SUMMARY: Comments on this information collection should be submitted by April 24, 2020. DATES: Direct all comments to Chris Oehrle, Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street SW, Washington, DC 20423–0001, or to PRA@stb.gov.

Assistance for the hearing impaired is available through the Federal Relay Service at (800) 877–8339. ADDRESSES: For each collection, comments are requested concerning: (1) The accuracy of the Board’s burden estimates; (2) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; (3) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology, when appropriate; and (4) whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Board, including whether the collection has practical utility. Submitted comments will be summarized and included in the Board’s request for OMB approval. lotter on DSKBCFDHB2PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:30 Feb 21, 2020 Jkt 250001 Title: Petitions for declaratory order. OMB Control Number: 2140–0031. STB Form Number: None. Type of Review: Extension without change. Respondents: Affected shippers, railroads, communities, and other stakeholders that choose to seek a declaratory order from the Board to terminate a controversy or remove uncertainty. Number of Respondents: Approximately 10. Estimated Time per Response: 183 hours. Frequency: On occasion. In calendar years 2017–2019, approximately 10 petitions for declaratory order were filed with the Board per year. Total Burden Hours (annually including all respondents): 1,830 hours (estimated hours per petition (183) × total number of petitions (10)). Total ‘‘Non-hour Burden’’ Cost: $12,360 (estimated non-hour burden cost per petition ($1,236) × total number of petitions (10)). Needs and Uses: Under 5 U.S.C. 554(e) and 49 U.S.C. 1321, the Board may issue a declaratory order to terminate a controversy or remove uncertainty. Because petitions for declaratory order can encompass a broad range of issues and types of requests, the Board does not prescribe specific instructions for their filing. The collection by the Board regarding petitions for declaratory order that parties choose to file enables the Board to meet its statutory duty to regulate the rail industry. Collection Number 2 Title: Petitions for relief not otherwise provided. OMB Control Number: 2140–0030. STB Form Number: None. Type of Review: Extension without change. Respondents: Affected shippers, railroads, communities, and other stakeholders that seek to address issues under the Board’s jurisdiction that are not otherwise specifically provided for under the Board’s other regulatory provisions.

In calendar years 2017–2019, approximately four petitions of this type were filed with the Board per year. Total Burden Hours (annually including all respondents): 100 hours PO 00000 Frm 00111 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (estimated hours per petition (25) × total number of petitions (4)). Total ‘‘Non-hour Burden’’ Cost: $280 (estimated non-hour burden cost per petition ($70) × total number of petitions (four)). Needs and Uses: Under 49 U.S.C. 1321 and 49 CFR part 1117 (the Board’s catch-all petition provision), shippers, railroads, and the public in general may seek relief (such as waiver of the Board’s regulations) not otherwise specifically provided for under the Board’s other regulatory provisions. Under section 1117.1, such petitions should contain three items: (a) A short, plain statement of jurisdiction, (b) a short, plain statement of petitioner’s claim, and (c) request for relief. The collection by the Board of these petitions that parties choose to file enables the Board to more fully meet its statutory duty to regulate the rail industry. Under the PRA, a federal agency that conducts or sponsors a collection of information must display a currently valid OMB control number. A collection of information, which is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c), includes agency requirements that persons submit reports, keep records, or provide information to the agency, third parties, or the public. Under 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A), federal agencies are required to provide, prior to an agency’s submitting a collection to OMB for approval, a 60-day notice and comment period through publication in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension of an existing collection of information.

