Abstract of Proposed Collection The Secretary of State is authorized to issue U.S. passports under 22 U.S.C. 211a et seq., 8 U.S.C. 1104, and Executive Order 11295 (August 5, 1966). Department regulations provide that individuals whose valid or potentially valid U.S. passports were lost or stolen must report the lost or stolen passport to the Department of State before receiving a new passport so that the lost or stolen passport can be invalidated (22 CFR parts 50 and 51). The Enhanced Border Security and Visa Entry Reform Act of 2002 (8 U.S.C. 1737) requires the Department of State to collect accurate information on lost or stolen U.S. passports and to enter that information into a data system. Form DS–64 collects information identifying the person who held the valid lost or stolen passport and describing the circumstances under which the passport was lost or stolen. As required by the cited authorities, we use the information collected to accurately identify the passport that must be invalidated and to make a record of the circumstances surrounding the lost or stolen passport. Methodology jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Passport bearers may submit their form electronically on www.travel.state.gov or call the National Passport Information Center at 1–877– 487–2778. A person may also download the form from the internet or obtain one at any passport agency or acceptance facility. Rachel M.

According to the verified notice, MSCI has leased and operated the Line since 2009.1 MSCI states that the lease for the Line expired on December 31, 2019, and that, pursuant to a recently signed Rail Line Lease & Operating Agreement (Agreement), the parties have agreed to extend the lease through December 31, 2023, with the option for MSCI thereafter to extend the lease for two additional four-year terms in accordance with the terms of the Agreement. MSCI states that it will continue to operate and provide common carrier service to shippers on the Line. MSCI certifies that its projected annual revenues from this transaction will not result in its becoming a Class I or Class II rail carrier and will not exceed $5 million. The earliest this transaction may be consummated is June 26, 2021, the effective date of the exemption (30 days after the verified notice was filed). If the notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a petition to revoke will not automatically stay the effectiveness of the exemption. Petitions to stay must be filed no later than June 18, 2021. All pleadings, referring to Docket No. FD 35258 (Sub-No. 1), should be filed with the Surface Transportation Board via e-filing on the Board’s website.
