These transactions may create agreements with interchange commitments. If the interchange commitments limit the future interchange of traffic with third parties, then certain information must be disclosed to the Board about those commitments. 49 CFR 1121.3(d), 1150.33(h), 1150.43(h), 1180.4(g)(4).

A collection of information, which is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c), includes agency requirements that persons submit reports, keep records, or provide information to the agency, third parties, or the public. Section 3507(b) of the PRA requires, concurrent with an agency’s submitting a collection to OMB for approval, a 30-day notice and comment period through publication in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information.

    Needs and Uses: As mandated by Congress, persons seeking to 
construct, acquire or operate a line of railroad and railroads seeking 
to abandon or to discontinue operations over a line of railroad or, in 
the case of two or more railroads, to consolidate their interests 
through merger or a common-control arrangement are required to file an 
application for prior approval and authority with the Board. See 49 
U.S.C. 10901-03, 11323-26. Under 49 U.S.C. 10502, persons may seek an 
exemption from many of the application requirements of sections 10901-
03 and 11323-26 by filing with the Board a petition for exemption or 
notice of exemption in lieu of an application. The collection by the

Description of Collection 2

    Title: Disclosure of Rail Interchange Commitments.
    OMB Control Number: 2140-0016.
    STB Form Number: None.
    Type of Review: Merger.
    Respondents: Noncarriers and carriers seeking an exemption to 
acquire (through purchase or lease) or to operate a rail line, if the 
proposed transaction would create an interchange commitment.
    Number of Respondents: Four.
    Estimated Time per Response: Eight hours.
    Frequency: On occasion.
    Total Burden Hours (annually including all respondents): 32 hours.
    Total ``Non-hour Burden'' Cost: None identified. Filings may be 
submitted electronically to the Board.
    Needs and Uses: Under 49 U.S.C. 10502, noncarriers and carriers may 
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 
information must be disclosed to the Board about those commitments. 49 
CFR 1121.3(d), 1150.33(h), 1150.43(h), 1180.4(g)(4). The collection of 
this information facilitates the case-specific review of interchange 
commitments and enables the Board's monitoring of their usage 
generally.
    Under the PRA, a federal agency that conducts or sponsors a 
collection of information must display a currently valid OMB control 
number. A collection of information, which is defined in 44 U.S.C. 
3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c), includes agency requirements that persons 
submit reports, keep records, or provide information to the agency, 
third parties, or the public. Section 3507(b) of the PRA requires, 
concurrent with an agency's submitting a collection to OMB for 
approval, a 30-day notice and comment period through publication in the 
Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information.
