Background

    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

companies, consultants, law firms, academia, trade publications and 
others may use the data to assess industry growth and its impact on the 
economy, to identify industry changes that may affect national 
transportation, and to monitor company financial stability. The Bureau 
of Economic Analysis (BEA) of the U.S. Department of Commerce uses the 
data to inform the national annual input-output 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 60-day 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

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.
