II. Background On December 13, 2017, FMCSA published a notice announcing its decision to renew exemptions for six individuals from the epilepsy and seizure disorders prohibition in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(8) to operate a CMV in interstate commerce and requested comments from the public (82 FR 58681). The public comment period ended on January 12, 2018 and one comment was 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)(8). The physical qualification standard for drivers regarding epilepsy found in 49 CFR 391.41(b)(8) states that a person is physically qualified to drive a CMV if that person has no established medical history or clinical diagnosis of epilepsy or any other condition which is likely to cause the loss of consciousness or any loss of ability to control a CMV. In addition to the regulations, FMCSA has published advisory criteria to assist VerDate Sep<11>2014 22:07 Feb 13, 2018 Jkt 244001 Medical Examiners in determining whether drivers with certain medical conditions are qualified to operate a CMV in interstate commerce. [49 CFR part 391, APPENDIX A TO PART 391— MEDICAL ADVISORY CRITERIA, section H. Epilepsy: § 391.41(b)(8), paragraphs 3, 4, and 5.] III. Discussion of Comments FMCSA received one comment in this proceeding. The author wrote that exemptions to driving qualification tests should not be granted and that drivers should prove their ability to drive despite medical conditions. FMCSA interprets this comment as referring to necessity of drivers being required to demonstrate their ability to safely operate a commercial motor vehicle despite not meeting the physical qualification standards. The Agency only issues exemptions if the driver is likely to achieve a level of highway safety that is equivalent to, or granter than, the level if none were granted. Additionally, interstate commercial motor vehicle drivers who are granted medical exemptions must undergo the same driver qualification process as other interstate commercial motor vehicle operators. IV. Conclusion Based upon its evaluation of the six renewal exemption applications and the comment received, FMCSA announces its’ decision to exempt the following drivers from the epilepsy and seizure disorders prohibition in 49 CFR 391.41 (b)(8): As of November 6, 2017, and in accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315, the following six individuals have satisfied the renewal conditions for obtaining an exemption from the epilepsy and seizure disorders prohibition in the FMCSRs for interstate CMV drivers. (82 FR 58681): Christopher Bird, (OH) Ronald Bohr, (IA) Michael Breitbach, (IA) William H. Brown, (NC) Joseph D’Angelo, (NY) Stephen Stawinsky, (PA) The drivers were included in docket number FMCSA–2011–0389; FMCSA– 2012–0094; FMCSA–2013–0107; FMCSA–2014–0381; FMCSA–2015– 0116. Their exemptions are applicable as of November 6, 2017, and will expire on November 6, 2019. In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 31315, each exemption will be valid for two years from the effective date unless revoked earlier by FMCSA. The exemption will be revoked if the following occurs: (1) The person fails to comply with the terms and conditions PO 00000 Frm 00224 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 of the exemption; (2) the exemption has resulted in a lower level of safety than was maintained prior to being granted; or (3) continuation of the exemption would not be consistent with the goals and objectives of 49 U.S.C. 31136 and 31315.

OMB Control Number: 2127–0679. Type of Request: Renewal/New of an information collection. Abstract: The National 911 Profile Database is funded by the National 911 Program, which is housed within the Office of Emergency Medical Services at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, part of the U.S. Department of Transportation. The National 911 Program is proposing to continue to collect and aggregate information from State level reporting entities that can be used to measure the progress of 911 authorities across the country in upgrading their existing operations—and migrating to—digital, internet-Protocol-based emergency communication networks. The data will be maintained in a ‘‘National 911 Profile Database.’’ One of the objectives of the National 911 Program is to develop, collect, and disseminate information concerning practices, procedures, and technology used in the implementation of 911 services and to support 911 Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) and related State and local agencies for 911 deployment and operations. The National 911 Profile Database can be used to follow the progress of 911 authorities in enhancing their existing systems and implementing nextgeneration networks for more advanced systems. The information can also be used to identify ways in which the National 911 Program can support State and local 911 authorities in the transition process. Affected Public: Under this proposed effort, the National 911 Program would specifically request reporting entities to voluntarily collect and annually report the data described above utilizing a Web-based data collection tool. Reporting entities are State-level 911 program officials, and the data reported will reflect State-level aggregated data. Estimated Number of Respondents: The total maximum number of respondents is identified as 56, including the 50 States and the six U.S. Territories of Guam, U.S. Minor Outlying Islands, American Samoa, Mariana Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico. Frequency: The reporting entities will be requested to submit data annually relating to their State or territory, using the Web-based tool described above. