In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 and its implementing regulations, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) hereby announces that it is seeking an extension of the following currently approved information collection activities. On May 7, 2014, the Secretary of Transportation issued Emergency Order Docket No. DOT- OST-2014-0067 (EO), requiring affected railroad carriers to provide certain information to the State Emergency Response Commissions (SERCs) for each State in which their trains carrying 1 million gallons or more of Bakken crude oil travel. The information collection activities associated with the Secretary's Emergency Order received a six-month emergency approval from OMB on May 10, 2014. FRA seeks a regular clearance (extension of the current approval for three years) while it is determining the proper course of action to take after a recent series of train accidents involving the transportation petroleum crude oil, a hazardous material the transportation of which is regulated by the Department of Transportation. 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.
