Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection. Background: The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on March 11, 2019 (84 FR 8779) and this is the 30-day notice. Codification of certain U.S. Transportation laws at 49 U.S.C., repealed the Airport and Airway Improvement Act of 1982, as amended, and the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act of 1979, as amended, and re-codified them without substantive change at Title 49 U.S.C., which is referred to as the ‘‘Act.’’ The Act provides funding for airport planning and development projects at airports included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS). The Act also authorizes funds for noise compatibility planning and to carry out noise compatibility programs. The information required by this program is necessary to protect the Federal interest in safety, efficiency, and utility of the airport. Data is collected to meet report requirements of 2 CFR part 200 for certifications and representations, financial management and performance measurement. Respondents: Approximately 13,000 applications. Frequency: Information is collected on occasion. Estimated Average Burden per Response: Approximately 9 Hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden: Approximately 118,000 hours. Issued in Washington, DC, on May 24, 2019.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Robert Brogan, Information Collection Clearance Officer, Office of Railroad Safety, Regulatory Analysis Division, Federal Railroad Administration, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, Washington, DC 20590 (telephone: (202) 493–6292) or SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00083 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Ms. Kim Toone, Information Collection Clearance Officer, Office of Information Technology, Federal Railroad Administration, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, Washington, DC 20590 (telephone: (202) 493–6132). The PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3520, and its implementing regulations, 5 CFR part 1320, require Federal agencies to provide 60-days’ notice to the public to allow comment on information collection activities before seeking OMB approval of the activities. See 44 U.S.C. 3506, 3507; 5 CFR 1320.8 through 1320.12. Specifically, FRA invites interested parties to comment on the following ICRs regarding: (1) Whether the information collection activities are necessary for FRA to properly execute its functions, including whether the activities will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of FRA’s estimates of the burden of the information collection activities, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used to determine the estimates; (3) ways for FRA to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information being collected; and (4) ways for FRA to minimize the burden of information collection activities on the public, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. See 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A); 5 CFR 1320.8(d)(1). FRA believes that soliciting public comment will promote its efforts to reduce the administrative and paperwork burdens associated with the collection of information that Federal regulations mandate. In summary, FRA reasons that comments received will advance three objectives: (1) Reduce reporting burdens; (2) ensure that it organizes information collection requirements in a ‘‘user-friendly’’ format to improve the use of such information; and (3) accurately assess the resources expended to retrieve and produce information requested. See 44 U.S.C. 3501. The summaries below describe the ICRs that FRA will submit for OMB clearance as the PRA requires: Title: Designation of Qualified Persons. OMB Control Number: 2130–0511. Abstract: The collection of information is used to prevent the unsafe movement of defective freight cars. Railroads are required to inspect freight cars for compliance and to determine restrictions on the movements of defective cars; qualified inspectors are necessary to perform this task.

Total Estimated Annual Dollar Cost Equivalent: $4,158,412. Title: Roadway Worker Protection. OMB Control Number: 2130–0539. Abstract: On June 10, 2016, FRA amended its Roadway Worker Protection (RWP) regulation (see 81 FR 37840) to resolve interpretative issues that had arisen since the original 1996 promulgation of that rule. In particular, this final rule adopted certain terms, resolved miscellaneous interpretive issues, codified certain FRA Technical Bulletins, adopted new requirements governing redundant signal protections and the movement of roadway maintenance machinery over signalized non-controlled track, and amended certain qualification requirements for roadway workers. This final rule also deleted three outdated incorporations by reference of industry standards in FRA’s Bridge Worker Safety Standards, and cross referenced the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s regulations on the same point. Under the information collection associated with the RWP rule (49 CFR part 214), FRA collects a variety of information. To ensure compliance with the rule’s requirements, FRA collects data on affected railroads’ on-track safety programs to determine that railroads have policies, procedures, and practices in place that protect roadway workers as they go about doing their daily jobs in a dangerous environment. Railroads are required to provide ontrack safety manuals to all roadway workers that they can readily consult as a guide when an issue arises as to how to complete a work assignment while maintaining complete safety. Under the regulation, railroads are required to provide initial and recurrent training to roadway workers on their on-track safety program and the procedures to be followed to perform their daily work assignments. This includes training for roadway workers who work on adjacent track and the appropriate practices and procedures they must follow. FRA Total annual burden hours Total annual dollar cost equivalent CFR section collects data from railroads on training through the records that they are required to keep. Additionally, FRA collects information on violations of workplace safety on Form FRA F 6180.119. FRA uses violation information to make changes that endanger railroad workers. Overall, FRA uses the information that it collects under this regulation to monitor and enforce requirements relating to the safety of roadway workers and ensure that railroads fulfill their responsibilities to make roadway workers environment secure and free from unnecessary and avoidable hazards.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Robert Brogan, Information Collection Clearance Officer, Office of Railroad Safety, Regulatory Analysis Division, Federal Railroad Administration, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, Room W33–497, Washington, DC 20590 (telephone: (202) 493–6292); or Ms. Kim Toone, Information Collection Clearance Officer, Office of Administration, Office of Information Technology, Federal Railroad Administration, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, Room W34–212, Washington, DC 20590 (telephone: (202) 493–6132). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3520, and its implementing regulations, 5 CFR part 1320, require Federal agencies to issue two notices seeking public comment on information collection activities before OMB may approve paperwork packages. See 44 U.S.C. 3506, 3507; 5 CFR 1320.8 through 1320.12. On February 22, 2019, FRA published a 60-day notice in the Federal Register soliciting comment on the ICRs for which it is now seeking OMB approval. See 84 FR 5807. FRA received no comments in response to this notice. Before OMB decides whether to approve these proposed collections of information, it must provide 30 days for public comment. Federal law requires OMB to approve or disapprove paperwork packages between 30 and 60 days after the 30-day notice is published. 44 U.S.C. 3507(b)–(c); 5 CFR 1320.12(d); see also 60 FR 44978, 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. OMB believes the 30-day notice informs the regulated community to file relevant comments and affords the agency adequate time to digest public comments before it renders a decision. 60 FR 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. Therefore, respondents should submit their respective comments to OMB within 30 days of publication to best ensure having their full effect.

