30-Day Notice of Intent To Seek Extension of Approval and Merger of Collections: Statutory Licensing Authority
As part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork burdens, and as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), the Surface Transportation Board (STB or Board) gives notice that it is requesting from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) an extension of approval for the information collections required from those seeking licensing authority under 49 U.S.C. 10901-03 and consolidation authority under sections 11323-26. The Board is also seeking approval to merge into this collection (OMB Control Number: 2140-0023) the collection of information about interchange commitments (OMB Control Number: 2140-0016). The Board previously published a notice about this collection on January 26, 2017 in the Federal Register. That notice allowed for a 60- day public review and comment period. No comments were received.
