SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3520, and its implementing regulations, 5 CFR part 1320, require Federal agencies to issue two notices seeking public comment on information collection activities before OMB may approve paperwork packages. See 44 U.S.C. 3506, 3507; 5 CFR 1320.8 through 1320.12. On March 16, 2020, FRA published a 60-day notice in the Federal Register soliciting comment on the ICRs for which it is now seeking OMB approval. See 85 FR 15020. FRA received no comments in response to this notice. Before OMB decides whether to approve these proposed collections of information, it must provide 30 days for public comment. Federal law requires OMB to approve or disapprove paperwork packages between 30 and 60 days after the 30-day notice is published. 44 U.S.C. 3507(b)–(c); 5 CFR 1320.12(d); see also 60 FR 44978, 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. OMB believes the 30-day notice informs the regulated community to file relevant comments and affords the agency adequate time to digest public comments before it renders a decision. 60 FR 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. Therefore, respondents should submit their respective comments to OMB within 30 days of publication to best ensure having their full effect. Comments are invited on the following ICRs regarding: (1) Whether the information collection activities are necessary for FRA to properly execute its functions, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of FRA’s estimates of the burden of the information collection activities, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used to determine the estimates; (3) ways for FRA to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information being collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of information collection activities on the public, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. The summaries below describe the ICRs that FRA will submit for OMB clearance as the PRA requires: Title: Railroad Communications. OMB Control Number: 2130–0524.

ADDRESSES: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY I. Background [Docket No. TREAS–DO–2020–0007] Treasury continually seeks to finance the government at the lowest cost over time, manage its liability profile, foster healthy secondary markets, and expand the investor base for Treasury securities. Treasury is examining potential new products in pursuit of these goals. Following substantial analysis and consideration of input from market participants, in 2014 Treasury began issuing FRNs indexed to the 13-week Treasury bill rate (13-week T-bill FRNs). Since their launch, Treasury has issued more than $1.1 trillion of 13-week T-bill FRNs. A Treasury analysis released in 2017 showed that issuing 13-week T-bill FRNs had reduced realized interest costs by $1.3 billion (when compared to 2-year fixed-rate notes).1 Development and Potential Issuance of Treasury Floating Rate Notes Indexed to the Secured Overnight Financing Rate Department of the Treasury. Notice and request for information. AGENCY: ACTION: The Department of the Treasury (Treasury) is requesting comments on the possibility of issuing a floating rate note (FRN) indexed to the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR) published by the SOFR Administrator, currently the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (FRBNY). Treasury has not made a decision whether to issue FRNs indexed to SOFR (SOFR-indexed FRNs). Treasury will continue to weigh the merits of SOFRindexed FRNs, and comments received as part of this request for information SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00148 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 1 See 4th Quarter 2017 Treasury Borrowing Advisory Committee Discussion Charts, available at https://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/datachart-center/quarterly-refunding/Documents/ Q42017CombinedChargesforArchives.pdf.

Avenue SE, Washington, DC 20590.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501-3520, and its 
implementing regulations, 5 CFR part 1320, require Federal agencies to 
issue two notices seeking public comment on information collection 
activities before OMB may approve paperwork packages. See 44 U.S.C. 
3506, 3507; 5 CFR 1320.8 through 1320.12. On March 16, 2020, FRA 
published a 60-day notice in the Federal Register soliciting comment on 
the ICRs for which it is now seeking OMB approval. See 85 FR 15020. FRA 
received no comments in response to this notice.
    Before OMB decides whether to approve these proposed collections of 
information, it must provide 30 days for public comment. Federal law 
requires OMB to approve or disapprove paperwork packages between 30 and 
60 days after the 30-day notice is published. 44 U.S.C. 3507(b)-(c); 5 
CFR 1320.12(d); see also 60 FR 44978, 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. OMB 
believes the 30-day notice informs the regulated community to file 
relevant comments and affords the agency adequate time to digest public 
comments before it renders a decision. 60 FR 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. 
Therefore, respondents should submit their respective comments to OMB 
within 30 days of publication to best ensure having their full effect.
    Comments are invited on the following ICRs regarding: (1) Whether 
the information collection activities are necessary for FRA to properly 
execute its functions, including whether the information will have 
practical utility; (2) the accuracy of FRA's estimates of the burden of 
the information collection activities, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used to determine the estimates; (3) ways 
for FRA to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information 
being collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of information 
collection activities on the public, including the use of automated 
collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
    The summaries below describe the ICRs that FRA will submit for OMB 
clearance as the PRA requires:
