Federal Railroad Administration [Docket Number FRA–2018–0112] Petition for Waiver of Compliance Under part 211 of Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), this document provides the public notice that on December 4, 2018, the Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad (IHBR) and RJ Corman Railpower petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) for approval of modifications and substantive changes to an FRAapproved locomotive crashworthiness design standard as required under 49 CFR 229.207(c). FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2018– 0112. Specifically, Petitioners seek FRA’s approval and concurrence with substantive changes to an FRAapproved locomotive crashworthiness design standard for the IHBR SW 1500 fleet. The SW fleet was originally manufactured from 1966 to 1968 and is undergoing modification to operate on both diesel and compressed natural gas in a ‘‘dual-fuel’’ configuration. Once modified and approved, these locomotives would operate in switching service at IHBR. Because the locomotive modifications include a lengthening of the frame and the replacement of the operator cab, these changes require FRA’s approval and concurrence with 49 CFR 229.207(c) to be considered crashworthy.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Control Number: 2105–0551. Title: Reporting Requirements for Disability-Related Complaints. Type of Request: Renewal of information collections. Background: On July 8, 2003, the Office of the Secretary published a final rule that requires most certificated U.S. and foreign air carriers operating to, from and within the U.S. that conduct passenger-carrying service utilizing at least one large aircraft to record complaints that they receive alleging inadequate accessibility or discrimination on the basis of disability. The carriers must also categorize these complaints according to the type of disability and nature of complaint, prepare a summary report annually of the complaints received during the preceding calendar year, submit the report to the Department’s Aviation Consumer Protection Division, and retain copies of correspondence and records of action taken on the reported complaints for three years. The rule requires carriers to submit their annual report via the World Wide Web except if the carrier can demonstrate an undue burden by doing so and receives permission from the Department to submit it in an alternative manner. The first required report covered disabilityrelated complaints received by carriers during calendar year 2004, was due to the Department on January 31, 2005. Carriers have since submitted subsequent reports by the last Monday in January for the prior calendar year. The title, a description of the information collection and respondents, and the periodic reporting burden are set forth below for each of the information collected. (1) Requirement to record and categorize complaints received. Respondents: Certificated U.S. air carriers and foreign air carriers operating to and from the United States that conduct passenger-carrying service with at least one large aircraft. Number of Respondents: 177 (an average of the total number of respondents that reported over the past three years). Estimated Annual Burden on Respondents: 0–1,611 hours (96,660 minutes) a year for each respondent (estimated time to record and categorize each complaint (15 minutes) multiplied by the lowest number of complaints and the average of the highest number of complaints received per respondent over the past three years (0–6,444 complaints). PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 65393 Estimated Total Annual Burden: 8,148 hours (488,880 minutes) for all respondents (time to record and categorize each complaint (15 minutes) multiplied by the average total number of complaints received over the past three years (32,591) for all respondents). Frequency: 0–6,444 complaints (a range of the lowest number of complaints and an average of the highest number of complaints received over the past three years). (2) Requirement to prepare and submit annual report. Respondents: Certificated U.S. air carriers and foreign air carriers operating to and from the United States that conduct passenger-carrying service with at least one large aircraft. Number of Respondents: 177 (an average of the total number of respondents that reported over the past three years). Estimated Annual Burden on Respondents: 30 minutes a year per each respondent. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 88.5 hours (5,310 minutes) for all respondents (estimated annual burden [30 minutes] multiplied by the total number of respondents). Frequency: 1 report to DOT per year for each respondent. (3) Requirement to retain correspondences and records of action taken on all disability-related complaints. Respondents: Certificated U.S. air carriers and foreign air carriers operating to and from the United States that conduct passenger-carrying service with at least one large aircraft. Number of Respondents: 177 (an average of the total number of respondents that reported over the past three years). Estimated Annual Burden on Respondents: 0–537 hours (0–32,220 minutes) for each respondent (the estimated time it will take for each respondent to retain or save the correspondences and records of action taken on disability-related complaints (5 minutes) multiplied by the lowest number of complaints and the average highest number of complaints received per respondent over the past three years (0–6,444)). Estimated Total Annual Burden: 2,716 hours (162,955 minutes) for all respondents (the estimated time it will take for each respondent to retain or save the correspondences and records of action taken on disability-related complaints (5 minutes) multiplied by the average total number of complaints received over the past three years (32,591) for all respondents).
