The required content of a complaint is outlined at 49 CFR 1111.1(a). 
Generally, the most significant complaints filed at the Board allege 
that railroads are charging unreasonable rates or that they are 
engaging in unreasonable practices. The collection by the Board of 
these complaints, and the agency's action in conducting proceedings and 
ruling on the complaints, enables the Board to meet its statutory duty 
to regulate the rail industry.
    In two notices of proposed rulemakings, Final Offer Rate Review, EP 
755 et al. (84 FR 48872 (Sept. 17, 2019)), and Market Dominance 
Streamlined Approach, EP 756 (84 FR 48882 (Sept. 17, 2019)), the Board 
proposed new rules that are intended to simplify and streamline certain 
complaint proceedings. The Board has submitted to OMB an interim 
request for modification and extension of the existing collection in 
connection with those proceedings, and has received comments, which it 
is reviewing. The Board will need to submit another request for 
modification of the collection for complaints, and address comments 
received in those proceedings, should final rules be adopted in those 
proceedings.
    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. Section 3507(b) of the PRA requires, 
concurrent with an agency's submitting a collection to OMB for 
approval, a 30-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.
