The Commission plans to submit this existing collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget for extension and approval. Schedule 14N (17 CFR 240.14n–101) requires the filing of certain information with the Commission by shareholders who submit a nominee or nominees for director pursuant to applicable state law, or a company’s governing documents. Schedule 14N provides notice to the company of the shareholder’s intent to have the company include the shareholder’s or shareholder groups’ nominee or nominees for director in the company’s proxy materials. This information is intended to assist shareholders in making an informed voting decision with regards to any nominee or nominees put forth by a nominating shareholder or group, by allowing shareholders to gauge the nominating shareholder’s interest in the company, longevity of ownership, and intent with regard to continued ownership in the company. We estimate that Schedule 14N takes approximately 40 hours per response and will be filed by approximately 42 issuers annually. In addition, we estimate that 75% of the 40 hours per response (30 hours per response) is prepared by the issuer for an annual reporting burden of 1,260 hours (30 hours per response × 42 responses). Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether this collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden imposed by the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and PO 00000 Frm 00103 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Consideration will be given to comments and suggestions submitted in writing within 60 days of this publication. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number. Please direct your written comments to David Bottom, Director/Chief Information Officer, Securities and Exchange Commission, c/o Cynthia Roscoe, 100 F Street NE, Washington, DC 20549 or send and an email to: PRA_ Mailbox@sec.gov.

As explained by BNSF in its verified notice of exemption in Docket No. FD 36377, BNSF and Union Pacific Railroad Company (UP) entered into an agreement granting BNSF local trackage rights over two rail lines owned by UP between: (1) UP milepost 93.2 at Stockton, Cal., on UP’s Oakland Subdivision, and UP milepost 219.4 at Elsey, Cal., on UP’s Canyon Subdivision, a distance of 126.2 miles; and (2) UP milepost 219.4 at Elsey and UP milepost 280.7 at Keddie, Cal., on UP’s Canyon Subdivision, a distance of 61.3 miles. BNSF Verified Notice of Exemption 2, BNSF Ry.—Trackage Rights Exemption—Union Pac. R.R., FD 36377. BNSF further stated that the trackage rights arrangement is intended to permit BNSF to move empty and loaded ballast trains to and from the ballast pit located at Elsey. (Id.) BNSF filed its verified notice of exemption under the Board’s class exemption procedures at 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(7), explaining that, because the trackage rights covered by the notice in Docket No. FD 36377 are local rather than overhead rights, they do not qualify for the Board’s class exemption for temporary trackage rights under 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(8).See BNSF Verified Notice of Exemption 1 n.1, BNSF Ry.— Trackage Rights Exemption—Union Pac. R.R., FD 36377. In this sub-docket, BNSF has now filed a petition for partial revocation of the exemption as necessary to permit the trackage rights to expire at midnight on December 31, 2020, pursuant to the parties’ agreement. (See BNSF Pet. 1–2); see also BNSF Verified Notice of Exemption Ex. B at 2, BNSF Ry.— Trackage Rights Exemption—Union Pac. R.R., FD 36377. BNSF argues that granting this petition will promote the rail transportation policy. BNSF also argues that the revocation would be consistent with the limited scope of the transaction and would not have an adverse effect on shippers. (BNSF Pet. 3.) PO 00000 Frm 00104 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 14287 Discussion and Conclusions Although BNSF and UP have expressly agreed on the duration of the proposed trackage rights agreement, trackage rights approved under the class exemption at § 1180.2(d)(7) typically remain effective indefinitely, regardless of any contract provisions. Occasionally, however, the Board has partially revoked a trackage rights exemption to allow those rights to expire after a limited time period rather than lasting in perpetuity. See, e.g., New Orleans Pub. Belt R.R.—Trackage Rights Exemption—Ill. Cent. R.R., FD 36198 (Sub-No. 1) (STB served June 20, 2018); BNSF Ry.—Temp. Trackage Rights Exemption—Union Pac. R.R., FD 35963 (Sub-No. 1) (STB served Dec. 17, 2015) (granting a petition to partially revoke a trackage rights exemption involving the same lines at issue in this case). Granting partial revocation in these circumstances to permit the trackage rights to expire at the end of 2020 would eliminate the need for BNSF to file a second pleading seeking discontinuance when the agreement expires, thereby promoting the rail transportation goals at 49 U.S.C. 10101(2), (7) and (15). Moreover, partially revoking the exemption to limit the term of the trackage rights would have no adverse impact on shippers because the trackage rights at issue are solely to allow BNSF to move empty and loaded ballast trains to and from the ballast pit in Elsey for use in BNSF’s maintenance-of-way projects. (See BNSF Pet. 2.) Therefore, the Board will grant the petition and permit the trackage rights exempted in Docket No. FD 36377 to expire at midnight on December 31, 2020. To provide the statutorily mandated protection to any employee adversely affected by the discontinuance of trackage rights, the Board will impose the employee protective conditions set forth in Oregon Short Line Railroad— Abandonment Portion Goshen Branch Between Firth & Ammon, in Bingham & Bonneville Counties, Idaho, 360 I.C.C. 91 (1979). This action is categorically excluded from environmental review under 49 CFR 1105.6(c). It is ordered: 1. The petition for partial revocation of the trackage rights class exemption is granted. 2. As discussed above, the trackage rights in Docket No. FD 36377 are permitted to expire at midnight on December 31, 2020, subject to the employee protective conditions set forth in Oregon Short Line. 3. Notice of this decision will be published in the Federal Register. E:\FR\FM\11MRN1.SGM 11MRN1
