Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 239 / Tuesday, December 13, 2016 / Notices pmangrum on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES statement for the purpose of assisting the Commission’s exploration of one or more of the issues raised by the State, local government body, or Indian Tribe in the pre-hearing filings described above. The decision of whether to request the presence of a representative of a State, local government body, or Indian Tribe at the evidentiary hearing to make a statement and/or answer Commission questions is solely at the Commission’s discretion. The Commission’s request will specify the issue or issues that the representative should be prepared to address. States, local governments, or Indian Tribes should be aware that this evidentiary hearing is separate and distinct from the NRC’s contested hearing process. Issues within the scope of contentions that have been admitted or contested issues pending before the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board or the Commission in a contested proceeding for a COL application are outside the scope of the uncontested proceeding for that COL application. In addition, although States, local governments, or Indian Tribes participating as described above may take any position they wish, or no position at all, with respect to issues regarding the COL application or the NRC staff’s associated environmental review that do fall within the scope of the uncontested proceeding (i.e., issues that are not within the scope of admitted contentions or pending contested issues), they should be aware that many of the procedures and rights applicable to the NRC’s contested hearing process due to the inherently adversarial nature of such proceedings are not available with respect to this uncontested hearing. Participation in the NRC’s contested hearing process is governed by 10 CFR 2.309 (for persons or entities, including States, local governments, or Indian Tribes, seeking to file contentions of their own) and 10 CFR 2.315(c) (for interested States, local governments, and Indian Tribes seeking to participate with respect to contentions filed by others). Participation in this uncontested hearing does not affect the right of a State, local government, or Indian Tribe to participate in the separate contested hearing process. OFFICE OF PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT POSTAL REGULATORY COMMISSION Cancellation of Submission for Review: Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Application, 3206–0082 Market Dominant Price Adjustment [Docket No. R2017–1; Order No. 3648] U.S. Office of Personnel Management. ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is cancelling its proposal to reinstate, with revisions, an expired information collection, the Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Application. OPM has determined that this application is not an information collection subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act. OPM will not publish a 30-day notice or submit the PMF Application for clearance by the Office of Management and Budget before administering the application as part of the PMF examination. ADDRESSES: Address all comments concerning this notice to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, PMF Program Office, 1900 E St. NW., Room 6500, Washington, DC 20415, or send via electronic mail to pmf@opm.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Send via electronic mail to pmf@ opm.gov. SUMMARY: OPM originally posted a 60-day notice to solicit comment on its proposal to reinstate, with revisions, an expired information collection, the PMF Application. This notice was published in the Federal Register (81 FR 4405) on July 6, 2016, and no comments were received. OPM has determined that the annual PMF application and assessment process falls within the exception of 5 CFR 1320.3(h)(7), which establishes that ‘‘[e]xaminations designed to test the aptitude, abilities, or knowledge of the persons tested and the collection of information for identification or classification in connection with such examinations’’ do not constitute information collections subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act. Therefore, OPM will not publish a 30-day notice or submit the PMF Application for clearance by the Office of Management and Budget before administering the application. The original ICR approval (3206– 0082) expired in 02/2016 and is now cancelled. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 7th day of December, 2016.

Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed information collection is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the RRB’s estimate of the burden of the collection of the information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden related to the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. 1. Title and purpose of information collection: Withholding Certificate for Railroad Retirement Monthly Annuity Payments; OMB 3220–0149. The Internal Revenue Code requires that all payers of tax liable private pensions to U.S. citizens or residents: PO 00000 Frm 00107 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (1) Notify each recipient at least concurrent with initial withholding that the payer is, in fact, withholding benefits for tax liability and that the recipient has the option of electing not to have the payer withhold, or to withhold at a specific rate; (2) withhold benefits for tax purposes (in the absence of the recipient’s election not to withhold benefits); and (3) notify all beneficiaries, at least annually, that they have the option to change their withholding status or elect not to have benefits withheld. The RRB provides Form RRB–W4P, Withholding Certificate for Railroad Retirement Payments, to its annuitants to exercise their withholding options. Completion of the form is required to obtain or retain a benefit. One response is requested of each respondent. No changes are proposed to Form RRB W– 4P. The RRB estimates that 25,000 annuitants utilize Form RRB W–4P annually. The completion time for Form RRB W–4P varies depending on individual circumstances. The estimated average completion time for Form RRB W–4P is 39 minutes for recordkeeping, 24 minutes for learning about the law or the form, and 59 minutes for preparing the form. 2. Title and purpose of information collection: Earnings Information Request; OMB 3220–0184. Under Section 2 of the Railroad Retirement Act, an annuity is not payable, or is reduced for any month(s) in which the beneficiary works for a railroad or earns more than prescribed amounts. The provisions relating to the reduction or non-payment of annuities by reason of work are prescribed in 20 CFR 230. The RRB utilizes Form G–19–F, Earnings Information Request, to obtain earnings information that either had not been previously reported or erroneously reported by a beneficiary. Currently the claimant is asked to enter the date they stopped working, if applicable. If a respondent fails to complete the form, the RRB may be unable to pay them benefits. One response is requested of each respondent. The RRB proposes the implementation of an Internet-based equivalent Form G–19F. No other changes are proposed. E:\FR\FM\13DEN1.SGM 13DEN1
