Abstract of proposed collection: The Secretary of State is authorized to issue U.S. passports under 22 U.S.C. 211a. The Department of State, Passport Services administers the U.S. passport issuance program and operates passport agencies and application adjudication centers throughout the United States. As part of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004, the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative required the Secretary of Homeland Security and the Secretary of State to implement a plan to require all U.S. citizen and non-citizen nationals to present a passport and/or other sufficient documentation when entering the United States. This resulted in an increase in demand for U.S. passports. The Passport Demand Forecasting Survey requests information from the general public about the demand for U.S. passports, anticipated travel, and the demographic profile of the respondent. This voluntary survey is conducted on a monthly basis using responses from a randomly selected but nationally representative sample of U.S. nationals ages 18 and older. The information obtained from the survey is used to monitor and project the demand for U.S. passport books and U.S. passport cards. The Passport Demand Forecasting Survey aids the Department of State, Passport Services in making decisions about staffing, resource allocation, and budget planning. The Department of State published a 60-day notice in the Federal Register to solicit public comments on January 19, VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:22 Jun 27, 2017 Jkt 241001 2017 (82 FR 6684). One comment was received that was not substantive. Methodology: The Passport Demand Forecasting Study uses monthly surveys that will gather data from a national representative sample of U.S. nationals. Survey delivery methodologies can include mail, internet/web, telephone, and mix-mode surveys to ensure the CA/PPT reaches the appropriate audience and leverages the best research method to obtain valid responses. The survey data will cover an estimated 48,000 respondents annually. Brenda S. Sprague, Deputy Assistant Secretary, for Passport Services, Department of State.

BILLING CODE 4710–36–P SURFACE TRANSPORTATION BOARD Indexing the Annual Operating Revenues of Railroads The Surface Transportation Board (STB) is publishing the annual inflationadjusted index factors for 2016. These factors are used by the railroads to adjust their gross annual operating revenues for classification purposes. This indexing methodology ensures that railroads are classified based on real business expansion and not on the effects of inflation. Classification is important because it determines the extent to which individual railroads must comply with STB reporting requirements. The STB’s annual inflation-adjusted factors are based on the annual average Railroad Freight Price Index developed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The STB’s deflator factor is used to deflate revenues for comparison with established revenue thresholds. The base year for railroads is 1991.
