seek an exemption from the prior approval requirements of sections 
10901, 10902, and 11323 to acquire (through purchase or lease) or to 
operate a rail line. These transactions may create agreements with 
interchange commitments. If the interchange commitments limit the 
future interchange of traffic with third parties, then certain

submit reports, keep records, or provide information to the agency, 
third parties, or the public. Under 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A), federal 
agencies are required to provide, prior to an agency's submitting a 
collection to OMB for approval, a 60-day notice and comment period 
through publication in the Federal Register concerning each proposed 
collection of information, including each proposed extension of an 
existing collection of information.
