandonment, this discontinuance does 
not require an environmental review.
