Telephone: 202–385–2367; email jeff.secrist@dot.gov. Office hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal Holidays. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Annual Report of Class I and Class II Motor Carriers of Property. OMB Control Number: 2126–0032. Type of Request: Renewal information collection. Respondents: Class I and Class II ForHire Motor Carriers of Property and Class I For-Hire Motor Carriers of Passengers. Estimated Number of Respondents: 43 per year. Estimated Time per Response: 9 hours for Form M and 0.3 hours for Form MP– 1. Expiration Date: September 30, 2020. Frequency of Response: Annually. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 387 hours [387 hours (Form M) + 0 hours (Form MP–1)]. Estimated annual respondents for Form M decreased from 96 in the previously approved ICR to 43 respondents in the proposed ICR. As a result, the estimated annual burden hours for Form M decreased by 477 hours [864 currently approved hours ¥ 387 proposed hours = 477 hours]. For Form MP–1, respondents decreased from 2 in the previously approved ICR to 0 the proposed ICR. As a result, the estimated annual burden hours for Form MP–1 decreased by 1 hour [1 currently PO 00000 Frm 00144 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 approved hour ¥ 0 proposed hours = 1 hour] for Form MP–1. Burden costs to the industry regarding Form M decreased by $20,780 annually, [$38,811 in the currently approved burden cost ¥ $18,031 in the proposed burden cost = $20,780]. Burden costs to the industry regarding form MP–1 have decreased by $59 annually [$59 in the currently approved burden cost ¥ $0 in the proposed burden cost = $59]. For the Federal Government, regarding Form M, the federal burden costs have decreased by $91 annually [$165 in the currently approved federal burden cost ¥ $74 in the proposed burden cost = $91]. Regarding Form MP–1, the federal burden costs have decreased by $2 annually [$2 in the currently approved federal burden cost ¥ $0 in the proposed burden cost = $2]. These lower estimates of annual respondents, hours, respondent costs and federal costs is due to the decreased number of Form M and Form MP–1 submissions received by FMCSA between 2016 and 2018. Background: Section 14123 of title 49 of the United States Code (U.S.C.) requires certain for-hire motor carriers of property, passengers, and household goods to file annual financial reports. The annual reporting program was implemented on December 24, 1938 (3 FR 3158), and it was subsequently transferred from the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) on January 1, 1996. The Secretary of Transportation delegated to BTS the responsibility for the program on December 17, 1996 (61 FR 68162). Annual financial reports are filed on Form M (Class I and II for-hire property carriers, including household goods carriers) and Form MP–1 (Class I forhire passenger carriers). Responsibility for collection of the reports was transferred from BTS to FMCSA on August 17, 2004 (69 FR 51009), and the regulations were redesignated as 49 CFR part 369 on August 10, 2006 (71 FR 45740). FMCSA has continued to collect carriers’ annual reports and to furnish copies of the reports to the public when requested under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). For-hire motor carriers (including interstate and intrastate) subject to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations are classified on the basis of their gross carrier operating revenues.1 1 For purposes of the Financial and Operating Statistics (F&OS) program, carriers are classified into the following three groups: (1) Class I carriers are those having annual carrier operating revenues (including interstate and intrastate) of $10 million or more after applying the revenue deflator formula E:\FR\FM\31JYN1.SGM 31JYN1
