public reporting burden and cost \2\ for the information collection as:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Burden is the total time, effort, or financial resources 
expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or 
provide information to or for a federal agency. See 5 CFR 1320 for 
additional information on the definition of information collection 
burden.
    \2\ Commission staff estimates that the industry's skill set and

plus benefits for one FERC full-time equivalent (FTE) is $167,091/
year (or $80.00/hour).
