Notice and request for comments.
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FMCSA announces its plan to submit the Information Collection Request (ICR) described below to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for its review and approval and invites public comment. The FMCSA requests approval to revise and extend the, ``Annual Report of Class I and Class II Motor Carriers of Property'' ICR, OMB Control No. 2126-0032. This ICR is necessary to ensure that motor carriers comply with FMCSA's financial and operating statistics requirements at chapter III of title 49 CFR part 369 titled, ``Reports of Motor Carriers.'' This ICR is being revised to incorporate the OMB approved ``Annual Report of Class I Motor Carriers of Passengers'' ICR, OMB Control No. 2126-0031, for use of the MP-1 form, the ``Annual Report Form (Motor Carriers of Passengers),'' which resulted in only two respondents and one burden hour per year. Through the proposed merger of the two ICRs, FMCSA would rename the OMB Control No. 2126-0032 ICR as the ``Annual Report of Class I and Class II For-Hire Motor Carriers'' ICR. Such a merger with the new title will clarify that the combined ICR addresses both for- hire property and passenger carriers, but not private motor carriers. Additionally, after the merger of the ICRs, FMCSA intends to request withdrawal of the previously approved ``Annual Report of Class I Motor Carriers of Passengers'' ICR, OMB Control No. 2126-0031.
