Transportation, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, Washington, DC 20590-0001.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On July 24, 2020, PHMSA, in coordination 
with the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), published a final rule 
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 Code of Federal Regulations (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 1320.8d. 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

[[Page 73129]]

were not proposed in the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) [October 
24, 2019; 84 FR 56964], PHMSA published a 60-day notice [85 FR 46220] 
and is subsequently publishing this 30-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.
    As mentioned, on July 31, 2020, PHMSA published a 60-day notice to 
request comments on the revision to OMB Control Number 2137-0612. PHMSA 
received four sets of comments to the 60-day notice. None of these 
comments were specifically related to the change in the information 
collection burden. Therefore, PHMSA is revising OMB Control Number 
2137-0612 as follows:
