Office hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., E.T., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: Section 103 of the ICC Termination Act of 1995 (ICCTA) enacted 49 U.S.C. 13908, which required the Secretary of Transportation (Secretary) to propose regulations to replace four current identification and registration systems with a single, online, Federal system—the Unified Registration System (URS). The Unified Carrier Registration Act of 2005, subtitle C of title IV of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU) [Pub. L. 109–59, 119 Stat. 1714, August 10, 2005] modified the requirements for a unified registration system by amending § 13908. In particular, SAFETEA–LU repealed the Single State Registration System (SSRS), one of the four systems identified in § 13908, and replaced it with the Unified Carrier Registration Agreement. It also modified the requirement that fees collected under the new system cover the costs of operating and upgrading the registration by placing limitations on certain fees that the Agency could charge. Section 4304 of SAFETEA–LU reiterated the congressional requirement for a single, Federal online system to replace the four individual systems identified under 49 U.S.C. 13908. This consolidation simplifies current Federal registration processes and makes data on interstate motor carriers, property brokers, freight forwarders, and other regulated entities more accessible. The URS applies to virtually every motor carrier, property broker, freight forwarder, cargo tank facility, and intermodal equipment provider that is required to register with the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT). This information collection supports the DOT Strategic Goal of Safety. It will streamline the existing registration process and ensure that FMCSA can more efficiently track motor carriers, freight forwarders, brokers, and other entities regulated by the Agency. The information on the on-line Form MCSA–1 will be used by FMCSA to identify its regulated entities, to help prioritize the Agency’s activities, to aid in assessing the safety outcomes of those activities and for statistical purposes. The FMCSA will collect the information electronically through on-line forms. The information is currently being collected through a series of forms, which may be filed on-line or on paper. Every interstate motor carrier operating commercial motor vehicles is required to register with FMCSA to obtain a E:\FR\FM\10JNN1.SGM 10JNN1

agreement dated April 5, 2016, has agreed to grant Union Pacific 
Railroad Company (UP) overhead trackage rights over approximately 41.3 
miles of railroad between milepost 1.6, near Kansas City, Mo., and 
milepost 42.9, near Paola, Kan., on BNSF's Fort Scott Subdivision.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ A redacted version of the Agreement between UP and BNSF was 
filed with the notice of exemption. UP simultaneously filed a motion 
for a protective order to protect the confidential and commercially 
sensitive information contained in the unredacted version of the 
Agreement, which UP submitted under seal in this proceeding. That 
motion will be addressed in a separate decision.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The purpose of the proposed transaction is to allow UP to continue 
moving trains between Paola and Kansas City, as an alternative to UP's 
own route, thereby providing for increased efficiency in operations.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ UP states that it obtained trackage rights over the rail 
line as successor to the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad Company 
(MKT). MKT was granted authority to acquire the trackage rights from 
Burlington Northern Railroad Company in Missouri-Kansas-Texas 
Railroad--Trackage Rights--Burlington Northern Railroad, FD 30672 
(ICC served July 8, 1985).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    UP may consummate the transaction on or after June 24, 2016, the 
effective date of the exemption (30 days after the verified notice of 
exemption was filed).
    As a condition to this exemption, any employees affected by the 
trackage rights will be protected by the conditions imposed in Norfolk 
& Western Railway--Trackage Rights--Burlington Northern, Inc., 354 
I.C.C. 605 (1978), as modified in Mendocino Coast Railway--Lease & 
Operate--California Western Railroad, 360 I.C.C. 653 (1980).
    This notice is filed under 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(7). If the notice 
contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab 
initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may 
be filed at any time. The filing of a petition to revoke will not 
automatically stay the effectiveness of the exemption. Petitions for
