The attacks of September 11, 2001, and the destruction of Hurricane Katrina made apparent the need for emergency response radio systems that can interoperate, regardless of which organization manufactured the equipment. Per congressional direction, DHS and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) developed the P25 CAP to improve the emergency response community’s confidence in purchasing land mobile radio (LMR) equipment built to P25 LMR standards. Equipment suppliers provide the information to publicly attest to their products’ compliance with a specific set of P25 standards.

Information Collection Requirement

Purpose and Description of Data Collection

    The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has broad 
statutory authority for ``security in all modes of transportation . . . 
including security responsibilities . . . over modes of transportation 
that are exercised by the Department of Transportation.'' \1\ 
Consistent with this authority, TSA is the Federal agency responsible 
for ``assess[ing] the security of each surface transportation mode and 
evaluat[ing] the effectiveness and efficiency of current Federal 
Government surface transportation security initiatives.'' \2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See section 101 of the Aviation and Transportation Security 
Act (ATSA), Public Law 107-71, 115 Stat. 597 (Nov. 19, 2001), 
codified at 49 U.S.C. 114 (ATSA created TSA and established the 
agency's primary federal role to enhance security for all modes of 
transportation). Section 403(2) of the Homeland Security Act of 2002 
(HSA), Public Law 107-296, 116 Stat. 2135 (Nov. 25, 2002), 
transferred all functions related to transportation security, 
including those of the Secretary of Transportation and the Under 
Secretary of Transportation for Security, to the Secretary of 
Homeland Security. Pursuant to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) 
Delegation Number 7060.2, the Secretary delegated to the 
Administrator, subject to the Secretary's guidance and control, the 
authority vested in the Secretary with respect to TSA, including 
that in sec. 403(2) of the HSA.
    \2\ See Executive Order (E.O.) 13416, section 3(a) (Dec. 5, 
2006); 49 U.S.C. 114(d)(3) and (4).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Section 1983 of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 (H.R. 302, Pub. 
L. 115-254, 132 Stat. 3186, Oct. 5, 2018) (the ``Act'') directs the 
Secretary of Homeland Security to conduct a survey \3\ of public and 
private stakeholders responsible for securing surface transportation 
assets regarding resource challenges including unmet security needs. 
The Act also requires reporting to the appropriate congressional 
committees regarding the survey results and the efforts of DHS to 
address any identified security vulnerabilities.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ The provision reads:
    (a) In General.--Not later than 120 days after the date of 
enactment of this Act, the Secretary shall begin conducting a survey 
of public and private stakeholders responsible for securing surface 
transportation assets regarding resource challenges, including the 
availability of Federal funding, associated with securing such 
assets that provides an opportunity for respondents to set forth 
information on specific unmet needs.
    (b) Report.--Not later than 120 days after beginning the survey 
required under subsection (a), the Secretary shall report to the 
appropriate committees of Congress regarding the results of such 
survey and the Department of Homeland Security's efforts to address 
any identified security vulnerabilities.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is the fiduciary 
agent and Federal awarding agency for grant funding appropriate to DHS 
for surface transportation security enhancements. As memorialized in a 
memorandum of understanding between FEMA and TSA, TSA supports the 
grant process for surface transportation through numerous activities, 
including stakeholder outreach and soliciting feedback for program 
improvements from surface transportation security partners.
    Consistent with the above authorities and agreements with FEMA, TSA 
is now seeking approval to conduct the survey. TSA estimates that 641 
industry stakeholders will submit a response to the survey, which will 
take approximately 2 hours to complete. TSA estimates the total annual 
burden for this one-time collection is 1,282.8 hours.

Use of Results

    The information collected in this one-time survey will be used as 
follows:
    1. To develop a baseline understanding of surface transportation 
operators' security budgets and of the gap, if any, between available 
funding and stakeholders' perceived security needs.
    2. To identify resources across the Department available to 
stakeholders to address any identified security vulnerabilities.
    3. To report to leadership in TSA, DHS, and Congress on those 
resource needs, in order to inform future Federal budget formulation 
and grant making decisions.
    4. To inform TSA's development of security strategies, priorities, 
and programs, as well as stakeholder outreach efforts, that ensure the 
most effective application of available resources.
