In addition, section 123 of the Surface Transportation Assistance Act of 1978 (Pub. L. 95–599, 92 Stat. 2689, 2701) requires each jurisdiction to SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\04FEN1.SGM 04FEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 23 / Tuesday, February 4, 2020 / Notices khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES inventory annually (1) its penalties for violation of its size and weight laws, and (2) the term and cost of its oversize and overweight permits.

The plan goes into effect at the beginning of each Federal fiscal year. At the end of the fiscal year, States must submit their certifications and sufficient information to verify that their enforcement goals established in the plan have been met. Respondents: The State Departments of Transportation (or equivalent) in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Next Generation National Household Travel Survey (Next Gen NHTS). SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00119 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 6259 Type of Request: New request for periodic information collection requirement. Background: Title 23, United States Code, Section 502 authorizes the USDOT to carry out advanced research and transportation research to measure the performance of the surface transportation systems in the U.S., including the efficiency, energy use, air quality, congestion, and safety of the highway and intermodal transportation systems. The USDOT is charged with the overall responsibility to obtain current information on national patterns of travel, which establishes a data base to better understand travel behavior, evaluate the use of transportation facilities, and gauge the impact of the USDOT’s policies and programs. The NHTS is the USDOT’s authoritative nationally representative data source for daily passenger travel. This inventory of travel behavior reflects travel mode (e.g., private vehicles, public transportation, walk and bike) and trip purpose (e.g., travel to work, school, recreation, personal/ family trips) by U.S. household residents. Survey results are used by federal and state agencies to monitor the performance and adequacy of current facilities and infrastructure, and to plan for future needs. The collection and analysis of national transportation data has been of critical importance for half a century. Previous surveys were conducted in 1969, 1977, 1983, 1990, 1995, 2001, 2009, and 2017. The current survey will be the ninth in this series, and allow researchers, planners, and officials at the state and federal levels to monitor travel trends. Data from the NHTS are widely used to support research needs within the USDOT, and State and local agencies, in addition to responding to queries from Congress, the research community and the media on important issues. Current and recent topics of interest include: • Travel to work patterns by transportation mode for infrastructure improvements and congestion reduction, • Access to public transit, paratransit, and rail services by various demographic groups, • Measures of travel by mode to establish exposure rates for risk analyses, • Support for Federal, State, and local planning activities and policy evaluation, • Active transportation by walk and bike to establish the relationship to public health issues, • Vehicle usage for energy consumption analysis, E:\FR\FM\04FEN1.SGM 04FEN1

District of Columbia and Puerto Rico to file an annual certification 
that they are enforcing their size and weight laws on Federal-aid 
highways and that their Interstate System weight limits are consistent 
with Federal requirements to be eligible to receive an apportionment of

weight laws on the Interstate System that are consistent with Federal 
requirements, could result in a specified reduction of its Federal 
highway fund apportionment for the next fiscal year. In addition,

such information as is necessary to verify that their certifications 
are accurate. To determine whether States are adequately enforcing 
their size and weight limits, FHWA requires that each State submit to 
the FHWA an updated plan for enforcing their size and weight limits. 
The plan goes into effect at the beginning of each Federal fiscal year. 
At the end of the fiscal year, States must submit their certifications 
and sufficient information to verify that their enforcement goals 
established in the plan have been met.
    Respondents: The State Departments of Transportation (or 
equivalent) in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the 
Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
    Frequency: Annually in separate collections: One certification and 
one plan (2 collections).
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: Each response will take 
approximately 40 hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 4,160 hours.

information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of the U.S. 
DOT's estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; 
(3) ways to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the 
collected information; and (4) ways that the burden could be minimized, 
including the use of electronic technology or reduced frequency of 
collection of the plan, without reducing the quality of the collected