The summaries below describe the ICRs that FRA will submit for OMB clearance as the PRA requires: Title: Safety Appliance Standards Guidance Checklist Forms. OMB Control Number: 2130–0565. Abstract: Sample car/locomotive inspections are performed upon request as a courtesy to the car manufacturers to ensure that the equipment is built in accordance with the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). Car manufacturers that desire to have FRA review their equipment for compliance with the CFR may submit their request to FRA for review at least 60 days prior to initial construction. Although a sample car inspection is not required, most car manufacturers today request the inspection. By helping ensure that rolling stock equipment is built compliant with the CFR, the sample car inspection program reduces the safety risk to railroad employees, passengers, and the general public. In an ongoing effort to conduct more thorough and effective inspections of freight railroad equipment and to further enhance safe rail operations, FRA has developed a group of guidance checklist forms that facilitate railroad, rail car owner, and rail equipment manufacturer compliance with 49 CFR part 231, Railroad Safety Appliance Standards.

[Docket No. FRA-2019-0004-N-5]


Proposed Agency Information Collection Activities; Comment 
Request

AGENCY: Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), U.S. Department of 
Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Notice of information collection; request for comment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) and its 
implementing regulations, FRA seeks approval of the Information 
Collection Requests (ICRs) abstracted below. Before submitting these 
ICRs to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for approval, FRA is 
soliciting public comment on specific aspects of the activities 
identified below.

DATES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments on or before 
July 29, 2019.

