Notice and request for comments.
The FMCSA announces that the Information Collection Request (ICR) described in this notice is being sent to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval. The FMCSA is requesting OMB's continued approval of the information that is required for Commercial Driver Licensing and Test Standards. The ICR describes the information collection and its expected burden. We are required to send ICRs to OMB under the Paperwork Reduction Act. The FMCSA published the required Federal Register notice offering a 60-day comment period on this information collection on May 7, 2001 (66 FR 23082). No comments were received during this comment period. However, one comment was received after the docket closed. Because of the tardiness of the comment, an evident misunderstanding of the proper procedure to use for calculation of burden hours, and several remarks addressed to the CDL program in general rather than the information collection burden, FMCSA will respond directly to the submitter rather than discuss the comment in this notice. A copy of FMCSA's response to this comment will be provided to Docket No. FMCSA-2000-8210.
