II. Background On April 21, 2017, FMCSA published a notice announcing its decision to renew exemptions for 82 individuals from the vision requirement in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10) to operate a CMV in interstate commerce and requested comments from the public (82 FR 18818). The public comment period ended on May 22, 2017, and no comments were received. As stated in the previous notice, FMCSA has evaluated the eligibility of these applicants and determined that renewing these exemptions would achieve a level of safety equivalent to or greater than the level that would be achieved by complying with the current regulation 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10). The physical qualification standard for drivers regarding vision found in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10) states that a person is physically qualified to driver a CMV if that person: Has distant visual acuity of at least 20/40 (Snellen) in each eye without corrective lenses or visual acuity separately corrected to 20/40 (Snellen) or better with corrective lenses, distant binocular acuity of a least 20/ 40 (Snellen) in both eyes with or without corrective lenses, field of vision of at least 70° in the horizontal meridian in each eye, and the ability to recognize the colors of traffic signals and devices showing red, green, and amber.

Estimated Time per Response: 18 minutes. Expiration Date: October 31, 2017. Frequency of Response: Annually. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 122 hours (408 responses × 18 minutes per response/60 = 122.4 rounded to 122). Section 14123 of title 49 of the United States Code (U.S.C.) requires that the Secretary of Transportation collect annual financial reports from certain for-hire motor carriers of passengers. All Class I for-hire motor carriers of passengers, carriers with gross annual operating revenues of $5 million or more, are required to complete and file a Motor Carrier Annual Report Form MP–1 for Motor Carriers of Passengers (Form MP–1). See 49 CFR 369.3(a) and 369.4(a). The Form MP–1 annual report will be used to collect financial, operating, equipment and employment data from individual motor carriers of passengers. The data collected will be available to users in its original form. The data are not used by the Department of Transportation, and, based on a comment to a proposed rule finalized on December 17, 2013 (78 FR 76241), the data are no longer used by trucking associations.

The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) of the U.S. Department of Commerce uses the data to inform the national annual inputoutput and Gross Domestic Product (GDP) estimates. BEA uses the data to prepare estimates of industry output and provide details on inputs to supplement the information on motor carriers of passengers collected by the U.S. Census Bureau. In response to the March 16, 2017 60day Federal Register notice (82 FR 14103), FMCSA received two comments questioning why the Agency continues to require the annual report filing by Class I passenger motor vehicles, despite FMCSA’s statement that the data is not used by the Agency.

to renew exemptions for 82 individuals from the vision requirement in 
49 CFR 391.41(b)(10) to operate a CMV in interstate commerce and 
requested comments from the public (82 FR 18818). The public comment 
period ended on May 22, 2017, and no comments were received.
    As stated in the previous notice, FMCSA has evaluated the 
eligibility of these applicants and determined that renewing these 
exemptions would achieve a level of safety equivalent to or greater 
than the level that would be achieved by complying with the current 
regulation 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10).
    The physical qualification standard for drivers regarding vision 
found in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(10) states that a person is physically 
qualified to driver a CMV if that person:

    Has distant visual acuity of at least 20/40 (Snellen) in each 
eye without corrective lenses or visual acuity separately corrected 
to 20/40 (Snellen) or better with corrective lenses, distant 
binocular acuity of a least 20/40 (Snellen) in both eyes with or 
without corrective lenses, field of vision of at least 70[deg] in 
the horizontal meridian in each eye, and the ability to recognize 
the colors of traffic signals and devices showing red, green, and 
amber.

III. Discussion of Comments

    FMCSA received no comments in this preceding.

VI. Conclusion

    As of May 7, 2017, and in accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 
31315, the
