Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 81 / Friday, April 28, 2017 / Notices ‘‘Public Transportation Vehicle’’ means a vehicle that (A) provides designated public transportation (as defined in section 221 of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (42 U.S.C. 12141)) or provides public school transportation (to and from public or private primary, secondary, or tertiary schools); and (B)(i) is owned or operated by a public entity; (ii) is operated under a contract with a public entity; or (iii) is operated pursuant to a license by the Secretary or a State agency to provide motorbus or school vehicle transportation services to the public. Source: This term is defined in 23 U.S.C. 166(f)(6). ‘‘Serve/Serving the Public’’ means provision of service to the general public, including general or special service (including charter service) on a regular and continuing basis. Source: This term has a similar meaning as the term ‘‘designated public transportation’’ in Section 221 of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (42 U.S.C. 12141). ‘‘Toll Facility’’ means a toll highway, bridge, or tunnel or approach to the highway, bridge, or tunnel constructed under 23 U.S.C. 129(a). Source: This term has the same meaning as the term is given in 23 U.S.C. 129(a)(10)(E). C. Covered Facilities Subject to OTRB Equal Access asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Section 129 Facilities Section 1411(a) of the FAST Act amends 23 U.S.C. 129 to provide that, ‘‘An over-the-road bus that serves the public shall be provided access to a toll facility under the same rates, terms, and conditions as public transportation buses.’’ 23 U.S.C. 129(a)(9). A toll facility is defined in 23 U.S.C. 129(a)(10)(E) (as amended by the FAST Act) as: ‘‘a toll highway, bridge, or tunnel or approach to the highway, bridge, or tunnel constructed under [section 129(a)].’’ Facilities ‘‘constructed under’’ Section 129 includes both facilities subject to Section 129 tolling agreements executed prior to the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP–21)(Pub. L. 112–141) (which eliminated the statutory requirement for a Section 129 toll agreement), and facilities that have become (or will become) subject to Section 129 post-MAP–21 (which may, or may not, have a tolling Memorandum of Understanding with FHWA). This would include a facility that either uses Federal-aid funds on an existing toll facility in accordance with Section 129(a), or imposes tolls on a facility VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:38 Apr 27, 2017 Jkt 241001 constructed with Federal-aid funds pursuant to Section 129(a). Section 166 Facilities For HOV facilities under 23 U.S.C. 166, Section 1411(b) of the FAST Act added Section 166(b)(3)(C), which requires any authority that allows public transportation vehicles to use an HOV facility to provide equal access to the facility under the same rates, terms, and conditions for all public transportation vehicles and OTRBs serving the public. The FAST Act also added Section 166(b)(4)(C)(iii), which provides that if an authority operates HOT lanes that allow vehicles not otherwise exempt under 23 U.S.C. 166(b) to pay a toll to use the facility, the authority must ensure that OTRBs serving the public are provided access to the facility under the same rates, terms, and conditions as public transportation buses. Under 23 U.S.C. 166(f)(2), the term ‘‘HOV facility’’ means a high occupancy vehicle facility. There are no exclusions or exceptions under this definition based on Federal-aid participation in the construction or operation of the HOV facility. Therefore, FHWA believes amendments made by Section 1411 of the FAST Act are applicable to all Section 166 HOV facilities, regardless of Federal-aid participation in the project. D. Covered Section 129 Facilities List The Section 129 Covered Facilities list can be found on the docket for this Federal Register Notice. Federal-aid toll facilities that were constructed under other Federal tolling authorities and not subject to Section 1411 of the FAST Act are also included in the docket list of covered facilities for reference. Other Federal tolling authorities include the Surface Transportation and Uniform Relocation Assistance Act of 1987 (Pub. L. 100–17) and the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (Pub. L. 102–240). The FHWA invites comment on the accuracy and completeness of the list of facilities subject to OTRB equal access. E. Request for Comment The FHWA is seeking public comment on the following specific sections of this Federal Register Notice: (1) Applicable definitions for implementing Section 1411 of the FAST Act, (2) Covered facilities subject to OTRB equal access, and (3) OTRB Section 129 Covered Facilities list. The OTRB Section 129 Covered Facilities list can be found on the docket for this Federal Register Notice. PO 00000 Frm 00134 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 19785 Commenters are encouraged to address any or all of the areas listed above. Commenters are also encouraged to provide specific information on toll facilities subject to OTRB requirements that are not included on the Section 129 Covered Facilities-OTRB list. Commenters may also describe why they believe certain facilities should be included in the Section 129 Covered Facilities-OTRB list. This description should include such information as the facility name, location, route designation, and owner/operator. Commenters are also encouraged to focus on matters within the control of FHWA. (Matters not within the control of FHWA include such items as HOV occupancy requirements at specific facilities, setting of toll rates, or Federal Transit Administration laws.) The FHWA will consider public comment before adopting its final guidance on OTRBs. Issued on: April 24, 2017. Walter C. Waidelich, Jr., Acting Deputy Administrator, Federal Highway Administration.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NHTSA has requested emergency Paperwork Reduction Act clearance for its confidential business information collection (2127–0025) given the agency’s current collection expires April 30, 2017, and use of this collection is essential to the mission of the agency. NHTSA published a 60-day renewal for this collection on December 28, 2016 (81 FR 95729), and received no comments.

