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, 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 ICR describe the nature of the 
information collection 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 January 22, 2018.

DATES: Comments must be submitted on or before June 7, 2018.

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.

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 or tia.swain@dot.gov.

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 January 22, 2018, FTA published a 60-day notice (83 FR 
3050) in the Federal Register soliciting comments on the ICR that the 
agency was seeking OMB approval. FTA received (1) comment after issuing 
this 60-day notice. However, that comment was posted three days after 
the comment period expired and the comment was outside the scope of the 
Paperwork Reduction Act and made no reference to the grant program or 
any FTA related programs. 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; see also 60 FR 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. Therefore, respondents 
should submit their

[[Page 20911]]

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 5320 Paul S. Sarbanes Transit in Parks.
    OMB Control Number: 2132-0574.
    Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved information 
    Abstract: Section 3021 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, 
Efficient Transportation Equity Act--A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU), 
as amended, established the Paul S. Sarbanes Transit in Parks Program 
(Transit in Parks Program--49 U.S.C. 5320). The program was 
administered by FTA in partnership with the Department of the Interior 
(DOI) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Forest Service. The 
program provided grants to Federal land management agencies that manage 
an eligible area, including but not limited to the National Park 
Service, the Fish and Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Land Management, 
the Forest Service, the Bureau of Reclamation; and State, tribal and 
local governments with jurisdiction over land in the vicinity of an 
eligible area, acting with the consent of a Federal land management 
agency, alone or in partnership with a Federal land management agency 
or other governmental or non-governmental participant. The purpose of 
the program was to provide for the planning and capital costs of 
alternative transportation systems that will enhance the protection of 
national parks and Federal lands; increase the enjoyment of visitors' 
experience by conserving natural, historical, and cultural resources; 
reduce congestion and pollution; improve visitor mobility and 
accessibility; enhance visitor experience; and ensure access to all, 
including persons with disabilities. The Paul S. Sarbanes Transit in 
the Parks program was repealed under the Moving Ahead for Progress in 
the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). However, funds previously authorized for 
programs repealed by MAP-21 remain available for their originally 
authorized purposes until the period of availability expires, the funds 
are fully expended, the funds are rescinded by Congress, or the funds 
are otherwise reallocated.
    Annual Estimated Total Burden Hours: 50 hours.

William Hyre,
Deputy Associate Administrator for Administration.