ADDRESSES: Submit written comments on the ICRs activities by mail to 
either: Mr. Robert Brogan, Information Collection Clearance Officer, 
Office of Railroad Safety, Regulatory Analysis Division, Federal 
Railroad Administration, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, Washington, DC 
20590; or Ms. Kim Toone, Information Collection Clearance Officer, 
Office of Information Technology, Federal Railroad Administration, 1200 
New Jersey Avenue SE, Washington, DC 20590. Commenters requesting FRA 
to acknowledge receipt of their respective comments must include a 
self-addressed stamped postcard stating, ``Comments on OMB Control 
Number 2130-XXXX,'' (the relevant OMB control number for each ICR is 
listed below) and should also include the title of the ICR. 
Alternatively, comments may be faxed to (202) 493-6216 or (202) 493-
6497, or emailed to Mr. Brogan at [email protected], or Ms. Toone 
at [email protected]. Please refer to the assigned OMB control number 
in any correspondence submitted. FRA will summarize comments received 
in response to this notice in a subsequent notice and include them in 
its information collection submission to OMB for approval.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Robert Brogan, Information 
Collection Clearance Officer, Office of Railroad Safety, Regulatory 
Analysis Division, Federal Railroad Administration, 1200 New Jersey 
Avenue SE, Washington, DC 20590 (telephone: (202) 493-6292) or Ms. Kim 
Toone, Information Collection Clearance Officer, Office of Information 
Technology, Federal Railroad Administration, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, 
Washington, DC 20590 (telephone: (202) 493-6132).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501-3520, and its 
implementing regulations, 5 CFR part 1320, require Federal agencies to 
provide 60-days' notice to the public to allow comment on information 
collection activities before seeking OMB approval of the activities. 
See 44 U.S.C. 3506, 3507; 5 CFR 1320.8 through 1320.12. Specifically, 
FRA invites interested parties to comment on the following ICRs 
regarding: (1) Whether the information collection activities are 
necessary for FRA to properly execute its functions, including whether 
the activities will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of FRA's 
estimates of the burden of the information collection activities, 
including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used to 
determine the estimates; (3) ways for FRA to enhance the quality, 
utility, and clarity of the information being collected; and (4) ways 
for FRA to minimize the burden of information collection activities on 
the public, including the use of automated collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology. See 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A); 5 
CFR 1320.8(d)(1).
    FRA believes that soliciting public comment will promote its 
efforts to reduce the administrative and paperwork burdens associated 
with the collection of information that Federal regulations mandate. In 
summary, FRA reasons that comments received will advance three 
objectives: (1) Reduce reporting burdens; (2) ensure that it organizes 
information collection requirements in a ``user-friendly'' format to 
improve the use of such information; and (3) accurately assess the 
resources expended to retrieve and produce information requested. See 
44 U.S.C. 3501.
    The summaries below describe the ICRs that FRA will submit for OMB 
clearance as the PRA requires:
    Title: Designation of Qualified Persons.
    OMB Control Number: 2130-0511.
    Abstract: The collection of information is used to prevent the 
unsafe movement of defective freight cars. Railroads are required to 
inspect freight cars for compliance and to determine restrictions on 
the movements of defective cars; qualified inspectors are necessary to 
perform this task.

    Abstract: Section 4 of the Rail Safety Improvement Act of 1988 
(RSIA), Public Law 100-342, 102 Stat. 624 (June 22, 1988), later 
amended and re-codified by Public Law 103-272, 108 Stat. 874 (July 5, 
1994), required FRA to issue regulations to establish any necessary 
program for certifying or licensing locomotive engineers. The 
collection of information is used by FRA to ensure that railroads 
employ and properly train qualified individuals as locomotive engineers 
and designated supervisors of locomotive engineers. The collection of 
information is also used by FRA to verify that railroads have 
established required certification programs for locomotive engineers 
and that these programs fully conform to the standards specified in the 
regulation.

    Title: Roadway Worker Protection.
    OMB Control Number: 2130-0539.
    Abstract: On June 10, 2016, FRA amended its Roadway Worker 
Protection (RWP) regulation (see 81 FR 37840) to resolve interpretative 
issues that had arisen since the original 1996 promulgation of that 
rule. In particular, this final rule adopted certain terms, resolved 
miscellaneous interpretive issues, codified certain FRA Technical 
Bulletins, adopted new requirements governing redundant signal 
protections and the movement of roadway maintenance machinery over 
signalized non-controlled track, and amended certain qualification 
requirements for roadway workers. This final rule also deleted three 
outdated incorporations by reference of industry standards in FRA's 
Bridge Worker Safety Standards, and cross referenced the Occupational 
Safety and Health Administration's regulations on the same point.
    Under the information collection associated with the RWP rule (49 
CFR part 214), FRA collects a variety of information. To ensure 
compliance with the rule's requirements, FRA collects data on affected 
railroads' on-track safety programs to determine that railroads have 
policies, procedures, and practices in place that protect roadway 
workers as they go about doing their daily jobs in a dangerous 
environment. Railroads are required to provide on-track safety manuals 
to all roadway workers that they can readily consult as a guide when an 
issue arises as to how to complete a work assignment while maintaining 
complete safety. Under the regulation, railroads are required to 
provide initial and recurrent training to roadway workers on their on-
track safety program and the procedures to be followed to perform their 
daily work assignments. This includes training for roadway workers who 
work on adjacent track and the appropriate practices and procedures 
they must follow. FRA collects data from railroads on training through 
the records that they are required to keep. Additionally, FRA collects 
information on violations of workplace safety on Form FRA F 6180.119. 
FRA uses violation information to make changes that endanger railroad 
workers. Overall, FRA uses the information that it collects under this 
regulation to monitor and enforce requirements relating to the safety 
of roadway workers and ensure that railroads fulfill their 
responsibilities to make roadway workers environment secure and free 
from unnecessary and avoidable hazards.