With an estimated eight hours of preparation to collect and provide the information for each request, at an assumed rate of $24.92 per hour, the annual estimated cost of collecting and preparing the information necessary for 500 complete requests for confidential treatment is about $99,680 (8 hours of preparation × 500 requests × $24.92). Adding in a postage cost of $3,325 (500 requests at a cost of $6.65 for postage (priority flat rate envelope from USPS)), we estimate that it will cost $103,005 per year for persons to prepare and submit the information necessary to satisfy the confidential business information provisions of 49 CFR part 512.

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

[Docket Number NHTSA-2016-0131]


Reports, Forms and Recordkeeping Requirements

AGENCY: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), U.S. 
Department of Transportation.

ACTION: Notice and request for comments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 
U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) this notice announces NHTSA has submitted to the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for emergency clearance 
and review for existing information collection 2127-0025. Approval of 
this collection is essential to the mission of the agency.
    While NHTSA has requested a temporary emergency clearance for this 
collection, the agency is also in the process of requesting a full 
clearance for this collection and has already published a 30-day 
Federal Register notice requesting comment. This notice repeats that 
request for comments.

DATES: Comments on the already published request for comments must be 
received on or before May 22, 2017. We

[[Page 19786]]

have requested that OMB take action on the emergency collection by 
April 30, 2017.

ADDRESSES: Send comments, by May 22, 2017, to the Office of Information 
and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725 17th 
Street NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention: NHTSA Desk Officer.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Michael Kuppersmith, National Highway 
Traffic Safety Administration, Office of the Chief Counsel (NCC-0010), 
(202) 366-5263, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., Washington, DC 20590.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NHTSA has requested emergency Paperwork 
Reduction Act clearance for its confidential business information 
collection (2127-0025) given the agency's current collection expires 
April 30, 2017, and use of this collection is essential to the mission 
of the agency. NHTSA published a 60-day renewal for this collection on 
December 28, 2016 (81 FR 95729), and received no comments. NHTSA 
published a 30-day notice for this collection on April 21, 2017 (82 FR 
18825), and the comment period remains open until May 22, 2017. The 
agency again requests any comments from the public on this request by 
that date.
    NHTSA expects that it will receive approximately 500 requests for 
confidentiality per year. With an estimated eight hours of preparation 
to collect and provide the information for each request, at an assumed 
rate of $24.92 per hour, the annual estimated cost of collecting and 
preparing the information necessary for 500 complete requests for 
confidential treatment is about $99,680 (8 hours of preparation x 500 
requests x $24.92). Adding in a postage cost of $3,325 (500 requests at 
a cost of $6.65 for postage (priority flat rate envelope from USPS)), 
we estimate that it will cost $103,005 per year for persons to prepare 
and submit the information necessary to satisfy the confidential 
business information provisions of 49 CFR part 512.
    Comments are invited on: Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the Department, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; the accuracy of the Department's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility 
and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize 
the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including 
the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology. A comment to OMB is most effective if OMB 
receives it by May 22, 2017.

    Issued in Washington, DC, under authority delegated in 49 CFR 
1.95.

Acting Deputy Administrator, NHTSA.
