SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Control Number: 212—New. Title: Using Automated License Plate Readers for Traffic Safety Purposes. Form Numbers: N/A. Type of Review: New Information Collection. Abstract: NHTSA’s mission is to save lives, prevent injuries, and reduce economic costs due to road traffic crashes, through education, research, safety standards, and enforcement activity. NHTSA has statutory authority (see 23 U.S.C. 403; 49 CFR 1.50; 49CFR part 501) to accomplish this mission. Under the Highway Safety Act of 1966, Section 403, the Secretary of Transportation is required to carry out research and demonstration programs. In addition, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP– 21), Subsection 402(c), states that the Secretary, acting through the NHTSA Administrator, shall establish a cooperative program to research and evaluate State highway safety countermeasures. MAP–21 provides that this new cooperative research and evaluation program, the National Cooperative Research and Evaluation Program (NCREP), is to be administered by NHTSA and jointly managed by NHTSA and the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA). The Volpe Center is providing support to NHTSA under an interagency agreement in establishing and managing this new cooperative Program. Under the NCREP Program, GHSA, in conjunction with NHTSA, identified a need to discover and report on the state of knowledge and practice regarding the use of ALPRs VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:31 Apr 28, 2016 Jkt 238001 for traffic safety purposes. As part of this project, this information collection activity includes case studies that will be conducted at 9 to 12 law enforcement agency (LEA) sites. Site selection will cover the diversity of LEAs that are deploying ALPR for traffic safety purposes (e.g. agencies of different sizes, those operating in different regions of the country), as determined through a thorough review of the literature. Case studies will involve qualitative interviews with a variety of personnel in each selected LEA. A discussion guide comprised of approximately 15 to 20 questions will be used for each interview. This approach will provide a knowledge base, including rich, contextual information, from those most knowledgeable about the weaknesses and strengths or barriers and incentives to this technology’s effective implementation and use for traffic safety purposes. Affected Public: Law enforcement agency personnel. Estimated Number of Respondents: Approximately 60 (5 personnel from each agency). Frequency: One time only. Number of Responses: 15–20. Estimated Annual Burden: 45 hours (45 minutes per respondent). Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the Department’s performance; (b) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (c) ways for the Department to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information collection; and (d) ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the quality of the collected information. The agency will summarize and/or include your comments in the request for OMB’s clearance of this information collection. Authority: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995; 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35, as amended; and 49 CFR 1:48. Issued on: April 26, 2016. Jeff Michael, Associate Administrator, Research and Program Development.

[FR Doc. 2016–10064 Filed 4–28–16; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4830–01–P DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY Internal Revenue Service Credit for Renewable Electricity Production and Refined Coal Production, and Publication of Inflation Adjustment Factor and Reference Prices for Calendar Year 2016 Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Treasury. ACTION: Publication of inflation adjustment factor and reference prices for calendar year 2016 as required by sections 45(e)(2)(A) (26 U.S.C. 45(e)(2)(A)) and 45(e)(8)(C) (26 U.S.C. 45(e)(8)(C)) of the Internal Revenue Code. AGENCY: The 2016 inflation adjustment factor and reference prices are used in determining the availability of the credit for renewable electricity production and refined coal production and Indian coal production under section 45. DATES: The 2016 inflation adjustment factor and reference prices apply to calendar year 2016 sales of kilowatt hours of electricity produced in the United States or a possession thereof from qualified energy resources and to 2016 sales of refined coal and Indian coal produced in the United States or a possession thereof. Inflation Adjustment Factor: The inflation adjustment factor for calendar year 2016 for qualified energy resources and refined coal is 1.5556. The inflation adjustment factor for Indian coal is 1.1934. Reference Prices: The reference price for calendar year 2016 for facilities producing electricity from wind is 4.50 cents per kilowatt hour. The reference prices for fuel used as feedstock within the meaning of section 45(c)(7)(A) asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:31 Apr 28, 2016 Jkt 238001 (relating to refined coal production) are $31.90 per ton for calendar year 2002 and $53.74 per ton for calendar year 2016. The reference prices for facilities producing electricity from closed-loop biomass, open-loop biomass, geothermal energy, solar energy, small irrigation power, municipal solid waste, qualified hydropower production, and marine and hydrokinetic renewable energy have not been determined for calendar year 2016. Phaseout Calculation: Because the 2016 reference price for electricity produced from wind (4.50 cents per kilowatt hour) does not exceed 8 cents multiplied by the inflation adjustment factor (1.5556), the phaseout of the credit provided in section 45(b)(1) does not apply to such electricity sold during calendar year 2016. Because the 2016 reference price of fuel used as feedstock for refined coal ($53.74) does not exceed $84.38 (which is the $31.90 reference price of such fuel in 2002 multiplied by the inflation adjustment factor (1.5556) and 1.7), the phaseout of the credit provided in section 45(e)(8)(B) does not apply to refined coal sold during calendar year 2016. Further, for electricity produced from closed-loop biomass, open-loop biomass, geothermal energy, solar energy, small irrigation power, municipal solid waste, qualified hydropower production, and marine and hydrokinetic renewable energy, the phaseout of the credit provided in section 45(b)(1) does not apply to such electricity sold during calendar year 2016. Credit Amount by Qualified Energy Resource and Facility and Refined Coal and Indian Coal: As required by section 45(b)(2), the 1.5 cent amount in section 45(a)(1), the 8 cent amount in section 45(b)(1), and the $4.375 amount in section 45(e)(8)(A) are each adjusted by multiplying such amount by the inflation adjustment factor for the calendar year in which the sale occurs. If any amount as increased under the preceding sentence is not a multiple of 0.1 cent, such amount is rounded to the nearest multiple of 0.1 cent. In the case of electricity produced in open-loop biomass facilities, small irrigation power facilities, landfill gas facilities, trash facilities, qualified hydropower facilities, and marine and hydrokinetic renewable energy facilities, section 45(b)(4)(A) requires the amount in effect under section 45(a)(1) (before rounding to the nearest 0.1 cent) to be reduced by one-half. Under the calculation required by section 45(b)(2), the credit for renewable electricity production for calendar year 2016 under section 45(a) is 2.3 cents per kilowatt hour on the sale of electricity produced from the PO 00000 Frm 00121 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 qualified energy resources of wind, closed-loop biomass, geothermal energy, and solar energy, and 1.2 cents per kilowatt hour on the sale of electricity produced in open-loop biomass facilities, small irrigation power facilities, landfill gas facilities, trash facilities, qualified hydropower facilities, and marine and hydrokinetic renewable energy facilities. Under the calculation required by section 45(b)(2), the credit for refined coal production for calendar year 2016 under section 45(e)(8)(A) is $6.810 per ton on the sale of qualified refined coal. The credit for Indian coal production under section 45(e)(10)(B) is $2.387 per ton on the sale of Indian coal.
