Agency Information Collection Activity Under OMB Review

AGENCY: Federal Transit Administration, DOT.

ACTION: Notice of request for comments.


SUMMARY: In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 
U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), this notice announces that the Information 
Collection Requirements (ICRs) abstracted below have been forwarded to 
the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and comment. The 
ICRs describe the nature of the information collections and their 
expected burdens. The Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment 
period soliciting comments on the following collections of information 
was published on May 9, 2016 (81 FR 28157).

DATES: Comments must be submitted on or before November 2, 2016.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Tia Swain, Office of Administration, 
Management Planning Division, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., Mail Stop 
TAD-10, Washington, DC 20590 (202) 366-0354.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), 
Public Law 104-13, Section 2, 109 Stat. 163 (1995) (codified as revised 
at 44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), and its implementing regulations, 5 CFR part 
1320, require Federal agencies to issue two notices seeking public 
comment on information collection activities before OMB may approve 
paperwork packages. 44 U.S.C. 3506, 3507; 5 CFR 1320.5, 1320.8(d)(1), 
1320.12. On May 9, 2016, FTA published a 60-day notice (81 FR 28157) in 
the Federal Register soliciting comments on the ICR that the agency was 
seeking OMB approval. FTA received no comments after issuing this 60-
day notice. Accordingly, DOT announces that these information 
collection activities have been re-evaluated and certified under 5 CFR 
1320.5(a) and forwarded to OMB for review and approval pursuant to 5 
CFR 1320.12(c).
    Before OMB decides whether to approve these proposed collections of 
information, it must provide 30 days for public comment. 44 U.S.C. 
3507(b); 5 CFR 1320.12(d). Federal law requires OMB to approve or 
disapprove paperwork packages between 30 and 60 days after the 30 day 
notice is

published. 44 U.S.C. 3507(b)-(c); 5 CFR 1320.12(d); see also 60 FR 
44978, 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. OMB believes that the 30 day notice 
informs the regulated community to file relevant comments and affords 
the agency adequate time to digest public comments before it renders a 
decision. 60 FR 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. Therefore, respondents should 
submit their respective comments to OMB within 30 days of publication 
to best ensure having their full effect. 5 CFR 1320.12(c); see also 60 
FR 44983, Aug. 29, 1995.
    The summaries below describe the nature of the information 
collection requirements (ICRs) and the expected burden. The 
requirements are being submitted for clearance by OMB as required by 
the PRA.
    Title: 49 U.S.C. Section 5337, the State of Good Repair Grants 
    OMB Control Number: 2132-0577.
    Type of Request: Extension without change of a currently approved 
information collection.
    Abstract: 49 U.S.C. Section 5337, the State of Good Repair Grants 
Program was authorized by Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century 
(MAP-21). It was reauthorized under the Fixing America's Surface 
Transportation (FAST) Act Section 3015. This program authorizes the 
Secretary of Transportation to make grants to designated recipients to 
maintain, replace, and rehabilitate high intensity fixed guideway 
systems and high intensity motorbus systems. Eligible recipients 
include state and local government authorities in urbanized areas with 
high intensity fixed guideway systems and/or high intensity motorbus 
systems operating for at least seven years. Projects are funded at 80 
percent federal with a 20 percent local match requirement by statute. 
FTA will apportion funds to designated recipients. The designated 
recipients will then allocate funds as appropriate to recipients that 
are public entities in the urbanized areas. FTA can make grants to 
direct recipients after sub- allocation of funds. Recipients apply for 
grants electronically, and FTA collects milestone and financial status 
reports from designated recipients on a quarterly basis. The 
information submitted ensures FTA's compliance with applicable federal 
    Annual Estimated Total Burden Hours: 9,120 hours.

ADDRESSES:  All written comments must refer to the docket number that 
appears at the top of this document and be submitted to the Office of 
Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 
725 17th Street NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention: FTA Desk Officer. 
Alternatively, comments may be sent via email to the Office of 
Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), Office of Management and 
Budget, at the following address: oira_submissions@omb.eop.gov.
    Comments are Invited on: Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the Department, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; the accuracy of the Department's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility, 
and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize 
the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including 
the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology. A comment to OMB is best assured of having its 
full effect if OMB receives it within 30 days of publication of this 
notice in the Federal Register.

William Hyre,
Deputy Associate Administrator for Administration.