Title: Pilots Convicted of Alcohol or Drug-Related Motor Vehicle Offenses Subject to State Motor Vehicle Administrative Procedure. Form Numbers: No official form numbers used. Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection. Background: After a study and audit conducted from the late 1970’s through the 1980’s by the Department of Transportation, Office of the Inspector General, (DOT/OIG), the DOT/OIG recommended the FAA find a way to track alcohol abusers and those dependent on the substance that may pose a threat to the National Airspace (NAS). Through a Congressional act issued in November of 1990, the FAA established a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) Investigations Branch. The final rule for this program is found in Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR)—part 61 § 61.15. This regulation calls for pilots certificated by the FAA to send information regarding Driving Under the Influence (or similar charges) of alcohol and/or drugs to the FAA within 60 days from either an administrative action against their driver’s license and/or criminal conviction. Part of the regulation also calls for the FAA to seek certificate action should an airman be involved in multiple, separate drug/ alcohol related motor vehicle incidents within a three-year period. Information sent by the airmen is used to confirm or refute any violations of these regulations, as well as by the Civil Aerospace Medical Institute (CAMI) for medical qualification purposes. Collection by CAMI is covered under a separate OMB control number 2120– 0034. An airman is required to provide a letter via mail or facsimile, with the following information: Name, address, date of birth, pilot certificate number, the type of violation which resulted in the conviction or administrative action, and the state which holds the records or action. Respondents: FAA airmen with drug and alcohol related motor vehicle actions. E:\FR\FM\24FEN1.SGM 24FEN1

[Docket No. AB 55 (Sub-No. 798X)]


CSX Transportation, Inc.--Discontinuance of Service Exemption--in 
Raleigh County, W. Va.

    CSX Transportation, Inc. (CSXT), has filed a verified notice of 
exemption under 49 CFR part 1152 subpart F--Exempt Abandonments and 
Discontinuances of Service to discontinue service over an approximately 
4.4-mile rail line on its Florence Division, Coal River Subdivision, 
from milepost CLQ 3.0 to milepost CLQ 7.4, in Raleigh County, W. Va. 
(the Line). The Line traverses U.S. Postal Service Zip Code 25140.

[[Page 10509]]

    CSXT has certified that: (1) No local or overhead traffic has moved 
over the Line for at least two years; (2) any overhead traffic on the 
Line can be rerouted over other lines; (3) no formal complaint filed by 
a user of rail service on the Line (or by a state or local government 
entity acting on behalf of such user) regarding cessation of service 
over the Line is pending either with the Surface Transportation Board 
(Board) or with any U.S. District Court or has been decided in favor of 
complainant within the two-year period; and (4) the requirements at 49 
CFR 1105.12 (newspaper publication) and 49 CFR 1152.50(d)(1) (notice to 
governmental agencies) have been met.
    As a condition to this exemption, any employee adversely affected 
by the discontinuance of service shall be protected under Oregon Short 
Line Railroad--Abandonment Portion Goshen Branch Between Firth & Ammon, 
in Bingham & Bonneville Counties, Idaho, 360 I.C.C. 91 (1979). To 
address whether this condition adequately protects affected employees, 
a petition for partial revocation under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) must be 
filed.
    Provided no formal expression of intent to file an offer of 
financial assistance (OFA) \1\ to subsidize continued rail service has 
been received, this exemption will be effective on March 25, 2020, 
unless stayed pending reconsideration. Petitions to stay that do not 
involve environmental issues and formal expressions of intent to file 
an OFA to subsidize continued rail service under 49 CFR 1152.27(c)(2) 
\2\ must be filed by March 5, 2020.\3\ Petitions for reconsideration 
must be filed by March 16, 2020, with the Surface Transportation Board, 
395 E Street SW, Washington, DC 20423-0001.

    \1\ Persons interested in submitting an OFA to subsidize 
continued rail service must first file a formal expression of intent 
to file an offer, indicating the intent to file an OFA for subsidy 
and demonstrating that they are preliminarily financially 
responsible. See 49 CFR 1152.27(c)(2)(i).
    \2\ The filing fee for OFAs can be found at 49 CFR 
1002.2(f)(25).
    \3\ Because this is a discontinuance proceeding and not an 
abandonment, trail use/rail banking and public use conditions are 
not appropriate. Because there will be an environmental review 
during abandonment, this discontinuance does not require 
environmental review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A copy of any petition filed with the Board should be sent to 
CSXT's representative, Louis E. Gitomer, Law Offices of Louis E. 
Gitomer, LLC, 600 Baltimore Avenue, Suite 301, Towson, MD 21204.
