The 30-day notice elicited two comments which can be viewed at https:// www.regulations.gov in the docket USCG–2018–0498. This request provides a second 30-day comment period to address the public comments that we received and to solicit comments on the changes we made to the information collection request in response to the comments. The first commenter noted that there is a workgroup developing recommendations for improving recreational boating incident reporting and opening communication between the Coast Guard and all levels of enforcement. The commenter noted that the current form requires the owner of the vessel to fill out the form and submit it to the Coast Guard, but there is no efficient way for the states to require recreational boat owners who are unwilling or unable to submit the safety defect report to the Coast Guard. The Coast Guard supports allowing additional entities to report safety defects, and proposes to change the name of the report from ‘‘Consumer Safety Defect Report’’ to ‘‘Recreational Boat Safety Defect Report’’. The respondants for this new form will expand from receiving information from consumers (boat owners) to receiving information from any source, including boat owners, law enforcement, marine investigators, boat manufacturers, and the public. We will change the ‘‘who is reporting’’ section of the form to include places for names, addresses, and contact info for a company or agency and add check boxes for these additional sources to identify themselves as on the report, such as owner, manufacturer, law enforcement officer, investigator, and other. We will also collect vessel type, hull material, propulsion type, engine drive type and fuel using the 33 CFR 173/174 terms for those categories. The second commenter said that the reporting form should not have negative financial impacts on small business, service providers, or individuals and that someone should compensate these entities for their research. The commenter also noted that associated equipment can be dangerous to owners and operators. We agree that defective equipment is dangerous to vessel owners and operators. The purpose of submitting a safety defect report to the Coast Guard is so that the Coast Guard can look into the accuracy of the report VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:56 Oct 10, 2019 Jkt 250001 54915 and advise manufacturers in repairing defects in their equipment before they become catastrophic defects. The Safety Defect Report is not intended to cause negative financial impact on those entities. Safety defect reporting advances our maritime safety missions by asking vessel operators, and other entities, to report any suspected safety defects to the Coast Guard. The commenter did not give any suggestions on how to improve the collection of information or the form. No changes to this collection have been made at this time as a result of the second comment DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT Information Collection Request SUMMARY: HUD is seeking approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for the information collection described below.

Previous Request for Comments

    The Coast Guard published a 60-day notice (84 FR 5459, February 21, 
2019) and a 30-day notice (84 FR 19097, May 3, 2019) requesting 
comments, as required by 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2). The 30-day notice 
elicited two comments which can be viewed at https://www.regulations.gov in the docket USCG-2018-0498. This request provides 
a second 30-day comment period to address the public comments that we 
received and to solicit comments on the changes we made to the 
information collection request in response to the comments.
    The first commenter noted that there is a workgroup developing 
recommendations for improving recreational boating incident reporting 
and opening communication between the Coast Guard and all levels of 
enforcement. The commenter noted that the current form requires the 
owner of the vessel to fill out the form and submit it to the Coast 
Guard, but there is no efficient way for the states to require 
recreational boat owners who are unwilling or unable to submit the 
safety defect report to the Coast Guard.
    The Coast Guard supports allowing additional entities to report 
safety defects, and proposes to change the name of the report from 
``Consumer Safety Defect Report'' to ``Recreational Boat Safety Defect 
Report''. The respondants for this new form will expand from receiving 
information from consumers (boat owners) to receiving information from 
any source, including boat owners, law enforcement, marine 
investigators, boat manufacturers, and the public. We will change the 
``who is reporting'' section of the form to include places for names, 
addresses, and contact info for a company or agency and add check boxes 
for these additional sources to identify themselves as on the report, 
such as owner, manufacturer, law enforcement officer, investigator, and 
other. We will also collect vessel type, hull material, propulsion 
type, engine drive type and fuel using the 33 CFR 173/174 terms for 
those categories.
    The second commenter said that the reporting form should not have 
negative financial impacts on small business, service providers, or 
individuals and that someone should compensate these entities for their 
research. The commenter also noted that associated equipment can be 
dangerous to owners and operators. We agree that defective equipment is 
dangerous to vessel owners and operators. The purpose of submitting a 
safety defect report to the Coast Guard is so that the Coast Guard can 
look into the accuracy of the report and advise manufacturers in 
repairing defects in their equipment before they become catastrophic 
defects. The Safety Defect Report is not intended to cause negative 
financial impact on those entities. Safety defect reporting advances 
our maritime safety missions by asking vessel operators, and other 
entities, to report any suspected safety defects to the Coast Guard. 
The commenter did not give any suggestions on how to improve the 
collection of information or the form. No changes to this collection 
have been made at this time as a result of the second comment
