Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 202 / Friday, October 22, 2021 / Notices Computation Under the formula, the election official and election worker coverage threshold for 2022 is equal to the 1999 amount of $1,000 multiplied by the ratio of the national average wage index for 2020 to that for 1997. If the amount we determine is not a multiple of $100, we round it to the nearest multiple of $100. Election Official and Election Worker Coverage Threshold Amount Multiplying the 1999 coverage threshold amount ($1,000) by the ratio of the national average wage index for 2020 ($55,628.60) to that for 1997 ($27,426.00) produces $2,028.32. We then round this amount to $2,000. Therefore, the election official and election worker coverage threshold amount is $2,000 for 2022.

Before submitting this ICR to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for approval, FRA is soliciting public comment on specific aspects of the activities identified in the ICR. DATES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments on or before December 21, 2021]. ADDRESSES: Written comments and recommendations for the proposed ICR should be submitted on regulations.gov to the docket, Docket No. FRA–2021– 0006. All comments received will be posted without change to the docket, including any personal information provided. Please refer to the assigned OMB control number in any correspondence submitted.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3520, and its implementing regulations, 5 CFR part 1320, require Federal agencies to provide 60-days’ notice to the public to allow comment on information collection activities before seeking OMB approval of the activities. See 44 U.S.C. 3506, 3507; 5 CFR 1320.8 through 1320.12. Specifically, FRA invites interested parties to comment on the following ICR regarding: (1) Whether the SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\22OCN1.SGM 22OCN1 58722 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 202 / Friday, October 22, 2021 / Notices lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 information collection activities are necessary for FRA to properly execute its functions, including whether the activities will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of FRA’s estimates of the burden of the information collection activities, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used to determine the estimates; (3) ways for FRA to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information being collected; and (4) ways for FRA to minimize the burden of information collection activities on the public, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. See 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A); 5 CFR 1320.8(d)(1). FRA believes that soliciting public comment may reduce the administrative and paperwork burdens associated with the collection of information that Federal regulations mandate. In summary, FRA reasons that comments received will advance three objectives: (1) Reduce reporting burdens; (2) organize information collection requirements in a ‘‘user-friendly’’ format to improve the use of such information; and (3) accurately assess the resources expended to retrieve and produce information requested. See 44 U.S.C. 3501. The summary below describes the ICR that FRA will submit for OMB clearance as the PRA requires: Title: Railroad Signal System. OMB Control Number: 2130–0006. Abstract: The information collected under 49 CFR parts 233, 235, and 236 is used by FRA to monitor railroad compliance with FRA’s inspection and testing requirements for signal systems, as well as to review and approve railroad requests to discontinue or materially modify existing signal systems. The information collected is also used by FRA to monitor signal failures (e.g., failure of a signal appliance, device, method, or system to function or indicate as required by 49 CFR part 236 that results in a more favorable aspect than intended or other condition hazardous to the movement of a train). For instance: • § 233.5 requires each railroad to report to FRA within 24 hours after learning of an accident or incident arising from signal failure. • § 233.7 requires each railroad to report signal failures within 15 days in accordance with the instructions printed on Form FRA F 6180.14. • § 235.5 requires railroads to apply for FRA approval to discontinue or materially modify railroad signal systems. • § 235.8 allows railroads to seek relief from the requirements in 49 CFR part 236. • § 235.20 describes the protest process, including essential information that must be included in the protest, the address for filing the protest, the time limit for filing the protest, and the requirement that a protestant requesting a public hearing explain why written statements cannot be used to explain his or her position. • § 236.110 requires that the results of signal system tests required under §§ 236.102–109; §§ 236.376–387; §§ 236.576–577; and §§ 236.586–589 be recorded on pre-printed forms provided by the railroad or by electronic means, subject to FRA approval. • Finally, § 236.590 requires railroads to clean and inspect the automatic train stop, train control, or cab signal pneumatic apparatus on locomotives and then record the results of the inspection as required by § 229.29(a).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501-3520, and its 
implementing regulations, 5 CFR part 1320, require Federal agencies to 
provide 60-days' notice to the public to allow comment on information 
collection activities before seeking OMB approval of the activities. 
See 44 U.S.C. 3506, 3507; 5 CFR 1320.8 through 1320.12. Specifically, 
FRA invites interested parties to comment on the following ICR 
regarding: (1) Whether the

[[Page 58722]]

information collection activities are necessary for FRA to properly 
execute its functions, including whether the activities will have 
practical utility; (2) the accuracy of FRA's estimates of the burden of 
the information collection activities, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used to determine the estimates; (3) ways 
for FRA to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information

    FRA believes that soliciting public comment may reduce the 
administrative and paperwork burdens associated with the collection of 
information that Federal regulations mandate. In summary, FRA reasons 
that comments received will advance three objectives: (1) Reduce 
reporting burdens; (2) organize information collection requirements in 
a ``user-friendly'' format to improve the use of such information; and 
(3) accurately assess the resources expended to retrieve and produce 
information requested. See 44 U.S.C. 3501.
    The summary below describes the ICR that FRA will submit for OMB 
clearance as the PRA requires:
    Title: Railroad Signal System.
    OMB Control Number: 2130-0006.
    Abstract: The information collected under 49 CFR parts 233, 235, 
and 236 is used by FRA to monitor railroad compliance with FRA's 
inspection and testing requirements for signal systems, as well as to 
review and approve railroad requests to discontinue or materially 
modify existing signal systems. The information collected is also used 
by FRA to monitor signal failures (e.g., failure of a signal appliance, 
device, method, or system to function or indicate as required by 49 CFR 
part 236 that results in a more favorable aspect than intended or other 
condition hazardous to the movement of a train).
    For instance:
     Sec.  233.5 requires each railroad to report to FRA within 
24 hours after learning of an accident or incident arising from signal 
failure.
     Sec.  233.7 requires each railroad to report signal 
failures within 15 days in accordance with the instructions printed on 
Form FRA F 6180.14.
     Sec.  235.5 requires railroads to apply for FRA approval 
to discontinue or materially modify railroad signal systems.
     Sec.  235.8 allows railroads to seek relief from the 
requirements in 49 CFR part 236.
     Sec.  235.20 describes the protest process, including 
essential information that must be included in the protest, the address 
for filing the protest, the time limit for filing the protest, and the 
requirement that a protestant requesting a public hearing explain why 
written statements cannot be used to explain his or her position.
     Sec.  236.110 requires that the results of signal system 
tests required under Sec. Sec.  236.102-109; Sec. Sec.  236.376-387; 
Sec. Sec.  236.576-577; and Sec. Sec.  236.586-589 be recorded on pre-
printed forms provided by the railroad or by electronic means, subject 
to FRA approval.
     Finally, Sec.  236.590 requires railroads to clean and 
inspect the automatic train stop, train control, or cab signal 
pneumatic apparatus on locomotives and then record the results of the 
inspection as required by Sec.  229.29(a).
    Type of Request: Extension without change (with changes in 
estimates) of a currently approved collection.
    Affected Public: Businesses.
