Approved Agency Information Collection Activities, 13720-13721 [2017-05053]

Download as PDF 13720 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 48 / Tuesday, March 14, 2017 / Notices The Summary Section in the current Quarterly PTC Progress Report, approved through June 30, 2017, asks railroads to report route miles in ‘‘Testing or Revenue Service Demonstration.’’ However, that does not directly indicate whether or not the railroad has satisfied the above criteria because, for example, those route miles might refer to a combination of route miles in field testing and route miles in RSD, and also it does not provide any information about the number of territories where the railroad has initiated RSD and how many territories are required to have operations governed by a PTC system. Similarly, the drop-down menu in Section 4 regarding the overall current status of track segments has a ‘‘Testing’’ option, which provides only an overview of whether that railroad is currently doing either field testing or RSD in the track segment, but does not differentiate between field testing and RSD, as there might be various stages of testing occurring in a particular track segment. Rather than substantially changing the existing Summary Section and Section 4 of the form, and thus requiring railroads to deviate from the procedures and formulas they already have in place for quarterly reporting, FRA proposes simply adding one new row to the Summary Section and leaving the rest of the form and fields unchanged. Specifically, to address the request from Congressional staffers, FRA proposes adding a new row in the Summary Section entitled, ‘‘Territories Where Revenue Service Demonstration Has Been Initiated.’’ The table headings, ‘‘Cumulative Quantity Completed to Date’’ and ‘‘Total Quantity Required for PTC Implementation’’ would remain in place in the Summary Section. FRA proposes adding a footnote after the word ‘‘Territories’’ in the new row to define a territory as ‘‘an entire installation/track segment as identified in the railroad’s PTCIP (e.g., a track segment, territory, subdivision, district, etc.),’’ consistent with 49 U.S.C. 20157(a)(3)(B)(vi), 49 CFR part 236, subpart I, and other footnotes in the quarterly form. FRA estimates the additional burden for this new row would be approximately thirty minutes on average for Class I, Class II, large passenger, and medium passenger railroads and approximately fifteen minutes on average for Class III, terminal, and small passenger railroads. The burden is low because it is a highlevel question that would require a railroad to state only the number of territories where it has initiated RSD and the number of territories required to have operations governed by a PTC system, both of which are readily known by and available to respondent railroads. III. Overview of Information Collection The associated collection of information is summarized below. FRA will submit this information collection request to OMB for regular clearance as required by the PRA. Title: Quarterly Positive Train Control Progress Report. OMB Control Number: 2130–0553.

FRA notes that the 21.60-hour estimate is an average for all railroads. FRA estimated the quarterly reporting burden is approximately 40.5 hours for the 11 Class I and large passenger railroads per quarterly form, approximately 27.5 hours for the 11 Class II and medium passenger railroads per quarterly form, and approximately 7.25 hours for the 19 Class III, terminal, and small passenger railroads per quarterly form. Total Estimated Annual Responses for Form FRA F 6180.165: 164. Total Estimated Annual Burden for Form FRA F 6180.165: 3,543 hours. Total Estimated Annual Responses for Entire Information Collection: 147,776. Total Estimated Annual Burden for Entire Information Collection: 3,126,102. Status: Regular Review. Under 44 U.S.C. 3507(a) and 5 CFR 1320.5(b), FRA informs all interested parties that it may not conduct or sponsor, and a respondent is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
