We are soliciting public comments to permit the Department to: • Evaluate whether the proposed information collection is necessary for the proper functions of the Department. • Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the time and cost burden for this proposed collection, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used. • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected. • Minimize the reporting burden on those who are to respond, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. 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 US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) was established through enactment of the United States Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Act of 2003 (Pub. L. 108–25), as amended by the Tom Lantos and Henry J. Hyde United States Global Leadership Against HIV/ AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Reauthorization Act of 2008 (Pub L. 110–293) (HIV/AIDS Leadership Act) to support the global response to HIV/ AIDS. Data are collected from implementing partners in countries with PEPFAR programs using a standard tool (DS–4213) via an electronic web-based interface into which users directly upload data. These data are analyzed to produce mean and range in expenditures by partner per result/ achievement for all PEPFAR program VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:55 Sep 13, 2016 Jkt 238001 areas. These analyses then feed into partner and program reviews at the country level for monitoring and evaluation on an ongoing basis. Summaries of these data provide key information about program costs under PEPFAR on a global level. Applying expenditure results will improve strategic budgeting, identification of efficient means of delivering services, accuracy in defining program targets, and will inform allocation of resources to ensure the program is accountable and using public funds for maximum impact. Methodology: Data will be collected in a web-based interface available to all partners receiving funds under PEPFAR. After implementing EA over the last few years, we learned that implementing partners (IPs) prefer the Microsoft Excel template based data collection process. By being able to download a template, prime IPs responsible for completing the submission are more effectively able to collaborate quickly with other key personnel and coordinate with other partners to enter the data. This approach also proves helpful where internet connectivity is not strong. After completing the Excel template, IPs upload the data to an automated system that further checks the data entered for quality and completeness. Automated checks reduce the time needed by IPs to complete the data cleaning process. Ozinga Bros., Inc. (Ozinga Bros.), a noncarrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption for authority to continue in control of Chicago Port Railroad Company (CPRR), a Class III rail carrier. According to Ozinga Bros., in 2006, CPRR obtained authority to operate as a common carrier.1 At the time, CPRR was, and now is, owned by Mokena Illinois Railroad (MIRR), a Class III rail carrier.2 MIRR, in turn, was, and is, controlled by Ozinga Bros. Ozinga Bros.’ ownership interest in MIRR, and its indirect ownership interest in CPRR, was not disclosed at the time of the CPRR transaction. Ozinga Bros. asserts that neither it nor MIRR sought Board authority for Ozinga Bros. to control CPRR when CPRR obtained its common carrier authority in 2006, because neither was aware that federal regulatory authority was required for Ozinga Bros. to control, directly or indirectly, multiple rail carriers. Ozinga Bros. states that the present notice of exemption serves to correct this inadvertent regulatory oversight so that it will possess the necessary regulatory authority to control the two railroads in its corporate family (CPRR and MIRR). The effective date of the exemption is September 28, 2016 (30 days after the verified notice of exemption was filed). As clarified in a letter filed on September 8, 2016, the applicant represents that: (1) The rail lines of CPRR and MIRR do not connect with each other or any railroads in their corporate family; (2) the continuance of control is not part of a series of anticipated transactions that would connect the railroads with each other or any railroads in their corporate family; and (3) the transaction does not involve a Class I carrier. Therefore, the proposed transaction is exempt from the prior approval requirements of 49 U.S.C. 11323. See 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(2). Under 49 U.S.C. 10502(g), the Board may not use its exemption authority to relieve a rail carrier of its statutory obligations to protect the interests of its employees. Section 11326(c), however, does not provide for labor protection for transactions under 11324 and 11325 that involve only Class III rail carriers. Accordingly, the Board may not impose labor protective conditions here, because all of the carriers involved are Class III carriers. If the verified 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. Stay petitions must be filed no later than September 21, 2016 (at least seven days before the exemption becomes effective).

[Docket No. FD 36059]


Ozinga Bros., Inc.--Continuance in Control Exemption--Chicago 
Port Railroad Company

    Ozinga Bros., Inc. (Ozinga Bros.), a noncarrier, has filed a 
verified notice of exemption for authority to continue in control of 
Chicago Port Railroad Company (CPRR), a Class III rail carrier. 
According to Ozinga Bros., in 2006, CPRR obtained authority to operate 
as a common carrier.\1\ At the time, CPRR was, and now is, owned by 
Mokena Illinois Railroad (MIRR), a Class III rail carrier.\2\ MIRR, in 
turn, was, and is, controlled by Ozinga Bros. Ozinga Bros.' ownership 
interest in MIRR, and its indirect ownership interest in CPRR, was not 
disclosed at the time of the CPRR transaction. Ozinga Bros. asserts 
that neither it nor MIRR sought Board authority for Ozinga Bros. to 
control CPRR when CPRR obtained its common carrier authority in 2006, 
because neither was aware that federal regulatory authority was 
required for Ozinga Bros. to control, directly or indirectly, multiple 
rail carriers. Ozinga Bros. states that the present notice of exemption 
serves to correct this inadvertent regulatory oversight so that it will 
possess the necessary regulatory authority to control the two railroads 
in its corporate family (CPRR and MIRR).

FD 34808 (STB served Jan. 12, 2006).
    \2\ See Mokena Ill. R.R.--Construction Exemption--Will Cty., 
Ill., FD 31680 (ICC served Oct. 4, 1990, and Dec. 3, 1990).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The effective date of the exemption is September 28, 2016 (30 days 
after the verified notice of exemption was filed).
    As clarified in a letter filed on September 8, 2016, the applicant 
represents that: (1) The rail lines of CPRR and MIRR do not connect 
with each other or any railroads in their corporate family; (2) the 
continuance of control is not part of a series of anticipated 
transactions that would connect the railroads with each other or any 
railroads in their corporate family; and (3) the transaction does not 
involve a Class I carrier. Therefore, the proposed transaction is 
exempt from the prior approval requirements of 49 U.S.C. 11323. See 49 
CFR 1180.2(d)(2).
    Under 49 U.S.C. 10502(g), the Board may not use its exemption 
authority to relieve a rail carrier of its statutory obligations to 
protect the interests of its employees. Section 11326(c), however, does 
not provide for labor protection for transactions under 11324 and 11325 
that involve only Class III rail carriers. Accordingly, the Board may 
not impose labor protective conditions here, because all of the 
carriers involved are Class III carriers.
    If the verified 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. Stay petitions must be filed no later than September 21, 
2016 (at least seven days before the exemption becomes effective).
    An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to Docket No. 
FD 36059, must be filed with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 E
