FRA ICR for Reporting Alleged Violations
Today the Federal Railroad Administration published in the Federal Register a 30-day notice for a new information collection request to be submitted to the Office of Management and Budget. The new ICR would allow the FRA to use an on-line form to collect information on allegations of “potential violations of Federal railroad safety and hazardous materials transportation laws, regulations, and orders to the Federal Railroad Administration”. This reporting capability is required by the Rail Safety Improvement Act of 2008. The 60-day comment period for this ICR was published in the Federal Register on April 8, 2010 (75 FR 18012). No comments were received on that notice by the June 7th closing date. Comments on this notice should be sent via email to email@example.com, referencing the OMB control number (2130-New). The docket number provided in the notice should not be used as it is not the correct docket number for this ICR; the correct docket number is FRA-2010-0005-0008.
