Estimated Total Annual Burden: 865 hours [96 respondents × 9 hours to complete form M–1 + 2 respondents × 0.3 = 0.6 rounded to 1 hour to complete form MP–1]. Background: Section 14123 of title 49 of the United States Code (U.S.C.) requires certain for-hire motor carriers of property, passengers, and household goods to file annual financial reports. The annual reporting program was implemented on December 24, 1938 (3 FR 3158), and it was subsequently transferred from the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) on January 1, 1996. The Secretary of DOT delegated to BTS the responsibility for the program on December 17, 1996 (61 FR 68162). Annual financial reports are filed on Form M (for-hire property carriers, including household goods carriers) and Form MP–1 (for-hire passenger carriers). Responsibility for collection of the reports was transferred from BTS to FMCSA on August 17, 2004 (69 FR 51009), and the regulations were redesignated as 49 CFR part 369 on August 10, 2006 (71 FR 45740). FMCSA has continued to collect carriers’ annual reports and to furnish copies of the reports requested under the Freedom of information Act. For-hire motor carriers (including interstate and intrastate) subject to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations are classified on the basis of their gross carrier operating revenues.1 Under the Financial and Operating Statistics (F&OS) program, FMCSA collects from Class I and Class II for-hire motor carriers balance sheet and income statement data along with information on safety needs, tonnage, mileage, employees, transportation equipment, and other related data. FMCSA may also ask carriers to respond to surveys concerning their operations. The data and information collected would be made publicly available and used by FMCSA to determine a motor carrier’s compliance with the F&OS program requirements prescribed at chapter III of title of 49 CFR part 369. FMCSA has created electronic forms that may be prepared, signed electronically, and submitted to FMCSA via https:// ask.fmcsa.dot.gov/app/ask/ in accordance with the Agency’s April 28, 2014 (79 FR 23306), rulemaking in RIN 2126–AB47, Electronic Signatures and Documents. On April 24, 2018 (83 FR 17894), FMCSA published a notice in the Federal Register with a 60-day public comment period to announce this proposed information collection request. The agency received no comments in response to this notice. Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed collection is necessary for the FMCSA to perform its functions; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways for the 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. 1 For purposes of the Financial and Operating Statistics (F&OS) program, carriers are classified into the following three groups: (1) Class I carriers are those having annual carrier operating revenues (including interstate and intrastate) of $10 million or more after applying the revenue deflator formula as set forth in Note A of 49 CFR 369.2; and (2) Class II carriers are those having annual carrier operating revenues (including interstate and intrastate) of at least $3 million, but less than $10 million after applying the revenue deflator formula as set forth in 49 CFR 369.2.

    Background: Section 14123 of title 49 of the United States Code 
(U.S.C.) requires certain for-hire motor carriers of property, 
passengers, and household goods to file annual financial reports. The 
annual reporting program was implemented on December 24, 1938 (3 FR 
3158), and it was subsequently transferred from the Interstate Commerce 
Commission (ICC) to the U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) 
Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) on January 1, 1996. The 
Secretary of DOT delegated to BTS the responsibility for the program on 
December 17, 1996 (61 FR 68162). Annual financial reports are filed on 
Form M (for-hire property carriers, including household goods carriers) 
and Form MP-1 (for-hire passenger carriers). Responsibility for 
collection of the reports was transferred from BTS to FMCSA on August 
17, 2004 (69 FR 51009), and the regulations were redesignated as 49 CFR 
part 369 on August 10, 2006 (71 FR 45740). FMCSA has continued to 
collect carriers' annual reports and to furnish copies of the reports 
requested under the Freedom of information Act. For-hire motor carriers 
(including interstate and intrastate) subject to the Federal Motor 
Carrier Safety Regulations are classified on the basis of their gross 
carrier operating revenues.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ For purposes of the Financial and Operating Statistics 
(F&OS) program, carriers are classified into the following three 
groups: (1) Class I carriers are those having annual carrier 
operating revenues (including interstate and intrastate) of $10 
million or more after applying the revenue deflator formula as set 
forth in Note A of 49 CFR 369.2; and (2) Class II carriers are those 
having annual carrier operating revenues (including interstate and 
intrastate) of at least $3 million, but less than $10 million after 
applying the revenue deflator formula as set forth in 49 CFR 369.2.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Under the Financial and Operating Statistics (F&OS) program, FMCSA 
collects from Class I and Class II for-hire motor carriers balance 
sheet and income statement data along with information on safety needs, 
tonnage, mileage, employees, transportation equipment, and other 
related data. FMCSA may also ask carriers to respond to surveys 
concerning their operations. The data and information collected would 
be made publicly available and used by FMCSA to determine a motor 
carrier's compliance with the F&OS program requirements prescribed at 
chapter III of title of 49 CFR part 369. FMCSA has created electronic 
forms that may be prepared, signed electronically, and submitted to 
FMCSA via https://ask.fmcsa.dot.gov/app/ask/ in accordance with the 
Agency's April 28, 2014 (79 FR 23306), rulemaking in RIN 2126-AB47, 
Electronic Signatures and Documents.
    On April 24, 2018 (83 FR 17894), FMCSA published a notice in the 
Federal Register with a 60-day public comment period to announce this 
proposed information collection request. The agency received no 
comments in response to this notice.
    Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of 
this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed 
collection is necessary for the FMCSA to perform its functions; (2) the 
accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways for the 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.
