On July 24, 2020, PHMSA, in coordination with the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), published a final rule 1 titled ‘‘Hazardous Materials: Liquefied Natural Gas by Rail’’ [HM–264, 85 FR 44994], to allow for the bulk transport of ‘‘Methane, refrigerated liquid,’’ commonly known as liquefied natural gas (LNG), in rail tank cars. In this final rule, PHMSA amended the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR parts 171–180) to require any rail carrier transporting a tank car quantity of UN1972 (Methane, refrigerated liquid (cryogenic liquid) or Natural gas, refrigerated liquid (cryogenic liquid)) to comply with the additional safety and security planning requirements for transportation by rail. PHMSA currently accounts for the burden associated with safety and security planning requirements in Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Control Number 2137–0612, ‘‘Hazardous Materials Security Plans.’’ OMB regulations require PHMSA to provide interested members of the public and affected agencies an opportunity to comment on information collection and recordkeeping requests. 5 CFR 1320.8(d). Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 96–511), no person is required to respond to an information collection unless it has been approved by OMB and displays a valid OMB control number. As the HM– 264 final rule contains revisions that were not proposed in the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) 2 [October 24, 2019; 84 FR 56964], PHMSA is publishing this 60-day notice to provide an opportunity for public comment on the estimated increase in burden. The estimated increase in burden hours is reflected in ‘‘Section VI.G. Paperwork Reduction Act,’’ of the preamble to the final rule, with a minor adjustment due to a rounding error. PHMSA will subsequently publish a 30-day notice in response to any comments received to this notice, along with a submission to OMB reflecting this revised annual burden.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On July 24, 2020, PHMSA, in coordination 
with the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), published a final rule 
\1\ titled ``Hazardous Materials: Liquefied Natural Gas by Rail'' [HM-
264, 85 FR 44994], to allow for the bulk transport of ``Methane, 
refrigerated liquid,'' commonly known as liquefied natural gas (LNG), 
in rail tank cars. In this final rule, PHMSA amended the Hazardous 
Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR parts 171-180) to require any rail 
carrier transporting a tank car quantity of UN1972 (Methane, 
refrigerated liquid (cryogenic liquid) or Natural gas, refrigerated 
liquid (cryogenic liquid)) to comply with the additional safety and 
security planning requirements for transportation by rail. PHMSA 
currently accounts for the burden associated with safety and security 
planning requirements in Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Control 
Number 2137-0612, ``Hazardous Materials Security Plans.''

    \1\ See https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2020-07-24/pdf/2020-13604.pdf.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    OMB regulations require PHMSA to provide interested members of the 
public and affected agencies an opportunity to comment on information 
collection and recordkeeping requests. 5 CFR 1320.8(d). Under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 96-511), no person is required 
to respond to an information collection unless it has been approved by 
OMB and displays a valid OMB control number. As the HM-264 final rule 
contains revisions that were not proposed in the notice of proposed 
rulemaking (NPRM) \2\ [October 24, 2019; 84 FR 56964], PHMSA is 
publishing this 60-day notice to provide an opportunity for public 
comment on the estimated increase in burden. The estimated increase in 
burden hours is reflected in ``Section VI.G. Paperwork Reduction Act,'' 
of the preamble to the final rule, with a minor adjustment due to a 
rounding error. PHMSA will subsequently publish a 30-day notice in 
response to any comments received to this notice, along with a 
submission to OMB reflecting this revised annual burden.
