Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 171 / Tuesday, September 4, 2018 / Notices Notice of updated schedule of standardized administrative fees. ACTION: On August 22, 2012,1 we announced in the Federal Register a schedule of standardized administrative fees we charge to the public. We charge these fees to recover our full costs when we provide information and related services for non-program purposes. We are announcing an update to the previously published schedule of standardized administrative fees.2 The updated standard fee schedule is part of our continuing effort to standardize fees for non-program information requests. Standard fees provide consistency and ensure we recover the full cost of supplying information when we receive a request for a purpose not directly related to the administration of a program under the Social Security Act (Act). DATES: The changes described above are applicable for requests we receive on or after October 1, 2018. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kristina Poist, Social Security Administration, Office of Finance, 6401 Security Boulevard, Baltimore, MD 21235–6401, (410) 597–1977.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 1106 of the Act and the Privacy Act 3 authorize the Commissioner of Social Security to promulgate regulations regarding agency records and information and to charge fees for providing information and related services. Our regulations and operating instructions identify when we will charge fees for information.4 Under our regulations, whenever we determine a request for information is for any purpose not directly related to the administration of the Social Security programs, we require the requester to pay the full cost of providing the information. New Information: We are required to review and update standardized administrative fees at least every two years. Based on the most recent cost analysis, the following table provides the new schedule of standardized administrative fees per request: sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: Copying an Electronic Folder $38 Copying a Paper Folder $75 1 77 FR 50757, Aug. 22, 2012.

Background: The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on June 14, 2018 (83 FR 27820). On June 27, 2018, the FAA published the final rule Regulatory Relief, Aviation Training devices; Pilot Certification, Training, and Pilot Schools; and Other Provisions (83 FR 30232). In that rule, the FAA is amending § 141.5(d) to allow part 141 pilot schools that hold training course approvals for special curricula courses to renew their certificates based on their students’ successful completion of an end-of-course test for these FAA approved courses. In that rule, the FAA further adjusts the number of pilot schools based on population changes, and to account for the change in burden associated with these new courses. We estimate that of the 31 new applications for pilot school certificates, 25% will have special curricula courses that will need to be accounted for in the passage rate required for issuance of a certificate in § 141.5(d). Of the 291 applications for renewal of pilot school certificates, approximately 25% would include special curricula courses that must now be accounted for in the passage rate for renewal of a certificate under § 141.5(d). We estimate that it would take .1 hours to add this special curricula course information to both initial and renewal applications. 8 new applications at .1 hours each = .8 hours 73 applications at .1 hours each (adding special curr.) = 7.3 hours 171.0 hours + 8.1 hours = 180 total burden hours The FAA is also making a burden adjustment to the number of pilot schools, increasing the population from 546 pilot schools to 581 pilot schools. Respondents: 581 pilot schools. Frequency: As needed for new applicants; every 24 months for renewals of existing pilot schools. VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:06 Aug 31, 2018 Jkt 244001 Estimated Average Burden per Response: 0.5 hours, + 0.1 hours for special curriculum course information (when applicable).

(CSXT) petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) for a waiver of compliance from certain provisions of the Federal railroad safety regulations contained at 49 CFR part 234. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2018–0069. CSXT seeks a waiver of compliance from 49 CFR 234.247, Purpose of inspections and tests; removal from service of relay or device failing to meet test requirements, to remove approximately 400 stored rail cars and certain railbound equipment from CSXT’s Illinois Subdivision, which is currently discontinued from service between milepost (MP) BC 244.7, near Flora, Clay County, Illinois, and MP BC 327.9, near Caseyville, St. Clair County, pursuant to the Surface Transportation Board’s issuance of two Discontinuance of Service Exemptions dated December 10, 2015 and January 9, 2017, respectively. CSXT notes that numerous communities have raised concerns and requested it remove the stored rail cars and rail-bound equipment. CSXT states that no revenue traffic has moved on the discontinued portion of the Illinois Subdivision since June of 2016. Because CSXT has no current intention of resuming revenue service on this Subdivision, CSXT seeks this relief to remove the cars and rail-bound equipment from its tracks as expeditiously as possible. Specifically, CSXT seeks relief to operate over nonfunctioning highway-rail grade crossings without making inspections PO 00000 Frm 00148 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and tests required in §§ 234.249 through 234.271.

    Title: Pilot Schools--FAR 141.
    Form Numbers: 8420-8.
    Type of Review: This is a renewal of an existing information 
collection.
    Background: The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment 
period soliciting comments on the following collection of information 
was published on June 14, 2018 (83 FR 27820). On June 27, 2018, the FAA 
published the final rule Regulatory Relief, Aviation Training devices; 
Pilot Certification, Training, and Pilot Schools; and Other Provisions 
(83 FR 30232). In that rule, the FAA is amending Sec.  141.5(d) to 
allow part 141 pilot schools that hold training course approvals for 
special curricula courses to renew their certificates based on their 
students' successful completion of an end-of-course test for these FAA 
approved courses. In that rule, the FAA further adjusts the number of 
pilot schools based on population changes, and to account for the 
change in burden associated with these new courses.
    We estimate that of the 31 new applications for pilot school 
certificates, 25% will have special curricula courses that will need to 
be accounted for in the passage rate required for issuance of a 
certificate in Sec.  141.5(d). Of the 291 applications for renewal of 
pilot school certificates, approximately 25% would include special 
curricula courses that must now be accounted for in the passage rate 
for renewal of a certificate under Sec.  141.5(d). We estimate that it 
would take .1 hours to add this special curricula course information to 
both initial and renewal applications.

8 new applications at .1 hours each = .8 hours
73 applications at .1 hours each (adding special curr.) = 7.3 hours
171.0 hours + 8.1 hours = 180 total burden hours

    The FAA is also making a burden adjustment to the number of pilot 
schools, increasing the population from 546 pilot schools to 581 pilot 
schools.
    Respondents: 581 pilot schools.
    Frequency: As needed for new applicants; every 24 months for 
renewals of existing pilot schools.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 0.5 hours, + 0.1 hours for 
special curriculum course information (when applicable).
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 31,837 total burden hours. 2,787 
total annual reporting burden hours, and 29,050 total annual 
recordkeeping burden hours.
