The following is a brief overview of the request. The County of Saratoga has requested release from grant assurance obligations of approximately 1.79 acres of airport property at Saratoga County Airport to permit the disposal of the land at fair market value to allow an existing notfor-profit hospice facility to continue to operate on site. The airport has no plans to utilize the parcel for aviation use. The 1.79 acres sits on a larger 5.48-acre parcel currently owned by the airport. The 5.48-acre parcel will be split into two parcels; a 3.69-acre parcel that will be retained by the airport, as it includes a portion of the Runway 23 Runway Protection Zone, and the 1.79-acre parcel that is outside of the Runway Protection Zone and currently houses the not-for-profit hospice facility and associated parking area. As a condition of the release, the proposed use must not interfere with the airport or its operations. The Federal share of the proceeds of the disposal would be distributed towards approved AIP eligible efforts, with the remaining proceeds to be utilized to operate the airport. For these reasons, it is not anticipated that this acreage will be VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:36 Jun 07, 2021 Jkt 253001 needed for aeronautical purposes in the future.

Office hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Biennial Performance Reporting for the TPM Program. Background: The MAP–21 (Pub. L. 112–141) and FAST Act (Pub. L. 114– 94) transformed the Federal-aid highway program by establishing new requirements for transportation performance management (TPM) to ensure the most efficient investment of Federal transportation funds. Prior to MAP–21, there were no explicit requirements for State DOTs to demonstrate how their transportation program supported national performance outcomes. State DOTs were not required to measure condition or performance, establish targets, assess progress toward targets, or report on condition or performance in a nationally consistent manner that FHWA could use to assess the entire system. It has been difficult for FHWA to examine the effectiveness of the Federal-aid highway program as a means to address surface transportation performance at a national level without States reporting on the above factors. The new TPM requirements, as established by MAP–21 and FAST Act, change this paradigm and require states to measure condition or performance, establish targets, assess progress towards targets and report on condition or performance. DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00115 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 30515 State DOTs now must submit biennial performance reports (23 U.S.C. 150 (e) and 23 CFR 490.107). The information being requested in the TPM Biennial Reports has been provided to the DOT in an electronic format through an online data form called the Performance Management Form (PMF). State DOTs have successfully submitted the required biennial reports in October 2018 and 2020. Alternative formats will be made available where necessary. As part of the rulemaking 1 implementing the MAP–21 and FAST Act requirements, FHWA evaluated all of the Biennial Reporting requirements in the individual regulatory impact assessments (RIA) and determined the following: Respondents: 52 State DOTs, including Washington DC and Puerto Rico. Frequency: Biennially. Estimated Average Burden per Response: Approximately 2,128 hours annually for an individual State DOT to compile, organize, and submit the report to FHWA. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: Approximately 110,656 hours annually.
