Total annual opportunity cost (dollars) ** ** 1,291,713,388 * We based these figures on average Business and Financial operations occupations (https://www.bls.gov/oes/current/oes130000.htm), and Accountants and Auditors hourly salaries (https://www.bls.gov/oes/current/oes132011.htm), as reported by Bureau of Labor Statistics data, and average DI payments, as reported in SSA’s disability insurance payment data (https://www.ssa.gov/legislation/2021FactSheet.pdf). ** This figure does not represent actual costs that SSA is imposing on recipients of Social Security payments to complete this application; rather, these are theoretical opportunity costs for the additional time respondents will spend to complete the application. There is no actual charge to respondents to complete the application. *** The enrollment process is automated within the eCBSV Customer Connection, and entails providing consent for SSA to verify the EIN, electronically signing the eCBSV User Agreement and the permitted entity certification, selecting their annual tier level, and linking to pay.gov to make payment for services. **** There will be one CPA firm respondent (an SSA-approved contractor) to conduct compliance reviews and prepare written reports of findings on the 113 permitted entities. Cost Burden The public cost burden is dependent upon the number of permitted entities using the service and the annual transaction volume. In FY 2019, 10 companies enrolled out of 123 applications received to participate in eCBSV. We based the cost estimates below on 123 participating permitted entities in FY 2021 submitting an anticipated volume of 1,100,000,000 transactions. The total cost for developing the service is $45,000,000, and SSA will recover the cost over a five-year period, assuming projected enrollments and transaction volumes materialize. eCBSV TIER FEE SCHEDULE Annual volume threshold Tier jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES 1 2 3 4 5 ....... ....... ....... ....... .......

We will charge newly enrolled entities a startup administrative fee of $3,693. After the initial year, we will charge the entities a renewal administrative fee of $1,691 each time the agreement is renewed or amended. Fees are calculated based on forecasted systems and operational expenses, agency oversight, overhead, and CPA audit contract costs. In addition, SSA will periodically recalculate costs to provide eCBSV services, and revise the tier fee schedule accordingly. We will notify companies of the tier fee schedule in effect at the renewal of eCBSV user agreements and via notice in the Federal Register; companies have the opportunity to VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:23 Apr 02, 2021 Jkt 253001 cancel the agreement or renew service according to the new tier fee schedule.

(A&O) and CSX Transportation (CSXT) jointly petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) seeking approval to discontinue or modify a signal system. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2021–0034. Applicants: Appalachian and Ohio Railroad, Inc., J. Thomas Garrett, President, 200 Clark Street, Paducah, KY 42003 CSX Transportation, Carl A. Walker, Chief Engineer Communications and Signals, 500 Water Street, Speed Code J–350, Jacksonville, FL 32202 Specifically, A&O and CSXT request approval to discontinue the traffic control system (TCS) on CSXT owned, dispatched, and maintained trackage, being leased and operated by A&O. The track spans from, but does not include, control point (CP) Berkeley Run Junction, milepost (MP) BUC 0.0 Grafton, West Virginia, to CP Hampton Junction, MP BUC 42.1, Buckhannon, West Virginia, including signaled sidings. A&O will install a new and modern broken rail detection system (BRDS) in Philippi, West Virginia, from MP 13.3 to MP 16.4, and Buckhannon, West Virginia, from MP 32.2 through MP 39.3, on the Cowen District Main VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:23 Apr 02, 2021 Jkt 253001 Line, and in Pleasant Creek Bridge, MP 5.5 through MP 7.2. If this modification is made, the entire A&O will operate under Track Warrant Control Rules and will be dispatched by A&O. The BRDS will be designed to detect broken rails and misaligned switches. Switch circuit controllers and normally energized shunt-sensitive track circuits will constantly monitor switch positions and rail integrity. Each BRDS block will be defined by wayside indicators for displaying block information to train crews at the block’s entrance. A&O and CSXT state the reasons for the proposed changes are that traffic volumes do not warrant TCS and that the current signal system is obsolete and replacement components are difficult to obtain or unavailable from vendors. A copy of the petition, as well as any written communications concerning the petition, is available for review online at www.regulations.gov. Interested parties are invited to participate in these proceedings by submitting written views, data, or comments. FRA does not anticipate scheduling a public hearing in connection with these proceedings since the facts do not appear to warrant a hearing.

Specifically, UPRR seeks continued relief from blue signal requirements as prescribed in 49 CFR 218.25, Workers on a main track, on five specific track locations in Kansas City, Kansas, and Kansas City, Missouri. The subject tracks are in the middle of the Kansas City facilities and are used for functions normally performed on yard tracks, including fueling, locomotive inspections, and adding or removing power from trains. This request is for the following track locations: • Main 1 and Main 2, between Manchester and Troost (MP MX279– MX281); • Main 1 and Main 2 at 18th St., between MP KX004 and KX006; and • Main line at 10th St., between MP KX287 and KX289. UP requests flexibility to treat these main tracks at the Kansas City facilities as other-than-main-tracks, so it can have the option of protecting its employees working on, under, or between rolling equipment in accordance with 49 CFR 218.25, Workers on a main track, or 49 CFR 218.27, Workers on track other E:\FR\FM\05APN1.SGM 05APN1
