(This telephone number is not toll free.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3520, and its implementing regulations, 5 CFR part 1320, require Federal agencies to issue two notices seeking public comment on information collection activities before OMB may approve paperwork packages. 44 U.S.C. 3506, 3507; 5 CFR 1320.5, 1320.8(d)(1), and 1320.12. On March 29, 2017, FRA published a 60-day notice in the Federal Register soliciting comment on the ICR for which it is now seeking OMB approval. See 82 FR 15417. FRA received no comments in response to this notice. Before OMB decides whether to approve this proposed collection of information, it must provide 30 days for public comment. 44 U.S.C. 3507(b); 5 CFR 1320.12(d). Federal law requires OMB to approve or disapprove paperwork packages between 30 and 60 days after the 30-day notice is published. 44 U.S.C. 3507(b)–(c); 5 CFR 1320.12(d); see also 60 FR 44978, 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. OMB believes the 30-day notice informs the regulated community to file relevant comments and affords the agency adequate time to digest public comments before it renders a decision. 60 FR 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. Therefore, respondents should submit their respective comments to OMB SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00098 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 34569 within 30 days of publication to best ensure having their full effect. 5 CFR 1320.12(c); see also 60 FR 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. The summary below describes the ICR and its expected burden. FRA is submitting the new request for clearance by OMB as the PRA requires. Title: Workforce Development (WFD) Survey. OMB Control Number: 2130–NEW. Abstract: The FRA has statutory responsibility to ensure the safety of railroad operations as prescribed in the Federal Railroad Safety Act of 1970 (49 U.S.C. 20103). To conduct safe railroad operations, the workforce must have the requisite skills to operate equipment and technologies. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the FRA to promote workforce development policy and standards to ensure the workforce has the necessary skills and talent to conduct safe railroad operations. Due to an increasingly dynamic and maturing workforce combined with changing skills requirements imposed by newly introduced technologies, there is an increasing risk in not having the necessary talent pools to fill critical railroad operational positions. In 2011, FRA published the first Railroad Industry Modal Profile: An Outline of the Railroad Industry Workforce Trends, Challenges, and Opportunities, which provided a comprehensive overview of the railroad industry workforce as of December 31, 2008. This document is available to the public through the FRA Web site. The Railroad Industry Modal Profile was a response to the DOT National Transportation Workforce Development Initiative that required each DOT Operating Administration to produce an analysis of its industry workforce. The prevailing workforce concerns during the early stages of the DOT National Transportation Workforce Development Initiative were the large number of retirement-eligible employees in transportation related fields and the national shortage of science, technology, engineering, and math graduates. Since the railroad industry had done very little hiring in the late 1980s and throughout most of the 1990s, the retirement-eligible population became quite large, even beyond that of most other industries and transportation modes (each of which were also grappling with similar retirement population concerns). These concerns create risk in maintaining a viable workforce, and to take effective and efficient action to minimize these risks, FRA requires trustworthy information on current WFD strategies and challenges.

Background

    FMCSA registers for-hire motor carriers of regulated commodities 
under 49 U.S.C. 13902, surface freight forwarders under 49 U.S.C. 
13903, and property brokers under 49 U.S.C. 13904. Each registration is 
effective from the date specified under 49 U.S.C. 13905(c). Subsection 
(d) of 49 U.S.C. 13905 also provides that on application of the 
registrant, the Secretary may amend or revoke a registration, and hence 
the registrant's operating authority. Form OCE-46 allows registrants to 
apply voluntarily for revocation of their operating authority or parts 
thereof. If the registrant fails to maintain evidence of the required 
level of insurance coverage on file with FMCSA, its

operating authority will be revoked involuntarily. Although the effect 
of both types of revocation is the same, some carriers prefer to 
request voluntary revocation. For various business reasons, a 
registrant may request revocation of some part, but not all, of its 
operating authority.
    This information collection supports the DOT strategic goal of 
safety by enabling registrants to voluntarily request revocation of 
operating authority, or some part of that authority. A completed Form 
OCE-46 is filed with FMCSA by the registrant for requesting that all,

contained on the form is used by FMCSA in deciding on the revocation 
request. The use of Form OCE-46 has proven to be an easy and effective 
means by which a registrant can request revocation of its operating 
authority.
    Form OCE-46 is filed by registrants on a voluntary, and for the 
most part, one-time basis. It calls for a very limited amount of 
information to identify the registrant and the scope of its request. 
Thus, the information collection itself has not been automated, 
although the information collected is ultimately entered into an 
automated database. The burden associated with this ICR is being 
revised due to an anticipated increase in the estimated number of 
annual filings from 3,000 to 3,501 and to account for the corresponding 
cost of notarizing and mailing Form OCE-46.
    Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of 
this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed 
collection is necessary for FMCSA to perform its functions; (2) the 
accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways for FMCSA to enhance the 
quality, usefulness, and clarity of the collected information; and (4) 
ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the quality of 
the collected information.