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: NHTSA estimates that submitting responses to the questions included in the proposed survey instrument utilizing the Web-based tool would require an average of 98 hours per state to collect, aggregate and VerDate Sep<11>2014 22:07 Feb 13, 2018 Jkt 244001 submit. Estimating the maximum number of respondents to be 56, this would result in a total burden of 5,488 hours. The respondents would not incur any reporting costs from the information collection beyond the time it takes to gather the information, prepare it for reporting, and then populate the Webbased data collection tool. The respondents also would not incur any recordkeeping burden or recordkeeping costs from the information collection. The total estimated costs to respondents or record-keepers are based on the following: The total hour burden of the collection of information equaling 5,488 hours. Respondents will be State, territory, and tribal government management personnel. To estimate reasonable staff expenses to respond to this information collection, the Agencies reviewed the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Occupational Outlook Handbook and determined that the Administrative Services Manager description closely aligns with the positions of recipient staff responsible for completing this request. BLS lists a median salary of $86,100 annually, amounting to $41.40 per hour. There are no capital, start-up, or annual operation and maintenance costs involved in the collection of information. Total cost based on hour’s burden equals $227,203.20. Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspects of this information collection, including (a) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Department and whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Department’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

    Title: National 911 Profile Database.
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0679.
    Type of Request: Renewal/New of an information collection.
    Abstract: The National 911 Profile Database is funded by the 
National 911 Program, which is housed within the Office of Emergency 
Medical Services at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 
part of the U.S. Department of Transportation. The National 911 Program 
is proposing to continue to collect and aggregate information from 
State level reporting entities that can be used to measure the progress 
of 911 authorities across the country in upgrading their existing 
operations--and migrating to--digital, internet-Protocol-based 
emergency communication networks. The data will be maintained in a 
``National 911 Profile Database.''
    One of the objectives of the National 911 Program is to develop, 
collect, and disseminate information concerning practices, procedures, 
and technology used in the implementation of 911 services and to 
support 911 Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) and related State 
and local agencies for 911 deployment and operations. The National 911 
Profile Database can be used to follow the progress of 911 authorities 
in enhancing their existing systems and implementing next-generation 
networks for more advanced systems. The information can also be used to 
identify ways in which the National 911 Program can support State and 
local 911 authorities in the transition process.
    Affected Public: Under this proposed effort, the National 911 
Program would specifically request reporting entities to voluntarily 
collect and annually report the data described above utilizing a Web-
based data collection tool. Reporting entities are State-level 911 
program officials, and the data reported will reflect State-level 
aggregated data.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: The total maximum number of 
respondents is identified as 56, including the 50 States and the six 
U.S. Territories of Guam, U.S. Minor Outlying Islands, American Samoa, 
Mariana Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.
    Frequency: The reporting entities will be requested to submit data 
annually relating to their State or territory, using the Web-based tool 
described above.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: NHTSA estimates that 
submitting responses to the questions included in the proposed survey 
instrument utilizing the Web-based tool would require an average of 98 
hours per state to collect, aggregate and submit. Estimating the 
maximum number of respondents to be 56, this would result in a total 
burden of 5,488 hours. The respondents would not incur any reporting 
costs from the information collection beyond the time it takes to 
gather the information, prepare it for reporting, and then populate the 
Web-based data collection tool. The respondents also would not incur 
any recordkeeping burden or recordkeeping costs from the information 
collection. The total estimated costs to respondents or record-keepers 
are based on the following: The total hour burden of the collection of 
information equaling 5,488 hours. Respondents will be State, territory, 
and tribal government management personnel. To estimate reasonable 
staff expenses to respond to this information collection, the Agencies 
reviewed the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Occupational Outlook 
Handbook and determined that the Administrative Services Manager 
description closely aligns with the positions of recipient staff 
responsible for completing this request. BLS lists a median salary of 
$86,100 annually, amounting to $41.40 per hour. There are no capital, 
start-up, or annual operation and maintenance costs involved in the 
collection of information. Total cost based on hour's burden equals 
$227,203.20.
    Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspects of 
this information collection, including (a) whether the proposed 
collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of 
the functions of the Department and whether the information will have 
practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Department's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed information collection; (c) ways to enhance the 
quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and
