SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: FERC–729, Electric Transmission Facilities. OMB Control No.: 1902–0238. Abstract: This information collection implements the Commission’s mandates under EPAct 2005 Section 1221 which authorizes the Commission to issue permits under FPA Section 216(b) for electric transmission facilities and the Commission’s delegated responsibility to coordinate all other federal authorizations under FPA Section 216(h). The related FERC regulations seek to develop a timely review process for siting of proposed electric transmission facilities. The regulations provide for (among other things) an extensive pre-application process that will facilitate maximum participation from all interested entities and individuals to provide them with a reasonable opportunity to present their views and recommendations, with respect to the need for and impact of the facilities, early in the planning stages of the proposed facilities as required under FPA Section 216(d). Additionally, FERC has the authority to issue a permit to construct electric transmission facilities if a state has withheld approval for more than a year or has conditioned its approval in such a manner that it will not significantly reduce transmission congestion or is not economically feasible.1 FERC envisions that, under certain circumstances, the Commission’s review of the proposed facilities may take place after one year of the state’s review. Under Section 50.6(e)(3) the Commission will not accept applications until one year after the state’s review and then from applicants who can demonstrate that a state may withhold or condition approval of proposed facilities to such an extent that the facilities will not be constructed.2 In cases where FERC’s jurisdiction rests on FPA section 216(b)(1)(C),3 the pre-filing process should not commence until one year after the relevant State applications have been filed. This will give states one full year to process an application without any intervening Federal proceedings, including both the prefiling and application processes. Once that year is complete, an applicant may seek to commence FERC’s pre-filing process. Thereafter, once the pre-filing process is complete, the applicant may submit its application for a construction permit. Type of Respondent: Electric transmission facilities. Estimate of Annual Burden: 4 The Commission estimates the annual public reporting burden for the information collection as: FERC–729: ELECTRIC TRANSMISSION FACILITIES Number of respondents Annual number of responses per respondent Total number of responses Average burden & cost per response 5 Total annual burden hours & total annual cost (1) (2) (1) * (2) = (3) (4) (3) * (4) = (5) Electric Transmission Facilities ............................................ khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Comments: Comments are invited on: (1) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden and cost of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information collection; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. 1 FPA section 216(b)(1)(C). Commission will not issue a permit authorizing construction of the proposed facilities until, among other things, it finds that the state has, in fact, withheld approval for more than a year or had so conditioned its approval. 3 In all other instances (i.e. where the state does not have jurisdiction to act or otherwise to consider 2 The VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:56 Apr 26, 2019 Jkt 247001 1 1 Dated: April 23, 2019.
