Consistent with the requirements of Executive Order (E.O.) 13771, Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs, and E.O. 13777, Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda, TSA is also requesting comments on the extent to which this request for information could be modified to reduce the burden on respondents. Information Collection Requirement OMB Control Number 1652–0034; Law Enforcement Officer Flying Armed Training. TSA is requesting approval for the extension of the collection of this information to comply with 49 CFR 1544.219, which requires Federal LEOs, full-time territorial, tribal, municipal, county or state LEOs who are direct employees of government agencies, and authorized railroad police officers to complete the LEOs Flying Armed training course in order to fly armed. The course is a non-tactical overview of the conditions under which an officer may fly armed and the required conduct and duties of the LEO while flying armed. This collection permits TSA to collect identifying information from law enforcement agencies requesting the LEO Flying Armed training course materials. The process begins when a representative from a law enforcement agency electronically requests the LEO Flying Armed training course material via the TSA Flying While Armed website (https://www.tsa.gov/travel/lawenforcement). The fillable form, which is submitted to TSA electronically, must contain: full name of the officer, title, phone number, email address, employing department, work address, supervisor’s name, supervisor’s title, supervisor’s contact information, the agency’s originating agency identifier (ORI), an affirmation that the officer/ agency meets the requirements set forth in 49 CFR 1544.219, and a brief VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:25 Jan 23, 2018 Jkt 244001 narrative detailing the agency’s operational need to fly armed. Once the fillable form is completed, TSA, through its Office of Training and Development (OTD), receives a notification via email. OTD vets the request to ensure that all of the required information has been submitted and that the agency has a current operational need to fly armed. If OTD determines that the requesting agency meets the standard set forth in 49 CFR 1544.219, they electronically send a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) to the requesting agency. Once OTD receives the signed NDA, they will electronically send the LEO Flying Armed training course materials to the requesting agency. OTD keeps an electronic record of each agency that they have sent LEO Flying Armed training course material to, including a point of contact (POC) for that agency. If an issue arises during the screening and verification process regarding the authenticity of an agency that requests training materials, no training materials will be supplied until that issue has either been confirmed or resolved, and a record of such is maintained. Upon completion of the training, the LEO who has been authorized by his or her agency to fly armed presents his or her credentials and other required documentation at the airport in order to fly armed. A Transportation Security Officer verifies all pertinent information onsite. Based on current data, TSA estimates there are approximately 2,000 respondents on an annual basis. At most, each agency spends approximately 5 minutes to provide the information TSA needs to confirm the law enforcement agencies are eligible to receive the training. This amounts to 2000 agencies multiplied by 5 minutes equals 166.6 hours (2000 agencies × 5 min = 10,000 min [166.6 hrs.]) for a total annual hour burden of 167 hours. Dated: January 19, 2018.

The interest rate for debentures issued under these other provisions with respect to a loan or mortgage committed or endorsed during the 6-month period beginning January 1, 2018, is 23⁄4 percent.

Information Collection Requirement

    OMB Control Number 1652-0034; Law Enforcement Officer Flying Armed 
Training. TSA is requesting approval for the extension of the 
collection of this information to comply with 49 CFR 1544.219, which 
requires Federal LEOs, full-time territorial, tribal, municipal, county 
or state LEOs who are direct employees of government agencies, and 
authorized railroad police officers to complete the LEOs Flying Armed 
training course in order to fly armed. The course is a non-tactical 
overview of the conditions under which an officer may fly armed and the 
required conduct and duties of the LEO while flying armed. This 
collection permits TSA to collect identifying information from law 
enforcement agencies requesting the LEO Flying Armed training course 
materials.
    The process begins when a representative from a law enforcement 
agency electronically requests the LEO Flying Armed training course 
material via the TSA Flying While Armed website (https://www.tsa.gov/travel/law-enforcement). The fillable form, which is submitted to TSA 
electronically, must contain: full name of the officer, title, phone 
number, email address, employing department, work address, supervisor's 
name, supervisor's title, supervisor's contact information, the 
agency's originating agency identifier (ORI), an affirmation that the 
officer/agency meets the requirements set forth in 49 CFR 1544.219, and 
a brief narrative detailing the agency's operational need to fly armed. 
Once the fillable form is completed, TSA, through its Office of 
Training and Development (OTD), receives a notification via email. OTD 
vets the request to ensure that all of the required information has 
been submitted and that the agency has a current operational need to 
fly armed. If OTD determines that the requesting agency meets the 
standard set forth in 49 CFR 1544.219, they electronically send a non-
disclosure agreement (NDA) to the requesting agency. Once OTD receives 
the signed NDA, they will electronically send the LEO Flying Armed 
training course materials to the requesting agency. OTD keeps an 
electronic record of each agency that they have sent LEO Flying Armed 
training course material to, including a point of contact (POC) for 
that agency. If an issue arises during the screening and verification 
process regarding the authenticity of an agency that requests training 
materials, no training materials will be supplied until that issue has 
either been confirmed or resolved, and a record of such is maintained.
    Upon completion of the training, the LEO who has been authorized by 
his or her agency to fly armed presents his or her credentials and 
other required documentation at the airport in order to fly armed. A 
Transportation Security Officer verifies all pertinent information 
onsite. Based on current data, TSA estimates there are approximately 
2,000 respondents on an annual basis. At most, each agency spends 
approximately 5 minutes to provide the information TSA needs to confirm 
the law enforcement agencies are eligible to receive the training. This 
amounts to 2000 agencies multiplied by 5 minutes equals 166.6 hours 
(2000 agencies x 5 min = 10,000 min [166.6 hrs.]) for a total annual 
hour burden of 167 hours.
