ACTION: Notice and request for comments. AGENCY: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), this notice announces that FRA is forwarding the renewal of the information collection requirements (ICRs) abstracted below to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and comment. The ICRs describe the nature of the information collections and expected burdens. The Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the ICRs was published on May 3, 2016. DATES: Comments must be submitted on or before September 16, 2016.

These telephone numbers are not toll-free. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3520 (1995), and its implementing regulations, 5 CFR part 1320, require Federal agencies to issue two notices seeking public comment on information collection activities before OMB may approve paperwork packages. See 44 U.S.C. 3506, 3507; 5 CFR 1320.5, 1320.8(d)(1), and 1320.12. On May 3, 2016, FRA published a 60-day notice in the Federal Register soliciting comment on ICRs for which FRA is seeking OMB approval. See 81 FR 26619. FRA received no comments in response to that notice. Before OMB decides whether to approve these proposed ICRs, it must provide 30 days for public comment. See 44 U.S.C. 3507(b), 5 CFR 1320.12(d). Federal law requires OMB to approve or disapprove paperwork packages between 30 and 60 days after the 30-day notice is published. See 44 U.S.C. 3507 (b)–(c); 5 CFR 1320.12(d); see also 60 FR 44978, 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. OMB believes the 30-day notice informs the regulated community to file relevant comments and affords the agency adequate time to digest public comments before it renders a decision. See 60 FR 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. Therefore, respondents should submit their respective comments to OMB within 30 days of publication to best ensure their full consideration. See 5 CFR 1320.12(c); see also 60 FR 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. The summary below describes the nature of the ICRs and expected burdens. FRA is submitting the renewal request for OMB clearance the PRA requires. Title: Filing of Dedicated Cars. OMB Control Number: 2130–0502. Abstract: Title 49 CFR part 215 contains standards for freight car safety and prescribes certain conditions railroads must follow to move freight cars in dedicated service. Dedicated service means the exclusive assignment of railroad cars to the transportation of freight between specified points under the conditions defined in § 215.5(d), including stenciling, or otherwise displaying, in clear legible letters on each side of the car body the words ‘‘Dedicated Service.’’ A railroad must PO 00000 Frm 00132 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 54917 identify those cars in a written report to FRA before the railroad assigns the cars to dedicated service. The railroad must file that report with FRA not less than 30 days before the cars operate in dedicated service. FRA uses the information collected under § 215.5(d) to determine the number of railroads affected, the number and type of cars involved, the commodities being carried, and the territorial and speed limits within which the cars will be operated. FRA reviews these reports to determine if the equipment is safe to operate and if the operation qualifies for dedicated service. The information collected indicates to FRA and State inspectors the particular or ‘‘dedicated’’ cars are in special service and that certain restrictions apply to their movement under part 215. FRA inspectors may cite cars not in compliance for violations. Railroads also use the information collected to provide identification and control so dedicated cars remain in the prescribed service. Type of Request: Extension without change of a currently approved information collection. Affected Public: Businesses (Railroads). Form(s): N/A. Total Annual Estimated Burden: 4 hours. Total Annual Estimated Responses: 4. Title: Special Notice for Repairs. OMB Control Number: 2130–0504. Abstract: Under 49 CFR part 216, FRA and State inspectors may issue a Special Notice for Repairs to notify railroads in writing of an unsafe condition involving a locomotive, car, or track. The railroad must notify FRA in writing when the equipment is returned to service or the track restored to a condition permitting operations at speeds authorized for a higher class, specifying the repairs completed. FRA and State inspectors use this information to remove from service freight cars, passenger cars, and locomotives until they can be restored to a serviceable condition. They also use this information to reduce the maximum authorized speed on a section of track until repairs can be made. Type of Request: Extension without change of a currently approved information collection. Affected Public: Businesses (Railroads). Form(s): Form FRA F 6180.8; Form FRA F6180.8a. Total Annual Estimated Burden: 20 hours. Total Annual Estimated Responses: 72. Title: Rear-End Marking Devices. OMB Control Number: 2130–0523. E:\FR\FM\17AUN1.SGM 17AUN1
