Proposed Agency Information Collection Activities; Comment Request
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 and its implementing regulations, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) hereby announces that it is seeking renewal of the following currently approved information collection activities. Before submitting these information collection requirements for clearance by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), FRA is soliciting public comment on specific aspects of the activities identified below.
Adjustments to the Minimum and Maximum Civil Monetary Penalties for Violations of Federal Railroad Safety Laws or Federal Railroad Administration Safety Regulations; Correction
On December 30, 2008, FRA published a final rule, pursuant to two statutes, which increased the minimum, ordinary maximum, and aggravated maximum civil monetary penalty it may apply when assessing a civil penalty for a violation of a railroad safety statute or regulation under its authority. (73 FR 79698). In preparing that final rule for publication, an error was made: FRA instructed that the numerical amount ``$16,000'' be removed from footnote 1 of appendix A to 49 CFR part 232 of the final rule and the numerical amount ``$25,000'' be added in its place. The instruction should have directed the removal of the numerical amount ``$11,000'' and the addition of ``$25,000'' in its place.
